With Cassadee Pope, The Voice Has Anointed a True Star

Posted By on Wed, Dec 19, 2012 at 8:19 AM


As it's done all season, The Voice dragged out its results show to a degree that was at best arduous and at worst excruciating. So, after two hours of performances from bus-loads of people -- including Rihanna (who had actual clothes on, miraculously), Smokey Robinson, Kelly Clarkson, The Killers, Peter Frampton, Bruno Mars, Avril Lavigne (bleugh), and about a billion of this season's contestants (including a few we can't even remember) -- the winner was announced: Cassadee Pope.

The Voice Semi-Finals Recap: Team Blake For The Win! (Again)

Posted By on Tue, Dec 11, 2012 at 3:00 AM


Alright, kids. The end is in sight. All of Christina Aguilera's and Adam Levine's team members have been eliminated at this point, so everything comes down to the picks of either Blake Shelton or Cee-Lo Green. We like Team Blake: Scottish rocker Terry McDermott and ex-Hey Monday vocalist Cassadee Pope (who frankly should win this entire thing based solely on her tearjerking cover of Miranda Lambert's "Over You" a couple of weeks back). Of course, if the soulful boring winners from the first two seasons are anything to go on, Team Cee-Lo is more likely to take the gold, for he has two soul guys. And, apparently, when it comes to The Voice, America really likes voting for soul guys.

Seth Bogart -- or Hunx, as he is better known when fronting homosexually themed garage group Hunx and His Punx -- isn't shy about his interests. His lyrics and stage

persona are charged with flippant sexuality, beauty-industry clichés and girl-group style

relationship melodrama. But, the notorious Bay Area group has been relatively inactive lately. Bogart is instead busily launching a record label called Wacky Wacko and premiering a video series called Hollywood Nailz on the Internet. We caught up with him to discuss the new projects, and Bogart was characteristically forthcoming regarding details of both.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
