We Came As Romans Stream Acoustic Version Of “Hope”

Michigan post-hardcore titans We Came As Romans have a long history of finding the perfect balance between heavy and soft. Recently, the group has been experimenting with a more stripped down sound, and today an acoustic version of one recent single found its way online.

Success Continues For ‘The Hobbit’ This Pre-Christmas Weekend

Despite the debut of so many other heavyweights this weekend, including the highly anticipated Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, studio estimates are showing that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will come out as the highest grossing film. The movie, which made its original US release last weekend with over 70 million in sales, saw some […]


‘Frozen’ Overcomes Box Office Heat From ‘Catching Fire’ and ‘Out of the Furnace’

In its second weekend, Disney’s Frozen earned another $31.6 million, which was enough for it to overtake The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($27 million) for the #1 spot at the weekend box office and prevent Catching Fire from pulling off the rare three-peat. The post-Thanksgiving weekend frame is typically a weak one as it provides […]

Catching Fire‘s ongoing box office success has not yet ceased since the sequel’s debut last weekend. There were a few different top ten newcomers this thanksgiving weekend, but none came as close to matching Catching Fire‘s $74.5 million dollar gross as much as Disney’s latest animated film, Frozen, which is currently estimated to earn about […]

LIVE REVIEW + PHOTOS: The Gaslight Anthem + Laura Stevenson and the Cans (Dec 3 at 930 Club, DC)

Earlier this month I made my way out to the 930 Club in Washington DC to see the very popular rock group The Gaslight Anthem with Laura Stevenson and the Cans. Normally I shy away from the 930 Club (although it’s not a terrible venue) because generally a lot of the acts that play there […]


WATCH: Mumford And Sons Cover The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends” In London

It was bound to happen eventually, right? Mumford And Sons put on one hell of a homecoming show London’s 02 Arena last night, and today clips from the show have begun to pop up online. One of the more compelling pieces of footages to surface so far has been a stunning live rendition of The […]


STREAM: Bruno Mars – “Moonshine”

We are less than a month from the release of Bruno Mars’ Sophomore album, and this morning we’re greeted by the record’s latest single, “Moonshine.” The song made its debut on iTunes this morning, but the track was simply too good to leave alone on a digital store. “Locked Out Of Heaven” did nothing for […]

MOVIE TRAILER: Judd Apatow’s “This Is 40″

Sequels are everywhere these days, but I’m willing to bet you have not seen many quite like Judd Apatow’s This Is 40. The film expands upon the story of Pete (Rudd) and Debbie (Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up and shows us first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life. Things […]
