Watch: This Frozen/Game Of Thrones Mash-Up Titled Let It Go(T) Is Brilliant

"Snow blows white on The Wall tonight"
"Jon Snow never bothered me anyway"

So, what you get when you combine two of the most popular things in pop culture right now? Well, you get a mash-up music video titled Let It Go(T) which marries the insanely infection song Let It Go from Frozen with lyrics inspired by events that have taken place in HBO‘s adaption of Game of Thrones. For the most part, this video mash-up is pretty damn good … even if some of the lyrics could be tweaked a bit. Even still, you have to admit that it is a genius idea to combine Frozen and Game of Thrones in one clever video. Click above and enjoy. NOTE: the video assumes you’ve watched last week’s most recent episode of GoT so, the video may be spoilery.

Record Store Day 2014 Was A Smashing Success

The TV Guide

Each year, independent record stores in the US and the UK participate in Record Store Day where customers are lured into their shops to buy limited edition releases on vinyl, cassette, etc. In years past, I’ve had varying degrees of success on RSD, oftentimes resulting in tears more than joy. This year, two of my all-time favorite bands — Garbage and Veruca Salt — released NEW music in honor of RSD and I knew that I HAD to be successful in procuring those releases … or else. The Garbage single is limited to 4000 copies and the VS single is limited to 1000 copies — worldwide! After many hours of waiting in line, and after making a few new friends in the process, I am happy to say that I was completely successful today in that I was able to get a copy of everything on my list :) More »

Rufus Wainwright Brings His Show To LA

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way out to the beautiful Orpheum Theater in DTLA to see Rufus Wainwright in concert. I’ve been a big Rufus fan from the beginning, way back when he released his self-titled debut album in 1998. My first boyfriend and I saw Rufus many times on his first tour and I’ve since seen him in concert with a few different friends throughout the 00′s. The last time I saw him, he played The Greek Theater here in LA. Last night’s performance was just as fun as I remembered his shows to be. More »

First Listen: Kylie Minogue’s Record Store Day 2014 Single ‘Golden Boy’ Hits The Internets

Her Single of the YEAR!
"Now I'm bangin' on your door"

In honor of Record Store Day 2014, Kylie Minogue has released a limited edition 7″ single for a new track titled Golden Boy. Unfortunately, the single is only available internationally but thanks to the glory of the Internets, we can hear the song in the embed above. The song, quite honestly, is the best single she’s released in a very long time. It’s a shame that this song is only being released in this limited format because it’s really a spectacular song. Have a listen, see what you think. Don’t you wish Golden Boy was included on her new album Kiss Me Once?

First Listen: Prince Releases A NEW Song Titled ‘The Breakdown’

It's a slow jam

In the wake of the surprising but very exciting news that Prince has signed a new contract with his old record label Warner Bros. Records to release a NEW album as well as a bunch of old, previously unreleased material from his treasure trove of recordings from the 80′s, Prince has unleashed upon the world a new single titled The Breakdown. As I understand it, Prince performed this song in concert last Fall but just before midnight last night he released it officially for sale on iTunes. Have a listen of this new Prince track below.

Watch: Lindsay Lohan Confirms That She Is Writing NEW MUSIC

But ... the music is not for her
"I'm writing ..."

Last night, Lindsay Lohan appeared on Bravo‘s late night talk show Watch What Happens Live to talk about various things, including her infamous sex list. In the after show portion of WWHL last night which was not broadcast on TV, the subject of Lindsay‘s reported new music came up. Back in December we learned that Lindsay has been hanging out in a recording studio and it appeared that she was hard at work on new music for a possible new album. Lindsay confirms in the clip above that yes, she has been writing new music but unfortunately it’s not for her … it’s for her sister Aliana.

WHICH MEANS that Ali is planning to unleash music of her own upon the world. Heaven help us all.

Here Are 15 Years Of Coachella Festival Posters

O(+>, Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, Madonna & MORE!

The second weekend of the 2014 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicks off today and in honor of the music fest’s 15th year, I present to you all of the official posters that have been released listing all of the performers who have played Coachella since 1999. Back in the day, Coachella used to be a two-day festival but because of its growing popularity, it has since been expanded to a three-day festival … which is repeated over two different weekends. But, Coachella wasn’t successful from the get go. The first Coachella festival in 1999 did not make a profit … so it was cancelled in 2000. It resumed in 2001 and has been making LOADS of money ever since. Artists like Björk, The Cure, O(+> (aka Prince), Madonna, Oasis, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and The Killers have all headlined Coachella over its 15 year history. Click thru the gallery presented here to look back at all the acts that have played Coachella up to this weekend. Are any of you heading out to Indio, CA for weekend 2 of Coachella 2014? If so, have the best time ever!
