I have a lot of feelings about Drake. And now that I’ve seen him live, I have about a million more.
We’ve taken Bonnaroo’s 2012 lineup and turned it into a storytime discussion about our feelings! Join us, won’t you?
We didn’t know what to do with all of these photos and feelings, so we just put them here.
“As a long-time fan, the biggest disappointment was not the time delay but rather the realization that Lauryn Hill is a complete tosser.”
Do you like queer events and music, AND do you happen to live in the DC metropolitan area? If you leapt into the air and screamed “YES,” then check out this weekend’s Queer Music Fesival at DC’s Phase 1, featuring MEN (featuring JD Samson of Le Tigre), Hunter Valentine, and loads of other acts featuring queer performers!
Personally, I feel that protesters are a barometer for how fun something will be, and Sunday did not disappoint. So many bands! Hockey, MGMT, The National, Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, and the Temper Trap TWICE!
Trapped inside living vicariously through your fun-having, summer-loving, concert-going friends? Perfect! Insatiable and Fearless Music Aficionado Sarah is back with another dispatch from Lollapalooza, which is probably a lot more fun than whatever you’re doing right now.
Lollapalooza opened the first night with Lady Gaga, who got misunderstood at Lolla 2007 and was back to show she can really shake ‘em down, with DJ Lady Starlight. Also, The Black Keys!
Amanda Palmer plays some Radiohead hits on her ukulele and Crystal has some good feelings about it. Do you?
Sarah went to Lilith Fair in St. Louis and returned with tales of Metric and developing a serious crush on Sarah McLachlan.
This weekend, Laneia and Sarah braved the wilds of Tennessee with 80,000 other crazy hippies to enjoy the wonderful world of Bonnaroo. They were hoping to give you regular dispatches from the farm, but the Internet is stupid. So here is everything you ever wanted to know about Bonnaroo, including an epic photo gallery, all in one post!
Last month held was biggest event on the Sydney lesbian social calendar: Tegan & Sara live in concert. Were you there? Autostraddle was! We sent along Sydney-based photographer Stef Mitchell to capture some of evening’s finest moments.
Stef would’ve seen a bunch of shows on sunday, but then she had a mental breakdown instead: the cartoon recap.
Stef became a press sensation last year for @CLTranslated, the twitter account she invented to translate Courtney Love’s incoherent tweets. Needless to say, with Hole on the schedule for Friday it was bound to be an epic day — AND THEN SHE SAW SMOKEY ROBINSON TOO. Also; Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings & Darker My Love.
Crystal reports from the front row of Myspace’s Secret Placebo Show. When Defamer Australia offers you tickets to see a show you couldn’t get tickets to, you say yes. Loudly.
Aussie photographer and writer Stef Mitchell brings us a review and photos of the Cold War Kids’ sold out concert at the Williamsburg Music Hall.
Dr. Gaga – or – How I learned to stop worrying and love Lady Gaga, other people, and dancing.
Britney Spears brings her Circus to Australia and gets crucified by the media for noticing what we’ve known forevs: the girl lip syncs. But how was the show? If you like flashes of teenaged man-abs, ballads sung sweetly on swings and caged pole-dancing – and who doesn’t? – join us on our journey into the Circus with the Autostraddle Concert Review.
Canadian rockers Metric finally bring their powerful, crowd-pleasing synth rock to Australia. Indie heart-throb Emily Haines wins over a hardcore Melbourne crowd with smoking hotness and idiosyncratic dance moves, requests a spliff and receives candy instead. Audiostraddle’s contributing writer Isabelle takes us there.
Photographer Stef Mitchell & Autostraddle Deputy Music Editor/Australian Specialist Crystal report from the trenches of the Outback’s Outbreak of Pink Fever. Lady Gaga Who? “Even the most passionate Pink fans couldn’t have predicted that this feisty pop star was capable of selling out a whooping 58 stadium shows in a country with only 21 million […]
