Stop Covering “Waiting Room”

Last night, Arcade Fire played D.C. and straightforwardly covered "Waiting Room." Everyone knew Arcade Fire would cover "Waiting Room," because the band has been playing city-appropriate covers throughout its current arena tour, and obviously they were going to cover "Waiting Room." Because "Waiting Room."
Here is a list of 10 bands that have covered "Waiting Room." One of [...]

Photos: Virgin FreeFest 2011

The sun shone bright Saturday at this year's Virgin FreeFest at Merriweather Post Pavilion, and while the grounds were a bit muddier than last year, at least the Dance Forest wasn't as dusty. It was the first nice afternoon in weeks—as well as the day before the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and the start of [...]

Virgin Mobile FreeFest: Winners, Losers, and John Walker Lindh

On Saturday, the Virgin Mobile FreeFest dodged rainy forecasts and generally moved forward on the Merriweather Post Pavilion grounds with the efficiency and grace of a Tony Romo drive, at least for the first three quarters. The Ferris wheel was steady; burritos in the press tent were easy to smuggle; no one in the dance [...]

Tinariwen’s Tassili, Reviewed

It’s hard to know how long a record like Tassili lasts. It’s easy to get lost in, feel transported by, and forget when it all began.

Yet Another Fugazi “Cover”

Click Track says it's the "Year of the Fugazi Cover", now that TV on the Radio's brilliant live rendition of "Waiting Room" at last weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival is all over the Internet. (Full disclosure: Hearing the song's bass intro after battling the heat all day cheered me right up.) The year is barely past [...]

Howling Forever: TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone on Allen Ginsberg and “Howl in the City”

Kyp Malone does not stand still. When his band TV on the Radio finished up its most recent tour, multi-instrumentalist Malone kept pushing forward. He released a strange, even unsettling solo album under the name Rain Machine and hit the road again both in the states and in Europe. When he was recently invited to [...]

TV on the Radio @ 9:30

On Monday night, TV on the Radio exorcised any demons lingering after February's uncharacteristic misstep on Saturday Night Live with a triumphant sold out show at the 9:30 Club. They opened the cage on the postmodern menagerie of sounds harnessed in the masterful Dear Science while keeping the layered electronic howl respectfully danceable.
