Considering we didn’t go to bed till 6a.m. the night before, we got off to a very late start on Day Three of our Outside Lands experience. I woke up at 11:30a.m. and was super bummed because I was going to miss Big Light. Be sure to check out these jammin’ indie rockers, as they […]

Well check this lame shit out, a LED light-up-Photon whatevs skateboard! Might’ve been cool if Liberace cruised it, but other than […]

“Break Up” by Scarlett Johansson & Pete Yorn – Album Review

Quick as a “one pump chump,” Scarlett Johansson & Pete Yorn’s new album “Break Up” is short and sweet. With nine tracks of fun, heartfelt duets, Yorn’s enchanting vocals are the definite player in this album while Johansson cruises along the sidelines just waiting to get called in for some action.

Outside Lands Festival 2009 Day 1

“I’m so hot my eyeballs are fuckin’ sweating!” Those were my exact thoughts as we rolled up to the 2009 Outside Lands music festival. I gotta admit, the LA heat and blue skies must of followed me to San Francisco cause it was record breaking heat at about 100 degrees. LA’s West Indian Girl hit […]
