Sidewalk Chalk with The Almighty Get Down

Friday • MOTR

Comments 0 · Apr 16, 2014 10:11 am

Sidewalk Chalk's just-released second album, Leaves, opens with a live clip in which frontdude/rapper Rico Sisney and frontlady/singer Maggie Vagle ask a crowd to shout out the Hip Hop crew's name on the count of three.

He’d expected an out-of-town show to be sparsely attended, which would theoretically allow him a seat at the bar and a chance to recharge for the remainder of the night.

Arlo Can You Go?

Comments 1 · Apr 9, 2014 09:08 am

There’s an interesting paradigm in Folk/Americana singer/songwriter Arlo McKinley’s career. McKinley has only been on the scene since 2012; his alter ego, Tim Carr, was a back-of-the-stage fixture for many years. But when Carr moved into the spotlight to front his Arlo McKinley and the Lonesome Sound, he found it necessary to adopt a new persona to handle the increased attention. ...

Entire Obama Presidency Discredited

Plus, Frank Ocean pays back Chipolte and the reunited Black Flag is still a disaster

Comments 0 · Mar 12, 2014 09:54 am

The President gets no respect from most conservatives (and he can't spell it either), Frank Ocean pays back the check Chipolte gave him for a commercial he didn't want to do and if they ever make a low-budget nightmare version of This is Spinal Tap, Black Flag has to star.
