Kevin Seconds Stays Young 'Till He Dies In Spite of Knee Injury

Categories: Interviews

Anyone who's seen the videos from 7 Seconds' recent European tour won't be surprised to hear that Kevin Seconds, the band's singer, is nursing a bum knee. At 53, Seconds can still perform his duties as head of one of the longest-running punk bands going today, but by his own admission it's not as easy as it once was.

The Gathering of the Juggalos' Night Court Helps Wicked Clowns Bury the Hatchet

Nate "Igor" Smith
A young juggalo faces the punishment for his crimes.
Those in the outside world tend to view the Gathering of the Juggalos as a lawless festival of debauchery, with apparently violent clowns -- "gang members," even, if you ask the U.S. government -- running rampant and chaos ruling the day.

In actuality, this notion is far from the truth. Juggalos in attendance not only consistently treat one another with respect, but they even have an institutionalized arbiter of disputes for when conflict does arise.

Have an issue with a fellow juggalo? Take them to Juggalo Night Court.

The Feed and the Sun and the Sea Prepare for Dual Billing at Blueberry Hill

Categories: Live and Local


St. Louis bands The Feed and The Sun and the Sea couldn't be more different. The Feed jumps genres from song to song but retains a bluesy growl and ferocity no matter if they're playing punk, noisy psychedelic or straight-up pop-rock. The Sun and the Sea generally stays within its own polished indie-rock confines but adds plenty of twinkly riffs and heart-racing drum fills that stay with you long after the music ends.

But man, do the bands complement each other. And, uh, compliment, each other.

A memorial for Mikey Teesdale gets underway today at 4 p.m. at Plush.
The St. Louis music scene suffered a loss this week with the passing of Gregory Michael "Mikey" Teesdale, the sound engineer at Plush. Teesdale first arrived in St. Louis prior to the 2012 opening of the midtown concert venue and restaurant. Teesdale also spent several years working for Plush's sister site in Tucson, Arizona, before moving here.

Plush owner Maebelle Reed says Teesdale, 29, was perhaps best known for his determination and his easy-going demeanor.

Will there be dancing at Riverfront Times' first ever beer-and-barbecue bash, Q and Brew in the Lou? Well, consider this: Attendees will have the opportunity to sample beers from more than twenty craft breweries and there will be music.

But not just any music, folks. Dance music courtesy of two bands so hip-swayin' they have the word "dance" in their name. Legit.
