Event Reviews

30 Seconds to Mars

30 Seconds to Mars gives Orlando fans what they want... even if it is a little too much ego with a little too little substance to back it up.

Bret Michaels

Shortly before the Poison frontman suffered serious medical issues, Cindy Barrymore got to see the man in action in Chicago.

Fuel

Founding frontman Brent Scallions returns to the road with a re-vamped "Re-Fueled" line-up.

Pop Evil

Displaying obvious old-school influences, Michigan's own Pop Evil proves that the true cock-rock spirit of rock and roll is alive and well. Christopher Long reads the medical chart.

The Dead Weather

It's home run #3 for Jack White as The Dead Weather redefines normal expectations for a live show. Jen Cray witnessed a recent Orlando date and is still buzzing from the high of an unforgettable performance.

Print Reviews

Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life

Author, critic, and self-confessed "drooling fanatic" Steve Almond's latest rock and roll offering has a little something for fans and "fanatics" everywhere. Christopher Long shares the adoration.

Echoes

Glenn Povey brings more facts about Pink Floyd than Carl F Gauze thinks you can shake a brick at.

Screen Reviews

If It Ain't Cheap, It Ain't Punk

Joe Biel's latest is a documentary on the modern-day DIY punk scene fostered by Plan-it X Records.

Greenberg

With Greenberg, film writer-director Noah Baumbach successfully adds another to his patented string of highly intellectual meanderings full of difficult characters expressing their personal pain by violently thrusting it upon others while feigning self-deprecation.

Pandemonium Live

Carl F Gauze appreciates the little things about this concert DVD/CD featuring The Pet Shop Boys.

The Rolling Stones Rare and Unseen

It's doubtful The Rolling Stones are aware this thing exists. James Mann wishes he could say the same. If it's only rock 'n' roll, why can't I hear it?
