Julian Casablancas

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz delivered an awesome performance in a filled Corona Theatre on November 22, 2014. The openers, punk metal band Cerebral Ballzy, and hip hop duo Shabazz Palaces, set a good mood for the audience. Shabazz Palaces even performed "Father Electricity" with The Voidz, which was a great mix of hip-rock! The many fans that lined up for the snow earlier that night were ecstatic when Julian took the stage around 10:15. The band opened with "Xerox" off their album Tyranny, released last September on Cult Records.


Devin Townsend Project @ Club Soda

So the Devin Townsend Project was in town on December 1, and I'm sorry to say that if you missed it we are no longer friends. It was way past my bedtime and so I didn't even stay for Animals as Leaders, but you have no excuse. Monday is the new Thursday, after all. In any case, I got what I came for, but now I face a mild dilemma. As the guy who got in trouble a couple months back for overplaying DTP's latest issue Z², it'll be hard for me to write this without it coming off as a love letter, so fuck it. Committing to the form.

Dear Devin Townsend, 

Hevvy Devvy!

Presented by Evenko and Blue Skies Turn Black

A decade later, Death from Above 1979 turn it out at Metropolis

I never thought I'd get to experience a bona fide reunion tour while I was still in my twenties, but if it was going to happen for anyone, it would be Death From Above 1979.

Best Study Locations Near Loyola Campus

Finals are upon us, and for students living and studying primarily at Loyola Campus, it often seems as though downtown gets all the luck in terms of variety of study locales. Luckily for you though, CJLO calls Loyola and NDG it’s home, so we’re here to help you move out of the library and enjoy some of the sights as you hit the books.

Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 2

Mass Appeal Records, 2014

It's a tense time in the world. We are constantly inundated and bombarded by selected news and pop culture controversies with the lines between the two becoming more blurred. It's increasingly hard to tell what's important or to discern when real news descends into just another form of entertainment for those who live to be outraged. Surely, there must be a saviour somewhere in the midst of this chaos, waiting to save us from this madness?
 


Halifax Pop Explosion 2014

Gus' Pub, A Love Story

Over the last few years, I was told numerous times that I would love the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Former and current residents told me it was my kind of town and I should come out some time for a visit.
