This is shameless advertising, but I don’t care since this is our site. We officially started a podcast. We talk about everything that we do on the site here: new music, new events, reviews, previews, news, etc. etc. etc. It is awesome. It is hosted by Squigz and GibStarr along with me sometimes. We submitted it to iTunes so expect to be able to subscribe. We hope to get it on YouTube and Soundcloud as well, but for now it is on this site to stream and/or download! Awesome. Plus, I purchased a new (and better) microphone and I do not plan on skyping from my iPhone with my iPhone mic/headphones. Check it out here!
New Las Vegas Nightclub, After, Bans Mainstream EDM
This is one of the funniest stories I have heard in a while. There is this new club that opened up in Las Vegas called After. Essentially, it is an afterhours club as it opens up at 3:30am and closes at 8:30am. Normally new clubs come and go, but even before this opened, they made a name for themselves and underground EDM. They “leaked” a photo that bans all mainstream EDM and lazy artists. A #proper afterhours.

Thanks for reading this week’s Sunday Roundup! I’m sorry there wasn’t any last week. I had just come home from Mexico and developed pneumonia so I wasn’t quite up to par. Truthfully, this is why I wasn’t really posting all week. That said, look forward to this week and be excited!
