The Tumblr House presented by America, pt. 2

Friday night kicked off with a high-energy set from Danish breakout artist, , followed by young Chicago MC, Vic Mensa, and TDE sizzler, SZA. A$AP Ferg and members of the Mob shocked the crowd, in the best way, with a surprise performance. Dam Funk capped it off with a late night, keytar-infused dance party.

The Tumblr House presented by America, pt. 1

Last Friday was a blast. The sun shone down on a beautiful crowd, and five great bands delivered an array of stunning performances. Some even stuck around to hang out in our backyard. Then, nighttime came…

Thanks to all the artists who performed, to filtermagazine for hosting us, to Shea Serrano for the dope signage, and to laurajunekirsch for the amazing photos.

Spin Showcase // House of Vans // Deap Vally
Although guitarist Lindsay Troy and drummer Julie Edwards met at a crochet class in Los Angeles, the garage rock duo is far from anything your grandma listens to (Side Note: if your grandma does listen to this, we want to be her best friend). With only one album on the shelves since they formed in 2011 (Sistronix), Deap Vally is already causing a raucous in the best way possible. Supporting rockers like The Vaccines and superstars Muse, their live show was nothing short of expectations.

Spin Showcase // House of Vans // Pusha T
Commanding rap tracks, like the one featured on label mate Kanye West’s “Runaway”, Pusha T was ready to make himself stand out from the rest. And who better to help him out than West himself? Last year’s release of his most recent album My Name Is My Name is chock full of collabs from Chris Brown and Kendrick Lamar to Pharrell and Kelly Rowland. The best part? Pusha shows his chameleon-like versatility, being able to make any track or collab stamped with his signature sound. We saw it for ourselves on the SWSW Spin stage this week.
