Mark Stock's Coachella, Part Three: The Dids and Didn'ts


Now that the dust has settled and my dehydration-based hallucinations have passed, it's time for a somewhat rational rant.

Frown Face:

Coachella is one of our nation's prominent music festivals, there's simply do dodging that. Proof outside of the lineup lies in th...   More

Mark Stock's Coachella, Part One: The NW Presence


It is no coincidence that Coachella's finest lineup to date included five notable bands with strong Pacific Northwest ties. Simply put, these bands made the three-day festival set in California's scalding Mojave Desert quite a bit cooler.

Live Review: Wax Fingers, Saturday, March 13 @ Mississippi Studios


When you toy with time signature changes as much as Wax Fingers do, it's hard for a fan to keep up.

While Midlake's newest record hasn't received the acclaim the Texas outfit is used to, 2006's near perfect The Trials Of Van Occupanther is a tough act to follow.

Mark Stock's Austin City Limits


We sent Mark Stock to Austin City Limits because—well, because he wanted to go to Austin City Limits, and because we wanted to hear about it. It's going up a bit late due to unforeseen circumstances at the home office. -Ed.
