  • Little Cinema: Adventure

    For a copycat act, Little Cinema aren’t bad. Not outstandingly great, but not bad, either.

It’s a bit of a shame. However, if you wanted to like the Smiths (and by extension Morrissey) but couldn’t penetrate them because they wrote and sang about things in their homeland, Little Cinema, a long-distance group from Austin and Brooklyn, might…

This became apparent last night (November 19), when Moz reportedly ended a concert in Poland after just 25 minutes due to a heckler. Moz was performing at Warsaw's Klub Stodola and was just six songs in when, according to reports, he left due to comments from someone near the stage. In a statement, Live Nation explained that "one of the members of the audience standing close to the stage directed extremely offensive and chauvinistic words" towards the singer. A fan...Read More

  • Morrissey Cancels Rescheduled Swiss Show

    That crazy cat Morrissey is always cancelin’ shows!
