TMZ posted this footage of Guns N Roses live from France. Much attention has been brought to how Axl Rose looks recently. Apparently some don’t think he has aged very well. Regardless, watch as the iconic front man trips during this performance.

There have been a few shows that I’ve really looked forward to this year. Bjork, Young the Giant, Sleigh Bells, and this one: Santigold.
After a nice set by up and comer Charli XCX, Santigold took the stage complete with back up dancers so full of swagger, they almost stole the show. She opened with the first song off of Master of My Make Believe-Go! – that set the stage for a fun a raucous show. Everyone around me began to dance and kept it up for the majority of her set. The dance party continued through her most recognizable song, L.E.S. Artists and into the first big sing along by the crowd Say Aha.
Santi isn’t Read more
Seattle’s Minus The Bear have just released details on their fifth full length album. Infinity Overhead will drop August 28th on Dangerbird Records.
Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire is the living essence of Brooklyn. He’s taking the borough to new heights with a new spin on a classic formula. Brooklyn is known for her showstoppingly gifted story tellers and party rockers — from Big Daddy Kane to Jay Z to Notorious BIG — and eXquire is that rare talent who can entertain and make your mind race at the same time. He’s an artist, while a lot of these latter-day emcees are mere painters–individuals who have a skill but who aren’t MASTERFUL. eX’s vocal patterns often communicate the unspoken rather eloquently. It’s as if his rhymes can read your mind. Tour dates listed below.

Review and Photos by special guest correspondent Michel Dussack
Much in the way that Foster the People crafted a perfect summer song with ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, Cincinnati, Ohio based Walk The Moon have been gained massive amounts of recognition for their absolute standout summer hit ‘Anna Sun’. In fact, both Seventeen Magazine and MTV have both voted the song as the official ‘Song of the Summer’. On June 19th, the band released their self-titled album, and in celebration of the release played on David Letterman. After the Letterman taping, the band heading to New York’s tiny Mercury Lounge to play an album release party. It was fitting that the band took the stage a bit after 11:20 pm, as half of their set was technically performed on the first day of summer.

We first discovered Terrible Things at last year’s (2011) Van’s Warped Tour. It was there we watched their live performance, and were able to interview it’s founder Fred Mascherino. Alternative Press is now reporting that the band will once again be touring. They have a small handful of upcoming dates in North America. This is in addition to a newly revamped line up, consisting of Aaron Van Allen (background vocals, bassist) and Steve Curtiss (drummer).
And while everyone in the music biz were in Austin during SXSW, they were in the studio working on new material.
Fans will be able to catch the band on their first headlining trek kicking off on July 11. The dates are as follows:
July 11 Chameleon Club – Lancaster, PA w/ The Company We Keep
July 12 Mexical Live – Teaneck, NJ w/ The Company We Keep
July 14 Saint Vitus Bar – Brooklyn, NY w/ Brian Carley (Penfold)
July 15 Gunner’s Run – Philadelphia, PA w/ The Company We Keep (FREE Show)
North by Northeast returned to Toronto for the 18th straight year, bringing with it 800 bands for five consecutive days of music insanity, an almost +25% increase from 2011. Unlike its sister festival to the South (by Southwest), no matter how many artists play, films are screened or even interactive conferences are held, it is incredibly difficult for any event to stand out in Canada’s largest city. On Saturday, June 16th for example, in addition to NXNE’s marquee concert at Yonge-Dundas Square with The Flaming Lips, Toronto also welcomed Lady Antebellum at the Molson Amphitheatre, Canadian comedian Russell Peters at Air Canada Centre, and shut down a good chunk of Queen Street West in anticipation of the MuchMusic Video Awards the next night. On top of all this, Radiohead were supposed to perform in front of 40,000 or so fans in a field on the city’s northern border, but more on that later. Read more
From the outside, suburban life is easy-peasy: white picket fences, immaculately trimmed lawns, kids who say things like “I’m going out to play ball!” and “I love you, mom and dad!” Picture-perfect Americana. But with the new video for RACES‘ dreampop single “Lies,” frontman Wade Ryff exposes the toxicity that insularity can breed, and what turmoil lies beneath the squeaky-clean facade.
For this video, RACES teamed up with director Edward Chase Masterson, who directed their previous music video for Big Broom. The band is excited to premiere the video for Lies on Noisey / Vice.
Wade Ryff of RACES says, “It was sort of surreal shooting this video for a number of reasons. For one, it was shot in the suburbs most of us grew up in, not even a mile from the the Sears dressing room in which I graduated from a teenager to a man, or so i thought. But also because there became this sense that we had entered the belly of the beast that feeds on the paranoia of those living in a lie. The irony of such an idealistic and peaceful neighborhood being inhabited by residents who seemed so scared to live there was something that really spoke to some of the most recent social issues that abstractly inspired this video.” Tour dates listed below.

The visceral Brooklyn duo, Hunters, is gearing up to tour across the East Coast and Midwest this July in support of noise rock heavyweights A Place to Bury Strangers. Their 2011 EP Hands On Fire (produced by James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is 14 minutes of sonic fury that’s filled with growling riffs and unforgettable hooks. The raw energy of Derek Watson and Isabel Almeida builds tension by repeating lines to each other until it’s released in a fury of reverb drenched guitars and bodies being strewn across the stage. The band has been praised by The New York Times, Brooklyn Vegan, RCRD LBL and was tapped to open for The Kills on their 10th anniversary tour this spring. The string of dates kicks off July 16th at The Basement in Columbus, Ohio – scroll down for dates.
