The Dig: May Tour Dates With The Joy Formidable

On the heels of tours with both Editors and The Antlers, and Portugal. The Man and Port O'Brien, New York City's fast rising up-and-comers The Dig have announced new May dates in support of The Joy Formidable. The band will first perform at the inaugural Truck America festival at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY, on April 30th before embarking on their week-long trip with the UK band. The tour will begin May 1st at a sold-out show at the Mercury Lounge in The Dig's hometown and will end May 8th in Albany, NY, at Jillian's.


Having recently inked a distribution deal with Megaforce, The Dig's debut album Electric Toys - recorded this past summer with producer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Antony & the Johnsons, The Ramones, Bishop Allen) - will now be released June 8th. This evening, meanwhile, viewers can tune in to NBC's new drama Trauma to hear a preview of the album's slow-build-to-burn opener "Carry Me Home," which will be featured on tonight's episode (9pm EST/8pm CST). This is the second primetime song placement for the young band: album track "Look Inside" was featured on The CW's The Vampire Diaries in January. Multiple tracks can currently be heard on the band's MySpace page, while "You're Already Gone" can be downloaded here.

UMBowl: Another Innovative Music Experience by Umphrey's McGee

The forward-thinking band Umphrey’s McGee will carve out new terrain in musical interactivity with their fans at the first “UMBowl,” an unprecedented 4-quarter evening-long concert on Saturday, April 24th, at Lincoln Hall in the group’s hometown of Chicago.

Umphrey’s, which has long forged a close bond with its national fan base through technological innovation, will explore fresh frontiers in the five-hour event, styled to emulate a football game with four “quarters” of unique musical performances that will actually be generated by audience input. Half the night’s music will be determined by text messaging on “gameday” itself.

The first quarter (Q1) will be an acoustic set entirely chosen by attendees; ticket holders will receive ballots and cast votes on the songs to be performed. Q2 will be a wholly improvised performance driven by bi-directional texting, sifted and delivered by “offensive coordinator” (and longtime Umphrey’s sound caresser) Kevin Browning to the band, which will then use the audience input to construct their jams. Q3 will be an all-request segment, with songs again determined by pre-balloting from the audience members. Fans will be able to vote not just on song selection but actually how those songs are arranged and varied from their original form. In Q4, the live audience will actually act as the group’s quarterback, “calling audibles” to direct the course of a free-flowing set via text messages sent to Browning in response to choices projected on an in-house screen.

The text-messaging element of UMBowl, powered by Mozes, was first employed by Umphrey’s McGee at their Stew Art (or “S2”) series, launched in fall 2009. Hosted as freestanding events before Umphrey’s shows in select tour markets, the series is a crowd-sourced improvisation experiment, in which all the music performed by the group on stage is entirely directed by S2 audience members. Sold-out crowds of 50 fans submit their ideas by texting descriptive words, phrases, and pop culture references to the Umphrey's mobile interface, which are then interpreted by the band.


Umphrey’s McGee had previously taken new approaches to delivering their music to the fans. Before their most recent studio recording, Mantis, was released in January 2009, the collection was made available for pre-order in an interesting way. The more Mantis pre-orders were received, the more free bonus content was received. Fans “unlocked” levels of content by getting more of their friends to pre-order the album.

The band was also among the first group of performers to offer songs at Rock Band Network. The much buzzed-about video game platform works with Xbox video game systems, and allows bands to offer fans a way to dig into their favorite group’s music in ways they have never been able to before.

UMBowl tickets went on sale last Friday and sold out in just minutes.

For the many out-of-town fans attending UMBowl, the band, together with long-standing travel partners CID Entertainment, offered travel packages for the event. Included in each package are tickets to UMBowl, luxury accommodations at the new Hotel Palomar in downtown Chicago, a drink package for the pre-party at the Umphrey’s hometown hang The Store, a personalized UMBowl jersey, gameday transportation, and more.

2 Nights of EOTO at the Fox Theater

From dance halls to intimate theaters worldwide comes EOTO - the nation’s top innovator in glitchy electronic, bass thumping, dub-step themed music. With performances booked well into 2010 including a special two-night run at the Fox Theater, EOTO is taking the country by storm with their innovative brand of live electronic music.

