    Nine Inch Nails stun a capacity crowd at Target Center, 11/25/08

    Tuesday night's Nine Inch Nails show at the Target Center was a run-on sentence of the most elegant composition. It was full of multiple clauses and digressions, ornamented by all the pretty verbs that can hang a crowd of thousands agape and breathle...

    Ultramagnetic MC's, "Traveling at the Speed of Thought"

    But let's turn the dial back one year to 1987, and the release of their single "Traveling at the Speed of Thought": after riding off the success of their '86 debut single "Ego Trippin'" and its '87 follow-up "Funky", the Ultramagnetic MC's got to the...

    Chuck Love on fighting parrots, being extra funky

    Live instrumentation is a hallmark of Chuck's performances, and it's a thrill to see him pick up a trumpet, flute, or guitar and add improvisational touches to his impeccable selection of records. In many cases, those records were created by Love hi...

    5ingles - The Songs We Can't Escape

    DOUGLAS ARMOUR "Fall Apart Again" The Social Registry label's normal fare is experimentalist stoner drift, so Armour's MOR moves are an odd fit--especially this one, a should-be synth-pop hit so catchy one can forgive its lyrical banalities. ...

    No Age: Nouns

    NO AGE Nouns Sub Pop Verbs might have been the more fitting title for the second album from this Los Angeles duo, as the disc is nothing if not action-oriented. Composed of drummer/vocalist Dean Spunt and guitarist Randy Randall, No Age kick up...

    Lit Rock - White Rabbits conquer the underground rock scene, one thick novel at a time

    Despite not having much formal education, White Rabbits' bassist Adam Russell has long led a literary lifestyle. He dropped out of high school at 16--years before his band played Late Night with David Letterman and signed to Radiohead's record label...

    Bush grants clemency for gangsta rapper's cocaine bust

    Perhaps the commander in chief sees some of himself in Forte-- like Bush's presidency itself, Forte's innocence is nigh indefensible. Notwithstanding, the case sent the best and brightest stars of the music world to his aid. Carly Simon, for example....

    Kurt Cobain: The Ouija Interview

    His legacy is beyond reproach-- with only his wit and his can-do attitude, he single-handedly inspired such luminaries as Monster Magnet, Silverchair and Seven Mary Three. But what has he done for us lately? The Cobain camp has been suspiciously mum ...

    Chooglin', 'You Sucked the Life Out of Me'

    Let's kick things off with something local, and maybe a bit familiar -- in this case, Minneapolis' own Chooglin'. Picture what punk rock would sound like in 1978 if it was a subset of the era's boogie-rock and proto-metal rather than a repudiation of...

    The Sinks and Les Deux Magots tonight at Memory Lanes

    Tonight's line-up is, as always, much louder than love. The Sinks are an aptly named three-piece, a gruesome and messy take on the grime and grist left over when all the foam and froth of punk rock washed down the drain in that garage workroom. Loud,...
