Watch This Now: Rihanna Performs Medley at the American Music Awards

That is a misleading post title, because while I'm demanding you watch this clip of Rihanna performing live to open the AMA's earlier this evening, I'd also suggest that you do not view the video if you are a fan of excessive hip thrusts and crotch twirls. Simply, it may lead to spontaneous combustions if that's yer sort of "thing". Oh also, her voice sounds great during this medley of Love the Way You Lie, What's My Name and Only Girl (in the World), which can all be found on her current album, Loud. Katy, Christina, Miley who? Ri Ri is reppin' for us tan grrrrlls and she's killing everyone else in her path.

The Dandy Warhols, Live on East Village Radio, Today at 2pm ET

Portland rockers, The Dandy Warhols, came together in the early 90's, prior to the invasion of the Northeast states' grunge movement. Strongly influenced by classic bands like The Velvet Underground, Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones, the band found a wall of sound all their own that remains timeless to this day. Nine studio albums, countless world tours, and one infamous feud with The Brian Jonestown Massacre later, The Dandy Warhols are back on the road in support of their latest disc, The Capitol Years 1995 - 2007, which is a greatest hits compilation of their best material.




Today at 2pm ET, I have the distinct pleasure of welcoming the band into the East Village Radio studio for The Dandy Warhols Live special two-hour program. I'll be joined by members of TDW, and will be playing selections from their nine studio albums, conduct an in-depth interview and then they'll perform live, exclusively in our storefront studio.


I'll also be giving away two (2) pairs of tickets to their show at Webster Hall tomorrow night, November 6. Don't miss out.


Listen live here starting at 2pm ET!

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals Celebrate Halloween With Costumes and a Cover

Getting in the spirit of the holiday season, Vermont-bred badass singer, songwriter and strummer, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, took to the Exit/In stage in Nashville on Halloween. Complete in country regalia (from l-r in the below image they are Billy Ray Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings), the band played to a sold out crowd and Potter even led the troupe in a solid cover of Parton's Jolene.


Grace costumes


Keeping in fine tradition as they do at most every live show, GPN wowed the crowd with their rendition of the classic country cut, which you can watch below.


Additionally, check out this clip of Grace and Co. live from the Artists Den earlier this summer in NYC's Bryant Park, as they perform the rousing and instant classic, Paris (Ooh La La).


One of my favorite covers of theirs after the video. Sweeeeet emooooootion!
