Outkast; Foster the People; Vampire Weekend Headline Big Guava
24 Apr 2014

This festival season, Tampa, Florida is hosting its first ever Big Guava Festival, a three-day event kicking off May 2. The Festival is being held at the Florida State Fairgrounds. The Fairgrounds, home to the Florida State Fair, also house the Mid-Florida Credit Union Ampitheatre.

Big Guava is being headlined by Outkast, Vampire Weekend, and Foster the People (May 2, 3, and 4 respectively). Other noteworthy performers include the Violent FemmesCakeTegan and SaraGirl Talk, and Slightly Stoopid. The full line-up is available at the festival website, and tickets are being sold for individual days. Tickets start at 75 dollars. Three-day passes are also available, at 165 dollars.

In addition to the performers mentioned, along with more than 30 others on four stages, the Big Guava Festival offers more than just music. The festival will take advantage of what the venue has to offer, and the price of admission also includes unlimited free carnival rides.

Festival goers can also expect to find a variety of food trucks – the Tampa Bay Area has a thriving food truck culture, and the Fairgrounds claim to have held the world’s largest ever food truck rally last year. There will also be craft beer vendors set up in beer gardens around the festival area.

Big Guava aims big. For its first year, the festival is bringing together a large and varied line-up driven by indie artists and big names. Neil Jacobsen, president of Live Nation Florida, said his company’s history with the artists was essential in beingable to assemble such a high-profile lineup for an untried festival. “We are the largest promoter in Florida, and our company has a great track record,” he said. “We want everybody to have a great time, enjoy the music, rides and food in a safe, fan-friendly environment.”

Live Nation Florida is hoping to see Big Guava Festival become a Tampa area staple and a regular festival season destination, possibly growing to rival other major music festivals like Lollapalooza or Bonnaroo.

Rolando McClain Retires Again
23 Apr 2014
Rolando McClain

Rolando McClainRolando McClain has decided to retire from the NFL for the second time. The day he was supposed to report to the Baltimore Ravens for the first day of the team’s offseason workout program, McClain sent a text message to ESPN.com saying, “I gotta follow my heart. It ain’t football. If football made me complete I would play. But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. … This means I’m done.”

A week ago, the Ravens activated the 24 year-old McClain off of the reserve-retired list. A year ago, after McClain had been released by the Oakland Raiders following a group of arrests, the Ravens signed him to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $700,000.

He hasn’t played football since the 2012 season and was no lock to make the Ravens’ roster. It was reported that he was late for a workout with team officials last week, which he later disputed. What wasn’t said was that the workout didn’t go too well. It was reported that he failed a conditioning test and it would not have been surprising if the team had released him.

He was a tremendous football player in college, attending Alabama. He ended up winning the Lambert award, which is given to the nation’s best linebacker. He was then drafted by the Oakland Raiders with the No. 8 overall pick in 2010. In Oakland, over three seasons, he recorded 246 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Most of those three seasons were marked by off-field issues, getting arrested three times in an eleven month span.

Last year, after the Ravens signed McClain, he abruptly retired to get his “priorities straight.” He re-enrolled at the University of Alabama and took classes toward his degree in family financial planning. In an interview last October, he explained his mindset at the time of his decision to retire by saying, “I was feeling like Aaron Hernandez or something, like I just wanted to kill somebody.” He indicated an interest in returning to play in the NFL. But now, he says he wants to finish his degree and coach football one day.

Joakim Noah Wins Defensive POY
23 Apr 2014
Joakim Noah

Joakim NoahJoakim Noah, center for the Chicago Bulls, has been named the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year. At a news conference, Noah said “This is very humbling to be in this situation right now.” He also took time to thank coach Tom Thibodeau conceding, “Without your system, this wouldn’t be possible.”

Noah dedicated his award to his beloved mentor, Tyrone Green, who passed away last week. “This award goes to somebody who I’ll never forget,” Noah said. “Somebody who just passed and meant so much to me, who believed in me. Mr. Green, I love you and I appreciate you and I know you’re smiling down right now really proud. This award goes to you.”

