It's Tuesday err'body. And that means we're one day closer to Friday.
Luckily, you don't have to wait four, long, dreadful days to party like it's the weekend. There are plenty of concerts going down all week, from goth rock to metal to hip-hop.
Just check the cut for Crossfade's five best concert ... More >>

Better Than: Getting pooped on.
The opportunity to see one of the originators of punk-rock iconoclasm perform in an intimate setting is a rare one indeed. However, Miami was treated to just such an experience on Friday night courtesy of ... More >>
It's a fine line between pure genius and utter insanity. Many musicians have made a career out of toeing that line. Or, uh, totally jumping it and never looking back.
As it turns out, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. And since batshit crazy people don't care what month it actually is, neither ... More >>
Performance-wise, no Kraftwerk show is really more special than any other. The band's very German mastery of automation, precision, and repetation renders the men on stage as close to robots as their Man Machine album would suggest. To say one Kraftwerk performance is really any better than anoth ... More >>
That way to Suckville!Festivals are sort of the Costco of live music. Take, for example, the upcoming 2012 edition of Coachella. If you purchased individual concert tickets for every artist on the lineup, the cost would far exceed the festival's more-or-less $400 fee.
But when you visit Costco t ... More >>
Art and music. These days, it's like they're dating or something. And it's kind of cute.
The season for Art Walk-ing is back. There's finally a breeze and a two minute stroll down NE Second Avenue doesn't leave one drenched in sticky sweat. And thanks to the return of an abundance of art, it's l ... More >>

Hardcore historian Steven Blush.It's hard to believe that three decades have slipped past since the birth of hardcore punk. And it's even harder to believe that legends like Black Flag and Minor Threat haven't let loose a loud fast riff in 25 years.
But that's the truth ... Hardcore is history. ... More >>

It's now eight and a half hours since Fucked Up played their last song. But still my hearing is dangerously (permanently?) da ... More >>
via their MySpace pageAhhh, the Libertines. Most people first heard about the English rockers -- which formed in 1997 -- because of their co-frontman Pete Doherty's bouts with drugs, rehab, messing around with Amy Winehouse, his relationship with Kate Moss, stint in jail... did we miss anything?U ...

ESPN's Arash Markazi went along for the ride at a party that Miami Heat forward LeBron James threw for himself at a Las Vegas nightclub last weekend that featured -- among other things -- scantily clad women, a crown-shaped cake, and a flying waiter. The account was posted on ESPN.com Wednesday m ... More >>
via @loveonedoveOver here at Crossfade, when we're home alone, chained to our computers and wasting away from lack of food, booze, and human company, we like to live vicariously through Twitter. (It's also good for checking when to actually pay attention to some long, boring crap like the Grammys ... More >>
Art Basel week is the time of surreal collaborations and appearances, so when New York mag reported a supposed "Sex Pistols concert on the beach," it seemed plausible. Still, they only got it 25 percent right. One Pistol will, indeed, be performing, at the very swish new Opium Group poolside venue ... More >>
Journeyman singer/songwriter Alejandro Escovedo has performed solo for a number of years now, but he sure has played in a lot of bands, too. It's a theme that recurs throughout his latest album, Real Animal. A loose memoir of sorts, the album's subject matter and styles span Escovedo's 30-year mus ... More >>
