Nine Inch Nails

COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018.

NEW DATES ADDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND.

November 30th and December 1st at The Joint Las Vegas On Sale This Week.

Due to popular demand, Nine Inch Nails have extended their fall tour with the addition of two shows at The Joint in Las Vegas. Tickets for the November 30 and December 1 concerts go on sale 9/20 at 10AM PT. The Jesus and Mary Chain will provide direct support and HMLTD will open.

Nine Inch Nails came out swinging at the COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 tour opener in Phoenix, ripping through 1992’s Broken EP in its entirety to begin the show, before diving into deep cuts and classics from the band’s vast catalog. Performances of songs from 2018’s Bad Witch and last year’s Add Violence showcased the unrivaled live acts dynamic range. The surprises in the setlist left expectant fans, many of whom earned the best seats in the house by spending hours in massive lines at the Physical World presale events, wondering what they have to look forward to as the tour barrels through their town.

COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 includes sold out, multiple night stand in marquee venues, with six dates at the Palladium in Los Angeles, two nights at Red Rocks, three at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom, and two at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. New Orleans, Detroit and more. See below for itinerary. Visit www.nin.com for ticket information. Additional opening acts along the tour route include Kite Base, Daniel Avery, Gabe Gurnsey, (Factory Floor), Death in Vegas, HMLTD and Soft Moon.

The tour comes on the heels of the release of “Bad Witch,”the final volume in a trilogy of releases that NME praised as Nine Inch Nails best release in a decade. The Atlantic noted, “Bad Witch” is enveloping and relentless: satisfyingly terse, built with an ear for energizing rhythm, and as adventuresome as anything Reznor has done. Pitchfork said, “Like his greatest albums, it works best as a whole, played loudly on headphones in a dark room.” The Hollywood Reporter hailed the recent collection of releases as Reznor’s version of David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy.

BUICK: A CLASSIC REBORN

By Krishan Narsinghani x Vaughn Lowery

360 Magazine was recently invited to test-drive the redesigned 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir FWD 1 SP in Carmel, California. The model type avenir derives from a concept car introduced in 2017. Avenir translates to “future” in French and the modern aesthetics do not disappoint. Buick has since mirrored those design elements on multiple vehicles.

Walking up to the luxury three row crossover, drivers can start their engine with a new remote start key. The Enclave introduces sharper lines and athletic curves. The headlights and taillights are slimmer to crate a skinnier look when in fact the vehicle is larger. Buick reaped the benefits of high strength steel shaving roughly 400 pounds off the previous model. Family trips just became easier with a spacey seven seater inside and roomy trunk.

This lifestyle voyager sets the stage featuring a bespoke-like interior with a two tone color pattern making the Enclave an executive family car perfect for a trip or a late-night urban outing. Avenir has not only set the bar with design but also in technology as a revolutionary rear view mirror bleeds to the corner of the screen to transform into a 300 degree back up camera. Problem solved for millions of shoppers to remain hands free. Located under the tail, drivers can find a foot activated swivel to open the trunk.

Reduce carbon footprint through carpooling while the crossover adjusts fuel efficiency at 18 miles per gallon on city roads, 26 miles per gallon on the highway and 21 miles per gallon with mixed driving.

The team alongside Buick explored Carmel-by-the-sea and the fairytale land the city has to offer. The team joined Carmel Valley Ranch to see the daily life of a professional beekeeper. 360 handled the bees, watched honey come to life and even found the queen bee do her thing. While driving around the beach-city on California’s Monterey Peninsula, Buick stopped at the harbor for some a kayaking expedition. In-between adventures, the team had a chance to get acquainted with the smooth feel and driving style of the vehicle.

The Enclave packs a 3.6L V6 with stop/start technology and nine speed automatic transmission at 310 horsepower at 6,800 rotations per minute. As one of the top luxury models, quiet cabins are enforced with QuietTuning. The weight saving translates to nimble handling and ride is soft while the body leans in the corners. The Buick Enclave Avenir’s base price is set at $53,500. Additional information can be found on their website.

Tori Kelly

GRAMMY nominated artist Tori Kelly will kick off a North American headline tour on October 18 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. The run is in support of her new project, Hiding Place, a powerful collection of R&B infused gospel songs that was produced by 12-time GRAMMY Award winner Kirk Franklin.

