One of our favorite things to do during the Summer is to check out the Free Music Spotlight Series at the “5 Towers” on Universal Studios Hollywood CityWalk every Summer! We’ve seen everyone from Justin Bieber to god knows how many amazing artists there before they became huge! “5 Towers” is the place to see so many amazing artists perform before they strike it big!
This past Friday the FREE LIVE CONCERT series kicked off with A&M/Octone recording artist KAT GRAHAM, from the hit series, “The Vampire Diaries”! We had a blast and she torn down the house performing all her awesome dance hits! The crowd went nuts! You can check out some of the performance in the video below.
Making a special guest appearance to introduce the multi-talented performer, is none other than Hollywood’s most noted gossip columnist, leading blogger, and television personality, PEREZ HILTON, who is championing Kat’s rising star power to the top of charts and beyond!
If you’re looking for something fun to do in SoCal this weekend the fun continues this weekend with Spotlight Fridays starting Friday, June 15th, with performances by actress and singer Katelyn Tarver and the band Parachute. Tarver is known as an actress on “Big Time Rush” and will sings hits from her new album, A Little More Free. Parachute’s The Way It Was, features the band’s patented lush melodies accompanied by a production that is intricate yet sparing. Hits include the first single, ‘Something to Believe In (Jeremiah)’ and ‘Kiss Me Slowly,’ the latter of which Parachute’s Will Anderson co-wrote with Lady Antebellum’s Grammy-winning Record and Song of the Year duo of Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood.
Summer sizzles at the “5 Towers” on Universal CityWalk. These shows also showcase dueling DJs and dance troupes stepping and beat thumping to the latest mash-ups of Hip Hop, Top 40 and classic jams synched to a pulsing, rhythm-catching light show. The DJ’s last Friday were awesome and we danced the night away! Check out some video I got of the DJ’s below.
