Friend of the site Jack Barakat of All Time Low is now a co-owner of of the Rockwell, a bar in Baltimore. Alt Press interviewed Jack about his involvement.
I started to go to this bar a lot just because I liked the music they played, and the owner, Bryan, is a friend of mine. He approached me and was like, ďI want you to come in on this. I think itís something that youíd really be interested in. Itís right up your alley. Itís something that I think together we could make a pretty awesome place.Ē Bryan is also the owner of the Sound Garden, which is one of the most successful record stores in the U.S.

In the short amount of space afforded here, hear me out. Like a lot of people, I have battled depression all my life. Itís nothing special, in that itís too common to be considered unique. This state has made me have to do things in a certain way to remain operational. There have been some truly awful stretches, as I am sure there have been for anyone who deals with depression, that have at times rendered me almost paralytic. Hours pass and I slow-cook on a cold spit. I have likened it to being a peach in a can of syrup yet fully conscious. In an attempt to keep moving along, I must stay in the immediate present tense, acutely aware of...
I've recently been speculating (in podcasts and blogs) that we're moving even more toward a 'just press play' model for most music listeners. This new device called the "Cone" seems to be one of the first hardware products that does just this. Basically it's a cone that plays music tuned to your tastes. Even as a long proponent of listening to full-albums I still find this idea interesting -- as I know most of my friends and family just want to hear something they like and not think about it. The music becomes part of their background, whereas for many of those that probably follow this website: we want music to be an experience in and of itself (and this may be one reason vinyl has seen...
Taylor Swift sets a record for the highest debut in the history of Billboard's Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart, where "Shake It Off" blasts in at No. 9. On the Pop Songs chart, "Shake" soars in at No. 12, tying the record for the best-ever launch.
Iím never going to tell God what he can and canít do, so I wonít say Memphis arenít going to be the next Metallica. But I will say thereís a chance that we wonít be. I have the ability, the means and resources to do something like this solo album, so there was absolutely no reason why I shouldnít have made it. But I want to make it really clear that Memphis are my priority.
Grimes has penned a blog where she states she will not be donating money from the Ice Bucket Challenge to the ALS Association because they test on animals. In a statement to the Daily Banter, an ALSA spokesperson has responded:
Significant advances have been made in ALS and other neurological disorders such as Alzheimerís Disease and Parkinsonís Disease using model systems such as rodents, flies and worms to better understand disease mechanisms and to develop therapies. With advances in technology made possible through research funding from the ALS Association, different approaches to minimize the use of these model systems are being developed. Similar to organizations globally, the ALS...
According to Kiley, Driscoll's steady "fall from grace" provides an illustration about how power can corrupt even the best of us. Kiley was loaned a copy of Driscoll's high school yearbook, which was a testament to how charismatic and likable he was: his many accolades included Most Likely to Succeed and Nicest Guy. "He wasn't always this macho, chest-thumping, I'm-gonna-kick-the-shit-out-of-you guy," said Kiley. There was a time, he said, when Driscoll genuinely seemed to want to help people.
