How do you make the supergroup Superheavy’s album even bigger? Get Shepard Fairey to design the album cover. The band features Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, Joss Stone, Damien Marley and A.R. Rahman. I listened to a preview copy a few weeks ago and I didn’t really care for the record. Production values are great, but I don’t care for Joss Stone’s diva vocals mixed with a rough sounding Mick Jagger to a reggae beat. I am open to seeing the album performed live, however. What are your thoughts? Let us know when the album is officially released on September 20, 2011 – my birthday! That’s Superheavy!

Kylie Minogue is more than a pop princess, she’s a goddess! Her Aphrodite Les Foiles tour rolled into New York on May 2, 2011 for the first of a 3 night run, and even if you don’t care for her music, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you go see her perform. There’s great lights, visuals, costumes and of course, highly addictive dance grooves. You can see pictures, a review and the setlist here. One of the highlights of the show for me (and there were almost too many to name) was Kylie’s cover of Eurythmics’ “There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart).” You can see the video below. I had no idea she’d be performing this song, so I missed the first line. When you hear this dance version of one of my favorite Eurythmics songs, I think you’ll agree that seeing Kylie is non-negotiable when she comes to your town. Kylie plays the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on May 3 and 4, 2011 – so don’t miss it!
