UTG PHOTOS: Muse in Newark, New Jersey (01/29/16)

Under The Gun Review sent photographer MJ Rawls to The Prudential Center in NJ to shoot Muse on their ‘Drones’ tour. There are some concerts that feel like your typical night out. You know, the pause, the looking down at your phone, and the waiting for the band to play that favorite song for you […]

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 […]

CONCERT REVIEW: David Bazan Band – ‘Control’ Tenth Anniversary

There are only a handful of concerts that can be more than a fun night out for you and whoever you show go with. When I saw Jeff Mangum, it meant the world to me because those songs meant the world to me, and I never thought I would have the opportunity to see him […]

CONCERT REVIEW: Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival

Do you remember Vader from WWF? Basically, nothing’s more metal than overweight bald white guys in sleeveless Slayer shirts with handlebar mustaches. Also, fuck $12 beers! I attended the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this past Sunday, July 1 in Mountain View, California where I had the opportunity to see inured metal acts such as […]

LIVE REVIEW: The Dear Hunter (8/10/11)

Artist: The Dear Hunter Venue: Middle East (Downstairs) – Cambridge, MA Date: 8-10-11 There is somewhat of a double edged sword that follows working in the music industry. The more you work, the more access you have, but the more access you have, the more work that generally ensues. Nothing comes for free in this […]

Tour: Scream It Like You Mean It Bands: Breathe Carolina, Chiodos, I See Stars, And More Date: 8-20-11 Arriving to The Majestic on a humid Saturday night at the Scream It Like You Mean It Tour, I braced myself for the onslaught of breakdowns I would be experiencing in the coming hours. There was honestly […]

LIVE REVIEW: Dirt Fest 2011

Dirt Fest Birch Run, MI August 13, 2011 It started like any other stormy Michigan morning, cloudy and cold with spurts of rain here and there.
