    Corinne West- transformative new album. YUCA - new music, new distribution model

    in Music

    YUCA is a Canadian alt rock band made up of  Matt Borck on lead vocals and guitar, Andy Boldt on  bass and backing vocals, and Dave Atkinson on drums.  YUCA’s sound has been described as “epic and unparalleled” and compared to Muse, Radiohead, Coldplay, and U2.  Their live performances routinely fill stadiums engage their audiences to experience raw emotion and power.  They have launched a new music distribution model and Borck will be on hand to tell us all about it.  


    Corinne West, a Bay Area-based fourth generation Californian, has been described as “the Siren of the Sierras” with a voice that “invokes angels, if angels had a dangerous side.” Corinne’s powerful and eloquent voice, and transformative songwriting has earned her a place at the apex of  the global acoustic roots scene. She has recently released her fifth album, Starlight Highway, already praised by critics as her best ever – which is saying a lot.  Corinne will take time from the album release tour to talk with us and play some of the new tunes.

    Live Rock Solid (Joey LaRocque)

    in Sports

    RockSolid is committed to making football safer and more enjoyable for everyone. Seeing a major void in player safety in so-called "non-contact" play, former NFL players have come together and designed the first head protection ever made specifically for flag football and high school off-season practice. We believe there's no such thing as "non-contact" football, and we're here to make the game as safe as parents and players expect it to be. Subscribe to our newsletter to get the latest information on player safety, and to get updates on our efforts to protect the players and protect the game!


    RockSolid was founded by former NFL players Joey LaRocque and Caleb Hanie. During their playing days, Joey and Caleb saw many head injuries during flag football play, as well as during “non-contact" drills, and 7on7. When they retired from the NFL, Joey and Caleb knew this issue needed to be addressed immediately. Joey and Caleb designed this product to fill a significant void in player safety among our nation’s youth. It is our mission to make sure every child in the country is properly protected.
