Train And Crush Management Will Be Honored At T.J. Martell Foundation’s 13th Annual Family Day

On April 22nd New York’s Roseland Ballroom will host The T.J. Martell Foundation’s 13th Annual Family Day in honor of Train. As well as performing an intimate acoustic set, multiple Grammy Award winning band Train will be acknowledged for their charity work. And there’s even more cause for a Train celebration, as their new album, California 37, will be released on April 17th, mere days before the iconic event. Train front man Pat Monahan said of the occasion, “Train is honored to be part of T.J. Martell’s Family Day. The T.J. Martell Foundation has been doing incredible work in the medical community and we are inspired by their dedication. We hope to make this the best Family Day ever.” Joining Train on the day will be a Cobra Starship, who will put on a special DJ set, and Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande who will also play live. And along with Train, Crush Management (who represent both Train and Cobra Starship) will also be honored. The event will raise money for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research and tickets can be purchased via TJMartellFoundation.org or by calling Foundation at (646) 841-1394. We suggest you try to get involved — it’s a great opportunity to contribute to a good cause while seeing your favorite musicians perform!

Tuned In: Robyn Brings The Disco To Leno

Dancehall queen Robyn appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night in one of her signature boldly-colored get ups, singing “Call Your Girlfriend” from her album Body Talk (which she performed one night earlier at the O Music Awards). True to form, Robyn delivered a high energy performance complete with the amazingly infectious dance moves that she’s become famous for. With Robyn’s somewhat contradictory style—upbeat electro tunes paired with sad and darkly melancholic lyrics—”Call Your Girlfriend” is the perfect song for the broken-hearted; not only do the words let you wallow, the beats will have you dancing your blues away, literally.

Tuned In: Cobra Starship Get The Right Feel On Leno

Monday may have been Legacy Night on NBC’s late shows, with country legend Glen Campbell celebrating his 100th birthday on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and the influential psych-pop Zombies playing Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but yesterday was another story entirely. Much-buzzed indie-rockers Girls played Fallon, and Cobra Starship led the night with an on-point rendition of the trancey single, featuring Sabi, that they also performed during the 2011 VMAs pre-show. The project of Midtown frontman Gabe Saporta, Cobra Starship once seemed an ironic joke that wasn’t quite funny (thanks in part to an inauspicious Snakes On A Plane tie-in of a debut single). In the ensuing years, though?not least last night?the band has more than made clear how serious they are, and actually have been pretty forward-thinking in the process. Fun, not funny. Got it, Cobra Starship.
