Katy Perry Covers “N*ggas In Paris” @ BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge

Categories: Reviews

I love the Internet and everything it brings with it. Without the World Wide Web, where would we uncover this video of Katy Perry covering Jay-Z/Kayne West's "N*ggas In Paris"? We wouldn't have. In all seriousness though, this is great for 2 reasons: The NY Yankee hat is one, and the second being that Katy Perry may have a better version of this song out now then the one that you'll find as Track 3 on "Watch The Throne". Check it out: Special shout ... Read More

Katy Perry Goes to Dinah

Categories: Reviews

 .  Earlier this month at Dinah Shore in Palm SKaty Perry Goes to Dinah 2009 Photos/Review by Itookurphotoprings, CA Katy Perry made a special appearance at the Club Skirts White Diamonds party (which I must say was a great move on Club Skirts' end because I don't think any other Dinah Shore White Party was quite like this one). I have to say, it was pretty awesome. It was nothing like what I expected, having seen some of her live performances on TV. I assumed ... Read More

Mike Patton Unleashes His Inner Yeezy Below, I've placed a video you really have to see to believe. Over the past year, one of the most popular songs (that's even been covered by the likes of Ms. Katy Perry) is Jay-Z and Kanye West's track "N*ggas In Paris" from the 2011 collaborative album Watch The Throne. And just when you thought the popularity of the song was finally wearing off, alt-metal weirdos Faith No More went ahead and threw in their own cover of ... Read More

Categories: Reviews

Marilyn Manson Teams with Rammstein For The Beautiful People at Echo 2012 With all due respect to Jeordie White (aka Twiggy) Marilyn Manson has finally found a backing band that does not suck. As part of the 2012 Echo Awards, Manson performed his 90’s classic The Beautiful People with native German sons Rammstein. What’s interesting about the footage (which you can watch below) is that most of the camera angles are either focused on members of Rammstein or are shots from far away. ... Read More

Matt Nathanson makes All Night Noise at The Pageant – 10/18/2011

Categories: Reviews

Words by jenkins Videos by jenkins (except as noted) There aren't very many artists whose catalogues I know by heart - and I don't just mean "heard all of the songs and have all of the CDs", but "know every word and memorized every breakdown and transition".  For me, Matt Nathanson is one of of those artists.  Even though he toured extensively on his 2007 release Some Mad Hope, I somehow managed to miss seeing Matt headline a show since his dual-headliner with Carbon ...

WakaRooJamCamp: A Summer Music Festival Preview

Words and Photos by Bradley Darby It is an interesting time in the music world right now. Concert ticket sales are way down, yet prices seem to be up. Massive tours have been forced to cut dates due to slow ticket sales. With the music industry in disarray and the future leaning towards digital music (and quite possibly the return of the vinyl!!) the multi-day music festival made famous by Woodstock has made a strong return. There is something unique about being able to ... Read More

I tried an experiment tonight.  What would happen if I rocked my Lakers/Lizards t-shirt and $4.99 Lakers cap at a Phish ... Read More

If planned correctly, you can get a nice sample of everything you love, try something new, and hopefully avoid items that you simply don't agree ... Read More

These are some of the best local bands around right now. I couldn’t wait for it ... Read More