In addition to playing such venues as Warner Theatre in Washington DC (October 28) and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (November 8), Tori and her band will perform at several historic houses of worship, including New York City’s Riverside Church (October 30) and the Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles (November 16 & 17). Tickets go on sale Friday, September 14. See below for itinerary or visit www.torikellymusic.com

Capitol Records will release Hiding Place on September 14.

Tori recorded Hiding Place primarily at Kirk Franklin’s studio just outside Dallas. Half of the songs were penned solely by Franklin, while the remaining tracks came from a collaboration between the two artists the first time that Franklin had ever co-written in a decades-long career that’s seen his songs performed by legends like Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston.

Fans who pre-order / pre-save Hiding Place in digital format will instantly receive the first single “Never Alone” (feat.Kirk Franklin,) and “Help Us To Love” featuring The Hamiltones, official background vocalists for GRAMMY winner Anthony Hamilton.

Pirelli Leads in Original Run Flat Equipment

Pirelli has underlined its status as the preferred brand for premium and prestige car makers, proven by over 500 homologations for Run Flat tires. This is technology that allows drivers to keep going even with a puncture, so that they can reach their nearest tire dealer to change the tire. In total, there are 516 homologations of Pirelli Run Flat tires: in other words tires that have been chosen by manufacturers as original equipment for their new cars. These include 326 summer tire, 100 winter tire, and 90 all-season tire homologations. As a result, Pirelli now has more than 2800 manufacturer homologations for its product range.

Alfa Romeo is the latest marque to have homologated Pirelli Run Flat tires on its Giulia sedan. Manufacturers such as BMW, Cadillac, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, Mini and Rolls-Royce also use Pirelli tires that can keep going after a puncture. Even when a tire pressure monitoring system indicates a sudden loss of pressure, these tires are able to carry on driving for 50 miles at a maximum speed of 50mph. The specially-designed tire sidewall structure is capable of supporting the weight of the car, ensuring a safe journey to the nearest tire dealer. Pirelli’s bespoke Self Supporting system uses special reinforcements inserted into the sides of the internal structure that are able to withstand both the vertical and horizontal loads on the car.

Pirelli’s Run Flat technology is available on P Zero, Cinturato, Scorpion and Scorpion Winter, Winter Sottozero 3 and Winter Sottozero Serie II. Consequently, the range is able to cover 97% of fitments in 18-inch size or higher, with 24 exclusive product codes: which are sizes that no other tire manufacturer sells. Pirelli is the leader in the Run Flat sector, both when it comes to summer and all-season tires as well as winter.

Run Flat technology responds to the demands of prestige and premium car manufacturers for a level of personalization precisely tailored to the technical characteristics of their vehicles. Throughout the development process, which takes two or three years, Pirelli’s engineers work hand in hand with their counterparts at each manufacturer to create specific tires that are distinguished by a special marking on the sidewall. For each manufacturer, there is a bespoke tire – which is at the very heart of Pirelli’s perfect fit strategy.

Pirelli Celebrates 63rd Annual Porsche Parade

PIRELLI CELEBRATES THE 63RD ANNUAL PORSCHE PARADE

AND ITS LONG STANDING COMMITMENT TO PORSCHE CLUB OF AMERICA
Pirelli is proud to continue supporting the Porsche Club of America following the PCA Werks Reunion in Amelia Island earlier this year. Now, Pirelli has headed to the historic Porsche Parade in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. As part of its sponsorship with PCA, Pirelli kicked off festivities by hosting the Pirelli Welcome Dinner last night at the Hidden Lakes Golf Course, which is the most attended event during the weeklong program from July 8-14.

Pirelli, the world leader in the prestige tire category, develops and produces bespoke tires for both classic and contemporary Porsches: the state of the art P Zero and P Zero Trofeo tire cover the most performance oriented, while Pirelli’s Collezione in vintage sizes covers the needs of classic Porsches.

And these are the very tires that will star on the Pirelli stand at the Porsche Parade. Porsche Club members will be able to rely on the support of Pirelli technicians, who will be on hand all day to supply in-depth advice and information about Pirelli products available in America.

“Pirelli’s involvement with this historic Porsche Parade event in the US speaks volumes to our appreciation for the Porsche marque and Porsche Club of America, the biggest Porsche club in the world,” said Marco Crola, CEO of Pirelli Tire North America. “This is a natural extension of our commitment at the OE level, where we have worked tirelessly with Porsche over the years to create special N marked tires (263 homologations in fact), tailor-made specifically to be the perfect fit for Porsche vehicles. Therefore supporting PCA is paramount for us, given we share the same enthusiasm for the world’s finest automobile design and experiences as PCA’s member base. It will be great to connect even further with this community through our activities here and communicate our latest offering, from Pirelli Collezione through to P Zero and Trofeo R tires,” Crola added.

