March 18th, 2014
Comments Off

Against Me! is back with a new video off of their two-month-old album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues. The nearly three and a half minute visualization of “Black Me Out” is a shadowy, aggressive version of the track that tells its story through cut-out letters and gritty black and white cartoonish images.

SXSW 2014: SPIN Party at Stubb’s BBQ Featuring Against Me!, Future Islands and More

March 15th, 2014
Comments Off

There’s no party like a SPIN party, with free BBQ, breakfast and booze at perhaps one of the coolest venues in Austin: the iconic Stubb’s. Openers Radkey approached their set like a playful eight-year-old presented with a fresh can of spray paint. Just about every track was prefaced by frontman Dee Radke saying exactly what the song was about, moving his mouth from mischievous grin to hard-edged lyrics as an ouroboros of a line of folks awaiting free BBQ nodded to the beat. The band of brothers won over a lot of fans with their all-too-brief set, only to be evenly matched straight across Stubb’s by The Orwells.

SPIN Party at Stubb’s BBQ SXSW 2014 Featuring Warpaint, Against Me! and More

March 5th, 2014
Comments Off

We couldn’t have a SXSW season without the excellent yearly party thrown by SPIN at Stubb’s BBQ. For those lucky enough to attend, this is always one of the best lineups, the best in terms of space to move around and the best in terms of “holy crap” cool. This year is no different, and SPIN has corralled a who’s who of the best acts headed up by Against Me!, Cloud Nothings and Warpaint. The RSVP was temporarily opened, but then closed. We’ll keep you posted if they re-open it or any contests come up for passes.

Friday, March 14, 12 PM, Stubb’s BBQ, 801 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701 Austin, TX

Hype Hotel SXSW 2014 Artists Announced ft. London Grammar, Chromeo, Haerts

February 26th, 2014
Comments Off

Hype Hotel’s lineup for SXSW 2014 is insane in all the best ways. They’ve been keeping south by revelers happy and dancing for years now, casually bringing in some of the world’s best emerging artists alongside free Taco Bell and Tito’s all under the same roof, but their artist lineups are just getting silly good. This year features London Grammar (one of the only shows announced outside of a morning KGSR recording and a showing at the iTunes festival), Washed Out, Chromeo, perennial favorites R.A.C, Kelis, Jungle, Tokyo Police Club, Against Me!, The 1975, Wye Oak, Haerts, Chet Faker, Chloe Howl, Panama Wedding, The Colourist – I could go on for longer, but it’s probably better for you to just read on and see the full lineup for yourself instead of just hearing bands I like. Hype Hotel goes across 5 days, so we’ll be announcing individual day artist lineups as they’re announced – stay tuned!

Tuesday – Saturday, March 12th-15th @ Hype Hotel, 505 E 7th St Austin, TX 78701

Does God Bless Your Transsexual Heart?

A lot has happened for punk staples Against Me! since the release of their last record of new material, White Crosses, in 2010. Along with splitting from their first and only mainstream record label and making some large changes to their lineup, singer and lead guitarist Laura Jane Grace came out as a transgender woman, announcing the beginning of her transition. While much of the music related to her transition and identity has been performed by Grace as a solo act, Against Me! has released Transgender Dysphoria Blues, a concept album about a transgender sex worker. This record is an absolute must-buy for Against Me! fans new and old and for anyone who has ever questioned their own identity. Read more…
