Ultragrrrl's apartment, 4th of July 2007 (CRED)
......Stolen Transmission started IN MY BEDROOM as an indie label putting out hand made cds of bands that me and Rob believed in. We werent funded back then, and we were really happy. We did everything because of how much we loved music. Now that I've had my experience with Island/Def Jam, I know how to actually run a label, and I helped set up 9 amazing releases from Permanent ME, the Oohlas, Monty Are I, Bright Light Fever, the Horrors, Schoolyard Heroes, PlayRadioPlay!, Innerpartysystem, and the Photo Atlas. I'm so fucking proud that my label went from me and a bunch of interns sitting in my bedroom smoking and watching degrassi and eating guac i had just made to me sitting in meetings once a week with JayZ and now it'll just go back to being run from my apartment again. We plan on continuing with Stolen Transmission and are really excited to be returning to our indie roots.Via Idolator: "Island Def Jam Lays Off Staff, Cuts Ultragrrrl's Label Loose"
I'm also glad to say that the Stolen Transmission party is coincedently starting in a new venue tonight! That means no more Angels & Kings, and now we're going to the Hanger Bar (3rd street btw B and C), which is also more aligned with the vibe the party hand when the label was run out of my bedroom. This is all very very exciting for me........ [Ultragrrl on Absolute Punk]
I've known about tonight's (Nov 11, 2007) Jay-Z show at Hammerstein Ballroom since the day it went on sale, but it was sold out by the time I realized it was happening. The same thing happened when Jay-Z played Roseland last year, and when he played Radio City before that - both were sold out before I knew about them. Then yesterday I noticed yet another show - Sunday November 13th at the Apollo Theater - apparently just added, but also sold out by the time I saw it. Hopefully one day I'll be able to post about Jay-Z tickets going on sale in advance, but for now all I got for you is Craigslist.
Jay-Z also performed a show at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn in late October - a taping for VH1's "Storyteller" series (which debuted on November 8th). Photo above. Video, and more info, below. American Gangster is out now.
