If you've ever wondered what it's like to put together a massive concert or be backstage before it all happens you need to see this. Muse released Live At Rome Olympic Stadium earlier this week on DVD/CD and apparently they started rolling the cameras long before the show started. Pyro, lasers, actors, this show has it all.
I never realized how much the music from this album sounded like a James Bond film...
Kid Felix have only been around for two years. They've got two EPs and they've already made a massive name for themselves. They've played everywhere from Bamboozle to Suquehanna Bank Center to The TLA and they have an After Christmas show happening at World Cafe Live on December 26th! If you haven't heard the name before--check out Live At Five and get into it!
Panic! At The Disco has one of the weirdest backstories I have ever heard. They started as a blink-182 cover band but then decided to write their own music. In 2004 they sent their demos around thought they may as well send one to Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy because...why not? Despite the fact he had never seen the band live (because they had never played live) Pete signed them! Shortly thereafter Panic! At The Disco hit the road and this is video from one of those shows...
One of the things we see time and time again on Throwback Thursday Videos is people walking right past the band playing on stage or maybe 15 people in front of them. Look at these guys...the show is packed and people are singing along already!
Now you know why they already sold out that Radio 104.5 show at The Electric Factory and their Radio 104.5 Summer Block Party was the biggest one we have ever seen!
Young The Giant is amazing on stage but they also do well on the side of the road, in a park, under a bridge, and oceanside. These are just a few of the places they have done some of their In The Open Sessions. From what I understand it spawned from the band touring the states and driving through scenery that inspired them so they stopped, grabbed their guitars, and hit record. They are not flashy, there's no special effects, and they are all shot in one take.
This time they landed in Spicewood, Texas at Krause Springs.
Beck finally has a new album coming in February entitled Morning Phase. He actually has confirmed TWO new albums coming but this is the only one we have details on so far. He says it will be very similar to his album Sea Change (which put me in the fetal postion on the floor) and even some of the same musicians will be playing on this album.

This is pretty inspiring. Artist Pedro Reyes has taken weapons created for violence and repurposed them as instruments.
