We’ve been out of touch. It’s been a crazy few months since SXSW. A quick update for you:

– We gave a van away over SXSW to The Bad Sports from Denton, TX. Upon winning a van filled with music gear they literally drove off to go play a show later that day. Awesome.

– The whole damn site is finally being redeveloped and redesigned for awesomeness. Tons of new features are being added like being able to enter your tour dates and automatically connecting with people in those cities. Plus we adding more features to allow more non-band connections to be made. Like if you’re a music fan and want to go to a festival in Seattle but you live in Madison. Then you too can find a free place to stay. Super sweet, right?

– Better Than The Van Happy Hours return! We did it last summer and we’re gearing up for a few again this year. With one exception…they will be entirely more bad ass this time around. Details are still being hashed out so stay tuned….

– Scott got some chickens and they are living in his backyard. It’s crazy.

Introducing: BTTV – Music and culture distilled

We quietly launch a little magazine after SXSW. It’s filled with show reviews, record reviews, essays, fiction, photography and a ton more.

Brian "Head" Welch

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Drones

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
