The Friday Five: Songs On Repeat This Week

1. Jackson Guthy – Pretty Lady
We were introduced to Jackson Guthy on the BTR Summer Break Tour last summer and after sitting through his set two times, we were totally into every single song by the third go around! His songs are infectious and catchy. Get to the 5SOS tour early because Jackson is definitely an opening act you’ll want to know. Grab a copy of Jackson’s new song “Young & Single” on iTunes now!

2. The Vamps – Girls On TV
At their first headlining show here in NYC, The Vamps played a few new songs from their debut album “Meet The Vamps” (out now in Ireland, the UK and most of Europe on Monday!). One of those was Girls On TV. It’s got a reggae feel, but still displays The Vamps acoustic driven sound. Pick up a copy of “Meet The Vamps” on iTunes UK now! Check out all of their signings around the UK this week HERE!

3. Cody Simpson – Surfboard
One of our favorite stars on this seasons Dancing With The Stars, Cody Simpson, released his new single “SURFBOARD” to great reviews. It’s been on constant repeat in the fangirl office since it dropped. Pick up a copy of “SURFBOARD” on iTunes and don’t forget to watch and vote for Cody on DWTS every Monday.

4. Austin Mahone – MMMYeah
We can’t say enough awesome things about Austin Mahone but we’ll keep trying. The one man boyband recently celebrated his 18th birthday by announcing his debut album “The Secret” as well as announcing a headlining tour featuring The Vamps and Fifth Harmony. Tickets are on sale now and with every ticket order, you receive a digital copy of Austin’s album!

5. 5SOS – She Looks So Perfect
5 Seconds Of Summer kick off their North American headlining tour today and what better way to celebrate their EP debuting in the top spot on the Billboard Digital Albums Chart! Like Billboard, we totally dig their power pop punk sound and we can’t wait to see them in NYC. Pick up a copy of the US Edition of the “She Looks So Perfect EP” on iTunes and sing along all summer long!

The Vamps and AJR Rock The Gramercy Theater in Sold Out Show

We were lucky to see The Vamps first NY show last night!  It was amazing to see how much support The Vamps have in the US, especially since they only released their first single in the States a couple of days ago!   Hard to believe that this was actually their first headlining show — ever!  The Vamps are fresh from a string of nights opening for Taylor Swift at the O2 Arena in London, where I’m sure they learned a thing or two (like, make sure you know how long the stage is)

They gave a high energy performance and their fun stage presence had them interacting with fans and fellow band mates, even taking a moment to take selfies with a fan’s phone that had been thrown onstage.  (Fangirl note:  This is not a good idea, please don’t throw objects of any kind at band members.  They thank you in advance.)

The Vamps opened with their single, “Wild Heart,” and played crowd favorites like “Can We Dance” and their new single “Last Night.”  They also debuted some new material, and rocked covers of “Mr. Brightside” and “Cecilia”! Check out our video for “Girls On TV” below.

Opening act AJR totally won over the sold out crowd, and had the whole venue moving to their single “I’m Ready” by the end of their set.  It’s incredible to see how the support for AJR keeps growing and growing!  The crowd was chanting “AJR! AJR!” as the boys took the stage, and you could feel the excitement and energy in the air.  We’re sure AJR made quite a few new fans last night!  Their performance was amazing as usual, and we can’t say enough good things about these talented brothers.
