Merriam-Webster defines the adjectival form of “august” (emphasis on the “gust”) as “marked by majestic dignity or grandeur.” That applies to imperial leaders Michael Rapino and Sir Lucian Grainge and to several other figures before whom the industry genuflects as the calendar flips to the month of the same spelling.

Posing for a photo that truly captures the gritty, intense, authentically rock ‘n’ roll vibe that is Lollapalooza, Chicago broadcasting legend Todd Cavanah (c) asked, “Why are we eating with this schlemiel? Does he still have an expense account?” Replied New York broadcasting legend Jeff Z, “Yeah, we’re still good.” Meanwhile, record-biz legend Steve Bartels wondered if one more pint of Baderbrau would help him remember who these two guys were. Later, there was moshing.

Måneskin, "I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE"
The Italian rockers who've been ruling the streaming charts (out via Arista in the U.S.) deliver their most provocative visual yet--and a powerful example of their dark charisma.