Noah is in the midst of the best season of his professional career, averaging 12.6 points per game, 11.3 rebounds per game and 5.4 assists per game during the regular season. Aside from serving as the defensive anchor for Thibodeau’s system, Noah has also become and even bigger leader on and off the court for his teammates after the loss of Derrick Rose (knee surgery) and the trade of Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“Each year I think he’s gotten better and better,” Thibodeau said. “And I think that’s a testament to his will and determination. And he’s improved in many different areas – everyone talks about the passing and his defense but offensively his scoring, his leadership, his professionalism (have grown).”

Noah picked up 100 first-place votes and earned a 555 of a possible 1,125 points. Each first-place vote is worth 5 points, a second place vote is worth three points and a third-place vote is worth one point. Noah became the first Chicago Bull to win the award since Michael Jordan won it in 1988. The emotional center also has a strong chance to make the All-NBA first team. Noah made sure to acknowledge several teammates by name – making sure they receive recognition as well.

Katy Perry Frightens Children as Drunken Clown

The full video for Katy Perry‘s “Birthday” debuts tomorrow (Thursday, April 24), but the 29 year old singer released a minute-long teaser of the video on Monday which shows several characters – all of whom are, in fact, Perry herself in disguise. The characters are intended as the world’s worst birthday party entertainers.

They include “Goldie,” an over-the-hill dancer from Las Vegas along with a seedy Craigslist clown, an animal trainer, and a Jewish MC called ”Yosef Shulem.” Perry says the video is her “most insane” ever, and recently told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel that she had gotten tired of doing wonderful, sexual” videos – here she struck a pose, bouncing her hair – and wanted to do something outlandish instead.

The result, apparently, had the singer going “undercover.” The disguised Perry attended a real birthday party unannounced. The stunt was caught on hidden camera while Katy Perry, dressed as a scary drunk clown, attacked a man with a pinata stick. She also staged a car accident, pretending to stumble blindly into the road while swinging with the pinata stick and forcing an SUV to swerve into a parked car.

It turns out that most of the party guests – including the five-year-old birthday boy himself – had no idea they were being punk’d by Katy Perry, and many of the children were reduced to tears. One woman reportedly stormed off, and a young girl cried to her mother that she wanted to leave.

Several videos of the incident at the birthday party have made their way to the internet, and reactions are largely mixed. While some people are inclined to think the pop star went to far when she scared some kids, the whole thing has certainly generated a buzz and the new video is sure to reap the attention benefit tomorrow.

2014 Country Music Hall of Fame Inductees
22 Apr 2014

This years inductees to the Country Music Hall of Fame were revealed this morning at a press conference in Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville is home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (pictured above), which works to identify and preserve the constantly evolving history and tradition of country music.

Most years the Hall announces three new inductees. (In some years, such as 2008 and 2010, there are four inductees.) The first three – Hank Williams, Fred Rose, and Jimmie Rodgers were inducted in 1961.

The 2014 Inductees are songwriter Hank Cochran (writer of the Patsy Cline hits “I Fall to Pieces” and “She’s Got You” and the George Strait classic “Ocean Front Property”), legendary bluegrass singer Mac Wiseman (nicknamed “The Voice with a Heart”) and country music’s first successful blind singer Ronnie Milsap.

At the conference this morning, 2013 inductee Bobby Bare announced the posthumous induction of Hank Cochran, who passed away in 2010. “He could break your heart with a set of lyrics,” said Bare.

Wiseman attended the conference, though the bluegrass legend is confined to a wheelchair due to his ongoing battle with post-polio syndrome. Wiseman offered an emotional thank-you to the industry and to those gathered in the crowd for the announcement.

Milsap’s induction was announced by Hunter Hayes, the 22-year-old rising country star whose second studio album is due out this May. Hayes called Milsap “an unbelievable hero of mine” whose music had changed his life. Afterward, the 71-year-old Milsap – one of country music’s most successful artists through the 1970s and ’80s – came to the podium and announced, “Let the celebration begin!”

He added, “I’ve wanted to be in the Country Music Hall of Fame for as long as I can remember.”

Milsap will get that wish, along with Mac Wiseman and (posthumously) Hank Cochran. The three will be officially inducted in  a private, invitation-only Medallion Ceremony which will also be held in Nashville later this year.
