Jack White was the highlight performance of Coachella, but Alabama Shakes, Royal Blood, Vance Joy, and Circa Survive gave him a run for his money. Hipsters rejoiced in the quirky side attractions like silent discos and weird snacks, and now everyone is yearning for summer. Forget spring. Everything is still dead. Then again it always is in southern California (we're praying that the rain gods move Connecticut's precipitation yo... [Read more]
Van Halen’s first televised performance ever with singer David Lee Roth aired last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live in support of their upcoming tour, and despite the plethora of high kicks Roth is overly fond of, the front man still looks a bit rusty as he needed 14 stitches after only the first take. Manically twirling his mic stand during "Panama," Roth proceeded to hit himself square in the nose, and Nelly-style, had to perform with a large bandage on his face for the rest of the taping.

It's mid-March, and the NCAA madness has begun. Even though you're probably getting excited to root on your alma mater, as John Oliver notes, the games are so full of product placement and branding that the only thing left to be sponsored are the sponsorships themselves.
Despite college coaches getting paid millions while the hard-working athletes are getting paid nothing, the games are undeniably exciting, especially if you bet money on them. For more upcoming events to get the spring season r... [Read more]
Sleepy? Me too. Daylight Savings was this weekend, setting us all an hour forward in time, but an hour back mentally, and as John Oliver notes, the struggle to change the clock on your microwave is real.

As soon as the weather hits “sunny and 75”, Northeastern country music fans are itching to kick off the summer with Luke Bryan tickets, a Miranda Lambert concert, or Jason Aldean tour tickets.

It’s a sip of wine, it’s summertime,” in honor of Kenny Chesney. Most of the not-originally-from-the-South redneck wannabes will... [Read more]
Lady Gaga gave Julie Andrews a run for her money last night at the Oscars when she performed a montage of songs from The Sound of Music and surprisingly nailed it.
