    Live Review - Effin' Brutal! Slayer at the Long Beach Arena, Saturday, July 22

    In much the same way that people who actually think American Beauty was a good movie with something to say about our country will never understand what an infinitely superior movie about America The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was, intellectuals have re...

    Live Review - Effin' Awesome! Steely Dan at the Verzon Wireless Amphitheater, Irvine, Sunday, July 19

    Two days before the show, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen posted an open letter to actor Luke Wilson on their website (www.steelydan.com/heyluke.html): "Luke, think of yourself, man. Do you want to go down as the brother of the Zal Yanovsky of the 21...

    Pinging Panties - Peaches

    Electroclash artist Peaches is known for her provocative minstrel act of a live show: fake beards and blood spitting, merkin (look it up; I swear you'll find it in the pubic interest) swag, and lots and lots of gold lam. I hated her the first time ...

    A Twist of Gangsta - Warren G

    It's pretty much agreed that Warren G's original claim to fame--"Regulate," his 1994 picaresque single with Nate Dogg--remains his greatest achievement. Nothing wrong with that. By combining a Michael McDonald sample, the overall badassery of Nate D...

    Don't Need a Cure - Listening to Blue Cheer and fucking

    The '60s were a moment only in advertising and art school; if they really happened, they were the '50s overamplified into more noise than order, and except for one last anomalous artifact that didn't fit then and doesn't fit now, we could forever di...

    Faux Fear - Slayer

    Don't tell their fans this, but Slayer has never really been that scary. Sure, there are some religious types who may get chafed by the band's choice of words and/or artwork, but Slayer's always been more entertaining than evil. They've never actual...
