    Major-Label Misfit: Mistah F.A.B.

    Oakland rapper Mistah F.A.B. would be the first to admit there's a problem when it comes to rap music: If you're identified with the streets, you're not supposed to be lyrical; and if you're lyrical, how "street" can you really be? Nevertheless, he ...

    Sketchfest stokes the musician-comedian love affair

    Let's face it: There are far too few laughs to be had at rock shows these days. The last musical performer who had me doubled over was David Lee Roth (mostly in spite of himself) in San Jose last month, but otherwise the same old stage banter is har...

    Plaid's body-moving, soul-stirring beats

    New Jersey's Harry "Choo Choo" Romero has a locomotive moniker, but the house DJ and producer isn't known for trainwrecking records. Instead, he's managed to remain relevant in a fickle scene since the mid-'90s. Subliminal Records, the label he foun...
