As we make our way into the weekend we thought we’d leave you with a song and a music video. We’re hardly experts when it comes to the songs that the kids are listening to nowadays, but we certainly couldn’t help but get a kick out of the video.
Dawes is the band behind the song From a Window Seat, and the whole video takes place inside an airplane. The lyrics reference seatbelts, flight attendants pointing to exit signs, and where all the passengers are headed. As the song progresses the lead singer kind of cooks up stories about the paths of the travelers, as we are treated to some nice shots of the cabin. It brings you right to the skies regardless of where you are, or at least it felt that way to us.
Along with Pearl Jam, Green Day, the Offspring, and Rage Against the Machine, they both played during their early years at what is today arguably South Street's most historic bar: The Legendary Dobbs.
And we're not talking "they all played here" as in a large venue like Madison Square Garden where everyone and their mother have performed - we're talking about a place where you'd be lucky to legally fit a hundred people. The Dobbs opened in 1974 under the name "JC Dobbs," and apparently had a knack for grabbing the top up-and-coming talent of the 90s grunge era, both before and after they made it big.
Nirvana, for example, played the Dobbs in 1989, one year before Dave Grohl joined the band, and then once again in 1991 after the release of its infamous Nevermind album.
One of this week's most coveted tickets is for Stand Up For Heroes, a rock concert/stand up comedy show to benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
Stand Up aims to bring together leaders from business, entertainment, government, and philanthropy to raise funds to help injured service members and their families. The night's line-up includes Bill Cosby, Jim Gaffigan, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Bruce Springsteen and Roger Waters. But, the real stars of the event will be the service members who will be in attendance.

It might have one of the worst names in festival history, but it sure has caught on and gathered attention as a pretty big deal in Austin, a city that doesn't take its music lightly. The Fun Fun Fun Fest returns for its 8th year on November 8-10 with a lineup that goes well beyond music to showcase stand-up comedy, alternative sports, and the local food scene.
In addition to big acts like Snoop Dog (Lion), M.I.A., and Slayer, the FFF Fest will feature dozens of musicians as well as comedians, led by Sarah Silverman and Tenacious D. You can see the full lineup here. There will also be some extreme sports on site, including vert ramp skating and biking, wrestling (there's apparently a ring), and the good ole' fashioned Texas favorite, the mechanical bull.

Mumford & Sons' Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers Festival Tour is in full swing and, surprisingly, tickets are still available for three upcoming shows.
The band dubs the tour "a music festival that celebrates local people, food and culture, where everyone pitches in and everybody gets something back." For the second year in a row they've spent months selecting unique places, creating venues, building lineups, planning the after-parties, and getting to know the locals.

We didn't think it possible, but Paris Hilton has overpacked for a trip...and admitted it!
Earlier today, Paris Instagrammed a photo of her luggage for her DJ gig on the Spanish party island of Ibiza, captioning it thus: "Unpacking all my luggage. This is brutal. I'm never packing this much again."
Pictured are at least 10 rolling suitcases of checked baggage size, plus two cases and a few smaller items here and there. Heaven help whoever is paying her extra baggage fees, unless of course the club is just sending a private jet with a cargo compartment large enough. At press time, the image had amassed approximately 16,000 "likes."

The three day fest kicks off this Friday, July 12, and is the last stop of Yahoo! On the Road, which has already brought live music around the world, from San Francisco to Berlin.
Two London DJs have turned their love of vinyl records into a project that benefits the whole community. Sophie Austin and Ellie Rendell were constantly trying to build up their vinyl collections for DJing gigs, then had the idea that a library-type rental service would be a great way to pool their resources with other music fans. The Vinyl Library opened yesterday in Stoke Newington in northwest London.
After either paying a small membership fee or donating some of their vinyl to the store's collection, members may borrow up to five records at a time. Austin and Rendell soon plan to screen music documentaries in the space and offer DJ lessons, especially to other women. They're open every day from 11-9 and are staffed by volunteers, so stop by and check out this welcome addition to the Hackney music scene.

Sometimes we need a little bit of a travel pick-me-up, and that’s especially the case when the countdown to the next adventure is looking a little lengthy. Thanks to Delta you might be able to take a little bit of a mental vacation, as they’re bringing the up in the air feeling right into your ears—in a good way.
For quite some time Delta has been creating snazzy playlists each and every month for their boarding music, and now it looks like they’re ready to beam them to your mobile device or computer. They’ve started to toss these songs—think of them as an airline mix tape—onto Spotify, so they’re there for your listening pleasure whenever you need them.
Well, it's been a whole entire year since all of Europe was singing and dancing to the annual song contest, Eurovision. Last time we watched, the insanity went down in Baku, Azerbaijan and Sweden won, so this year they played hosts in the Southern city of Malmö.
The contest as a whole has held the reputation of being quite the show, a mix of both native tongue and English lyrics accompanied by flamboyant costumes and overly produced choreography. This year was no exception. While the Russian grannies from last year didn't make the cut, 2013's winner did come from another Scandinavian country; Denmark.
If you're not up on the rules, this means Eurovision heads to Copenhagen for 2014.
