Here’s my predicition for one of the biggest stars of 2012: Lana Del Rey. She performed a way sold out show in New York a few weeks ago to mark one of her very first live performances. She’s going to be on Saturday Night Live (hosted by Daniel Radcliffe) in a few weeks and she’s due to make the transition from being the most talked about singer in the blogosphere to the most talked about singer in the lame-stream, I mean mainstream. One of the songs she’ll probably play on SNL is her infectiously haunting track”Video Games.”
Before you watch this video, here’s what I want to do: imagine a stadium full of people singing along to this song. Every time I hear “Born Free” by The Rassle, I picture that in my mind. I am looking forward to a time in the very near future when my vision comes true. On September 15, 2010, I got to see the Rassle perform this instant classic at an intimate show at New York’s Mercury Lounge. If you love this song, which I know you will, you still have the chance to download the studio version of “Born Free” as well as 3 other fantastic tracks from the Rassle for free on their official site. This offer won’t last long so head on over to their site and tell a friend! For the New Yorkers reading this site, The Rassle is playing another intimate gig tonight, September 17, 2010 at Webster Hall. You can get tickets here.
Turn up your speakers and enjoy this HD video of superstars-in-the-making, The Rassle!
The grand finale – “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin'” by Scissor Sisters, live and acoustic at Amoeba Music in Los Angeles on September 8, 2010. USA, let’s make the Sisters as big in their native country as they are in the rest of the world. They deserve it! Scissor Sisters rule!
