Check out this great cover of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend”

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

From Danish singer Christopher comes this live, acoustic version of pop diva Robyn’s Top 40 hit “Call Your Girlfriend.” We can’t get enough! Of course, the original song being so fantastic doesn’t hurt.

For reference, here’s the original.

Who do you think does the song better? Does Robyn’s synth-pop beat out the mellowness of Christopher’s version? Let us know in the comments below!

Remember, for current tour dates and ticket information, check out the Robyn page on ShowTimeTickets.com.

New Mars Volta album info leaked!

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala are having a busy year. Their original band, At The Drive-In, has returned for a series of wildly popular shows, and now details of their upcoming album as side project The Mars Volta have leaked.

Set to release in 2012, the new Mars Volta album is apparently titled Noctourniquet, a combination of the words “nocturne” (a musical composition inspired by the night) and “tourniquet,” a type of bandage used to control bleeding.

Album art is shown as well (although difficult to see behind the reflection of the person snapping the picture): what looks like a pattern of circles over a gradient at a 45-degree angle which somewhat resembles the Earth’s horizon at sunset.

Expect new tour dates from Omar, Cedric, and company–both as At The Drive-In and as The Mars Volta. Stay tuned for information on dates and tickets!

Pearl Jam’s new song is available for free.

Friday, September 9th, 2011

After a couple of decades of sold-out arena shows, Pearl Jam have stretched the definition of the term “alternative.” It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t know who they are, and of those people, it’s harder still to find someone who doesn’t enjoy hits like “Even Flow.”

The band is touring now, with a show at Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum scheduled for September 25th. In the mean time, download their new track, “Ole,” here.
