Ani DiFranco describes writing new memoir as ‘terrifying’

Singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco doesn’t seem like the kind of person who scares easily, and it’s not like she hasn’t written scores of songs in her three decades in music, but to hear her tell it there was just something … intimidating about sitting down to write “No Walls and the Recurring Dream,” her just-published memoir. “I’ve been accessing my life experience a lot in my songs obviously for many decades,” DiFranco said recently by phone from New Orleans, her home in recent years after growin...

The majority of last year, Garbage was out on tour celebrating the...

How the Rapture came to Just Like Heaven: The return of Luke Jenner after walking away from stardom

Luke Jenner found a good measure of fame and a nice chunk of fortune as the singer-guitarist in the Rapture. He met personal heroes, big stars like David Bowie and Robert Smith of the Cure. And then he turned his back on all that. It was 2012, and the Rapture was humming along, three albums into its career when Jenner walked away, although tiptoed might be the better word given how quietly the break-up of the band occurred, no official acknowledgment coming until two years later. Jenner, who gre...

When the members of Chicago-based punk rock band Rise Against were tasked with hunkering down in the studio last year and creating just a couple of acoustic versions of songs off their latest album, “Wolves,” it turned into a full-on deep dive into the band’s eight album catalog. The quartet emerged from the 12-day studio session having come up with and recorded alternative renditions of 10 of their songs. “The record started with some very humble intentions,” Rise Against vocalist-guitarist Tim...

Blackpink brought K-pop to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Friday, April 12, and while the Sahara tent wasn’t as over-capacity as it has been in the past, it was a full house and a whole lot of lighthearted fun.
