October 1st, 2009
Photo: Dowling/Getty “You’re everything I’ve dreamt of for 20 years,” said Australian dance-pop princess Kylie Minogue to the lucky crowd that witnessed the Oakland opening-night performance on her first-ever North American tour. As a platform for a singer who only briefly tasted mainstream U.S. fame with her 1988 cover version of “The Loco-Motion” and her 2001 breakthrough “Can’t Get You out of My Head,” the show provided everything her patient cult would want — except a ...

We’re only a month away from the 20th anniversary reissue of Nirvana’s Bleach, and Sub Pop is offering up a free download of one of the songs on the remastered live disc that will accompany the band’s debut album. “Scoff” was recorded at Portland, Oregon’s Pine Street Theatre on February 9th, 1990, and judging on this track alone, the previously unreleased concert disc will put to shame all those pre-Nevermind bootlegs you purchased back in ...

Springsteen Launches Jersey Stand With New “Wrecking Ball”

October 1st, 2009
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band kicked off their five-night Giants Stadium stand last night with a brand new song called “Wrecking Ball” — a tribute to the venue that’s months away from being demolished. In the surprisingly poignant track, Springsteen takes the voice of the gigantic concrete structure (”I was raised out of steel in the swamps of Jersey… I’ve seen champions come and go”) but was also clearly singing about his own ...

Halfway through Gov’t Mule’s intimate September 30th set at Brooklyn Bowl in New York, singer-guitarist Warren Haynes started playing the most unlikely riff, a gnarly stuttering thing that many of the couple-hundred folks on hand to celebrate the release of the Mule’s new studio album, By a Thread, probably didn’t recognize: “Is It My Body,” from Alice Cooper’s 1971 dirty-glitter classic, Love It to Death. ...
