This week, kids in all parts of this great United States have headed back to school. Yes, it’s the end of the summer, but no one tell that to the Rock Allegiance Tour, which kicked off in (Dallas/Fort Worth), TX yesterday. Though most of the artists on the R.A.T. tour are boisterous party-rock artists and the bill pretty much speaks for itself, no frills Rock at an affordable one day festival rate. Read more
Last weekend, we were lucky enough to catch the Sublime With Rome (SWR) and 311 show, as the Unity Tour 2011 stopped in Dallas. We’ve been covering SWR since last year, including a phone interview with Rome in April before the release of their lastest record, Yours Truly. It’s their first new, original music recorded since the addition of Rome to the current line-up. Watch as I get a few minutes to chat with the new lead singer as we discuss the tour, the new record, and some special exclusive news: Read more
I don’t know how else to put this without just saying it: Mac Miller is one of the most talented among the current crop of young, up and coming hip-hop stars. I’m referring to Big K.R.I.T., Kreayshawn, Lil B, and Odd Future. The unsigned MC hailing from Pittsburgh is constantly working and putting out new material. So far in 2011 he dropped an EP called On And On And Beyond, then his most recent release was a mixtape titled Best Day Ever. This video is the single for his new full length record, Blue Slide Park, set to come out later this fall on Rostrum Records. This isn’t the first time we have bragged about the boy, we also put him on an episode of our Unsigned and Wound Up podcast here.

Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to spend a few minutes talking to Blue October lead vocalist Justin Furstenfeld. Furstenfeld was driving to Dallas for the first show of their new tour to promote a new record, Any Man In America. Armed with a new experience, rather than product release, Blue October has an undeniable momentum building from some very unique changes. We chatted about the new release, tour opening artists and of course Young Buck?
So how does it feel to tour again? Read more

Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves. Which album not only set the artist atop of the industry, but stapled them in as musical gods.
This week, we take on Seattle grunge pioneers
This week we take on
The hip-hop duo The Cool Kids from Chicago have been been making mad music since 2006. They have opened for artists like M.I.A., and collaborated with performers like Lil Wayne. Their newest release is called When Fish Ride Bicycles, and this video from it is called “Bundle Up“. It is a behind the scenes, tongue in check look at the humorous side of hip-hop.
Calgary’s own folk-rock band, Raleigh is making quite a splash with their new offering, New Times in Black And White. Check out what the band has been enjoying lately: Read more
Welcome to another edition of Music Emissions Podcast of the Week…… To kill a cliche song, it’s been a while since we did a Themecast.
As for listing the track titles, that would make things a bit too easy. The first correct user who guesses the theme will receive $20, iTunes or Amazon store credit. Happy investigating!
