It's been about a month since the controversy surrounding bad-idea song of the decade "Accidental Racist," the duet by Brad Paisley and LL Cool J, exploded all over everyone.
We asked Brad Paisley fans what they thought of "Accidental Racist", now that the dust has settled.
Paisley's on tour now, and last night he arrived at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in suburban St. Louis. Photographer Jon Gitchoff took a quick survey of fans about that song, now that the white-hot heat that only masses of bloggers can create, has cooled.
Most fans liked the song -- "it's an amazing song", "[it's] a truthful song" -- but a few, not so much: "it sucked."More »
Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne performed at Pop's last night to a pacPop'sked house of hip-hop heads, wicked clowns and juggalos. Though the artist is not officially a part of Psychopathic records (Tech N9ne releases records through his own label, Strange Music), the rapid-fire rapper gets a lot of love from that camp, having performed repeatedly at the Gathering of the Juggalos.

St. Louis punks both young and old came out to Lemmons Sunday night for a show benefiting Gerry "Ayatollah of Rock & Rollah" Lundquist, trombonist of local ska-punk heroes MU330 and their Dill Records / Asian Man co-patriots, Skankin' Pickle. Live sets by the Unmutuals, the Scam, the Haddonfields and one-off group Gerry's Kidz (get it?) kept the crowd entertained and raffles from Pabst, Trader Bob's Tattoo and more helped to raise money for Gerry's mounting medical bills. Our own Jason Stoff was in the house snapping pictures; check out the highlights below.
