CMJ just announced the first round of this year’s festival artists! We’re psyched to see our new friends and Bonfire Sessions Montreal performers Half Moon Run make the cut (check out some video footage from the BFS back in July.) Also in the first round of announcements is a recently re-formed group we hadn’t heard from in a good many years: Dismemberment Plan. Check out their record Change on Spotify. It’s an oldie but a [...] Read More >
Last Saturday could not have brought better weather for a Bonfire Sessions: clear skies, mid-70′s, gentle breeze… nothing wrong with that.
If you missed it, never fear: we’ll have video coverage from the event posted in a few weeks here on Unzipped, on our Youtube channel, and with our friends at Noisey. We’ll also debut the next episode of our Bonfire Sessions series, where artists take us around and tell us what they love about each Bonfire Sessions city.

We’re half way through the week, and that puts us just 3 days away from our Bonfire Sessions in Seattle. For those of you new to the whole concept of a Bonfire Session, it’s about as simple as it gets: an outdoor concert under the stars with locally loved bands, a bonfire, some free drinks, and all around good vibes. What’s not to love about that?
If you haven’t RSVP’ed for the event yet, you’ll need to get on that [...] Read More >
The Bonfire Sessions are back Seattle! You’ve helped us celebrate every August for three years now, and we’re coming back for year four with our fourth Bonfire Sessions of 2013. As always, we’ll be bringing some of our favorite local talent out for an intimate night of music by the Bonfire.
A HUGE thank you to all of the people that came out to join us for our event outside of Montreal last Sunday! What a magical summer evening! Of course, we couldn’t have a Bonfire Sessions without live music, so a huge thanks also goes to Half Moon Run, Young Galaxy, and Young Rival. We never cease to be amazed by the incredible amount of talent within the Montreal music scene.
Please help us in wishing the gentlemen from Half Moon Run good luck and [...] Read More >

The sound is unmistakable: Ray Manzarek’s organ, like the sound of Jimmy Hendrix’s guitar, or the sound of John Bonham’s drums with Led Zeppelin, changed the way we could think about rock & roll. As a founding member of the Doors, Manzarek had everything to do with the sound that made the band a sensation. The 74 year old Manzarek passed away yesterday in Germany as a result of a long battle with bile duct cancer.
There are lot’s of great tributes to Manzarek out there [...] Read More >
