What a pop-tacularly perfect evening!!!
To celebrate the release of Pop Up! #2, our new compilation album, we threw a pop-tastic partAAy last night at WeHo's super swanky Bootsy Bellows!
The sultry, seXXXy, and always spectacular Wynter Gordon — whose marvelous track Reach Out is featured on the compilation — absolutely CRUSHED IT on stage!
It was quite literally music to our ears!
Great music! Great friends! Great drinks! What more could a boy want? LOLz!!
Thanks to our friends at Rony's Photobooth for taking so many lovely pictures!
See more pics of the awesomeness…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Yes, we are still obsessed with Wynter Gordon! And rightfully so!
She is making dope ass music - totally in her own lane!
If the '90s were still around we'd call this "alternative" and it could get radio play. Sadly, radio has changed so much since then. But, thanks to the Internets we can share this greatness with y'all!
Check out Tomorrow (above)!
Oh you luscious angel!! You did it again!!
We were triple-thrilled when the Queens chica decided to play at our charity even last weekend and, spoiler alert, she did NOT disappoint!
Ch-ch-check out her ah-mazingly soulful One Night In… Austin performance of Talk Dirty (above)!!
We will talk dirty to you, sweet thang!! LOLz!!
And thanks again for helping us raise $53K for two oh-so-very worthy charities!!
For the sixth straight year, we took our talented friends to Austin and blew everyone's minds with SXSW's most ass-kicking event!
Words haven't been invented to accurately describe the awesomeness of Sunday's One Night In… Austin partAAy, but we will try and paint a picture of the gloriousness anyway!!
There was fabulous music and delicious drinks! Our favorite celebz mingled with our perezilicous fans!
Fall Out Boy surprised the crap out of everyone by playing a fabulous set!
And, best of all, we raised over $53,000 for two of our fantastic charities!!!
In addition to showcasing the most anticipated performances at SXSW, our event successfully raised $53,000 for VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools and GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring safe schools for all and creating a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation!
We're proud to have collected so much cash for such great causes, but we certainly couldn't have done it alone!
We couldn't have thrown such an amazing party and raised so much money without
But we were treated with a pre-Texas party present, as the Queens native recently stopped by and regaled us with sweet, broken down versions of her splendid tunes!
Open up your ears and let Wynter pour her pretty melodies and rich, emotional words into your BRAINZ with this EXCLUSIVE, live rendition of Tomorrow (above)!
OBSESSED with Wynter!
Her tracks are uncluttered, poignant and relatable, and she consistently delivers powerful music that is as comforting as it is inspiriting.
What a talent!
We are LOVING the greatness that is Wynter Gordon!!!
Check out her EXCLUSIVE acoustic performance (above)!!
So AHmazing! We can’t get enough of her cool, eclectic voice and talent!
The song is off Wynter’s Doleo EP, with the chorus sung in Zulu!
Yes! Yes! And YES!
We have been OBSESSED with the reborn artistically Wynter Gordon and her new material these last couple of months! And we are truly delighted that she will be gracing our stage with her presence at our big One Night In Austin event next weekend!
If you don't know why Wynter is so awesome, check Gordon out in action above!
In addition to Wynter Gordon, the talent that will be performing at our 6th annual SXSW extravaganza includes A Surprise Superstar Act, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lissie, Paloma Faith, Stooshe, Charli XCX, Brooke Candy, Angel Haze and many other hot acts we have yet to announce.
The only way to get GUARANTEED entry into our party is to buy tickets! And, even cooler, 100% of ticket sales will be split directly between the two non-profits we work the most closely with, Vh1's Save The Music Foundation and GLSEN, the Gay & Lesbian Straight Education Network. Both cater specifically to helping young people!
Buying tickets is the only way to get guaranteed entry. SXSW festival badges will be honored if capacity allows.
