Who are the biggest Inglourious Basterds in Rock?

Posted by teibs On August - 27 - 2009

igb 300x300 Who are the biggest Inglourious Basterds in Rock?@Zack Teibloom Updated 7:10 p.m. 8/31.

LAST CHANCE TO ENTER

I’m starting the judging now, but Iggy Pop and The Sex Pistols are the obvious front-runners. They’re currently doing lines off the runner-up’s backs. Think you know a bigger basterd?!

Send me your paragraph of who the biggest Inglourious Basterds in rock music history are by 8 p.m. central and you take the prize.

I want the most rampant bunch of scalping sons of bitches you can find. I want videos of them being bat-shit crazy. Dig deep. I want my Basterds!

Prize: A vinyl 7” single of David Bowie’s “Cat People (Putting Out The Fire)”  from The Inglourious Basterds soundtrack w/ b-side of Nick Perito “The Green Leaves of Summer.”

You have until Monday (8/31) at 8 p.m. central to e-mail your response to Zack@festivalcrashers.com

Listen to the song you’ll win here

And see Inglourious Basterds and check out the soundtrack. It’s the only movie I’ve seen this summer besides “500 Days of Summer” that is a must-see. I’m not just saying that because we got giveaways for both movies.*

*Bruno went too far, Funny People should have never tried to add in that relationship with Leslie Mann, Away We Go was fantastic, but the third act fell flat, The Goods was actually pretty damn funny, but retarded and I haven’t seen District 9 yet.

Pearl Jam @ United Center 8/23/09

Posted by shore On August - 25 - 2009

pearljamchicago Pearl Jam @ United Center 8/23/09 @AndyShore The debate for the biggest rock band of my generation cannot take place without Pearl Jam being considered. Dave Grohl may be the biggest rocker, but he split that time with two bands. U2 could be considered, but do you really want to? Bands like Dave Matthews Band and Phish should get some mention, but in terms of flat out rock and roll, they do not compete. Pearl Jam has withstood the test of time, has one of the most iconic front men of the last 20 years in Eddie Vedder and one of the best guitar players around in Mike McCready. After their epic three-hour show at Bonnaroo 2008, I couldn’t wait to see them again. Read the rest of this entry »

Blink 182 @ First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre

Posted by shore On August - 25 - 2009

blinkfirstmidwest Blink 182 @ First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre @AndyShore If you grew up around the same time as I did, Blink 182 was practically unavoidable. You may say now that you weren’t that into them, but when “All the Small Things” comes on, you know every word. I could try to take the defense that I started listening to these guys long before I was a college educated student of music, but I’m not ashamed.

Blink 182 was probably the most popular band of my early high school years for straight males (hello Backstreet Boys/’N SYNC). In fact, seeing Blink 182 live was sort of like time traveling back to 2000. Read the rest of this entry »

Fall Out Boy @ First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre

Posted by shore On August - 25 - 2009

fobblink Fall Out Boy @ First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre @AndyShore Every single person that knows me questioned that fact I was seeing Fall Out Boy. @MattSilver even thought twice about extending the invite for the ticket, knowing my distaste for FOB. There is no chance I would have sat through them, if not for the promise of Blink 182 after. So how do I feel after seeing my first Fall Out Boy concert? Like their fans are the lowest common denominator of music fan. Read the rest of this entry »

Panic! at the Disco @ First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre

Posted by shore On August - 25 - 2009

patdblink Panic! at the Disco @ First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre @AndyShore The fanbase for Panic! at the Disco was already segmented before their recent split. The release of Pretty Odd left the band with three different groups of fans. There were the ones that only liked the first album, the ones that were exclusively into the second album and some that enjoyed both. I was interested to see which fan group would attach themselves to the 50% new version of P!atD. Due to horrendous issues getting to the parking lot at First Midwest Band Amphitheatre, @MattSilver and I were walking to our seats as the band launched into “Time to Dance.” Read the rest of this entry »

Ezra Furman About to Burst with New Songs

Posted by teibs On August - 22 - 2009

ezralolla2 300x225 Ezra Furman About to Burst with New Songs@ZackTeibloom Ezra Furman rubbed his neck with a strained expression on his face as his manager told me new permanent band mate Andrew Langer would be doing most of the talking. Furman had played his first Lollapalooza that morning and had an after show at House of Blues later that night.

Even though Ezra says his least favorite part of playing shows is banter and his manager told him not to talk much during this interview, he talks up a storm on stage and chatted me up during the interview. That’s just how he operates.

Was Chasing the Festival Crasher Dream Worth it?

Posted by teibs On August - 15 - 2009

festivaldream 300x199 Was Chasing the Festival Crasher Dream Worth it?@ZackTeibloom It all came into perspective last night. Chasing down the Festival Crasher lifestyle without money or a plan for the last few months finally came to the inevitable head everyone but me saw coming. As great as it’s been, I’ve been stranded and I’ve been stuck between rock and a hard place, but I’ve never had the perfect storm like last night. Let me bring you up to speed.

Phish @ Toyota Park (Bridgeview, IL) 8/11/09

Posted by shore On August - 14 - 2009

phishtoyotapark Phish @ Toyota Park (Bridgeview, IL) 8/11/09 @AndyShore Phish coming back to touring could have gone one of two ways. One, they could have come back like the boxer warned not to fight past his prime. The one where everyone sees how terrible he is now when he gets dropped unceremoniously in the first round. The other way, the way that they did go, is to come back and remind the world why you were once on top. Phish showed why they are one of the touring heavyweight champions of the world Tuesday night at Toyota Park. At least standing in G.A. for my first full concert since injuring my ankle made me feel like I’d just gone 12 rounds. Read the rest of this entry »
