Motel Motel, BM Linx and some other stuff

What happened last night?

First, Luke from The Vanguard and I took my sweet van to Mercury Lounge to catch Motel Motel.


Fresh off their tour of Egypt…


Despite the politically incorrect comments (hilarious) and the Islamic grammar lessons, Motel Motel played an amazing set. I noticed Eric played more guitar than usual and the elongated bridges and tempo changes made every song sound brand new.



Unfortunately we had to leave before These United States to catch our friends BM Linx at Crash Mansion. Luckily the show was running behind schedule and we were able to see The Hot Rods and the longest mic cord on earth.



Finally, post midnight, BM Linx took the stage and did not disappoint. Not only are these guys crazy talented, they are the most modest down-to-earth people out there.

On MurderRebelRadio this week:
What a week, The MRR crew minus Brandon tell hoarders to go to hell, talk a little bit of football, and Bryan lets the other guys know how a 23 year old woman punching the halo of a 13 year old boy in a wheelchair was probably being pushed.

So Happy Together: The Vanguard and Ambassadors

The Vanguard and Ambassadors shared a stage for the first time Friday at Trash Bar. If this first performance is a precursor of what’s to come with all the upcoming tours, RethinkPopMusic has plenty to look forward to. The vibe in the place was incredible (thanks to the open bar) and cameos from Sam from Ambassadors and Saara from You Can Be A Wesley during The Vanguard’s set was electric. Thanks to DJ Mojo for putting the bill together, Luiggi for the pics, the RPM staff for all their hard work and all the people who made it out.



The reading wrestler…


Saara from You Can Be A Wesley is too cute to be hanging out with us.



Sam sings so loud he doesn’t even need the mic.



Adam from Ambassadors: “Who let a wrestler on stage?”


RethinkPopMusic’s Art Director, Johnnie Kravetz, remains faceless…


Hypernova made an appearance…


The RethinkPopMusic staff are fans too…


The site of David Z shirtless made Aaron explode!
