Kickstarter My Heart
For the past 10 years, Detroit filmmakers James R. Petix and Sarah Biblia have been working tireless on a new music documentary about the Detroit garage rock scene titled It Came From Detroit and at long last the film is ready for release. Starting today, YOU can make a donation on the film’s Kickstarter page to help get the documentary into production. The filmmakers themselves can better explain the documentary than I ever can but in a nutshell, it’s an exciting inside look at the Detroit music scene that has given birth to bands like White Stripes, Von Bondies, The Detroit Cobras, Gore Gore Girls and many, many more. I think it’s no secret that Detroit and it’s thriving and exciting music scene is very near and dear to my heart so I’m really hoping to do all that I can to help get this film into the hands of fans. Click below to learn more about It Came From Detroit and learn how YOU can help get the film released. More »

Early last year, during a much happier time in my life, I was able to see Björk perform live in concert her newest album Biophilia at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY. Last night, at long last, Björk brought her tour to LA. Last night’s performance was the first of 3 shows that Björk has planned for LA … two shows at the Hollywood Palladium (this week) and one at the Hollywood Bowl (next week). I was fortunate enough to get tix to all 3 shows because these are the last shows of the tour … and Björk is likely to go back to Iceland for a number of years. Her performance last night was just as electric as the show I saw back in NYC. It really felt like a privilege to see her live again. More »
A few weeks ago the audio of Britney Spears‘s new single Ooh La La leaked its way to the Internets well ahead of its scheduled release date of June 25. Today, still a few weeks away from the single release, we get our first look at the cover art for the single. Walmart will be among the retailers that will have Ooh La La for sale and they have updated their official website with the single cover art. Unfortunately, our dear Britney does not appear on the cover art but considering the single is meant for an animated film soundtrack, I guess that’s to be expected. Check out the cover art below.
