Festival late night sets announced

April 26, 2010

 Who’s counting down for music festival season? 

The season is fastly approaching all of us music fans and festivals around the country are putting their final touches on set lists and other features.  The whole music festival experience is indeed a unique and eye opening one, and any music fan should try and experience at least one music festival.  Or maybe ten.

Music festivals give fans a chance to see a wide variety of bands and musicians with people that share the same passion and love for music as you do.  There is nothing but good vibes and happiness at the festivals, and everyone in attendance is just thrilled to be alive listening to incredible music in a gorgeous location. 

For the bands, playing a major music festival is a huge accomplishment for them and it could probably be the biggest show the band has ever played.  This results in some of the best sets of live music you will ever see which alone will make you want to come back again and again.  Some of the craziest sets at music festivals are the late night sets.  By this point, everybody is really pumped after seeing the headlining band play and the late night sets always seem to result in the biggest parties and raves.

“Distant Relatives” release date pushed back

April 1, 2010

Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley’s much anticipated album “Distant Relatives” is being pushed back to hit the stores Tuesday, May 18.

Nas and Marley have been writing and producing the album for over a year, and many people in the hip-hop and music industry are excited for what’s in store from the two solid musicians.

“Distant Relatives” combines Marley’s instrumentation and rhymes with the flow and hard-hitting beats Nas has bought to the table for years. Nas and Marley are trying to bring more awareness to the many hardships taking place in Africa, and all proceeds of the album will go toward building a school in Congo.

Nas and Marley plan to hit the road this summer to support their new album and will be making stops at the popular summer music festival Bonnaroo in early June.

“Distant Relatives” should be a great album and fans of these two musicians should be sure to check this album out.
