    New research analysis determines punk and metal music actually calms you down

    Source: ConsequenceOfSound.com Researchers disprove their own thesis that “extreme music causes anger” Researchers at the University of Queensland, a public research institution in Brisbane, Australia, recently conducted a study in which they were determined to prove a long held belief: hardcore music leads to hardcore actions. The theory goes that music to which one can headbang is also music to which one can commit acts of violence and rage. To the researchers surprise, however, they discovered the exact opposite was […]

    Review: Lights All Night 2014 Was One For The Books

    As you probably know, Lights All Night is a rapidly growing EDM festival in Dallas, Texas. 2010 began the phenomenon that is LAN with a humbling crowd of 1,700 and three stages. The following year, the festival turned into a two-night venture and the crowd multiplied to approximately 20,000! And with impressive acts like Skrillex, Tiesto, and Bassnectar to name a few, it’s no wonder that LAN continues to grow with immense speed. LAN is an experience like no other. […]

    Interview: Justin Durant of the Dallas Cowboys talks about his injury & Super Bowl Projection

    It was nice to interview our homie from the Dallas Cowboys, Justin Durant, a couple of weeks ago at his Boys & Girls Club charity event at Olivella’s Pizza Kitchen in Downtown Dallas! Tana and Lacie got him to talk about his injury, what he watches on Netflix (lol), his favorite artists, South By Southwest coming up this Spring where they throw me under the bus, and of course his projection for the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs!

    I thought our interview with Caked Up in San Marcos a couple of weeks ago was going to be our last show of the year, but how could we pass up Lights All Night in Dallas, especially with this epic lineup. Last time we attended Lights All Night was in 2012 at the Cotton Bowl where we saw epic sets by Diplo, Flux Pavillion, Nero, Calvin Harris, Bassnectar, Keys N Krates, Zeds Dead, 12th Planet, Crizzly and our homies Ghostland […]

The guys were all very cool, and even told us to steal some of their beers, which we gladly did. I definitely need to learn to hold back my little girlie laugh while behind the camera though. Almost ruined the interview… LOL We also got some really good live footage of Krum Bums, Threes Away, Buried […]

    Summer Interview with Ghostland Observatory

    “Tonight we GLO!” the catch phrase my friends and I have coined every time we are getting ready for a Ghostland Observatory concert. If they play somewhere in Texas, there is a good chance we will be there. SInce their formation in 2003 Ghostland has formed somewhat of a cult following. Their crowd mimic costumes of Aaron Behrens’ once long braids and Thomas Turner’s Texas flag cape. The two band members have sold out shows across the Country and bring […]

    311 & Slightly Stoopid at Whitewater & RyMo Interview

    With more than a decade of making music together, the members of Slightly Stoopid have perfected one of the rarest and most valuable skills a band can develop: the art of the stealth groove, that knack for quietly, almost innocently, sliding into a composition, and utterly lassoing anyone within earshot by mid-song. That’s where the band has come to reside, musically: deep in the pocket, that ever-elusive, funky trench where a band can entrance an audience, hypnotize it and hold […]

    Clown of Slipknot & His New Book… APOCALYPTIC NIGHTMARE JOURNEY

    When I received news of a set interview with Shawn Crahan from Slipknot, my jaw dropped. When their self-titled debut album dropped in 1999, the songs “Wait and Bleed”, “(Sic),” “Surfacing,” and “Spit It Out” did not stop playing in my home. Seeing Slipknot live is an incredible experience. These guys have so much energy when they go on stage. They killed it when I had the privilege of checking them out during their “Tattoo The Earth Tour 2000” in […]

    Rebelution “Peace of Mind Tour 2012”

    Santa Barbara natives Rebelution made their mark at Stubbs BBQ on February 10th, yet again. With a sold out crowd this could have possibly turned into a two night show. The release of their latest album “Peace of Mind” generates a reggae rock fusion sound. Lead singer Eric Rachmany’s vocals carry on a smooth sound that keeps every song catchy. As bassist Marley Williams danced around and strummed that first chord, the stage quickly filled up with smoke. Not only […]

  • Making a Sublime Comeback

    Making a Sublime Comeback

    I remember my friend popping the cassette tape in his car one day. As the heavy bass and drum started the album off, I was looking at this tripped-out sun on the album cover with the word SUBLIME on top and 40oz to Freedom on the bottom. I thought it was so sick. As the record (or tape) played on, it was tough to not bob your head to the jams. I instantly became a fan of Sublime and loved […]

We meet Milano in the parking lot of Music Lab in Austin and this Texas heat is hot as fuck. “Who is this interview for?” asks the front man of the notorious thrash metal bands Method of Destruction (M.O.D.) and Storm Troopers of Death (S.O.D.) as he makes a beeline for the recording studio. Surely he’s just reminding himself, we rationalize, because […]

    The ADICTS – A Quick Conversation with Monkey Before Europe

    O my little brothers. After 30 years and counting, The Adicts are still glazing devotchkas and malchicks with their rainbows and ultra violence. Hailing from Ipswich, Suffolk, England, this UK 80’s punk band was not always called “The Adicts.” Beginning life in late 1975 as “Afterbirth & The Pinz” and later going through different names such as “Fun Adicts” and “ADX,” the Adicts finally stuck. The bands “Droog” outfits and Singer Monkey’s glamorous costumes are an inspiration of Anthony Burgess’ […]

    Blag Dahlia Talks 2011 with THE DWARVES

    The Dwarves are a classic punk band from the early 80s that formed in the underground scum-punk scene in Chicago, but are now based out of San Francisco. Their sound in the beginning was hardcore metal, with not so great sound production. They weren’t known for their sound though. They were known for their hectic shows that would normally last under 15 minutes, because they would get kicked out of their own show by the venue or by cops for […]

    Tokyo Police Club – From a Simple Fan to an End of a Spark

    Tokyo Police Club is an indie rock band out of Newmarket, Ontario. Their sound has encapsulated many to proactively find out who these guys are, including myself. They aren’t my ideal genre, but I’m not a fan of genres’, I’m a fan of good music; and their music rocks. I first heard their songs through Facebook posts and through friends who were big fans of them as well. Not much gets me into indie rock, but these guys broke the […]
