Watch Lana Del Rey slide some waves and roll some back alleys in her new song F*ck It I Love You. For real. It’s good like a Madewell ad.

Monday Morning Music: Bob Mould

by The Editors on February 4, 2019

Who better to expose the surveillance state than Bob Mould with Lost Faith.

“There’s a hint of migration, a dash of border security and a whisper of government surveillance, climaxing across the multicolored canvas of an abandoned NSA listening station perched atop the highest hill in Berlin,” Bob told NPR. “But at the end of the day, it’s a high-end music video for a catchy, inspirational, uplifting pop song.”

Agreed.

The Burton US Open Turns 37

by The Editors on January 31, 2019

Even though we said the US Open of Snowboarding would never be the same after leaving Stratton Mountain (it wasn’t always at Vail) the event Jake Burton Carpenter created and continues to underwrite remains “the longest-running event in competitive snowboarding.” For 2019 it runs from February 25 through March 2, 2019 and will feature $373,000 in prize money? Which is a pretty nice cash inflow for snowboarders when you think about it.

As part of the world’s greatest snowboard event, the Burton U·S·OPEN features the Burton Concert Series, including four nights of FREE musical performances by breakout artists and DJs. . . .The five-day event is also a hub for fun FREE events, demos, and activities for the entire family, including the addition of a new Banked Slalom race open to the public February 28th through March 2nd.

And that’s not even counting the snowboarding competition. For the long list of acts who will be playing free shows at Vail during the Open click here (Sidenote: don’t miss Khruangbin). For all the official details about this Colorado snowboard-polooza please follow the jump.

Burton Expanding Into Live Entertainment

by The Editors on January 17, 2019

Following on the heels of House of Vans and Apple’s “Town Squares” concept comes Burton Snowboards hopes to create an entertainment hub in a new space that has become available at its global headquarters in Burtonton, Vermont, according to a story in Seven Days Vermont.

Burton Snowboards wants to repurpose warehouse space at its global headquarters in Burlington for an entertainment hub anchored by an 8,000-square-foot concert venue. . . Justin Worthley, the company’s senior vice president of human resources, envisions food and beer options that would complement the band space and turn the South End campus into a destination for visitors.

Beer is always important. Lots and lots of beer. Because drunk people are the best. Sadly, Burton will first have to get the zoning changed, as music venues are only allowed on Burlington’s Pine Street and must be under 5,000 square feet. Party on, Burlington.

Tony Hawk Making Moves on Broadway

by The Editors on January 17, 2019

Tony Hawk is reportedly joining a project to turn Nick Hornby’s book Slam into a Broadway musical, according to Broadway News, because now days every artistic, branded entertainment vehicle needs to be set to music — thank you Lin-Manuel. If you haven’t read the book (and you should) here’s the jist:

“Slam” follows Sam, a teenager with a troubled home life, as he finds out that his girlfriend Alicia is unexpectedly pregnant. He imagines having conversations with Hawk as a way of finding his way through the situation. Though the novel is set in London, the musical will be resetting the story in the U.S.

Skateboarding’s favorite musician Mark Motherbaugh is writing the music and Kyle Jarrow (of Spongebob Squarepants musical fame) will write “the book.” Tony will reportedly create some “skate choreography” for the project and we’ll all be humming along when it comes out.

Maximum Rocknroll Quits Print

by The Editors on January 15, 2019

Seriously. This is something we never thought would happen. And it has pretty much nothing to do with snowboarding, surfing, and even skateboarding. But, the dirty, inky, packed punk rawk ‘zine Maximum Rocknroll is shutting down their presses after 42 years (and 400 issues) covering DIY punk and hardcore music. We probably haven’t read it in 20 years, but it’s still kind of of sad (maybe not to Green Day). Here’s MMR’s explanation.

It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the end of Maximum Rocknroll as a monthly print fanzine. There will be three more issues of the fanzine in its current format; later in 2019 we will begin publishing record reviews online alongside our weekly radio show. Readers can look forward to more online content, updates regarding the archive project initiated in 2016, and other yet-to-be-announced MRR projects, as well as new ways for punks around the world to get involved. We will be having a public meeting at 2:00pm on Sunday, January 20 at the MRR compound to discuss the future — please write mrr@maximumrocknroll.com for details.

Seriously? Who looks forward to online content these days? Anyone? Thought not. Guess it’s almost time to get inky again.

Nixon + Metallica = Time To Rock Out

by The Editors on August 28, 2018

Nixon has announced a collab with a band from the 90s called Metallica on an eight watch collection that was “born of long-shared mutual respect for upstarts who buck the system and wind up changing it for good.” The watches, which will be available on November 5, 2018, feature band logos, scary crosses, lightning bolts, and even some Pushead art. If you need a wrist watch that tells time, and love throwing up those horns to the soundtrack of your youth, then this just may be your collection. Click the link for more.
