Jamaica Plain's resident sad boy Dylan Ewen knows how to get emotional in the grooviest way possible. The BUFU Records jack-of-all-trades often croons about the perils of heartbreak, failure, and boredom in the most blunt way possible, which, in some misery-loves-company type of way, ends up translating into some pretty sweet party music.

Ralph from UK act To Kill A King is fond of playing live with his friends 15 floors up in his flat in London. Unfortunately, he couldn't fit all of his guests on the balcony for a recent performance of "Choices."

Sweet Cheeks Q is not only the home of some ballin' biscuits and authentic BBQ, it's also the home to Tiffani Faison - Bravo's "Top Chef" contestant extraordinaire.

With that off my chest, I must now spoil for you the fact that nobody really likes Shark Week all that much anymore either, but it's a cool thing to pretend to get all excited about every year except when someone tells you to "live every week like it's Shark Week," which doesn't really make any sense at all.

A Google search on “Yoko Ono” will take you to what many Twitter and Reddit users are hastily declaring the “Worst Performance of All Time.” A little over a week ago, Ono made it to the stage of UK music festival Glastonbury 2014 with indie rock group Yo La Tengo, and opted to squeal her way through 1969 track “Don’t Worry, Kyoko.” More
