OutKast to Tour 40+ Music Festivals

Coachella confirmed last week that OutKast would be reuniting for the major music festival, but don’t worry if you didn’t snag your tickets because you’ll be able to catch OutKast at 40 other music festivals this year. We just know that one of them will be Sasquatch or Bumbershoot or BOTH! The special music festival tour is to “to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their unique and influential sound”.

Specific dates have yet to be released, but it’s only a matter of time before all of our favorite music festivals begin unveiling their lineups. If your city doesn’t have a major music festival in it, it’s likely that they will have some random cities sprinkled in as well.

I saw Big Boi at Bumbershoot in 2011 and all I was hoping for was Andre 3000 to come out and surprise everyone on stage. That never happened, unfortunately, but now I know it’s really not too late!

OutKast to Reunite in 2014

Hey Ya!

Big Boi and Andre 3000 are back y’all. In 2014, OutKast will reunite for a number of performances across the country – one of which will include headlining Coachella which you just know we’ll be watching either live or streaming. Is there new music in the works? Will anyone else be joining them on stage? We don’t know yet, but it’s only a matter of time. Regardless, we’re pretty happy about this reunion and we’re looking forward to the surprises.

School Rivalry – The Right Way

Today, I discovered a very interesting video circulating on YouTube. 500 students from Shorewood High School had come together to create this music video to Hall and Oats’ You Make My Dreams Come True,” after they were challenged by their rival Shorecrest High School. The whole video was filmed backwards! It’s amazing and totally worth the watch. The second video is from Shorecrest. Which do you think is better?

In the past I have seen high school rivalry become downright ugly. I was disappointed to hear earlier this year that there was graffiti written all over the walls, a fire starting, and a classroom window broken. All in one night.

Is this really what school rivalry is all about? Do we have to damage things to make a statement about who’s school is better? This incident will not be the last. The younger generation will hear about it and will always try to upstage them. At what point do we realize it’s time to grow up? You’re hating a school for what? Because you’re supposed to. Because the older kids did and you have to too.

Thank you Shorewood and Shorecrest for participating in a school rivalry that shows spirit, fun, class, and maturity.
