King of Rock and Rollers

The making of Dick Clark and the breaking of Alan Freed

By Louis Nayman
When rock and roll trailblazers Alan Freed and Dick Clark were called to testify about payola in 1960, it ended one man’s career and managed to boost the other’s.

Aural Fixation

Pride-Time Disco Nap

Ten mellow, bittersweet, gay songs

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Pride can be exhausting—perhaps you need a disco nap?

Go ahead and make a cup of chamomile and take a break from the shimmer and feathers and accelerated BPMs with this relaxed mix of songs sung by gay men.

Flyer on the Wall

Bloodletting

If you like your gay on the Rob Halford end of the sonic spectrum, Leeches of Lore, Boar Worship, Fando and Contortionist are here to fill the void of distortion, aggression and medieval/occult imagery. Note that this show isn’t an official part of Pride. It just happens concurrently Downtown at Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Saturday, June 30, at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5. (JCC)

EVENT HORIZON (Saturday, Aug 27)

(quiet) Night Out

SuperGiant • Russian Girlfriends • rock, punk • Lilah Rose • pop, electronic • Rueben Krussick

By Megan Reneau
What's better than unplugging from social media? A lot of things, honestly. For example, Low Spirits is hosting an Unplugged Night this coming Saturday, Aug. 27, where musicians who normally rely on electronics (whether that's a MIDI board or guitar) perform, well, unplugged. Local favorites Joel and Jeremy from SuperGiant, Adam Hooks from Russian Girlfriends, Rueben Krussick of WholeHearted and Lilah Rose will be performing. Doors open at 8pm and tickets will be sold for $5 at the door. See? You don't have to get crazy to enjoy less technology in life.
