The lightning and thunder of The Mars Volta fires up Yifat Grizman in Tel Aviv, but it’s openers Le Butcherettes that blow her mind.

Portugal the Man

Event Reviews

For their second trip to Orlando in just three months time, Portugal the Man took a backseat in billing (to Rock Votolato), and quietly appeared as an opener at the same venue that they had previously sold out on their own. Jen Cray was back for a second helping of these Alaska boys.

Fair To Midland

Interviews

Fair To Midland are blessed, and cursed, with the title “the first band to be signed to Serj Tankian’s label.” Jen Cray sat down with vocalist Darroh Sudderth and keyboardist Matt Langley outside of Orlando’s House of Blues just before the second night of their first ever major tour.

Sparta

Event Reviews

When At The Drive In split up, half of the band went on to critical success in The Mars Volta. The other half quietly slipped into a band just as worthy of praise, Sparta. Jen Cray stepped in to pay the band some respect.

System of a Down

Event Reviews

System of a Down fuse rap/metal with bold political opinion, and The Mars Volta are just bold, period. When the two bands tour together you’ve got one hell of a package deal. Jen Cray ignores the politics (mostly) for an unforgettable night.
