With doors for the show opening at 4:00 p.m., people started lining up at 10:00 in the morning outside Hard Rock Cafe Honolulu for an intimate acoustic show by power pop punk band All Time Low. Come showtime, 400 lucky, screaming teens thronged the Cafe, ready for their favorite tunes to fill their auditory canals. Yeah, we said it. Auditory canals. They rock. Or, rather, they allow you to rock.

As some of you know, but many of you probably don't, metal took over Yankee Stadium this week in the form the Big Four. The Big Four, you ask? Well, we're glad you asked because the Big Four is probably the biggest metal show this side of the Atlantic (Europe, it seems, has put on huge metal shows for a long, long time). The show consists of the four biggest speed & thrash metal bands of all time: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. To say it rocked is an understatement.

09.12: September 12th was a fruitful day for musicians. In 1944, Deep-voiced crooner and composer Barry White was born, eventually becoming the number one performer to be put on the stereo when you got back to the house with a special someone, after a late night at the bar. 1952 saw Neil Peart pound his way into world, where he would soon bang his way to the top as the drummer for a little Canuck band called Rush. Ben Folds joined us on this day in 1966, not yet playing piano, but having a good set of lungs, beginning his journey toward musical longevity.
