LPU is going to give tickets to the BFD festival to LPU members before anyone else. So make sure you join today.
We’re setting aside tickets for BFD 2011 just for LPU members. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning. We’ll send you info on how you’ll be able to access the LPU ticket allotment later today.
Adam has posted more details about the LPU presale.
As usual, we set aside a separate allotment of tickets JUST for LPU members for BFD 2011 in Mountain View, CA. If you’re an LPU member, you can access the pre-sale information by clicking HERE. When you verify your membership, you’ll receive a confirmation email. Then, tomorrow at 9:00AM PDT, you’ll receive another email with a download link. When you get that, download the file and you’ll have all of the secret LPU pre-sale info. This ensures that the LPU pre-sale info remains a secret up until the last minute!
It’s a few more steps than usual, but we’re just trying to do everything we can to make sure ONLY LPU members get access to these tickets!
For the first time ever, you can purchase the “LPU9: Demos” vinyl and frame together on their own. Check it out in the LPU online store.
So yeah we lost to Shinedown, BUT we can still get back up into the game, if we vote enough to get a second chance. It’s not over yet! Go HERE to check out what I’m talking about. Thanks Charlene for letting me know.
We’re giving one eliminated band the chance to come back to Battle of the Fans to face the top two vote getters in the final round! But there’s a catch: Each day starting Friday, the rockers with the fewest votes at noon and again at 6pm will be dropped from the poll.
From Dave’s trip to Haiti, MTV conducted an interview with him, check it out.
“I just got back from Haiti last night,” Farrell said on the Los Angeles set of “Iridescent.” “I had gone over there to check on what we had been working on with Music for Relief, in conjunction with the United Nations Foundation. We’ve basically been working to install some solar-powered lighting in some of the camps there … the camp in particular that we visited had 40,000 people … and no electricity.
“So, at night, women and children are very susceptible to violence, rape, all kinds of really awful things, even when they’re doing something as simple as trying to go to use the latrines, the restrooms, et cetera,” Farrell continued. “We’ve been putting solar-powered lighting in strategic areas, and we’ve found that not only has that lowered the crime rate, but it’s given the camps a place where kids can go and play in the evenings, and, in addition to that, we have students studying and reading at the lights at night.”
And though Farrell said that he was “amazed” by the resiliency and spirit of the Haitian people, he realizes that bringing the nation back from the brink is an ongoing process — one that’s going to take a lot longer than most could imagine. But, with his bandmates, the U.N. and his fellow musicians at his side, Farrell is confident that, eventually, Haiti will recover.
“We’ve always felt like music is a very inspiring and uniting force, and with Music for Relief, we’ve always wanted it to be something that’s more,” he said. “It’s not supposed to be ‘Linkin Park for Relief’: It is really supposed to be ‘Music for Relief.’ We’ve always felt that with a united group of people, you can do a lot more than just as individuals.”
Mike talks about “Iridescent” and “Transformers 3″
