NorthPark to Host Early American Idol Premiere and Live Q&A on 1.9.13

Posted by    |    January 8th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

I’ve become a bit of a fickle fan when it comes to American Idol. I usually watch the first few episodes so angelic voices can tug at my heartstrings while overconfident screechers can make me feel better about my karaoke rendition of “Firework.” Then I drop off while they weed out the mediocre people, returning just to get a feel for the final two, form an opinion, and express it via Twitter. But thanks to the new additions to the judging panel, my viewing habits are about to change. Like when Britney Spears joined the X Factor. Hopes of a catfight between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey (more of a cougarfight in her case) are worth watching for.

Young the Giant’s “Cough Syrup” to be Featured on ‘Glee’ Tomorrow Night

Posted by    |    February 20th, 2012 at 6:00 am

FOX Network’s smash television show Glee is notable for putting their spin on anthemic pop-rock songs such as Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and virtually every Britney Spears and Michael Jackson song ever recorded.

Tomorrow night, Tuesday February 21, break-out act Young the Giant will join these ranks when Glee turns their alt-radio hit “Cough Syrup” into a high school chorale event as the New Directions compete with the Dalton Academy Warblers at Regionals. Check out the above video for YTG’s “Cough Syrup” In the Open session.

Young the Giant is headlining a sold-out show with opening act Grouplove at the Prophet Bar on Friday, March 23.
