Event Reviews

Hole

Courtney Love has resurrected Hole, in a way, and set out on a tour that has quickly become the must-see beautiful disaster of the summer. Jen Cray caught the uneven Orlando show.

Lords of Acid

Lords of Acid allows the return to Orlando's classic '90s rave club, and all we can muster is two lousy glow sticks?

Rooney

Despite a few technical malfunctions, So-Cal pop/rock combo Rooney wowed Orlando fans with a powerful live set, which is more than Chris Long can say about the warm up bands.

Scorpions

Throngs of faithful old-school arena rockers squeezed into their faded vintage Judas Priest and Iron Maiden T's and partied once again like it was 1989 at the Tampa stop of the Scorpions "farewell" tour. Chris Long was, of course, among them.

The Smashing Pumpkins

Billy Corgan is The Smashing Pumpkins and, as a recent Orlando show proved to Jen Cray, his cast of brand new bandmates brings a whole new fist of fury to the band's sound and performance.

Warped Tour 2010

The lineup isn't as important as the experience when it comes to the Van's Warped Tour. Jen Cray smeared on some sunblock and took in the annual summertime tradition when the traveling circus hit Orlando.

Interviews

Darryl Worley

Country music star Darryl Worley tries not to tarnish his bad reputation in an interview with Ink 19. Turns out there are some things about the singer/songwriter that might surprise you.

Frontier Ruckus

Impressionistic Michigan documentarians Frontier Ruckus make time in their infinite tour schedule to help Aaron Shaul better understand the opaque beauty of their newest album Deadmalls & Nightfalls.

Pumice

Pumice's Stefan Neville talks with Aaron Shaul about his unique fusion of catchy pop and guttural noise, the pains of self-releasing music, and his exponentially growing discography.

The Walker Brothers: No Regrets

Acolytes David Bowie and Jarvis Cocker may have a vested interest in maintaining the Walker mythos, but No Regrets is under no such obligation.

Screen Reviews

Final 24

Roger Pike's TV documentary investigates the deaths of famous celebrities, including Nicole Brown Simpson, Janis Joplin, Keith Moon, and Gianni Versace, among others. Carl F Gauze can't stop staring.

GOLD: Before Woodstock. Beyond Reality.

Hippies! Free love! Boobs! MC5! So why is this "lost classic" such a bummer, man?

Inbred Redneck Vampires

Vampires invade a small town, but Carl F Gauze finds the rednecks to be much more interesting in this low budget, highly entertaining B movie.

Words of Advice: William S. Burroughs On The Road

William S. Burroughs, rockstar, comes face-to-face with the underground youth culture that he helped to create. Matthew Moyer fills the Ink 19 crowd in on his extended victory lap, viewed through cinematic eyes.
