Garbage are back with their first new album in nearly a decade, and the band is very happy to reconnect with its fans — but that doesn’t mean singer Shirley Manson is going to stand for violence at shows, as one concertgoer found out after getting into an altercation with a fellow attendee on Friday, May 25.
By pretty much all accounts, the musical divorce between Skid Row and Sebastian Bach in the mid ’90s worked out pretty well for everyone — the band has moved on with singer Johnny Solinger, who’s logged over a decade in the position, and Bach has pursued an eclectic solo career, while dabbling in reality TV. But there are still plenty of people who’d like to see a reunion — including Bach himself.
These days, Carrie Underwood‘s music resides firmly at the glamorous intersection between modern country and high-gloss pop. But she wasn’t always the type of woman who strolled red carpets in high-fashion gowns — in fact, as an Oklahoman teenager, she was more likely to be found wearing oversized flannel and listening to Pearl Jam.
If you caught the ‘Saturday Night Live‘ season finale last weekend, you know it ended with a high school graduation sketch that doubled as a thinly veiled sendoff/full cast dance party in honor of Kristen Wiig, who’s leaving the cast after seven years. The fun continued in an epic after party featuring musical guests the Foo Fighters, and thanks to footage uploaded by folks who were lucky enough to be there, now you can see some of what went on.
While the Afghan Whigs were kicking off their reunion tour in New York last night (May 23), a different group of ’90s rock legends commenced their own return to the stage. The Stone Roses, performing with their classic lineup for the first time in over 20 years, played what the NME called a “rapturously received comeback show” in Warrington, England.
If you were a little stunned by the news of Adam Yauch‘s death on May 4, you weren’t alone — as Yauch’s longtime Beastie Boys bandmate Mike Diamond puts it in an interview published in Rolling Stone, “He had us fooled in the most beautiful way … I believed, up to last week, that Adam was somehow coming back.”
Everything is over besides the final results on Season 11 of ‘American Idol,’ where the contest winnowed itself down to the last two performers last night (May 22). And if the judges’ remarks are any indication of the way this is going to pan out, it’s Phillip Phillips‘ season to lose — but he still got a standing ovation on last night’s episode when he performed a song called ‘Home,’ which was reminiscent of Mumford and Sons‘ sound.
The set list for the Dave Matthews Band‘s summer tour is shaping up to be a typically loose-knit affair, featuring new songs, a few surprising older songs, and even some surprising collaborations with their opening acts. Over the weekend, that last item produced an unannounced duet between Matthews and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
It’s been three long years since Green Day released a studio album, and the band has so much pent-up creative energy that it’s preparing to unleash a full-on trilogy of new LPs over the next year. The first installment, ‘¡Uno!,’ arrives in September — and the band will celebrate its release by heading down to New Orleans and headlining Voodoo Fest 2012.
