Check out the new single from All Time Low and catch them out on Summer headline tour!

June 1, 2017

  All Time Low have released a new single from their anticipated new LP LAST YOUNG RENEGADE.  The track is called Good Times and you can take a listen here and watch their new lyric video: Frontman Alex Gaskarth commented on “Good Times” stating, “Good Times is the first song we wrote for the album, and the cornerstone of the entire record. Writing this song set us on a path that would lead to this world of night drives, rain slicked streets, and the neon hum of a small town fit for escaping. Without ‘Good Times’, the LAST YOUNG RENEGADE wouldn’t exist. I’m thankful to have found this song in the creative ether, and doubly so for the reflections in the lyrics that inspired this big adventure. I won’t forget.” You can pick up the new album LAST YOUNG RENEGADE  this Friday, June 2nd. 1. Last Young Renegade 2. Drugs & Candy 3. Dirty Laundry 4. Good Times 5. Nice2KnoU 6. Life Of The Party 7.

Only days after their kick ass set at BottleRock, Foo Fighters release new single and video for “Run”

June 1, 2017

  Foo Fighters delivered a killer set at BottleRock 2017 this past weekend. The crowd had camped out early on the grass all day long, to get a prime spot for the final band on the JaM Cellars Stage.  It was great for us to finally watch them perform since the last time we had quite an experience at Salesforce Dreamfest in 2015. Our photographer suffered several injuries and a busted camera after what was definitely a Corporate Riot!  But fast forward to Sunday night and the excellent security and planning of BottleRock, there were no signs of any injuries or crowd control issues. The wowed the crowd and even hinted that they might have a full album already recorded. Check out the photos from their set: We are anxiously waiting for a new album and today we were treated to a new single and video for their track, Run. The video was directed by Dave Grohl and has the band disguised as old men. The track is a bad ass song that really brings [Read More]

Interview with Justin of Blue October ahead of their stellar performance at The Fillmore in San Francisco

May 20, 2017

  Earlier this week we headed to the legendary Fillmore as Blue October brought the Heart Go Bang Tour to San Francisco. We have impatiently waited for this date to arrive. See, Blue October was not just another band for us to cover, they are a band that had provided the playlist to my life’s ups and downs for the past 20 years. Most recently in March, during my Mother’s hospice care at home, she would lay next to me and listen to Blue October, nearly silent for days, yet show would respond and tell me she liked the songs. Her favorite during that time, The Feel Again, (Stay).  What a heavy song and yet, I truly clutched to those words… Stay… selfishly I wanted more time with her.  After she passed away, I could feel the dark depression setting in as it had with my Father 5 years earlier. But I turned to music and once again to Blue October. Their latest album, Home which shot up the charts to a No. 1 spot [Read More]

  Michael Franti & Spearhead return to the BottleRock Napa 2017 Festival. This is one must see set as it is an experience that you will not soon forget.

New Politics release new song, One of Us and it is soon to be fan favorite!

March 10, 2017

New Politics have been up to something really good… They have just released their new track, One of Us and it will soon become one of your favorite tracks! The catchy tune lets you know you are never alone, you are one of us! Check it out here: I can remember the first time we saw New Politics band in 2010 at Slim’s in San Francisco. From the first few seconds of their set, we were instantly hooked. They drew us in with their high energy set and infectious music. Over the years, they have truly developed their own style and sound that holds no boundaries. It is inviting to all and truly gets you amped.  We featured them back in 2011 as one of our Top Ten Bands. Check that article out here. New Politics will be busy playing at SXSW and we hope they plan a tour with some California dates. We are getting withdrawals! Have you ever seen our interview with them when they played at Uproar Festival a few years back. If [Read More]
