It’s documented in everything you read about Flyleaf this month, this year, last year, and probably the year before that. The hard rock act has a new singer and are currently on tour supporting a new album. So the gist is this: Longtime lead singer Lacey Mosely has been out since 2012, and Kristen May ..
October is a lot of things. It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s Halloween decorations. It’s Pumpkin Spice everything. And in New York for the last 34 years, it’s meant the start of the CMJ Music Marathon. The fest features information industry events, parties, and above all, over a thousand performances over nearly 100 venues throughout ..
It’s raining in New York. It’s cold. I’m wearing a cardigan, and downing a Pumpkin Creme Brulee latte from Dunkin’ Donuts. Autumn can be beautiful, but it’s not today. That’s why I chose these two specific bands for today’s A-Sides post. Vacationer not only has a sunny band name, but their music instantly can brighten ..
Photo/Jesse Jenkins Most of the time, a song gets stuck inside your head for hours, days courtesy of a catchy chorus or well-written verse. In the case of Bastille, however, their orca-whale-sized hit “Pompeii” produced a mind gloriously filled with repeated “eh ohs.” Still on heavy rotation on alt and pop stations a year later, ..
In 1989, my parents took me to see The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. My dad had hyped up the show, noting right off the bat how it started with a chandelier falling from the ceiling. The show didn’t disappoint but I had a huge obstacle standing in the way of my theatrical experience. ..

For starters, the event had just a small spot within the massive Javits Center, and attendees included Kevin Smith, who goes to everything, and Bosom Buddies co-star Peter Scolari, who probably ..
The press release (or pitch rather) for Wrongchilde’s debut album Gold Blooded started out by saying it sounds “like a John Hughes soundtrack for Donnie Darko.” Well, you had me at John Hughes. The spot-on (and awesome) opening lines for the solo debut by Killing Hannah front man Mat Devine (he opted to go as ..
Like so many people, I was inspired by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this summer. Since today (Oct. 1) marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I’m hoping to create a similar online campaign but without the use of water, ice cubes, and challenges to friends to get wet. A-Sides’ Sing Away Cancer Challenge ..
All summer long, and well into the fall so far, everybody seems to be drinking the Vance Joy Kool-Aide. Rightfully so. The Melbourne-based singer/songwriter, whose real name is James Keogh, creates magic with his music – subtle melodies with deeply-felt lyrics. That being said, he spawned a huge alt-rock hit with “Riptide” this summer off ..
A-Sides Gets Raw: WWE Superstars Kofi Kingston and Big E Discuss Roadtrip Playlists, TV Favs, and the WWE Network
We all have done it. We still do. Back in the day, it was a mix tape. Eventually, it became a CD mix. Now, it’s a playlist. Whenever we go on a plane, train, or are in an automobile, we shut out the outside noise by listening to our favorite tracks. It’s no different for ..
