This Week: Madonna Channels Picasso, Ghostface Burns Beards, and Backstreet Boys Murder Cinema

Sometimes, creative decisions that seem great within someone's mind don't always translate well when they're thrust upon the rest of the world. This week, it's one probable artistic disaster after another: James Franco writing about Lana Del Rey, Backstreet Boys…

I Don't Wanna Miss a Sing

It has been said that love bites, love bleeds, love begs, love pleads and... it's what I need. Oh yeah, it's been said by far greater geniuses than ours. Def Leppard, Warrant, Poison, Cinderella, Bon Jovi, Heart, Journey, and…

Jello Shots, Cut-Off T-Shirts, and Rushing the Stage: What Happens When 89 Cougars Go To a Def Leppard Concert in Concord

By ELIZABETH GARONE Full disclosure. Growing up in the '80s, I was not a big Def Leppard fan and never even considered going to one of their concerts. But two-and-a-half decades later came the irresistible bait: the ticket plus a…

Background Music Makes Daily Life Worse, Not Better

Is background music necessary? Ever? My favorite sound in the world is the white noise the city makes outside my open window. I hear distant traffic; the arrivals and departures of streetcars; all manner of beeps; the occasional (and always…

Lose the Groupies: Glitter Wizard Explains How to Be a Rock God on a Budget

As we all know, rock gods are a vital piece of the world's cultural fabric. Think of how much duller Earth would be if Iggy Pop hadn't developed a lust for life, David Lee Roth had never jumped, and Def…

Bouncer: Christmas Dance of the Sourpuss Fairy

Not every day can be a dance number from Glee. Even happy-go-lucky lil' scamps like myself can wake up on the wrong side of the bed. When I arose on a recent day, the first thing I pictured was myself…

Def Leppard, Your Cartoon Pals

Last month Def Leppard, arguably the biggest band in the world (in the summer of 1988), made an announcement which set the mind reeling. They're developing a cartoon that will depict the pop metal band in "a fictional, adventurous setting."…

Stayin' Alive

Screaming faces of non-humans and unexpected puffy linings show up a lot in John Dwyer's paintings and drawings. Amorphously Bigfoot-like figures are another Dwyer motif. The local musician has been in several popular experimento/indie/garage-type bands, including the Coachwhips and Pink…

Hear This

Any self-respecting, semi-intelligent person would be ludicrous to admit he likes Andrew W.K. Clearly the party-loving rocker is made from the same amorphous stuff that causes frat boys to chug, moon, hit, haze, pledge, cheat, and pass out. If you…
