Anything that Nick Lowe puts his hands on is pretty much a winner!

Re: “MGMT: MGMT

I think you need to rethink the MGMT album! Just get weird with the "Alien Days" video and you'll come around http://noisey.vice.com/music-video/premieres/mgmt-alien-days-1

Re: “Pearl Jam: Lightning Bolt

When you say, "exactly what should be expected from Pearl Jam in 2013.." What exactly do you mean and what are you expecting? Lightning Bolt, in my opinion, is the best album they put out since Yield. I liked Backspacer, but it was bland with similar songs and not much that plays on repeat on the IPOD - "Unthought Known, The End, Got Some" are good songs, but do not compare to "Mind your Manners, Sirens, Pendulum, Yellow Moon or Swallowed Whole." I fear just like a lot of you critics, the yearn for Ten and Vs. is in the back of the mind - and tend to forget that you are reviewing a band nearing 50 years old. What Pearl Jam gave us 23 years later, was more than I could ever have hoped for as an avid rock and roll alternative fan. This album, if you listened to it more than one time, is pretty genius. Yellow Moon and Pendulum are badass jams - Mind your Manners is the best pure rock song I have heard in 2 years since the Foo came out with Back and Forth. Critics appear to be extremely hard on PJ due to their incredible run with their first 5 albums released - amazing. Fact is, they got older and not singing about teenage angst, daddy problems, and being teased at school anymore. But this CD is extremely good and still 23 years later, comes out with new sounding music and new Pearl Jam classic experimental songs, A LA Pendulum and Sirens....I say, thank you Pearl Jam - this is exactly what rock and roll lovers needed - because our youth is not coming out with anything that is worthy of purchasing.

Re: “Jimmy Eat World: Damage (RCA)

Excited to see they're back in action with a new album! Love I Will Steal You Back http://smarturl.it/StealYouBackVEVO

Re: “Jimmy Eat World: Damage (RCA)

Definitely think this is one of their strongest releases in awhile. I Will Steal You Back is one of my favorites as well. http://smarturl.it/StealYouBackVEVO

Re: “Sun Bones: Sentinel Peak (Self-Released)

Sun Bones is incredible! Their live show is even more amazing then their album, and I can't stop listening to Love Letter. Amazing album from an amazing band!

Re: “The Mission Creeps: Midnight Blood (Self-Released)

This is comical:"Musically, the Mission Creeps are one of the most perfectly named bands around, with thumping and thudding drums, thick and edgy bass lines and guitar leads that scream, wail and shudder. Guitarist-singer James Arrr and bassist Miss Frankie Stein prove again that they simply own their groovy, dark realm."

... In other words they are not your most favorite band. No positivity here. Very tactful way to say they suck ass. Do you owe them money? Come on just come out & say it. Grow some balls. What a wuss for a music critic.

Re: “The Electric Blankets: Vehicles (Self-Released)

FWIW, tickets are also buy-one-get-one-free with a KFMA Day ticket stub.

Re: “The Electric Blankets: Vehicles (Self-Released)

Thanks, David! It's a bit odd that it say $6 advance on Rialto's event info page for the show, although it could just be me thinking it odd.

Re: “The Electric Blankets: Vehicles (Self-Released)

Hey Ldonyo -- I just called over to the Rialto Box Office, and apparently tickets are only being sold at the door tomorrow night, nothing in advance.

Re: “The Electric Blankets: Vehicles (Self-Released)

I just stopped by the Rialto to get tickets for this and they don't have them. No one seems to have them. Any reference to tickets points to the Rialto. More than a little frustrating to say the least.
