Alkaline Trio Announce Special Mini Tour


Alkaline Trio have been quiet for sometime now, except for their appearances at Riot Fest earlier this year, so how else would you return to the forefront of fans’ minds than with a big and really cool announcement.

Today, the Illinois-based band announced that they will be going out on a very short tour where they will play all eight of their albums over a four night span, in eight different cities.

Confused? Well, don’t be.

Alkaline Trio will spend four days in one city where each night they will perform two of their albums in full.

If you’re still confused about it, just check out the flyer for the event below which also displays the cities they will be performing at as well as the dates.


Alkaline Trio’s most recent release was actually a twofer. The band released two albums on the same day in 2012; one titled My Shame is True and another, an EP, titled Broken Wing.

Pharrell and Gwen Stefani Make Their ‘Voice’ Debut


The Voice have been changing judges every season lately with only Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and country singer Blake Shelton holding onto their bright red spinning chairs.

In the upcoming seventh season of the hit NBC singing competition, it was already announced that mega-producer and “Happy” singer Pharrell Williams will be taking the seat that was once occupied by former judge, Cee Lo Green (or Usher).

Last week, talk began that No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani would be taking the place of Christina Aguilera for the upcoming season since she would, reportedly, be eight months pregnant by the time the show begins to air. After a few days of hushed negotiations, Stefani was confirmed to be rounding out the judges’ panel when she posted a picture of her hand on Instagram with a microphone and the peace sign/ “V” symbol.

During last night’s episode of the show, the people behind the show decided that there was no time like the present to start introducing the rookie judges to the large audience watching from both the taping location and from the comfort of their homes.

Stefani made her entrance by performing “Hollaback Girl” which was produced by who else, Pharrell, rocking his new hat. Pharrell then went on to perform his latest single, “Come Get it Bae” which he collaborate with Miley Cyrus on, hence the ridiculous pattern outfits the dancers were sporting.

Watch “Hollaback Girl” below.


Watch the 2014 Oscar Performances


If you were the small percentage that did not tune in to see the Oscars, then don’t worry, it was long and boring except for the parts that host Ellen DeGeneres was on-screen including making fun of people, giving out pizza and crashing Twitter with “The Worlds Most Retweeted” picture.

During the show, several artists took to the stage to perform their Oscar nominated songs. Pharrell with his Smokey the Bear hat took to the stage for the Despicable Me 2 theme and radio hit, “Happy” with a group of dancer. The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O. and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig performed “The Moon Song” from Her while U2 paid tribute to Nelson Mandela with “Ordinary Love” from Mandela. Idina Menzel got in touch with Snow Queen, Elsa to perform “Let it Go” from Frozen after John Travolta-gate.

With the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz is upon us and P!nk was asked to honor it by performing “Over the Rainbow.” Bette Midler sang “Wind Beneath My Wings” as part of the ‘In Memorium’ for all the fallen heroes of Hollywood.

All the videos can be seen below.

Watch Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco Bring in 2014


Welcome to day two of the brand new year and so far, it’s been on the quiet side. For those who missed all the performances leading up to the new year due to drunkenness or shooting off fireworks, we have a few of them right here for your viewing pleasure from two of our favorite bands, Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco.

The first video come courtesy of Fall Out Boy. For the band, 2013 had to be one of the best years to date. they announced they were off hiatus, released a new album which was a complete hit, went on a tour that sold out at most if not all the tour stops and now they’re in the process of working on a short film via their music videos from Save Rock and Roll; it’s been named the Young Blood Chronicles. They also released a short EP titled the Pax Am Days a couple of months back.

Like we said, killer year.

Watch as they perform “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up),” “Alone Together.” and “Young Volcanoes” on Dick Clark’s Rocking New Years Eve.

On another channel, we had Fall Out Boy’s former tour mates, Panic! at the Disco hanging out with Mario Lopez and others to countdown until the new year. Panic! were another band to have a good year as well. After drummer, Spencer Smith announced he was heading into rehab, things just got a lot better for the band.

They announced and released their new album, Too Young to Live, Too Rare to Die, toured with Fall Out Boy, and announced they would be heading out on tour in 2014. There was also that awesome honor that frontman, Brendon Urie got when he performed for Billy Joel this past weekend.

Watch as the band brought in the new year with performances of “Miss Jackson” and “This is Gospel.”
