Evan Mulvihill: Ne-Yo, Third Eye Blind, and Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark Support the Troops at Alliance for Veteran Support Benefit
Huffington Post - over 4 years
R&B superstar Ne-Yo and Third Eye Blind rocked a charity concert by performing at the Intrepid Air, Sea, and Space Museum in New York City last Thursday. The benefit raised money for the Alliance for Veteran Support (AVS), an umbrella group that funnels money to five beneficiaries, all of whom share a common goal of helping those who have given service to the U.S. military. Other attendees included MC Jason Dundas, Stephen Baldwin, Miss Universe, and Orfeh. Seeing as he was wearing dog tags with diamonds on them, I asked Ne-Yo if he'd ever join the army. "No!" he responded resoundingly. "I have a few uncles in the armed forces, Marines, Army, some navy people," he explained. "I always remember them being very, very very strict and a little mean." The "Let Me Love You" singer isn't all soft, though: he's done two military movies (Battle: Los Angeles and Red Tails), so he knows the drill. "Training for those movies gave me an all new kind of respect for these dudes," ...

Occupy This Album: 99 Songs for the 99 Percent
Mother Jones - almost 5 years
Various Artists Occupy This Album Music for Occupy Like the '60s-era social movements that inspired the performers at Woodstock, the Occupy movement has proved an irresistible draw to musicians. Dropping in on Zuccotti Park last fall was a who's who of socially conscious music luminaries from Russell Simmons and Kanye West to Rufus Wainwright and Sean Lennon. They came out to inspire the protesters with their music or celebrity, but the inspiration apparently works both ways—judging, at least, from this new box set featuring 99 songs by A-list performers from Willie Nelson to Ladytron to Thievery Corporation. Though many of the songs were recorded before last fall, others dwell directly on Occupy Wall Street. They don't always succeed, but an Occupy-themed track by Third Eye Blind, "If There Ever Was A Time," is a gem. (Listen below.) Over a typically catchy hook, front man Stephan Jenkins proclaims: If there ever way a time, it would be now, that's all I'm sayin' If there ...

Joan Jett still rocks harder than the rest of SunFest
The Palm Beach Post - almost 5 years
Photos: Saturday at SunFest | Photos: Faces and festival-goers | Schedule, full coverage There’s rock – the Top 40 type that the All-American Rejects claim as hard-hitting stuff but really amounts to hard pop. And then there’s real rock ‘n’ roll – the music that 53-year-old Joan Jett still owns. Tyson Ritter, the lead singer of All-American Rejects, tried to act the ladies’ man at SunFest on Saturday. But at times he sounded creepy and sexist, trying way too hard to act cool. Then a woman came on stage and showed Ritter how to really rock. Joan Jett, 53, is and always will be the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. She can still draw an overflow crowd at the Meyer Amphitheatre, ripping her guitar with the best of them. On Saturday she busted out favorites like Do You Want to Touch Me? and Cherry Bomb, from her first group, The Runaways. SunFest was lucky to have her. But it was the All-American Rejects that drew the largest crowd of the night because pop sells. It drew the kind of guy who ...
