For Levi: Mario Brother’s Rock Version

My nephew Levi and I discovered this gem of a video this morning.

We’d like to present the rock version of the Super Mario Brother’s theme.

He’s like his “Uncle Matt…..a nerd.”

We can’t help wondering if Goliath played Mario Brother’s at the local penny arcade growing up.



Glass Animals: New Music “Life Itself”

This week Glass Animals, an Oxford four-some with a unique sound and style, debuted new solo music for the first time in more than a year. The band debuted “Life Itself” this week and it’s available on YouTube, SoundCloud and all other major music streaming services.

The song is just what you’d expect from the band who seem to have been touring non-stop since the 2014 release of their debut album “Zaba.”

The surprise of new music will surely come as a relief to anyone, myself included, who was hoping to hear new music from the band on one of their many tour stops this summer.

GAWNews first saw the Glass Animals live at Bonnaroo last year and look forward to seeing them perform at Forecastle Festival this summer where we’ll be broadcasting live as we cover for the fifth year in a row.

Enjoy the new music and check out our Glass Animals concert coverage of their sold-out show at Headliners in Louisville.



GAW Concert Series: The Weeknd – Chicago Theater 2013

Unfortunately we’re were unable to get press credentials, well, we hadn’t grown as much as we have these days and so we didn’t ask.

Sadly, this is the only video clip from the GAW archive and we’ve been fans of The Weeknd’s music since his debut album and made the venture to the historic Chicago Theater to see him

Instead it was me and Clean Plate Club Girl, who caught the amazing sold out show and enjoyed some of the other great places Chicago had to offer. (Hint: The Chicago Art Institute is worth the visit and had some amazing exhibits.)

Bonus: We got free condoms with The Weeknd Album artwork on the packaging.
