The Sad Sam Blues Jam is three women out of Bloomington competing for the chance to play at Madison Square Garden. Sisters Sadie and Sam Johnson perform with Kaiya Grundmann and Jacob Gates to create soul-stirring blues. They're competing for a slot at the Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden. Find out more here.


The Misfits - no stranger to legal battles, lineup juggling and general punk nonsense - have announced their first live album since the '80s. Titled Dead Alive, this album looks like it leave Glen Danzig out completely (which is a bummer), but still will feature some songs we know and love. Catch up on the Misfits' history here.

Here's the official press release statement on the track list:

The diverse set of modern day Misfits classics included range from current hits like "Land of the Dead" and "Curse of the Mummy's Hand", on through all-new live versions of earlier-era material like "Scream!", "Dig Up Her Bones", "Helena" and more - recorded live, with a level of precision and intensity garnered in over three decades of horror business. In addition to 13 fiendish favs from the band's cryptic catalog, the live set also includes a cover version of the anthem "Science Fiction/Double Feature" (from the cult-classic "Rocky Horror Picture Show") performed by the Misfits for the first time ever on any release

The first vinyl pressing will feature 1,500 solid gold records.

Justin Timberlake shuts down his haters who are mad he hasn't put out music for a while with this new vid.

"I'm Ready" - Justin Timberlake

"I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."

Yes, that could only be Beyonce, who announced yesterday that Destiny's Child would release new, original music for the first time in eight years, released on Jan. 29 of this year. All hail Queen B.

  • NUVO at 25: Indy's music scene in 25 more years

    We've spent a lot of time in this issue talking about what's been up with NUVO and Indianapolis in the last 25 years. When we started putting everything together, I couldn't help but wonder (Carrie Bradshaw-style), what do young musicians want to happen in the next 25 years. So, I asked them.
