NEWS ROUNDUP: 2/13/13

Karin Park, Chvrches, Au Palais and other artists will be holding a non-profit event called FREEDOM in London to mark the one year anniversary since Pussy Riot’s infamous “Punk Prayer” in Moscow. As you probably know, three members of the group were found guilty of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” and sentenced to two years in jail following the performance in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. See the event’s Facebook page for more information on the concert: https://www.facebook.com/events/474135362649184 (We highly recommend Karin Park’s criminally under-rated album Highwire Poetry.)

Paste magazine has made some free Valentine’s Day cards using the lyrics of The Police, Tegan & Sara and four other artists. The catch? They’re creepy lyrics, especially in the context they’re using them in. But it’s kind of funny if you have a twisted sense of humor like us. http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2013/02/6-valentines-cards-to-creep-out-your-loved-ones.html

Paste also has a new track by The Civil Wars with T Bone Burnett, so check that out, too. http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2013/02/the-civil-wars-team-with-t-bone-burnett-for-a-plac.html

Rocklahoma has unveiled the list of artists who’ll be performing at this year’s shindig. Headliners include Guns N’ Roses, Alice In Chains and Korn. Other artists on the bill include Bush, Cheap Trick, Hollywood Undead, Bullet For My Valentine, Papa Roach and more. We’re a little perplexed though — wasn’t Rocklahoma started for hair bands to gather and perform for their fans? Now it seems like it’s just a bunch of bands most of us are tired of hearing already.

    Those Rocklohoma bands ARE the equivalent of todays hair bands. Nu-metal and grunge was 15-20 years ago. We’re old.

      But when it started, Rocklahoma was all bands like Poison, Cinderella, Tesla, etc… Now they seem to have ushered them out in favor of the new bands who are (sort of) in that vein but generally suck.
