Punk rock band Rise Against goes acoustic for a pair of shows at The Theatre at Ace Hotel

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...

Man tries to board New York subway carrying large dog in tiny brown sack but it's a no go

Since it's illegal to take your dog on a subway in New York if it's not shoved into a "carrier," this man shoved his large dog into a tiny burlap sack, if that's what you can call it. But the conductor doesn't buy it, and bans the creative dog owner from boarding the train. Saw this guy arguing with an @MTA conductor about bringing his dog on the subway. Dude said the dog’s burlap sack was a bag; conductor said nope, wouldn’t let him on the train. @Gothamist @A_W_Gordon @2AvSagas #NYCSubway p...

Meet the wholesome man making Pornhub’s sexiest genitalia-free videos (SFW)

Remember the The Big Lebowski? Specifically the scene where Dude is in the house of the pornographer, Jackie Greenhorn? The pair of them sit on a sofa in a plush lounge, Greenhorn leans forward, taps his head, and tells the Dude “the brain is the biggest erogenous zone.” Is this classic scene the inspiration behind Ryan Creamer’s porn career?

WIRTW #524 (the “total disaster” edition)

Any week Rhett Miller releases new music into the world is a week worth celebrating. Earlier this week Rhett released "Total Disaster," the first song of his upcoming album, The Messenger, due out November 9. It's a brilliantly sad song about the mess one can make of one's life and how it impacts those around you. In fact, the entire album promises to be a bit on the darker side. A few months ago, on Chris Shiflett's "Walking the Floor" podcast, Rhett talked about some of the album's themes: [T...

Can You Really Get "Addicted" to Tattoos?

When celebrity piercer Brian Keith Thompson started getting tattoos in the late 1990s, his family sat him down for an intervention. "They were concerned that I was covering large portions of my body," he told POPSUGAR. Later, he was arrested, and even the jaded detectives who booked him offered words of warning. "They were like, 'Dude, what are you doing with those big tattoos? You're never going to be able to get a job. You're going to be an outcast.'" For Thompson, that was precisely the poin...

Punk band Face to Face goes acoustic with its new ‘Hold Fast’ album and tour

Normally when Face to Face frontman Trever Keith hits the stage, it’s wild. Spit and sweat are flying everywhere, fans are passionately screaming along to Keith’s vocals, moshing hard in the pit and crowd surfing, hurling their flailing bodies over the barrier. For this upcoming tour, however, things will be a bit different as the Victorville-based punk rock band has stripped down and rearranged some of its biggest hits and fan favorites that span the quartet’s 27-year career for its first acous...

The Popdose Interview: Elephant Rifle

Let me call it early: anybody who’s anybody who considers themselves a devotee of punk rock will consider Hunk, the recently announced third full-length from Reno quartet Elephant Rifle, to be one of the most anticipated records of 2018. That’s on the record, Skippy. While Party Child, the group’s debut, was great, the band really came into its own on 2015’s Ivory, which was epic and scorched Earth.
