While some spent last Christmas Eve sipping hot cider and buying Santa a Best Buy giftcard, others found themselves enjoying the best gift of all—an early album drop from iconic rap duo Run The Jewels.

Dawes dazzles at Barrymore

The way the painted arches flowed into the midnight blue ceiling scattered with twinkling lights, coupled with the scaffolding’s tight embrace of the stage made Dawes’ performance at the Barrymore Theatre on Monday night feel like a night straight out of an indie film.

McCartney shows little musical growth

When 29-year-old pop singer Jesse McCartney caught his first wave of stardom circa 2004, fangirls followed his every move both in magazines and real life.
