Dell And Intel Present The First-Ever Noisey.com College Tour Co-Starring Neon Indian And Kreayshawn
VICE, in concert with Dell and Intel, is pleased to announce the first-ever Noisey College Tour, a two-week, ten-city music tour co-starring chillwave indie rock darling Neon Indian and video hitmaker/rapper Kreayshawn.
Noisey was launched with the mission of creating an online music destination that showcases the best bands from all over the planet, presenting a global snapshot of music and youth culture from 11 countries worldwide. With the Noisey College Tour, VICE is taking Noisey Tour.com offline for the first time ever. But the mission remains the same, to showcase great bands for the fans. The tour is being presented by Dell and Intel and is supported by Rdio, a free, unlimited, on-demand social music service.
Students and fans can go to www.Noisey.com/CollegeTour to learn more about the tour as well as check out upcoming tour updates from the bands themselves.

Coming off a stellar performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Alan Palomo’s chillwave project Neon Indian will be performing tracks from the critically-acclaimed album Era Extrana. Co-headlining with Neon Indian on the Noisey College Tour, will be Oakland rapper, videographer, and recent VMA Best New Artist nominee Kreayshawn, whose infectious hit song “Gucci Gucci” became the song of the summer when it infiltrated house parties and airwaves from Cali to London. With the spotlight on both of these eclectic artists, plan on 2012 being a big year for them both.
“Dell is sharing our passion for music by bringing real-time, live music events like the Austin City Limits Festival and Lollapalooza online and into the living room,” said Michael Tatelman, Dell’s vice president of North America Consumer Sales and Marketing. “Now, in conjunction with Noisey.com, we invite our college student fans across the nation to share in the new music discovery experience live and join us for the official Noisey.com concert tour event, free for students, and coming to a college near you.”
Valerie Wilkinson, director of OEM Co-Marketing Group at Intel, shared: “Every day, college students are using Intel Core technology to discover, create and share music. Intel is excited to bring the Noisey.com platform live to these great college towns in the U.S., showcasing the unique performances of two of the world’s up and coming artists who are innovators in their own right and using technology in their creation of music.”
