Watch Together with Sling

By Hannah DiPilato

SLING TV debuted a new co-watching feature today, Sling Watch Party, which enables customers to watch their favorite live programming together. With this feature, viewers can stream live television with up to three other viewers. Watchers can also interact in real-time by the video and chat features. This is an exciting first for the live T.V. industry! 

Recently, as corona has swept the globe, quarantine has led to everyone interacting six feet apart. Loved ones have had to find new ways to come together virtually. One popular activity, during this time, became watching shows and movies together while on video chat. Netflix Party was a popular extension for people to watch Netflix together. This third-party extension had a few flaws, but now SLING is making it easy to watch together, even T.V. that’s live. 

This feature is currently available to all existing SLING TV customers. SLING Watch Party can be accessed on Google Chrome web browsers by a laptop or desktop computer. Through a special beta preview, guests of the SLING subscriber can join a SLING Watch Party by easily creating a free SLING TV account. This free account registration is available through September 30th. 

Those with an account can choose from most live, On Demand and LookBack content to stream with their friends. Channels are available depending on which SLING plan you are subscribed to. Subscription plans include SLING Orange, SLING Blue, SLING Latino and SLING International services. These subscriptions differ and can be chosen based on your television watching desires. Channels available with these subscriptions along with any SLING TV Extra are able to be watched in a party. 

Everyone in the watch party has full control over their own video camera, the volume of the content on their individual device and the volume of video chat that is being received from other participants. The slingers in charge of hosting a Watch Party are able to manage player controls, including play, pause and rewind for all On Demand programming.

To host a SLING Watch Party sign on to sling.com on a Chrome Web Browser and select the program you want to watch. For live episodes, parties can be started up to an hour before the program begins. Select “Start Watch Party” and invite your guests with an email link. Then just start watching with your friends and family, but don’t forget your favorite snacks. 

For more information on the new service, check out SLING’s website. Be sure to follow them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for live updates on more exciting new features.

360 Magazine, The White Buffalo

“The White Buffalo” Live Show

The White Buffalo is playing live from the Belly Up Tavern on June 14th. It is an ‘All-Request Show’ virtual concert in partnership with Cadenza.TV.

Purchase tickets to “The White Buffalo Live from The Belly Up Tavern” and stream/purchase “On The Widow’s Walk.”

The White Buffalo (aka Jake Smith) has announced a second virtual concert in partnership with Cadenza. On April 5th, The White Buffalo and Cadenza partnered in one of the first paid, premium quality live stream experiences to happen in the wake of Covid-19. Due to the success of that first stream, a second performance has been scheduled for June 14.

“Christopher, Matt, and I were really humbled by the success of the first live stream in April. It was pretty amazing to see our whole global fan community come together in that way, especially during such a tough time for the world. We wanted to up the stakes for number two, so it only made sense to do it at one of our all-time favorite venues, the legendary Belly Up Tavern!” – Jake Smith (The White Buffalo)

The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA is a long-time staple of The White Buffalo’s, and a natural fit for the stream. This stream will be an all-request show where the fans will be 100% involved in selecting the setlist.

Fans can purchase tickets to the event here.

“The White Buffalo is one of our most treasured artists. He has a legacy of incredible live shows here at the Belly Up and we’re excited to show the world how well his artistry and our venue work together. It’s inspiring to me that artists like Jake are willing to put in the effort to give their fans a true concert performance at a time like this, with professional sound and lights, on a real stage, and it also helps support live venues like ours at a time when we really need it.” – Chris Goldsmith

The Belly Up Tavern Billed is an “all-request” event, this stream will also expand upon the first by making fan engagement a core focus. After fans purchase a pass, they will be able to request songs within the exclusive “Song Requests” section of the event page. Fans should first check to see if a song they want to request has already been requested, and if so, upvote it instead of typing it in. If a song has not yet been requested, anybody can type it in for other fans to upvote. There will be a 5 song submission limit. The most upvoted songs will create the setlist.

The White Buffalo recently released his seventh studio album On The Widow’s Walk, produced by Shooter Jennings. Upon release, the album charted in six categories, including #1 Bluegrass #2 Americana/Folk #4 New Artist #8 Rock. Newsweek praised the album saying it’s “an adventurous work of Americana” and Associated Press said, “Listening to The White Buffalo’s songs on the road will make you take the long way home so you can enjoy them a little while more.”

“I am able to put myself into the situation of the character, even though that character may not represent my point of view,” Smith reflects. “I try to take it to a human level and keep it as honest as I can. I guess what I’ve tried to do with this new album is to represent a broad range of emotions.” The album runs the gamut exploring dark moments as well as more uplifting ones, and a little bit of what’s in between. “I like to put some confusion into my songs, which is a very human element, I think.”

