Upstate favorites the Goo Goo Dolls finally bring their long-anticipated ninth album to Syracuse
If everything had gone according to plan, the Goo Goo Dolls would have been showing off tracks from their latest album, Something For the Rest of Us, last September. A decision to push the release date back, however, led the group to mix, edit and re-record the songs and produce a freshly polished album. The band hits the OnCenter in Syracuse Tuesday night as part of its extensive nationwide tour to promote that release.
The Canadian indie rock giants kicked off their fall tour with a powerful live show.
Stars frontman Torquil Campbell raised his plastic cup to the crowd with a smirk as he sauntered onto the stage at Rochester’s Water Street Music Hall Wednesday night. Someone needs to find out what was in that cup.
The producer and celebrity DJ will bring his hip-grinding beats to Schine on October 11.
Whether you know it or not, you’ve already seen him: in the video game NBA 2K9, perhaps, or next to Lindsay Lohan at a DJ booth. He’s made the rounds with his sister, actress and model Devon Aoki, and guest-starred – as the DJ, naturally – in the video for Cobra Starship’s “Send My Love to the Dancefloor, I’ll See You in Hell.”
The folk-rock stand-bys ranted and roared to an adoring crowd at yesterday's Westcott Theater performance.
Let’s get something out in the open right now: the accordion is sexy. I thought so before last night’s performance of Canada’s Great Big Sea, and now I’m ready to challenge anyone who tells me otherwise. It’s the one instrument that rock bands avoid, and the one instrument that can get people on the dance floor without any persuading.
Review: One-time stars rocked an uncomfortably screamo sound at their Lost Horizon show.
Ronnie Winter has the voice, lyrics and hair of a radio rock god. However, his band’s screamo-filled performance at The Lost Horizon Sunday night proved that The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus won’t make it back on the airwaves anytime soon.
Lost Horizon general manager and local scene-booster Scott Dixon now has 2,000 bookings to his name.
Scott Dixon walked onto The Lost Horizon’s stage on Saturday like it was any other night. Relaxed and clad in a black sweatshirt and shorts, he introduced the first act, Mike Roy, and casually mentioned that the local musician has played 43 shows for him.
Forty-three isn’t a lot of shows to Dixon -- he’s booked 2,000 over the course of his career.
Review: The iconic indie pop duo inspired singing, dancing and crowd adoration at their second Syracuse show.
Brooklyn-based dance punks Matt & Kim know how to draw a crowd — and make them happy. Before the doors opened at the Westcott Theater on Wednesday night, youngsters sat along the sidewalk waiting to get in.
After seven years and several near misses, Juice Jam sells out once again.
At noon, a buzzing mob of 80 students, some sharing headphones, some giddily squealing for Passion Pit and Lupe Fiasco, crowded onto two well-worn yellow school buses at the College Place bus stop. The most aggressive ones pushed and shoved their way into seats – the rest were left behind in the early afternoon drizzle, wondering if the semester’s biggest campus concert was about to start without them.
