posted August 5th, 2010

Think they’re tired from their transatlantic travels? Well, you’re wrong! In fact, Bonnie & The Gang are in transit as we speak, ready to spread their love all over the Pacific Northwest with an appearance at the Pickathon Festival in Happy Valley, Oregon. Who needs rest when... (read more)

hide your children, RANGDA is coming to town!

posted August 5th, 2010

Traditional Balinese mythology says Rangda is a child-eating demon queen who leads an army of evil witches against the forces of good. We beg to differ! Rangda is actually a trinity of hardened men -- Chris Corsano, Ben Chasny, and Sir Richard Bishop-- who've combined forces to become the musical equivalent of a child-eating demon. OK, so they did take their name from the aforementioned myth. Who are we to say they aren't really, in actuality, channeling this terrifying creature? Well, I guess we just... (read more)

GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER???

posted July 23rd, 2010

Neil Hamburger may be called the anti-comic but he still gets due respect from his fellow funny-man. In fact, at last week's Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, Neil was stunned when some Dane Cook-looking fellow who approached him for a photo turned out to actually be Dane Cook! Here they are in that very special photo below. And if you look really closely, you might even be able to tell the two men apart (!) But there's no mistaking Neil's distinct brand... (read more)