On The Widow’s Walk is a compelling, gimmick-free statement from an artist, now based in Southern California, whose activity between the musical lines has seen his star very much on the rise, playing to a million followers worldwide, achieving over 200 million streams to date, and securing a Top 10 spot in the TV/Film Syncs Chart for 2019.

Smith has also been using the time away from the road to revitalize his popular acoustic YouTube series, In The Garage, which has seen the release of four new episodes since mid-April after returning from a lengthy hiatus. Combining Smith’s natural humor, charm, musicianship, and taste for craft beer, In The Garage has proven itself to be an instant fan-favorite amongst day one supporters and new listeners alike.

About The Belly Up

The Belly Up was opened in Solana Beach, CA, in 1974 with only a couple of mics and no stage. Over the years it became a frequent stop for legends like John Lee Hooker, Etta James, and BB King. Epic performances by Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, The Neville Brothers, and Toots and Maytals also are a part of the club’s early legacy. Since then, many artists have stopped by on their way up the ladder, including No Doubt, Black Eyed Peas, Mumford and Sons, Childish Gambino, and many more. Major artists have done underplays at the venue in recent years, including The Killers, The Red Hot Chili Peppers (who also played the club for 200 people in 1985), Jimmy Buffet, Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Damian Marley, and Tom Jones. And, perhaps most famously, the Rolling Stones played a private event there in 2015.

070 Shake Live at Digital Fort

WATCH 070 SHAKE PERFORM AT DIGITAL FORT TODAY AT 6:10PM EST!

GO TO THEFADER.COM/FORT

LISTEN TO MODUS VIVENDI HERE

“A vital new singer makes her debut…an emo-rap Dark Side Of The Moon …Modus Vivendi suggests Enya and Pink Floyd as much as Frank Ocean…the sound of a realist and fantasist sparring, it reflects an artist still coming into focus on her own thrilling terms.”

“Ms. Balbuena’s voice is the record’s most extraordinary feature… The lush sonic backdrop, infused with strings and gentle drones, conveys an ethereal chamber-music setting altogether unusual for hip-hop and R&B.”

“On ‘Modus Vivendi’, she manages to craft a sound that’s anthemic, and built for festivals and clubs; but within the grooves, she’s precise… This is project sculpted away from current trends.”

“A sprawling journey across the emotional spectrum… while adequately booming, there’s a certain intimacy to ‘Modus;’ there are no featured verses — no voice other than Balbuena’s rasping lines across nearly an hour of music… the singularity of this project beams through with unsettling clarity.”

“She is constantly playing with contrasts—raw and smooth, light and dark, harsh and tender—and the songs on Modus Vivendi seem to shift with her mood.”

About 070 Shake
The title of 070 Shake’s debut album is Modus Vivendi — a Latin phrase used to reference a way of life in which two opposing parties can coexist peacefully. Art has always been Shake’s way of life, whether writing poetry as an outlet for depression or crafting playful rhymes about her teammates on bus rides to high school basketball games. “It was an escape for me with all of the frustrations and voices that were going on in my head. I’ve always felt that I had to do something with these words.”

All the way back to her childhood, this individualistic charm has always led the New Jersey-raised talent to stand out. Traditional schooling just wasn’t for Shake. Rather, she stuck out from peers with a natural knack for poetry and a profound love for basketball, even being deemed “Shake” for her crossover dribble. As she grew older, Shake became known for her rebellious nature, constantly causing trouble at school with countless pranks and a disinterest toward academics.

It was during these years, however, that Shake began to hone her artistic identity. From writing poems to falling in love with the cadences and storytelling of artists such as Alicia Keys and Kanye West, she quickly found a desire to start making music. Soon after, Shake began recording in a friend’s studio up until 2016, when the intensely vulnerable song “Proud” caught the ear of the legendary G.O.O.D. Music camp.

Shake signed to the label later that year, transitioning from manning kids’ bouncy castles in New Jersey to working with the likes of G.O.O.D. Music labelmates Kanye West and Pusha T, among others. Come 2018, she released the deeply personal EP, Glitter — a six-track culmination of diverse sounds and genres meant to chronicle the realities of love, depression, substance, and pain. Maintaining the same creativity that once fueled her high school poetry, she began to turn heads in the music world, becoming one of the year’s most talked-about names with her features on several other G.O.O.D. Music releases, namely the soul-stricken outro on Kanye West’s “Ghost Town” and her haunting vocals on Pusha T’s “Santeria.”

Today, in the wake of the release of Modus Vivendi, Shake is focused on bringing her reflective style to the spotlight with boundary-pushing creativity and pure emotional honesty as her compass. Detailing her creative process, “I just really go with how I feel in the moment and then that’s where the writing comes from. It’s like an ongoing disperse of words when I feel something.”

In a world obsessed with consumption, Shake is a much-needed breath of fresh air, more than ready to make her impact felt through music. In her own words, “I want it to make a change in the world. The agenda is bigger than just music.”

