Watch Kendrick Lamar’s Entire 50 Minute Concert On A Moving Truck In LA Followed By Fans

Posted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: , , ,


To promote the release of his critically acclaimed new album To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar took to the streets of LA for an incredible late night surprise performance. Kendrick pulled an epic and unprecedented move by performing on the bed of a moving semi truck for his fans in LA as he leads a parade of people running behind. 

The fans were chosen by Reebok and were led to believe they were testing out the new shoes, but then were surprised to see Kdot pull out of nowhere on the truck and proceeded to perform an entire concert, while moving. Now we have the HD quality visuals of this insane 50 minute performance where Kendrick was even joined by Thundercat. Sit back and watch this very unique experience.

Recess Music & Ideas Festival on Michigan State Campus ft. Kaskade & Project 46 Details + Giveaway : Formerly Glowfest [CONTEST]

Posted in Bangin, Contests, Events, News by nick | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

One of the pioneer touring electronic festivals GlowFest who has had acts such as Pretty Lights, Deadmau5, Hardwell, Porter Robinson, Big Gigantic, and countless other top acts have gone under some serious changes and grown as a company. They are now called RECESS and are in their terms a “Music & Ideas Festival”.  The second edition of the new event will be taking place at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan on Friday April 19th, 2013. Featuring musical guests Kaskade and Project 46.

During the day RECESS is a speker series featuring an out-of-the-box progressive speaker panel during the day from 3pm – 4pm “Study Hall” (held in Business School Room N130 on Campus). Then there is “The Playground”, which is an interactive career fair at the venue from 4:30 – 6:00pm (AG Expo Field) prior to doors opening featuring 16-20 disruptive startup companies. (Video explaining Recess more below)

To end the day is the word class electronic concert they are known for at Michigan State University, where they have brought out electronic icon Kaskade and rising Canadian duo Project 46. The festival is going to be the first outdoor music festival that the campus has seen, so should get extra crazy.
It’s amazing to see electronic music spawn such a potentially impactful event, reminding me of 3LAU’s Pencils for Promise campaign.

You can get early bird student tickets and general admission tickets right now for $25 and $30 before they go up.
