Monday, 9/1:

'Fool's Gold Day Off'
50 Kent
2:00 p.m., $15-$30
If you can't make it out of town for Labor Day, local hip-hop/electronic label Fool's Gold can always be counted on to make sure you have a wicked end to your three-day weekend. This year, its Day Off party has expanded beyond BK, and is now hosting a five-city, ticketed mini tour of sorts which hits Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Miami. As usual, the lineup is heavy and features Danny Brown, French Montana, AraabMuzik, Brenmar, and Fool's Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs. The event promises special guests, and its insane history of headliners could be a perfect starting list of contenders, like A$AP Rocky or Juicy J, who could make the afternoon party an even wilder experience. Fool's Gold has become an important purveyor of the newest game changers, so prepare to spend your day off working hard to keep up. -- By Brittany Spanos

Slash Explains the Difference Between Touring With Aerosmith Today Vs. in 1988

"I didn't walk into their dressing room with a bag of blow and an open bottle of Jack Daniels; we weren't going to do that...plus, those [drugs] were mine!" recalls Slash, laughing. The mono-monikered guitar star is flashing back to when Guns 'N' Roses opened for Aerosmith in 1988. "We had a blast, and it was one of the best professional experiences of my career--having Guns open up for Aerosmith and having our band fucking finally cross that wave. That was just really cool."

Cut to 26 years later, and he's again opening for Aerosmith, this time gone from Guns for 18 years, sober for nine, and with his band of about three years--Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. The iconic, large-than-life cartoon character that is Slash hasn't outgrown his rock ''n' roll all night and party every day (and night) lifestyle, though these days, the father of two lives it minus booze and substances. A sober Slash is a busy Slash: "I enjoy what I do and I get bored easily. I need to play. If I'm not on tour, I'm jamming. And if not I'm doing a session; I'm always playing."

Veruca Salt: "Playing Music Again Feels Like the Most Natural Thing in the World"

Categories: Live

It's certainly understandable if you, like many, suffer band band reunion fatigue. Nowadays, it seems, no band actually breaks up. But this is a reunion we're generally thrilled about: Veruca Salt. Singer-guitarists Nina Gordon and Louise Post fronted the '90s band, releasing singles like "Seether" and "Volcano Girls," which were the sonic equivalent of Pop Rocks: all sweet harmonies and sharp guitar grinds. In 1998, Gordon left the band, which then went through several incarnations with Post at its helm. This summer the original line-up -- Gordon, Post, drummer Jim Shapiro, and bassist Steve Lack -- is back together and touring. We spoke to Gordon about why this isn't that kind of reunion tour.
