Without doubt, probably the greatest live show I’ve ever seen was Echo & The Bunnymen at the Metro in Chicago. *  Much to my excitement, they will be heading out on tour again this summer with the Violent Femmes for a co-headlining North American tour.  This 11 city tour will kick off July 12 in San Antonio, TX and will...

Passion Pit Announces 2018 ‘Tremendous Sea of Love’ Tour

Jimmy Chamberlin and Billy Corgan Together Again!

OMGOMGOMGOMG, this is the BIGGEST 90’s alt. rock news I could possibly share.  Previously I have mocked that current Smashing Pumpkins is more like Billy Corgan and band, but…. now something incredible has happened.  Jimmy Chamberlin, SP’s original drummer, will be coming back.  Hooray!  Chamberlin will be hitting the road with Cogan and Marilyn Manson for their End Times Tour. ...

Smashing Pumpkins Unplugged Tour!

I would feel it would be a major disservice, mostly to myself as a 90’s alt. rock lover, if this solo tour went unmentioned.  I LOVE 90’s alt. rock.  If you think of it, there are generally three bands that come to mind; Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins.  Well….The Smashing Pumpkins :: Billy Corgan and new band ::cough:: just...

Holiday Music Show Round Up

If you can believe it, the holidays are nearly upon us.  For some, it means egg nog, family feuds, too much food and manic shopping excursions.  For many others, it’s an opportunity to take it some good music.  So many cities are hosting big concert events featuring popular performers.  It’s usually a local popular radio station hosting the events.  Below...
