The Beastie Boys released a slew of amazing videos over the years, but perhaps none more memorable than the one for ‘Sabotage,’ the iconic cops-and-criminals clip for the first single off their 1994 album, ‘Ill Communication.’ Now, in the latest tribute to B-Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch, who passed away earlier this month, a Portland-based filmmaker has reenacted the video with an absolutely adorable twist — he cast his two young boys and their nephew to fill in for Yauch, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Mike “Mike D” Diamond.
The Black Keys have announced more 2012 U.S. tour dates that will bring them back out on the roads of America in October. The brief West Coast trek in support of their latest album, last year’s ‘El Camino,’ kicks off on Oct. 1 in Fresno, Calif., and currently is scheduled through an Oct. 10 gig in Las Cruces, N.M., with Canadian duo Tegan and Sara slated to open all stops.
A five-part radio special has been developed in conjunction with Jack Johnson‘s latest album, ’Jack Johnson and Friends — Best of Kokua Festival,’ which dropped last month and document’s the environmentally conscious singer-songwriter’s long-running Kokua Festival. The special features music from the album and snippets of interviews from a handful of musical guests featured on the disc, including G. Love, Taj Mahal, Zach Gill, Will Dog of Ozomatli — and, of course, Johnson himself.
Tom Gabel of the Florida-based punk band Against Me! has come out as transgender and plans to begin living as a woman with the name Laura Jane Grace, the singer reveals in the new issue of Rolling Stone. Gabel will soon begin the transformation process by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments, and also reportedly is considering gender reassigment surgery.
Tributes have been pouring in from around the globe following Friday’s (May 4) death of Beastie BoyAdam “MCA” Yauch, and bandmate Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz has been extremely moved by all of them. In an entry on the Beastie Boys’ blog posted Sunday night, Horovitz took time to show his appreciation to his friends and family during his time of mourning and thank everybody for all the respect shown to Yauch following the sad news of his passing after a three-year battle with cancer.
Everybody knows that Beastie BoyAdam Yauch succumbed to cancer on Friday (May 4), but fewer seem to know exactly what he was up against. The rapper’s three-year battle began in 2009 with a rare diagnosis: he had malignant tumors in the parotid gland, one of the salivary glands near the jaw and the ear, that had spread to the nearby lymph node. Not the best news, but he remained hopeful.
They can’t, they don’t and they won’t stop — and then they did stop.
Nobody can fill the extra-large Adidas sneakers favored by the Beastie Boys, but the Roots, Kid Rock and Travie McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes nobly did their best last month when the B-Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Adam “MCA” Yauch called in sick at the 11th hour — Yauch’s mom later revealed he was admitted into the hospital that very night as he continued to battle cancer, a battle that sadly ended Friday (May 4) when Yauch passed away at the age of 47.
The tributes keep rolling in for Adam “MCA” Yauch. Friday night’s (May 4) Red Hot Chili Peppers concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., was dedicated by the band to the late, great Beastie Boy, who passed away earlier that day after a three-year battle with cancer — and, as reported by Billboard, honored him in the most poignant of ways.
Thom Yorke hit the decks with longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Goodrich in Los Angeles on Friday night (April 27) with a surprise for revelers, turning in a DJ set that included several previously unheard songs by his much-hyped Atoms for Peace supergroup. The Radiohead singer was spinning as part of Transmission LA: AV Club, the music and visual arts series at L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art that’s being curated by Beastie Boy Mike D.
Smashing Pumpkins fans will have to wait until June 18 for the release of ‘Oceania,’ the band’s first album since 1997′s ‘Zeitgeist,’ but more details are rolling out in advance of the big day. On Friday (April 28), the band unveiled the disc’s front cover artwork and complete track listing.
That’s right, if you caught your favorite Coachella 2012 bands last weekend on the YouTube live stream and were hoping for a deja vu experience for weekend two, we have bad news for you — there is no Coachella 2012 second weekend live stream on YouTube. What, do they expect us to live vicariously through our Indio-based friends solely by following them on Twitter? It’s just not right!
Radiohead turned in a sprawling, nearly two-hour-long headlining set at Coachella 2012 on Saturday night (April 14), putting an exclamation point on an impressive second day of festival performances. Opening with the atmospheric ‘Bloom,’ the lead track off last year’s ”The King of Limbs,’ the band tore through a 20-song set that was heavy on ‘Limbs’ cuts but reached all the way back to 1997′s ‘OK Computer,’ represented here with a handful of tunes including demonic disco number ‘Idioteque’ and the punchy, prog-ish ‘Paranoid Android,’ the night’s final number.
