    Jawbreaker is setting up shop at the Fillmore in San Francisco for three nights, March 24-26. The New York City Post-punk act — featuring vocalist-guitarist Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister and drummer Adam Pfahlerwhose — is making the rounds in celebration of the 25th anniversary of 1995’s acclaimed “Dear You” album. “Dear You” marked the band’s major label debut on DGC Records, following a string of influential indie albums — 1990’s “Unfun,” 1992’s “Bivouac” and 1994’s “24 Hour Revenge Therapy.” It also happens to be the last studio album that the band has recorded — at least to date. Jawbreaker ended up breaking up in 1996, although it reunited in 2017 to the delight of its many fans. Many consider “Dear You” to be a masterpiece. Rolling Stone, for one example, ranked the offering at No. 4 on its list of “Top 40 Greatest Emo Albums of All Time.” Details: 7:30 p.m. March 24-26, Fillmore, San Francisco; livenation.com

    Congress is delving into a showdown between telecommunications and airline interests over the rollout of new, high-speed wireless service that raised concerns about interference with key equipment on planes. Some flights have been canceled since the new networks were turned on last month, but predictions of widespread cancellations turned out to be wrong. The Federal Aviation Administration has cleared 90% of the nation’s airline fleet to land during poor visibility at airports near 5G cell towers. Still, at a hearing Thursday, lawmakers said the matter — a standoff between two federal agencies — should never have reached the point that the White House had to step in to get limits on 5G service near airports. House Transportation Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., blamed the Federal Communications Commission, which approved plans by Verizon and AT&T to launch faster and more reliable 5G service using the C-Band part of the radio spectrum that is close to the range used by radio altimeters. Those devices measure the height of planes above the ground and are critical for landing when visibility is limited by...
    Employees at a Washington state bar quit over their former employers’ “catch the virus” COVID-19 promotion.  Vessel Taphouse Owner Steve Hartley told The Daily Herald that four employees quit their jobs and three bands refused to play at the bar over the pirate-themed promotion.  The bar promoted a concert on Jan. 22 by urging ​​bargoers to bring proof of a positive omicron COVID test to get $4 off of their tickets.  “Come see the show, maybe catch the virus, or just stay home and whine,” Vessel Taphouse said in a now-deleted Facebook post. “Tickets 10 bucks or 6 with proof of omicron positive test. Have you had enough???” Atrocity Girl, one of the band's billed to play that night, released a statement on Facebook pulling out of the event.  “After talking it over, we feel really disturbed that this post was ever allowed to be made. We do not condone this behavior and do not think COVID is a joke. While we want to play and love being out there, we encourage everyone to stay safe!” the band wrote.  Atrocity Girl frontman...

    The heads of American Airlines and United have both claimed that the drama around 5G technology was over - despite the head of Emirates warning that a 'long-term resolution' is now needed. AT&T and Verizon launched their 5G network across America on Wednesday morning, switching on 4,500 towers to bring faster wireless to their customers. They had to hold back on ten percent of the towers - around 500 - that are near airports because the frequencies the towers emit could interfere with the signal on some planes. Eighty-eight airports now have buffers to protect against it but some major airports like Boston and Memphis do not. In the most recent FAA announcement on Wednesday afternoon, the government said 62 percent of flights could operate safely - leaving nearly half to reschedule. On Wednesday, some airline passengers who were unaware of the fiasco showed up at airports ready to board their flights but were told they had been canceled. On Thursday, the CEOs of the U.S. airlines insisted that the situation was under control, and that the Biden administration had...
    BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Emirates Airline is suspending flights to Boston’s Logan Airport and some other U.S. airports indefinitely amid the planned rollout of 5G networks. “Due to operational concerns associated with the planned deployment of 5G mobile network services in the US at certain airports, Emirates will be suspending flights to the following US destinations from 19 January 2022 until further notice: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (IAH), Miami (MIA), Newark (EWR), Orlando (MCO), San Francisco (SFO) and Seattle (SEA).” the airline said in a statement.

    By Brian Fung | CNN Business From mask requirements to waived change fees, the pandemic has dramatically changed what it’s like to fly. But beginning early next year, even more changes could be coming to air travel — ones that have nothing to do with the coronavirus. These changes could lead to flight delays or diversions affecting tens of millions of passengers across hundreds of thousands of flights, according to aviation industry estimates. It all comes down to a political fight over 5G, the next-generation cell service technology that’s begun to be supported in the latest smartphones. Here’s what you need to know: The concern Transportation regulators are concerned that a version of 5G that’s due to be switched on in January could interfere with some airplane instruments, and many aviation industry groups share those fears — despite reassurances from federal telecom regulators and wireless carriers. Specifically, the Federal Aviation Administration is worried that 5G cellular antennas near some airports — not air travelers’ mobile devices — could throw off readings from some aircraft equipment designed to tell pilots how...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The City of Miramar and eight other cities are filing a lawsuit against the state and Governor Ron DeSantis over a provision in HB1, also known as the ‘Anti-Riot Act’. The bill, which DeSantis signed into law earlier this year in response to Black Lives Matter protests, contains a provision that says cities are not allowed to lower their police and public safety budgets without approval from state officials.

