Featured Artist – Mike Posner

Making two of the year’s most talked-about, genre-defying mix tapes is never easy – especially not if you’re doing it in your dorm room in the middle of the night, with homework piling up, friends banging on your door and the campus police barging in. Learn more about Mike on his profile page on the Warped site and check out a recent live video of Mike performing to get a taste of what to expect this summer.

All Time Low Set to release Live CD/DVD “Straight to DVD”

Arriving May 25th in stores and online everywhere, this live performance and on-the-road documentary was filmed and recorded during All Time Low’s Fall 2009 headlining tour and is full of all new footage… plus some old stuff from the early years that we know you have never seen before. The documentary is full of exactly what you would expect from over two months of hanging out with All Time Low, so if you don’t like bad words, less than professional golf outings, and “sexy” band shower scenes you may want to turn back now. Click HERE to watch the trailer! One package couldn’t contain all this content… check out the exclusive pre-orders HERE including the limited edition deluxe version!

Motion City Soundtrack Added To NY/NJ Shows

Motion City Soundtrack have been added to the 7/17 show in Uniondale at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and 7/18 in Oceanport, NJ at the Monmouth Park Racetrack. To get a taste of what to expect this summer from MCS, check out this video.
