Son Lux

LIVE REVIEW: Son Lux @ Institute Of Contemporary Art (3/21/14)

Out of all the acts listed on Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art 2014 schedule, experimental electronic musician Son Lux was easily the most thrilling prospect. As a giant glass cube, the ICA is one of Boston’s more modern buildings, only rivaled by MIT’s Stata CenterSon Lux, the stage name for 34-year-old Ryan Lott, blended in with the museum’s hidden theater three floors up, exploring dark synths and hybrid chamber pop with a relaxed mentality that wrangled the overall sound into one bubble.

UTG PHOTOS: Hopsin (2/22/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to photograph Hopsin at Irving Plaza in New York City on February 22, 2014.

Hopsin, Hopsin, Hopsin. I’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff go down at Irving Plaza. It’s one of those iconic New York City venues that although it doesn’t have the highest capacity still manages to book big names. I’ve seen Wiz Khalifa there for $10. I’ve seen the likes of Rise Against, Story of the Year, From First To Last, and countless more command that room. Hell, my father even saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers there once. The …


No Oasis Reunion; Band Re-Releasing First Three Studio Albums In 2014

Oasis are one of the few bands who can still cause a digital fuss online whenever they decide to make an announcement. Not so unlike The Smiths, every hint of action from within the Oasis camp is immediately extrapolated by fans and the press to signify signs of a reunion and possible album/tour/etc. The story this week was that Oasis may finally be putting aside their differences and getting back together, but the truth of the matter is far less incredible.

According to a new update on the recently relaunched Oasis website:

To celebrate the twentieth year since the

The festival, which takes place every year in Columbus, Oh, welcomes dozens of the nation’s top rock bands over a three-day period. You can view a poster for the event below.

Harlot formed in 2013 and, as mentioned above, spent the majority of the year working on material for their as-of-yet unreleased debut album. The …

Antarctica To Host Metallica In December?

It appears that Metallica will be heading to Antarctica in December to play a frozen rock show. Drummer Lars Ulrich mentioned last month that something would be on the horizon for Metallica, though I’m sure little were expecting it to be the southernmost horizon.

Antarctica is 98 percent ice, so it is surely a given that the band must play “Trapped Under Ice” sometime in their frozen set. While conceptually striking, I shouldn’t really find myself surprised by any strange Metallica related news after reviewing their film, Through The Never. Check it out here if you have yet to …


UTG INTERVIEW: Dance Gavin Dance

Dance Gavin Dance have been a mainstay of the post-hardcore scene since their inception due to a combination of particular controversies and phenomenal music, but with a talented lineup that appears to be sailing smoothly alongside the successful release of their fifth full-length, Acceptance Speech, the former key aspect of the group has withered away as they continue to push themselves further and further musically while managing to avoid any unnecessary drama. UTG was able to sit down and chat with the group’s guitarist and main songwriter, Will Swan, at the one and only Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, North …


UTG PHOTOS: Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, & Twenty One Pilots (9/14/13)

Under The Gun sent photographers Corbin Alvae and Tori Thomas to The Palace on September 14 in Auburn Hills, MI.

This tour had an absolutely fabulous line-up on an amazing and memorable sunny day in Michigan! Shocker, since I, Corbin, usually always get stuck in the rain for events as you may have seen in any of my previous sets. Anyway, Tori and I were extremely excited to team up together to capture some photographic memories of this tour filled with acts we both grew up listening to and one newer act who is fantastic! So let’s get to how …


LIVE REVIEW: O’Brother, Native, and Daylight (9/13/13)

Under The Gun Review sent staff writer, Drew Caruso, to the Brighton Music Hall in Allston, MA on Sept. 13 to experience O’Brother with support from Native and Daylight.

I find myself having quite the hard time attempting to put what I had seen, heard, felt, and lost at the Boston stop of the O’Brother, Native, and Daylight tour into words. And by lost I refer to the act of losing any kind of musical limits or parameters I thought I once had, because O’Brother instantly knocked them down with their first unified rhythmic resonance–but more on them …
