Derek Yeager will join Sine Nomine for one final show February 6.

When we spoke to Derek Yeager in September, he had just released Nausicaa Sound, a compilation in collaboration with the global Juke and Footwork communities. Now Yeager is returning to Sine Nomine, his metalcore group formed in the late '90s. In 2013, he put the band on hold to focus on writing and producing electronic music under the name D-M-Y. The change wasn't entirely his choice -- as it turns out, sixteen years of guitar shredding doesn't help with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Speedy Ortiz celebrated its three-year anniversary this past weekend.

This year alone, Massachusetts quartet Speedy Ortiz has played more festivals around the world than most bands have in their entire careers. And although the group hasn't had a chance to come through St. Louis in 2014, its four members just sent $1,000 to the Ferguson Public Library. What started as an Internet freebie for Black Friday quickly turned into a brief yet effective fundraising campaign. The story unfolded on Facebook over the weekend.
