Former members of pioneering post-hardcore band Dag Nasty, including Doug Carrion and Peter Cortner, and former Down By Law guitarist Mark Phillips, have announced plans to play a select number of shows this summer under the under the moniker Field Day, with new music to follow in 2020.
Perhaps the most notorious outcasts of the Dag Nasty franchise to date, Carrion and Cortner performed on Dag Nasty’s landmark recordings 'Wig Out at Denko’s' (Dischord Records) and 'Field Day' (Giant Records), and played some 300 shows throughout the United States and Canada in the late 80’s. These recordings are credited as cornerstones of what was eventually termed melodic hardcore, and inspired new bands like Pennywise and Rise Against.

I don't think I've ever shown my girls a trailer that elicited an "I need to see this!" within maybe three notes of a song... until now. The surprise trailer for a concert film based on Taylor Swift's Reputation Stadium Tour hit the net earlier this week, with the film set to debut as a Netflix exclusive at 12:01am Pacific time on New Year's Eve Day. It'll be a fun way to close the chapter on 2018 as we look ahead into a (hopefully better) 2019. Check this out...
Coming off an epic World Premiere for the film this week, WaterTower Music is making a splash with the release of the AQUAMAN - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Back in the early 2000s, there was a small company here in Illinois that made SMITI action figures - little Kubrick-style versions of bands like Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Powerman 5000, The Offspring and No Doubt. I had a few of the sets and they were pretty fun, but then the maker (Stevenson Entertainment) sorta disappeared. Fast-forward to tonight and I just had a flashback when Japanese toymaker brokker got in touch about their new SEX PISTOLS collection, set for launch in the U.S., UK and Japan in January of 2019. After previously focusing on Japanese bands, this marks brokker's first entry onto the global stage. The SEX PISTOLS set features articulated mini-figures that represent the UK punk icons in their "God Save the Queen" stage gear.
