Blacktops and Truck Stops; The Uprising Creative Take It On The Road

Los Angeles-based creative design and marketing company The Uprising Creative has announced Blacktops and Truck Stops, a cross-country tour that has the firm – whose client roster includes Activision, Beck, Beastie Boys, Coachella, Dangerbird Records, Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Ryan Adams and many more – hitting the road with an RV outfitted as a mobile design studio for two weeks in October… Their mission is to get inspired by Americana and share their passion for art and design with everyone they meet along the way; from music events, art galleries, designers and clients, to gas stations, RV parks and roadside coffee shops. In addition to meeting with other designers along the way and visiting many of America’s majestic and eccentric places, The Uprising will also be making stops at art schools, at-risk youth centers and local charities. They will be covering ground in the South and Southwest, making stops in Austin, Birmingham, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans, Phoenix, Reno, Sacramento, San Francisco, Tucson  and many other small towns and cities along the way… One of the first major stops on the trip will be in Austin for the Austin City Limits Music Festival and the official aftershow with Sonic Youth at La Zona Rosa on October 9th, presented by Nixon Watches. The whole trip takes place from October 5th – 19th, and will also be filmed for a documentary in the works for 2011.  You can get more info HERE.

Year Long Disaster Reveals Black Magic & Special Guests for January Residency

Year Long Disaster @ Spaceland Monday Nights in January

L.A. trio Year Long Disaster, led by frontman Daniel Davies (yes, that Davies), have taken over Monday nights at Spaceland all month long. We hope the bar is stocked up on earplugs and Jager because this residency is sure to bring more southern drenched psych-rock and roll than the club has seen since the band last played there.  YLD will be playing songs from their new album Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed, which was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Marilyn Manson) and will be released March 9th via Volcom Entertainment. We hear there are also a string of surprise guests who will be dropping by for special performances, and one only need look to the band’s touring history and influences to guess who that might include.  Head over to www.yearlongdisaster.com to grab a FREE download of ”Show Me Your Teeth,” the first single from their new album.
