Photos: The Drums at the Fillmore
The Drums (photo: Robert Alleyne) Last Friday night saw a show at the Fillmore that can be described as pandemonium in the best way possible: New York rock band The Drums played all the hits while people ran on the stage to kiss, dance with, or hug lead singer Jonathan Pierce. They were joined by Stef Chura and Soccer Mommy. Check out the gallery below by Robert Alleyne of all bands from the night.
The Drums playing Brick and Mortar for Outside Lands night show
Music festivals are endurance tests. Standing, cheering, singing and drinking for hours on end can take a toll on one’s body. But, they only come around once a year (well, kind of), so it’s best to revel in all they have to offer. Friday’s Outside Lands schedule is a beauty — there are more than enough intriguing acts to satiate the average festival-goer from noon until close. However, when suspender-rock kings Mumford and Sons (or EDM heavyweight Amon Tobin, depending on your fancy) depart the stage at 10 p.m., that doesn’t mean the night has to end. The Drums — [...]

Words by: Joseph Hayes Photos by: Reid Williams March 1, Sunday night, 10:15 p.m. in San Francisco, sheets of rain, the city's inhabitants mope around between laundromats and cafes, peaking out from a video storefront awning, eating a soggy vegetarian burrito, contemplating sleep or catching up on episodes of Mad Men or the Wire in the hopes of having something to offer at the water cooler tomorrow, and...simultaneously... Like a jet ski in a kiddie pool, Les Savy Fav's Tim Harrington (aka the Homer Simpson of Indie rock) is parting through the sardine can crowd of sticky hipsters at Mezzanine, [...]
Noise Pop: Sunday Preview!
It will be sad to see Noise Pop end, but they will indeed go out with a bang. Two shows punctuate Sunday's Noise Pop festival. At 1pm, No Age (LA) will headline a show at Bottom of the Hill with White Circle Crime Club (Belgium), Infinite Body (LA) and Veil Veil Vanish. No Age plays a raucous and infecting type of power-punk that's quite naturally produced in LA. If you want education about the more esoteric aspects of punk, check out this show, as they may soon be the master's. $12. No Age - "Teen Creeps" The last [...]
