Front Porch Step was reportedly in a fight last night in Oakland.
There appeared to be a lot of commotion around the bar and then outside the venue after Front Porch Step’s set, but now it has been confirmed that singer Jake McElfresh was attacked by three men at the bar, but only suffered a black eye before security and friends came to his aid.

Virgin has posted a new in-focus feature on how to fix the music industry.
In amongst all the anger, however, are a big set of opportunities. Music is now more widely available than at any other point in time, while new innovations in recording, distribution and live shows are coming thick and fast. The music industry has sadly failed to cope with the technological advancements which have allowed other sectors to flourish. Wasting so many years resisting change has left it playing catch-up, so how can it be fixed?

The end of CMJ seems like the perfect excuse to bring back the Bored On Sunday column and discuss the best bands we've all discovered at music festivals. Despite most festivals having incredible lineups, with hundreds (if not thousands) of artists playing, there are always a few performances that stand out. They're often not the most popular shows, the most attended, or the most talked about, but they are what stand out to you and me... and what make the festival experience so memorable.

I spent the entire week roaming the streets of NYC, partying with fellow AP.net writers, and seeing band after band after band. I couldn't make a list of every artist I saw this past week, as is the...

Death Cab for Cutie talked with Stereogum about preparing for their final album with Chris Walla.
When we finished the last record he had actually suggested that maybe we work with an outside person the next time, just as a way to shake things up. He’s produced all of our albums, so he’s always kind of had the right of first refusal anyway. When we got started on this record he just sort of resumed the producer role, but as we got a little further into the process he was like, “Well, maybe I’m not the best guy for this record,” and that was really fine. It wasn’t like we suddenly had the rug pulled out from under us or anything. We weren’t suddenly in a state of free fall.
