ABC Best Of The Year Part 2: Elliott Smith, Fidlar, Perfume Genius And Hanni El Khatib

By Alyson Camus | December 22, 2015

Some new and old stuff, but overall some very good stuff!

FIDLAR And Bully Cover The Magnetic Fields’ ‘Absolutely Cuckoo’

By Alyson Camus | November 12, 2015

Never mind, the two punk bands decided to cover the Magnetic Fields song and the result is actually fun, while giving to the ’69 Love Songs’ earworm an Island vibe, yes the tune would actually go very well with Carper’s Hawaiian shirts

Watch FIDLAR’s Homage-To-The-90’s New Video For ’40oz on Repeat’

By Alyson Camus | June 3, 2015

In the late 90s and early 2000s, music videos were such a huge deal. We decided that instead of making one overly slick music video, we would nod to 15 of our favorite music videos that we grew up with. Everyone in the band threw in their ideas.’

My Best Of Burgerama 4

By Alyson Camus | April 1, 2015

The nice people at Burgerama gave me a photo pass so I had access to the photo pit, which is certainly a delight but also a terrible temptation to take as many pictures as possible… This is just what I did, and I ended up with hundreds of photos to sort out today! The pictures reflect the best moments of these two days

Burgerama 4, Saturday March 28th 2015, Part 2

By Alyson Camus | March 31, 2015

I thought for a minute I knew all the songs of Weezer, but I realized it was because the band may have played all its greatest hits… From ‘My Name is Jonas’ to ‘Hash Pipe’, ‘El Scorcho’, ‘Go Away’, ‘Island in the Sun’, ‘Beverly Hills’, ‘Say it Ain’t so’, ‘Pork and Beans’, ‘Undone’, ‘Buddy Holly’, yes it was a real crowd pleaser

10 Songs: Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

By Iman Lababedi | January 27, 2015

Wake Shake Bake – Fidlar – The popular pop punk band’s ode to intoxicants like Wavves never realized the limitations of being young and dumb. Like the man said, you’re never too old to enjoy dumb entertainment… so enjoy – B+

The Frights, Meatbodies, FIDLAR At The Regent, Friday January 23rd 2015

By Alyson Camus | January 26, 2015

Last night was a triumphant repeat of that same chaos, a celebration of youth exuberance and recklessness, also amplified by the two other bands opening for them.

FIDLAR Is Having Fun With An Old Sheryl Crow Song

By Alyson Camus | January 19, 2015

Rather playful and cool at the beginning, the song becomes a sort of freak-out ear-splitting noise pop tune, with outbursts of raw and loud screams in the chorus. The funny thing is that they synced their version to the original Sheryl Crow’s video so she seems to be doing this abrasive hyper-saturated yelling

My Best Concerts of 2014 (Part 1)

By Alyson Camus | December 28, 2014

Nick Cave: I saw him twice this year, and it was totally spectacular because I even met him in person! First, at the Los Angeles premiere of his fake autobiographical movie, ‘20,000 days on Earth’ at the Egyptian theater on June 10th

Burgerama III Day 2 At The Observatory (Part Two)

By Alyson Camus | March 27, 2014

After the 3-song-allowed in the pit, I was once again condemned to back up on the side, but this time, for some obscure reasons, they let me climb on stage, and I stayed there with a bunch of people, just behind the band, totally overwhelmed by the formidable energy.

Cherry Glazerr, Cheatahs, And Fidlar At the Echoplex, Thursday February 27th 2014

By Alyson Camus | March 2, 2014

My whole body still hurts from what happened last night, I am much older than all these young kids, and standing in line for 3 hours then fighting the crazy moshing-jumping-pushing crowd inside the Echoplex was a bit too much, but it was well worth it

My Ten Best Concerts Of 2013

By Alyson Camus | December 12, 2013

I got to see them at the Jimmy Kimmel Live on July 29th, and managed to bump (almost) into Josh Homme’s giant body when exiting the green room. But seriously, these guys have a mega-monster sound, they blow up the roof even when there’s none

They Are All Big Now But We Got Them First

By Alyson Camus | November 22, 2013

I am sure I am not only speaking for myself, but it seems to me that an awful number of bands we have covered in their early days, have now officially reached the success status

Listen To FIDLAR's Gentle Cover Of Elliott Smith's Whatever (Folk Song in C)’

By Alyson Camus | October 30, 2013

They play the tune very gently, close to the way Elliott was playing it. Zac Carper takes his most fragile-broken-tired voice whereas the soothing guitars and beach-like noise in the background fit perfectly the melancholic, intimate and sweet ambiance of the song

FIDLAR At Artopia, Thursday May 16th 2013

By Alyson Camus | May 19, 2013

New York (or New Jersey should I say?) has intellectual punk Titus Andronicus making all these references to Albert Camus and Shakespeare. Los Angeles has riotous punk FIDLAR making references to coke, weed, skates and cheap beers… Both bands are young and bring tons of punk energy to their shows but don’t seem to come from the same place… existentialism versus teenage boredom,
