Huntington Beach boys Dirty Heads performed an intimate acoustic set in the Music Unlimited LIVE Lounge at San Francisco’s LIVE 105 radio station last week, offering a preview of their 40 date fall tour in support of new album, Sound of Change. The release features an all-star cast of producers, including Supa Dups (Drake, Bruno Mars, Eminem) and Rome (Sublime with Rome) — and guests like B Real of Cypress Hill, Tech N9ne and Ward 21. We went by the session to grab some photos and bring back the setlist, which you can see here.

It was a big night for the ladies at MTV Video Music Awards, with women representing half of the evening’s major awards and Beyonce — as you might expect — dominating both in terms of wins and performance.

Video of the Year went to Miley Cyrus for her performance atop a piece of heavy construction equipment in “Wrecking Ball.” Katy Perry took home Best Female for her “Dark Horse” video; Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea‘s “Problem” won a Best Pop statue; and Sia won Best Choreography for “Chandelier.”

Beyonce’s Drunk In Love,” a duet with husband Jay-Z, won the prize for Best Collaboration while “Pretty Hurts” brought her wins in both the Best Video With a Social Message and Best Cinematography categories.

She also gave one of the night’s most amazing performances, with a medley that spanned almost 20 minutes and included cuts from every song on her 2013 self-titled album. And all that doesn’t even include the fact that she was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement, an award she accepted with the help of Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

Other non-Beyonce winners last night included Drake (Best Hip Hop for “Hold On (We’re Going Home),” Eminem (Best Editing for “Rap God“) and Fifth Harmony (MTV Artist To Watch for “Miss Movin’ On“).

Check out the full list of winners and see photos and performances from the show here.
