Dev Is No Joke with “The Night The Sun Came Up”, Released Today

Randomly and unexpectedly, we saw Dev live at the MTVU Woodie Awards at SXSW this year. Why do I say randomly, because I never had any intentions of going to something MTV, but damn, was I surprised. Dev put on a damn good show, and I can’t wait to hear this album in the clubs. Listen to “In My Trunk” below…

Live Music City at SXSW- Lil Wayne, Birdman, Big K.R.I.T., Alabam Shakes, Andrew Bird

So much goes on at SXSW in Austin, TX., that it can seem overwhelming at times, but in a good way… After our 24 hour non-stop road trip across half of the country we safely arrived in the music capital of the world for the week of March 12-18. With over 400 concerts a day, ridiculous surprise appearances, good old Texas BBQ, and more opportunities for connections and networking than ever imaginable.
The first night we saw The Nice Guys, A.Dd+, Future, Hopsin, Danny Brown, and surprise guest Mobb Deep Prodigy. Mobb Deep definitely made the night, especially with some old hits like “Got it Twisted” and “Outta Control”.
Wednesday, made our way to Big K.R.I.T, and had a blast getting the chance to hear tracks from his new album live in concert. This dude has so much energy and puts on a great show. Later that night, the rest of the team got to see 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Slaughterhouse, and a huge surprise guest Kanye West.

Team Live Music City attended a once in a life-time event, experiencing an unforgettable session with keynote speaker “The Boss”, Bruce Springsteen himself. He shared his musical influences throughout his life and giving advice and inspiration to all attendees. With some words of wisdom “The Boss” emphasized to us to “Create your own equation and have some fun” and that there’s “No right way of doing it”. He closed the talk with having the entire audience sing “This Land Is You Land”, which brought tears to some.
Later, we enjoyed quite an array of performances from Machine Gun Kelly, Fun, Dev, Of Verona, Santigold, The Wallpapers, Walk, Chiddy Bang, Tom P, Kimbra, Gary Clark Jr., Walk the Moon, and DJ Pauly D.
The night continued with me winning a ticket to see Bruce Springsteen live in concert. Its like he’s never aged and ripped the stage apart. I met up with the rest of the team and got to see one of the best hip-hop shows yet, Lil Wayne, who brought out Chanel, Bow Wow, Cory Gunz, and to top it off Birdman.
Much more to come, so stay tuned….

FINALLY! The Shins video to “Simple Song” is out!

One of the best music videos I have seen in a long, long time… yeah, I’m sure you hear this all the time, BUT THIS IS THE ONE! If you missed the release of The Shins video “Simple Song”, take a few minutes from your ever so busy day, and experience the emotional rollercoaster that the Shins take you on. You’ll start with a bit of sorrow, and quickly gain an energetic boost of excitement, followed by remorse, and joyfully wrapping it up with the great feeling of belonging to a family.
I know… I’ve said too much and should’ve give the “Spoiler Alert”, but oh well, you’ll watch it anyways.
Another gem to check out at SXSW 2012.

Get down with T Bird and the Breaks-“Dancehall Freakin”, new EP

Austin has been pumping out great musicians for quite a while now, and we have another to add to that list. T. Bird and the Breaks are an amazing group and so well-rounded. I love when I come across a band that knows how to get me up and moving to their music, and it seems like horns and saxophones always give me this vibe.

When I first heard T Bird and the Breaks, I would describe their sound to be a cross of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Brown, and Stevie Wonder, with a little crunch it. If you’re headed to SXSW, go check them out. Have a listen to them at the link below, provided by MOKB (My Old Kentucky Blog).
