With a stacked line-up of rock, hip-hop, EDM, and of course some good ole’ Louisiana jams, the 16th annual Voodoo Music + Arts Experience hit New Orleans with a bang this past weekend. Friday brought Outkast and Halloween costumes galore. Saturday was Skrillex and 30 Seconds to Mars and to close things out on Sunday, [...]

The boys from Walk the Moon stopped by the Ready Room last night for an upbeat, energetic and fan-pleasing set. With a mix of new music and older hits like ‘Anna Sun’ and ‘Tightrope,’ the Cincinatti-quartet proved that they aren’t going to stop rocking any time soon. All photos below by Brian Benton.

It is, in the cheesiest way possible, quite fitting thatTemples played the Old Rock House on this visit to St. Louis. The Kettering, UK-based band quite literally play old rock — glam-acid psychedelia straight out of 1960, down to the leather and charm. In May, Temples visited the Firebird, and I would bet their next visit [...]

It is always a little jarring to see a club totally empty. The bar tender starts playing with their cell phone, the bands who are preparing to play walk aimlessly around, trying to decide whether to hold out for more people to show up or to just close their eyes and pretend it is a [...]

Rise Against are one of those bands that will always remind me of my childhood. ‘Swing Life Away’ hits a special chord. Photos here from Rise Against’s stop in St. Louis with Touche Amore and local legends Radkey.

Speaking of Radio Silence, check out this aptly named new track from Frightened Rabbit. Scott Hutchinson maintains his spot as the world’s greatest buzz kill, with an unparalleled knack for making super depressing music. This is the kind of music that just doesn’t quite feel right to listen to when you’re in a good mood, [...]

Get ready for some new (KCV), Wash. U.’s second-most-popular (but my favorite) producer behind 3LAU, who made an appearance on campus a week and a half ago. We’ll see what he has to offer in his first installment of (Parentheses Are Mandatory) here. He’s also opening for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at WUStock on March 24, [...]

I’ll be honest. I’m tired of going to EDM shows that are just a guy behind a table with flashing lights playing the same Avicii and Daft Punk snippets. That’s why Krewella was a refreshing change of pace. Live vocals. Original songs. And not just one sweaty dude. Krewella isn’t especially emotive or deep in [...]
