Come one, come all and step right up to an end and a beginning in the Madison art community. Well, not so much an end as a hiatus and a move, and perhaps more of an introduction than a start.

Falling in love with a musician happens to me on practically a weekly basis. When you’re in an audience and looking up at a stage being sprayed by the sweat of a band’s lead guitarist literally buckling to his knees under the weight of his own wailing, musical angst or staring with puppy-dog eyes at a crooning female vocalist whose presence, though physically small, seems to take up the entire venue, it’s kind of difficult not to.
Make no mistake, Saul Williams’ latest book, “Chorus” is NOT your average anthology.
Just in time for day one of last week’s Republican National Convention, the Obama administration announced its finalized plans for fuel efficiency regulations on American car manufacturers.
Music festivals that require me to camp quickly fall into a pattern—wake up with the sun, party, pass out, repeat—so let me save you from my sweaty soliloquy surrounding waking and fast forward to the Forest’s finest. (Oh em gee, alliteration overload, sorry not sorry.)
I would say it’s a jungle out here, but I suppose it’s technically a forest. Nonetheless, survival skills are a must if you want to be able to navigate your way through the flashing lights, tripping kids and hoards of half-naked hula hooping girls that compose this psychopsilocybin society in Rothbury, Mich.
If introductions were not so simple and I were a shy person, standard reasoning might lead me to believe 90% of the general Electric Forest crowd’s parents named their children “Bro.”
Beyond the Canadian accents made quite clear when speaking the word about (read: a-boot), Montreal band Plants and Animals have a quirky personality—offsetting their laidback, jamming folk-rock flow—to offer fans that come to their show at The Frequency on Saturday, May 12. In fact, lead singer and guitarist Warren Spicer told The Daily Cardinal how much a great audience can sometimes make or break a show.
Thousands flocked to Bassnectar’s performance at The Alliant Energy Center last April, and it seems this year’s audience will turn out an even bigger crowd for bass head Lorin Ashton’s auspiciously timed Friday the 13th show.
During his stop in Madison, London-based DJ Aaron Jerome—the man behind the mask of SBTRKT (pronounced “subtract”)—will let his music speak for itself.
The White Rabbits’ latest album Milk Famous might not sound the same as their previous work but according to pianist and singer Stephen Patterson’s father; this is not such a bad thing when it comes to making quality music.
One week has passed since major electronic producer Diplo took our Mad City by storm, and now that everyone has had time to clean themselves up, we bring to you The Daily Cardinal’s interview with openers Chiddy Bang, the Philadelphia duo who set the stage for a memorable Tuesday.
When children start orchestra programs during fifth grade in Madison area public schools, demographics usually match those of the classrooms. However, by the time students are playing in high school, diversity in music programs is nearly nonexistent.
Sometimes doing what you love takes work, and there might not be a better example of the pursuit of happiness than lead guitarist for The Features, Matt Pelham.
First things first: It is imperative that all quotes in this article are read in an adorable Wales/British accent in an attempt to come close to mimicking the deceptively small and cute Ritzy Bryan, front woman and lead guitarist of The Joy Formidable.
In the nearly-85-degree heat of the day, we decided it was only fair to dance to some astro-pop beach rock music under some trees in a backyard at the Brooklyn Vegan showcase. Enter, Django Django, a Jestons-meets-Beach-Boys threesome that is perfect for summer jamming. Afterwards we caught Tennis, a band whose frontwoman gives female rockers a good name. Her simultaneously strong and soothing vocals are the perfect compliment to the danceable rock group at her back.
Great bass is like great sex—the intense, rhythmic build up eventually comes to an immensely gratifying release in the drop. Lucky for our libidos, there was plenty of bass to go around last night during the shows of AraabMUZIK and Machinedrum. Machinedrum performed in the sweaty basement of a dive bar, and we have never seen a crowd respond so passionately: if you are a fan of dubstep or dropping it low, he is a must-listen.
After a resonating experience in an opening slot for Bassnectar in 2010, Emancipator—real name Doug Appling—will return to Madison to headline a night at the Majestic Theater this Thursday, Feb. 16.
Taking a nip of Jack Daniel's you feel the warmth spread down your throat and slowly seep across your chest. A slight grin flexes in your cheek muscles and maybe a gentle sigh keeps it company.
Taking a break from wrapping up the final track of his forthcoming EP—and whilst gathering sustenance at a Whole Foods in Indiana—long-time music producer Alex Botwin expressed his excitement for Paper Diamond's Madison debut this Thursday.
