The Riot Act, The Look, and Tim George

Wow...just realized it's been weeks since my last post. It's not like me to leave so much good news hanging out there. So we did this little show on January 18th and it was amazing. It was the very first of the Riot Act Concert Series and it sold out in a little over an hour. Unfortunately dozens were turned away but we hope to see them again at the next show.

The night began with actress & comedian Manon Mathews who also served as host for the night. Not only was she hilarious, she was also a trooper since she flew in from Los Angeles and had to adjust to zero degree East Coast temperatures. The rest of the night was filled with great music, great beer, and a KILLER set by Playground Etiquette. The night marked the release of their new CD "La Marionnette" and the crowd stayed until the VERY LAST NOTE. We had high hopes for the Riot Act series but the success of this event was overwhelming. Can't wait to do it again!

In other news is that we're working with two new artists that you'll learn a LOT about in the coming months - Tim George and The Look. We'll be doing singles with both of them and can't wait for you to hear the songs! Until next time. Cheers!

I know what you're thinking "...it's nearly 11:30pm on a Saturday and this guy is writing blog entires. What kind of sad lonely life is he leading anyway?" Ok…maybe it's only me that's thinking that but whatevs. Glad I'm here to report the PopRiot skinny.

Many of you know that we released "Frequency" by JOR-G and Erica Ashley yesterday and it was an absolute smash. People were emailing, texting, IM'ing, and all other "ings" you can imagine. The best part was that we picked up some amazing press around the song. Victor from Wordkrapht Magazine heard it and decided to feature the track in their Daily Krapht segment and gave it a glowing review! He's been a supporter of PopRiot and our artists before but this was a huge surprise and we appreciate everything he's said about our PopRiot family.

How can it get better than that you ask? Well we found out today that Erica Ashley's song "Where Are We Now?" will be featured with music from Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Pink on the new Jammy Jams CD "Pop Goes the Lullaby 2". Release info is coming soon and If you don't know the song you should check out the video!

I will end this with a quick hitter about the Playground Etiquette cd release show. This event was always going to be awesome but now that we've added Manon Mathews as the host of the event it's going to be phenomenal. She…is…hilarious...and one of the best comedians out there today. SNL should pick her up ASAP! If you're local to Baltimore you do NOT want to miss this show!
