New Music: IAMDYNAMITE

5 Dec

While I love to share new music with my friends, I like it even more when a friend introduces me to a new band/artist and man was I lucky this time around.  For the last month I have been infatuated with IAMDYNAMITE, an explosive rock outfit consisting of guitarist Christopher Martin and drummer Chris Phillips.  It is Detroit Rock City with these two Michiganders and their debut album, SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC, is something you need to get on top of yesterday.

@MayerHawthorne Wants to Replace Nickelback in the Lions’ Halftime Show

9 Nov

Ha! This is awesome and I sure hope it happens.  Mayer Hawthorne campaigning to replace Nickelback as the Thanksgiving Day halftime performer during the annual Turkey Bowl in Detroit where he just so happens to be from (well Ann Arbor).  I mean how can you have a Canadian band play Thanksgiving in the United States?  If they were playing halftime of a CFL game during Thanksgiving in Canada, okay, totally fine.  Better question may be, who’s bright idea was it to book Nickelback for this in the first place?

Check out THIS article from PASTE Magazine with the campaign video from Mayer himself.

If you decide to get in the campaign spirit, tweet @MayerHawthrone and use the hash tag #MayerForDetroit.

 

 

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 5 Days – Artist of the Day: Eminem

4 Jun

A five year hiatus didn’t do anything to diminish his reputation in the music game.  If anything it only made Eminem come back stronger to claim his stake as one of the all time elite in hip-hop. Fast forward three years, two new albums albums and now a total of 13 Grammy Awards to date and Slim Shady has an arsenal of material to drop at Bonnaroo.  As one of the headliners, expect the performance to be an intense 90 minutes. Perhaps a guest spot by Weezy while we’re at it?
