Weezer’s Riot Fest Act Goes Over Well

Upon Weezer’s announcement as headliner of Riot Fest, there was much scoffing and dismissive hand gesturing in the world of music nerds. I should know; I was one of the naysayers.

Beasties, RHCP, Cure Up For Rock Hall

Q101.com can’t live in a world where Abba is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but not the Beastie Boys.  They’ve had quite a year…it may get better (not that we think they care about something like this). The Cure would get our vote if we didn’t sit through two stunningly and unnecessarily…

Kiss Him Goodbye: The Ozzman Goeth

“People are happy after they make money, f— it.’’-Ozzie Guillen Wowoweewah is it gonna be quiet around this town.  The Bears look DOA (hey, at least they’re under the cap to the tune of about $19 mil…Woot for the McCaskeys making 19 mil more this year!), The Cubs are deader than dead for year 103…
