Coachella 2019: Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, and Weezer cap off Saturday in the desert

While Tame Impala technically headlined the main stage at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Saturday – and played a strong and enjoyable set – two other acts, one old, one new, captured most of the conversation as the second day of the festival wound down. Weezer, who play festival sets around their native Southern California so often they almost feel like the region’s house band, turned in one of its strongest sets in recent memory, thanks partly to the cross-pollination its recent al...

Spanish Flyer: A Honda CB1000R tweaked for the track

For power junkies , the Honda CB1000R is one of the best roadsters on the market today. The build quality is superlative, the Fireblade-derived inline four pumps out a stonking 143 hp, and the Showa suspension is top-notch. We’re on the fence when it comes to the ‘neo sports café’ styling though. So news of a custom competition to revamp the CB1000R piqued our interest at EXIF HQ. Dealer competitions are usually a bit hit-and-miss, but the standard is remarkably high in this one. It’s run ...

The Best Pop Albums of 2018

10. Lake Street Dive - Free Yourself Up (Nonesuch) Over the years, Lake Street Dive has taken their jazzy, retro-soul sound and given it a bit more punch with each subsequent album. Sure, they're beloved by the NPR crowd (and are fiercely championed by Stephen Colbert), but their new album Free Yourself Up is a different beast entirely. Taking every trope they've ever tried and pushing it to its extreme, Free Yourself Up sounds like the band fully embracing their musical identity and having a l...

Junkyard Find: 1977 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Coupe

GM shrank its B-Body full-sized models for the 1977 model year, including the massive-selling Chevrolet Caprice/Impala. This proved a wise move in light of certain geopolitical events a couple of years later, and the 1977-1979 full-sized Chevrolet coupes got a cool “fastback” wraparound rear glass treatment. Here is such a car, spotted in a Denver […] The post Junkyard Find: 1977 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Coupe appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
