Five For Friday, here’s some good tidbits to get you in the right mindset this weekend.
- Recently a buddy of mine won an all expense paid trip courtesy of Volkswagen to see Dave Matthews Band at the Gorge over Labor Day Weekend. Not only was I stoked for him because he’s a huge DMB and music nut like me but it’s the Gorge, a place I’m still trying to get to. Little did I know that after the show him and two other friends would appear in a whole Rolling Stone slideshow documenting the weekend. Check it out HERE.
- Hometown Vegas boys Imagine Dragons dropped their first full length release this week, Night Visions. Pick it up and catch them on tour with AWOLNATION.
- Click HERE to listen to the new Kanye West track “Clique.” Some good guests on this track too!
- One of the final music festivals of the summer takes place this weekend, Doheny Days and features a pretty solid lineup where tickets are only $100 for two days. Jane’s Addiction, The Flaming Lips, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Santigold, Steel Pulse, Delta Spirit, Milo Greene and Jeramiah Red and others perform.
- Next Tuesday is going to be one of the most ridiculous New Music Tuesdays ever, you’ve got Bob Dylan (Tempest), Dave Matthews Band (Away From The World), Chris Robinson Brotherhood (The Magic Door), The Avett Brothers (The Carpenter), The xx (Coexist), Thee Oh Sees (Putrifiers II), ZZ Top (La Futura), A$AP Rocky (LongLiveASAP), Ludacris (Ludaversal), David Byrne & St. Vincent (Love This Giant), Calexico (Algiers), Akon (Stadium), Aaron Lewis (The Road), DMX (Undisputed), Kix Brooks (New To This Town) and more!
