If you are living on the East Coast and already know about BAD VEINS from Cincinnati, Ohio, then I salute you. I might be a tad late on this one . . . I blame my location. I wish I could live in NYC for a few months out of the year . . . that way I could cover both coasts and not miss out on awesome new bands like this! (thanks to M H for the tip!)
HELL YA! Hit Of The Day - TIMBALAND 'Apoligize' (Feat. ONE REPUBLIC)
Funny how one day your band can be signed to a major label, dropped from the label after playing a bad show, then signed again to a different major label after Timbaland adds a killer beat to your already huge hit of a song . . . that's what happened to ONE REPUBLIC. Good times. Who's the man? Um yeah, turns out, it's Timbaland.
So I'm going to start posting a daily blog - entitled Hell Ya! Hit Of The Day! I was thinking about why I visit certain blogs on a daily basis - like JAX's ROCKINSIDER blog - which I always frequent to find out what shows are happening in LA. Since I'm not that organized, I figure I should stick with what I know best - GOOD SONGS. HELL YA! Hit Of The Day - 8/20/2007
If you like this as much as I do, come see Sam Sparro live when he plays HELL YA! Night on September 27th @ the Echo. If you can't wait that long, he is also playing August 25th @ Bordello (which is also his 'Black And Gold' CD release party! Big thanks to Scott Sterling (booker of the FOLD) who told me about Sam a while back. :)
p.s. If you want to see a good show tonight - come see Metro Station, Danger Radio & Forever The Sickest Kids @ the Knitting Factory! I'll be there - come say HI! I'll be the one dancing and singing along like a 15 yr old girl.
