See Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons and the Roots’ Super Bowl Shows – livestream direct from Bud Light Hotel in New York City

The Super Bowl hits New York this weekend and there’s way more music coming to the Big Apple beyond Bruno Mars’ halftime spectacular: Bud Light is bringing three nights of concerts to an aircraft carrier stationed on the Hudson River. Even better news: You can watch highlights from all the shows right here.

Visit this very page Thursday night to catch the Roots, who are leading a program they’ve dubbed “The Roots Present Hip-Hop NYC,” which features appearances by Run-DMC, Busta Rhymes and more. On Friday, Best Rock Performance Grammy winners Imagine Dragons will perform with Walk the Moon. And on February 1st, Foo Fighters will play their first New York show since 2012 (following their very short hiatus) with Zac Brown Band.

Pearl Jam’s Concert @ Madison Square Garden, NYC

Pearl Jam’s concert @ Madison Square Garden

New York City –

Eddie Vedder may be a good decade and a half older than when he used to stage dive at Lollapalooza – but Eddie and the rest of the Pearl Jam’s members can still pull a crowd!

A crowd reminiscing about the new-fashion retro decade 1990’s put on their best ripped up flannel and tattered Converse All Stars and headed to The Madison Square Garden a year and a half ago to hear the great American band rock out with over 30 songs, including two encores. Pretty impressive for self-confessed alt-rockers.

Jeremy, Alive, State of Love and Trust, Do The Evolution, Even Flow – all the angsty hits were there as the crowd had a massive sing along, with cigarette lighters having been replaced with the ever present lit up cell phones.

Eddie himself seems to have subdued in his more middle-aged years singing to his wife in the crowd. Back in the old grunge days a sign of a romantic union was more likely to be matching heroin addictions, oh, how times have changed.

Spotted attempting to mosh in the crowd: actor Matt Damon and film director Michael Moore.

It was a great concert, one that proved that Pearl Jam and its outspoken luminous frontman have been and still are one of the most popular American rock & roll bands of all times, in spite of “the chaos that ensued soon-after being catapulted into superstardom,” forcing them “to step back from the spotlight with the instinct of self-preservation, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them — giving way to a work culture that would sustain them.” Pearl Jam have outlasted many of their contemporaries from the alternative rock breakthrough of the early 1990s, and are considered one of the most influential bands of the last decade.

Here are some pictures taken at the Garden concert:

The Rolling Stones are still planning a run of 50th anniversary shows, but now the group’s touring saxophonist Bobby Keys says the Stones will play more than the supposed Brooklyn and London dates, Billboard reports. Keys said the band is “gonna do some more concerts, starting in November with two in England and then a couple here in the States, then there’s a few added concerts after that. Keith [Richards] told me a couple months ago there was something in the wind and just be ready to go. I’m waiting for them to send me the plane ticket and the information, and then I’ll go.”

Keys said there’s a feeling of finality to plans for a round of anniversary shows. “The reality is this train is going to pull into the last station pretty soon – I don’t know how soon,” he said. “I’ve been saying this since 1980, but I feel like it’s kind of winding down. This may be sort of the ‘Sayonara, see you later, had a good time, keep in touch.’ I don’t know that for sure. I haven’t officially been told anything. . . I just take my cue primarily from what Keith says, so we’ll have to see.”

In a recent interview with Q magazine, Richards seemed sure of the London and Brooklyn shows. “We’ve got some shows in London, I believe, and in New York, but I really can’t talk about any of that at the moment,” he said. “They’ve put the gag on me on this. You can hint!”

In August, Rolling Stone learned the band is planning two shows at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center before the end of the year. The shows would coincide with other anniversary plans this fall, including the Rolling Stones’ career retrospective documentary Crossfire Hurricane, which will air on HBO on November 15th. The band will also release a new greatest hits collection, GRRR

Gojira Frontman Joe Duplantier Talks ‘L’Enfant Sauvage,’ Randy Blythe + More

Loudwire

Gojira are certain to go down as one of 2012′s hardest hitting metal acts. Having built a hardcore underground following since the release of various demos in the late ’90s, along with their 2001 debut, ‘Terra Incognita,’ Gojira were absolutely ready to explode into one of modern metal’s biggest bands with their Roadrunner Records debut, ‘L’Enfant Sauvage.’

As ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ hit the shelves on June 26, the record was met with unanimous praise and has been viewed by many as the single-most exciting metal album of the year so far. Shortly after Gojira’s crushing set at the Heavy MTL festival, we were able to sit down with frontman Joe Duplantier to speak about the success of ‘L’Enfant Sauvage,’ the band’s canceled tour with Dethklok and Lamb of God, Duplantier’s views on Randy Blythe‘s incarceration + much more.
