Live Music Picks: April 26-May 2

Hayley Kiyoko, Indigenous, of Montreal, Post Malone and more.

Live Music Picks: April 19-25

MC Chris, Talia Keys & the Love, Nick Passey, Brian Wilson and more.
Mainstream nerdery has already conquered vast swathes of popular culture, and the world of hip-hop and heavy metal are no exceptions.

Live Music Picks: April 12-18

Judas Priest, The Residents, Clownvis Presley, The Breeders and more.
They're one of heavy metal's biggest and most influential acts, but Judas Priest shows a folk influence in taking their name from a Bob Dylan tune ("The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest") and covering Joan Baez' "Diamonds and Rust" (coincidentally a song about Dylan) on their third album, Sin After Sin (1977).

Live Music Picks: April 5-11

The Darkness, Durand Jones & The Indications, Toby Keith, Petty Theft and more.

Do you like fun?

Live Music Picks: March 1-7

Mr. Pickles Thrash-tacular, Gary Mullen, Blitzen Trapper, Mr. Carmack and more.
There's no way that Bay-Area thrashers Exodus, in their salad days, thought that in 30 years they'd be on tour promoting a cartoon about a diabolical canine serial killer named Mr. Pickles.

Live Music Picks: February 22-28

Busty and the Bass, Margo Price, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Dorothy and more.
So there's Chicago soul, Memphis soul, New Orleans soul, Philly soul ... But why doesn't anyone every talk about Montreal soul?

Live Music Picks: February 15-21

Cake, LP, Radio Moscow, Walk the Moon and more.
One payday evening in 1994, the new-release wall at CD Warehouse in Taylorsville didn't offer a helluva lot.

Live Music Picks: February 8-14

Cashmere Cat, Diet Cig, Dizzy Wright, Caroline’s Spine and more.

Since 1985, musical spiritual leader Jim Heath has been evangelizing pretty much without rest.
