Saul Williams, Dragons of Zynth @ Slim's, 3/21/08

Fucking awesome. The end. Kidding. I will remain surprised as to how many people are unfamiliar with Saul Williams. And some of those who are, like me, found out about him through his opening sets for NIN, and his ongoing musical relationship with Trent Reznor. Unfortunately, many of those people write him off because they […]

Goth Singles

Haha. Apparently the internets thinks I’m goth, because I just got a GothScene.com banner ad. Had to click it, just had to. They claim to be the #1 alternative community on the net. But the beauty of it is in the fine print: Dedicated to bringing gothic singles together in a totally free atmosphere. Email […]

Upcoming Groupie Doc?

Seems Like Miss Pamela has a documentary in the works full of titillating groupie stories: Hello dolls! I am looking for former groupies or modern girls still hanging with bands for an upcoming doc based on my last book, “Let’s Spend the Night Together.” The bands have to be very well known, sorry!

Where have all the posters gone?

Ummm…hellloooo?!?!?!? Where’s my poster? I’m paying more for tickets, dammit. Imagine my surprise when, a few weeks into living here, I go to The Fillmore, and on the way out they give me a poster. Then I remember all of this great poster art that I have seen over the years coming from The Fillmore, […]

Reznor vs. Radiohead, the Obama vs. Clinton of the music world

Digital releases. Video contests. General shunning of record in record industry traditionalism. It’s a head to head race of creativity and reinvention, resulting in a media- and fan- frenzy. Who will win? All of us. Because no matter who copied who and what comes next, we will all benefit. These two bands are breaking into […]

Serj Tankian @ The Warfield, 3/8/08

In a rare occasion of perfect timing for me, I take my spot at The Warfield just as Serj Tankian takes the stage. I am not as familiar with Tankian as I am with most artists I go to see. But there are three things I do know about him which compelled me to attend: […]
