A Tribe Called Red

óè atribecalledred.com

ONE of the standout acts at the recent 40th annual Winnipeg Folk Festival, A Tribe Called Red has been on a roll the last few months. Along with wowing crowds at Birds Hill Park with their powwow-infused take on bass-driven dubstep and moombahton, two-time Canadian DMC Champion DJ Shub, DJ NDN and DJ Bear Witness have played prestigious events such as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and Detroit's Movement festival. If you missed the trio at the folk festival last week, you can still download their Polaris Prize shortlisted album, Nation II Nation, free from their website. In fact, the trio have made four albums worth of material available for free download on their website.

Stream of the Week: Mind Your Manners -- Pearl Jam

óè bit.ly/pearljam_new

SEATTLE veterans Pearl Jam recently released the lead single to their forthcoming album, Lightening Bolt. Mind Your Manners ratchets up the punk influence and should go over well with the band's dedicated fan base, along with announcing to the rest of the world they aren't a washed-up act still trying to hold onto the '90s. Lightening Bolt is set for release Oct. 14.

Video of the Week: Gathering of the Juggalos 2013 Infomercial

óè bit.ly/juggalos2013

GQ magazine may have just named Detroit's Insane Clown Posse the "worst rappers of all time," but the throngs of party-hearty Juggalos (the subculture of ICP fans) couldn't care less and will be making their way to Cave-In-Rock, Ill., this summer to celebrate all things ICP.

Actually, ICP are far from the worst rappers out there. The duo has built a mini empire and operates on a different level than most bands. While some artists struggle to adapt to the new business model forced on the music industry by the growth of the Internet, the ICP has forged its own alternative universe, in which their fans buy the group's music, support its shows, take home truckloads of merch and show up every year in the backwoods of Illinois for a crazy, one-of-a-kind festival that this year will feature music from Vanilla Ice, Rahzel, Kaiju Big Battel and Lil' Easy-E.

The group recently uploaded the annual infomercial for the festival to YouTube.
