Rival Sons is an American blues and hard-rock band from Long Beach, California, formed in early 2009. Singer Jay Buchanan joined the band after being recruited via MySpace by lead guitarist Scott Holiday. Coming from a background of blues and singer-songwriter music, Buchanan was at first skeptical at the prospect of joining a hard-rock band, but the success of the band’s debut album Before The Fire in 2009 cemented his decision to join. Since then, the band has continued to grow with the release of three more albums and playing with big-name acts like Sammy Hagar, Kiss, and Aerosmith. On May 11, Rival Sons played the Paradise Rock Club.

The ABC’s OF DEATH is an ambitious anthology film featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational ABC books, the motion picture is comprised of 26 individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational; THE ABC’s OF DEATH is the definitive snapshot of the diversity of modern horror. Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures and Timpson Films are proud to present this alphabetical arsenal of destruction orchestrated by what Fangoria calls “a stunning roll call of some of the most exciting names in horror across the world.”

She's definitely the only person we know that can pull off wearing a roller in her fringe without it looking like she's a bit mad, too. Towards the end of her set we came to the conclusion that she's the love child of Adele, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse, a mix we're just a little jealous of.
