1More Speakers

1More shakes up the portable speaker market with bundled units.‘ – 360 MAGAZINE

By Vaughn Lowery


If you are in the marketplace for a portable Bluetooth speaker, then 1More is your choice. With impeccable sound quality and the ability to hang them around your student residence or apartment, this speaker system is the bang for your buck. You can purchase one speaker for $99 or 2 for $149.

If you listen to songs with heavy bass, then look no farther. The bundled, packaged audio system at high levels will last for approximately 4 to 6 hours before having to recharge. It’s like having a Bose and JBL Bluetooth system combined. Each loudspeaker has a tweeter and a subwoofer so when you pair the two, the sound quality is reminiscent of a small home theater, especially if you hang them diagonally apart with one being higher than the other.

Unquestionably one of the best in the industry, they store easily in small bags when you travel. Great for outdoor BBQs and you can hang on your bike or scooter so you can enjoy music while on a drive to the beach.

They charge relatively fast and are exceedingly durable. We found out this first-hand as the speakers would hop off our glass table or edge of a kitchen countertop. If they descend, the face will sometimes pop off in order to absorb impact. We recommend you hang speaks on a bait/hook or a doorknob to keep them intact.

By far one of the best products for people-on-the-move, attending college and/or residing in small urban spaces.

Kesha Joins The Struts on Single “Body Talks”

Interscope rock band The Struts have partnered with GRAMMY nominated pop superstar Kesha to release a bold, enhanced version of their hit single “Body Talks”.  A long-time fan of the band, Kesha joined The Struts in a Los Angeles studio to re-record the tune lending her vocals and unique style to the song.  “Body Talks ft. Kesha” is available today, August 29, via all digital retailers.

“I’m so excited to release ‘Body Talks’ with The Struts!!! 🌈🤘🌈 ,” says Kesha. “They are one of my favorite current bands keeping the spirit of classic rock and roll alive with their wild energy and sexy style.  It’s a song made for my favorite activity: boogieing.”

Directed by Lagan Sebert the video for “Body Talks ft. Kesha” also premieres today – watch the video HERE. Shot in St. Louis, where both artists were making a tour stop, the clip showcases the rock n’ roll swagger of The Struts frontman Luke Spiller and Kesha.  Sebert also directed Kesha’s recently released Apple Music documentary “Rainbow – The Film.”

The Struts recently wrapped a tour supporting the Foo Fighters, which included performances at Madison Square Garden, Wrigley Field and Fenway Park,  and are gearing up for a fall headline tour. The Body Talks Tour kicks off September 21st at St. Andrew’s in Detroit with shows already sold out in major markets. Tickets are on sale now. Visit thestruts.com for all tour dates and to purchase tickets.

In just a few years, The Struts have found themselves massively embraced by some of the greatest icons in rock-and-roll history. Along with opening for The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Guns N’ Roses, the U.K.-bred four-piece was hand-picked by Mötley Crüe to serve as the supporting act for their last-ever performances, while Dave Grohl praised them as the best band to ever open for Foo Fighters. Formed in Derby, England in 2012, The Struts are Luke Spiller (lead singer), Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums). The Struts are currently working on the highly anticipated follow up to their 2016 debut, Everybody Wants, which will be released on Interscope Records this fall.

Hard Rock Hotel Features Peter Max

The new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino opens in Atlantic City next Thursday, June 28 and along with it, a new Wentworth Gallery featuring iconic pop artist, Peter Max’s rock-and-roll works. Max is schedule for an appearance at the gallery himself on July 7.

Over his decades-long career, Peter Max has been connected to the world of rock through collaborations and friendships, painting portraits of famous rock icons, including The Beatles, Bono, Sting, Jimi Hendrix, Chrissie Hynde, Ringo Starr and many more. He’s been a 5-time official artist for The GRAMMYs and commissioned as the official artist for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 30th anniversary in 2015.

His love of rock and free expression also led him to play a large role in the history-making rock concert that helped end the Cold War, as the official artist and designer for the “Moscow Music Peace Festival”. The ground-breaking festival, known as the “Russian Woodstock,” had famous ’80’s glam metal rockers Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Ozzy Osbourne among others, all playing on the stage designed by Max.

These Peter Max hand-painted guitars will be available to purchase at the gallery:

About Peter Max

Acclaimed for his bold, cosmic art that captured the spirit of the ’60s and ’70s and for his colorful, expressionist paintings that he creates to this day including portraits and celebrity commissions, Max has been the official artist for six GRAMMY Awards, five Super Bowls, the NHL All-Star Game, the U.S. Winter Olympics, World Cup USA, the Indy 500, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, NBC’s ‘The Voice’ singing show and many other notable events in sports, global initiatives and music.

Peter Max captured the zeitgeist of the psychedelic ’60s youth movement with his cosmic paintings, posters, serigraphs and popular licensed products– GE art clocks, bed sheets, Wrangler clothing, stockings and high-top sneakers, among many others. Over his five-decades long career, with gallery and museum shows around the world, the now 80-year-old Max is an icon of pop art, neo-expressionism and is often called ‘America’s Painter Laureate.’

His portraits have honored U.S. Presidents, foreign dignitaries, rock stars and jazz musicians, movie stars and sports icons. Max’s impressive resume goes far beyond his world-famous bold, colorful artwork, as he is acknowledged for his global charity work – being an active environmentalist and defender of animal and human rights, and for helping to bring yoga to the United States by co-founding the Integral Yoga Institute with Swami Satchidinada.

All Time Low’s Third Show in Jakarta

“See you on August 15th, Jakarta! Tickets go on sale May 26th at 10am!” That’s what’s written on @AllTimeLow instagram account on Friday, 19th May 2017.

Yes, less than a month, All Time Low will return to Jakarta. If their concert on 15 August 2017 is counted, this means it’s the third times the band from Maryland, USA, visit Hustlers in Indonesia.

Indonesian Hustlers (All Time Low fans) are eager to see Jack and his friends act on stage after 4 years of waiting since the last time All Time Low’s show in Indonesia on 2013.

This is proven by when ticket sales for a special price that lasted one day on May 26, 2017 starting at 10:00 am were strucked by the enthusiasts of All Time Low in just 1 hour 30 Minutes. They were willing to queue at the ticket sales office in the area of ​​Kemang, South Jakarta since 05:00 am. Not only those who will watch All Time Low concert for the first time, but a lot of them have watched All Time Low live in Jakarta back in 2010 and 2013. In fact, the #HattrickATLJkt hashtag
has enlivened the realm of social media. The hashtags came up if All Time Low come for the third time.

All Time Low concert that has the title “The Young Renegades World Tour” is held in order to their latest album which was released on June 2, 2017 “Last Young Renegade”. This album is so different from the previous albums. In addition, according to Rockafella Entertainment, the promoter who bring All Time Low to Indonesia, All Time Low’s concert in 2017 will be different from their previous concerts. New concept of stage’s system, sound and light will be presented at ex Golf DrivingRange, Senayan, Jakarta where All Time Low’s concert will be held. New concepts for their concert itself has started when they amazed thousands of its audience at Eventim Apollo on March 10th.

Indonesia itself will become the opening country for All Time Low 2017 world tour in Asia, before they’ll continue to Singapore, Japan and Philippines.

The “crazy” attraction from the personnels on stage will certainly be a magic apart not only for their old fans but also their new fans.

Are you ready to be one of the witness for their “madness” on 15th August 2017 later?
‘Coz, there ain’t no party like All Time Low party!”
