Glitzburgh Grooves: Local Artist Kenny Sukitch Releases EP on iTunes

16 Feb

 

I first saw Kenny Sukitch as part of the local band 13AM as they opened for the band Sleeperstar at Diesel Club Lounge. Impressed with the ability of this young group, I took notice.

Recently, I found out that one of the members, Kenny Sukitch, has released a solo LP of 4 songs on iTunes that is available for purchase at $3.99.

These alternative rock songs have twinges of pop, new-punk, ska while also maintaining a singer-songwriter vibe that will be sure to appeal to the masses.

Sure, he may be young, but I think Kenny Sukitch is one to watch. He’s already generating some buzz around Pittsburgh and for good reason. Be sure to purchase his EP – let’s all support local artists!

Check out my review of the “In My Mind” EP, below.

“Beautiful Nightmare” – From what I heard, Beautiful Nightmare may perhaps be my favorite song of the bunch. Unique and melodic, it is reminiscent of Ben Lee, who has a huge cult following. With some tweaks, I could see this track on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy!  

 

“Making a Memory” – This sounds like a fun, commercial song — catchy and with those ska/punk twinges I spoke of before. To me, it is reminiscent of Sum 41…which, can be good or bad.

 

 

“The World is Burning Down” – I liked this one, too. Something about it is very appealing and catchy. Something about the background beat reminds me of when One Republic collaborated with Timbaland. And that is a very good thing. 

 

 

“Lasting” – I have mixed feelings about this track. It was good – but it reminded me too much of Sugar Ray or Reel Big Fish…again, this could be good or bad depending on whether or not you’re a fan, but, it is catchy, albeit feeling a little dated. 

 

 

Overall consensus? There’s some good stuff here. Obviously, Sukitch has drive and talent. He’s only 17 years old and so has time to really hone in on his craft. A heartbreak or two down the road, and he’ll have some great emotion to refer to. I’d say that we’ll see good things from him in the future. For now, be sure to support him, as I said, by checking out his ALL of his music on ReverbNation and Facebook,  and by purchasing his newest EP album, “Of the Mind” on iTunes!  (Worth noting? I actually checked out some of his previous songs such as R_CKT-SH_P and Letters, and was also pleasantly surprised by them…especially Letters!) This young man has great potential — and a great Facebook page. Check it out!

Happy Jersday! New Season Premieres Tonight…Jersey does South Africa…AND Deena Making an Appearance in Pittsburgh!

5 Jan

Happy Jersday!

 

Season 5 of MTV’s Jersey Shore premieres tonight.

Twitter is abuzz with anticipation of the wildly popular reality show returning for its newest season.

In other Jersey Shore news, the next season is reportedly going to be filmed in SOUTH AFRICA!

Also — cast member Deena Nicole will be making an appearance here in Pittsburgh at World of Wheels on Saturday, January 28th, 2012 from 1pm-5pm.

The World of Wheels will be held at the David L. Lawrence Center in Pittsburgh on January 27-29.

Hopefully, Deena is on her best behavior….

Psssttt…rumor has it that Snooki may be getting her own spin-off. That being said, other Jersey Shore cast members have also been rumored to be involved in spinoff projects; but none yet have ever come to fruition.

Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel Both Getting Divorced

5 Jan

I always thought that there was a slight chance that Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel were the same person, or, at the very least, separated from birth.

And then, they both announced divorces from their respective husbands (Russell Brand and  Ben Gibbard) within days of one another.

Conspiracy?

(All kidding aside – they do look A LOT alike. LOL.)

For your (mind-boggling) viewing pleasure:

That all being said, we’re sorry to hear about the misfortunes of these unlucky-in-love ladies. Seems to be so hard to keep a Hollywood marriage alive….

Candlelight Prayer Vigil for Missing Bridgeville Man Jimmy Slack

22 Dec

Tonight, December 22nd, 2011, a Prayer Vigil will be held at Bethany Presbyterian Church in Bridgeville, PA. The service will be an outdoors candlelight vigil, weather permitting, and will honor Jimmy Slack, age 25, who has been missing for 2 weeks.

Slack is from Bridgeville, and went missing on December 6th, 2011 after a String Cheese Incident concert at Stage AE in the North Shore.

The prayer vigil is to gather together to pray for his safe return, to offer the family support, and to keep hope and faith present in a difficult situation.

We hope that he will be found safe and sound, and that he will be home as soon as possible.

This vigil is open to the public. More information can be found at the links below:

Glitzburgh Glam: Prada Headphones – Listen to Music in Style!

22 Dec

If you have $595 to spare, you can listen to music in style with the new Prada headphones.

It isn’t a new concept – some of the Beats by Dr. Dre are pretty stylish (see: Lady Gaga Heartbeats) and we accessorize and brand everything else (Michael Kors iPhone wallets, Juicy Couture and Kate Spade phone cases, even diamond-encrusted contacts, and Dolce & Gabanna eyeglasses) so why NOT rock some designer headphones?

What do you think — are they worth the money or just a waste?

So, what does the Mother Monster have in store for you as she plays Santa this year?

On Christmas, Gaga will “leak” a previously unreleased song off of her wildly popular hit album, Born This Way.

The track — a gift to all of her fans — was written and recorded on her tour bus, and will be released, unedited, in its entirety, and in its rawest form.

So, get ready, Gaga fans — just another reason to count down to Christmas morning!

Steelers Super Bowl Shirts That Could Have Been are Now Being Used for a Good Cause

22 Dec

Just saw this on the 96.1 KISS website. These are the Steelers “Super Bowl Champion” shirts that “would have been” had we won the Super Bowl last year. However, fret not — they’re going to be used for a good cause. These shirts will be sent to countries in need by an organization called World Vision. That’s the way to spread the holiday spirit! And, that’s OK, let’s just win THIS year so we can have even cooler shirts 😉   GO STEELERS!
