Davis Cup Semifinals Set
After a drama filled weekend, 4 teams advanced to the Davis Cup World Group semifinals:  France, Argentina, Croatia and Great Britian.  It was a shame for the home teams – all of the teams advancing were visitors.  Croatia rallied from 0-2 down to take the tie against the US in 5.  (We’re still not over it.)  The semifinals are set to take place in September, just after the US Open.  With #Merica out, we’ll be rooting for Team France.  ALLEZ!

The American Summer hardcourt season officially starts this week, with the Citi Open in DC.   Lots of American players are in action, including top seed John Isner and #NextGen players Taylor Fritz and Francis Tiafoe.  Tune into Tennis Channel to watch all the action!  Also, heads up that the US Open starts in just 41 days!  Enjoy this A+ fangirl instagram of Grigor from the Citi Open.

5SOS Sell Out Madison Square Garden on “Sounds Live, Feels Live” World Tour

We can officially say “5SOS sold out MSG!!!”  That’s a feat of epic proportions, especially for a band that hasn’t been around that long.  It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago the guys were headlining the nearby Best Buy Theater, which holds about 2,000 people.  Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael played every song we could have asked for on this tour and you could hear the entire arena singing every word!

The band played their new single, “Girls Talk Boys,” for the first time live at MSG.  The track had just dropped the day of the show, but fans already knew all of the words and kept singing like they had been all night.  The performance of the funky song saw lead singer Luke Hemmings jump on the piano for a bit – cue the swoons.

Drummer Ashton took the time to remind the crowd to always follow their dreams, saying he went from playing in his garage to playing in the legendary Madison Square Garden.  He also said the crowd was the loudest he’d ever heard, despite having played many other shows.

Before going into the first verse of “Jet Black Heart” solo, Michael soaked up the applause from the crowd.  Just when you thought he was going to keep going, the crowd just got louder and louder.  It was one of the most energetic crowds we’ve ever seen at MSG (or anywhere for that matter!)  We’re so proud of how far 5SOS have come so far and can’t wait for what’s next!

5SOS Release New Song,”Girls Talk Boys”

Our favorite Australian pop punk boys just released a brand new track from the Ghostbusters movie called “Girls Talk Boys” and it’s funky!! These guys know how to rock and definitely how to roll with the new track.  Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael are so good, this song is totally different from everything on their new album, “Sounds Good, Feels Good” but it will have you dancing and grooving the whole time.

Listen to “Girls Talk Boys” below.
