In the 10 years since Robyn Rihanna Fenty burst onto the music-industry scene as the phenomenon known as Rihanna, she has had enormous success as a singer, fashion designer and actress. With a lengthy list of major achievements including record-breaking album sales, successful collaborations with major brands and roles in feature films, it’s hard to believe she was once just a talented 16-year-old Barbadian with a dream. At least until public-relations maven Jonathan Hay got ahold of her.

The year was 2005, and Rihanna had just released her single “Pon de Replay.” The song was one of three she put together...

Described by Pure Grain Audio as “overflowing with a bloodthirsty passion,” The Unravelling’s blend of industrial and hard rock reflects the infectious intensity of its creators.

Suite 101 calls The Unravelling "a band who can combine the alternative stylings of Tool with the adventurousness, ambition, and refusal to compromise of The Dillinger Escape Plan.”

Lead vocalist Steve Moore fell ill in 2011. He was forced to spend the next year and a half in surgery and recovery, thus sending his collaborative partnership with the project's founder and instrumentalist, Gustavo De Beauville, into a hiatus.

Sophomore Sarah Soles listens to a lot of music. When she first heard the band Halloween Town, she said she liked them instantly. "They remind me of Coconut Records with a little bit of Kings of Leon," Soles said. Halloween Town, a Las Vegas-based band, recently released an album that lead singer Ryan Pardey has been working on since 2008 and a University of South Dakota professor took part in making it. Nolan Stolz, a professor in the music department at USD, played drums for Halloween Town before accepting his professorship at USD.

The colourful mural on the outside of Lee's Palace has been a Toronto live music scene landmark for so long that it's hard to picture what the Annex would feel like without it. The current version actually the third incarnation of the famous cartoon imagery, but the overall concept and feel of the alternative rock venue has changed remarkably little since opening September 5, 1985.

Also like the Danforth Music Hall, Allen's Bloor Theatre was also designed by Detroit architecture firm Howard Crane, and was originally much more ornate than what you see today. In 1923, Famous Players bought out the...

Welcome to Festival Outlook, a supplemental column that provides more in-depth analysis for the rumors found on Consequence of Sound’s Festival Outlook. In this installment, our staff selects this year’s top 10 headliners at North American festivals. 

Nina Corcoran (NC): When we sat down to figure out this year’s winter power rankings for North American music festivals, much of the discussion revolved around lineup similarities, gender inequality, and the speed at which festival promoters rushed out the announcements. This is by far the earliest we’ve known about the festivals’ acts. Given the unanimity between each festival’s headliners, it seemed like the result of...

The first trailer for the highly anticipated YA film Paper Towns was released today and looks just as optimistic, romantic, and dramatic as we would expect from a John Green adaptation. Thankfully, Paper Towns will not turn you into a giant pile of quivering snot like Green’s last book to film adaptation did. We see you, Fault In Our Stars, and we’re still dehydrated.

The new film stars Fault actor Nat Wolff as Q, an average high schooler who is in love with his neighbor, the not-so-average Margo Roth Spiegelman. Yes, three names. Let’s remember, this film is based on a...
