Express yourself, release it, go.. attack the floor and work it low.
There are a lot of good bands coming out of Australia these days with this dance-y indie sound. I would definitely want to see these guys live!
Starting out, all I knew of Wallpaper was his music video/ song #STUPiDFACEDD (pretty hilarious). This year, I was in Austin for SXSW with Jamie. When we were driving around in the rental car he asked if he could play “Good 4 It” loud. I said “Of course!” who doesn’t like loud music?? From that moment on I was changed. This song IS amazing loud (has that epic sound) and has some of the best memories tied to it. Definitely a music moment I won’t forget. Later, I found out that Wallpaper’s real name is Ricky Reed, whose real name is Eric and he used to be a front man in a band called Facing New York that would play at the small teen center I booked bands for. I have some demos!
Diplo is playing BFD…can we expect some of this on Sunday?
BruceLee statue at Tsim Sha Tsui. Went there couple weeks ago, they got pretty bad ass view of the bay. Definitely a great place to visit in hong kong, and a band that I would see if I were to go to BFD this year #BFD2013
In 2001 I went to Boston to visit a friend on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. On that Friday night I developed a stomach ache and decided to treat it “medicinally” (think something you might inhale to get rid of nausea). The ache became unbearable, so I treated it with copious amounts of “medicine.” In the middle of the night I was severely under the influence and in extreme pain on my friends floor. Someone put this album on and I listened to it on repeat in a surreal state of mind for the next several hours. Finally at daybreak I convinced my friend to take me to the hospital. I had an emergency appendectomy. I will never forget the state of mind I was in while listening to this record. I’ll always love it for that reason, and for it being a phenomenal record.

Can you guess who these guys are? It’s Daft Punk! Apparently they are “Human After All.”
This single, came out in 1996. Their second single to be exact, two years after “The New Wave.”

Posted almost a week ago, this video is starting to go viral. Watch as Jimmy Fallon and actor John Krasinski go head to head in a lip sync-off. From Boyz II Men to Katy Perry, this is pretty damn entertaining.
Who do you think is the winner?
