While the music world comes to terms with the massive loss of the passing of Adam Yauch, people all around the world are paying tribute to him in various ways. One of the more beautiful things I have come across today is Coldplay’s tribute to Adam through their emotional, slow rendition of the Beastie Boys’ classic, “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party).” During their Friday night show at the Hollywood Bowl, Chris Martin and the boys performed a very moving musical tribute. I am sure Adam was watching and would be proud. If you didn’t catch it, check it out here.. More »

There's Nothing Like It
Last night Usher Raymond revealed some of the music from his new album, Looking For Myself, in a specially designed Fuerza Bruta show at the Daryl Roth Theater in NYC. For those of you that haven’t seen or heard of Fuerza Bruta, it is a totally unique production which brings together a kind of acrobatic performance with the sounds and lights of a nightclub. By all accounts, the show was the perfect showcase for Usher’s seventh album which has been described as a dance R&B fusion. Check out some pics from the production and a video trailer to get a better idea what the have-to-be-seen-to-be-believed show is about.. More »
