5SOS know what it’s like to be a fangirl parent, so they will have a waiting area with food and beverages set up by 7AM!   There will also be a truck selling the album and special merchandise.  And you never know – the guys might just pop by to say hello!   Check out 5SOS’s website for all the details on the onsale.

THE HEYDAZE Announce Summer Tour Dates!

NYC based trio THE HEYDAZE, part of the iHeartRadio & Macy’s Rising Star lineup for 2014,  haven’t been around for that long but we have no doubts that you’ll be hearing a lot from these guys in the future.  THE HEYDAZE just had their first headlining show at New York’s Webster Hall last week – and it was a sold out show!

We love their catchy pop sound and energy. (Seriously, listen to “Little Bandit” once and you’ll be singing it for the next several days.  We guarantee it.)   Watch the video for their new single “Young Blood” below!

Like what you hear?  You can visit THE HEYDAZE’s Facebook page to download their songs (for free!)  Or catch THE HEYDAZE on the Northeast leg of Jesse McCartney’s “In Technicolor” Tour this summer.   We saw them open for AJR earlier this year, and they are just as fun live as their music.

Check out the dates below!   They hope to see you and all of your beautiful souls there.

Brandyn Burnette Releases Video for “Thanks For Nothing”

Even if you haven’t heard of Brandyn Burnette yet, chances are you’ve heard one of his songs.   He’s written for artists like MKTO, Jake Miller, and Hot Chelle Rae, just to name a few, including their recent hits like “Heartbreak Holiday,” “First Flight Home” and “Don’t Say Goodnight.”   See what we mean?   Brandyn clearly knows more than a thing or two about writing a catchy pop song, and calls to mind other hit-makers turned solo artists (think Sia, Bruno Mars…)  He is definitely one to watch in 2014!

Brandyn is launching his career as a solo artist, with his first single, “Thanks For Nothing.”   When the song starts, you think it’s going to be a ballad…but then the chorus kicks in and it really packs a punch!   The unexpected, upbeat twist makes for one of the best breakup anthems we’ve ever heard.

Check out the video below and pickup a copy of the single on iTunes now!   Brandyn’s EP, “The Couch Surfing Chronicles” will be released later this fall by Warner Brothers Records.

New York Mets Summer ’14 Concert Series: Boyz II Men and Austin Mahone!

We try to go to a couple of baseball games each summer.  And what better time to go than when the team is hosting a post-game concert?   The New York Mets have a tradition of summer concerts, which in previous years have included Third Eye Blind and 50 Cent.  But we are extra excited about this year’s lineup, as it includes some of our faves:  90s boy band Boyz II Men, and the one man boy band Austin Mahone!

Any ticket to the game will get you admission to the post-game show, and in the past artists have played near-full sets (around 10 songs).    Visit the Met’s website for more info.

The Friday Five: Timeless Summer Jams

Every year, it seems one song and one alone must be anointed the “Song of the Summer.”  While this year’s SOS is still under debate (we’ve already shared our picks!), we prefer those songs you can play year after year that will instantly transport you to summer.

1.  LFO – “Summer Girls”
This was a huge hit for the Lyte Funky Ones in the summer of ’99.  The lyrics made no sense, but that’s part of the beauty of this song and it’s educational pop cultural references. (Macauley Culkin was in “Home Alone.”)  We wonder how many guys have tried the line “you look like a girl from Abercrombie & Fitch.”

2. New Kids On the Block – “Summertime”
Jones Beach 1998.  Come on! New Kids on the Block have a bunch of hits, like their first official single after their reunion 2008!  This was one of the most exciting things to have ever happened in fan girl history.

3. Aaron Carter featuring Baha Men – “Summertime”
Nothing screams summer like AC and the Baha Men hangin’ with the honeys and enjoying the sun. 

4. Selena Gomez – “Summer’s Not Hot”
The temperature says 99 and it can get much hotter so come on over Romeo and Vamos a la playa!

5. Jessie James – “Boys In The Summer”
Because we totally agree, boys DO look so much hotter in the summer.  The video for this is everything summer should be – swimming in a lake with your friends and driving around in an open top jeep singing at the top of your lungs.

We are all fangirls at heart.
