    The Monumentour was an apt name for bringing together pop-punk behemoths Paramore and Fall Out Boy for a mega-co-headlining concert. The veteran bands, both more than 10 years old, showed off their greatest hits for an audience who had mostly grown up with them at Friday's Ak-Chin Pavilion show. Co ... More >>

    Fall Out Boy Returns to Tempe Having Saved Rock and Roll, Themselves

    Fall Out Boy is to blame for a lot of what was bad about the middle of the last decade: The broad acceptance of 19-word song titles; males wearing the jeans that inspired Kanye West to rap, "They just buy tight jeans 'til they nuts hang all out, boy"; even the continuous presence of Ashlee Simpson, ...

    I Saw Fall Out Boy Live Right Before They Got Huge

    I saw Fall Out Boy right before they got super popular and seemingly unavoidable--the last time they played the Marquee Theatre for an intentionally Intimate show.

    Fall Out Boy Returns to "Save Rock and Roll," But Is It Too Late?

    Intrinzik and lululemon to Bring "Yoga Rave" to Phoenix

    Admit it, you saw the words "yoga" and "rave" and thought they were two mutually exclusive propositions.
