By this point you've either succumbed to Iggy Azalea's summer hit "Fancy," or you're fundamentally put off by the rapper who's looking more and more like 2014's answer to Mackelmore (if Mackelmore were an Australian model who rhymed in a very practiced fake Atlanta drawl). Both are perfectly defensible positions. If you're in the pro-Iggy camp, though, you'll get a chance to see her live soon. Tod...

It's been 23 years since a heavily flannelled Pearl Jam released their debut album, Ten, a blockbuster that helped fuel the ’90s alt-rock explosion and introduced the band as the everyman alternative to Nirvana. The band’s long run is particularly noteworthy considering the tragic fates of many of the other Washington grunge bands of the era. In all that time, though, they've never played at M...

With August Alsina

Once again this year, 2 Chainz was inescapable on rap radio, thanks to features on singles by just about every name artist in his genre. He received less attention, though, for his own record, B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time, a smarter, more confident sequel to his 2012 debut. Today the Rave announced that the rapper will headline the venue with another rapper who released his own underrated album this year...

With a new lineup

By Shepherd Express Staff
Indie-rock veterans Built to Spill will return to the Turner Hall Ballroom on Friday, November 15, the venue announced this morning. They last played the ballroom in 2010, when they were touring behind their latest album, 2009's There is No Enemy. The band had been fairly quiet in the years since, taking a rare break from the road before announcing a new lineup this year. Longtime drummer Scott Pl...

With Tyler the Creator

Buoyed by the support of Kanye West, who signed the Cleveland rapper to his GOOD Music label, Kid Cudi emerged as one of 2009’s breakout artists with his Internet hit “Day ’n’ Nite.” Cudi’s debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, wasn’t the precious sung/rap album some might have expected from that single, though. Instead it was an epic, hyper-conceptual, experimental mood piec...

Next week, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James will release his first solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, an expansive piece that builds on the genre-hopping sensibilities of My Morning Jacket's most wide-ranging albums—it's a hodgepodge of spacey funk, rock, soul, colored with folk and hip-hop detours. To support that album, James and his band will launch a spring tour in April, whi...
