Quote of the Day

"We're feeling good about the future. We will prevail!"

-Pennywise bassist Fletcher Dragge tells Poison Ivy, following the departure of singer Jim Lindberg

Coheed and Cambria Storm New York; Talk Production on Fifth Album

While we all patiently wait for Coheed and Cambria's Spring prequel album (of which Poison Ivy can confirm four songs have already been recorded in Pasadena with producers Atticus Ross and Joe Barresi), the band have hit the road for a handful of dates with Black Sabbath offshoot band Heaven and Hell.

P.I. had the chance to check out the fantastic show and chat with CoCa after their Madison Square Garden gig Tuesday night, and it was one very metal affair!

Frontman Claudio Sanchez debuted his newest Gibson - a Flying V he says makes "the sound stray" more than ever, and drummer Chris Pennie told us that Barresi and Ross were "totally insightful" in the studio.

"It takes balls and foresight to give someone a chance," Pennie said.

Check out a clip of "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3," MSG-style, above.

DJ AM Dead at 36

Gossip website TMZ is reporting that Adam Goldstein, known professionally as DJ AM, was found dead in his New York City apartment today.

Goldstein, 36, famously survived a plane crash with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker back in September 2008.

The cause of death is unknown, but TMZ is reporting that drug paraphernalia was found at the scene.

Quote of the Night

"If there's one thing people know it's that I'm in Roger Federer's head. Definitely. That's probably as consistent as gravity."

-Andy Roddick tells David Letterman

The Bravery Blast Through NYC Show

"This next song is about a bar in Brooklyn I used to live at," says The Bravery frontman Sam Endicott, in between sips of Amstel Light.

The boys were back in their hometown of NYC Wednesday night, playing a Bloc Group concert at Webster Hall, and the song Endicott introduced was multi-platinum hit "Believe," the song that soundtracked every television show from Gossip Girl to Prison Break back in 2007.

The band also played other hits - "Time Won't Let Me Go," "Swollen Summer," "Fearless," and a finale featuring our personal favorite, "Honest Mistake."

Check out the fantastic performances below.

Heaven and Hell Tear Up the Garden

We're not going to bullshit you.

The real reason we went to Madison Square Garden Tuesday night was to see Coheed and Cambria. Not Britney or Ciara or even Heaven and Hell. But once we started watching these dudes rock, we couldn't stop!

Ronnie James Dio is a full-on rock god, and while horrifying at times, his stage presence was some of the most commanding we've ever seen.

Check out a clip of Heaven and Hell's "I" below, and see what we're talking about.
