Welcome rocker nation to a brand new episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.
This week, CoS Managing Editor Adam Kivel, CoS Associate Editor Sasha Geffen, and comedian Goodrich Gevaart participate in the first annual Rock it Out! Blog Supergroup Draft. Each panelist goes through four rounds of intense drafting in order to put together their all-time dream band.
The panel also discusses Live Nation’s recent purchase of a controlling stake in Bonnaroo, and Morrissey’s argument that crowd funding an album is “insulting” and a “desperate measure”. Additionally, CoS film critic Justin Gerber shares his review of the new Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, and we give you a sneak peek at an upcoming installment of Video Vault featuring an early performance from Oasis.
