MUSIC

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

MUSIC

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

September 19, 2007
Under the slogan of "Championing independent culture since 1993," the people behind San Francisco's annual Noise Pop music festival (you can check out the 2007 LAS festival feature here) put together two days of music and fun and called it the inaugural Treasure Island Music Festival. All things considered the first running was a rousing success, bringing together some of the biggest names in music for a weekend party situated, quite literally, smack dab in the middle of San Francisco Bay. For a fresh Chicago transplant like myself, the view alone was worth the admission. The diversity of great music on display -- from the dancefloor grooves of Theivery Corporation and a collaborative set from DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, to the angular guitarwork of Built to Spill and the anything-goes Modest Mouse -- was just gravy. Below you'll find a collection of images from some of the weekend's best performances. Enjoy!