Porsche Parade is Porsche Club of America’s signature annual event, hosting its club members from all over North America for an ‘extravaganza’ of activities and competitive events (such as the Parade Concours D’Elegance), including seminars, tours and social gatherings– all aimed at socializing and enjoying Porsches.

This year’s Porsche Parade is being held at Tan-Tar-A resort in the idyllic Lake of the Ozarks, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world and the largest in the US. For more information on the Porsche Parade visit Pirelli or the official Porsche Parade website.

Paris FW x Haute Couture

During Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture, on Tuesday, July 3,

Maison des Centraliens has hosted three young designers with their Fall- Winter Collections 2018-2019:

 

ABE by Ariane Chaumeil Jewelry  “Miroir”

There is magic and mystery in a mirror : the reflexion of who looks into it is real, but reversed.  Since we gaze at ourselves, all fantasies become possible and brings us back to face each other, and to what the world has to face. As a two-way mirror, you can see without being seen. Step through and find out with this collection, and the part of your soul using your imagination, whether it is dark or whether radiant…

The fall winter collection of the ABE by Ariane Chaumeil house, whose crafting remains done with the blowtorch glass, becomes richer with a new proposition: the metal paste making. Sculpted and cast, the metal paste is modelled, sanded, fired at high temperature, brushed and rubbed with a burnisher and polished several times in order to get pieces of golden and white bronze, and of pure copper, with a shiny, ancient rendering.

 

A couture collection by  designer Armine Ohanyan

A couture collection made in France, entirely handmade, intimately inspired by nature, showing the natural elements in all their forms. Ice, crystallization, rain, wind, dew and roots. Crystallized in these surroundings, the Human Being becomes Nature. The Nature is everlasting, nothing can stop it. It is the true beauty, perfection. For depicting this cycle of evolution, Armine Ohanyan uses the new technologies such as 3D printing or materials crafting, which play an important role in her creation process. Her art investigations never end, like the movement that she shows in its different forms and their ranges of colours and materials. Her creations are futuristic, modern, with a wide beauty touch.

 

Baroqco Jewelry

Designers Imelda and Eduardo aka Baroqco are citizens of the world . Their roots are from Dutch Chinese Indonesian and Portuguese descent, and this diversity is what provides foundation that leads to the inspiration and creation. BaroQco comes from Baroque, an era of change from simplicity to lively and exuberant detail. BaroQco stands alone with its unique grandeur and ability to surprise and to achieve a sense of awe. Imelda and Eduardo started to create jewelry as they were looking for a tiara or crown for their wedding day. At that time there were not a lot of options, so they decided to create their own tiara which lead others to ask whether they could also make necklaces and earrings.

« As we embrace the impressionism, we strive not only for the outer but especially for the inner-beauty. In our creations we want to push boundaries of artistic techniques. And therefore the BaroQco is a book without an End. »

The materials are opal ,gold and Swarovski and all the metalwork are nickel free, the usage of non toxic and – hazardous for plating makes the jewelry more ecofriendly.

Queen Naija New Single

Photo Credit: Andrew Fennell
Download / Stream Karma HERE

Breakout artist Queen Naija returns with Karma. Moving on from the post break-up revenge fantasies of her first single, Medicine, Queen takes comfort in the concept of karma and examines her own insecurities, emerging with newfound strength in a soulful track that artfully fuses elements of jazz and hip hop. Karma is available for download and streaming HERE.

“Be confident, but not prideful,” says Queen Naija. “We all fall, and if you are too high up, chances are you may never recover from the fall.”

The 22-year-old Detroit native began singing in church at age three and writing her own songs in third grade, but her focus shifted when she and her former husband found fame online with their popular YouTube channel. When their marriage fell apart last year, Queen returned to her lifelong passion and penned a powerfully unapologetic song detailing her side of the story.
Premiering just hours before midnight on New Year’s Eve, Medicine was an instant smash. Within three weeks, it debuted at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 a remarkable accomplishment for an unsigned artist. Its success took Queen by surprise.

“I wasn’t even thinking about trying to get the song on the radio or anything,” Queen recalls. “I mostly did it because I knew people wanted to know what was going on with me and my ex, and I wanted to tell them myself why I wasn’t with him anymore.”

