    Splitting Hairs - Comb to my window

    Do hairstyles influence musical styles? They do if you're Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge, whose various 'dos (and don'ts, in the case of her late '80s mullet) mirror her musical phases. Year of the Spiky Red Mullet (1988)...

    Hog Wylde - Close your eyes and think of metal

    If you asked Black Label Society guitarist/singer Zakk Wylde if he were a beer, what kind would he be, he'd probably heroically spout out the names of some hearty stout or high-octane Indian Pale Ale. Sadly, as evidenced on Black Label Society: The E...

    Pandora's Boss - Meet the guy behind the Web site that could be the MySpace.com of music

    Most casual music fans have that one person in their life they turn to before they buy new music, a guru who keeps up with the trends, reads the mags, goes to the shows, surfs the 'Net, and has taste that aligns with theirs. It could be a friend, a f...

    Authority Solo - Conviction is arresting

    It's not a new phenomenon, but lately the perceptions of what punk rock is and is not have irritated the hell out of me. Do three chords, a faux-hawk, and a 14-year-old's snotty voice make a band punk rock? Is there a formula? Does it have to be loud...

    Asylum Street Spankers - You can't spell "caravan" without "a van"

    Had they been around in the 1800s, Austin-based band Asylum Street Spankers would have been traveling the country in a caravan like a giant band of Gypsies, unloading a plethora of instruments drums, guitars, standup bass, fiddles, washboards, harm...

    The Mars Volta - Red-hot planet

    Maybe it was his non-fro or lack of a hyphenated name, but Jon Theodore, longtime drummer for Latin prog rock act The Mars Volta, has left the band. Now, the earthy surnamed and mop-topped shadows of singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala, guitarist Omar Rodrig...

    HeadSpace - Put yours in a better one

    Sunday afternoons are meant to be spent maxing and relaxing, instead of stressing out about returning to your hellish job for another week of rat-race-style torture. So it's a good thing that Counter Culture Cafe, 2330 East McDowell Road, has its wee...

    Gary Numan - It's the only way to live

    If Gary Numan had to be remembered as a one-hit wonder, well, at least he gets to be remembered as the one who gave the world "Cars," a paranoid portrait in icy detachment that finds him alone in his car and enjoying it not because he's doing somethi...

    Gorilla Biscuits - Flaky and hot

    If every dark cloud has a silver lining, then the bright side of the imminent closure of legendary NYC club CBGB is chrome-studded rather than silver. When renowned and long-defunct straight-edge pioneers Gorilla Biscuits threw a one-off reunion to t...

    Those Damned Devil Bands - Quayle eggs

    Hello, Dan Quayle here. As the 44th Vice President of the United States of America, I all but coined the phrase "family values" back in 1992, when I famously criticized Murphy Brown for having a child out of wedlock. Sure, it was a fictional characte...

    Growth Spurt - If they say so

    Jazz Hands - The Energy Trio is equal parts Coltrane and Cobain

    On a quiet stretch of Old Litchfield Road in Litchfield Park, a jazz group called the Energy Trio is warming up at Park Wines, an unassuming wine bar that usually features straight-ahead, traditional jazz. But these band members look about as muc...

    The Clientele - Broken English

    Remarkably lovely U.K. trio The Clientele, whose sound primarily falls somewhere between the bright psych-pop of late-'60s Britain and the lush jangle-chime of L.A.'s '80s Paisley Underground scene, pulls off the rare, swell trick of reminding you of...

    DeVotchKa - Those fancy little gourmet jams

    A Change of Pace - Prepare the Masses (Immortal Records)

    Back when rock was a real arena monster, fans used to hold up lighters at rock shows. At shows by local pop punk/hard rock band A Change of Pace, fans hold up their illuminated cell phones. That gesture's a great metaphor for ACoP's music it's an o...
