Better Than: Watching Three Musketeers, Three Stooges, and Three Amigos.

If you survived the last ten days, you've probably had enough uhntz-uhntz to last you till 2014. Or at least the rest of the month.
That's why we're taking time out to bring you five of the best chill, live performances happening this week. From hip-hop to electro fusion, post-punk, lo-fi, and live ... More >>
Florida may only be the fourth most populous state, but aside from California we've supplied the pornography industry with their second-biggest supply of hardcore video vixens. Yes, more porn stars were born in Florida than any other state but California. And, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise ... More >>
Candye Kane is a tough chick from Cali who came up playing country, blues, and rock on the L.A. punk scene in the '80s at the same time as she stripped to pay the bills.
Later, she became a porn star, beat an abusive relationship, and survived cancer, all while still making and recording music.

Sushi seems so easy -- raw fish, rice, wasabi. So it would seem that really good sushi bars should be on every corner, sorta like Starbucks. OK, ... More >>
Last month, Agnostic Front punched us in the throat and it changed our life.
The New York hardcore crew and Churchill's Pub shook Little Haiti harder on a Tuesday night than anywhere else in America any night of the week.
Now, it's Madball's turn to take a whack at Wednesday.
Cooper, a tiny Chihuahua-whippet mix, seems to have gone from sea to shining sea, but no one knows exactly how. The pup went missing from his Sacramento, California, home back in 2009. Earlier this month he turned up in Brandon, Florida. Unfortunately, his incredible journey did not involve anoth ... More >>
Have you've seen (or, well, heard) Nine Types of Light? It's the new-ish album by Brooklyn's TV on the Radio and it's so blindingly brilliant that if a weak-eyed, sensitive-eared indie kid such as yourself isn't very, very, very careful (i.e. UV-shield sunglasses and silicone), he or she could e ...

For millennia, only a supersmall slice of the world's human population could legitimately claim to have rocked out to the color spectrum. Of course, we're talking about those special party people with the strange neurological condition known as synesthesia. And, uh, certain recreational weed smo ... More >>

Fresh from the schlubby widescreen failure of The Green Hornet, superdirector Michel Gondry has decided to momentarily downsize his ambitions, returning to the small screen (your laptop, not TV) with a new music video for "How Are You Doing?" by cute Cali trio Living Sisters.

Out of all the big-name dubstep producers, Rusko is probably the one with the most obvious sense of humor. His tracks are bass-heavy, sure, but they're also full of quirky, high-end samples, and generally harbor less of that sense of impending doom that permeates the work of people like Skream. A ...

Why does aging Cali club kid Steve Aoki always seem to be everywhere all the time? He's like some kind of superhuman funhouse mirror, multiplying his slick indie-slouch image a million and one times throughout the mediated universe. It's kinda creepy ... Wherever I look (music mags, dark alleys, ... More >>

A summer night in 1999, my friends David, Cali and I rode out to Mezzanote in Coral Gables. He said it was a party, but it looked like a restaurant and sounded like cool music. The DJ was in some corner by the door to the busboys chamber, his name was Alex "Cookie Heads" Caso. Cookie Heads was funny ... More >>

Their video for (their only song?) "Going Back to Calle Ocho" -- which we're pretty sure is play on Notorious B.I.G.'s ... More >>
