Founded in the Harajuku district of Tokyo in 1987, Guitar Wolf puts on one of the most wild shows around. Inspired in part by guitarist Seiji's encounter with "Rumble," the Link Wray classic, the band crafted a sound that combines bits of old time rock and roll with punk, garage rock and noise. See ...

On a Remote Frequency Outpost in Space
CAT POWER @ THE OGDEN THEATRE | 01/24/13 Cat Power -- better known as Chan Marshall and a Revolving Cast of Other Folks -- played a bizarrely unbalanced show last night at the Ogden.

It's less than a week now until Christmas. Did you get all your shopping done yet? Ah, don't beat yourself up. Neither have we. If you're like us, you've probably got some people on our list who are just impossible to buy for, yes? If so, here's an idea, one that won't require you to brave the masse ... More >>
It's not Christmas yet, but you'd certainly be excused for thinking otherwise, what with the radio already playing round-the-clock holiday tunes and the new shows we've been gifted with. Looks like somebody's been on their best behavior (god knows, it wasn't us). Whatever the case, we're now being r ... More >>
Even though the band has been around for five years, Metz just released its self-titled debut full-length on Sub Pop this year. Even prior to that, the Toronto-based trio only released a few seven-inches. Mostly these guys have spent their time focusing on developing as a group by touring and playin ... More >>
As reported yesterday, the Disco Biscuits are playing three shows in Colorado after the first of the year at the Boulder Theater, Ogden Theatre and 1STBANK Center. And while that's arguably the biggest concert announcement of the week, it's not the only one. After cancelling its co-headlining date w ... More >>

As people who think about, talk about, write about, listen to and make music, it shouldn't be surprising to find that the most common (and mutually favorite) topic of conversation among us is the same: "What are you listening to right now?" Stick a quarter in us, and, boy, wouldn't you know it, off ... More >>

It's officially fall now, according to the calendar -- and, well, the thermometer -- but that doesn't mean things have cooled down here in the Mile High City. While most of the shows have moved indoors, there's still plenty to choose from, including Rise Against at the Fillmore tonight and tomorrow ... More >>
TV ON THE RADIO @ SNOWBALL MUSIC FESTIVAL | 3.03.12 The early part of TV on the Radio's set seemed unbalanced. The band's signature quiet moments -- interludes of whistling or whines of guitar feedback -- were often interrupted by sound bleeding over from two nearby stages, the Heat Hut and the Bal ...

Coming from roughly the same Montreal scene that produced bands like the Dears, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Stars, the Besnard Lakes recorded with members of those bands on its Polaris Prize-nominated 2007 album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse, at singer/guitarist Jace Lasek's Bre ...

If you haven't seen the 1959 film On The Beach, you might want to tune out now before we spoil anything. It's a post-apocalyptic emotion-drain that chronicles the last days of humanity in a painstakingly slow manner -- which is to say it's a bit slow in the hips but fast in the brain. Anyw ... More >>
There are rumors floating around that the Tom Hanks owned Playtone production company may be discussing the possibilities of turning Green Day's American Idiot (the musical) into a movie. This is, without a doubt, the worst possible news we could feasibly imagine. We're picturing a kind of Garden ... More >>
Pretty Lights. Photo by Aaron Thackeray As people who think about, talk about, listen to and make music, the most common question we encounter is, "What are you listening to right now?" So whether you're looking for recommendations, trying to get a feel for our individual sensibilities, o ... More >>
Sigur Ros really Takk it on when it comes to packagingIn the age of the digital download CD and LP packaging has been forced to step up its game in order to attract sales.
