Stream Both Days of Budweiser’s Made in America Festival

madeinamerica

Jay-Z and Budweiser’s third annual Made in America Festival has officially kicked off in Philadelphia with a laundry list of artists slated to take the stage at the first of two show. Tomorrow, the festival will be heading across the country to Los Angeles for its inaugural show slated to take place on the steps of city hall and the surrounding area of Grand Park.

For those not able to make it to Philly or Los Angeles, there’s no need to fear because the festival will be broadcasting several of the performances for those unfortunate people. Funny enough, it’s becoming the norm for high profiled festivals to do this, which is a welcome reprise for those who can’t make it or afford it.

To watch the shows as they happen, all you need to do is click here and you will be taken to the Made in America Festival’s website where the live stream will populate the screen.

To keep up with who’s performing on which date, you can find the line-ups for both Philadelphia and Los Angeles at those links.

Maroon 5’s “Heart is Open” with Gwen Stefani

image

Gwen Stefani hasn’t even made her official debut as one of the new judges on this season of The Voice, but she might have a little more experience than the other judges since you know she’s had a killer career as a frontwoman and a solo artists (among other things).

Today, a new song featuring her and fellow judge Adam Levine and his band, Maroon 5, has surfaced.

The piano-driven song is titled “My Heart is Open” and will be featured on Maroon 5’s upcoming album V. The song is already shaping up to be an instant hit not only because of Stefani and Levine, but because it was penned by super-songwriter Sia.

Whatever our favorite bleach-blonde songwriter touches often turns to gold.
Check out the audio of the track below.

It’s been months since Stefani was confirmed to be taking over the red spinning chair which only happened after days of the internet claiming it would happen. The No Doubt frontwoman finally confirmed the rumors through Instagram with a photo of her hand holding a microphone and doing the “V” logo. Like the internet had claimed, Stefani would be taking over for Christina Aguilera, who would not be able to judge this season due to her second pregnancy.

This season marks the debut of not only Stefani, but Pharrell Williams who will be filling in the slot that normally would have been taken by Cee Lo Green and his car Purrfect. The larger than life performer, and his feline, had announced he would be leaving the show, for good, for something else. Returning once again to the show as judges this season are the bro-mancers, Levine and country singer Blake Shelton.

The Voice’s new season is slated to return sometime this upcoming Fall season. No specific return date has been given.

Bruce Springsteen to Release Cowboy Graphic Novel

image

Bruce Springsteen can now add graphic novel writer to his long list of accomplishments. It was announced that the Boss is currently working on a graphic novel which will be based on 2009’s “Outlaw Pete” from his album, Working on a Dream.

The song was directly inspired by the 1950’s children’s book, Brave Cowboy Bill which Springsteen’s mother, allegedly, read to him as a child. That went on to inspire the tale of the cowboy.

“Like Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, Dorothy Gale, and for me, even Popeye, Outlaw Pete cuts deep into the folklore of out country and weaves its way into the fabric of great American literary characters.” said illustrator Frank Caruso about the joint venture between him and Springsteen.

“Outlaw Pete is essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins” chimed in Springsteen about the book.

“When Bruce wrote “Outlaw Pete,” he didn’t just write a great song, he created a great character,” Caruso added.

The novel, which is set to be released on November 4, will feature “words” by Springsteen while all animation will be done by Caruso. At present time, there’s no clarification on whether that means Springsteen will be writing the actual text for the book or if he’ll be giving ideas to someone else to write.

“The first time I heard the song, this book played out in my head.”

Springsteen released his eighteenth studio album, High Hopes at the beginning of the year and has been tour relentlessly behind it, though, things have gotten quiet down on the touring front for the New Jersey icon, recently.

Watch Underoath Perform Circa 1998

image

This year, it feels like many old footage from some of our favorite band have been found and today, a new piece of old treasure was found.

Thanks to YouTube user, Chad Fair, footage of Underoath circa 1998 has surfaced. Since the band was formed back in 1997, it would appear that it might be one of their first shows. At the time of the shoot, the newly-formed band from North Florida had been opening for Blindside.

You can tell that the video is from the beginning because most of the song that had been performed were from their EP, Act of Depression and if you look, there’s no sight of second vocalist Spencer Chamberlain and Dallas Taylor was frontman.

At the time of the video, the line up included Taylor, Luke Morton, Corey Steger, Octavio Fernandez, and baby Aaron Gillespie.

Fast forward to 2012, when the band official announced their plan to disband and you will realized that none of the original members were in the band. Boy, how the years change things.

Check out the video below.