    Rolling Stones fans were shocked when the band announced last week that they were dropping one of their biggest hits, Brown Sugar, from their world tour. Now, I can disclose extraordinary details of how an organised group of woke activists systematically targeted hundreds of thousands of devotees around the world by infiltrating their online fan club. The group of campaigners posed as hardcore Stones superfans to get access to the online subscription fan club IORR (named after their song It's Only Rock 'n' Roll) before relentlessly hammering fans and discussion threads with angry political trolling posts slamming the song's reference to slavery.  Rolling Stones fans were shocked when the band announced last week that they were dropping one of their biggest hits, Brown Sugar (band pictured last week during their first performance since dropping the song) The aggressive assault on the 40-year-old club caused such a wave of hysteria among the fanbase and management that the band members felt compelled to make an announcement that the track would no longer be performed. Guitarist Keith Richards, 77, seemed utterly dumbfounded by the...
    Photo by Jeff Curry/Getty Images. The Rolling Stones have dropped their 1971 hit “Brown Sugar” from their current U.S. tour amid criticism over the song’s lyrics. The song starts with the line, “Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields.” “You picked up on that, huh?” band member Keith Richards told The Los Angeles Times in an interview published last week when he was asked why the song wasn’t being played on the tour. “I don’t know. I’m trying to figure out with the sisters quite where the beef is. Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it. At the moment I don’t want to get into conflicts with all of this s***.” “I’m hoping that we’ll be able to resurrect the babe in her glory somewhere along the track,” he added. “We’ve played ‘Brown Sugar’ every night since 1970, so sometimes you think, We’ll take that one out for now and see how it goes,” the band’s frontman, Mick Jagger, told the Times. “We might put it back in.” The...
    The Rolling Stones decided earlier in October to nix their early 1970s hit song “Brown Sugar” over its references to slavery for their upcoming concert performances. The Stones have resumed touring across the U.S. in 2021 after cancelling all of their concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The legendary rock ‘n’ roll band made the decision to remove “Brown Sugar” from their list of 80 songs performed at rehearsals due to its lyrics, The Los Angeles Times reported. The opening lyrics of the song go as follows: “Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields/Sold in the market down in New Orleans/Scarred old slaver knows he’s doing alright/Hear him whip the women just around midnight.” Keith Richards, the band’s co-songwriter and guitarist, criticized the decision to retire the famous song from being performed during their concert tour, according to the outlet. “I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure that one out with the sisters quite where the beef is. Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it,” Richards reportedly...
    Mick Jagger has announced the Rolling Stones have decided to stop performing Brown Sugar 'for now', amid discomfort about the 50-year-old classic's references to slavery. The band, currently on the road for a 13-date U.S. tour, have not played Brown Sugar - one of their most recognizable songs - since kicking off in St Louis on September 26. The 1969 song has been a staple of their live show since it came out 50 years ago, and is the second most played song in their catalog after Jumpin' Jack Flash, with 1,136 known performances, according to Rolling Stone magazine.  The last time the Stones played it live was August 30, 2019 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.  Jagger, asked about the song's absence from their recent set lists, told The Los Angeles Times they had decided to give the song a break. Mick Jagger is pictured in 1969 at the Altamont Speedway festival in California - the first time they played Brown Sugar. He is seen with Mick Taylor, who left the band in 1974 and was replaced with Ronnie Wood...

    Dave Grohl is speaking out. In August, Spencer Elden – who was featured on Nirvana's "Nevermind" album cover in the nude as a baby – filed a lawsuit against Grohl, the estate of Kurt Cobain and several others associated with the rock band. In the suit, Elden claimed that those named in the suit sexually exploited him when they profited from his naked image. He's also alleged that the image is child pornography. Those facing litigation have stayed relatively tight-lipped since the news broke, but Grohl, who was the band's drummer, has broken his silence.

    Six Ojibwe tribes filed a federal lawsuit against Wisconsin on Tuesday, accusing the state of violating their treaty rights by allowing large wolf hunts, nonprofit environmental law organization Earthjustice, who is representing the tribal nations, said. The treaty protects tribal nations' rights to an equal share of harvestable resources and species conservation. According to the lawsuit, the Wisconsin Natural Resource Board approved a 300-wolf quota for an upcoming hunt scheduled to begin on November 6. The tribes said it exceeds the quota of 130 proposed by the Department of Natural Resources, and they accused the defendants of infringing on the Ojibwe tribes' "inherent sovereign rights of tribes." "In setting a quota for the upcoming wolf hunt, Defendants purposefully and knowingly discriminated against the Ojibwe Tribes by acting to nullify their share," the lawsuit stated.  In February, hunters killed more than 200 wolves within three days, exceeding the state's limit of 119, Earthjustice reported earlier this year. A member from Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources later called the hunt an "abomination," the lawsuit stated. "In our treaty rights, we're supposed to...

