O.A.R. & Phillip Phillips Summer Tour

unnamed (1)
Rock band O.A.R. and singer Phillip Phillips announced their joint summer tour will benefit Habitat for Humanity to support the organization’s mission of providing safe, decent, affordable housing in partnership with low-income families.“Home means everything to us. It’s our DNA. It’s who we are,” said Marc Roberge of O.A.R.  “We had the chance to meet amazing people building Habitat for Humanity homes in LA, pouring love and sweat into the foundation, taking pride in the work they were doing, alongside the Habitat partner family, and it was an honor to be a part of that. Words can’t properly describe the positive swell that brought to our hearts. We hope the donation from our tour will help families, like the ones we met, achieve their dreams of homeownership.”

The 24-city joint tour kicks off in St. Louis today and wraps up in Atlanta on July 26. For every ticket sold, O.A.R. and Phillip Phillips will donate $1 to Habitat. The tour will also host online auctions for a VIP experience in each city, including two premium tickets and an opportunity to meet with the artists. Proceeds from the auctions will go to local Habitat affiliates.

“My team has personally seen the incredible impact Habitat for Humanity can have on lives. We have worked on builds from the Musician’s Village rebuild in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina to local neighborhoods in my community,” said Phillip Phillips. “Habitat’s roots stem from my home state of Georgia but their reach is now worldwide  I am honored to partner with Habitat for Humanity in carrying out their mission – to build homes, communities, and hope.”

The artists will also donate 10 concert tickets to the Habitat for Humanity affiliate in each tour city, for use by Habitat volunteers and staff, as well as Habitat partner homeowner families, who they will meet at each tour stop. Habitat affiliates will be provided with space at each venue to raise awareness about their affordable housing work within their communities.

“O.A.R. and Phillip Phillips share our passion for helping low-income families realize the dream of homeownership,” said Colleen Ridenhour, deputy director of Corporate, Foundation and Institution Relations for Habitat for Humanity International. “We are honored to be recognized during their summer tour and are grateful for their generosity in helping raise funds to create safe, decent, affordable housing.”

Summerland Tour 2014


One of Rolling Stone‘s “10 Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012,” the 3rd annual 90’s alternative music tour is proud to announce Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6, and Spacehog to perform at each of 2014’s “Summerland Tour” dates.

With many smash hit singles and millions of albums sold between them, the four bands comprising this year’s Summerland Tour still have a constant presence on the airwaves across the country and represent a true value for concert fans.  With songs like “Father of Mine,” “Santa Monica,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” “Somebody To Shove,” “Runaway Train,” “Think Twice,” and “In the Meantime” being performed nightly, Summerland 2014 is set to provide the best soundtrack to a great summer’s evening.

The 90’s nostalgia tour was formed in 2012 by Art Alexakis, lead guitarist and vocalist of Everclear.  The tour has featured classic throwback bands such as Gin Blossoms, Lit, Sugar Ray, Marcy Playground, Live, Filter, and Sponge.

“This tour just seems to get better and better every year.  Both the bands and the fans are starting to connect with the name Summerland.  It seems like it’s becoming synonymous with ’90’s Alternative Rock,” said Alexakis.  He started the tour to bring some of the most well-known alternative 90’s bands back to today’s rock music scene.

SUMMERLAND TOUR 2014 will kick off on June 13th in Pompano Beach, FL and will be stopping in over 30 cities across the US.  Tickets go on sale starting March 7 at 10 am (in select markets).  Visit www.summerlandtour.net for further details.

New Tour Dates and Remix From Smallpools


Smallpools, the Los Angeles 4-piece announce two new tours today. After headlining the sold out Neon Gold’s Popshop West party on September 4th, the band will divide their time between the studio working on the full-length debut and touring with Walk The Moon in October and 21 Pilots in November.  The foursome consist of Sean (vocals/keys), Mike (guitar), Joe (bass) and Beau (drums), just finished their tour with San Cisco to a wild response.The release of their self-titled debut EP gained them critical acclaim. Neon Gold calls “Mason Jar” “a sepia splash of power-pop that crystallizes into a starscraping smash before the verse even kicks in, as stadium-sized Of Monsters And Men gang vocals ride high on the buoyant flair of Smallpools’ youthful, Two Door-esque ebullience.”

Their first single “Dreaming” was produced by Captain Cuts and instantly shot to #1 of Hype Machine within the first 3 days of its revealing. Check out where I originally posted “Dreaming” and a couple other remixes here AND check out the latest remix below.

Girl Talk at Stage AE

Pittsburgh native Greg Gillis (better known as Girl Talk) was the first to give a show at brand new Stage AE next to Heinz Field. I love everything about Girl Talk and with this being my third show, I was excited to see how all would fare in the new venue.
