Foxygen become rock stars and sound like Todd Rundgren

Foxygen 
It's hard to keep up with the constant drama surrounding Foxygen, but there's no question they were buzz-worthy in 2013. Despite a well publicized meltdown at SXSW last year, the band have just released a new single that sounds suspiciously like an outtake from an early '70s Todd Rundgren album.

Interview: Foreign Fields preps new album

Foreign Fields

Foreign Fields has just finished their second album and is trying out new tunes on a short Midwest tour that will bring them to the East Side Club in Madison on Thursday as part of the Sunset Music Series.

Brian Holl of Foreign Fields talked to us about the new album, his days slumming with Matt from PHOX and what the Nashville music scene has to offer.

Tim and Eric with Dr. Steve Brule

Comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, better known as Tim and Eric, are hitting the road to give us mortal souls a taste of their uncanny, bizarre personalities in person. If you're a fan of Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie or the duo's series on Adult Swim, this will be a show you won't want to miss.

To make things even more insane, all-around goofball Dr. Steve Brule (aka John C. Reilly) will be tagging along with ungodly entertaining DJ Douggpound opening up. Tim & Eric take the art of comedy provocation to a whole new level straddling the fine line between ethereal and juvenile humor. The duo have definitely carved out their own path.
