Five For Friday: Gold Fields, A Slient Film, Royal Teeth, SXSW, O.A.R., Allen Stone, Andrew McMahon and more

8 Mar

Back with a Five For Friday that you should really pay attention to.

  1. If you are in Las Vegas tonight there is a rocking show set to take place at the Hard Rock Cafe on The Strip.  Gold Fields, A Silent Film and Royal Teeth share the billing.  Local band, American Cream opens the show at 8:30 p.m.  If you want to hear some of the rising bands in music today, I highly encourage you to check this show out.
  2. Speaking of shows, there are a ton of SXSW artists rolling through town on their way to Austin.  Beauty Bar has a solid lineup which includes David Wax Museum on Saturday evening.  Also downtown tomorrow night is the Vegas Streats two-year anniversary party.  Going to be a fun one!
  3. O.A.R. dropped dates on their upcoming summer tour which includes a powerful set of opening acts in Allen Stone and Andrew McMahon (Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate).
  4. Hangout Music Festival quietly added their third headliner, Stevie Wonder
  5. Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 7 as the next Life Is Beautiful Downtown Las Vegas Music Showcase takes place at Commonwealth.

#MusicMonday: Sleeper Agent – “Get Burned”

16 Apr

Good morning……music fans!  Music Monday and let’s get the week started off with a little Sleeper Agent.  If you aren’t familiar with these kids from Kentucky, you need to be.  They released their debut album, Celabrasion, last fall and are rising fast.  They just played Coachella last weekend, are making an appearance at the Hangout Music Festival next month, and are on a little tour right now with Ben Kweller.  So if you haven’t, give a listen to their peppy, rock sound and be on the lookout for this band in a city near you.

My Thoughts on the Hangout Music Festival Line-up

10 Feb

Pretty powerful line-up at the Hangout Music Festival, May 18-20, on Alabama’s Gulf Shores.

Jack White, Dave Matthews Band and Red Hot Chili Peppers are a solid trio of headliners that highlight three days of solid music.

A look at some of the other initial acts announced:

Wilco – will be rocking in support of their new album

String Cheese Incident – never met a SCI show I didn’t like

The Flaming Lips – performing Pink Flyod’s Dark Side of the Moon

Chris Cornell – solid choice

Dispatch – ah a year back together and in comes the festivals again! So exciting!

Steve Winwood – now this will be a fun performance

Allen Stone – everybody needs a little Allen Stone in their lives

Alabama Shakes – what more can I say, they are on FIRE!

Gary Clark Jr. – if you haven’t listened to this man, best do so now

G. Love – c’mon y’all know this is a must see

Michael Franti & Spearhead – YES!!

Young The Giant – energetic live performances

Cage the Elephant – look online for video from Lollapalooza 2011
