Last Saturday, we threw a Silent Rave party on the Gawker rooftop with a performance by Eclectic Method. The weather was perfect and robots were on time and serving high energy cocktails. Thanks to Gawker and Diesel for cohosting and to everyone who made it so much fun!

Week 8 Contest Winners!

Congrats to the Summer Music Junkie Contest Week 8 winners!

1) Marq Romero – CMJ 2010 Music Marathon badge
2) Michelle Fantus – CMJ 2010 Music Marathon badge
3) Gummo McGraw

Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their favorite show of the week:

Marq:

My favorite show last week was at Electric Zoo. It was seeing The Glitch Mob. Their set was so hard and electric it had everyone going nuts. From a DJ crew to a live electronic band I think these guys are doing something that most artists are not doing yet. They were nice enough to hang out afterwards and hand out cd’s and take pics with the fans.

Michelle:

Invited by a friend, I didn’t know what to expect before the Zach Williams show at Bowery Ballroom on Thursday 9/2/10.  I hadn’t heard of him before, and I expected that he’d have a generic sound like many other self-named, acoustic, singer-songwriter acts.  He set himself apart and certainly surprised me with his impressive vocal range, heartfelt lyrics, and talented backing band (especially the female backing vocalist!).  The venue was filled with an audience who danced and echoed his lyrics; truly demonstrating the connection he had with them.  When I got home later that night, I immediately bought his latest album, Story Time.  The songs sound just as good recorded and I can’t wait to see him play in the city again.

This marks the end of the Summer Music Junkie Contest! We’ve had a great summer with amazing shows and prizes. Thanks to everyone who participated, you guys rock! We will soon be announcing the lucky person who has been crowned Summer Music Junkie, so stay tuned!

A special shout out to this week’s points leaders – Amber, Dean, and Edwina!

Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their favorite show of the week:

Valerie:

This past week I saw the Camp Rock 2 Tour, featuring the Jonas Brothers. I had caught a free show of theirs in NYC last year and was impressed by their talent live but it wasn’t the full concert experience with lights and pyrotechnics so when I saw these tickets were on sale for $10 my friends and I jumped on them. Sitting through the Camp Rock songs were boring but the Jonas Brothers honestly blew me away. I only know a few songs by them but I’d say it was well worth my $10. Oh, and did I mention it was POURING RAIN during the entire show? Everyone left completely and hopelessly soaked to the bone, but man was it fun!

The Summer Music Junkie contest is coming to a close this week but we’ve still got some great prizes left, including CMJ Marathon Badges and Two Doors Cinema Club tickets! Here’s your last chance to earn points and win… good luck!

3) Clara Hung – CMJ 2010 Music Marathon
4) Jermaine Onwubere – Soulive at Webster Hall tickets

A special shout out to this week’s points leaders – Dean, Amber, and Joe.

Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their favorite show of the week:

Jermaine:

My favorite show this week was The English Beat at Webster Hall on Sat. August 21.  “I Confess,” I’ve been listening to The English Beat since I was 12 years old and never got a chance to see them live until this past weekend.  It was great hearing live versions of all of their songs that I had memorized so long ago while listening to my walkman on the school bus or on my record player while dancing in front of my bedroom mirror like Ranking Roger.

Jennifer:

Titus Andronicus made a humid night a bit more sweaty with a raucous set at Glasslands on Wednesday. The unbearably hot venue made for the perfectly appropriate environment for these rabble-rousers’ performance, which mixed tunes from both “The Airing of Grievances” and “The Monitor.” While the barroom intimacy of this show was unbeatable, I definitely look forward to the band’s Webster Hall show later in September.

We’ve got some great prizes this week including CMJ Marathon Badges and backstage passes to Mystery Jets so keep earning points for your chance to win! Good luck!

Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their favorite concerts of the week:

Alan:

This week, I caught three shows at Prospect Park, each featuring remarkable and remarkably different female singers. Alison Mosshart, the dark, sexy singer from The Dead Weather chain smoked throughout her performance, parading around the stage and flopping to the ground like a relic from the heyday of rock ‘n roll. Emily Haines from Metric offered a brighter, more upbeat performance. But no one would top Sharon Jones. A ball of energy packed into a disco-ball-dress, her high-intensity performance delivered to an enormous crowd at the Prospect Park bandshell should earn her the title “The hardest working woman in show business.”

Hana: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings @ Prospect Park on August 7th

Packed a picnic and sat on a blanket right outside the Bandshell at Prospect Park. Had a great view of the crowd and the stage. Atmosphere was amazing and Sharon Jones sparkled on stage, literally.

Edwina: Salt N Pepa / Naughty By Nature / Slick Rick @ Wingate Field on August 2nd

One of the best shows I saw last week was Salt N Pepa/Naughty By Nature/Slick Rick concert at Wingate Field. I grew up with music by all three acts but hadn’t seen any of these performers live until last Monday. It was a blast and the fact this show was free still blows my mind!

We’ve got some amazing prizes this week including CMJ badges, tickets to  Rock The Bells, and tickets to Kele. So go to shows this week and post recaps on SuperGlued and keep on earning points!

Checking the setlist after a show to see the name of a song or to check out what you missed out on is a must for many folks. That’s why we’re excited to be partnering with setlist.fm. Using their API, setlists posted on setlist.fm from shows around the world will now appear on SuperGlued. Here are a few from recent shows:

Vampire Weekend at Fox Theater in Oakland

SuperGlued Demo via Download Squad

Posted in Uncategorized by superglued on April 13, 2010

We had a chance to chat with Victor from Download Squad over at SXSW. He used a super-compact flip cam to capture this clip. Sound still came out good.  Here’s an excerpt from the blog posting:

SuperGlued is a music lover’s dream. It’s a one-stop shop for people who go to shows and gigs regularly, offering schedules, tickets, social networking and sharing tools. For instance, you could see who is playing locally, buy a ticket, meet people who are going to the show, later share your pics of the show and ultimately brag about (or remember) all the shows you went to and logged on SuperGlued. It’s one of those sites you can use as a casual user or a superfan, and I think it’s going to be a big hit with artists and fans.

You could find the full posting and other great stuff at Download Squad.
