throwback thursday

Since April begins with the lightheartedness of April Fool’s Day, it seems fitting to write a piece about music’s most famous fool, or in this case clown, Pagliaccio. Operas have phased out of popular culture as of late with the rise of musicals as the popular medium of combining theatre and music. This decline is, […]

In light of many recent events, Kanye West has gotten a bit of a bad rep. This is not to say that he has not earned the controversy sparked by his statements, but it is not to say that his legacy should be tarnished either. He is a musician -a famous musician- and I understand […]

Since it’s Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fitting to look back and give thanks to a band that seems to have fallen out of the mainstream conversation of 70s rock, Redbone. The Native American rock band would go on to become one of the hidden gems of the musical renaissance of the late-60s and […]

Lady Gaga Lady Gaga is known for her takeover of the airways from 2008 with pop hits like “Just Dance,” “Pokerface,” and “Telephone,” some of the biggest hits of our childhoods/early teen years. Ever wonder what she’s up to these days? Not only did Gaga make incredible pop hits that topped the airways for months […]

With the Spice Girls announcing their U.K. reunion tour and their spiritual successors Little Mix dropping a buzz track proclaiming that they’re “on that feminist tip,” I’ve been thinking a lot about the history of feminism in mainstream pop music – like, more than usual, which is really saying something for me. In our current […]

Summer’s here and with summer comes one of the most anticipated events of the year and that is the Vans Warped Tour! America’s largest traveling music festival turns 22! Starting on June 24th the tour kicks off in Dallas, TX and will be making it’s way down to our neck of the woods on Sunday, […]

We are kicking off this Throwback Thursday with our team’s coverage for Day For Night Festival. We had a blast covering Houston’s newest art and music festival, and can’t wait to attend again. Until then, enjoy some of the shots that were not featured in our DFN coverage that we covered here and here.   […]

You know those songs that make you cringe so hard you wish you could go back in time and make the wise decision to NOT listen..? That’s how this song made everyone feel when it was uploaded back in 2012. If your face looked like this when you first heard “Hot Problems,” you’re not alone. […]

On this day in 2013, BBC Radio 2 took a poll to find listeners’ favorite albums ever released and Coldplay’s “A Rush of Blood to the Head”  shot right to the top. It beat bands like The Beatles and Pink Floyd, an impressive feat for the British band. If you don’t know who Coldplay is…what […]

I am throwing it back to the 90’s with this track. Nearly twenty-five years ago, Sonic Youth released their first major label single “Kool Thing.” The 1990 single features an amazing recurring guitar riff and some blunt anti-male oppression lyrics. It has always been speculated that the song was inspired by an awkward and disappointing LL Cool J interview conducted […]

When you’re 16, you can get your driver’s license. When you’re 18, you can vote. What about 17? What’s good about that awkward middle age, when you’re too young to be thought of as an adult but too old to get the privileges of being a child? Well, I’ll tell you what’s so great: YOU’RE […]

The above shot was taken by local photographer Sarah Hoffman at last year’s Vans Warped Tour.   By Nick Page You know me, oh you think you do you just don’t seem to see I’ve been waiting all this time to be, something I can’t define So let’s cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet or something, yeah something I’ve just got to get myself over me Summer 2007 — before […]


If there’s a band I can forgive, it’s Weezer. For long-term fans like me, Weezer is seen as one of those bands that made it cool to be nerdy, or at the very least made it not as unbearable as adoloescence can make it seem. However, the later years of the band can be seen […]

It is designed to enlighten the young, please our target demographic, and make the old feel even older. Summer is so ill timed, especially in Texas. The one span of the year where you have the most time for fun […]
