In Print: Jimmy Pagano, Matt & Kim, Dooms De Pop, and More

One of the most emotionally charged parts of being a reporter is documenting people on your beat after they've died. In life, drummer Jimmy Pagano made the rounds with his Untamed Band and helped organize countless jam nights around South Florida. His death rocked the local community, and many spoke up with heartfelt tributes collected here leading up to Sunday's memorial tribute at America's Backyard.

Another celebrated local, Garo Gallo, and his power-pop band, Dooms de Pop, have finished the long-awaited Ticker album. He and Monica Uszerowicz discussed much regarding its release.

One of the choicest draws of last fall, Matt & Kim, returns with the Thermals on Sunday. And though the duo is known best for being happier than Rebecca Black on a Thursday at 11:59 p.m., there's some violence in their partnership, as Reyan Ali points out.

Other concerts coming up include: Taylor Swift with Needtobreathe at BankAtlantic Center on June 2 and 3, Infected Mushroom at Club Cinema on June 3, and the Monkees at Pompano Beach Amphitheatre on June 6.
