NYC’s THE HEYDAZE just announced a headlining show at the Gramercy Theatre in December!  Their first headlining show ever over the summer was an advance sell out, so make sure you get tickets early for this one!  Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 31st at 10AM.

THE HEYDAZE
Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY
December 19th at 7pm

While THE HEYDAZE are a relatively new band, their catchy melodies and lyrical puns have led to prime opening spots on Jesse McCartney’s In Technicolor Tour over the summer, and they’ll be joining Timeflies’ After Hours Tour this week.   They’re definitely an artist to look out for in 2015, and hey don’t you want to be able to say you were at one of their first headlining shows before they blew up?

Listen to their latest single, “Don Juan,” below and head over to their Facebook page for some free jams.  Stay tuned for the music video, which the band recently filmed in LA.

AJR’s Infinity Tour Stops At The Gramercy Theatre

AJR’s Infinity Tour had a hometown show in NYC on Sunday night at the Gramercy Theatre.   It’s been a while since their last headlining show in the city, and New York welcomed them back with open arms.  The tour is in support of AJR’s new single and EP, “Infinity.”  Their set included all of the tracks from the new EP, and some older favorites like “The World Is A Marble Heart” and “Livin’ On Love.”

With their smooth harmonies and a little brotherly banter, AJR kept the crowd engaged and dancing throughout the show.  The band is a lot of fun to watch live, especially during”Pitchfork Kids,” which featured a crazy drum off by Jack and Ryan.

The guys are especially talented when it comes to creating song mashups — a mix of R. Kelly’s “Ignition,” The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” and their own “I’m Ready” was a standout.


The show ended with a double encore, as Adam, Jack and Ryan went into the crowd with opening act Minor Soul for an acoustic singalong to “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers, a throwback to their days spent busking around the city, where they honed their performance skills.

The show was also streamed on Yahoo! Screen with Live Nation.  If you have a chance to see AJR on tour, go!!!  The Infinity Tour is heading to Boston, Philly and upstate New York next.  Check out all of the dates here and pickup a copy of the Infinity EP on iTunes!

The Vamps Debut Album “Meet The Vamps” is Out Now!

The Vamps highly anticipated debut album “Meet The Vamps” is out now in the UK and Europe!  We have heard snippets of all of the songs and we have to say, this album is going to be huge.

When we saw The Vamps in NYC at Gramercy Theatre, they blew us away with their new songs featured on the album.  Watch “Girls On TV” Live from Gramercy Theatre below!

We are still waiting on a US release date for the album, but we’re hoping it will be sometime this summer to go along with The Vamps tour with Austin Mahone!   The album will be out April 25th in Australia and New Zealand, and May 21st in Japan.

To celebrate “Meet the Vamps” release, the band will be having several meet & greets, performances and signings around Europe.  Check here for details on how you can Meet The Vamps!

Check out the brand new lyric video for “Somebody To You” below.

AJR Kicks off Spring Tour with Headlining Show at Gramercy Theatre

Our favorite band of brothers, AJR, kicked off their spring tour with a headlining show at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre on Saturday, March 15th.  It’s hard to believe this was only the band’s second headlining show, ever.  They played a solid 1-hour set, including a brand new song and some covers that seriously showed off their vocal ranges.

We were first introduced to AJR (brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met) at CMJ back in October, when they played a showcase at the Gramercy along with artists like Diane Birch.  At the time, there were maybe 30 people in the audience.  It’s amazing to see how far they’ve come in just a few short months!

The near-capacity crowd at Gramercy was dancing and singing along to every song, even tracks like “The Green and the Town” and “Married on a Hill,” which haven’t even been officially released by the band.  The show also marked the first performance of a new song, “Alice By The Hudson,” which AJR described as “the perfect summer song.”  We totally agree, and love the Beach Boys-influence you can hear in this song.   They also played favorites off their debut EP, 6foot1, like the ukelele-driven “Growing Old on Bleecker Street” and “After Hours,” which was so much fun to hear live.  They followed it up with a cover of Bastille’s “Pompeii” that (as with all of their covers) makes it impossible to go back to the original version because they just do it better!

They even brought back a song from the AJR archives, “3AM,” which was a nice addition to the set and for fans who had been around since they first started adding videos to YouTube a couple of years ago.

As if we weren’t impressed enough already, for their encore AJR sat down on the edge of the stage and beckoned their fans closer.  Without microphones, they did a cover of “Wagon Wheel,” which we could hear perfectly from the back.  It seemed like a fitting tribute to their days busking in Washington Square Park.  They ended the show with their single “I’m Ready,” which had the whole crowd dancing and clapping along.

Having seen them before, we were expecting an incredible show, but we were seriously impressed with this show and how much they’ve stepped up their game.  They have a few more dates coming up this Spring, and trust us, you do not want to miss this!  At this rate they’ll be selling out arenas this time next year.  We’re so excited to see what’s in store for this talented trio! Even more remarkable, AJR are a completely independent, DIY project – they write, produce and record songs in their parents’ living room in NYC and have full creative control.  As they say, No Label.  Just Fans.

In case you’re new here, here’s what you need to know about AJR:
AJR is a complete DIY project – brothers Adam, Jack & Ryan write and produce all of their own music, and even mix and record songs in their living room.  The NYC-based band got their start busking in parks, and has since opened for acts like Hoodie Allen, Demi Lovato, The Wanted, and most recently The Vamps.  Their mix of the musical styles of the 50s and 60s, with modern influences, gives them a unique sound.  These multi-talented brothers play everything from the ukelele to the melodica on stage, and their energetic live performance is not to be missed.

Make sure you download a copy of the “I’m Ready EP” on iTunes or Amazon before the show!  Stay tuned for more dates.
