  • Do312’s Celebrity Kickball Game at Lollapalooza This Saturday!

    Date: Saturday, July 4, 2012
    Time:11:15 a.m.
    Place: Grant Park/Lollapalooza Grounds
    Who:  Many celebrities

    do312 celebrity kickball game

    For the past 2 years the Celebrity Kickball game at Lollapalooza has been quite entertaining.  Most observers that arrived at Lolla early on Saturday ran into the game in full kick-ass mode.  Some walked right past as the likes of Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings) and Aaron Paul (Prison Break) showed the crowd their kickball skills, or maybe lack of. This year Aaron Paul is back and will be joined by Chris Holmes, Greg Corner, Har Mar Superstar, Ryan Paradise, Dave Ziebarth, Kaylee from Gossip Girl and more!

    So where do you find the kickball game? The game starts at 11:15 a.m. and last year it took place in front of the North side stage, which would be The Red Bull Soundstage this year.

    FYI this year the game is presented by Groupon and Fender donated a trophy for the winning team!

    Kid Rock and The Detroit Symphony Orchestra Team Up to Keep Music in Detroit

    Detroit Symphony Orchestra logo

    Kid Rock is joining forces with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to keep the DSO in Detroit.  It’s all set to take place on May 12, 2012 at 8 p.m. at the legendary Fox Theatre.  The one-night only show is set to raise a cool $1 million to help save the DSO.

    Tickets start at $100, $150, $250, $250 and a limited number of “Rock the Symhony” VIP packages. The VIP package includes premium seating and access to the exclusive after party.

    “As a musician, and of course a Detroiter, I am proud to be supporting this longstanding cultural institution,” said Kid Rock.  “And while I know these ticket prices are more than what my fans are used to paying, I am confident that whatever happens when we put the Twisted Brown Trucker Band, a 80 piece orchestra, and ‘Bawitdaba’ together will be well worth the price of admission.”

    Kid Rock, The Fox Theatre, and Leonard Slatkin “America’s Music Director” are all all volunteering their services for the night.  This means everything made from the show is going directly to the Detroit Symphony, which also funds outreach, engagment, and community service work in schools, hospitals, retirement centers, places of worshiop, and community centers across Southeastern Michigan.

    The sponors for the night include Made in Detroit, The Kid ROck Foundation, Tock Venutres/Quicken Loans, Ilitch Holdings, Inc., The Fox Theatre, and Olympia Entertainment and the DSO.

    Tickets go on sale March 3rd at 10 a.m. through OlympiaEntertainment.com and Ticketmaster.comAll tickets will be sold exclusively through paperless ticket delivery to ensure fans secure and convenient access to event tickets at the original sale price.  There will not be physical tickets for entry into the event.  Concert-goers will be required to bring the credit card used for purchase along with government-issued photo ID for entry. Ticket purchaser must be present with all guests at time of pick up and entry into the venue.  Ticket usher will swipe the purchaser’s credit card upon entry and present each person in the party with a seat locator slip for quick access into the show.

    Ticketmaster Launches Ticket Deals!

    Concert tickets are getting expensive, as most concert goers have experienced this first hand. Just look at this summer’s hottest festivals as the average ticket to get in for general admission is $150 and that just gets you through the door.  Some of the festivals are charging additional fees for shuttles, camping, and, of course, parking. Bonnaroo and the Hangout Festival now offer payment plans for their tickets. It’s a bit scary when a music festival has to even do that, but look at the price of a VIP ticket for Bonnaroo; it’ll cost a die hard Bonnaroo fan $1,399.50 for their VIP experience. That’s a bit steep for the average working class citizen to put up in these times.  For the rest of us who aren’t or can’t ante up hundreds of dollars to see our favorite bands, Ticketmaster now has it’s own page just for deals on some of the hottest acts and events out on tour. You may remember they offered up special deals on tickets for Christmas this past year and they are keeping the deals going with the newly launched branch of their site: http://www.ticketmaster.com/ticketdeals.

    They are currently offering under $40 tickets for artists such as Rusko, Iced Earth & Symphony X, Steel Panther, Mona, Atmosphere, and Pink Floyd: The Experience. The new site also offers 2 For 1 Tickets (50% off 2 tickets) for events like Ringling Bros., STOMP, Bodies, the Exhibition, and Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam; Me+3 4-Packs (special offers on 4 tickets) for Sesame Street Live, PBR: Professional Bull Riders, and select NBA & NHL teams; and $40 Below (select tickets for $40 and under) for concerts such as Heart, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Antebellum, and Allstar Weekend.

    These Ticket Deals are currently available to US and Canada only.

    Catch Dean Guitar’s NAMM Jam Streaming Live and Enter to Win a Gibson Guitar!

    Bittorrent Logo

    NAMM official kicked off today at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.  It is a private trade show but that hasn’t stopped Dean Guitar and BitTorrent from giving music fans around the world a sneak peek into the show.  Starting on Friday, January 20th at 6:45 p.m. to midnight,  BitTorrent and Dean Guitars have teamed up to stream Dean’s NAMM Jam.  Fans can watch the jam here: http://live.bittorrent.com/DeanGuitars

    If that weren’t enough, they are also streaming from Dean Guitar’s booth (Booth 5466B) on Saturday and Sunday from NAMM.  Fans can get a glimpse of the likes of Testament and Jackyl.  Also BitTorrent is giving away a free Dean guitar during the NAMM Jam and fans can enter here and tune in here to see if they won!

