In the early 2000s, the two of them pressed 100 copies of their second single, “Your Furniture Was Always Dead … … More »
Tesla has been in the news a lot lately, and not always for the best reasons.

The most happening musical celebration in Chicago, Lollapalooza, has announced that this year, those not attending the festival will have four different live channels for all things Lolla at their disposal, thanks to Red Bull TV.
While three of the channels will be reporter-led coverage, the fourth, through the Red Bull Music Youtube page, will offer live streams of the festival sets via virtual reality. The new streaming installment, compliments of C3 Presents, Live Nation, and Google‘s own AR/VR team will “virtually transport fans from anywhere, in real time to the front row at Lollapalooza.”
Coverage is set to begin on the Grant Park festival grounds the day of commencement, Thursday, Aug. 2, at 6 p.m. CST and roll on throughout the weekend until the fest’s conclusion Sunday. The four-day affair boasts an eclectic-as-ever lineup this year, headlined by categorical virtuosos like Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, Bruno Mars, Travis Scott, and The Weeknd, who will all be included in the live streams. The live broadcast will also include sets from top-tier electronic acts like Tycho, Rusko, ODESZA, Illenium, REZZ, and much more.
Streaming will be available here.

Back in March, Jack White released a very Jack White album. While the idea of something being “very Jack White” used to imply an inventive excitement, I feel like it now comes with a more foreboding air, a sort of “What did he do this time?” Boarding House Reach was at its best so-so, … More »

Over the last 11 years under a few different iterations, Lisbon’s NOS Alive has sneakily become one of Europe’s more appealing festivals. It isn’t hard for international fests to be more enticing than the ones stateside these days, where lineups have become increasingly repetitive. NOS Alive, like other European festivals, tends to offer something more … More »
