    For Iraq War vet Tomas Young, Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Morello and Bright Eyes aren't just rock stars -- they're his lifelines. "They keep me going every day to continue in this struggle," says Young, who was paralyzed from the chest down when his Humvee was ambushed in Baghdad in 2004. "They remind me that there are things bigger than myself." Young, whose story is chronicled in the documentary Body of War, hasn't met all of his musical heroes -- just Vedder, who ...  | More »

    Regular attendees know that, like in Vegas, what happens at South By Southwest is supposed to stay at South By Southwest. Nonetheless, we sent Pete Maiden down to Austin, Texas, for this year's festival with filmmaker Alexis Boling and contributing editor Jenny Eliscu and asked him to report back to us with all the grisly details about what he had seen — from local weirdos offering free hugs amid the throngs of concertgoers on Sixth Street to can't miss footage from emer...  | More »

    For those of you who are't lucky enough to be in Austin for this year's South by Southwest festival — or for those unprepared to brave the debauchery — you're in luck. This year, not only did we dispatch badass photographer Noah Kalina to nail all the sights (See his Day One, Day Two, and Day Three galleries), we sent intrepid Pete Maiden down south with cameraman Alexis Boling, a big booze budget and contributing editor Jenny Eliscu, who's charged with making ...  | More »

    The annual South by Southwest music festival begins this week, and we're psyched. Glance once through the (absurdly long) list of artists scheduled to perform and a few names (The Stooges, Donovan, Thurston Moore for example) jump out. But if you're more in the mood for a taste of the next big thing, you're gonna have to a little dig deeper. For guidance, here's our breakdown of the Top 10 can't-miss acts this year. Can't make it to Austin this year? Take a liste...  | More »

  • Tapes N' Tapes Ride the Buzz

    When Minneapolis art rockers Tapes n' Tapes were getting started, they developed an unusual tactic for attracting fans. "Whenever there was a concert that was sold out at [the legendary club] First Avenue, we'd drive by really slow with five or six copies of our CD and just throw them out the car window at the line of people," says singer-guitarist Josh Grier, 26. "I don't know why we thought that was a good idea." But in the four months since they put out their self-released ...  | More »
