Malcolm Young, guitar rock legend and co-founder of AC/DC, has passed away after a late life battle with dementia.

Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.

Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC.

With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.

As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man.

He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted.

He took great pride in all that he endeavored.

His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.

As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special.

He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.

Malcolm, job well done.

Here are some of the tributes that have been posted…

Tycho has announced a New Year’s Eve run at the Fillmore in San Francisco to ring in the 2018 calendar year with an amazing Anthology theme that will run through his catalog so far.

For the first night, he’ll play songs off the first two full lengths he put out, with New Year’s Eve set for the last two albums plus a full DJ set from the man himself to close out the night. Check out the complete details below.

I’m excited to announce that we’ll be playing two special shows right here at home in San Francisco on December 30th and 31st at one of my favorite venues in the world, The Fillmore. We kicked off the Awake tours with our first show at The Fillmore so it only seemed right to end the Epoch era in the same place, and on New Year’s Eve.

Here’s how the two nights will be structured:

December 30: The original 3-piece touring band (Zac Brown, Rory O’Connor and myself) will play songs from Past is Prologue and Dive with our good friend and collaborator (and cousin to Zac) Dusty Brown opening up the show.

December 31: The current 4-piece touring band (Rory O’Connor, Zac Brown, Billy Kim and myself) will play songs from Awake and Epoch with Rory opening the show as Nitemoves. I’ll be closing out the night with a DJ set, my first proper set in the city since February 2016.

This sounds amazing. I’d love to get a chance to see full run-throughs of all of the music he’s put out so far, so this sounds like a pretty solid way to see at least most of it live once.

In case you missed it, you can stream Tycho’s previous Burning Man DJ sets here or check out his DJ set from this year’s Coachella.

moe. has announced their return to the stage officially as a band with Rob Derhak following his year off in 2017 for cancer treatment. The band will set up for two nights at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on February 2-3, 2018 with Kung Fu joining the band as opener the first night.

Moe. Announces Return With Weekend At Capitol Theatre in February 2018
Moe. is coming back! Almost as suddenly as their hiatus began, the unexpected break will officially come to an end as the band marks their heralded return to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY for 2 nights on February 2nd & 3rd, 2018.

The band’s bassist/vocalist, Rob Derhak, who’d been diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Cancer earlier this year, has made tremendous strides in his recovery following treatment. Moe. was forced to cancel the majority of their Summer Tour in 2017, as well as their pending Fall dates while Rob underwent treatment. The outpouring of love & support from the fans has been equaled only by the anticipation for the band’s return.

Rob commented, “It’s been a tough few months, and I couldn’t have done it without the overwhelming support of my family, and my And although it’s still not clear what the future brings, the positivity and love that I’m feeling for moe.’s and my next chapter is beyond exciting. I feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas, and our energy as a band, is like nothing I’ve experienced before. Thank you all for the well wishes, prayers, and healing vibes.”

Tickets go on sale this week. A limited number of Pre-sale tickets will be available Wednesday, November 15th, at 10:00am EST. General on sale begins Friday November 17th, at 10:00am. Kung Fu will support on Friday February 2nd only. February 3rd is an “evening with” moe. Both nights will feature 2 full sets from the band.

Stoked for the good news here! The moe. family is a good bunch and it was really sad to see them weather through that storm.

Tedeschi Trucks Band is in the middle of a West Coast tour and they rolled through San Diego this past Thursday night, which just so happened to be Susan Tedeschi‘s birthday. The band delivered a stunning performance while maintaining a patented looseness that I’ve come to associate with the way Derek Trucks leads a band, and the crowd even gave Susan a little “Happy Birthday” rendition between a few of the songs mid-set.

Paul Citone brought back this amazing gallery from the concert and shared them with us below. Scroll through the full gallery and don’t forget to catch Tedeschi Trucks Band whenever you can, but especially now more than ever. Musicianship like this needs to be heard live to be fully consumed into your soul, and this band delivered a soulful salvation for me and friends on a cool, crisp San Diego fall night… —Editor

Those dance-meets-trap pioneers A-Trak & Baauer have just dropped some two new songs ahead of their B2B tour hitting North America throughout November.

The new tracks “Fern Gully” and “Dumbo Drop” both feel like they have elements I know and love about these two, and I wonder where each track started first. Seems like one leans a little heavy on one side of the trap influence for sure, but they’re both pretty straight ahead 4-on-the-floor beats so I think they’re pushing for full danceability on these.

Their special B2B Fall tour is hitting select cities across the US over the next few weeks, including Oaktopia Music & Arts Festival in Dallas, Texas and Goldrush Music Festival in Chandler, Arizona. All tickets are available now at
