• 5 Ways a Popular Beer Brand Is Making Coachella Even Better 

    Festivals like Coachella offer impressive lineups and promise a good time – it’s true. But they have also become synonymous with sweaty, stinky crowds of people pushing back and forth through a maze of humanity to catch about three to five bands a day, if they are lucky. The heat can be a real buzzkill too. And what is a fan to do, really; Bring their own beer to the camp ground and have it go warm because there is no ice within five miles of the festival grounds? Gross. “Well, not so fast,” says Heineken. For the 12th year in a row, the beer brand is back at Coachella, not only as the festival’s official beer beverage, but also as a creative partner pulling out all stops to enhance the festival experience for fans in attendance.

  • RSVLTS Coachella Adventure [75 HQ Photos]

    This past weekend we went to the first weekend of Coachella Arts and Music Festival at Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Ca. At the festival we saw some incredible bands perform, met hundreds of music fans, went celebrity spotting in the various VIP sections and drank icy cool beers in the Heineken Dome. Luckily we were able to score a coveted photo pass that allowed us to be one of the few publications allowed to roam around with a professional camera. We used a Nikon 5200 with a 16-35mm lens which helped us capture these excellent pictures. If you spot yourself or someone you know feel free to download the pictures and share on Facebook. 

  • Insiders Look At Heineken’s Coachella Dome Dance Party [15 HQ Photos]

    Here is a pro tip for anyone attending weekend two of Coachella. Beat the heat, enjoy good music and get a quick beer at the Heineken Domes. Beyond providing the only wi-fi access on the entire festival grounds and music from DJs like White Noize, the Heineken Domes are also chilled with massive air conditioners providing concert goers relief from the heat and a pretty epic dance party. We spent a lot of time in the Domes over the weekend and if you couldn’t make it out to the festival here is what you missed.

  • Transparent Speaker

    Minimalist music boxes are all the rage with the young professionals these days. For good quality sound within a relatively small dwelling space the aesthetics and sound quality with ipod docks are skyrocketing. Full surround sound speakers aren’t worth the time and installment for an apartment or humble siez living quarters. The Transparent Speaker also blends in to any living environment with very subtle black accents. Transparent Speaker

  • How Justin Timberlake Was Pulled Back Into Music By A $20 Million Concert Deal

    Just when Justin Timberlake was out, they pulled him back in – to music, that is. Timberlake has finally followed up his FutureSex/LoveSounds, released in 2006, with The 20/20 Experience, which sold 968,000 copies during its first week. Not too shabby, especially considering that Timberlake was not quite ready to redirect his attention to music any time soon. “I don’t have a single song ready to go,” said Timberlake to Playboy back in May 2011, prompting some media outlets to jump the gun and announce that he was quitting music for good. “People keep asking me when a new song or album is coming out, and I don’t know what to say. Music is not my focus right now. It may be someday. It could happen next month or next year but right now it’s not where it’s at for me.” Timberlake wanted to concentrate on acting. While getting back into music wasn’t entirely out of the question, it looks like his sudden return was spurred on not by a desire to jump back in, but rather out of a contractual obligation with Live Nation. As it turns out, a cool $20 million was on the line in a concert more »

  • 50 Years Ago Today The Beatles Started Out On The Path To World Domination

    Before Beatlemania and The Ed Sullivan Show; before they met Queen Elizabeth and smoked pot with Bob Dylan; before they sprouted drooping mustaches, dropped acid, discovered sitars and pilgrimaged to the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Himalayan retreat; before John met Yoko, before the walrus was Paul; before they took over popular music and, um, transformed Western culture – before all that, at 10 in the morning on February 11th, 1963, the Beatles were merely the world’s finest little rock & roll band, gathered at Abbey Road studios in London to make a debut album. Twelve hours later, they’d done it. Of all the astonishing things about Please Please Me – and there are many – the most impressive may simply be the quick-and-dirty haste with which it was recorded. In 2011, it can take a band a dozen hours to mike the kick drum. But in a single long day – with just a £400 budget – the Beatles laid down 10 songs for their album, including some of their most indelible early performances: “I Saw Her Standing There,” “There’s a Place,” “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” “Baby It’s You.” The day’s work wrapped up, sometime around 10:45, with more »

  • Justin Timberlake ’20/20 Experience’ Volume Two Coming Later This Year Says Questlove

    Hot on the heels of his highly anticipated SNL hosting gig and following a weeklong stint on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon alongside the Roots, Justin Timberlake gears up for the release of 20/20 Experience this week. For the past few months, Timberlake was hard at work promoting the new album, his first since FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006. The latest member inducted into SNL’s elite Five-Timers Club will join Jay-Z for the Legends of Summer tour and co-headline the Yahoo! On The Road tour that hits 14 cities within the United States kicking off in New York City on May 3 and ending in San Francisco in May 31. Still, the new album, Legends tour and festival appearances notwithstanding, the item generating a huge amount of buzz is news that a followup album to “20/20 Experience” could hit just a few months from now. The Roots drummer Questlove got the inside scoop. “Spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now . . . 10 songs later= 20 vision),” he posted on an Okayplayer chat board over the weekend. Yes, that’s right. He is saying a second album will be released sometime around November. 10 songs on this album + 10 more »
