Event Reviews

Dinosaur, Jr.

Time conquers all, even famously virtriolic band implosions. Witness the recent Pixies reunion, and as Steven Garnett did, Dinosaur Jr.

Hayes Carll

Hayes Carll shushed the loudmouths at Smith's Olde Bar, much to David Whited's satisfaction.

Dropkick Murphys

The 30 minutes that Boston's Dropkick Murphys spent onstage were easily the most intense, and awe-inspiring of the Warped Tour's Orlando stop -- enough to convert Jen Cray.

Franz Ferdinand

Scottish band Franz Ferdinand made a special trip across the Atlantic for a live MTV taping at Orlando's Hard Rock Live, and Jen Cray was there.

The Neville Brothers

Irma Thomas and Raúl Midón join the Neville Brothers at National Black Arts Festival show at Woodruff Arts Center highlighting the Generation to Generation theme of this year's festival. David Whited gives us some perspective on the band's ever-changing lineup


What do you get when you mix Rancid's Tim Armstrong and Blink 182's Travis Barker with a roadie-turned-rapper? The Transplants answer Jen Cray's question on this year's Warped Tour.


Angie Aparo

Atlanta singer-songwriter Angie Aparo has been writing and performing long enough to understand the complexities of the music business, and that’s why he is determined to try and reinvent it. Andrew Ellis finds out how he intends to do it.

Agile Web Development with Rails

Hosanna! Ian Koss sings the praises of Rails, and this tome is his undisputed Gospel!

The Cute Manifesto

Run for the hills, folks. The Kochalka bears are coming. Brian Heater sets traps.

Screen Reviews

Broken Flowers

Bill Murray -- who seems to have developed a predilection for serious yet off-beat roles in slowly-paced films -- stars in Jim Jarmusch's latest as a sleuthing ex-Lothario. Brian Heater investigates.

Red Eye

What a team-up of terror — fright-master Wes Craven and Batman Begins' creepy Cillian Murphy. Throw in the lovely Rachel McAdams as a potential victim, and you have a recipe for a good horror story set in an airplane in the middle of the night. However, this summer's next nail-biter is not a slasher-at-20,000 feet flick at all. Our resident frequent flier, Steve Stav, filed this report on Red Eye.

The Dukes of Hazzard

It's a macho-fueled comedic take on the '80s TV drama, The Dukes of Hazzard with revved up motors, sex and car crashes. But you knew that. As does Rob Levy.
