Listen To This: Make You Feel Alive!

| Filed under: Listen To ThisSemi Precious Weapons

Life is all about growing, changing and having fun along the way!

Semi Precious Weapons is doing just that!

The New York band has slowly evolved away from their glam rock past and adopted a much more mature and pop sound. Yet this is not selling out. It's organic and cool and real.

And really good!!!

Aviation High is unlike anything Semi Precious Weapons has ever done. It's a lot more like Empire Of The Sun. And if you're into that Australian band, then you will likely be into this song!

Check it out above!

Woman's Heart Stops For Five Minutes At Lady GaGa Concert

| Filed under: Semi Precious WeaponsLady GaGa

Scary!

A Tennessee woman is recovering after collapsing and nearly dying at a Lady GaGa concert earlier this week.

Crystal Thornton was enjoying GaGa's opening act, Semi Precious Weapons, when she experienced a seizure and collapsed. She was unconscious and didn't have a heartbeat. The EMT on scene used a portable defibrillator and finally revived her after 5 minutes.

Her best friend Christina Tugman described what happened:

"She stopped breathing, her eyes rolled back in her head, and her body started twitching. I was asking if she was OK, and she wasn't responding."

The woman was airlifted to Vanderbilt Medical Center where doctors say her temperature was below the norm.

One of the doctors said, "if she had been at home, alone, without anybody around she would not have survived."

Terrifying!

According to the hospital, Crystal was more concerned about missing out on GaGa, saying, "I am so mad I missed the concert."

Aw, you poor thing!

We admire your dedication, and we're sure GaGa does too, but just rest up, sweetie, and take care of yourself. There will be many more chances to see her in concert.

We are very excited to announce that one of the best bands on the planet, Semi Precious Weapons, have been added to the first leg of Lady GaGa's destined-to-be epic Monster Ball tour.

Glam rockers from NYC, Semi Precious Weapons are a longtime favorite of ours and GaGaloo loves them as well. Check her out name-checking the band and singing a bit of one of their songs (above)!

The band will be opening for our Lady beginning the first night in Montreal and all the dates through Los Angeles.

Tickets to a lot of shows are sold out already. And a lot of venues are general admission, so you'll wanna get there early and be familiar with the music of Semi Precious Weapons.
