Playing the Traveling Groupie with Woodhead & Echo Moth
If I were a Christian, then I would say I was blessed, but I'm not, so I'm going to say I'm lucky instead. I'm lucky to have some amazing friends in my life who also happen to be phenomenal musicians, so when three of those friends flew out from NYC to play a short tour ranging from Tijuana to San Francisco, I was thrilled to fly down from Seattle for both the reunion and the music.
I have written about Woodhead for Culture Catch in the past, the alternative/art rock brainchild of composer Vern Woodhead. I have also had the pleasure of seeing all of Vern's musical manifestations since 1999, but this most recent one is the pinnacle of his accomplishments. Touring with Woodhead were regular band members Yana Davydova (guitar) and Dmitry Ishendko (bass) who were joined for this stretch by drummer Alvaro Nuñez, »

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has released its list of nominees for induction in 2017—meaning it's time once again for rejoicing that some of the world's most meaningful artists are finally (or once again) getting their chance to be honored, while also lamenting that others continue to be overlooked.

"That's how it happened. That's all you missed. That's everything."
It's this sort of pronouncement — delivered by Elliot after he's taken us on a flashback tour of his life behind bars — that should set alarm bells a-ringin' in the mind of any Mr. Robot viewer. There is no bottom to the rabbit hole on this show; and if our man is telling us there is one, it's a sure sign that he's less in control than he thinks he is. And he's definitely not the only one. Last night's episode »
As the season hits its home stretch, Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 9 marks what is sure to be a pivotal installment of the series – and one of the best yet.
"Init 5" was deliciously tense and a welcome return to Elliot after the Elliot-less (but still wonderful) Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 8.
We opened on a rundown of exactly what happened between the end of Mr. Robot Season 1 and Elliot ending up in jail, continuing the ongoing Mr. Robot Season 2 use of flashbacks to fill in gaps between and before what we've seen already. The knock at Elliot's door in the closing moments of the Mr. Robot Season 1 Finale was the police coming to arrest him.
As many had guessed, the crime that landed Elliot in the big house was the hack on Krista's scumbag boyfriend and stealing the guy's dog. Of all the things Elliot has done, it's pretty laughable that this »

Elliot may be walking the streets again in this week’s Mr. Robot… but that doesn’t mean he’s smiling underneath that hoodie.
Ok, fine, Elliot never smiles. But he’s got a lot on his mind just the same. The episode kicked off by flashing back to the end of Season 1, when Elliot heard that knock on his apartment door. Turns out it was the cops, arresting him for hacking his therapist’s sleazy boyfriend and stealing his dog — a dog that cost $1,200, by the way, making the canine theft a felony. So when Elliot pled guilty to »
*We’ve been letting you fright fanatics know more about the Icons of Fright staffers, more specifically the ones who have joined the fold within the last year or so. Since Icons of Fright’s inception (2004!!), the site has had the privilege of having some really great writers and creators and before joining the team, I frequented it quite regularly as a reader, so I thought it would be a fun idea to let you know about the current crop.

Hailing from the Central Valley of California, my love for horror films began in 1982 at the age of eight when, because of curiosity, my father sat me down in front of the original Friday the 13th as both a cruel prank and as an attempt to scare me away from them altogether.

★★★★☆ Once director John Carney returns to his native Dublin for Sing Street, a 1980s-set coming-of-age crowdpleaser with real depth, heart and wit to match its toe-tapping musical beats. Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), a 14-year-old kid who's forced to move from a private school to rowdy public one run by the Christian Brothers when his parents find themselves in financial difficulty. Immediately out of place, Conor is subjected to taunts and attacks by his classmates and teachers. Keen to escape his problems and impress the enigmatic model Raphina (Lucy Boynton) who frequently hangs out across the road, Conor decides to form a band, whose influences range from the Pet Shop Boys to Depeche Mode.

Two thieves tell each other eerie stories to pass the time in Gerard Lough’s Night People, a new anthology film hitting VOD on May 9th. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Lough to discuss the making of his directorial feature film debut.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Gerard. When and how did you first come up with the idea for your new film, Night People?
Gerard Lough: Anthology films were very much a fixture of my childhood at Halloween, as they always seemed to be shown on TV at the time and I always liked the idea of getting three stories for the price of one, each of them with the fat trimmed off, that would hit the ground running. Anthology shows were also very much on the go at that time but seemed to die out, so »

On February 15th, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj will both be returning to the Grammys — and both will be vying to take home their first trophy. Like Patti Smith (one nomination), Nas (11) and Snoop Dogg (17), neither has won a gramophone of his or her own. Here's a rundown of the pop stars, punk icons and rock geniuses whose work has never been recognized by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
Times nominated: 17
As of 2015, Snoop Dogg was tied for first place in the dubious competition to »
Seldom does chance have it that an electronic music producer is as simultaneously celebrated by both seasoned and novice fans of the genre as Erik Prydz is. The Swedish progressive house icon boasts a nearly two-decade career during which his creative process has evolved into one of the most highly regarded sounds on the market, – and with the release of his long-awaited debut album, Opus, it’s no exaggeration to suggest that this time in music belongs to him.
As if the music itself weren’t layered enough, Prydz chose the most enigmatic way imaginable to build up to the album’s release. Over the course of last year’s festival season, he released three EPs titled Pryda Vol. I, II and III – chronologically ordered collections of his music from the previous ten or so years that up until that point had only been available in his live sets. Opus »
