Thousands of singers upload videos to YouTube daily but only a few of them find a large and loyal fanbase then quickly gain the rise to fame that lands them a warm-up spot on the Selena Gomez tour. In fact, I can only think of one ,the very talented Christina Grimmie, a YouTube sensation that has captured the essence of "down to earth" teenage phenom. I caught up with Christina before her show with Selena at GTE Theatre in Clarkston, MI. While she has never toured before she performed in front of a sold out audience with no fear, performing songs from her ep "Find Me" and the covers that have made her a star.

The members of Destroy This Place employ a new type of math where the result of the equation is Loud Fast Rules. They figured out if you take 4 local music veterans that have played in some of Detroit's finest bands, like Friendly Foes, New Granada and the Cold Wave, apply a hard work ethic and add an aggressive power pop sensibility you get: Loud Fast Rules. The other part about the equation that I haven't mentioned is how Destroy This Place applied an accelerator to their equation where their talent and common mission to making music has brought them to the forefront of great local bands in less than a year. This video features guitarist, singer Ryan Allen and bassist Monday Busque talking about the formation of the band and what makes them click. The other part of the video features live clips of Destroy This Place playing a furious set at the Pike Room. If you like what you hear on the video be sure to download their album from bandcamp, it's free and it rocks!

There was a slight delay in getting this episode out due to my crazy schedule, but I think I more than make up for the delay with this jam packed episode. The music is all from artists performing at the the IDentity Festival, an electronic music festival with loads of electronics artists including the Crystal Method, Kascade and DJ Shadow. Besides giving a review of the festival I talk about the recent Selena Gomez show and how I keep getting unwanted input on my photography. If you want to see good photographers, look no further than Joe Gall and Katie Rodriguez.

Here's another done in the last second interview video. I saw Anarbor a few months ago on tour with the Rocket Summer. I hadn't heard of them before that night but of all the bands that played Anarbor was the rowdiest and got the best crowd reaction. My daughter liked them so much she bought both their albums.
