  • M.I.A.: Unlike Lady Gaga, I won't be 'blindfolded with naked men feeding me apples'

     
    Never one to put her poison pen down for long, the agit-pop rapper M.I.A. has turned her ire toward Lady Gaga in a recent NME interview (unfortunately, unavailable in original form online). In it, she tosses off probably the best......
  • Theater review: 'Terrarium' at Son of Semele

     
    An overgrowth of metaphor runs through "Terrarium" at Son of Semele. Michael Vukadinovich's play about a long-lost love who returns after 30 years without having aged is nothing if not symbolically inclined. Simultaneously set in 1974 suburban America and...
  • Coachella affected by volcanic ash closing European airports; Frightened Rabbit, Cribs, Los Campesinos! grounded

     
    It's not unusual for a grizzly rocker to show up for a show covered in ash -- cigarette ash, that is -- but how about volcanic ash? According to reports from London, all British airports have been shut down today,......
  • 'The Vampire Diaries': An alternate universe where Stefan is fun

     
    Tonight's episode of "The Vampire Diaries" is called "Under Control," but after what Stefan did last week, I'm pretty sure the title may be slightly misleading. Mystic Falls has been completely turned on its head. Stefan is out for human......
  • Coachella 2010: Observations from the field

     
    If Coachella 2010 were a fictional character, it would be Greta Gerwig in the film "Greenberg." The angsty aggression that fueled Coachella 2008 (remember the dance tent riot during MIA's set?) and the hopeful world-peace-is-possible feel of Coachella...
  • Coachella 2010: Street Sweeper Social Club covers M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" in the late afternoon

     
    The Street Sweeper Social Club's cover of M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" contains multitudes. When guitarist Tom Morello tossed off the opening riff of the song, a sample of the Clash's "Straight to Hell," it was unclear where the song was headed.......
  • Coachella 2010: Sleigh Bells revives rap metal (for the better)

     
    Ponder this: A band that could non-inaccurately be described as a rap-metal version of Ke$ha just played the most searing set of Friday afternoon. Sleigh Bells is a New York duo built on oversexed white-girl rhymes, metalcore guitar riffs and......
  • Coachella 2010: Major Lazer scales a major ladder

     
    One of the few rules of DJing is this -- don't climb on the booth. For your own safety, the safety of your gear and the safety of others, just don't do it. Unless you're in Major Lazer. In which......
  • Coachella 2010 outro: Die Antwoord, so Zef, so fres! [Updated]

     
    With Coachella 2010 quickly receding in the rear-view mirror of festival-goers’ collective consciousness, it is fair to say that there was no shortage of lasting impressions made this year. Highly touted reunions (the Specials, Faith No More, Pavement),...
  • Snap Judgment: M.I.A. drops new track, "Born Free" (and gets Suicide paid)

     
    Anyone who sniveled at M.I.A. for biting the better part of "Straight To Hell" for her biggest hit to date should probably be sitting down for new her single. "Born Free" consists of this, and this alone: some trashy drum......
  • M.I.A. makes her stance utterly clear with 'Born Free' video [UPDATED]

     
    M.I.A. protested in the all-caps mode she favors when the rattling, violent video for her brash new single "Born Free" was pulled from YouTube early Tuesday morning. After using Twitter to blame her record label and then retracting that accusation......
