Sneak Peek of Paramore Live From Merriweather

We're big fans of Paramore around here. Chris Richards loved pretty much every minute of the band's show at Merriweather on Friday, which was filmed by MTV for "Ulalume: Howling at New Moon." Guess it has something to do with that new vampire movie, but all we care about...

Spotted: Small D.C. Record Label Namechecked on Teen Drama

So I have last night's episode of "Gossip Girl" ready to watch on the DVR, but a friend's Facebook status update informed me of a pretty funny line from the show (um, spoiler alert!) where Dan made Vanessa swear on on her "Simple Machines 7-inches." Now there's an obscure reference...

Some Brief Thoughts on Dave Grohl

As I was watching Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters gang ham it up on "Top Chef" on Wednesday night, I thought to myself, "I wonder what Kurt Cobain would think of his old drummer being on a cooking reality show on Bravo?" (Nevermind the fact that...

CMAs: They Advertised What, Where?

NASHVILLE -- Driving back from a recording session with Sebastian Bach just now (more on that insanity later), I got stuck behind a delivery truck whose contents were actually outside: On the back and both sides of the truck were illuminated billboards advertising Tim McGraw's Nov. 22 hosting appearance on...

More Adventures in Bad Morrissey/Smiths Covers in Bizarre Places

Halfway through the NFL's regular season, most of us have finally gotten used to regularly hearing that countrified cover of Morrissey's "Every Day Is Like Sunday" in NFL ads. It's still lame, just not so jarring. So last night I'm watching another OMG amaaazing episode of "Gossip Girl" when all...

Live Last Night, On TV - Episode 4

I'm glad I restarted this feature. Not because it's easy -- DVRing, watching and blurbing 20 or so performances is a much bigger pain than you think. But it's becoming increasingly possible to surround yourself only with music you like, or would be inclined to like, so this exercise is...

Spotted: 'Gossip Girl' Dissing Jack Johnson

Overheard on last night's season premiere of Post Rock's favorite teen drama chronicling the lives of the very rich and pouty: Jenny Humphrey: The white party's, like, super-exclusive. Summer interns do not get to go. Last year they even turned away Jack Johnson! Rufus Humphrey: Sounds like a party with...

Anything That's Rock 'N' Roll

This is what it sounds like/When sparks fly. (Stephan Savoia/AP) Sunday was a musical kind of day on Fox. Kinda. In between all the lame ads (many of which featured familiar music or familiar musicians); lamer Ryan Seacrest interviews; inane analytical blather ("the New York football Giants can not...

Boys Who Sing Like Little Girls Are Kings Of 'The Hills'

Like Afroman says: Because I sing high!(Lois Raimondo/TWP) "I sing like a little girl." - James Blunt, at the 9:30 club, 3/13/06 That, he does! When I reviewed the doe-eyed one's show last year, I noted that there was an upper-register pandemic in popular music, where sensitive-guy pop-rock artists...
