What happens when a music festival is canceled just a few days prior to its commencement? A ton of angry tweets, people demanding refunds, bands with no venues to play, and an army of Hanson fans screaming shenanigans. As you may have heard Sunset Junction, the little community event that became a giant music festival, had the plug pulled just 48 hours before the function and what ensued...

The Vaccines at Outside Lands
We safely made it through another day of the Outside Lands Music Festival but with a little added pinkness to our skin. The grey skies finally turned blue which  didn't make us sad one bit, the only thing that could do that was the realization that we would only have one more day in the majestic San Fran climate. With the sun beating down most of the day we made our way into all the tents...

The four days that were The Sasquatch 2011 Music Festival was a magical one for us here at Beatcrave and Memorial Day Monday was the most packed day of music we had all weekend. It seemed that every band that played was worthy of taking up every minute we had. We also got to see Beatcrave Fav, Foster the People, play the most jammed packed set of the weekend over at The Yeti stage...

The Sasquatch Festival is already upon us and Beatcrave is here in Washington celebrating the 10th year birthday of our favorite hairy creature. The party is so big they had to add an extra half day to get the party started a little early. While the day might have been light on the acts, it was not light on the rock. Sure with Bob Mold and Death From Above 1979 you already have some pretty...

The Pierces at Hotel Cafe
The Pierces took the stage at Hollywood's Hotel Cafe this past Tuesday evening. The crowd was a-plenty, standing room only, bubbly and eager in anticipation of, seemingly, their girls. Walking onto the stage from the front, the stunning pair were helped onto it by their band, and instead of introducing themselves via spoken word, they launched into the first song of their set....

Everest at The Echo
If anyone remained unconvinced that Everest had made it--after the tour with Neil Young, the numerous late night talk show appearances, the acclaimed record on Warner Bros.--there was ample evidence of the band’s success Thursday night at the Echo. For one thing, the fairly small venue was packed, with a line of eager fans extending down Sunset Boulevard. But plenty of...
