This week's Deftones/DFA1979 show

Blistering, sweaty sets from two great bands making a side stop from their tour with Incubus, and it was just what I needed this week. See my full review on our website. -Brad Keefe


Lifetime's summer show is a behind-the-scenes look at the chaos of producing a dating reality show. I don't care if it's a Lifetime show. "UnREAL" is sharp, provocative and really entertaining. -Alyse Kordenbrock

Destihl's Here Gose Nothing

I happened upon a four-pack of the intensely sour beer, which is part of the Illinois brewery's Wild Sour Series, on a recent trip to Giant Eagle, and I think I've discovered a new summer favorite. -Andy Downing


Forrest MacNeil is back! The incomparable Comedy Central series, starring Andy Daly, returns July 30 and the premiere ("Brawl, Blackmail, Glory Hole") is incredible. Also, A.J. Gibbs is the best sidekick on television. -Jesse Tigges


"We have such sights to show you …" -Abernathy Miller

Marmot Pre-Clip Rain Jacket

This was the best money I've spent all year. It's a lightweight raincoat with a hood that has a visor built in. I bought it right before ComFest, knowing that I would need it for that event - but it has come in handy all season during this weird monsoon summer we've been having. -Meghan Ralston
