[TO DO] Win Tickets To See Motörhead In LA 8/22 By Guessing The Wolfpack’s Favorite Songs

  Usually for these contests we just ask you guys to tweet us something moderately amusing in a fill-in-the-blank scenario and while that’s been fun and all (some of you are kind of funny, we guess), we’re going to change it up for this particular give-away. If you want to see Motörhead live in LA...

[CULT TALK] Matt “Manface” McCormick

  I don’t think this interview with Matt “Manface” McCormick needs much by way of introduction, but I do want to drop in a few things about the 28 year old artist that might surprise you: He’s a pretty big book nerd whose favorite book is The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (he’s also the...

Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Wax Idols. Last week: Milk Music.

[CULT TALK] Artist Ariana Papademetropoulos

  I found Ariana Papademetropoulos’ paintings on Instagram. Someone in my feed posted a few pictures from the opening of her show “Wallflower at the Orgy” of some of her fluid, florid scenes – creeping watery shapes blooming from dining rooms and bedrooms, ghostly white forms swirling inside a flower wreath; they had an uncanny,...

[CULT TALK] Guantanamo Baywatch Just Want You To Put It In A Bag And Twist It

Most people don’t usually take “party bands” too seriously except, well, when they want to party. Those people have yet to meet Guantanamo Baywatch. These guys have been giving rock ‘n’ roll fans what they want since they dove head-first into the scene about five or so years ago. Guantanamo Baywatch was one of the first...

Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a 7 Questions interview with a band playing the fest. First up: Screaming Females.  You know those days when you wake up feeling like you’re buried under a thick layer of very finely ground sand, and you would get up, if it wasn’t for...

[WORKING GIRL] Artist Emma Kohlmann

Working Girl is our new segment in which we talk to women about their work.  Our latest subject is Emma Kohlmann, short-hair-of-my-dreams-haver. The New York bred painter and multi-media artist creates work that is abstract and hyper-sexual, visceral and beautiful, and inherently feminist. Kohlmann’s work is fine art in the streets and punk in the streets: the...

[CULT TALK] Jerry Hsu Isn’t Really Trying To Make You Sad With His Photos, That’s Just His Gift

I don’t feel like writing an intro to this Jerry Hsu interview because I’m hungry and tired and because Jerry talks a lot so this interview is already really long, but I will mention that Wikipedia says that Jerry was a child prodigy of dark slides, and for about three hours one day it said...
