Katy Perry
L.A.-based singer/songwriter Katy Perry's debut album, "One Of The Boys," will be released by Capitol Records June 17th. Perry will also join the traveling rock circus that is the 2008 Vans Warped Tour, for the entire trek this summer.

One of the Boys is a sharp and witty pop-rock gem filled with candid tales of neurotic ex-boyfriends ("Hot N Cold," "Ur So Gay", "Mannequin"), crazy road trips with friends ("Waking Up in Vegas"), and figuring out who you are along the way (first single "I Kissed A Girl," "Fingerprints"). While the album displays Perry's feisty, girl-power swagger, it al...

For the duo's recent limited edition UK single, "Great DJ," a Single of the Week in the NME, The Ting Tings recycled old 7" singles, inverted the covers and relabeled the ...

Concert Review: Marilyn Manson & Ours At The Orpheum Theater

January 28th, 2008 11:32am EST
Marilyn Manson
I attended the Marilyn Manson Concert on Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston because one of my favorite bands, Ours, was the opening act. I had never been to the Orpheum before but it's a fairly large venue, and thankfully they allow you to drink at your seats now (years ago they didn't).

Ours only played a few songs, some new ones off their upcoming Album 'Mercy' ("Willing," "Mercy," etc.) and some old songs off their previous albums ("Realize," "Fallen Souls") so I was happy they did a mix of both new and old stuff.

I was so glad that the crowd was much more acc...
