Barns Courtney is going to be one of the must-see sets on Sunday at NBT. He’s an upcoming artist with a truly incredible story. Courtney just released his debut album in September, ‘The Attractions of Youth’, and explained to me that it really tells the story of him coming up from his lowest of lows (being dropped by a label) to his highest and best moments now. How low is low? We’re talking living like a hobo couch surfing in places like abandoned retirement homes! Yeah, he’s got some pretty insane stories.

Probably one of my FAVORITE interviews ever! Portugal. The Man will be performing at #97XNBT this Sunday December 3rd so bassist Zach Carothers called in to chat about it! Of course we didn’t just talk NBT. We had to discuss the wild success of ‘Feel It Still’ and how it is skyrocketed them to a completely new level in their career.

Hayley Williams prances through the streets of New York surrounded by ‘Fake Happy’ faces in the new video. The bands own Zac Farro directed the video which was just released last week. The upside-down smiley faces which surround her have become somewhat synonymous with the song and their latest album After Laughter.

For a lot of us it was the first place we crowd-surfed, met our favorite band, poured sweat in the pit all day, and it was always perfect. Vans Warped Tour will sadly take on it’s final cross-country run in 2018. Founder Kevin Lyman shared the statement today and punk rock hearts broke everywhere. He did say this would only be the end of the “full, cross-country” run, so perhaps we can hope it will simply take on a smaller form. But we can only wait and see. 😦

‘Passion’ is the first single off the forthcoming AWOLNATION album Here Come The Runts, due out February 2nd. The video, released last week follows a day in the life of Og de Souza, a Brazilian skateboarder who lost the use of his legs as a child due to Polio. Souza cruises through the city and shreds at a beach side skate park all the awhile carrying a heart-warming smile. Lead singer Aaron Bruno tells Billboard, “Og has a such an amazing passion for life, positivity and, of course, skating, It’s an inspiration to me and what he does is a great example of how to overcome obstacles in life through your passion. I know music has saved my life on more than one occasion. It’s an honor for us that he wanted to be a part of this video and share some of his life together.”
