Better To Fest With: “Old People At Bonnaroo” Or Your Friends?

Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die

Denny, Isolde, Ann and Neil seem WAY more laid back than at least two friends I’ve taken to festivals…who are no longer friends because I took them to festivals.

Maybe we’ve been choosing our festival +1s all wrong?

ISOLDE, CALL ME. I WANT TO PARTY WITH YOU!!

Summer Smackdown

I live in Atlanta, where it’s a million degrees every day and around here it’s felt like summer for at least 2 full months. Which is why I was a little surprised to learn that the first day of summer was yesterday, June 21st. So it seems like the best possible time to line up our contenders for the Song of The Summer.

First up, The Weeknd has a strong entry with his MJ inspired dance track Can’t Feel My Face

Summer’s always a great time for reggae tracks, and this one from OMI will get stuck in your head for the next 3 months, minimum.

What’s that? You want more dance music? How about this party track from DJ Snake featuring Alunageorge? You Know You Like It.

Now that Kendrick Lamar has remixed one of my current favs, Jidenna’s Classic Man has GOT to be a contender.

Of course there’s always that track that was leaked – and then quickly unleaked – by Miley Cyrus. And Rihanna could drop a banger any second that could blow the rest of these out of the water. So tell me – which of these is going to go down in history as the Song of The Summer 2015? Let me know on Twitter! Follow ParkerOnSlacker.

Probing In Progress: New Music From Eagles Of Death Metal.

Odds are you probably have a couple of favorite bands that could put out any kind of album and you’ll like it. Polka, Mathcore, Christian, you name it, you’ll dig it.

Those two bands for me are Queens Of The Stone Age and Eagles Of Death Metal.

Keith Richards once said, “Rockstars aren’t made, they’re born”, at least I’m pretty sure it was Keith, anyways the point is, these guys are real rockstars. They’re the poster boys for machismo! On earth and (by the looks of the cover art) in space as well.

The new album is called Zipper Down, it doesn’t have a release date as of now but it does give us and aliens some new music to look forward to…

Speaking of probing, let’s probe the single.

Compliments of The Ginger Elvis and Boots Electric!

Heartless Miley Cyrus Crushes Her Biggest Fan’s Dreams

Miley Cyrus might have offended her number one fan!

45 year old Carl McCoid from the UK has maybe taken his Miley obsession to unhealthy lengths. To date, he has 29 tattoos of either her face, her lyrics, or some other miley reference scattered over his entire body. And you think she would be flattered, right? I mean, look at this quality work:

But instead of being appropriately grateful that she had such a loyal supporter, Miley supposedly called the tatts “creepy”, and now Carl wants to have them removed. I assume in one long laser session, sobbing the entire time. Way to be a dream killer, Miley.

Speaking of Miley, she’s definitely got new music on the way! You’ll hear it first on Today’s Hits!

Alessia Cara Visits Slacker Radio

Def Jam recording artist, Alessia Cara, stopped by Slacker Radio to play her first single, “Here.”

Alessia confesses, “It’s a party song, but really it’s the complete opposite of a party song. It’s absolutely me; it shouts out the person in the corner of the party, looking around uncomfortably. I feel like this song narrates what the wallflower is thinking.”

Find out for yourself with her debut music video for “Here.”

More Impressive: Mike D’s House or His Clean Kids?

Wow. This is a child’s bedroom?! I’m staring at it like a work of art.

I thought all kid rooms automatically came with drawings, stickers, food, fingerprints on the wall??

No stains on the bedspread?? No lollipop sticks stuck to the curtains?

Maybe they just airbrushed it all out?? Either that or they just shoved everything in the closet ala Monica on Friends.

Soooo, if the asking price is $5.7 million dollars, I guess all we need to do now is find 50 roommates and the place is OURS!

Oh, the drama.

Something weird is  happening with Katie Armiger and so far nobody can figure out what it is.

Earlier this week, her record label, Cold River Records, released the following statement:

After nine years of competing at the highest level in country music, Katie Armiger has decided to take a breather and decide her next career aspirations.  She has opened for the biggest names in the country music business and headlined two national tours.   It has been the thrill of a lifetime to work with her and watch her blossom into one of the best singer-songwriters of her generation.  Katie is a special talent and an even better person.  Watching her grow and reach for her goals has been so much fun. The night she debuted on the Grand Ole Opry was something that I will never forget!  As a label, we love her and support her decision and we will always be her biggest fans.  We care deeply for Katie as a person and artist. 

So that’s disappointing, right? Katie is a real talent and has invested a lot of time (and money) to get where she is now, and a lot of us were really surprised by this announcement. But then, things went wonky. Katie posted this on Instagram (this was apparently the second time she posted it):

Curiouser and curiouser. From what I can tell, this was posted and deleted multiple times, and it’s not there as of the time of this post. It remains to be seen what will come out of this. As someone said to me, somewhere between their side and her side is the truth. I’ll keep my eyes open and let you know what, if anything, happens from here.
