Imagine Dragons “It’s Time” – The Occidental Saloon Acoustic Performance

I heard about Imagine Dragons a few months ago when a few SpaceX employees I knew were claiming the song “Radioactive” as their unofficial anthem before their successful launch of the Dragon Capsule; which went on to dock with the ISS in late May.

Since then Imagine Dragons has become a household name with their music finding its way onto some of the NBC Olympic ads, and further fueled by the news that they will have their first full length album “Night Visions” releasing in September.

Below is a great video of them performing an “acoustic” version of “It’s Time” filmed by the Occidental Saloon, which is a performance music video production group based in Provo, Utah.

The Make Believe “Give It A Million” + Back Story

The Make Believe is an up and coming band based out of New Zealand. They popped up on my radar a few months back with their incredible cover of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful“. Admit it, you’ve caught yourself singing along to it when it comes on the radio! This video, of front men Tyler Vivian and Mike Lake, sitting on a futon on a Wednesday afternoon or something propelled them into the spotlight and helped them get a record deal within a few weeks of this video going viral.

Since then The Make Believe has released a single, “Give It A Million” and are currently in the works on a full length studio album. So get your boy-band-pants on and get ready to feel so satisfied and yet oh so guilty about their pop-punkiness in all it’s glory.

Walk off the Earth – Stubb’s Austin – June 2nd!

So you may remember my post from a few months back talking about the incredible cover of Somebody That I Used to Know that a band called Walk off the Earth covered. Well if you have been itching to see them ever since like I have and you are going to be in the Austin, Texas area tomorrow evening you should go out around 7:00-ish and see them play at Stubb’s. Info HERE!

I have personally never seen these guys but they look like they would be a lot of fun to see live and definitely worth the super cheap ticket price of $15. Video below if you need a refresher.

Mother Falcon – SXSW Showtimes, Just to See Her Smile (Official Video)

A few months ago, one of IVDUB‘s founding fathers was inducted into a fantastic local Austin band called Mother Falcon.

Andrew Fontenot is my good friend and has been traveling the country with them for some time now helping them grow as a group with his magical saxophone skills.

Mother Falcon is playing more than a few shows during the 10 days which is SXSW (South By Southwest), so no excuses for not being able to see them! And for all of you who haven’t had the privilege of seeing them, take this opportunity to get out and allow them to change your life!

You will find their newest music video – Just to See Her Smile – as well as their show-times during SXSW 2012 after the break. Continue reading Mother Falcon – SXSW Showtimes, Just to See Her Smile (Official Video)
