Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is often pegged as a hippie band. It's true that love is a unifying theme to a lot of the group's music, including its hit single "Home." But the band's message doesn't fit inside a box that neatly.

Written by Matt Simpson Siegel | Thursday, 23 May 2013 12:03 |

Nate Bargatze: Patriot, Comedian and Son of a Clown

Written by Josh Spanninga | Thursday, 23 May 2013 11:56 |

Most children grow up with parents whose professions are paradoxically mysterious and boring, with job titles such as "senior project engineer" or "regional manager." Nate Bargatze's dad, however, was in an entirely different league.

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 23 May 2013 11:49 |

Rush has been doing what it does for as long as anyone old enough to possess a driver's license can remember, and then some. Consistent, stellar, outstanding – it makes sense that the Canadian prog-rock superstars would christen their latest tour the "Clockwork Angels Tour," because really, what other gang of dad-rock legends run so reliably and blessedly?

Indie Best Bet: Ra Ra Riot

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 23 May 2013 11:45 |

Any modern sub-culture group described as "baroque pop" has to be a class act, if not a classical act (look at that, a Bach joke!). Without exception, Ra Ra Riot brings heaps of class like you wouldn't believe.
