I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. - Michelangelo
Ever wonder about how musicians come up with the tracks that we enjoy? The creative process they go through is something the rest of us have a hard time imagining. Like Michelangelo, do they just dream up a melody and then carve that song out of thin air?
Can you imagine stepping inside of Skrillex’s mind as he dreams? I picture giant mechanical dinosaurs battling it out while cavemen bang on huge drums. Or maybe his dreams are boring and are about eating cereal...only he knows for sure.
Here’s what’s BOOMING the last week of January 2016!
Despite what CNN will tell you, the biggest headline you should know about this week in the world doesn’t involve the refugee crisis in Europe or ISIS.
That’s right. Pluto got downgraded a while back to just “rock” status so we were down to eight planets in our solar system. Pretty depressing, huh?
Well now, astronomers have discovered that there’s this crazy rogue planet the size of Neptune that orbits around our sun once every 15,000 years. So this thing is WAY out there. When it is closest to our sun, it is still seven times further out than Neptune.
So, what do you think we should name it?
Planet BOOM. Duh.
In MUSIC NEWS, let’s talk about the Ultimate Music Experience in Texas!
Festival season is looming, so hang in there, snowbunnies. The month of March has multiple events, including one that you SHOULD NOT miss: the Ultimate Music Experience on South Padre Island, Texas!
On March 16-19 it is poppin’ off in Texas. South Padre Island is a fantastic location to be in, even if there isn’t a festival going on. It’s basically as far south in Texas as you can go, and is a small island that juts out into the Gulf of Mexico. By March, the weather should be nice. What better way to get out of those winter blues?
More importantly, the lineup is INSANE:
- DJ Snake
- Porter Robinson
- Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
- Big Gigantic
- Keys N Krates
There’s a pre-party on March 16th that you should not miss! General Admission tickets with pre-party access are $159, and without are $129.
If you’re a baller, you can splurge on VIP Tickets for just $209. You might as well if you’re traveling all the way to south Texas…
And don’t forget to stock up on some BoomBoom so that your Ultimate Music Experience includes soothing menthol vapors to counteract what is sure to be lots of body odor from thousands of people dancing in that south Texas humidity…
