This week's music feature is on Lady Gaga's seemingly overnight rise to super-stardom. Ever wonder exactly how or why this happened? Nearly everyone agrees she's awesome. But is she really? We get to the nitty gritty.
We also take a took at the subtle differences in the metalcore genre through the bands Underoath and Between the Buried and Me. And you thought everything that ended in "-core" sounded the same...
And did you know that there are a ton of local bands you've probably never heard of? We're out to catch them all, in a series of reviews on Up On The Sun. This week we recap the highlights, lowlights, and overall trends from two months worth of shows.
