Back and Forth

The Foo Fighters have played to massive crowds, won Grammys, received platinum albums and have even turned down an opportunity to have a song featured on “Glee.” So why record their latest album, Wasting Light, in a garage? “When you’ve been a band for this long, you start to form certain habits and you need to fall out of those habits,” bassist Nate Mendel said, calling from Seattle....

Still an audience for the classic Cars?

This started as a simple review of The Cars' new album, Move Like This, which was released on Concord Music this past Tuesday. It's the band's first studio album since 1987's Door to Door, and the first since the death of bassist/vocalist Ben Orr of pancreatic cancer in 2000.

Video Concert Review: Of Montreal at The Slowdown

One dash of David Bowie, a pinch of The Cure twisted with a peel of vaudeville - shakin', definitely not stirred. I wasn't sure what to expect from the Athens GA. electronica funk glam afrobeat musical stylings of Of Montreal after spending a day in the office youtubing them. Getting my face, ears, body and mind blasted at their show this past Friday at the Slowdown left me impressed. Armed...

<p>Not surprisingly, one of Seger’s biggest crowd reactions of the night was the reference to Omaha in his classic “Turn the Page.” </p>Concert Review: Bob Seger
