Everyone's announcing the line-ups for the plethora of summer festivals soon to be coming your way. So here's the line-up for the one festival that's not absolutely guaranteed to be Death Valley hot: Sasquatch! in the lovely green state of Washington.

Let's all hop in the wayback machine to 2002, when a little movie called Spider-Man made us believe that Tobey Maguire was an action hero and that Kirsten Dunst was an attractive redhead. Let us also shake our collective fists at that movie, for subjecting us to that damn song "Hero" all summer. Ugh, Nickelback. All Music Guide says it so well: "it's a disappointment that the soundtrack to Spider-Man is so calculated, pitched directly at the nü-metal/rap-rock/post-grunge crowd with...

Fresh off a week’s worth of showcases in Austin for the annual South by Southwest music conference, The Fratellis showed up at the Troubadour locked, loaded and ready for action. Having caught half of one of their electric sets and a full acoustic set in Austin I already had a good idea what was on the agenda for the evening, and that would be a tight set of the ol’ rock ‘n’ roll. They would not disappoint. They tore into...

For those of you unaware, Regina Spektor is like Fiona Apple, but funny and without the pretension. Also, the venues she plays are much smaller, and I’d be willing to bet that the tickets are cheaper. Which is good news for you, dear reader, since she’s headed out on tour this summer, and has slotted in stops on Good Morning America and Letterman for those of you who live in Podunk towns (apparently, New York qualifies as a Podunk town,...

Ahhh, spring. ‘Tis the season of foreign band names… …the latest being the electro-Kraut sensations best known as Fujiya & Miyagi. The Brighton-based trio played a show at Spaceland earlier this month to only Silverlake brethren, but to what seemed like a Eurotrash L.A. invasion, propagating a buzz only ousted by an announcement that they’d be opening for Peter Bjorn and John in their international spring tour. While they dress like they’d be better suited in a Puma or Ben...
