Happy Monday. It’s time again for our Monday Mashup, our final one before embarking on two weeks of the Hollywood Fringe Festival. We are leaving tomorrow for California, where we will be attending 40+ shows at #HFF17 before presenting our first annual Larry Cornwall Award at the Fringe Awards show on June 25.
In addition to two weeks of the Fringe, we will be having our first winners showcase for the LA Music Critic Awards on June 20. The show will be held on the Second Stage of the Hotel Café, and will feature nine previous and future winners of LAMCA, including Wendy Sweetlove, Elyse Haren, Jon Mullane, Janey Street, Jerad Finck, Lovers and Poets, Katie Costello, The Spider Accomplice and Papermoon Gypsys. We will also be presenting a special award to one of the performers that night. Tickets are available in advance through the venue’s website, as well as at the door. We encourage you to buy your tickets in advance, as we expect the evening to sell out.
Check out this cool tune from Dylyn, “American Nightmare.” It’s got a great beat and should keep your body dancing all night. We think she just might be on to something.
NEW MUSIC VIDEOS
First up this week is the latest from Jared Tyler, who we recently reviewed in Get it or Forget it. This is the title cut to his new album. It’s definitely worth a listen. And since it’s a lyric video, you get to learn the words as you watch.
Next for you this week is the latest from Rococode, another of our recent reviews. We really dig this band, and think you will too. Check out “Is it Real” and let us know your thoughts.
And now for our comedy spotlight, check out the latest video from Blue Élan artist Scout Durwood. The song is called “All the Pretty Bottles.” We think it will get your new week off to a great start.
Last but not least this week is the latest from Brooklyn’s own Jennifer Vazquez, now based in Nashville. Check out this amazing lyric video for her song, “Rocked,” from her latest album, Rediscovering Me.
