The Movielife Announce More Reunion Shows

As you may or may not know, The Movielife have proclaimed their triumphant return from the depths of Long Island recently. To celebrate this, the band announced two NYC reunion shows in early February, which are currently both sold out. Do not fear, fans, especially ones in the Philadelphia and California area, for the band […]

Michael Stipe

R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe Played a Surprise Set in NYC, Covered Perfume Genius and Frank Sinatra

R.E.M. broke up in 2011. It was a sad time, the end of a profound musical reign, but somewhat deserved since the band worked so hard for decades. Earlier this week, though, frontman Michael Stipe returned to the stage and performed in concert much to the surprise of those in the audience. On Monday night, […]

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. U2 are throwing a surprise World AIDS Day (RED) performance in the city, but since Bono’s bike accident on […]

UTG PHOTOS: Limp Bizkit & Machine Gun Kelly (10/8/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Best Buy Theater in Times Square to photograph Limp Bizkit on October 8, 2014. If anyone would’ve told me that in 2014 I’d be losing my mind at a sold-out Limp Bizkit show, I would’ve told them that they’re crazy. Believe it or not, that’s exactly what […]

Ayler Young Offers A Pop-Heavy Take On Funk With “You Can’t Buy Love”

At the beginning of the summer, the editors of UTG held a digital meeting to discuss our plans for the future. At the very top of the list was increasing our focus on in-depth content, and following not far behind was a universal desire to expose more up-and-coming artists to our readers. We like to […]

LIVE REVIEW: The Early November @ The Studio At Webster Hall (7/16/14)

There’s a certain sense of pride that comes with singing along to every single song at a show. Coming out of The Early November‘s set last Wednesday night made me wish I were a bigger fan who vicariously sang along to every word like everyone else in the room did. The good vibes were irrevocable, […]

UTG PHOTOS: Governors Ball Music Festival

Under The Gun sent photographer, Nick Karp, to Randall’s Island in New York City to photograph the Governors Ball Music Festival. Much has changed since I attended the first Governors Ball Music Festival, including (thankfully) a new location, more days added to the festival, and there no longer being the gimmick of “No Overlapping Set times.” The market […]

Masked Intruder Presents: ‘Mugshots And Masks: Part 2’

Last week, UTG TV and Masked Intruder teamed up to bring you round one of our Mugshots and Masks series. Today, we bring you round two. To be honest, I decided to approach interviewing the guys in Masked Intruder in an unorthodox fashion because it didn’t seem easy to stay on track and have a […]

Masked Intruder Presents: ‘Mugshots & Masks: Part 1’

What does Masked Intruder think of the criminal mischief of Justin Bieber and Coolio? Can anyone help the blue intruder get in touch with Lindsay Lohan? Last week, UTG TV got the chance to sit down and hang out with the colors of Masked Intruder before their set in New York City. Prior to taking […]
