Spank Rock: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 14 2011

When Spank Rock debuted in 2005, the indie world was swept up in Baltimore club music fetishism and primed for a dance party group grope. And that's what Spank Rock provided: with bass-heavy gutter rhythms following in the footsteps of Hollertronix and M.I.A., the duo of MC Spank Rock and producer XXXChange became a Next Big Thing. Six years later, the dirty rap crew returns with Everything Is Boring and Everyone Is a Fucking Liar, a collection of darker-tinged angular electro rather than raunchy glitch-hop. The album shows facets of the group beyond the grimy hype.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
