Jimmy Hu$tle Shares “The Price Is Going Up”

Ohio native Jimmy Hu$tle may have abandoned the midwest for sunny California, but he’s proving with his latest single that he still has a Cleveland attitude.

“The Price Is Going Up” found its way online earlier today, October 1. The song is the latest in a string of digital singles promoting Hustle’s forthcoming #Dumbhustle mixtape (due out October 31). The video is performance heavy, but it’s shot and edited in a such a way that it never becomes boring. You can view the visuals below.…

Runaway Brother 2014

Runaway Brother Signs To Tiny Engines

It has finally happened. ‘Best Band in Cleveland’ aka Runaway Brother has signed a record deal with Tiny Engines. The band’s full-length will be released on the label later this year.

I’ve had the opportunity to know Runaway Brother for quite some time. I’ve seen them play on stages, in basements, and even in a library. Each time, I’m met with the same feeling, the same question, “Why aren’t they signed?” I’m not alone. Conversation in the crowd of a Runaway Brother normally goes something like, “Holy shit, these guys are good.” “Yea dude, this band is amazing. They’re …

LIVE REVIEW: The Great American Cult Tour – Cleveland, OH 3/5/14 (Photos)

Opening night of the Great American Cult Tour took place in Cleveland, OH last week. As Bayside’s first headlining tour in some time, I was prepared for a fantastic show. I wasn’t disappointed.

I asked local photographer Andy Wells to accompany me and his pictures from the show can be found below.

The lineup: Ohio’s own pop-punk quartet Mixtapes, Post-Grunge standouts Daylight, returning champs Four Year Strong, and then Bayside themselves.…

UTG PHOTOS: Tegan and Sara (2/7/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to photograph Tegan and Sara at the Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland on February 7, 2014.

I have to admit, I’ve had a girl crush on Tegan and Sara ever since I first heard “Walking With A Ghost” a decade ago. This killer track, from 2004′s So Jealous, ended up on countless mix CDs I made that coincided with my new driver’s license and newfound freedom to cruise around and blast whatever tunes I wanted.  That was ten years ago — fast forward to now and I was more than psyched …

Boston Justin Bieber Clothing

Boston-based Clothing Company Prevented From Selling Justin Bieber Nazi Shirt

A Boston clothing company has been trying to manufacture t-shirts that display Justin Bieber with a swastika on his forehead, but now–surprise–it looks like they’re being thwarted. Let’s Rage Clothing had the“all-over” t-shirt for sale on their website, but now customers who try to purchase the garment receive a message explaining that no one will actually print it.

The message is as follows:

Thank you for contacting us! I checked your order and it looks like you purchased our Justin Bieber Swastika t-shirt. Unfortunately, we can’t find a printing facility that will actually make those shirts so they’ve been

Runaway Brother

WATCH: Runaway Brother – “Faking It”

Hey look, a new Runaway Brother song! I love those!

This song is called “Faking It” and it hasn’t been released on any record thus far. This video is the first I’ve seen or heard of it.

You should know by now that Runaway Brother is one of our favorite midwest acts, so the need to explain their exceptional qualities has past. Just watch the video and see for yourself.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Hey, Jake, nice ‘stache.…

UTG INTERVIEW: Stages and Stereos on the GK Tour

On October 30, 2013 in Cleveland Ohio, Editor Jacob Tender attended the GK Tour featuring Mayday Parade, Man Overboard, Cartel, and buzz band Stages & Stereos.

After enjoying Cartel’s set for the 3rd time this year, he pushed his way through a vicious crowd of Tumblr-addicted Mayday Parade fans and meandered backstage to the supporting band’s greenroom to find Stages & Stereos who agreed to have a little chat.

Let’s start with the basics. Your name. It’s a Bayside reference, right?

Daniel Lancaster: Yes. That was one of Ian’s ideas. “Storming Stages & Stereos.” (from “They

UTG TV: Childish Gambino Plays A New Song, “Shadows,” in Cleveland

So my sister says “Jake, I really want to go see Childish Gambino play in Cleveland.”

“I just got off work, Sarah. Give me a minute, would you?”

I shower, do some stuff, and go to a bonfire with some co-workers. I get a text. “Jake, please. I really want to go and mom says I can’t unless you take me. I’ll pay.”

“Deal.”

Childish Gambino played Cleveland State University’s homecoming last night and while I’m told the student body didn’t vote for him, I’m most certainly glad he played. Everyone had a good time. It was a fantastic set.…

Under The Gun sent Head Of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to the Agora in Cleveland August 8 for Silversun Pickups.

Silversun Pickups headlined The Agora in Cleveland recently with direct support from Mona, who are originally Ohio natives. Silversun Pickups are always a joy onstage, both from their intense sound and presence.  I had the pleasure of catching them the last time they came through Cleveland and their set was immaculate. This show was no different!…

UTG PHOTOS: Imagine Dragons With The Neighbourhood (7/30/13)

Under The Gun sent Head of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to check out Imagine Dragons at Jacobs Pavilion in Cleveland on July 30, 2013.

Every summer, a tour comes through town that surpasses all the rest. Summer is a time for incredible shows available at outdoor venues, offering fans a chance to cherish the warm weather, summer nights, and soundtrack of their favorite bands set amidst dusk in the city. If I had to vote on a breakout tour that exceeded my expectations and was the best of summer 2013, Imagine Dragons with The Neighbourhood would be it.

Imagine Dragons headlined …

Mac Miller descended upon Cleveland this week, bringing his version of crazy to a sold out House of Blues on Wednesday, July 24 for his Space Migration Tour. Along with Mac, Chance The Rapper and Earl Sweatshirt graced the stage and got the crowd in full blown hip hop show mode.  What’s the difference between a rock show and a hip hop show at House of Blues? Like night and day on different planets in two different universes.…
