Howler Blasts Death By Audio to Smithereens, They Wish: 1.19.12

post image

America Give Up, indeed. Since the Strokes and the long-lost Libertines have lost their relevancy, perhaps we do need a new bunch of 19-year-olds to shake up the basics of rock and roll for the younger set, proving that there’s still plenty to be said for rollicking choruses, simple guitar chords and comedic banter. Howler is clearly cocky frontman Jordan Gatesmith’s project, though his band mates Ian Nygaard (guitar), France Camp (bass), Max Petrek (keyboards) and Brent Mayes (drums) are the perfect backdrop, filling out Howler’s sound and making the set come alive like a boys’ bratty party on stage.

McCaulay Culkin was going upstairs to the theater carrying a glass of champagne, so I followed him. What would you do? If this was a make your own adventure novel, this page would only have one option: you follow McCaulay Culkin upstairs to the movie theater. There, most of the cast of The Wrong Ferarri were near their seats.

Events This Weekend: a Bunch of Bloody Stuff To Go To

Events are little pillboxes from which we tweet, ROFL and roll. I sometimes wish that people tweeted less while at one, but then again, how would I know if the beer is already gone or if there is an actual fire at the back entrance? Also, I’m a hypocrite. In the coming days we have a few events that we’re excited to share with you. So share we shall .

SXSW 2010: Thursday, March 18

We may have arrived in Austin one day into the festival, but our first 24 hours of SXSW 2010 were almost more than we bargained for. This dilemma was aptly summarized by the singer of Fucked Up, Father Damian / Pink Eyes, when he growled to the crowd: “Hey, it’s Austin! It’s SXSW! It’s either booze or cocaine, right?”

Adam Green: On the Fringe

post image

Is Adam Green’s life a veritable oyster of the rocker life? Just take spy into his baby, the eye candy and Dada poem of a “blogge” known as The Lake Room, and it seems as if his whim-filled days are lived to the fullest alongside not-so-under-the-radar friends like The Shining Twins and Har Mar Superstar, usually while touring and rescuing random, cute strangers.
