Pearl Jam Debut “River Cross” In Harrison Ford-Narrated Fake-Profound Verizon Super Bowl Commercial

Between Fox's over-the-top patriotic content and at least a few of the non-snarky commercials, last night's Super Bowl broadcast was awfully heavy on attempted profundity. Consider, for instance, the Verizon commercial about how 5G service would not, thank goodness, change the heart of America's bravest heroes. That ad, it turns, out, was soundtracked by "River … More »

Songs for Screens: Synchs, Artist Cameos Help Super Bowl Music Market Finish Strong

Cool Kids Guide of Things to Do in Seattle with Kids (adult’s love these too!)

Seattle is cool. Uniquely cool. And there is a great balance of things to do in Seattle with kids AND for us adults too! Starbucks. Amazon. Microsoft. Costco. Boeing. Pearl Jam. Nirvana. Just a few things Seattle, Washington is famous for producing. How can one city produce so many great things? It’s a city that has been high on my radar since Seattle grunge became a played out thing on my walkman. I just had to go to the place that birthed some of my favorite music ever.

‘Long Shot’ Director Jonathan Levine on the Soundtracks to His Movies and Life [Interview]

“Music inspires you to keep making images,” director Jonathan Levine says. The director of The Wackness, 50/50, and the new Seth Rogen–Charlize Theron rom-com, Long Shot, constantly finds himself inspired by music. Whether he’s writing or thinking of the mood for a movie, music is on his mind. His love for music was evident from the start of his career with The Wackness, but his movies that followed have been packed with songs that fit just right. With Long Shot, he was mostly inspired by music...

El Corazon, site of first Pearl Jam show, may be demolished

El Corazon, a scruffy metal and punk venue with a deep history in the Seattle music scene, may be demolished to make way for two mixed-use towers. In its heyday, the club was known as the Off Ramp and hosted the earliest Pearl Jam shows when the band was called Mookie Blaylock.

Coachella 2019: These festival fans have been going since the beginning

They were there the first time Rage Against the Machine played, and they were there eight years later when the Los Angeles group reunited at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2007. They saw Amy Winehouse, Arcade Fire and Childish Gambino long before they were household names. Now that Coachella has turned 20 — and is very different from the event that started at the Empire Polo Club in the fall of 1999 — we talked to some of the festival’s die-hard fans who keep coming back to the ...

The best record stores in the US

Record store day is this Saturday, April 13, and if you’re reading this, that means that you are likely among the last bastion of badass music fans that actually care about the quality of the sound in your ears.
