Vegas Baby! Summer Live Concert Series at SLS Las Vegas

16 Jun

All my Vegas peeps and friends who are looking to make a trip out to Vegas this summer I have your Saturday nights planned for you! Behind the scenes I’ve been working with my good buddy, Mike Henry of The Bunkhouse to put together a summer concert series lineup for the Foxtail Pool at SLS Las Vegas. We’re talking a fireworks worthy show with MSTRKRFT, reggae on a hot Vegas night with Matisyahu, an old school hip-hop show with Sir Mix A Lot, Naughty by Nature, Shock G, Young MC and Tha Alkaholiks, Hoobastank with POD and Alien Ant Farm, Matt & Kim back in Vegas for their first time since destroying their set at Life is Beautiful last fall, the Las Vegas debut for Mystikal with Fiend and KLC, Plain White T’s and more to be announced!  All these shows (except for one) are on a Saturday night, booze will be flowing, the pool will be available for open swim and we’re going to have a fun time partying to the lineup below. That’s the key, FUN, and these shows are all about it! Tickets go on sale Thursday, hope you can make it! Also the most killer deal of all, you can get a “season pass” which will grant you entry to each show throughout the summer.  We’re going to be adding more shows so this is a killer deal.

See you on July 4 for a rocking set by MSTRKRFT!

DoYouHearTheMusic.com – Febrary 2015 Playlist

10 Feb

New music Tuesday so why not put together a little playlist to help get you through your day and the month of February. I know I just put together my January 2015 playlist a couple weeks ago so between the two you should be good to go with some solid tunes for the full work day. This month brings new music from Alabama Shakes, Marina and The Diamonds, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Purity Ring; second and third singles from James Bay, Hozier and George Ezra; and hopefully I can introduce you to some new tunes from Twerps, Vetiver, Francisco The Man and more. Peace + Love + Music.

Revisited: #Superjam ft. Skrillex & Friends at @Bonnaroo 2014 (Video)

22 Jan

Bonnaroo 2014.  It was halfway through Jack White’s thrashing rock and roll set, @808Dave, @JoleneMannina and I knew it would be tough but we had to leave to make sure we were on time for the Superjam ft. Skrillex & Friends! So off we went, leaving our nearly front row spot for a chance to see something amazing happen. As we ran through the farm we finally arrived at The Other Tent with time to spare, or so we thought! Thanks to a fellow Bonnaroovian, he informed us that a push notification announced a switch in for Frank Ocean with the Superjam so off to This Tent we marched. Finally we really had made it! Thanks to some friends we had been tipped off to the remaining unannounced special guests and just knew this was going to be one of the most incredible performances we’d ever witness. And as people who weren’t there soon after found out, it was just that, an epic performance from incredible musicians. Just click play below to see the Danny Clinch directed documentary showing the preparation leading up to this unreal late night evening of music which started out with the “house band” of Skrillex and Big Gigantic with Thundercat on bass, Mike Einziger of Incubus on guitar and Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee on keys. From there it was on with the special guests as Fatman Scoop hyped the crowd on a couple of tracks, Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead sat in for a few, Craig Robinson and Mystikal (yes, really), followed by the ladies of Warpaint, the incredible Janelle Monae, A$AP Ferg, Zedd on drums, Robby Krieger of The Doors, Matthew Shultz of Cage The Elephant, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and then a four song encore with Ms. Lauryn Hill.  It was simply incredible and something I was in awe of.  Hands down one of the coolest performances I had ever been witness to.  To this day that memory on the farm stands out.  If anything it set a new bar for where Superjam’s of the future need to go.  Sonny Moore, Paul Peck and the Bonnaroo Crew, bravo and I can’t wait to see what awaits at Bonnaroo 2015 in June!  SET LIST and WORDS.
