I’ve been to my share of fests, but I’ve yet to go to Coachella, or legendary Woodstock. I know, huge mistakes. But Jon Bellion’s new song, Woodstock (Psychedelic Fiction), sure tells a great tale to fill that empty void. Woodstock is a stellar Bellion tune, showcasing his finely crafted, signature indie pop meets electronic and hip hop sound. The ornately sugared tune is a bold reminder why Jon Bellion has such a bevy of devoted fans. With the new track comes an announcement that he’ll be embarking on a 27 city national headline tour set to start May 26th. I happened to catch this guy in San Francisco during his fall tour last year, and boy, did he kill it. It’s no surprise. He is a Grammy winner, since he contributed to Eminem and Rihanna’s The Monster. Watch for a huge break out year for Jon.

On this day in music history: March 31, 1987 - “Sign “O” The Times”, the ninth album by Prince is released. Produced by Prince, it is recorded at Lake Minnetonka Home Studio in Minnetonka, MN, Galpin Boulevard Studio in Chanhassen, MN, Washingtion Avenue Warehouse in Eden Prairie, MN, Ocean Way Studios in Los Angeles, CA, Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood, CA, Monterey Sound Studios in Glendale, CA and Le Zénith with Dierks Studio Mobile Trucks outside Paris, France from Early 1982 - Late 1986. The album is originally conceived an ambitious three LP set titled “Crystal Ball”, with material dating as far back as the sessions for the “1999” album. When Warner Bros rejects the idea, Prince will pare it down to a sixteen track double album. The final selection of tracks will be culled from the aforementioned “Crystal Ball” project, another tentatively titled “Dream Factory” and the third a proposed solo album titled “Camille”, the latter being an alter ego created by the artist singing in a slightly sped up voice. The final result will be one of the most stylistically diverse and acclaimed albums of Prince’s career. It will also be the last to include Prince’s band The Revolution who will be disbanded in late 1986. It will spin off four singles including “U Got The Look” (#2 Pop, #11 R&B), “If I Was Your Girlfriend” (#67 Pop, #12 R&B) and the title track (#1 R&B, #3 Pop). The album will also receive a Grammy Nomination for Album Of The Year in 1988 (losing to U2’s “The Joshua Tree”). “Sign “O” The Times” will peak at number six on the Billboard Top 200, number four on the R&B album chart, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.


All time low
The amity affliction
Avenged sevenfold
Black veil brides
Blink 182
Brand new
Breaking benjamin
Bring me the horizon
Chunk! No, captain chunk
Cute is what we aim for
A day to remember
The devil wears prada
La dispute
Escape the fate
Fall out boy
Falling in reverse
For all those sleeping
Forever the sickest kids
Gerard way
I see stars
The killers
Knuckle puck
A loss for words
Man overboard
Mayday parade
Memphis may fire
Motionless in white
My chemical romance
Neck deep
New found glory
New years day
Of mice & men
Pierce the veil
The pretty reckless
Ray toro
Simple plan
Sleeping with sirens
State champs
The story so far
Suicide silence
Sum 41
The summer set
Tonight alive
The used
You me at six
We are the in crowd
