PREVIEW: Drake’s MySpace
The Spring 2010 concert season keeps getting better—maybe. According to his MySpace, personal website and Billboard, Drake will be playing at “private location” in Syracuse, NY on April 30. He’s on a college tour, “Away from Home,” so it’s not completely crazy to think he’ll be coming to Syracuse University at that date. Nick Cicero, an SU grad student and producer signed to the same company as Drake’s producer, Neenyo, said Drake is “supposed to be coming,” but it isn’t “uber-official” yet.
Of course, this all could change as we get closer to the date. Don’t give your hopes up, but the hottest indie rapper could be coming soon.
Stay tuned for updates later.

PREVIEW: Skybox’s MySpace
LISTEN: “In a Dream” by Skybox
It kind of scares me that electro-pop is transitioning to more girl-y bands like Owl City, and Skybox’s “In a Dream” isn’t exactly beer can-crunching kind of music, but it feels good just listening to it while working on school work. Skybox could be one of those bands you like at first, listen to three times on your iPod and then completely bemoan the following week. Regardless though, Skybox is best at being fluid and light-hearted. It only takes one episode of Gossip Girl or one Twilight movie to make this song a global teen girl sensation (God, spare us all). If the music sings to you (to all of you Upstate New York lcoals), go and check them out in Ithaca, NY on March 5 at The Haunt.
