“Pop Pilgrims” is a new video series from The Onion’s AV Club where they are traveling the country visiting pop culture landmarks – sites tied to tv shows, films, songs, books, etc. and then posting videos from their adventures. They visit one city each week and stop at three different pop-culture sites within the city. We are on our 5th city and have 7 more to go! Watch one and join our travels!

We started in Los Angeles and visited:

United Methodist Church from The Graduate and Wayne’s World – http://www.avclub.com/articles/los-angeles-the-graduate-church,56223/


Then we went to San Francisco:
After SF, Memphis was our next stop:

What’s a pop-culture road-trip without New Orleans?

St. Louis Cemetary – Set of Easy Rider’s acid freak-out – http://www.avclub.com/articles/new-orleans-st-louis-cemetery-set-of-easy-riders-a,57033/

Preservation Hall, keeping the history of jazz alive – http://www.avclub.com/articles/new-orleans-preservation-hall-keeping-the-history,57302/
This week, we’re in Austin and we still have 7 more cities to go!

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
