It’s not exactly a reunion, nor are there definite plans for Long Island post-hardcore five-piece Envy On The Coast to reunite for the time being; however, two former members who have since formed 1ST VOWS gave fans a treat during their encore set in New York City earlier this week by performing EOTC tracks “The […]

Kanye West is Playing a Free Show in Times Square Tonight

A free Kanye West show seems too good to be true. Tonight, however, is the real deal. Kanye West will perform in New York City’s Times Square at 7:30PM as a part of the World AIDS Day Concert.

LIVE REVIEW: Riot Fest Denver (Days 2 & 3)

I was so proud of myself for waking up the morning after my first night at Riot Fest Denver and cranking out my review of ‘Day 1’ that I believed wholeheartedly I would be able to repeat that act the following two days. “I’ll be the first to press ‘post’ out of every journalist there,” […]


Ray LaMontagne Stops Concert While Couple Continues Talking In The Front Row, Refuses To Resume Until They Leave

The number one unwritten rule of attending any live performance is making sure you show the person/group performing a little respect.

Last night, Ray LaMontagne took his summer […]


UTG INTERVIEW: Glass Animals Discuss ‘Zaba’ and Touring the US

GOD SAVE SLIM SHADY: Eminem Announces Show At Wembley Stadium In London

Are you British? Do you love Eminem? Then you’re in luck. Unfortunately, I’m in New York, so I doubt I’ll be making this specific show.

Son Lux

LIVE REVIEW: Son Lux @ Institute Of Contemporary Art (3/21/14)

Out of all the acts listed on Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art 2014 schedule, experimental electronic musician Son Lux was easily the most thrilling prospect. As a giant glass cube, the ICA is one of Boston’s more modern buildings, only rivaled by MIT’s Stata Center. Son Lux, the stage name for 34-year-old Ryan Lott, blended in with the museum’s hidden […]
