Green Day have released a new video for a song off their latest album ¡Tre! The “X-Kid” video reminds us of a simpler, analog time free of streaming services, iTunes downloads, and YouTube videos. There is not much to see in this video. Someone just presses play on a cassette tape and lets it play.

Let it roll yourself, and just listen to the music.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse hit the road in their new video for “Twisted Road,” off of their upcoming album, Psychedelic Pill. Old buses, trucks, and RVs are featured in the video; but the real love is definitely for Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and the Grateful Dead. Old footage of the musicians are peppered throughout the video, which adds a wonderful sense of nostalgia and admiration.

Terrapin Crossroads has confirmed their next set of rambles with Phil Lesh and Friends. June 15-17, Phil Lesh will perform with Jackie GreeneRob BarracoMark KaranJon Graboff and Tony Leone. Tickets are on sale now at http://terrapincrossroads.frontgatetickets.com.

Until the new rambles, enjoy this whole show from Terrapin Crossroads from March 20th:

It’s probably no secret that one of my favorite bands is NOFX. I try to get to their shows whenever they are playing in the San Francisco Bay Area. Back in January, I got to go see them for their two night run at the Fillmore with Old Man Markley, No Use For A Name, and Lagwagon. It was a great two nights, but the second night was probably the crazier of the two. On the second night, there was an incident now known as “Melvingate.”

Halfway thorough “I’m Telling TimEric Melvin was tackled by a drunk fan who made a very quick retreat into the crowd. Melvin soon followed with a jump after the guy. The greatest thing was that I just happened to catch it all on video. In fact, I caught the whole show on video. Instead of telling you all about it, why don’t you just come with me in my time machine back to the show!

You can check out the whole show at the following link:

or you can check out any of the individual videos from the show below.

Now, let’s go to Punk Rock show, kids!!

Of course, the show starts off with regular banter, but Hefe also gets a demo CD from a guy in the crowd who was there both nights. A guy they named, Gallagher, because he looked similar to the comedian.
Right into “60%,” Fat Mike is hit directly in the fact with a drink. Not cool, and the band asks for the crowd to turn in the culprit for $100. The show had a lot of energy and it was hard to stand still so the shot is pretty shaky.

Running through their set with “Murder The Government,” “I’m Telling Tim,” and “It’s My Job To Keep Punk Rock Elite.” Everything seemed to be going well until Eric Melvin gets tackled on stage at the beginning of “I’m Telling Tim.” He gets up and stage dives after the guy into the crowd where he is joined by Fat Mike and some of the Fat crew.

“Leaving Jesusland.”

“Totally Fucked.”

Playing “black music played by whites and Mexicans,” or “Eat The Meek.”

“Seeing Double At The Triple Rock.”

About 1/3 done with their set. Although they state that this show is definitely in their top 800 played, they do screw up the start to “Mattersville.”

“Fuck The Kids Revisited” and “Linoleum,” and you get to find out what snowballing is if you did not already know!

A guy gets up on stage and tries to take pictures, but is very quickly rushed off during “Wore Out The Soles Of My Party Boots.”

“The Moron Brothers.” Appropriately enough, the guy in front decides to be an ass and give people the bird.

Here, they change the name of the song a little from “Arming The Proletariat With Potato Guns” to “Arming Puerto Ricans With Potato Guns.”

“Reeko.”

“Blasphemy (The Victimless Crime).” They also call out a guy in the crowd, calling him Dave Mustaine.

Here, they screw up the start of “The Malachi Crunch,” but then they nail it in true NOFX style.

Finishing up their set with “The Separation Of Church And Skate.”

Starting their encore with “Doornails.” They also unveil their second night banner!

“Stickin’ In My Eye.”

“Don’t Call Me White.”

Continuing through their encore with “I Wanna Be An Alcoholic” and “Fuck The Kids.”

And, finishing up with show with “Kill All The White Man.”

Hope you enjoyed the show!!

I kept seeing this video posted around Facebook and finally got curious enough to click on it. Glad I did! Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers are on tour right now and it seems they have come up with a pretty simple, but innovative idea to promote themselves while on the road. They have periodically been recording covers of tunes from other artists while they are driving in their van and they have been posting them around the internet as their “Van Sessions.” Check out this video of them covering Hall & Oates‘, “I Can’t Go For That.” For this and other videos by Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers check out their YouTube channel, here. Good stuff!

As everyone already knows, I am into music. I do like other things though, and one of these things is biking. Every year around Spring I start going through YouTube to watch all the new biking videos to get me psyched for the biking season. Sometimes I happen to come across some pretty good music in these videos too. For instance, in this video I got hooked on Band of Horses‘, “The Funeral.”

Filmed in and around Edinburgh, Scotland by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill features some the best riding I’ve ever seen. There’s some awesome riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a bike.

Enjoy the music and the riding!

Jake Shimabukuro will tour the United States in 2011/2012, and with 15 dates in California we’d make jokes about him getting his sun in, but the man’s from Hawaii so we think he’s got us beat.

For the curious, Jake’s ukelele talents went viral when his cover of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” went viral on YouTube. Watch it here:

Worst Grammy Performances Ever

The Grammys wouldn’t be the Grammys without the pressure to perform, and sometimes artists just can’t make the cut. Since we’ve already shown you the best Grammys performances ever, we couldn’t leave the juicy, or in the case of Pink, wet, performances that made everyone else look AMAZING. Without further adieu, the worst performances available to those that dare on Youtube.

Outkast: “Hey Ya”


“Hey Ya” was 2004′s summer ubiquitous hit. You couldn’t escape it, and why would you want to? This was such a terrible let down. The strange, albeit slightly racist costumes, and poor singing made this a forgettable (hopefully) performance that stands as an example of what NOT to do.

Pink: “Glitter In The Air”

After this performance, which truly lived up the spectacle of the Grammys, critics joked that the song title should have been changed to “Water On Your Face.” Take a look…

Best Touring Band EVER!!

Posted: October 19, 2011 in Videos
Tags: , , , , ,

Ok, I came across this video a little while ago and have been wanting to share it since it pretty much leaves me speechless everytime I watch it. These guys have put together the most crazy touring vehicle I have ever seen. I have no idea where this is really, other than the fact that the video I originally found on LiveLeak.com is listed as coming from Russia. So, if you know anything about these guys please let me know. Otherwise, enjoy!!

Do you all remember this hideous piece of crap?

How many thought it was terrible and made fun of Rebecca Black for this video? Well, you are not alone because there were a lot of kids at her school who thought the same thing, and they let her know it. According to Rebecca,

“When I walk by [bullies will] start singing ‘Friday’ in a really nasally voice,” [said Black.] “Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?’”

Being 13 can be hard, and this didn’t make it any easier. So, Rebecca left her school and is now being taught at home by her mother. Her mom now says that she is relieved because Rebecca can now focus on her career. Well, she is going to need a lot of time to work on her career with crap like her new turd, ‘My Moment’:
