(BERKELEY, CA, U.S.A) MARCH 7th, 2017 – This time of year, everyone is getting ready to head down to Austin for SXSW (South by Southwest).

Kevin Beadles - All Down for Austin
All Down for Austin” was written by Beadles and his lead guitarist, John Foster. The lyrics capture their wild adventure traveling from Northern California down to Texas to perform in Austin for the first time. With 3000 bands converging on the “Live Music Capital of the World,” few things went as expected, but they still had a blast playing there. Kevin explains, “This song was born the night we gigged in a dive bar down on 6th Street and could barely hear ourselves over the roar of the party outside.”

That night in Texas turned out to be a serendipitous evening for Beadles, as his band got to meet popular New Orleans roots rockers, The Iguanas, and legendary drummer Brady Blade (DylanEmmylouDave Matthews). Blade not only is mentioned in the lyrics of “All Down for Austin” but played on the track. Kevin elaborates, “The next year, we’re back in Austin, this time sharing a bill with Brady. So, we ask him if we could give a shout-out in our new song. To our surprise, he not only agreed but said, ‘Hell, I’ll play drums on it if you want me to!”
A stack of talented artists accompanies Blade and Beadles on “All Down for Austin,” including top-notch Bay Area artist Loralee Christensen on backing vocals. Robert Powell – a guitar guru who’s worked alongside Peter Gabriel and Jackson Browne – lent his skills on the lap steel. “All Down for Austin” will be on Beadles’ forthcoming album titled, Be Young Today, due out in 2018. Beadles has a new music video to accompany this fun-loving, country-fried composition. So, if you don’t have time to trek to Texas, follow Kevin Beadles’ “track,” and experience SXSW by cueing up “All Down for Austin.”

The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her.

In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
