Countdown to Life is Beautiful 2016: Dirty Heads – “Moon Tower”

6 Sep

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.

Countdown to Life is Beautiful 2016: Chromeo

1 Sep

“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!

Ray LaMontagne + some friends (My Morning Jacket) are coming to Vegas! September 16!

1 Mar

Vegas, time to wake up, set your alarm and make sure you get tickets to see the man, Ray LaMontagne, on September 16 at the Pearl at Palms. Normally I wouldn’t be this excited about a show (okay, who are we kidding, I freaking love Ray LaMontagne) but this one is going to be a special one as LaMontagne will be joined by his backing band consisting of Tommy Blankenship, Carl Broemel, Bo Koster, and Patrick Hallahan … aka the gents from My Morning Jacket (another band I love) minus Jim James. As a music fan you have to be salivating at the prospect of what this show will be like! Add in that the Pearl’s acoustics are off the charts amazing and that this is a big underplay and you have something special.
Tickets go on-sale Friday, March 4th at noon.

New Music: Glass Animals & Joey Bada$$ – “Lose Control”

7 Oct

FIRE!!!

Now that the festival has passed I am digging back into the internet for some new tunes and some possible artists for next year’s lineup. But, before I start posting like a wild fire, I’m even more excited for this collaboration featuring 2013 Life is Beautiful performer Joey Bada$$ and 2015 LIBers Glass Animals. I never would have seen this coming but I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised either after learning the artists had gotten together back in 2012. Fast forward a few years and voila! It’s got those funky, psychedelic beats of Glass Animals lingering at the beginning of the track but layered on top is a ferocious Joey Bada$$ with some beats that remind me of back in the day Timbaland. All I’m saying is give a listen and put on repeat.

Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 5 Days – Duran Duran

20 Sep

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!

Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 7 Days – Royal Blood

18 Sep

“I’ve seen the future of riff rock and it’s name is #RoyalBlood” – Tom Morello

And you know what, he’s right! The UK duo of ‎Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher absolutely destroy it on stage together. If you are a rock and roller, this is the one show of Life is Beautiful you cannot miss. And bring your earplugs because it’s going to be loud, in your face and righteous!

Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 8 Days – Run The Jewels

17 Sep

Hellooooooo Vegas! Run The Jewels = if you’ve never seen Killer Mike and El-P live, you’re missing out. Good thing we’re going to fix that for you on Sunday, September 27 at 7:55pm on the Ambassador Stage at Life is Beautiful. The duo just appeared last night on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, last weekend performed in the UK at Banksy’s Dismaland Bemusement Park (p.s. Banksy is coming to the festival!) and for the last two years have been simply, on fire!

To give you a taste of what to expect, here’s their performance from Bonnaroo this past summer.

 

Here’s a photo I snapped at SXSW this year. So good!

Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 10 Days – Rebelution, SOJA and The Green

14 Sep

Yep, 10 days out! It’s the homestretch and today’s featured artists are Rebelution, SOJA and The Green because this is the first year we have featured reggae at Life is Beautiful! As a reggae fan I’m stoked on this and definitely going to be feeling the good vibes when these three bands take the stage at the festival.

It’s gonna be hot, the sun will (hopefully) be shining and the drinks will be flowing.
