What To Expect At A Pizza Underground Show

Pizza: invented approximately three centuries ago, yet it has never been hotter. Pizza is having something of a moment right now. Beyoncé wore a head-to-toe pepperoni pizza-printed ensemble to a raw, vegan eatery; Ellen DeGeneres – ever the philanthropist – handed out slices to the undernourished, over-celebrated A-list masses at …



Soundchecking with… Antwon

It’s hard to put a label on Antwon’s blend of thrash-influenced hip-hop. But the again, putting a label on things wouldn’t exactly reflect the punk aesthetic that the rapper’s music stems from. Growing up amid the Bay Area hardcore scene, Antwon spent most of his time at all age punk



Video Premiere: Caveman – ‘Shut You Down’

Live Review: Tomoyasu Hotei – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 9/11/13

A common film saying might go along the lines of lights, camera and action. Funnily enough, that’s exactly what was experienced tonight at Shepherd’s Bush Empire with Japanese superstar, Tomoyasu Hotei. To many outside of his native Japan, the name might not seem to ring any bells at first. But …

Live Review: The Reflektors @ The Roundhouse, 11/11/13

Within a week of Arcade Fire’s fourth album ‘Reflektor’ topping the UK and US album chart we caught them live for a rather special performance at The Roundhouse in London. Using the fake band name The Reflektors they invited attendees to don their finest garb for a masked ball that …
