I don't think I really chose to do it to the extent that I ended up doing it. I have been treading lightly over playing new stuff. I've always felt that the moment when you rip the sheet off the statue is such a great and holy moment, you know? It's the song as it was imagined and fully fleshed out on a record. Then recently it just sort of feels like, "I'm really happy. I really love these songs. These are really fun, I want to play them." Even if they're not the way they'll end up, it's important to have fun. I went into those shows feeling it would be silly for me not to try playing as many as possible, even if I...

Oklahoma City punks, Red City Radio, played at Austin's Red 7 on Friday October 10th to a small but rowdy crowd. Openers Threes Away and Direct Hit! were some of the most solid openers I had seen in a while. Check out photos of Red City Radio in the comments.
Read a new Noisey article with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail on the band's legacy, past, and present.
By the time Let it Enfold You, the band’s proper debut, had been released by Vagrant records in 2004, Senses Fail had gone, as Nielson puts it, from being a “shitty band from New Jersey” to the upper echelon of the Warped Tour set, playing “late-night TV shows and arenas,” which came with all the pluses (Fans! Stardom!) and minuses (Being called a sell-out! Having dumb hair!) that a sudden rise entailed. “You looked around and you were like, ‘This is 80s metal!’ These guys are wearing makeup, you’re out here on tour with Jared Leto who’s a fucking movie star, you’re fucked up, doing wild...

When you have to make that trip to the record store, spend your money, and get burned on shitty albums sometimes, it makes you appreciate the good ones a little more. When you get to rip open that packaging and drive around listening to one album for weeks, there’s a connection that is hard to replicate in 2014. By the time you start getting into music, that experience will probably be long gone, and you’ll find different ways to connect with music. You’ll probably hear old people like me talking about how you kids don’t appreciate shit because you’ve never had to save up your money to buy that CD that the older kids in school were all talking about. I...

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of catching Jimmy Eat World on their 10 year anniversary tour for Futures in Kansas City. Check out my review of the night in the replies.
Although the tour wouldn't be hitting St. Louis, there was no question that I would be making the trek out to Kansas City to catch the band on their 10 year anniversary tour of the album that changed my life so many years ago. I had caught the band once before a few years back, and to say they put on a great live show would be a massive understatement. Couple that with the fact that Futures would be performed front to back, and a four hour drive both ways to Kansas City seemed more than worth it.
