Watch FMLYBND jam out in the beverage aisle of a California convenience store below:

TuneCore and Swisher Sweets officially premiere their first Convenience Store Session video today – amazing talent in a unique spot. The Convenience Store Sessions will feature a 10-episode video series that capture surprise pop-up performances from some of our favorite artists and bands. The first video features Santa Barbara’s FMLYBND – their electrifying energy and sound makes it feel like you are right there jammin’ alongside them!

Wondering how it works? The production and sound crew film as a band comes in, sets up and plays live while the store is open. The footage catches all the unrehearsed interactions between the band, employees and actual customers as they see something amazing develop right before their eyes in a short, unique setting – a convenience store.  The sessions are unannounced, so you’ll just have to stumble upon one to see it live.

Credit for the Convenience Store Sessions is owed to Swisher Sweets and their Swisher Sweets Artist Project, in association with TuneCore. The #SwisherArtistProject is an ongoing initiative that provides unique opportunities for both artists and fans – artists are able to create, share, and pursue their passion, and fans are able to be at the forefront of what’s new and emerging in the world of music, arts and entertainment.

The night began with a packed performance by fish-out-of-water rapper Nova Rockefeller, whose set combined the artist’s flair for raw rhymes, melodic rock-driven raucous, and laugh-out-loud wackiness. Defying easy categorization, Nova got people jumping, fists occasionally pumping, and left the crowd eager for more.

TuneCore Live LA March recap: Sam Outlaw, George Byrne and Alexander Cardinale

Posted by | News | No Comments

It’s hard to believe that we’ve now held four awesome, packed-to-the-hilt TuneCore Live events – but you better believe it! While performers from the January/February shows at Bardot and our TuneCore Live Austin SXSW party have ranged in genre from synth-pop and electro-indie to hip hop and straight ahead rock, our most recent bill featured artists who geared towards the singer/songwriter scene, with hints of Americana, folk and country sprinkled in.

As always, a big thank you is in order to our sponsors TuneCore, Swisher Sweets, Swinghouse, Dropkloud and Bardot-Hollywood, and to the amazing artists who performed – Sam Outlaw, George Byrne, and Alexander Cardinale.

CraveOnline did an excellent job at capturing the night on film for us and provided a great highlight reel of interviews with the performers below:

 

Kicking off the night’s festivities was Sam Outlaw, who brought a spectacular full band to give the audience the full experience of his ‘SoCal Country’-sound. We enjoyed songs from last year’s self-titled EP as well as teasers from his upcoming release, Angeleno.

Up next was the talented George Byrne and his band. Through his songs, Byrne shared his journey of packing up his things in his hometown of Sydney, Australia and heading an ocean away to Los Angeles.

11074322_796316560445428_5067350583598686429_nCapping off our night was an energetic performance from Alexander Cardinale. With the crowd Cardinale shared his brand of sentimental, carefree, folk-tinged pop that delighted all in attendance.

To make things even cooler, we had Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of DAWES bringing their tastes to the DJ booth for all to enjoy between sets!

Couldn’t make this one? No sweat! We’ll have another awesome TuneCore Live show at Bardot on Wednesday, April 29th – come hang out with us!
