Kicking off this week at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, EDM producer/DJ Skrillex has announced a four-month tour through the U.S. Following SXSW, Skrillex will play at Miami’s Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival before two shows at Coachella. Following a brief time off after Coachella, the tour goes on to a number of venues across the United States which includes shows at Tennessee’s Bonaroo festival as well as Denver’s Red Rock Ampitheatre.
Calling it the “Mothership Tour” – no relation to Parliament – the Grammy-winning DJ will be joined by Los Angeles’ Milo & Otis, Dillon Francis and DJ Snake. Francis and DJ Snake will not appear together, according to the tour schedule, but will alternate shows with Dillon Francis appearing at ten of the 18 non-festival shows.
Sydney duo What So Not is also set to appear, along with Milo & Otis, at all the tour dates. It has also been revealed that the Red Rock Amphitheatre shows in Denver will feature an expanded line-up, as yet unannounced.
Corresponding with the tour announcement, Skrillex has also released an app for iPhone and Android phones called Alien Ride, a 21st century remake of the old 8-bit “Asteroids” game. Players fly through space blasting rocks and demolishing rubble in order to unlock the “secret.” The app also features a countdown ending today (Monday, March 10th) at 6:30 p.m. EST. What happens when the countdown ends has yet to be revealed.
The app contains a locked folder that reads, “you can’t access this right now,” so the most common assumption is that this folder will be unlocked at 6:30 p.m. EST. As to the contents of the locked folder, it may contain new music tracks or even video.
A behind-the-scenes video which details the preparations for the Mothership Tour was released on YouTube yesterday. It is embedded below.
Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall has decided to retire from the NFL at 26 years old. In a blog for Huffington Post, he said he was tired of living a “private life in the public eye” as an NFL player, including being called racial slurs online. He also said he wasn’t going to hold a formal announcement or news conference explaining his decision.
“I just kind of wanted to disappear. The fact that I was done playing would’ve been clear once some time had passed, and I hadn’t signed back with the Cardinals or any other team. Maybe people would’ve thought I couldn’t get another job. Either way, I was okay with the idea of fading to black, and my legacy becoming ‘What ever happened to that dude Rashard Mendenhall? He was pretty good for a few years, then he just vanished,’” said Rashard Mendenhall himself.
Rashard played a total of six years in the NFL, five with the Pittsburgh Steelers before going to Arizona for a year. His career statistics will end at 4,236 yards on 1,081 carries, totaling to 3.91 yards per carry and 37 touchdowns. In a career that came with a lot of injuries, including a shoulder injury his rookie year, a torn ACL in 2011 and turf toe in 2013, he never really solidified himself as a superstar in the league.
He described that it wasn’t football that drove him to retirement. He still had a deep love for the game. He just hated the fact that he had to live his life under a microscope, the physical limitations that come with it and how the game has shifted more toward entertainment than fundamentals. He just wanted a chance to relax and live the life he wanted to.
So, what does the now retired Rashard Mendenhall plan on doing with his life? He wants to travel the world and write, a sentiment he echoed to Arians after the season. He says he does “have a plan moving forward, but I will admit that I do not know how things will totally shape out.”
It’s sad to see him go so soon, but we only wish him the best in his future endeavors.
It was a no-brainer, according to the St. Louis Cardinals’ third basemen Matt Carpenter. The two sides agreed to a 6-year, $52 million deal. Eyeing in on the signing was St. Louis chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt, who said “He’s the type of player you’d like to think could finish his career as a Cardinal.” The deal was finally reached after it began in August, but both sides described the negotiations as smooth.
St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak stated “It was not one of those where we were sitting there debating all of Matt’s faults or his weaknesses, because there weren’t any. He’s really a special person not only on the field but off the field.” The deal includes a team option for the seventh year, which will be in 2020 at $18.5 million. In the event that St. Louis declines the option, Carpenter would receive a $2 million buyout.
“For a baseball junkie like myself, I can’t think of a better place to play than the city of St. Louis. Busch Stadium, I still pinch myself every time I make that drive to the field. Playing in front of these fans, the city of St. Louis, Cardinal baseball as a whole, it’s just so much fun. It’s such a privilege to put on this jersey. It’s something I don’t take lightly at all,” Matt Carpenter said about playing for the Cardinals.
Matt Carpenter led the National League in doubles (55), hits (199) and runs (126). He hit .318 playing mostly second base, but will be moving back to third base this season. He hopes to continue his stellar play after earning his first All-Star selection in 2013 and finishing fourth in the MVP voting.
It didn’t take long for Carpenter to take on a leadership role. He is known in the clubhouse for his incredible work ethic and daily preparation. He has made an impact on the younger players as well as the older players.
Lady Gaga has been selected to deliver the 2014 South by Southwest Festival’s keynote address. The 27-year-old pop superstar’s speech will be delivered next Friday morning, March 14. Previous keynote address speakers include Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl, the latter of whom referred to the experience as “without a doubt, my musical life’s greatest honor.”
As for Gaga herself, she says, “I’ve been dreaming of this moment.”
On the preceding day, Thursday, March 13, Lady Gaga will give her first-ever SXSW performance at the Subb’s Doritos #BoldStage (known for it’s 50-foot vending machine). She has indicated the performance will be a “completely one-off set and experience.” Admission to the show will be granted fans who are willing to complete a series of “bold challenges” issued by Doritos. It has been announced that the singer’s performance will benefit the singer’s own Born This Way Foundation.
Famously unconventional and often controversial, Lady Gaga’s theatrics are well-known. But the singer says, “It’s all about the music and the connection with the crowd, and I want the audience in Austin to see me live in a way I never have before.”
Led by Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, the Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Among the primary goals of the Foundation is the creation of “a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world.”
“We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love,” states the Foundation’s mission statement.
For those who can’t make it to the South by Southwest performance, but still want to experience a Lady Gaga show, the singer will be continuing an extensive tour beginning late this month with an extended run in New York before hitting the road to venues in 28 other cities across the U.S. and Canada.

Yesterday, the internet was abuzz with news of Tool’s latest album being set to release this summer. It would be the first album from the band since the 2006 release 10,000 Days. Reportedly, guitarist Adam Jones had confirmed that it was finished at a meet-and-greet event preceding a show in Portland, Oregon. The story appeared first at Crave Online, and spread from there.
By the end of the day, however, the band issued a statement to Rolling Stone clearing things up: there will be no new Tool album dropping this year.
The statement explains that the “announcement” attributed to Adam Jones was merely an “off-the-cuff joke.” Jones himself took to Twitter, saying “FYI, ‘The record’s done and it’s coming out tomorrow’ is what I said yesterday, followed by ‘just kidding…’ ”
Tool is working on a new album, and it may – or may not – be released in 2015. Says front-man Maynard James Keenan, creating a new album is a “very tedious process.” The prolific singer (whose other projects have included A Perfect Circle and Puscifer) added that he would take “full responsibility if I have to,” but indicated that album creation is a collaborative process and it will take as long as it takes.
“They write the music. I wait for them to bring the music to me. They tend to go back over and over stuff. It’s a long process.” Keenan also added, “We’re all in this together.”
The misunderstanding began during a “private conversation” between Jones and a fan who attended the show in Portland. That concert was the second in a North American tour that will last through near the end of the month, with the final show being set for March 27 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Set-lists for the concert tour include songs from as far back as the 1996 release Ænima, but apparently not any fresh tracks from an as-yet incomplete fifth studio album.
