Going to a show but not familiar with an artist's catalog? A new web app called "Set Listener" will create a Spotify playlist for you of an artist's most recent show's setlist.
To use The Set Listener just type in the artist name, and hit the search button, you’ll be presented with a playlist of songs from that artist’s most recent show. Hit the ‘Save this playlist to Spotify’ button and you’ll have a Spotify playlist that you can listen to on your desktop or on your mobile phone.

Shane Told (Silverstein) is back with another sports blog in which he offers another perspective on the incident involving Tigers Jaw. Check it out in the replies.
But we are. Everyone is the same. Whether it's a boy or girl singing on stage or someone walking down the street or in a classroom, no one should have to deal with being touched or sexually assaulted. For some reason musicians on stage are viewed as some kind of approachable sex symbols. And I'm sure a lot of people have seen a girl get on stage and hug a lead singer and not thought twice about whether or not they wanted to be hugged. But I certainly wouldn't walk up to a girl on the street I thought was cool or attractive...

Fuse has posted a new video interview with Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.
Although the tour doesn't wrap up until late August, Wentz revealed that the fellas are already looking forward to gigs in South Africa, their final set of shows for this album. And as for upcoming projects that fans can look forward to, don't completely write off a Fall Out Boy musical!

Noisey published a really interesting interview with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst. The site also premiered his new film The Truth. I recommend it.
I’m a simple person. I’m just me. I’m no more special than anybody. I think people are like, “What’s so special about that fuckin’ guy? Nothing! He gets on my fuckin’ nerves!” I go, “Well, I get on my nerves too. What the hell am I doing here? What happened?” It’s crazy. I just have some stories inside of me that I need to tell. I feel compelled to put them out and to give them away, for people to react to. It seems like everything I do, meaning finds me later.

Ryan Rockwell from Mixtapes sort of tried to explain his side of the incident at Warped Tour on his podcast. I listened to most of this thing and didn't hear the words "I'm sorry" used once, and I'm still a little confused why this wasn't what he immediately said on Twitter instead of the sarcastic "yeah?" he posted soon after. Couldn't the easy response have been, "it was a horrible joke gone wrong, I immediately corrected myself and am an idiot, I am so sorry I said that" on Twitter? That would have obviously been reported if he tweeted that instead.
I always like to mess with the rest of my band if they’re talking. Maura was talking about that situation and I wasn’t really thinking...

Matt Wachter has left Angels and Airwaves.
Matt Wachter we love him! We are sad to see him go, but the man now has 3 amazing kids and needs to be at home this year to be a Dad... And of course we support him. Dick jokes and memories will not fade.. We are all still great friends, so don't freak out kids-- Matt still might join us later down the road somewhere and somehow. Until then I have to just send him naked photos of men to make him smile..

Pegasus Festival happened outside of Dallas, Texas this weekend. This is the first festival for Ghostlight Concerts, and they did a decent job.The big draw was Brand New but in true Brand-New-style, there were a lot of let down fans. Luckily, Circa Survive, Bad Books, PM Today, and Residual Kid were there to save the day. Hit the replies to read my full review of the festival.
Brand New took one hundred years to actually take the stage and opened with "Sowing Season," followed by a lot of Daisy and D&G.

Billboard has obtained "a typical contract" being offered by YouTube to indie label partners for its new subscription service.
Those company payment percentages are lower than the combined 70% in revenue (approximately) that the interactive, premium component of services like Spotify or Rdio pay to labels and publisher rights owners, according to label and digital service sources.

But, it turns out, indies’ unhappiness with YouTube has more to do with contract terms other than the rates they would be paying.

The main beef with YouTube is the company's take-it-or-leave-it approach, which they say includes an onerous and negative most-favored-nation clause. If any major label or...

Dr. David Glowacki, a leading US scientist and research fellow at the Royal Society in London, was booted from the Bristol Old Vic after he tried to crowdsurf during Handel's "Messiah."
Dr Glowacki has attacked the decision to force him to leave the concert by saying: ‘Classical music, trying to seem cool and less stuffy, reeks of some sort of fossilised art form undergoing a midlife crisis.’
