Red Bull SoundSelect announces 30 Days in Chicago concert series

Red Bull SoundSelect is known for its monthly concerts highlighting both new and established artists, but in November it will host a 30 day concert series in Chicago.

I’m beyond excited about this. It like having an extra long music festival in the colder months.

The lineup is incredible too. Check out the lineup here, but some of my favorite include Khalid, Kehlani and Smino.

You need to be a Red Bull SoundSelect member to buy tickets, and according the Chicago Tribune tickets will be around $15 and will be a limit of 2 tickets per member.

Who are you most excited to see? While considering what shows you are buying tickets for, check out the this playlist for 30 Days In Chicago made by Red Bull.

The significant “Old Taylors” from the “Look What You Made Me Do” Video that relate to Calvin Harris

In Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” video, the major moment is the when the old Taylors are climbing to the top. While many of the Taylors represent different eras of her career, some of the Taylor are significant moments from her relationship with Calvin Harris.

One of the Taylor wears her outfit from the 2015 Billboard awards. This was a significant moment in their relationship because this was the first time they were at an entertainment event together as a couple. Calvin also kissed her when she won an award. This is considered the confirmation of their relationship.

The old Taylor from 2015 IHeartRadio Award was also a major moment for Calvin and Taylor. When winning the award for best tour, she thanks her boyfriend Adam, Calvin Harris’ real name.

While some can argue that she just happened to have these outfits in her closet still, Taylor has shown that nothing is coincidence and may be a dig at Calvin.

They. releases video for “Deep End”

They. released a video for the song “Deep End” off their debut album “Nu Religion: Hyena.”  The track, which was originally released in 2016 on SoundCloud, is about giving in to all your vices for the weekend, including women and drinking. The video fits in perfectly with the moodiness that They.’s other visuals have had, and I found it interesting that the wolf was also the woman from the beginning of the video and they eventually drive away from her.

“Deep End” is my favorite They. song so I’m excited it’s a single. The mix of keyboard and trap beats with R&B and rap is the perfect concotion that best represents They.’s sound.
