UTG INTERVIEW: Jay Mohr On Stand-Up, George Carlin, And His “Hotel California”

“If anyone thinks my show was ‘pretty good,’ then I’ve completely failed.”

It’s hard to edit down an interview when the person you’re talking to is an incredible interviewer himself. Not only did Jay Mohr devote time to our conversation, but he often turned the table, asking me my opinion on various issues.

Furthermore, it is impossible to define Mohr in a succinct way, given that he’s done so many different things so well. You may recognize him as a stand-up comedian or an actor. You may have seen him on Saturday Night Live or listen to his podcast Mohr

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Best Buy Theater in New York City to photograph The Decibel Magazine Tour on April 11, 2014.

In 2014, March Madness came in the form of decades of metal. The Decibel Magazine Tour spanned across 21 cities, traveling between Orlando and Seattle before wrapping up in the Northeast.

The tour featured metal legends Carcass, our friends in The Black Dahlia Murder, Canada’s Gorguts, and the youngsters in Noisem.

Check out below the jump to see some photos from the show. If you made it out to see any …

UTG PHOTOS: HIM & Anathema (3/16/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Irving Plaza in New York City to photograph HIM and Anathema on March 16, 2014.

On March 14 and 16, HIM and Anathema were able to draw some heavy duty crowds to New York’s Irving Plaza. The audience wasn’t a sea of 16-year-old screaming girls, which was a breath of fresh air compared to many of the shows I attend. That being said, I was overwhelmingly shocked at the level of noise that room was able to create through screaming and cheering alone.

Professional sound systems and acoustics were no match for …

"My Wife Hates Me" Live Podcast Taping

UTG PHOTOS & REVIEW: ‘My Wife Hates Me’ Live Podcast Taping (3/11/14)

“What are you guys watching that sex looks like making sausages?”

On Tuesday, March 11, some of the greatest minds in comedy and radio joined forces at the Comedy Cellar’s Village Underground in New York City. Things got weird. The special event was a live podcast taping of Rich Vos and Bonnie McFarlane’s show My Wife Hates Me. The married couple also shared an occupation, stand-up comedy.

The live taping was produced by fellow comic Robert Kelly for the Riotcast Network. The show was a “live marriage counseling” session of sorts. The moderator (conceivably the couple’s therapist for …

Flogging Molly at Roseland Ballroom

UTG PHOTOS: Flogging Molly (2/27/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Roseland Ballroom in New York City to photograph Flogging Molly on February 27, 2014.

In 2004, Flogging Molly released Within A Mile Of Home. I was 13 years old and I bought the 12” record at the mall. It was one of my early new vinyl purchases. Shortly after, I purchased their previous record Drunken Lullabies (2002) on a picture disc. A decade has since gone by and I’ve finally had the chance to see the band perform. From what I can remember, many of the band’s tours were sponsored by …

Shaggy at Brooklyn Bowl (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)

UTG PHOTOS: Shaggy (2/25/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Brooklyn Bowl in New York to photograph Shaggy on February 25, 2014.

On February 25, Brooklyn Bowl hosted an epic concert to a sold-out crowd. The venue, which has a capacity of 600, has hosted quite a few packed shows. From the Bouncing Souls to Action Bronson, I’ve had a blast every time I’ve been there. This show, in particular was fantastic. Well, if we want to get technical, it was boombastic. Yes, I went there.

Shaggy took stage in Brooklyn to a venue that features a bowling alley and some …

Scott Ian at BB Kings

UTG PHOTOS & REVIEW: Scott Ian’s ‘Speaking Words’ Tour (3/5/14)

Ladies and gentlemen, UTG can now double-confirm that Scott Ian is a very well-spoken, hilarious, and brutally honest man. If you were able to catch our interview with him a little while back, you probably chuckled at some of that charisma while perusing our conversation with him.

When his first ever US spoken word tour came through B.B. King’s in New York City, we were able to check out the show and catch up with Ian afterwards. It was certainly interesting seeing the shredder from Anthrax take stage in a blues club, much less without any other musicians and only …

Shai Hulud

UTG PHOTOS: Shai Hulud (2/24/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to the Amityville Music Hall in New York to photograph Shai Hulud on February 24, 2014.

At the very end of a two-month tour that Shai Hulud boasted as fueled by sickness, Del Taco, Subway, snow, burritos, new friends, van breakdowns, and all around “shenanigans,” the band played a final show in Amityville, NY. The guys shared the stage with Extinction AD, Walkers, and many more.

The New York show was just what the guys needed after some killer shows alongside This Or The Apocalypse, Sworn In, Sirens & Sailors, …

Hopsin at Irving Plaza (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)

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 …

Under The Gun sent photographer Tori Thomas to photograph the fun. and Miniature Tigers show in Grand Rapids on April 18th.

I arrived at The Intersection in Grand Rapids, MI expecting a great show, and that’s exactly what I got. The show started off with Miniature Tigers pumping up the crowd; they did a great job at that. I’ve been a fan of Miniature Tigers for quite some time and this was my first time seeing them perform live; it was a real treat. They played some of there old songs and some new songs from their recent release, Mia

From Tori:

The crowd was packed with everyone anticipating a fun, energetic evening. And that’s truly what they got! I’ve seen every band on this tour, besides The Downtown Fiction. I was expecting nothing but fantastic from Mayday Parade, We The Kings, and Anarbor, and that’s what they did! Anarbor was up first for performing, and I expected nothing but amazing from them. I’ve …

UTG PHOTOS: Careless World Tour (Tyga & Lil’ Twist)

Young Money heavyweight Tyga brought his wildly successful Careless World Tour to the Wilbur Theater in Boston, MA last night and UTG was there to capture all the action.

It was a near-blizzard when I left my apartment to head downtown on March 1 for the Careless World tour. After months of unusually warm weather, Winter had spent nearly every hour since the dawn of Leap Day dowsing our fair city with snow, wind gusts, and more ice than anyone wanted in their life, but nothing would stop me from finally introducing the UTG world to YMCMB. Following an hour …
