Music Monday: Wrestlers – “Say Anything” (feat. Twin Shadow and D’Angelo Lacy)

12 May

The first time I heard this was back in March and was in absolute awe of this track. If you follow Red Bull Sound Select, you’re probably familiar with the duo of Adian Kennedy and David Elkin as Bagheera who now go by Wrestlers and have a ridiculously amazing song in “Say Anything which features Twin Shadow and D’Angelo Lacy. Give a listen below and don’t be afraid to get up and start dancing. Happy Monday!

Five For Friday: Lollapalooza Edition No.1

27 Jul

So here we are, one week away from Lollapalooza and the excitement is building.  So many great bands and musicians over three wild and crazy filled days in Chicago!  As Grant Park gets ready to be invaded by 100,000 people, I’m running down a small little guide if you find yourself attending and for those who plan to watch the YouTube stream.

  1. Let’s get it out of the way, headliners.  Night One: pits Black Sabbath vs. The Black Keys – only US date for Black Sabbath, Night Two: Avicii vs. Red Hot Chili Peppers – RHCP dominated Bonnaroo with a fiery set, Night Three: Justice vs. Jack White – what I’m most interested in is how the crowd sways, when Childish Gambino and Kaskade play at the same time.
  2. Some afternoon delights for you.  Bands like First Aid Kit, The Growlers, Michael Kiwanuka, The War On Drugs, Milo Greene, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, Kopecky Family Band, Chancellor Warhol, Moon Taxi, GIVERS, Bombay Bicycle Club, Outasight, Hey Rosetta!, Oberhofer and more pull early time slots but I promise will be worth arriving for.  These bands are awesome and this is some new music you should really be checking out.
  3. Time Conflicts.  A tip of the hat to the schedulers for finding the easiest way to pull a crowd a part as there are many times over the three days that will have festivalgoers torn.  For instance, on Saturday at the same time you’ll have to decide between Alabama Shakes, The Temper Trap, The Dunwells, B.o.B and fun.  Good luck!
  4. When the sun goes down, the action heats up.  Late night Lollapalooza brings forth some amazing late night shows and some of the best memories of the weekend.  Tickets are sold out to the advertised shows but make a few friends and you’ll find out where the rocking parties are. (Last year I caught CULTS, The Black Lips, Crystal Castles, Skylar Grey)
  5. Who I’m excited for.  Well I’ve been fortunate enough to see so many of these acts live before that I’m mostly craving the opportunity to see many for the first time like Of Monsters and Men, The Gaslight Anthem, The Dunwells, Miike Snow, M83, The Weeknd, Twin Shadow, Amadou & Mariam, Dum Dum Girls, The Devil Makes Three, First Aid Kit, Milo Greene, DEV, Dry The River and Moon Taxi.  Plus after finally seeing Alabama Shakes live at Bonnaroo, I can’t wait to see them again, simply amazing live.

Bonnaroo X Schedule Released Today

13 May


Finally the Bonnaroo schedule has been released! Click HERE to take a look. As expected when the schedule came out, there are  many many conflicts and overlaps with artists and set times. Of course for me there are the staple artists that are marked as must sees (Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Buffalo Springfield, Mumford & Sons, Gregg Allman, Robert Plant, G. Love, The Black Keys, Warren Haynes, etc.) and after that, time to figure out the rest. Who knows, my ideal schedule today may end up being completely different when I arrive. All I know is there is a ton of great music and I can’t wait to be surrounded by 90,000 of my new closest friends.


Bonnaroo Artist Additions

7 Apr

Today Bonnaroo announced artist additions and the comedy line-up for this summer.  I know some people were hoping for bigger names but really, you couldn’t expect more headlining acts to be announced.  Could it have been better, sure but either way I for one am stoked as two of my favorite artists we added, G. Love and Black Joe Lewis.  Add in Galactic, Black Uhuru and Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub and Superfly definitely added some great talent.  DJ line-up should be coming soon too.

OMG Coachella 2011 Line-up

18 Jan

Ok so now the planning can officially begin getting underway as the 2011 Coachella line-up has been announced. I am so stoked about this line-up and definitely finding my way to Indio this spring.

At first glance, Day One is top priority.  As much as a fan I am of Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Lauren Hill, Cut Copy, Brandon Flowers and all the other top billing acts, I’m more jacked about Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Here We Go Magic, Klaxons, !!!, The Drums, Afrojack,  Ozomatli, The Morning Benders and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti to name a few.

Day Two is going to be a dance party bonanza with Steve Angello, Empire of the Sun, Paul van Dyk, Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Joachim Garraud, Chuckie and more plus, Raphael Saadiq, Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, the Kills, Mariachi El Bronx plus Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons and so much more!

Day Three has a ton more great artists but I am not as high on it as Days 1 & 2.  The return of the Strokes, The National, Duran Duran, Duck Sauce, Eliza Doolittle, Tinie Tempah, and Ben Harper’s Fistful of Mercy should all be insane performances.

All I can say is WOW and while some may start chiming in saying this isn’t the best Coachella line-up in the 12 years I would argue that when we recap the festival later this spring it will go down in the record books as featuring one of the finest collections of music we have ever seen over the course of three days.
