If you missed Monday night’s VH1 You Oughta Know In Concert livestream, you’ll have a chance to catch the highlights of the program next Thursday, November 21, at 9/8C. Between now and then, we’ll be rolling out clips from this evening’s AMAZING show here on VH1 Music, including the moment that has the Internet salivating earlier this week: The moment when Lorde and HAIM teamed up to cover Sheryl Crow‘s AAA classic, “Strong Enough.”
It’s been a hot minute since we last heard from Lily Allen, the British songstress who has built her reputation on her unwillingness to play by the rules that govern today’s celebrity industrial complex. Her last album, 2009′s It’s Not Me, It’s You, gleefully genre-hopped from electro to country & western to pure pop, all the while making sly, sarcastic statements about the fetishization of celebrity (“The Fear”), boys who don’t believe in the concept of equality in the bedroom (“Not Fair”), and her issues with the politics of George Bush (“F*** You”). Allen took the last few years off to start a family, but she clearly kept one eye on the way popular culture was evolving (devolving?) while raising her two daughters. Her first statement as a new mom, “Hard Out Here,” dropped yesterday and immediately made waves online thanks to its timely critiques of the likes of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. However, while we applaud the underlying sentiment of the song, we can’t help but feel like the final video treatment ends up betraying the song’s message.
If you missed last night’s livestream of the very first You Oughta Know In Concert, don’t fret. The show will be premiering on VH1 on Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C, and in between now and then, we’ll be releasing videos and web exclusives from the show as soon as we can. Case in point: Last night’s show closed with an AMAZING set from The Lumineers, who debuted their new track from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, “Gale Song.”
Are you getting tired of being told to throw your hands up in the air? Lorde is! (So there.) The 17-year-old New Zealander was one of the featured performers at tonight’s You Oughta Know In Concert special, which livestreamed on VH1.com earlier and will be airing on VH1 on Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C.
VH1′s first ever You Oughta Know In Concert special will be livestreaming from New York City’s legendary Roseland Ballroom tonight starting at 8PM/7C. Featuring live performances from the likes of Lorde, The Lumineers, HAIM, Johnnyswim and more, the concert will also air on VH1 on Thursday, November 21.
The Lumineers are one of the featured acts that will be performing live at the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert, which will be livestreaming exclusively on VH1.com TONIGHT, Monday, November 11, and then airing again in glorious HD on VH1 on Thursday, November 21. This Denver-based trio is made up of Wesley Schultz (lead vox, guitar), Jeremiah Fraites (drums, percussion), and Neyla Pekarek (cello, vox), and joined the VH1 You Oughta Know family back in July of 2012.
Today, fellow headbangers, is National Metal Day! We’ve already thrown our devil horns, revisited America’s Hard 100, and cringed along with the 11 most un-metal metal songs of all-time. Now, however, we ask the eternal question: Who’s got the more metal shriek, Axl Rose or … a screaming goat?!?
HAIM is one of the featured acts that will be performing live at the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert, which will be livestreaming exclusively on VH1.com TONIGHT, Monday, November 11, and then airing again in glorious HD on VH1 on Thursday, November 21. This California trio is made up of sisters Este (bass, vox), Danielle (lead vox, lead guitar) and Alana (keys, vox, rhythm guitar), and just released their debut LP Days Are Gone to widespread critical acclaim and a Top 10 chart debut.
Tomorrow, 11/11, marks another anniversary of National Metal Day, a celebratory event when hard rock and metal fans the world over turn their fandom up to 11.
