Circa Survive’s Brendan Ekstrom Walk Off Stage Mid Set for an Incredible Reason

  • 4:27 pm Monday, July 24th, 2017 by Kyle T- Street Team

If you ever wondered if those in a band pay attention to the crowd or even know what city they’re performing in on a given night, Circa Survive’s Brendan Ekstrom just proved otherwise. Not only did he see something in the crowd at a recent show in St. Louis, but he did something about it. He took to Twitter to explain why he left the stage in the middle of their set, and it’s pretty remarkable.

Quick note to those who were at the show last night. I’ve been doing this for 20 years and I’ve never walked of stage during [More]

Michael Phelps Loses Race to a Shark

  • 4:03 pm Monday, July 24th, 2017 by Kyle T- Street Team

How else would Discovery Channel kick off Shark Week than by having the greatest Olympian of all time race a deadly shark in open water?

  • 3:25 pm Monday, July 24th, 2017 by Sam

Former Blink-182/Angels & Airwaves member Tom DeLonge posted something really strange on Facebook this past Friday. He’s teasing SOMETHING but it’s totally unclear what it is. DeLonge says it “doesn’t matter if you are a fan of my music or not” so we don’t think it’s a new band or single. He then gets extra creepy saying “it’s not about me. It’s about…us”. Like, okay crazy pants.

Construction on a new $1.25 million skate park near Tropicana Field is currently underway. The 30,000 square foot facility is being built in the existing Campbell Park and is funded entirely by the City of St. Pete.

When finished it will be the largest skate park in the state, so they [More]
