Concert Review: Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets Dishes Up Seminal Pink Floyd Delights

David Gilmour’s and Roger Waters’ post-Pink Floyd tours have come up against a common problem: how to deal with the songs (or parts of songs) that the other guy sang. You would think that would be a dilemma squared for drummer Nick Mason, as he undertakes his first “solo” outing, a quarter-century after the last […]

What Happens When A Rockstar Turns 40? Karen O Teams With Danger Mouse To Ask On Lux Prima

There was a real danger when combining Karen O and Danger Mouse that things could get too theatrical. O, as the indelible lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs established an unparalleled style, from her shrieking vocals to her outre stage presence, that none of her peers from the New York scene of the aughties could replicate. And Danger Mouse, in his collaborations with Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley) and James Mercer (Broken Bells) as well as his production work with the Black Keys, Beck, and Ade...

Dark and Dangerous

I came back to Santiago the morning after International Women’s Day. The march must have been something, the walls of buildings all along La Alameda were covered with hundreds of graffiti and posters. A special attention was paid to churches and Catholic universities, with slogans such as “legalize abortion,” “kill your rapist,” “get pedophiles out” and “we are the voice of those who have none.” And then I stumbled upon three men perched on ladders painting over graffiti. Obviously, they were hi...

17 Essential Songs In 7/4

There's a reason why all those Ramones songs start with "1-2-3-4!" -- and also a reason why Captain Beefheart raged against the "big mama heartbeat." For anyone growing up in America in the last century, 4/4 meter has been the core of popular music -- rock, pop, rap, blues, gospel, all the way back to … More »

Good Things Only Happen When You Are Moving

--> Probably the low point of my life was the summer I decided I needed to get ready for eleventh grade. Since I was young, I had been told that if I wanted to get into a good college, I would have to earn excellent grades in eleventh grade. My father had gone to Harvard and had told me since the time I was old enough to understand about how he earned all As in his junior year of high school, and how this had helped him get into this great college. I intended to do the same. Some of the stre...

The Life & Work of Edvard Munch, Explored by Patti Smith and Charlotte Gainsbourg

Look beyond the highly distressed genderless figure in the foreground of The Scream, one of the most famous painting in existence, and you'll find plenty of women. While its painter Edvard Munch was a man, as his name might suggest, the rest of his body of work featured not a few female bodies: 1895's Woman in Three Stages, 1896's Young Woman on the Beach, and in 1907's The Sick Child, a highly personal work by an artist whose mother and sister both died of tuberculosis. Or take 1895's M...

Maduro orders borders closed as tensions mount over aid and rival music concerts

Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela's president, ordered the border with Brazil to be closed and said he was considering doing the same with Colombia as US aid stacked up on both frontiers on Thursday night. Mr Maduro dismissed efforts to deliver basic food and medicine as a "provocation" as opposition groups were heading to the border to carry the aid packages through in defiance of the regime. Juan Guaido, the opposition leader now recognised as Venezuela's legitimate president by 52 countries, ...

One more time

ONE MORE TIME There have been times when friends and I have sat and talked of times gone by and inevitably someone will ask, "what would you do differently?" And I have to say that with all the choices I have made in life, both good and bad, they have helped to mold me into the person I am today. So it's not a question of, what I would do differently, but, what could I do again? Have you ever stood at the summit of a mountain after hiking all the way up, just to enjoy the view? Or stood on the...

The Spectacular Border Crossing Between Argentina and Chile – Stuck on Top of the Andes Before 28 Hairpin Turns

Everywhere in the world, border crossing can be a long process. “Well, that’s gonna take forever,” I mutter to myself, counting the number of buses ahead of us, waiting to enter the Complejo Los Libertadores, the immigration checkpoint between Argentina and Chile. The bus stops. It’s not going to be quick and easy. It’s okay. I don’t mind being stuck on top of the Andes, between Argentina and Chile. The scenery is spectacular. I get up from my seat. “Can we… go out?” I ask, hopefully. “Oh yeah, ...

Coachella history: See photos of all the festival’s headliners from the first 10 years

Just months after the disaster of Woodstock ’99, a brand-new festival launched. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival started in October 1999 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.

I’m Leaving Brazil With…

A new swimsuit I bought at the night market in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. A very lucky pick for 50 reais ($13), especially considering I couldn’t try it on! 4 tweezers, a pack of two I bought in São Paulo and two that were given to me after a depilação session. 3 panties because Brazil does panties very well. A 30 reais ($8) Pink Floyd t-shirt bought at the Galeria do Rock in São Paulo. A $2 white “New Year” cropped top bought in Catete, Rio de Janeiro. I’m still wearing because I love the cut...
