Aux.tv looks at 26 (because the stats say you get more clicks if you use weird numbers like this) pop-punk bands that are "somehow" still around. Lots of hilarious digs at pop-punk being like Trix cereal: just for kids. A lot of this relates well with topics in the last two episodes of our podcast. (I'll be honest, even I didn't even remember The Ataris were still around.)
New Jersey-based Midtown were named accurately: Initially signed to Drive-Thru, they cut three albums—the most memorable being 2002′s Living Well is the Best Revenge—of completely middling pop-punk. It was serviceable if forgettable side-stage-of-the-Warped-Tour fare; singer Gabe Saporta, in fact, would get more...

Remember the famous potato salad? Well, the creator ended up making over $55,000. He says he'll use roughly $25k to pay all the stretch goals on his project and then use the rest of the money for PotatoStock 2014.
We have a giant outdoor space reserved (The Columbus Commons) for September 27th, 2014, from noon to 8pm. The show is free and all proceeds from selling concessions will go to a permanent fund to end hunger and homelessness in Central Ohio. We are currently working to sign bands and will continue to post updates as we get them!

The Economist breaks down your career chances if you have tattoos. The video feature can be found here, the article here:
In a forthcoming study, Mr Timming and colleagues asked participants to assess job candidates based on their pictures, some of which were altered to add a neck tattoo. Inked candidates consistently ranked lower, despite being equally qualified. In a separate study Mr Timming found that many service-sector managers were squeamish about conspicuous ink, particularly when filling jobs that involve dealing with customers.

Yahoo have posted some more of the Q&A with Hayley Williams of Paramore.
I'm starting to accept that 25 is not 16. Seven or eight years ago, we would go to Taco Bell, grab a bean burrito and run onstage. Now, getting ready for a show takes two hours – Jeremy and Taylor [York, Paramore's guitarist] have to wrap their ankles, and I have to do stretches so I don't hurt my neck from headbanging. I'm loving it, but I definitely might collapse at one of these shows.
