On January 11th HP, Intel and Twitter will team up for the first ever live stream of a concert via Twitter’s new “Brand Pages” feature at the Consumer Electronics Show. The event will feature legendary DJ/Producer Tiësto as he takes center stage at Encore’s XS nightclub in Las Vegas. Along with the live event a new 10 episode web series entitled “In The Booth” will give us access for a behind the scenes look into Tiësto’s life and impact on the world EDM. So tune in at 10:00pm (PT), which means for us in Chicago it’ll be a midnight show and those on the East coast you should chime in at 1:00am, and interact with other while watching the live stream by tweeting the hash tag #TiestoLive.
Saturday night welcomed the Red Bull Soundclash to Miami’s newly renovated Bayfront Park. Over 80,000 onlookers came to witness the battle between singer-songwriter/producer Mike Posner and actor/rapper Ludacris, as well as partake in the NYE festivities.
The high-profile event saw an onslaught of appropriated venders providing delicious food, cold beverages, and other coinciding items to further heighten enjoyment for attendees. Renowned mixtape composer and DJ Mick Boogie kicked off the sounds for the evening, as he ripped the ones and twos and at one point, mixed approximately five tracks in a row from Jay and Kanye’s Watch The Throne — and yes, it was magical.
Luda and Mike Posner each took the stage just before 10pm, as both treated the fans with a few of their popular hits before kicking off the impromptu competition. The Clash saw each artist calling home to his own stage, both facing directly towards each other. Upon going round after round, blow after blow, the pair of high energy performers hit one stage together in letting loose a joint performance, just before counting down to ring in the new year.
If you were unable to attend, just put it this way — it was something you’ll definitely want to check out, if presented the opportunity in the future. Hit the jump to see a few shots from the event, as we hope you all have had an amazing holidays and happy New Year.

Decked out in full Halloween attire we were off for a night like no other. Strange looks on the train and even stranger costumes in line, which wrapped around the building, were our greetings to the Congress Theater. Read More
Halloween has come and passed but the memories have all lasted, well at least the ones we captured on video. This Halloween weekend in Chicago was packed with some incredible shows courtesy of React Presents. The Smokers Club Tour came by and got the entire city all high, The Check Yo Ponytail Tour left the Mid completely trashed and finally came Freaky Deaky 2011 at the Congress Theater to round off a weekend of complete utter madness. I only made it to two of these awesome show but it was enough to leave me with an intense ringing in my ear and some pretty messed up Chuck Taylors. Read More
