FYF Fest is this Saturday, September 4th in a rad LA park. Man Man & Off! are playing, plus nine million other awesome bands. I'm soooooo there. You should be, too. Tickets are a mere $25. You have that. Come on.
It's been a very, much too long break between the last blog entry and this one right now! Some of you may or may not know, but I was on the Vans Warped Tour all summer long doing photos and videos for two months of the entire two-month stretch. Needless to say, it's a job that takes all of my day out on the road so the little music blog that could was forced to
Light and Noise TV posted this interview with Billy & Greg from Dillinger - few cool moments with the band. Part two of the Dillinger interview is on RaRaRa's Vimeo.
That about says it. Their tour starts tomorrow 8/19/10 in Ventura, CA. Pick up tickets for the upcoming shows BadBrains.com.We did a Bad Brains show in Phoenix earlier this year for PHX AM, and it still looks like this video from 1982. We are banned from having events at that venue ever again. Awesome. Check out photos from that show on Vans Flickr.

The UK is totally going to get lucky in October & November. Trash Talk & Cancer Bats are touring together. Trash Talk has been keeping busy in the meantime. The band isn't farting around doing nothing. They keep a good blog with nice photos of everywhere they've been touring. Have a look. Trash Talk just played some crazy festival on a cliff. Look at that photo, America. No guard rails. That's how they thin the herd over there.I'm
Those two subjects actually do have much to do with one another. In case you're not aware, FTSK are good hearted dudes who keep a donations jar at their merch booth for a charity they have a soft spot for. The proceeds from this little jar have added up to seven wells either being dug or repaired in small villages in the Central African Republic. You will never guess where that country is.Here's a photo of the seventh well and
After the tragic passing of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan in late 2009 the band didn't know if they could continue. They'd already been writing their new album and were nearing completion when they got the news. 'We were going to see if we could write another song or two,' says Shadows of the days following the Rev's death. 'And we couldn't. We weren't in the mood for it. Sitting there trying to figure out chord progressions and
Each week mtvU lets you vote for up & comers to add into the rotation on the network. This week Gilbere Forte & his video "All Black Chukkas" has a great chance to win a spot. Its going to be a tight race for the Philly kid so take a second and help him out. I'm sure he'd give each & every one of you a cheesesteak if he could - unless you're a vegetarian. In that case, a slab
The Death Set played Jelly NYC's Pool Parties at East River Park last Sunday July 25th in Brooklyn. Dan, Johnny, and Jahphet aka Roofeeo, of course, were batsh*t crazy. Our friend Colin Devin Moore shot a bunch of photos of their set. Then, he ran them down for the most uninformative interview in the history of man. At some point shortly after this interview the crowd went over to Brooklyn Bowl where Johnny threw a bowling ball at Japhet. So
