    Niki at Nite: Exploring the depths of "fan-archy" with Roller Derby superfans

    "Seriously, it's like soft porn on wheels!" That is how my friend Joker describes roller derby to me before a recent AZ Derby Dames doubleheader bout at Castle Mega Sports. It's the first live roller derby event I've attended, and Joker -- so-name...

    Yellowcard

    Florida quintet Yellowcard broke big on 2003's Ocean Avenue. Songs like "Way Away" and "Only One" kept the band on the radio, in video games, and on awards-show stages for more than a year. You couldn't escape Yellowcard. The group recorded a follow-...

    Try as you might, there's no knocking Jay-Z's hustle. So what if he's no longer president of Def Jam? So what if he's mostly irrelevant? So what if there are more literate, talented, and entertaining rappers dropping science out there? Unfading swagg...

    Noise is a relative concept -- for many, it is what interferes with what we'd prefer to hear. For others, noise is a means to an end, a catharsis, or an inverse of what's known as "harmony." The Who, Velvet Underground, and the Beatles pioneered the ...

    Local band Via Maris reach back to a better year with The Bicentennial

    Ask anyone alive during our country's 200th birthday in 1976, and they'll tell you it was still the Me Decade, but filtered through Eisenhower eyes, since America had less past to reprocess. On TV, there was plenty of unapologetic jiggle alongside th...

    The Sword brings you metal without clich on Gods of the Earth

    Wait, is this a joke? That's an understandable reaction when encountering the clobbering metal riffs of The Sword, and it's not the only time in recent years a new hard rock/metal act has elicited such a response. In the semi-proud tradition of Andre...