As concerns mount over the highly contagious Delta variant, wealthy nations are tightening their grip on vaccine arsenals, while desperate people elsewhere in the world are dying due to a lack of shots.Teetering on the edge of a dreaded new wave of coronavirus infections, the United States and Europe are deploying a barrage of monetary incentives and mandates to convince vaccine holdouts to get off the fence, and momentum is building to dole out booster shots for vulnerable groups. Officials in the US and the European Union have one eye trained on the United Kingdom, where the government was slammed last month for dropping nearly all coronavirus restrictions in England. Critics described the move as a "dangerous and unethical experiment," just as the country was in the midst of a frightening Delta-fueled spike in infections. Now cases appear to be subsiding, raising questions about whether Britain's highly vaccinated population may be on...

The drummer of The Offspring has been booted from the popular rock band after failing to get the COVID-19 vaccine over medical concerns. Pete Parada announced the news in a lengthy Monday Instagram post, where he made clear he harbored no ill-feeling toward his bandmates, but said the risks of getting the jab for him “far outweigh the benefits.” “Since I am unable to comply with what is increasingly becoming an industry mandate — it has recently been decided that I am unsafe to be around, in the studio, and on tour,” the drummer wrote. It wasn’t clear through his statement if Parada’s departure is permanent, but he noted he will not perform in the band’s upcoming shows. Parada said throughout his childhood he...
    Offspring drummer Pete Parada has been fired from the band after 14 years following his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine due to a pre-existing medical condition. “Given my personal medical history and the side-effect profile of these jabs, my doctor has advised me not to get a shot at this time,” the 48-year-old musician shared in lengthy thread on Twitter. The comments were noted by Summit News in a piece published Tuesday.

    This is the story of a feud both rotten and vicious; a falling-out which has reached the High Court. At stake is a payday of as much as £5 million per person — a mouth-watering sum for former punk icons the Sex Pistols, who have long complained that they barely made a quid from the music which shook the world 44 years ago. Anyone who knows the men involved is not in the slightest bit surprised about the feud. It follows decades of slights, barbs and chilly years-long silences. The current crisis — which by common agreement marks the very end for the Pistols — has been provoked by the question of whether their music should be licensed for use in a forthcoming big budget TV series about the band, Pistol. John Lydon, known by his stage name Johnny Rotten, says it should not be used. He regards the idea as 'the most disrespectful s*** I've ever had to endure.' Former bandmates, drummer Paul Cook and guitarist Steve Jones, insist it should. The spat has now ended up in court...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A Bret Michaels concert at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles has been canceled after a member of his touring outfit was exposed to the coronavirus.

We are still very excited to open the gates this Wednesday and are looking forward to a fabulous 2021 Fair.” The Foo Fighters were also forced to cancel their show at The Forum this past Saturday after a member of...
    Two former members of the Sex Pistols are suing singer Johnny Rotten for the right to use the band’s songs in an upcoming television series about the anarchic punk rock icons. Guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook want the songs to appear in "Pistol," a television series based on a memoir by Jones. Rotten, whose real name is John Lydon, has slammed the series as "disrespectful" and is refusing to grant permission for the songs to be included. Edmund Cullen, a lawyer for Jones and Cook, told a judge at the High Court in London on Thursday that the former bandmates have a "brittle and fractious" relationship. Cullen argued that under the terms of a 1998 band agreement, decisions regarding licensing requests could be determined on a "majority rules basis." Lydon, however, contends that licenses to use the music can’t be granted without his consent.

                        The record label behind one of America’s most popular Christian bands, along with several country music artists, is suing Tennessee over the state’s new transgender bathroom signage law. Mike Curb, former Republican lieutenant governor of California who also owns Curb Records in Nashville, filed a federal lawsuit challenging HB 1182, which requires Tennessee businesses to post signage that says “this facility maintains a policy of allowing the use of restrooms by either biological sex regardless of the designation of the restroom” if the business intends to allow both sexes to use the same bathroom, locker room, dressing rooms, or other typically-single sex areas. Curb and his record label are listed as the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. But Curb Records currently profits off record deals with numerous artists whose fan bases might side with Tennessee on the issue of transgender bathrooms, including the Christian band Big Daddy Weave. That band has won numerous awards from America’s most popular Christian music radio station, KLove. Its 2013 hit “Redeemed” has been...