    This partnership is testing BitTorrent’s new live peer-to-peer streaming protocol that was invented by Bram Cohen, BitTorrent’s founder and chief scientist.  This live peer-to-peer streaming aims to eliminate the cost of expensive servers, infrastructure, and reduce delays/buffering in the stream.

    A Call to Action: Stop SOPA and PIPA

    If you haven’t heard by now the Internet is on strike against legislation that, if passed, would give large amounts of power to select groups of people in the entertainment industry and government.  These people will then be able to go after websites for hosting copyrighted content (think YouTube) or sites that even link to another site that have a link to copyrighted material.  Now The Dead Hub isn’t for infringing on copyrights, but the group of people that would be in power could deem a link or website is in violation, and without due process, can have the site shut down and cut off funding.  This was originally aimed to crack down on websites overseas (think The Pirate Bay), but the implications in the US are huge.

    For The Dead Hub this bill is lethal!  It’s also lethal to musicians.  There are many tech companies and blogs out today that have made careers for some big artists. Justin Bieber can thank YouTube to name one instance.  Yet, there are groups that want the likes of YouTube and Tumblr to be shut down for copyright violations.  It doesn’t make sense. I am pretty sure Justin’s label made some money in the process, yet they stand for SOPA.  FYI Justin Bieber has taken a public stance against SOPA and PIPA.

    Then there are artists that are completely oblivious to the bill itself.  Look at the band Ra Ra Riot. Last night they were educated on SOPA and PIPA by their fans in the comments on Facebook.

    ra ra riot clueless SOPA

    Then there are artists that are progressive thinkers and activists. Joe Satriani has taken his own website dark, along with many others to protest.

    Maluca has a comedic take on the situation as she took to Facebook last night, but she had taken the stance against SOPA.

    Is CES Jumping the Shark?

    Lady Gaga Monster Cable Booth CES

    I’ve been an avid CES patron since 2007.  Many will say that’s nothing as they’ve told me they witnessed Bill Gates’ first Keynote. The main reason I go it to see the new innovation that may or may not be hitting the consumer market in the future on the showroom floor. Let’s face it just because you have a booth at CES doesn’t mean your product is going to make it.  It amazes me to see what innovators think will be a hit with the larger consumer market.  Those products that get the most attention usually have a huge marketing ploy, and money, to get potential buyers and decision makers to see the booth. Monster Cable is good at drawing attention to their product booth on the showroom floor. Nearly every year Dr. Dre and David Geffen hit the booth to talk about the new products out for Monster. Back in 2009 Lady Gaga made an appearance at the booth and drew an insane crowd of tech geeks and gawkers.  It showed corporations spare no expense when it comes to wrangling in the celebrity endorsement, but this year I feel like someone is jumping the shark.

    Justin BieberI’ve seen many celebrities and musicians at CES in the past few years and not just at the booths endorsing products. I saw Sinbad hanging around waiting for someone to pick him up a the curb.  We also ran into Motion City Soundtrack while they were scoping out Gibson’s new guitars. This year the celebrity appearances were announced and none other than Justin Bieber will be at the Tosy Robotics booth.  My heart sank hearing this…did CES just get uncool? Justin Bieber is more of a punch line than an ideal celebrity endorsement at the Consumer Electronic Show. The majority of the CES show patrons are male and NOT in Justin Bieber’s demographic.  When I ran into Motion City Soundtrack Justin Pierre, their frontman, mentioned to me how it was odd being at CES because it’s not their demographic either. They also were shocked that we (Yvette and I) could recognize them.  The band was there to play on the Sony Stage at the Sony Booth along with a couple other artists. Mind you, Motion City is on a Sony Records sister label, so it made sense for them to make an appearance. Having Justin Bieber endorse a product at CES feels like a desperate cry for attention.  Is this the tipping point for CES where celebrity endorsement are more important than the innovative tech itself?

    Mashable has a list of 10 Stars Making Appearances at CES this year and Justin is the worst and Jillian Michaels ranks up there at number 2 for me. You can see the full list here: http://mashable.com/2012/01/07/celebrity-tech-ces/

    Bryan White Heads to Woodstock for Groundhog Day

    Bryan White Woodstock Opera House

    To kick off Bryan White’s last Christmas show on December 30th at the Opera House in Woodstock, the Mayor, Dr. Brian Sager, invited Bryan to come back for the 20th Annual Groundhog Day in the Woodstock Square.  Bryan didn’t give a confirmation that night at the show, but he has close ties with Woodstock.  Today Bryan announced that he will be joining the Groundhog Day celebration on February 2th with his wife Erika White (Actress from One Life to Live / Second Noah) and his two boys.  A fun fact, Bryan is an avid Groundhog Day movie fan as those who were at the show on the 30th found out as he quoted lines from the Bill Murray movie throughout the show.
