Queens of the Stone Age
Queens of the Stone Age Remove performer from this event
It came from the desert. What "it" was, exactly, is still a matter of debate. Are Queensof the Stone Age a band? An association? A concept? The intermittent issue of an unhinged Carlo Von Sexron? The toxic byproduct of other bands? A variously shrinking and expanding group of friends and likeminded visitors? Or a secret society?Whatever kind of strange and terrible mutation slouched out of the irradiated California wasteland in 1996, it's evidently still around....

Ellie Goulding
Ellie Goulding Remove performer from this event
If the singing voice is merely a vehicle for a melody, a means of putting across a verse, a bridge, a chorus, well, somebody forgot to tell Ellie Goulding. As her debut album, Lights, made so thrillingly clear, Ellie uses her voice as a texture in much the same way that a skilled instrumentalist would....

Nine Inch Nails were the most popular industrial group ever and were largely responsible for bringing the music to a mass audience.

The 2Pac references continued with his 2009 mixtapes "Trap-A-Velli" and "All Ice on Me", but 2010's "Me Against the World 2: Codeine Withdrawal" hit his style on the nose with the last bit of its title, and when DJ Teknikz & DJ Frank White collected his best street tracks in 2011, the hard and hazy set of cuts was dubbed "Codeine Cowboy"....

Nov 21, 2007 - rde on The Killers
Somebody told Mr. Brightside

The Killers are one of my currently overplayed iTunes selections. There is something about their "fast paced-narrative" music that just keeps my attention for some reason. I love it!

Nov 14, 2007 - rmk on The Cure
Great Cure cover band

If you like the The Cure then you will love this band. Lots of enrgy and very enthusiastic audiences.

Aug 19, 2007 - AntiCowJuice on The Killers
Electronica or Rock?

Listen to them and find out... Either way, they might be a bit over played sometimes, but they still manage to keep their own unique sound.~

Jul 18, 2007 - mmelmon on The Killers
Maybe they try too hard...

...but it sure is fun to sing along.
