Her songs have been heard on BBC Radios 1, 2, 6 and BBC Scotland and she’s shared the stage with everyone from Razorlight to King Creosote.

Blind Pilot Returns to Lollapalooza!

Blind Pilot promo

Blind Pilot has come a long way from starting as a two man band into a now 6-piece ensemble. Back in 2008 they went on tour with their instruments strapped to their bikes. On that tour they made over two dozen stops along the West Coast up into Portland, Oregon.  That next year they were playing the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco, California and made their debut at Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Lollapalooza welcomes Blind Pilot back to Grant Park  this summer! They are also hitting the road debuting their sophomore album, We Are The Tide. The sophomore album follows their grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound, that sold over 50,000 albums and was featured in NPR’s “Best Music of 2008” roundup.  That year they also played the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco, California. This Portland-based band is a must see!

Lollapalooza is set for August 3-5, 2012 and tickets are getting very scarce! Check out ticket availability here.

Jack White Headlines Lollapalooza 2012

Jack White Hangout Music Festival Alabama 2012

Jack White is a busy man these days! Not only does he run his own label (Third Man Records), he plays in a slew of bands including the Raconteurs, and formerly the White Stripes, along with taking the production helm for several artists.  He is also on an extensive tour this summer including stops at the Hangout Music Festival and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

White’s current album, Blunderbuss, was released on April 24th on Third Man Records/Columbia Records and has already sold 137,554 copies domestically, debuting at #1 on the U.S. albums chart. It’s also experiences great success by hitting the #1 spot in the UK, Canada,  and Switzerland. If that weren’t impressive enough, Blunderbuss is in the running for the world record of  “the fastest named album in history.” This is pending at the moment, but since we are talking about world records, Third Man Records announced that Jack White has again decided to take on the challenge of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records this time for “most metaphors used in a single concert.”  Jack will continue to attempt this record for the remainder of this summer tour dates.  He also asks for fans not to interfere with his attempts during the shows, as it may led to disqualification.

Jack White will be playing Lollapalooza on Sunday August 5th. Sunday passes are still available!

To witness Jack White’s attempts at breaking the record, pick up tickets to one of the stops on his tour! The full itinerary is below.

Celebrate Memorial Day at 2012 Rocklahoma

2012 Rocklahoma
Pryor, OK
Friday-Sunday, May 25-27, 2012
Doors: 3:00 p.m.

Rocklahoma returns with yet another stellar lineup of top rock artists for a monstrous Memorial Day weekend party, May 25-27. The 2012 lineup features a variety of headliners and supporting acts that span several decades and genres of music. Creed, Rob Zombie and supergroup Chickenfoot will close each respective day’s festivities. With three stages and well over sixty hard rock acts, music will literally flow non-stop from early afternoon until late evening.

Guitar aficionados should be salivating to find Slash, Joe Satriani of Chickenfoot and Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine demonstrating their masterful fretwork in a live setting. Each has redefined music via their trademark styles, they are true pioneers of their craft. Those who prefer vocals need to look no further than Geoff Tate of Queensrÿche, his operatic voice is arguably one the the best in metal, past or present.

The festival also features a handful of bands that recently broke out on rock radio. Most notably, Chevelle and Volbeat have been around for years; yet both had their first Billboard #1 singles within the last few months. Both bands have been touring relentlessly and come in to Rocklahoma primed to impress. Other bands to appear that are currently sitting on hit singles, and on the verge of breaking out, include Janus, Redlight King, Aranda and New Medicine. Looking for a positive message with your music? P.O.D., Eve to Adam and Red are slated to perform Friday night and deliver a proclamation beyond the typical lyrical trifecta of sex, drugs and rock and roll.

Creed were among the top of the charts during the late ’90s. Their frontman Scott Stapp blew away the crowd when they opened their 2012 tour in Chicago a couple weeks ago. They’ll be looking to do the same in Pryor, OK at the top of Friday night’s lineup. The original members of The Darkness also recently reunited after five year hiatus. The British glam rockers brought 1980’s hair metal back to the forefront when “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” smashed the charts in 2003. They will perform on Saturday’s Rocklahoma lineup, hopefully with rumored new music in tow.

Official Rocklahoma line-ups for each day
Friday (May 25):  Creed, Slash, Chevelle, P.O.D., Cavo, Adelitas Way, Red, Redlight King, Janus, Eve to Adam, Beneath, Fist of Rage, Lynam, Pretty Little Suicide, Hessler, Down & Dirty, Ragdoll, Sunset Riot, Absence of Ink, For the Broken, Echo Fuzz, Shotgun Rebels, Soulicit, Rocker Lips and Mine Enemies Fall

Saturday (May 26): Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Theory of a Deadman, Volbeat, The Darkness, 10 Years, Pop Evil, Trivium, New Medicine, Anti-Mortem, Gypsy Pistoleros, Lillian Axe, Firstryke, S.E.X. Department, Ruff Justice, Switchblade Scarlett, On Fire, Villians Dance, Stun, Dagger, Unwritten Rulz, Echo Vendetta, A Good Fight and Sweatin Bullets

Sunday (May 27): Chickenfoot, Queensryche, Jackyl, Puddle of Mudd, Hellyeah, Black Stone Cherry, Art of Dying, Aranda, Charm City Devils, Rains, Falling in Reverse, Wildstreet, Black Tora, The Glitter Boys, Diemonds, Desi and Cody, David Castro Band, The Hawkeyes, We the Ghost, Through the Thorns.

Weekend general admission and VIP reserved seats are still available.  Individual single day general admission tickets are also on-sale now (Friday, Saturday or Sunday).  Don’t miss out on this blockbuster Memorial Day Weekend concert!  Arrive early and discover some new music.
