Hang the DJ: DJ Magic Beans


This week it is Ms. Maggie Vail serving up answers to our DJ questions. What's she doing when not working as VP at Kill Rock Stars (the label she's worked at since '94) and making music in bands Romancing and Leti Angel?

Gloria Estefan, "Conga" DJ Pocketrock-it Remix (Unreleased)


When was the last time Gloria Estefan was relevant with the young'ns or sounded anywhere near approaching hip? Was it when she did that duet with 'N Sync in 1999?

Oh God, Even More Panic at the Disco Live Review Action


There are few things I would sacrifice my health for. On the road to recovery after a three week long bout with Bronchitis and walking pneumonia, I made a U-turn on Sunday when I ventured out to catch Panic at the Disco at the Expo center.

Almost Nearly, Saturday June 14


[TEENAGE TWEE] Almost Nearly, true to its name, was never meant to last. When Nicole Perry began writing songs on an acoustic guitar with Hurah Hurah bandmate Ross McLeron (after that twee-pop outfit’s breakup), it was simply to fill a void.

Photo Review: World's Great Ghosts at KPSU, June 2, 2008


Just after 10 pm on Monday night, World's Great Ghosts launched into a truncated five-song set at KPSU for broadcast on Sound Judgement.