“With its hip-hop infused beat, silky, lip-glossed vocals and Instagram caption-ready lyrics, the song checked all the boxes for chart success,” observed Billboard. Over a simmering R&B groove, Queen flips the narrative From putting you on [do not] disturb, to FaceTiming a Tinder feed of other dudes, Queen imagines the actions of a bolder, empowered alter ego, a 2018 variation on Beyonce’s If I Were A Boy.

Spotify streams of Medicine have surpassed 13 million, radio spins on Pandora are nearing 20 million and views of the official video now exceed 40 million. Queen has been greeted by throngs of fans, screaming and singing along to Medicine, at in-person appearances.
She says, “To me, Medicine felt like a typical song from my own experience, but it turns out that a lot of other people have had this kind of experience as well. Girls tell me they play it in their car when they’re trying to get over a breakup, or they got done wrong by their man.
As she gears up for the release of her debut EP, Queen is channeling more of that real-life emotion into each song. “For me, it’s about changing people’s perspectives and letting them know they’re not alone in whatever they’re going through,” she explains. “I want to make music that captures people, that gets into your soul, the kind of songs you need to keep playing over and over.

PIRELLI AT 2018 PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB

PIRELLI CELEBRATES RECORDS AND VICTORIES ON BOTH FOUR AND TWO WHEELS

AT 2018 PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB

New Acura and Bentley records and the third best time in history by Simone Faggioli all achieved with Pirelli tires

June 28th2018ThePikes Peak International Hill Climb is one of the most esteemed motorsports events of the year. And as a leader in motorsports on both two and four wheels, Pirelli was of course present at this year’s event over the weekend, achieving success in both fields in the unique race up Pikes Peak hill in Colorado, which is the highest summit in the Southern front of the Rocky Mountains.

Rhys Millen(Bentley) set a new Pikes Peak SUV record time of 10:49.902 in the 2018 Bentley Bentayga, equipped withPirelli P Zero™road tires.

On Pirelli P Zero slick tiresAcuraachieved three new course records and three podium finishes as follows:

·PPC-Pikes Peak Open Class CourseRecordby Peter Cunningham in a 2018 Acura TLX GT: 9:27.352

·Hybrid Powertrain Course Recordby James Robinson in a 2017 Acura NSX: 10:02.448

·Front Wheel Drive Course Recordby Nick Robinson in a 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec: 10:48.094

The same P Zero slicks were used bySimone Faggiolito set a time of 8:37.230 in a 2018 Norma M20 SF PKP: this was the third best time ever with a combustion engine recorded in the history of the Pikes Peak event, which has been running since 1916. And this was the top overall time with a combustion engine at this year’s event.

Pikes Peak, the second oldest annual motorsports race in the United States, was also the occasion for Pirelli to present its completely renovatedPirelli Hillclimbrubber range. It includes a wet tire, a Cinturato, and three slick tires: Ultrasoft, Supersoft and Soft. And this really was the ultimate combination used by drivers utilizing Pirelli to take home their respective successes at Pikes Peak.

Also known as the ‘The Race to the Clouds’, Pikes Peak represents a very important technical challenge for the tires above all.

“The biggest challenge tires face is from the vast temperature changes participants experience during the course of the race at different elevations. At the start of the race, the average temperature is 77 degrees Fahrenheit, while at the top of the hillclimb it can be 32 degrees Fahrenheit or it can snow at the highest point (14,110 feet), like it did for the race on Sunday. Another difficulty comes from the bumpy asphalt, in part due to the tracks created from clearing the snow which can ruin it. Therefore it is necessary to develop a tire which guarantees grip both in high temperatures at the start and in lower temperatures as the drivers ascend the hill; as well as maximum driveability on uneven asphalt. And, considering the new records and success this year, this is exactly what Pirelli tires have done,” said Terenzio Testoni, Pirelli Off road Activity Manager.

Moving onto two wheels, Pirelli also attained the following results: a clean sweep of the Heavyweight Class on Pirelli tires, withCarlin Dunne(Ducati) in first place, thenRennie Scaysbrook(KTM) andCodie Vahsholtz(Ducati) in second and third on the podium respectively; plus a new Middleweight Class record by Chris Fillmore (KTM), who smashed the record by more than 30 seconds with a time of 10:04.38 to take the title on the iconicPirelli DIABLO™ SUPERBIKE(SC1 front, SC0 rear) tires.
