  • Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band at the Magic Bag on Friday

  • The testament to a great band is their ability to impact an audience. Kids are a great barometer for that. Kids are honest--if they hate something you find out pretty quickly. If they love it, their adoration is endless. Well, since my son was a wee babe the only sound that's comforted him is Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band. They are in my top 10 for best live bands. I really dig 'em. But for [...]
  • My Pal Val announces slew of Spring dates

  • Thank God for false promises! After initially planning a quiet spring, My Pal Val has announced six shows for the rest of March through April. I'm pretty sure the secret is out on these guys, but those of you in or out of the know will want to get out and check the band in action. They're truly a special experience--amazing songs backed with amazing musicianship. Here are the dates: March 20th [...]

  • Live video: The Solar System-Surveillance Cam

  • The Solar System wrapped up their 3rd show as a band and several of the songs were put to video for posterity's sake. It's kind of dark and it's only one angle but the real thing to check out is the aural not the visual. The band drifts between indie-rock and psychedelic...a little less Syd Barrett than Heroes & Villians was, but all the pieces are there. They've got some dynamic tunes...shit'[...]

  • Stream the new My Bloody Valentine album on YouTube

  • Dear Penthouse Forum, I never thought it would happen to me. It seemed like the whole thing happened so fast, but My Bloody Valentine--who have been mostly silent since 1991--are getting a tour together and have a new album, m b v. The whole thing is pretty sweet. Songs like 'Only Tomorrow' waiver in the distorted drone you'd expect from the band. 'New You'--a song the band debuted at a show la[...]
