Bobby Brown's Comeback, Silversun Pickups, Mayhem Festival, and More in This Week's Issue

This week's music feature is on Bobby Brown's "comeback" with the Heads of State show. This is after he's had time to reflect on his many years of substance and alleged spousal abuse. In the end, the man fancies himself an entertainer. But just how compelling is he these days?

We play a game with Silversun Pickups' frontman Brian Aubert where he finishes our sentences, and we take a look at the acts on the Mayhem Festival.

We've also got show previews for Robert Plant, The Gaslight Anthem, Thrice, Jeremy Kittel Band, and Pinback.
