Aloud’s ‘Falling Out of Love’ VR Music Video Experience

Aloud at the Unicorn Estate

Aloud made their way from Boston to the West Coast in May to promote their virtual reality music video project. And one of those stops included The Unicorn Estate in San Leandro. Check out my photos from the festivities and learn more about Aloud’s ‘Falling Out of Love’ VR Eperience campaign on Indiegogo.

Here’s what Aloud has to say about the VR music video project

Music means a lot to us. As more and more people discover the power of Virtual Reality (VR), we want everyone — from fellow musicians and enthusiasts to tech pioneers who enjoy a good tune — to see that the things they love are well-represented in this brand new medium.

This is a message to the dreamers, the innovators, the lovers of all things indie, and those of you who are always humming a catchy rock and roll tune: join us on our journey! We’re going to learn a lot as we go. Nobody said being a pioneer was easy, but with your help and — and the help of others like you who believe in the future of Virtual Reality and want it to be a haven for music lovers — we’ll make something amazing.

New iTunes Playlist of Music Inspired by Early, Snowy Morning

This morning I had to get up at crazy o’clock to wait for the Peapod driver to show up. It was a late order on Friday so the only available time slot left for today was 7:30am-1pm. Somehow, amazingly, the driver showed up by 8am with my groceries. Brilliant! I don’t usually wake up that early on a Sunday morning. After putting away my groceries I decided to find some music that would make a good soundtrack for a sleepy and snowy morning. This is the iTunes playlist that I came up with. Enjoy!

MP3s from last summer’s Nickel Creek and Glen Phillips outdoor concert in Lowell

Last summer I recorded the Nickel Creek and Glen Philips concert at the Lowell Summer Music Series. It’s a fun outdoor spot to see music. Better late than never — here are a bunch of the MP3s. They turned out pretty good considering I was sitting towards the back.

This is one of the last concerts that Nickel Creek performed. They’re focusing on other projects including Chris Thile’s band Punch Brothers and Sara and Sean Watkins’ Watkin Family Hour.

Glen Phillips will be in Boston on Thursday October 16th with Jonatha Brooke. They’ll be performing at The Wilbur Theater that started hosting music concerts not too long ago. That is definitely not a show to miss!
