    Sunday Afternoon Mixtape #5

    So I totally failed at the My Bloody Valentine tracks because I completely forgot to get the mp3 recorder from the car before I left for the show – sorry. Hey did that show piss off anyone else? I was so irritated by the fact […]

    The Sisters of Mercy Schedule Tour Dates

    Everyone's favorite sisters have scheduled 6 live shows in November - the first since 2006, I think. Unfortunately all shows will be at the House of Blues, but still - The Sisters of Mercy?! Are you kidding?!?! In the words of my roommate, "Do you think this means Andrew will wear Mickey Mouse ears?! Oh, lordy lordy lordy... I think this is one of those signs the world is ending..

    APHEX TWIN and GOLDFRAPP added to Coachella 2008 Lineup!

    Just announced on Tuesday, March 11th: Aphex Twin and Goldfrapp have been added to this year's already stellar Coachella lineup!
