Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ - Enter the Slasher House

20 April 2014

Austin - Though the band name and cover art might suggest some sort of black metal nightmare, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ “Enter the Slasher House” is more like a whimsical fun house.  If anything, this album was created from the trappings of a bad acid trip, though...

Published in Live Reviews
Wednesday, 20 November 2013 13:25
Los Angeles - A$AP Ferg is under the weather. The Turnt x Burnt tour is Ferg’s first as a headliner. He’s brought his A$AP Mob cohorts (minus Rocky) with him on the road and tonight’s sell out at the Glasshouse is exactly the midway point of their cross-country trek. 14 shows remain and sold out houses have been the norm. Ferg’s tour manager tell...

Monday, 11 November 2013 05:53
Los Angeles - “Weed is tight.” This was the message MellowHigh preached.

But despite the lure and appeal of hip-hop heavyweights, the genre’s general presence has been less than impressive in years past. A...

One thing I have learned from shooting as many shows as I have, is that opportunities often randomly present themselves and lead to some crazy outcomes. That was the exact thing that happened the last night at SXSW. A friend scored Sleigh Bells and Nas passes, sadly I couldn't make it in time for Sleigh Bells, but I was all ready for Nas to take ...
