PREVIEW: OK Go’s MySpace

Local Ithaca, NY concert promoter, Dan Smalls, announced on Twitter that OK Go will perform in the city on April 25th, open to all ages.  The venue was later announced as The Haunt. Dan Smalls is well-known for bringing in quality talents to the small Central New York culture hub. Last time I saw a Dan Smalls concert, St. Vincent played at Castaways. I say it again: this semester’s concert season keeps getting better. OK Go is absolutely electric live, and I will undoubtedly see this show.

Editor’s Pick #272: Skybox’s “In a Dream” by tjwell01

Skybox's bubblegum electro flavor tastes just right

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.
