I recently wrote an article about the joy of emo music, my passion for The Get Up Kids' Something To Write Home About and a few sentimental things about believing in your dreams and whatnot. Have a read of it here.
That's only present in you because you're 14 years old. For some people, 14 is the age that they retreat in to their basements for the rest of their lives to make an existence out of Mountain Dew and 4Chan. For others, 14 means finding new bands and discovering the beautiful world of the genres that Billboard doesn't cover. For me, 14 meant discovering The Get Up Kids. Something To Write Home About, to be precise.

Looks like Death Grips will not be playing Lollapalooza.
Last night, Death Grips were tapped to play an officially sanctioned Lollapalooza aftershow at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago. They didn't show up. According to several reports from Reddit and Twitter, after learning that the band wouldn't play, fans proceeded to destroy their equipment, including a drum kit that was presumably Zach Hill's. [...] According to Lollapalooza's representatives, the band "chose not to arrive in Chicago" and will not play the festival.

Update: Blake from the band has posted a statement.
As some of you have already noticed, our record label Fueled By Ramen has moved us into the Alumni section of their roster. It is true that we will no longer be a part of FBR, as we’ve decided to split ways. We’re extremely grateful to everyone over at FBR and want to thank them for all of the amazing work and time they’ve put into helping develop our band over the years. There is still new music on the way, although we wont be releasing anything until all business stuff is fully sorted. Thank you for always supporting us and being...

Salon has posted an article looking at the reaction some fans of The Postal Service had upon learning that the opening act for their recent tour was Big Freedia. The title of the article, "White music fans are afraid of difference: When Postal Service fans get aggressively upset over a black opening act, that's evidence of a bigger problem," may turn some readers off -- but the article is definitely worth the read and discussion.
Maybe the most pissed and confounded Twitter responders to Big Freedia’s show hate rap, hip-hop and butts. But I bet they don’t. They appear to be white people mostly in their late 20s like me, and I bet they consume all kinds of music. But they were walking...

Hey what's up guys. Misha here just wanting to clear up a few things. We actually have a page administrator that runs the Facebook in our off time but it seems he got a little overzealous in that last post.

I am very excited about this album, as it holds an idea and concept I came up with on my own and for six months carried to fruition (and yes Jake, Sean, Gabe and Felipe wrote all the music with me). It is literally, my baby. And when the...

Many of you have been curious about what we were up to in LA this week and it was so hard to keep it a secret.. and not instagram every minute of it haha.

So here it is: We decided to head into the studio early just for you and record a brand new single that none of you have heard yet! It will be released later this month so stay posted!!

Best Intentions has been out for 2 years now! That’s a long life for our first record and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for that. The least we could do is release a new song in return!
