“After several long years, KUT U UP has decided to get their shit together and reunite. Applauded for their innate ability to cause havoc, concern authorities, and leave destruction and laughter in their wake, they’ve been busy writing new songs, with new concepts, themes and ideas, and now they need to record.
KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/clintweiler/kut-u-up-reunite-and-record
The official reformation of the band was marked by their reunion performance in San Diego on July 21. This momentous occasion was used to announce the launch of this Kickstarter campaign, thus opening a new chapter in the band’s ever-evolving story.”
As the holidays approach and the spirit of giving swells, Boulder, Colorado-based national nonprofit Conscious Alliance announces the 7th Annual Holiday Meal Drive this Thanksgiving Season, taking place November 18-24, 2010. Conscious Alliance has been hosting food drives at concerts and sporting events since 2002, collecting and distributing nearly 1,000,000 pounds of food to impoverished Native American Reservations.
Last year, Conscious Alliance’s Holiday Meal Drive collected enough food to distribute over 1,500 holiday meal boxes to Native American households at Lame Deer Reservation in Montana, Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, and Houma Reservation in Louisiana. This holiday season, Conscious Alliance hopes to feed more than 10,000 families through donations and it’s easy to help. A donation of $15 or more will provide dinner for a family this holiday season and only $30 or more will feed an individual for an entire week. For more information or to make a donation, visit www.consciousalliance.org/donate.
Conscious Alliance concentrates much of their efforts on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where the average median income is under $3,000. Many families in this region struggle to provide food and heat for their households. Native American youth are particularly affected by the poverty in Pine Ridge, where one-fourth of the population is under the age of eighteen. Not forgetting the children in these impoverished families, Conscious Alliance will host a toy drive too – this year at the November 7, 2010 Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! performance at Broomfield, Colorado’s 1STBANK Center.
All toys collected at Kia Motors Presents Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!: There’s A Party In My City! will benefit the youth of this area and be distributed during the holiday season. It is recommended all donations at Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! are a new stuffed animal valued at $10 or more.

Can you imagine playing lead guitar for front man Roger Daltrey of The Who in front of a live, screaming and standing-room-only crowd at an iconic rock venue? For many people, this is a lifelong fantasy; at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp, it becomes reality. From January 12th to 17th in New York City, rock enthusiasts and amateur musicians from all walks of life will have the opportunity to interact with, learn from, jam with and perform alongside their idols as part of the rock camp that became the centerpiece of VH1 Classic’s new series – also called Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp – which debuted October 16th as the most watched series premiere in network history.
Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp New York City will feature several of the rock star counselors from the Mark Burnett produced VH1 Classic show, which, according to the New York Post’s Michael Starr, “far exceeded VH1’s expectations.” With the help of special guest counselor Roger Daltrey, one of the most iconic lead singers in rock ‘n’ roll history, rock greats the likes of Grammy Award-winning mega-producer Phil Ramone, Tommy James, Simon Kirke of Bad Company, Rudy Sarzo of Quiet Riot, Kip Winger of Winger, renowned singer/songwriter Mark Hudson, and many others, will be transforming campers from rock hobbyists into arena maestros.
Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp was founded by David Fishof in 1997 as the ultimate music experience for the amateur or aficionado, pairing music lovers of all levels together with rock icons for a first-hand immersion in the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. Camp attendees move from spectator to band member, sharing the stage – and limelight – with rock icons for an once-in-a-lifetime experience. More details available at www.rockcamp.com.