The Greeting Committee Release Music Video for “17”

“The Greeting Committee exudes youthful abandon on shimmery new single ’17.’

…This band needs to be on your radar.”

May 31, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA) Today, The Greeting Committee release a brand-new music video for their single,”17.” WATCH HERE.

This video came to fruition in a very unique way  Universal Music Group’s talented young college representatives worked with lead singer Addie Sartino on the treatment and creation of the video from start to finish. Their youthful vision and creativity resulted in a visual component which perfectly fits the song’s emotion and narrative.

On the song, the critically acclaimed Kansas City quartet infuse sunny, shimmering guitars with youthful spirit and vivid lyricism. Co-written with Jack Kennedy and produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes), it’s as cinematic as it is catchy. The single provides the perfect precursor to the groups’ forthcoming new album, stay tuned for more details.

The band recently wrapped a North American tour supporting Jukebox the Ghost. Their energetic live show captured the attention of audiences across the country after their Pittsburgh set, AXS wrote that The Greeting Committee quickly won over the crowd with their energy and catchy songs. Twin Cities Media praised, “If every band had the amount of energy that Addie had last night I would never have a complaint about a live show, there’s no denying the power behind The Greeting Committee’s live shows,” while Music In Minnesota agreed, “The Greeting Committee put on one of the best performances from an opening act I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Between high school classes in their native Kansas City, The Greeting Committee quietly stirred up a following with their 2015 debut EP It’s Not All That Bad, which caught the attention of Lazlo Geiger, a radio personality from 96.5 The Buzz. The lead single “Hands Down” impressively generated 10 million-plus streams as the band went on touring with the likes of MisterWives, Tennis, The Mowglis, Saint Motel, and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, as well as making a splash at Lollapalooza and SXSW. “17″ is their first new release since their 2017 sophomore EP Meeting People Is Easy.

The Greeting Committee are: Addie Sartino (vocals), Brandon Yangmi (guitar), Pierce Turcotte (bass), and Austin Fraser (drums).

Summer Block Party Festival 2018

Live Nation Urban announces the fourth annual Summer Block Party Festival– the preeminent destination for soul and R&B devotees since 2015. Tickets go on-sale Friday April 20th at 10am.

 

After successfully expanding to include Houston in 2017, the original Chicago site will now host a second night for the very first time. Celebrating another first, Summer Block Party Festival now arrives in Philadelphia this summer. Once again, the lineup showcases some of the most important, impactful, and inimitable voices in soul, R&B, and hip-hop.

 

GRAMMY Award-winning modern icon Jill Scott returns home to Philly in order to headline the first night June 30 at The Mann Music Center. Miguel Fantasia top a dynamic bill at Cynthia Woods Pavilion in Houston July 7. Keith Sweat headlines the Chicago show at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island July 14 followed by Babyface and Boyz II Men the next evening July 15.

 

The full itinerary and each respective lineup can be found enclosed below.

 

Summer Block Party set the industry standard for R&B and soul-centric festivals. Launched in Chicago during 2015, it has gone on to consistently sell out every year and spotlight not only genre luminaries, but the next generation’s hottest young R&B stars. Previous lineups boasted everyone from Erykah Badu and Jazmine Sullivan to Ledisi and SWV, to name a few.

 

It also continues a blockbuster 2018 for the team at Live Nation Urban. The year’s stacked slate includes not only Summer Block Party shows, but Rap Caviar Live, Broccoli City Festival, Roots Picnic, A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop, and Kirk Franklin’s Exodus Music & Arts Festival. LNU has positioned itself at the forefront of the culture, ushering it forward with each subsequent show.

 

“We feel blessed to be able to continue to build and grow this Summer Block Party platform, it’s important to give R&B artists and fans a place to engage in a live setting. I’m looking forward to the shows this year and adding even more cities to the series next year”, says Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban.

MIRANDA LAMBERT x RECORD-BREAKING MEGASTAR

Miranda Lambert made country music history following the 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15th. The country mega-star now stands as the most decorated artist in ACM history with a collective 32 career wins. Lambert won three awards during Sunday’s show including her ninth consecutive “Female Vocalist of the Year” award and two for “Song of the Year” for her emotionally-raw hit “Tin Man” (songwriter and performer) from her Platinum double-album The Weight of These Wings.

 

“I cannot believe this, I really can’t,” Lambert said. “I love country music. It’s my entire life, and the fact that you all care so much about what I’m doing, I’ll never take it for granted.”

 

Lambert also stunned in the performance of her newest single, “Keeper of the Flame,” which hits radio on April 30th. The single is her latest from the powerhouse double-album, The Weight of These Wings.

 

This summer, Lambert alongside award-winning group Little Big Town, will be hitting the road in their co-headlining, The Bandwagon Tour, which kicks off on July 12th in Charlotte, NC. The tour will travel along the U.S. Atlantic seaboard, Southeast and Midwest regions.
