  Viking Metal giants Amon Amarth have been crushing heads and leaving a trail of devastation in their wake for many moons, and they'll continue to do so this fall.

Riot Fest 2014 To Feature The Cure, The National, Slayer, Weezer, Rise Against & More

  The past two Riot Fests in Chicago's lovely Humboldt Park have made me swear off that bigger, lamer festival farther east. Now in its tenth year, Riot Fest Chicago has broadened its horizons and started adding less so-called 'punk' bands and spread its wings to welcome everyone.

  Live Review: The Mountain Goats (Solo), The Lonelyhearts
First United Methodist Church, Iowa City, IA - 4.21.14

For the second year in a row, our good friends at SCOPE have taken on the unique challenge of producing a show inside Iowa City’s First United Methodist Church. The church has taken on an unlikely alter-ego as a sonically pristine place that houses some truly unique shows.

10,000 Hours Preview: Sky Ferreira

  The University of Iowa brings an attempt to spur volunteering each spring in the form of the 10,000 Hours show.

The idea has spread out to other... ...[read more]

Live Review: Mission Creek Festival 2014, Day 3

  Live Review: Mission Creek Festival 2014 - Day 3
of Montreal, Dessa, Ark Life, Toki Wright & Big Cats, Dylan Sires & Neighbors

We’re only three days into Mission Creek 2014, and already I have to eat crow. I recently reviewed Dylan Sires & Neighbors two albums from last year, and while I felt the band was talented, I just didn’t connect as strongly to the albums as I had hoped. The group’s opening set on Thursday proved that yet again, I most likely have had my head up my ass. Everything... ...[read more]
