Tonight: @GROUPLOVE Plays Vegas For FREE

1 Nov

Ok Vegas, here is your reminder so you can’t say “I didn’t know” and miss an incredible show.  Tonight make your way to Book & Stage at The Cosmopolitan where GROUPLOVE will be performing at 10 p.m. and midnight.  Fresh off the release of their debut album, Never Trust A Happy Song, this quintuplet is a band you’re going to want to say you saw way back when.  These guys were my highlight of Lollapalooza, blowing me away more than their EP I had been listening to on repeat all summer.  Not only do they have a great sound but their story is damn cool too.  Check out what I wrote back in June for the skinny on the band.

So let’s recap, GROUPLOVE performing for FREE tonight (and tomorrow) at Book & Stage inside The Cosmopolitan at 10 p.m. and midnight. Got it? Good.  See you there!

 

Tonight: Graffiti6 Plays Vegas

13 Jul

Back in October 2010 I posted about the pop-rock UK duo of producer TommyD and singer-songwriter Jamie Scott who together make up Graffiti6 and tonight they descend upon Las Vegas to perform at Book & Stage at Cosmopolitan.  To say I’m stoked in an understatement and if you are in Vegas I highly recommend you make your way over at 10 p.m. tonight.

Southwest Airlines Shows Loves And Then Retracts Free Music Offer

8 Jun

Southwest Airlines has really pulled a fast one on customers this time.  The airline recently announced in honor of its 40th birthday they would be giving away a 40 song playlist for FREE.  Not even a week after announcing and launching this has Southwest pulled the promotion and only saying “We apologize, but due to popular demand the free playlist is no longer available. Check out the artists we love on iTunes below.”

This is wrong in so many ways but I mean what did they think was going to happen; people weren’t actually going to download the music because they haven’t heard of most if not all of the artists?  For many people their favorite four letter word is FREE.  Was this a deal rigged with iTunes to try and get people to purchase the songs and some sort of revenue generator?  Who really knows the truth but what a lame and pathetic job by Southwest.

Something that could have been such a positive has become a negative very quickly.  And you know what; I bet those artists would have loved for millions of people to be introduced to their music.

Looks like no cake will be served at this anniversary party.