What EOTO achieves on stage is nothing short of astounding. Performed with all of the bells and whistles of a traditional electronic artist plus the addition of live drums, vocals, bass and guitar, the duo creates each and every bass ridden noise right before your eyes -without the addition of a single pre-recorded track. Known for their 100% live improvised performance, EOTO is breaking ground into a new sub culture of music while standing with some of the nations best live DJ’s in the country.

With leagues of sold-out theater performances in 2009, the project started out as an avenue for the duo to blow off steam and generally just have a good time playing around with technology with music. Now, a full time project for the pair with a seemingly endless tour featuring over 600 shows in 4 years and sold out performances in every market in the country. With no signs of stopping, EOTO fine-tunes their approach and skill with each and every show they play, leaving the next performance more unique then the last.

The project will be careening the countryside in 2010 with back-to-back performances scheduled well into late spring and festival dates booked swiftly behind it. The project will be playing along the mountain west and up the west coast before heading back to middle America, through the South, and over to the East Coast in support of their third release, Fire The Lazers, which is now available on iTunes or at a show near you.

Tiësto Launches Innovative Fansite “InTheBooth”

How does the biggest DJ/producer in the world capture Web 2.0 and re-invent artist-to-fan interaction?

Tiësto delivers an innovative, one of a kind experience to his dedicated global fan base with the launch of his new members-only fansite, InTheBooth.

InTheBooth gives fans the ability to interact directly with the world famous DJ, while providing HD streaming concerts, behind-the-scenes footage, exclusive content and more.  Fans from all over the world will now gain access to a side of Tiësto never before seen by the public.

The tech savvy, arena-selling DJ, who boasts a network of over 1.5 million users on Facebook, stated, “I love the idea of being able to make music and get it to my fans in the most direct way possible.  When I came up with the idea for the site, I tested most of the platforms out there and then realized, I needed to make a custom site to handle the specific functionality I couldn’t find elsewhere.”  Outfitted with the latest technology, InTheBooth will now be Tiësto’s outlet for broadcasting exclusive performances, live shows, and debuting new “white label” tracks for fans prior to their release.  The current featured attraction for new members is Tiësto’s epic live performance concert video, taken this summer from his 25,000 person sold out show at Victoria Park in London.  Further performance videos scheduled to air include Tiësto’s Kaleidoscope sold out world tour kickoff at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and the final show of his North American run, live from the Shrine in Los Angeles, California.

The list of InTheBooth’s features continues with members having access to Tiësto’s enormous complete back-catalogue and his complete collection of Club Life podcasts, the #1 artist podcast in the world.   Additional features include tour blogs from both Tiësto and his crew, access to pre-sale tickets, limited-edition merchandise, an interview series from his hometown of Breda, and best of all, the chance to meet Tiësto backstage. When asked about the impact InTheBooth has had , “while I love using Facebook for mass communication and my Twitter to shoot a quick update, I can now chat directly with the people who support me most.  The best part is, every city I perform in, I get to hang with new InTheBooth members each night and I finally have the opportunity to get to know my supporters on a personal level.”

Earlier this year, Tiësto established his own label and publishing company, Musical Freedom, where for the first time in his career, he has full control and ownership of his music and can take full advantage of InTheBooth as a major platform for releasing new music.  In 2010 his Kaleidoscope world tour heads to South America, Australia and Europe, where he will continue to film and broadcast new content and debut new material.  More information on InTheBooth and tour dates can be found at www.inthebooth.com.

The world’s biggest electronic artist and critically-acclaimed DJ/ producer, Tiësto has joined forces with some very special guests on his fifth and most ambitious album to date Kaleidoscope (Ultra Records). A stunning collection of songs written and recorded in collaboration with a variety of music’s brightest talents from the worlds of dance, pop and rock that include Nelly Furtado, Jónsi from Sigur Rós, Tegan & Sara, Kélé Okereke from Bloc Party, Emily Haines from Metric and Calvin Harris just to name a few.

Along with this release of the album, Tiësto has been stunning audiences on a worldwide tour, taking the sounds and sights of Kaleidoscope on the road for 175 live performances across 5 continents. Enlisting the talents of Montreal’s Moment Factory (NIN, Cirque Du Soleil), Tiësto has created the biggest and best live show to date leaving fans and critics breathless, evident from a number of sold-out shows at arenas and large venues throughout North America.
