Dan Deacon: I Turn My Camera On

Dan Deacon must have been as sick of his one-man show as I was. There's only so much you can get out of a live performance that consists of one dude pressing a few buttons and singing through a Woody Woodpecker vocal filter. So the man at the center...

Mastodon: I Turn My Camera On

Atlanta metal monsters Mastodon turned up to 11 at the 9:30 club last night. Our man Kyle Gustafson was there to get pictures. His current G-chat status message reads: "Mastodon is the metal version of My Morning Jacket." I take it he means both in terms of hair and bombast....

Photo-Caption Contest: Ne-Yo

Ne-Yo did his thing at Constitution Hall last night -- his thing being melody-rich, well-mannered R&B delivered in an elegant, super-suave style. He also brought a bit of sexy back to the stage, with the help of girdle-clad dancers -- one of whom kinda looked like Margaret Cho, the most...

Usher may have wanted it to be Ladies Only last night, but at least one dude made it into the Warner Theatre: our ace photographer, Kyle "Leafblower" Gustafson, who got some great photos. After reading thousands and thousands of words about the historic election, why not take the time to...

I Turn My Camera On: Lykke Li

On Sunday night I went to see [Name Redacted]. As you can see by the pictures linked in there (here if you're lazy), that band's lead singer kind of looks like George "the Animal" Steele.

Photo-Caption Contest: The Killers

Island Def Jam just announced the details of a new Killers album: "Day & Age," out Nov. 25, produced by dance-music dude Stuart Price, first single 'Human," etc etc etc. What really struck me about the release, though, was the band's new publicity photo: It's ... um ... well ......
