Are you looking for some beebop or other forms of retro music? It’s kinda hard to find some of your old favorites with everybody pushing the new music of today. I can download lots of Lady Gaga or some other artiest but finding great hits by favorite artists like Buddy Holly or Ortis Redding can be more difficult.

When I search for oldies love songs for example I expect to find content from the 40′s and 50′s and not stuff from the 90′s or 80′s. If you do a generic web search on something like Apple or even the Zune music store you often times come up with some Top40 hits type of lists with more commercially successful music being offered. I often times want to find more unique music selection specifically targeted at oldies of the past.

The don’t make music like they used to and I just prefer to listen to my old time hits more than I do the new music you find on the radio these days. Even the old time radio stations are polluted with new style advertisements and interruptions so you never really get that sense or feeling of being alive in the old days.

The IOldiesMusicStore.com website offers an great selection of my favorite hits and I can find oldies loves songs or anything else I want from the last 5 decades in one easy to search and operate website. Their selection is great and the oldies downloads are a great way to listen to some of my old time classic favorites.

After Salem

Webpage: http://www1.indiemusicworks.com/After_Salem/
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
Description: heavy driving alternative rock
Biography: In 2005 Morgan, who is now the lead singer/writer/and rhythm guitarist of After Salem was accepted into the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. That year the academy gave him the highest scholarship they gave anyone from 3 different countries. He couldnt afford to live out there. After driving out to Los Angeles from Indianapolis, Indiana and staying at a Days Inn in Santa Monica, CA, Morgan had to leave because he couldnt find a roomate. He drove back to Indianapolis completely heart broken.

A few months pass and Morgan forms a band from an old hobby he picked up in highschool, the guitar. They called themselves Torn Out at first. He taught himself by learning tabs from all of his favorite bands, who he now considers teachers. In 2008 Morgan spent the last $500 he had on recording two songs for their demo. Those songs were “Just The Same” and “Picture.” A month goes by after submitting these songs to everyone he knows and even passing free demos out at Logan International. After Salem gets heard on the radio for the first time. The members of the band at the time, Morgan, Josh, Detro, and John’s phones all go nuts as their friends are calling and texting them that they are being played on Indy’s only alternative rock station X103.3. That moment made them to decide that they were going back into the studio for more of this addiction. “These Things” was next up on the list to be recorded. That song is now their single and they are currently about to launch an online radio. sattellite radio, and college radio that very well could take them straight to the top!

The current members of After Salem are now Morgan Casteel, Adam Detro, Jack Martin, and Ricky Ramos.

AFTER SALEM

 

It was back in 2005 that After Salem began its journey. Back then they were known as Torn Out. They did their tour around Indianapolis playing everywhere they could – college parties, etc… It was rough for them in those years, moving from garage to garage looking for a place to practice. Unknowing to them, those practice years proved to be the foundation of what they are today. In 2007, a chance booking at a Salem, Indiana turned into a major snow storm. Showing up in force they did. The few of the other bands that were scheduled to play that night also, didn’t make it. With strings freezing and an unheated facility, Torn Out left all torn up. After that incident, they changed their name to After Salem. This name had the right ring about it and so did their music. Their new single, “These Things”, was played on the local alternative rock station x103.3 and they couldn’t get enough of this group.
The only remaining original and founding member, Morgan Casteel has been writing,singing and playing rhythm guitar for the band. Other members include Jack Martin (lead guitar, back up vocals), Detro (bass/keys). Their long time friend and studio band mate, Lewis Gill plays the upright bass for them in the studio when needed.

Their single, “These Things” is off of their new CD which is tentatively titled “After Salem”. You can read anything you want into this single – It’s up for self interpretation. My feelings about this single is pure rock. It has a fabulous beat, heavy on the vocals, heavy on the drums, heavy on the guitar and with heavy drama. It has well placed hooks and it is an extremely radio friendly song.

One of After Salem’s biggest moment was that they were one of the first unsigned heavy alternative rock bands to get played on a alternative rock radio station in Indianapolis, WRZX 103.3 X 103. They are also play regularly on a local band radio show called The Indy X-Files. They were also nominated at alternativeaddiction.com to win the Next Big Thing contest in 2008. They are also looking into touring.

After Salem is currently working with A & R Select out of West Hollywood, Ca., for a record deal, publishing, licensing and/or placement opportunities. For additional information, please contact A & R Select at:

“From the first bass notes into that haunting guitar riff…then those drums! After Salem grabs you and draws you into this song with a slick, big sound. Think Breaking Benjamin meets Godsmack, while Metallica watches on.

The vocal is delivered with power, emotion and confidence. The story unfolds into a memorable chorus anthem to these things that rip us apart. Very interesting sound on the guitar for the lead and it was skillfully woven back and forth through the track. Great, driving Alt-Rock.”

- Joy@Play (musician,singer,song writer)

After Salem is one of the new age sounds of alternative rock/metal for the future. The driving melodies and passionate lyrics add to the already clever musicianship and blazing energy within the music. “These Things” is a new rock anthem and its hard-hitting rock ballad feel is refreshing in an ever-changing music scene. Clean production and moving arrangement makes this song a stand out piece and one you can’t miss. Great work all around and I look forward to the future of what this band can do. Well done!

- Billy D (musician, singer, song writer)

Cheap concert and sports events tickets for sale

Concert Tickets

We are deep into Spring and Summer is almost here and the concerts and sports events are getting cranked up. I went online to check out the going rate on tickets for concerts and found some great deals on crap bands. The selection of sporting events was good with lots of football deals available,. I can save big on New York Jets Tickets by shopping online and buying early. I am not a big Jets fan but traveling to a big game carries enough excitement on it’s own.

They also had some good prices on San Diego Chargers Tickets which would be nice if I travel to California as expected. I would also like the opportunity to see a good football game on the West Coast and what better way than with cheap tickets.

If I don’t want to see a football game there is a chance I might want to go to a good concert or music show. I’m not a huge fan of boy bands but the wife sure wants me to buy Backstreet Boy Tickets so we can catch a wiff of her childhood dreams. I myself would rather check out something different and I might just buy us some Rascal Flatts Tickets but I would probably have to make a concession and buy her Celine Dion Tickets which is unthinkable to be honest. I guess I’ll have to think about things a bit more because the choices and sacrifices I might have to make are going to be tough.

When was the last time you went to a concert?

When was the last time you went to a concert? It’s been about 6 months for me but some of my friends have not gone to a good music show in more than 2 years. One friend of mine says he’ll never go to another show because he got burned on some concert tickets he bought. Apparently lots of these online ticket companies charge hidden fees on top of the ticket price and additional surcharges. Well lucky for me I know about the interwebs and all the great deals you can find online. I have a good friend who told me about a ticket vendor with No Hidden Fees and when I checked out their website it was in fact a great deal.

Not only were there No Hidden Fees but the ticket prices were some of the cheapest you ever saw and with the savings we got I bought an extra ticket for the old lady. She hasn’t been so happy since I let her start sleeping in the house. I don’t understand what these hidden fees are for and why you need to pay them just to buy some great concert tickets but apparently it happens a lot in the ticket selling business.
