    Jack Johnson was the hero of Tennessee's Bonnaroo festival this weekend, when he swooped in and replaced canceled Saturday headliners Mumford & Sons with just two days' notice, and even performed an original song he wrote about the whole surreal experience just hours before he took the stage.  Mumford & Sons were sadly forced to bow out of their Bonnaroo appearance (the first headliner cancellation in the festival's 12-year-history) after M&S bassist Ted Dwane...  | More »

    Let's face it: We can't all dance like Beyonce, or Usher, or even Britney Spears at her worst. Haven't most of us at some point in our lives tried standing in front of the mirror, scrutinizing our poorly executed excuse for *NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye" dance? (Okay, not most, but some). But lo, there is a place where fancy choreographed dance moves are few and far between -- and when they appear, boy do they shimmer with attainability!

It was in 1978 that Rockford, Illinois's finest made rock 'n' roll history with Cheap Trick at Budokan, arguably (or inarguably, in this writer's not-so-humble opinion) the greatest live album of all time. The disc was initially intended to be a Japanese-only release, but once Yanks heard the import, they were understandably blown away by the ball-busting, heart-racing, rio...  | More »

    Give a man a fish and he'll eat for like, five minutes. Give a man some art supplies and a false sense of entitlement and he'll be drinking for free all Coachella long.   If you're one of the many people who didn't rush to drain a bank account for Coachella tickets this year, you're in luck. The next best thing (or for many reasons, even better) is the plethora of free, celeb-packed satellite parties happening around the California desert. Sadly, not everyon...  | More »
