double dagger are a post-punk trio from Baltimore, Maryland composed of only drums, vocals, and a very loud bass guitar which fills the space a guitar would normally take. Vocalist Nolen Strals and bassist Bruce Willen also comprise the graphic design team Post Typography, which has done work for some very high profile clients, including the New York Times. Hence, Double Dagger made a habit of referring to their style of post-hardcore as "graphicdesigncore" early in their career.

Ah holy-jesus would you look at the latest from nintendo. The 3ds looks totally amazing and whats more amazing is that Nintendo have eliminated having to wear poxie 3d glasses. I really like the fact of 3D_television but I don't see meself going home and watching Emmerdale while wearing stupid glasses, actually I don't think I actually need to see Seth_Armstrongs tash in 3D for that matter.
Seen as myself and Molly are heading to California next week on an extremely over due holiday I thought it fitting to hear Dead_Kennedys "california uber alles". Dead Kennedys were an American punk rock band, formed in San Francisco, California in 1978. Pioneers of hardcore during the 1980s, the band gained a large underground following in the international punk music scene.
Yes Fucking Yes, Rock Out With The Cock Out, It's wavves. Singer Nathan Williams experienced public breakdown as the band was unable to complete their set at the 2009 Barcelona Primavera Sound Festival. Williams, who admitted he'd taken a cocktail of ecstasy and Valium, fought with drummer Ryan Ulsh and insulted the Spanish crowd, who then pelted him with bottles and a shoe. Apologizing for their performance, Williams admitted the next day that he was addicted to alcohol. As a result, the band canceled the remainder of their European tour. Zach Hill, for the interim, from Hellareplaced Ryan Ulsh as the drummer for Wavves. Two members formerly of the late Jay Reatard's band, Billy Hayes (Drums) and Stephen Pope (Bass), joined Wavves in November 2009.

south street seaport is usually a nice type of place, The start of the MS walk, shopping mall, old boats, board walk etc.. all was good until a free concert by Drake was announced. I dont know who Drake is and I dont care. Turns out it was supposed to be 10.000 people max and 20.000 showed up and next thing Drake the marter cancelled and all hell broke loose. The video speaks for itself...scumbags.. Drake was quoted " I am humbled at the turn out I got" not...sorry about the riots...asshole !!

Broken Social Scene is a Canadian indie rock band, a musical collective including as few as six and as many as nineteen members, formed in 1999 by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. All of its members currently play in various other groups and solo projects, mainly based around the city ofToronto. The band refuses the label "supergroup," based on size or the ubiquity of their members, claiming that in the indie scene everyone is involved in more than one project. The group's sound could be considered a combination of all of its members' respective musical projects, and is occasionally considered baroque pop. It is characterized by a very large number of sounds, grand orchestrations featuring guitars, horns, woodwinds, and violins, unusual song structures, and an experimental, and sometimes chaotic production style from David Newfeld, who produced the second and third albums.

Robert Muraine - So You Think You Can Dance... This is STUPID HOT!
For some reason I can't get the thought of my parents out of my mind when I here this song by peter sarstedt.. Where_Do_You_Go_To_(My_Lovely) reached the top chart position in 14 countries and was a minor hit in the U.S. Hey Mammy and Daddy is there a time when you listened to this song when I was small that would have lodged it in my brain ?

This tune by deerhunter is one of those songs I would love to be listening to at a music festival in the summer, ah heaven.deerhunter began in 2001 with the ambition of fusing the lulling hypnotic states induced by ambient and minimalist music with the klang and propulsion of garage rock. The band has weathered chaotic line-up changes, the death of a member, and much discouragement. Their live performances almost always leave audiences polarized, and have been referred to by Karen O of the yeah yeah yeah's in NME as bordering on "a religious experience." They are based in Atlanta.
