Vulture posted an interesting interview with The Daily Show host Jon Stewart about his tenure as a bartender at New Jersey punk club City Gardens.
There was some tremendous bands that played there, and some great shows. X did a great show. Gibby from Butthole Surfers nearly burned the place down. Anybody from Joan Jett to Agnostic Front and GBH and GWAR. You know, Black Flag and Bad Brains. Bad Brains was like the house band, they were there like every six weeks. They were amazing. The Chili Peppers. It was just an incredible and vibrant scene and there was nothing else like it.

The UK emo act Crash of Rhinos, who released the excellent and overlooked Knots last year, have broken up. Knots is still up for "name your price" on their bandcamp and a repress of the vinyl is currently available through Topshelf Records, so grab it and realize what you've been missing out on.
It is with with regret we have to tell you all that Crash is no more. We've had some incredible times. Some of the best times, met some of the best people, played with some of the best bands. Thank you to to anyone who bought Distal and/or Knots, shared them, came to see us live, bought a shirt, or gave us a place to stay. You're the people that really made it work whilst it worked.

In an interview with Revolt TV, OutKast member Big Boi singelhandedly ruined my life by denying plans for a new album from the duo. He does, however, have a third solo album in the works and you can still catch the legendary pair live on their massive festival run throughout the rest of the year.
“No, no, no. We’re just doing the tour only, just for the fans,” he recently told Revolt. “That’s all it is, just the tour.” "It's just the OutKast 20th year anniversary," he continued. "Just a way for us to celebrate with our fans, but there's no album in the works."

Green Day's Dookie turned 20 this year, but its influence can still be felt to this day. Case in point: Rochester, NY punk rock trio Envious Disguise. Head to the replies to stream "She Hates Me" from their debut album, Blood, Sweat and Beers, which comes out tomorrow via Eat Here Records. The concise, punchy number could easily fit between four-chord anthems by Green Day and MxPx on your skateboarding mixtape.

Pharrell has released the tracklisting for his upcoming album Girl. It's due out on March 3rd and will feature Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, and Alicia Keys.

California has produced its fair share of punk bands over the years and The Mighty Fine is looking like it's going to be a part of that group of artists very soon. The band is releasing Brothers and Smugglers on March 4th via Creator-Destructor Records. It was recorded and produced by Kyle Black (Strung Out, Set Your Goals, Comeback Kid) and fans of 90s melodic punk bands like Hot Water Music, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms will definitely love this. We're happy to premiere the group's video for "Daphne" which you can view in the replies.

Ikea is discontinuing their Expedit shelves line -- which are fantastic for vinyl collections.
However, the panic, love, and support for IKEA's Expedit could be misplaced. The Swedish firm is planning to replace Expedit with Kallax, an almost identical grid-like shelving unit with thinner sides and rounded edges. Some record collectors are aware of the replacement, but the fear is that the thinner version won’t be sturdy enough to support the hundreds of vinyl that the various 4 x 4 and 5 x 5 Expedit configurations allow.

Beach Community will be putting out a new Apologies, I Have None EP soon. Read a statement from the band below.
There's good news and the bad news. We've been quite quiet for a short while but not slacking. The last few months have been spent writing, recording, then rewriting and rerecording demos for a load of new songs. This brings us onto the good news. We're going into the studio next week to record some of these songs which we'll be releasing as an EP with the beautiful people at Beach Community (UK) and Uncle M Records (GER). WE'RE FINALLY GOING TO HAVE SOME NEW SONGS!

As we like to keep everything balanced there is unfortunately some bad news. We are extremely sad to say...

You can watch Norma Jean's new video for "Sword In Mouth, Fire Eyes" at Metal Injection. Watch out for Business Shark.

Today, we're premiering one of my favorite 2014 releases thus far - the full-length debut album from Creative Adult. The album's titled Psychic Mess and it's available next Tuesday via Run For Cover Records. The 12-track album is a dark, fuzzy noisemaker infused with psychedelic haze in the vein of Fugazi and the like. Check out Psychic Mess in the replies and pre-order it via Run For Cover.

If you're looking for something to pass the time this afternoon, Noisey has been posting webisodes about the Chicago rap scene, titled "Welcome To Chiraq." Part 5 of the 8 part series features the SaveMoney crew (Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa). Check out all of the episodes on Noisey, or head to the replies. Fair warning: there is language and some drug use, so be cautious if you work for, like, an accounting firm or something.
