The Dwarves: Live at Le Poisson Rouge

The Dwarves tore up New York’s fancy Le Poisson Rouge a few months back, when they performed with The Queers in front of a packed room of elderly punk rockers. It’s been refreshing to see Blag Dahlia and his new band of misfits performing full sets, instead of the 10 minute frantic affairs that they have become notorious for. In case you missed the show, here’s “Let’s Get High and Fuck Some Sluts,”...

Zoli Teglas: A Pennywise Interview

When word dropped a few months back that Ignite front man Zoli Teglas would be picking the vocal reigns for Pennywise I got a excited. I was weened on both Pennywise and Ignite during my formative years (1994-98) and to call them two of my favorite bands is a bit of an understatement. While it is sad to see Jim Lindberg leave Pennywise, Zoli is hands down the best real singer in punk rock today. I don’t think anyone can match...

AFI & Gallows at Starland Ballroom

Words by guest blogger Anthony Ambrose of  inTuneMusic View full photolog on Flickr Since forming nearly twenty years ago, AFI has seen a wide variety of lineup, label, and stylistic changes.

In 2009, AFI finds themselves long removed from their days of adolescent rebellion with more in common with Morrissey...

Imelda May at Pianos

Imelda May Pianos September 15, 2009 Click here for full Photolog from the show It’s hard to ignore the dearth of rockabilly bands hitting the Big Apple as part of their tour itinerary. So, when I get an invite to check out an up and coming rockabilly diva at an NYC show, I do not turn it down. In the case of Imelda May, the show lived up to the hype. May is a country crooner straight out of the extremely not western-style country of...

Green Day at Madison Square Garden

Green Day/Kaiser Chiefs Madison Square Garden July 27, 2009 Click to view more photos from show Thousands of fans packed NYC’s biggest venue for two evenings of stellar punk rock courtesy of a band heralded as this generation’s U2, and judging by the audience reaction at MSG, the band is more than worthy of the moniker. The band is currently on tour supporting their latest release “21st Century Breakdown,” so...

The Damned: Live at the Fillmore

The Damned, The BelRays, Electric Frankenstein Fillmore at Irving Plaza May 14, 2009 It’s sad to say, but the number of living legends from the early part of  punk history is dwindling rather quickly. With the death of three quarters of The Ramones, Joe Strummer, Arthur “Killer” Kane, and (most recently) Lux Interior, the need to see bands that are still alive (and killing it on stage) is a must. Luckily, the dark...
