From the new Tumblr Terms of Service
“You have to be at least 13 years old to use Tumblr. We’re serious: it’s a hard rule, based on U.S. federal and state legislation, even if you’re 12.9 years old. If you’re younger than 13, don’t use Tumblr. Ask your parents for an Xbox or try books.” I love lawyers with a sense of humor.
Friend: On a scale of 1 to 10, how obsessed are you with Harry Potter.
Me: Nine and three quarters
The Joy Formidable: Tell All Your Friends
“Wow, that is the best show I have seen in a really long time,” says my photographer friend Julia, all smiles, at the end of The Joy Formidable’s show this past Tuesday at San Francisco’s Independent. That’s pretty strong praise, because she’s a concert photographer and probably sees two or three bands perform every week in a town known for its vibrant music...
The Pretty Reckless Are Pretty Amazing
If you get to see Taylor Momsen with The Pretty Reckless, I recommend enjoying at least some of the show with your eyes closed. If not, you will be so mesmerised by her surreal beauty that you won’t properly appreciate Ms. Momsens throaty, soulful, Joan-Jett-meets-Pat-Benatar-meet-Bonnie-Raitt blues/rock vocals. So good. The Pretty Reckless performed at The Bottom Of The Hill In San...
The Joy Formidable Meet & Greet
The Joy Formidable are offering a Meet & Greet ticket at many of their cities in their short spring US tour. I got one, and it was great. Here’s how it works. You go to the venue a little early (mine was 4:30 PM at The Independent in San Francisco): Line up with other fans. Chit chat about all the times you’ve seen them and how it’s cool they are getting famous and soon...
Kiss Me Again WATIC / ATL Collaboration →
Great song, but I don’t think the new version is that different from the WATIC original.
THE GUIDE OF ALL GUIDES TO CONCERTS.
fuckyeahjalex: we get a lot of questions on what to wear to shows, or what to expect when going, and all of that. so we’re going to try and make a guide of some sort of help cut down on these questions and hopefully help out a lot of people and all of that. now if you have any suggestions or maybe something you want to argue against or w/e just send us an ask and all of that. a lot of this is...
In winter I get up at night And dress by yellow candle-light. In summer quite the other way, I have to go to bed by day. I have to go to bed and see The birds still hopping on the tree, Or hear the grown-up people’s feet Still going past me in the street. And does it not seem hard to you, When all the sky is clear and blue, And I should like so much to play, To have to go to bed by day? ...
Patrick Stump: WE LIKED YOU BETTER FAT:... →
nervousbreakdance: There’s this really nice piece at underthegunreview.net by Jacob Tender that a friend forwarded me today. It’s about how important Fall Out Boy’s album “From Under the Cork Tree,” was to him. After reading it though, nostalgic and well-written as it was, I really found myself more depressed than… Love all the new stuff. Loved you in Reno with P!ATD. Loved you guys in...

Reblog If You Love Your Ears
If you go to a lot of concerts, you could be blasting out your eardrums. Musicians often use ‘concert ear plugs’ to cut the loud peaks in the most damaging frequencies, while still letting through the music. They also help when that girl next to you is screeching her ears out because her favorite bassist just threw a pick to the audience. I have a set of Etymotic Research plugs, but there are...
Tay Jardine's Liner Notes Made Me Cry
Such a sweet liner note on the We Are The In Crowd album Best Intentions, from Taylor Jardine, who lost her dad in 8 years ago: “I am so lucky to have such an encouraging family behind me… Thank you for believing in me and keeping me grounded. I love you. Dad- If it weren’t for you I’d never share the love for music that you did. Everything I do in music is because of you....

bloodstainedvalentine: I’m too self conscious for this lol If it’s any consolation, my stupid picture of a box from last night has 159 notes. http://martinhardee.tumblr.com/post/18704196194/not-sure-why-but-this-roller-box-is-at-bottom-of I predict yours gets 1,000+
I finally just realized what YOLO stands for.
sorcery-inthetardis: I feel like an idiot for not getting it sooner. I’ve just been over here like, “YOLO? What? I don’t get it. WHAT IS THIS?!” Yes. A county in California near Sacramento which Obviously Lacks Originality. :-)
We Are The In Crowd in San Francisco
A friend and I were at a work party in San Francisco and as luck would have it We Are The In Crowd were playing just nearby. The even better news was that the show was at Bottom Of The Hill, that very small, divey club where you can get really up close with all the bands. To give you an idea, here’s a video of them performing For The Win: The crowd was enthusiastic but (maybe owing to...
Lines Overlapping: Mom Does Warped Tour →
josiecarrie: martinhardee: OK, first of all, let me propose that Mom has more concert chops than you. Mom saw Jimi Hendrix live at Miami Pop. Jimmi-FREAKIN-Hendrix! And Led-FREAKIN-Zeppelin. And Pink-FREAKIN-Floyd. Mom’s seen Sting five times. And The Who. And the Goo Goo Dolls. And Elton three times. And Maroon 5. And… wow thats cool. i wonder if my mom will let me go now Yes, tell her...
