Derby girls kick ass. That's a given. But before they commence to kicking ass they all have music that gets them pumped to pommel. We caught up with a few skaters from the Slaughterhouse Derby Girls roller derby league and they told us which tunes give them fired up. See also: - Here's what the De ... More >>
It was after 10 p.m. that a woman wearing a blue dress and a donkey mask came up to us and put her snout, through which her eyes were visible, up against our face -- so we were peering at each other through a tunnel of plastic hot with her breath. "Our ovaries are safe for four more fuckin' years!" ... More >>
This time last year, the most contagious pop trend was working with Pitbull, and what a bandwagon trend that was. As much as we're glad the Pitbull days are over, we're not too hot for this new thing, either. And this new thing, somewhat strangely, is serving as a judge for a televised singing compe ... More >>
As anyone and their mother could have (and, ahem, did) predicted, it was Adele's show at last night's 54th Grammy Awards. The singer, who absolutely swept the awards, took home six Grammys -- meaning she won in every category in which she was nominated, including the big three: Song of the Year, Rec ... More >>
For whatever reason, you'll notice that this Saturday night, aside from the second night of STS9's two-night stand at the Fillmore, there aren't too many must-see shows. This is mere speculation on our part, but we're guessing that might have something to do with a certain sporting event taking plac ... More >>
Grammy nominations for 2012 were announced last night during the Grammys Nomination Concert -- which was, oddly, just that: a concert, not a nominations show. Nominations in four major categories were announced, plus performances by major players in mainstream music like Lady Gaga, who performed twi ... More >>
When did Adam Levine become such a pop god? Really? Throw the Maroon 5 singer's vocal on any track, and watch it hit the top ten right now. Case in point: "Stereo Hearts." It isn't the strongest Gym Class Heroes track (that distinction belongs to "Peace Sign/Index Down" with Busta Rhymes), and yet " ... More >>
Dev: like a pregnant G6.Her name is Dev. She may roll like a G6, but her sex-drive shtick is totally hot. And the sea of hands touching her naked body doesn't hurt either. Unlike other dance-pop starlets of today, Dev comes out of left field with a sound that's more Euro club than Euro trash -- thin ... More >>
Here's what's good in the Mile High City this week: On the concert front, we've received word that Kings of Leon is slated for a two-night stand at Red Rocks with Band of Horses, Tony Bennett is due at Ellie Caulkins and Symphony on the Rocks will feature Sarah McLachlan, among others. Meanwhile, ... More >>
Zack de la Rocha's never been prim about his political leanings. In fact, that's always been the whole point: Since Rage Against the Machine was named, well, Rage Against the Machine, up to the time De la Rocha left the band to devote more time to pursuing social justice in the Chiapas in Mex ...

Here's the newest track off the upcoming Bruno Mars EP It's Better If You Don't Understand, which comes out May 11. This song started cropping up on YouTube last night. It's not as good as "Nothin' On You" or the first single off the EP, which you can hear below. But it is likely to be the one t ... More >>
