-  Jessica Hopper, music critic and author, "Night Moves" rantnrave:// It's January, the West Coast is under water, seemingly the rest of the country is bracing for a mini Ice Age, and here we are talking about outdoor festivals. Like this one for MINECRAFT-playing kids, which took place inside the video game last weekend and which spelled "Fire" just like that, with an "i." And this one for classic-rock flag-waving Gen-Xers, which will take place inside a stadium in Arlington, Texas, and won't feature ARIANA GRANDE or even TAME IMPALA. But especially this one, which didn't take place at all two years ago on an island paradise that wasn't an island paradise, which spelled "Fyre" with a "y" and which is now the subject of two documentaries released four days apart. You can relive the horror in actual festival style, traipsing between multiple streaming subscriptions over 96 hours instead of traipsing between multiple stages through a few hundred yards of grass or mud. The two FYRE FESTIVAL docs cover the same material, and a lot of the same footage, in decidedly different ways, and both have their supporters. Here's why you should watch HULU's FYRE FRAUD.

KACEY MUSGRAVES, PISTOL ANNIES and ASHLEY MCBRYDE top NASHVILLE SCENE's annual Country Music Critics' Poll.

It's FRIDAY and that means new music from FUTURE, SHARON VAN ETTEN, JAMES BLAKE, TORO Y MOI, MAGGIE ROGERS, MIKE POSNER, DEERHUNTER, LIZ BRASHER, ALICE MERTON, FEVER 333, PEDRO THE LION, COI LERAY, MALIBU KEN (AESOP ROCK & TOBACCO), YNW MELLY, STEVE GUNN, JOE JACKSON, NKISI, BUKE & GASE, HIKARU UTADA, the TWILIGHT SAD, RONNIE MILSAP, GREENSKY BLUEGRASS, the FLESH EATERS, CHRISTINA PERRI, STEVE MASON, JULIANA HATFIELD, GUSTER, WHITEHORSE, FRANCES CONE and ARCH ENEMY...
