Last night Rush progged their way into Barclays Center. As we learned from Steve "This drummer is at the wrong gig" Moore yesterday, air-drumming is an essential part of the Rush live experience. We sent photographer Kaitlin Parry out to investigate.

The 15 Most Ridiculous Band Promo Photos

Girl Talk, coming in at Number 16

By Daniel Hill

Here at SOTC Music HQ we see literally one shitload of press photos every week. Many of them stick to a template: Gather all band members together, shoulder to shoulder. Make sure no one smiles, ever. Have the artists try to look thoughtful, but also like they are not trying to look like anything. The final product should be utterly boring and should look like every single other press photo in the history of time. And so it goes...

Our Favorite Crowdsurfers At The 4Knots Music Festival

It's surfing the crowd, not skating the crowd

There was a lot of energy at yesterday's 4Knots Music Festival, and some people decided to use it to propel themselves above the crowd—to middling results. Here, thanks to the crack shooting efforts of photographer Willie Davis, are a few notable shots of people engaged in the once-again-popular act of crowdsurfing, that storied practice of getting to know one's fellow concertgoers (or at least their outstretched hands) while ensuring oneself a better vantage point than the rest of them, if only for a few brief moments.

You don't have to go home, Tyler, but you can't stay here. All photos by Rebecca Smeyne.
Another SXSW is in the books, granting great relief to those of us who were just subjected to five straight days of partying-related Twitter updates, and great sorrow to those who became accustomed to the 80 degree weather and not getting snowed on in freezing cold New York City. But all things must come to an end, even for Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator, who had to go home to his mom's house like all the rest of Austin's expatriate population come Monday morning. Our recap of the actual festival is to follow; in the meantime, intrepid photographer Rebecca Smeyne was there and brought back photos. Many involve people breaking things in convention centers (or maybe that's just Das Racist?). Either way, her selected photos are below (you can see the rest in full at our at our slideshow):

2010: The Year In Music Photos

1.jpg
The year in music, circa 2010, started at the Cake Shop, with a shred-down to the New Year courtesy of Siren Festival MVP-to-be Marissa Paternoster and her band Screaming Females. After a tour through the NYE fetes of the Lower East Side and Williamsburg, that night ended amidst a marathon show at Bushwick's Shea Stadium, right around the time the Blastoids' drummer poured paint on his kit and started splattering away.
