#WCW: Taylor Momsen

-Taylor Momsen- Twitter: @taylormomsen Instagram: taylormomsen Known for: Formerly – being a child actress (she was Cindy Lou Who in The Grinch!) and starring on Gossip Girl. Now – being a kickass rocker chick, singing lead in the Pretty Reckless. -If you’re into badass rock n’ roll ladies, look no further than Taylor Momsen. The child actress who once played Cindy Lou Who in Jim Carrey’s Grinch movie is now a rocker chick who sports plenty of eyeliner and takes no prisoners. In the spirit of the holidays, we just had to showcase a gorgeous lady withRead More
JP and Sam of Cash Cash stand up and immediately Dave of Tritonal sits down. Let me refresh your memory- I’m in the “green room” (nook under the stairs) of the Bluebird Theater in Denver just before seeing Tritonal and Cash Cash play back to back on the Colorado leg of their “Untouchable” tour. Having finished up chatting with Cash Cash, it’s time for me to talk to Tritonal. It’s my first attempt at consecutive interviews and I’m hoping I can keep my composure as well as my questions interesting. MadeRead More
The green room at the Bluebird Theater in Denver is not so much a room as it is a little nook under the stairs that lead down from the stage. There’s a small couch wedged directly under the stairs and a few chairs, but little room to move when you add in two DJ groups, their crew and tour manager. So when I sit down on the edge of the couch to speak with Cash Cash’s JP Mahklouf and Sam Frisch, I’m maybe, at most, four feet from either ofRead More

Artist Insider: Infected Mushroom

I was recently fortunate enough to be able to sit down with Erez Eisen of legendary Israeli psychedelic/electronic act Infected Mushroom at the Gothic Theater in Denver, CO. Erez comprises one half of the core of Infected Mushroom, along with Amit Duvdevani. The two have been performing together for almost 20 years, making new and entrancing music. Both Erez and Amit had a deep love for music at a very young age. Erez is classically trained on the organ while Amit grew up playing the piano. As the two grew older, their loveRead More

#WCW: Selena Gomez

-Selena Gomez- Instagram: selenagomez Twitter: @selenagomez Known for: Let’s be honest – you already know her. – Okay, so this week we’re going with an obvious name, but it’s still high time we show our appreciation for the gorgeous goddess named Selena. Plus, now that she’s not dating the Biebs, we can all respect her a little more. The older Selena gets, the more beautiful she gets, and the more we love her. Maybe some of that has to do with her incredibly sexy new album cover (first picture below),Read More
At 19 years of age, most of us have no idea what we want to do for our weekend, let alone a career. And virtually none of us are traveling the world performing music. In the ever-populating suburb of Temecula, CA, lives a teenager who is already turning these ambitions into reality. Welcome to the life of Hunter Pea. The talented guitarist might be young, but he has the musical IQ of a person twice his age, and a drive for success that some people never attain. Since his early days of youth,Read More
The Hi-Dive in Denver, Colorado is quiet as the opening band packs up their own equipment and exits the stage. A quiet electricity hangs in the air; the sounds of clanking classes and friendly conversation replacing the music that was just being played. In the small, standing-room-only venue, you won’t find any top-40 artists or teenaged fanboys and girls waiting around to meet their idols.The Hi-Dive is a bar, and half of the patrons are just there to drink a few beers and check out whatever artists happen to be performingRead More

#WCW: Alexis Krauss

-Alexis Krauss- Instagram: kraussingaround Known for: Being the lead singer of New York indie-pop band Sleigh Bells. -Maybe I just have a weak spot for girls with musical talent, but Alexis Krauss is this week’s featured lady, due to her great looks and great music alike. An indie songstress, Krauss is one half of the indie-electropop duo Sleigh Bells, who have earned great critical acclaim with their first two albums. It certainly doesn’t hurt the band’s reputation to have a girl like Alexis Krauss as the face of the project.    Read More

This former Nickelodeon star has expanded to the realms of music and more grown up television acting. Victoria is set to star in the new MTV series Eye Candy, which debuts this January. Whether the show will be any good is a moot point – I’m sure plenty of peopleRead More

Artist Insider: Camila Grey of Uh Huh Her

I decided months ago that it was appropriate and ethical to be in my underwear during a phone interview for a potential job. But here I was faced with a new question of ethical dilemmatude: Is it acceptable to conduct a phone interview in my underwear? In the name of all things great and pantless, I decided Yes.  Always and of course.  Basically, it is encouraged. Camila Grey, lead singer and guitarist of Uh Huh Her had a smokey, easy voice that probably would have gotten me out of myRead More
In the world of professional sports, a dislocated knee could mean the end of a career.  For a certain Los Angeles-based electropop quartet, however, it was only the beginning.  “It’s been a trip,” muses frontman Ryan Daly.  “We never thought a year ago that things would have blown up so quickly.” The Slidebar in downtown Fullerton is packed, but somehow I’m able to hear him over the roar.  The KROQ Locals Only Show is already in full-swing, but we still have a few solid hours before Parade of Lights takesRead More
