Katy Perry Inspired by ‘Roar’ Contest Entries, Discusses Concert Set for Winning High School

If they responded “no”to any of the first five questions, their verdict would be sealed in favor of the promoter. After two days of deliberations, jurors decided that AEGdid hire Murray but that the doctor was not “unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired.” “Ithink the bottom line is, there’s no reason for AEGto have known that (Murray) would do bad things,” said Royal Oakes, NBC4 legal analyst. “… Nobody had any idea he’d be feeding propofol, a surgical anesthetic, to Michael Jackson, playing Russian Roulette with Jackson’s life every night.” Jackson family attorney Brian Panish was not in court for the reading of the verdict Wednesday. Last week, he blamed AEGfor putting profit ahead of Jackson’s health. “AEG is in the business of making money,” Panish said Thursday during his closing arguments. “They didn’t want a comeback. They wanted Michael so they could make money.” The lawyer focused on emails between AEG executives referring to the fact that Jackson wanted Murray to care for him during the concerts. He also showed jurors details of a contract drafted by AEG but only signed by Murray. But defense attorney Marvin Putnam claimed that Jackson insisted on hiring the cardiologist against objections from AEG. During closing arguments, he said Jackson’s own “bad choices” and decision to hire Murray resulted in his death. “It was his money and he certainly wasn’t going to take no for an answer,” Putnam said. “AEG Live did not have a crystal ball.

Concert review: Brian Fallon w/ The Bouncing Souls at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Red Bull Sound Select ‘s mission is to help local bands get more exposure by pairing them up with more well known acts, while giving music fans motivation to check out the show by offering bargain basement prices or guest list as a reward for their help in publicizing the show. In the case of RBSS’s July 26th show at Irving Plaza, which also featured the Gaslight Anthem (my recap with photos here ), the show was actually free for chosen fans who were especially vocal promoting via social networking sites. On Monday night, the tickets were only $3, but were only available at the door. This meant you have to be a pretty dedicated fan to take off work early and wait in line without any guarantee of getting in. As a result, the house was filled with only the most enthusiastic of fans, providing a special kind of energy you don’t experience when there are casual fans just there out of curiosity taking up room. The diehards were definitely out in full force for both headliners. Since both acts share roots in New Jersey, many of their home-state fans showed up. This was clear by the amount of cheering when emcee Chris Gethard mentioned the state’s name, asking who in the crowd has fond memories of historic venues in the area such as the famed Asbury Lanes, where many crazy punk rock shows have taken place (and still take place). As is the case with most acoustic shows, there was some chattering between songs during Fallon’s set, much to the annoyance of this Examiner. Fallon’s stage banter is unrehearsed and usually ends up being hilarious exchanges with the audience (he even had Rosamilia in stitches the whole time). So if you were silly enough to talk over him, you were probably completely confused when he brought up an obnoxious drunk heckler from the crowd and had her sit on stage while he played a cover of Misfits song “Astro Zombies”, so that she could revel in the attention she so obviously craved. Thankfully, after her moment in the spotlight during that one song, she was ushered elsewhere by security, saving Fallon from any further harassment. At the tail end of Fallon’s set, Souls singer Greg Attonito sat in for a lovely version of the Gaslight Anthem’s “Handwritten”, before the rest of the Bouncing Souls joined in to play “Gasoline” and helped finish up the set with a communal vibe. Rosamilia later returned in the evening during the Souls’ set, which saw the crowd go from “singing-around-the-campfire” happy, to turning into a giant mosh pit who routinely helped their comrades up to the front so they could stage dive right next to their favorite punk rock band.

All across the country, hundreds of high schools from across the nation sent in their videos, excited for their chance at the prize. Theyre not the only ones who are feeling the excitement. GMA caught up with Perry at the iTunes Festival in London this week, and the singer was thrilled when she saw some of the contest submissions. The pop star was particularly struck by the diversity represented in the videos. Theres just so many different types of kids coming together to make these videos, and its inspiring to see people just having a great time smiling, being joyful, hopeful, not being kind of weighed down by the potential pitfalls of high school, Perry told GMA on Monday. Colo. High Schools Katy Perry Roar Lip Dub Video Goes Viral While she acknowledged that she didnt go to a whole lot of high school, she added: I imagine from what I went through it can be full of a lot of peer pressure, it can be full of a lot of bullying, it can be full of a lot of rejection and unacceptance, and it seems like through these videos people are being more accepting and just kind of strengthening themselves as a high school body. The high schools have embraced the challenge in different ways: One school did its own unique choreography. Another made its own roars. And one Colorado high schools lip dub went viral when it was posted online. Perry was inspired by the creativity displayed in the videos. Im so encouraged, because theres so much school spirit in these little videos, and everybodys coming together, it doesnt matter if you even like my music or not, youre coming together to roar and everybody has their own interpretation I think its a wonderful exercise, of school spirit and school strength, she said. Perry and GMA will pick the winning video and broadcast the concert live on GMA on Oct. 25 Perrys 29th birthday and the star already knows what shes going to do when she shares her big day with the winning high school.

Dear, Lord: Rhiannon Giddens. The chances are a good many people haven’t heard of Rhiannon Giddens, but that’s probably going to change after “Another Day, Another Time” airs on Showtime. Giddens performed two songs, including a traditional Scottish tune, and earned the night’s one in-show standing ovation.
