Nick & Knight Live At The Best Buy Theater in NYC

Nick Carter and Jordan Knight brought their duet project, Nick & Knight, to the Best Buy Theater in New York City on Friday night and it was everything we could have imagined and more for two boy band members teaming up for an album and tour.

During the concert, Jordan kept picking on Nick for being a trooper and powering through the concert even though Nick had almost lost his voice and was having a hard time singing.  That didn’t slow down his dance moves though, which he showcased in their terrific 90s medley mid-concert.  We might be biased but the best part of the concert might have been that cover of Ginuwine’s “Pony” that had the audience screaming with delight – like it was 1996 all over again! Watch their 90s medley below, which on its own is worth the price of admission.

Nick and Jordan slowed things down a little when they broke out an acoustic guitar and keyboard to sing one of the most heartfelt songs on the album – “Halfway There.”  Making sure to give their larger than life fans the right stuff, Nick and Jordan also covered their boy band hits “I Want It That Way” and “Step By Step.”

While we’re sad Jordan didn’t sing “Stingy” (Donnie was busy filming his TV show on Friday night), the sold out audience was treated to “Give It To You” and “Larger Than Life” featuring Nick Carter on the electric guitar.

5SOS Release Official Video For “Good Girls”

After teasing us with clips and stills from their latest video, Australian punk rockers 5 Seconds Of Summer finally released the full video for their new single “Good Girls”.

The video shows Calum, Michael, Luke, and Ashton as a classically trained orchestral band in a flyer but they turn up to the “Reform School For Bad Girls” looking like Angus Young from AC/DC.

If anyone’s confused whether 5SOS are a boy band or not (hint: they’re NOT) this video should prove that these guys are poised to bring guitar driven rock music back to the masses!

Watch the official video for “Good Girls” below.

Pick up a copy of the “Good Girls EP” on iTunes or Amazon now.

Get your tickets to 5 Seconds Of Summer’s massive headlining “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” Summer 2015 tour HERE!

Robert Schwartzman’s California Roll Tour Rolls Into NYC

Robert Schwartzman’s NYC stop on The California Roll Tour was delayed for two days – Robert’s bus broke down in Connecticut and couldn’t roll anywhere.  An early reminder of one of the (few) drawbacks about a venue on wheels – the show literally can’t go on without the bus!  The bus was eventually fixed, and parked in NoHo on a crisp Fall evening.  We’re hoping after this one small setback, the bus will make it back to CA problem free! (So far so good.)

 

Leading up to the concert, there was an extra layer of excitement: for the first time in a while, we had literally no idea what to expect from a tour.  Would the bus be moving?  What will the seats be like?  How many people will be there?  What songs will he play?  Where will the bus be?  (Emails are sent out the day before/day of the show with the location).   And for people who go to a LOT of concerts such as ourselves, it was refreshing to have something new to look forward to for a change. 

 

The bus was by far the most intimate venue we’ve ever been in – two rows of seats that held a dozen or so fans, plus Robert, the bus driver, and the tour manager. The show was friendly and relaxed, much like Robert himself.  He played a mix of songs, which fans had the chance to vote for online, and were welcome to shout out requests throughout the evening.  The set included Rooney classics, and some of Robert’s solo material, including tracks from his last album “Double Capricorn” and the “Palo Alto” soundtrack.  Basically, it was one big singalong.  And it was awesome.  
Robert gave personal anecdotes about each song, and told us that the songs from the first Rooney album always remind him of NYC, as he wrote them when he lived in the city for college.  He told us his favorite songs to play are the ones that the fans want to hear – we’re sure passerby on the street were wondering just what was happening inside bus as it rocked side to side during “I’m Shakin’.”

 

We also got to hear a preview of some of the new music Robert has been working on, for an album due out sometime next Spring.  All we can say is WOW.  We were blown away by the tracks, and it’s so good to hear some more classic pop-rock sounds (we miss hearing guitars and instruments!!)   Get ready for this album.

If you can make it to a stop on the California Roll Tour – GO!  It’s such a unique and memorable experience, and Robert is just plain awesome.  Check out all the upcoming dates HERE.

Screen shot 2014-08-15 at 10.17.57 AM

While his next tour will likely be back in traditional venues, Robert said he’s not getting rid of the bus.  He hopes to keep the tradition alive with some after parties, and more singalongs.  Knowing Robert, we’re sure he’ll come up with something else equally awesome.  And we can’t wait.
