MTV’s 30th annual Video Music Awards will air Sunday night, 8/24 in Southern California, and I’ve had to Google at least half the people being featured at the event. Lucy Hale, apparently of the reality show American Juniors and Pretty Little Liars, and Charli XCX (is that a new Charlie’s Angel?), British singer/songwriter, will host the pre-show, no doubt trying to avoid any media attention that will recall last year’s twerk-atastrophe. The Parents Television Council has already demanded that MTV/Viacom not promote the same type of explicit sexual content that they did in 2013 with Miley Cyrus’ non-stop tongue and booty provocations. Still, with Nicki Minaj and Beyonce on the schedule, performances definitely aren’t expected to be on the conservative side. It seems that shock value is all the 2014 Video Music Awards will have going for them yet again since names like Sia, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande, Avicii, Angel Haze, Sam Smith, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Fifth Harmony are barely old enough to register in my brain let alone in the halls of American music television fame.

Phish Tour 2014

Phish has been on tour nearly all summer, and they’re not stopping anytime soon. The hip Vermont-based jam band will continue rocking into autumn as they play the west coast through November. Phish has been going strong since the 1980s, and their cult-like following is only increasing with each new generation of earthy-crunchy, Trader Joe’s-loving neo-hippies. Though the band has never received any type of mainstream airplay, Phish’s dedicated fan base has ensured continuous success, picking up where the Grateful Dead left off (the post-Garcia attempts of Ratdog, Furthur, and Phil Lesh & Friends try as they might, can’t replace their former frontman’s distinctive stage presence). A fusion of psychedelic rock, jazz, funk, and bluegrass, Phish’s wide-ranging sound draws substantial influence from the Dead with lengthy instrumental solos, groovy lyrics, and loyal fans who consider themselves family, or “phamily,” as they follow the band from show to show and often around the country.

1D and 5 Seconds of Summer Launch North American Tour

Murder? Mayhem? No. Just two of the hottest boy bands in the world and their most painfully vocal fans. August 1st marked the beginning of the North American leg of One Direction’s “Where We Are” tour with opener 5 Seconds of Summer, the Australian pop punk band with an equal knack for causing those high-pitched shrieks only teenage girls can make (Harry Styles allegedly cured a girl of laryngitis earlier this year after not speaking for six months because her need to squeal was that powerful). The tour opened in Toronto for two nights at the Rogers Centre, continued into the U.S. for consecutive shows in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and will move throughout the country, ending early October in Miami.

Lana Del Rey Ultraviolence Review

The title of Lana Del Rey’s third album, Ultraviolence, initially appealed to me because of its reference to A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, one of my favorite novels. Like the book (and Kubrick’s excellent film adaptation), Lana Del Rey’s newest release is dark and poignant with an essence of the surreal. Burgess wrote A Clockwork Orange in a form of Russian-influenced English, which is important for readers because it acts as a sort of barrier, or protective force, as the disturbing events of plot unfold. Similarly, Del Rey’s soothing voice is like a layer of fog, obscuring the somber content within. Topics she frequently explores in her lyrics include depression, drug abuse, and infidelity, but she paints it with such a pop-romantic veneer that you’d think it a love song.

Ultraviolence opens with “Cruel World,” a ballad about heartbreak, but the track ranges from Amy Winehouse grit – “got your bible, got your gun” – to Miley Cyrus vacuity – “you like to party and have fun.” Del Rey refers to this style as “Hollywood sadcore,” at times profound, yet always cinematic, illustrating the tribulations of youth, but perhaps more accurately the loneliness of celebrity culture.
