Last year’s She Rocks Awards ended on a high note with honoree Gloria Gaynor singing her inspiring hit “I Will Survive.” Little did anyone know what the rest of 2020 had in store: a global pandemic that continues to keep the live entertainment industry largely shut down. However, the show will go on. The 2021 She Rocks Awards, which is typically held at House of Blues Anaheim in conjunction with the NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, has pivoted to a virtual experience due to the contin...

Álex Lora, the godfather of Mexican rock and roll, celebrates 50 years on the road with El Tri in Anaheim

When Álex Lora played his first shows with Three Souls In My Mind, a Mexican band with English lyrics and a psychedelic name, it was October 1968. He was a 15-year-old kid from the state of Puebla, and his dreams only reached as far as the next gig, and then the one after that. Fifty years later, Lora is considered the godfather of Mexican rock and roll, his band, now named El Tri, is referred to as the Rolling Stones of Mexico, and his dream remains the same: Rock as hard you can on any given n...

It Takes Two: The Big Business Of Twinning On YouTube

At VidCon, the annual conference that celebrates all things Internet #content, it isn’t uncommon to see screaming middle school-aged girls flocking towards their favorite creator with the same fervor as a Black Friday shopper sprinting towards Best Buy’s TV section. If the latter is a crowd comprised of sleep-deprived deal hunters with a death-grip on their coffee thermoses, the former is an overwhelming wave of glitter-covered braids, sling backpacks, and t-shirts bearing slogans such as “Don’...
