Desert Trip, Oldchella, Retirement community of the year, whatever you want to call it, it’s magical and being able to experience it with my family is priceless and amazing. Watching other families like ours enjoying the weekend is so joyous I only wish everyone had the opportunity. Seriously if you can make it next week, get online, buy tickets and be in Indio, it’s worth every moment.
Day two was a memorable one for the books! Neil Young and Promise of the Real delivered an incredible and rocking set to kickstart the night; Sir Paul McCartney as he always does, dazzled the crowd with his insane catalog of hits, production any artist would die for and of course his graceful ways with the crowd. However last night amid the smiles grinning from ear to ear during the second day of Desert Trip, the most powerful moment came when Sir Paul welcomed Neil Young to the stage. Together they rocked “A Day In The Life” into “Give Peace A Chance” which became a 75,000+ singalong in unison. If an Englishman and a Canadian can stand on stage and deliver this message to 75,000 people from all over the world, it’s our duty (and should be our honor) to continue to spread this message not only across the United States from sea to shining sea but to each and every person we touch. Believe in PEACE, seek PEACE, give PEACE a chance!
PEACE + LOVE + MUSIC
Huntington Beach where you at?! The countdown to Life is Beautiful 2016 rolls on and pretty perfect for today! Check out this stripped down version of “Moon Tower” by Dirty Heads off their self titled, fifth album which dropped earlier this summer. Getting stoked to have the fellas perform at Life is Beautiful on Saturday, September 24. More here from Relix.
The countdown to Life is Beautiful rolls on as we enter the holiday weekend. I hope by now as “Rebel Heart” gets more and more spins per week on radio that you’ve had a chance to listen to up and coming LA rockers, The Shelters. Personally I cannot wait for them to take the stage at Life is Beautiful and if you are a fan of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, you are going to LOVE these guys.
You can catch them at Life is Beautiful on Saturday, September 24!
“Do you remember…….” Welcome to September and welcome to Life is Beautiful month! We’re going to kickoff this countdown with a dance party thanks to the funkiest duo around, Chromeo! Get amped and get ready to catch them performing in DTLV on Sunday, September 25!

This morning Bottlerock dropped its 2016 lineup and nice one for Napa Valley. Three big headliners in Stevie Wonder, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Florence + The Machine. The return of The Lumineers will be welcomed along with big names like Death Cab For Cutie, Lenny Kravitz and younger bands like Walk The Moon, Grouplove and Misterwives. Michael Franti is back and is a great show for Bottlerock, Cold War Kids should be received well like Cage The Elephant in 2015 and smaller acts like Houndmouth, X Ambassadors, The Suffers, San Fermin, Coleman Hell, Langhorne Slim, Son Little, etc. Congrats to the Latitude 38 Ent team on another solid lineup for Napa Valley.
After seeing Big Grams’ debut public performance at Treasure Island Music Festival last weekend, not only am I convinced it was the best set of the weekend but man this show is only going to get better! Get ready to see them on nearly every festival lineup in 2016 and for good reason. While Big Boi and Phantogram have chopped it up for years, getting on stage to perform their self titled debut album you would think may take some work but man it was tight and on point even down to the production. Bringing out Run The Jewels for “Born To Shine” was a nice touch, “Put It On Her” sounds like classic OutKast and the “Ms. Jackson”/”Mouthful of Diamonds” mashup was perfect and the crowd was eating up the whole set. As for me, I’ve been listening to the album on repeat for the last two days and falling in love with it more and more every spin.
I don’t think they need any intro, Duran Duran are performing in less than a week in Downtown Las Vegas at Life is Beautiful. Just wow! Fun fact, back in 2008 Duran Duran played Vegas they brought out a special guest, Brandon Flowers of The Killers! Perhaps lightning will strike twice? I sure hope so!
