So this weeks music spotlight goes to our friends “30 Seconds to Mars.” We had the honor of meeting and hanging out with these guys a few years ago along with having our faces be a part of their last album art on “This Is War.” We’re real stoked for their latest album to be released this coming May 21st. The album is titled “Love Lust Faith + Dreams” and can be pre-ordered here.
Not only is the band dedicated to their music, but also to their passion for art and film. Check out their latest single and video to go with it.
This is “Up In The Air”…
We came across some rare color photos from the Library of Congress that are from the 1930′s and 1940′s. We selected a few of our favorites from the batch and posted them here to share them with you all. We think they tell a subtle story about how things used to be and give us a better perspective of where things have gone. Back then life was so much more simple (so we’re told).
If you could go back to these days…would you?
This weeks song of the week is Skeleton Boy by Friendly Fires. A good upbeat song from a few years back will get your feet shuffling. Give it a listen, enjoy, and have a great weekend.

This Saturday was my beautiful wife’s 31st birthday, and we spent the evening in NYC at the Roseland Ballroom.
From the minute we stepped foot in the venue doors, the night was about to get much more energetic. We made our way towards the front third and center of the room and got ready. We had 3 reasons for going to the Roseland that night, and they were: Imagine Dragons, Atlas Genius, and a good time. We were pleasantly surprised when Nico Vega, a band we hadn’t heard of before the night, took stage…
This barefooted lead singer came out and made her mark with the first note that came out of her mouth. She was sure to be heard and her band backed her up.
It’s not only important to rock-out and be great at what you do, but it’s just as important to get the audience involved and entertained. If we wanted to stand and watch someone sitting down playing the guitar with no energy, we’d go to an Aaron Lewis concert.
This was anything but dull from the start. Listen to Nico Vega here.
Then it was time for Part I of the Part II show we’ve been waiting for. It was time for Atlas Genius to take stage and bring the energy in the room to a new level. The four Aussie’s took stage and got right down to it.
Atlas Genius has been getting good air time lately with a few songs you may have heard like “Trojans”, “Symptoms”, or their newest single “If So.”
They would pause for a minute or two between every other song or so and talk to the crowd, take photos of everyone for their website, Instagram, facebook, Twitter, whatever. They’ve made a good name for themselves over the past few years and it goes to show beyond their musicial talents that they are down-to-earth, real nice guys. Shortly after their set, the lead singer, Keith, made his way near the merch tables to hang out with fans, take photos, and hear any feedback that came his way. That’s pretty awesome.
Check out their website to sample some of their music, view their tour dates, and support the band…they’ve earned it. After playing through an amazing setlist, they cleared off stage and made room for the crew to come out and prep the stage for the nights headliners…Imagine Dragons.
For a band like Imagine Dragons who have only been around since 2008, it’s hard to believe they have such an electric stage presence with unbelievably tight instrumentals and spot on harmonies. They went from playing at Piano Bar across the street last year to being SOLD OUT IN 15 MINUTES at the Roseland Ballroom. If that doesn’t make them feel good, I can’t imagine (no pun intended) what will.
These guys were straight up killing it in every way. They had everyone jumping and singing along to the beat, along with fans crowd surfing to the stage. Their setup was perfect with their live but ”studio” sound.
I could go on and on about how great of a show it was, but for the sake of keeping this post fairly short and somewhat a quick read, I”ll let the photos do the talking.
This show was Radioactive.
Check these guys out here and catch them in concert when they’re near your area. We’re glad we did and so will you.
