     |  Steve Appleford

    The message scrawled on the cartoon banner behind New Found Glory was simple: "Pop Punks Not Dead," a reworking of an old, defiant punk rock battle cry. On Sunday in Ventura, California, dozens of bands on the 18th annual Vans Warped Tour worked hard to make it true for a fresh generation of  fans. It was the sixth stop on the road for the 2012 edition of Warped, which collected pop-punk with hardcore, metalcore, hip-hop and other sounds on the blacktop of the Ventura County Fairgrounds...  | More »

  • Beck, Fiona Apple Deliver Old Hits at Governor's Ball

     |  Matthew Perpetua

    If Beck were not a solo artist, his recent shows, including his Sunday night headlining set at Governor's Ball in New York, might be considered something of a reunion tour. He's back with the same core group of musicians he played with back in the prime of his career – Odelay on through Sea Change – and his set lists have been packed with oldies, with just over half of Odelay turning up in nearly every gig. It's a very good time, especially if you're coming to ...  | More »

  • Metallica Wrap Orion Festival With Heavy-Duty Black Album Set

    The crowds were a little redder and a little more hoarse on Sunday at Orion Fest in Atlantic City, with a fair amount smelling as if they’d spent the night under the boardwalk. What they lacked in hygiene and sunblock, they made up in sheer numbers. Photos: The Hottest Live Photos of 2012 The night’s primary draw was a full performance of Metallica’s 1991 "Black Album," ostensibly to celebrate its 20th anniversary. At 15.7 million copies sold, Metallica holds the number on...  | More »

    The Rhinestone Cowboy has left the building. Last night at the Hollywood Bowl Glen Campbell played what was billed as his final concert in Los Angeles, where the country-music legend has made his home for more than 50 years. The show was a stop on the so-called Goodbye Tour that Campbell launched in 2011 after revealing he'd been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Photos: The Hottest Live Photos of 2012 Unlike most of his recent gigs, Sunday's opened with a lengthy tribute ...  | More »

  • Metallica Bring Thrash and Power to Opening Day at Orion

     |  Chris Steffen

    The Arctic Monkeys deserve a medal for taking the pre-Metallica bullet on the first day of the Orion Music + More festival. While their set time immediately before the headlining hosts’ may have looked good on paper, what it really meant was that they lost a few hundred audience members at the end of every song as the crowds gathered around the main stage in anticipation of Metallica’s Ride the Lightning set. By the end of the Arctic Monkeys’ performance, it would not have b...  | More »

  • Rain and Mud Dominate Isle of Wight Festival

     |  Rolling Stone

    Heavy rain and mud has complicated plans for thousands of Isle of Wight festival-goers this weekend, reports the BBC. Attendees of the U.K. festival ran into rough conditions, leaving some waiting for 10 hours to access the festival's parking lots. The issues started early Thursday, when the main parking lot became flooded. Extra field space was cleared for parking along with metal track installations, but many vehicles had to be towed. "The two things I'm really annoyed about is ...  | More »

  • Black Keys Stage 'Secret' Nashville Gig for Video Shoot

    June 21, 2012 10:05 AM ET
     |  Adam Gold

    The Black Keys might be bona fide arena rockers, but last night in Nashville the band kicked out the jams for a crowd of less than a hundred fans and friends, and a camera crew. The not-so-secret club show, held at Music City's seedy Springwater Supper Club, was a video shoot for the El Camino cut "Little Black Submarines," for which the band tapped lauded photographer/filmmaker Danny Clinch to direct. Early yesterday morning, the Tennessee-by-way-of-Akron duo tweeted that the first 40 ...  | More »
