We were not on site for the event, but thankfully one dedicated fan pulled out their phone and captured the entire performance on video for the world to enjoy. You …

PVRIS Perform “St. Patrick” For Empty Room Sessions

It’s time to stop fooling around and hop on the PVRIS bandwagon. Need proof? Allow me…

PVRIS are one of the must-see buzz bands on this summer’s Warped Tour, and after listening to their music it’s not hard to understand why. Fronted by Lynn Gunn, this fast-rising three piece offer a unique take on rock that is both beautifully melancholy and impossible to resist, with lyrics that cut straight to the heart of anyone willing to listen. Their latest, “St. Patrick,” exemplifies this well, and in recent weeks the group took time from their busy schedule to perform that single …

All Time Low Cover Jimmy Eat World’s “Hear You Me”

All Time Low are a band born out of a mutual admiration for the influential punk and indie bands of the early 2000s, so it may come as no surprise that the group recently paid tribute to one of their favorite bands during a benefit performance in Baltimore.

On July 12 of this year, the members of All Time Low performed a stripped down set as part of a benefit show in Baltimore, MD. During their show, the guys surprised fans by sharing a full band acoustic cover of Jimmy Eat World’s “Hear You Me.” We were not on the …

Must See: Watch Lzzy Hale Help Eric Church Bring Rock And Roll To The CMT Awards

We don’t cover the world of country music all that often, but when we heard that Lzzy Hale of Halestorm made an appearance alongside Eric Church on last night’s CMT Awards we knew right away a post needed to be made.

You might not know Eric Church, but he’s been called everything from the guy who is bringing rock back to country, to ‘country’s bad boy,’ and everything in between. Last night he brought Hale along to perform a track titled “That’s Damn Rock And Roll” and it did not take long for Hale to steal the show. You can …

O-Town Announce Reunion (Without Ashley Parker Angel), Plan UK Performance

Following a ten year hiatus, 4/5 of the boy band known as O-Town have decided to reunite and attempt a comeback. As the band said in their initial announcement, “This isn’t just a reunion for us. It’s a new beginning.”

Teased at the beginning of April and confirmed in various stories over the last couple weeks, the return of O-Town is one I am not sure anyone anticipated. The group was originally created as part of the ABC television series Making The Band in 2000, which helped launched a brief-yet-popular career that included two full length releases and numerous singles. …

Pharrell Brings All His Friends Onstage For An Excellent Coachella Performance

Mr. Do It All and suspected vampire Pharrell Williams took the stage in Indio, California Saturday night (donning his gone-viral hat that aids in preventing wildfires and appears to double as a bird house) for a guest-filled (and dust-filled) set that seemed to wow those in attendance. Throughout his 18-song performance Pharrell brought Nelly, Busta Rhymes, P Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Tyler, The Creator, and Diplo onstage for various tracks as the desert dust progressively took a toll on Lil’ Skateboard P’s pipes.

Toward the end of his set, Pharrell could hardly sing at all, finally giving up during …

Watch Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon Perform Together on ‘The Tonight Show’

It’s no secret that Jimmy Fallon books incredible acts for his show. He’s hung out with Springsteen, joked with Vedder, and had the President of the United States slow jam the news. But once again, Fallon became the giddy fan he is inside, this time for Billy Joel.

Joel performed “You May Be Right” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where part-way through Fallon joined in with a James Brown impression. Look out for some forward singing, dancing, and sax playing. During the interview, Fallon and Joel sang The Lion King theme song as a two-man doo-wop group with …
