    Panic! at the Disco’s shows in August – September 2007

    I love this season even more in hindsight because it’s nothing like the Pretty. Odd. era, yet nothing like the Fever era either. This whole year was basically an in-between phase (so it’s actually kind of nice that the second album got bumped to spring 2008 because each of the band’s phases fits neatly into its own year now... how considerate). 

    The shows at Atlanta and Summerfest earlier this year felt like the band ditched the Fever era, but hadn't decided on a new direction yet... so August was the first time that we really got a sense of where the guys were heading. 

    NEW SONGS YAY

    The band played their new cover of The Weight by The Band at shows this season and that stuck around for a long time... they even played it at shows during the Pretty. Odd. era. Spencer told the Toronto Sun in 2008 that “We knew we wanted to do a new cover song and for whatever reason we just watched The Last Waltz and wanted to cover that song. We love playing that song.”

    They also added rough versions of two new songs: Nine in the Afternoon and When the Day Met the Night. We had no idea what those songs were actually called, though... the most common names were Back to the Street(s) and Middle of Summer. (And I know those are just random names that fans gave the songs, but I’m still going to say “Middle of Summer” for the earliest version of WTDMTN because I loved it so so so much and really cemented that name in my mind... plus the early version is different anyways). 

    Ryan introduced Back to the Streets as “Nine in the Afternoon” at Decaydance Fest, so that info started spreading earlier on. Many fans initially thought the band was singing about “night in the afternoon,” which IS pretty cool... I’m kind of sad that wasn’t a song ha. There was also a decent amount of debate over the lyrics in the bridge for Middle of Summer. Some people thought it said “to this day they’re sipping tea” (or something similar) but I agreed with the “to this day they’re seventeen” idea so strongly that I still can’t properly hear the examples where Brendon is very clearly singing “to this day they’re sipping tea” lol. (although I LOVE those lyrics too. a lot. they just exist in an alternate reality). Here’s the same bit from Reading. A couple articles said that the song was called When The Moon Fell In Love With The Sun... so the info about that song was definitely less consistent.

    The band also started mixing Roxanne into Camisado after Virgin Fest. They had talked a lot about being tired of playing their same old songs by the end of the Fever era, so it was fun to watch them find ways to make their set feel different.

    VIRGIN FEST (August 5th)

    here are some pictures

    the Spin interview

    MTV often chopped up their interviews to use in different news segments, so here are two parts.

    some videos from the show

    P!ATD played on the second day of this 2-day festival in Baltimore. Here are a few highlights from reviews.

    This was the first time that the band played Nine in the Afternoon, Middle of Summer, and the new cover. Spencer said that he and Brendon messed up the new songs, so evidently those aren’t exactly what the earliest versions were meant to sound like... but it still sounded great for something they wrote within the past few weeks.

    the two new songs had a waaaaay better reception than It’s True Love. some people were still confused about why the new songs were obnoxiously happy, but even those types of comments were nowhere near as harsh.

    Ryan told the crowd that the band had eaten “like 300 crab cakes” and Brendon said he felt nasty from it. This blog post / interview is still up where Brendon said something similar.

    The band hadn’t started adding Roxanne to Camisado yet, but maybe that was fortunate since The Police headlined Virgin Fest and played that song themselves ha.

    I know it seems like the Pretty. Odd. era in 2008 must have come as a surprise since it was so different from the Fever era, but Virgin Fest in 2007 was actually the biggest shock for me. Everything after this point felt like it was building on the new direction that had been established.

    I don’t remember seeing better pictures of this moment, but a fan said Ryan got tp’ed:

    DECAYDANCE FEST (August 21 – 22)

    here are some pictures

    the band wasn’t at the August 19th show in Germany, but they were at the one in Paris on August 21st and the one in London the next day.

    a lot of the fan videos from these shows have sadly been deleted or made private... but here’s a playlist of some of the leftover stuff.

    one review said “Urie wore his talent lightly, but couldn't hide a truly extraordinary voice - Freddie Mercurylike in its effortless ability to switch from delicate falsetto to gritty rockout mode.” 

    Jon & Ryan were talking way more onstage now.

    Ryan’s habit of picking a few girls to stare at super intensely was still going strong haha. 

    People were lined up since sunrise and the doors didn’t open until that evening. Some fans said that part of the band was able to come outside... it sounded like Jon & Spencer were walking to a shop and Ryan offered soup to fans.

    this interview happened on August 22nd and the same soup story was mentioned.

    here’s a random blog post that’s still up.

    the band went up the Eiffel Tower one night. It sounded like other Decaydance band members might have gone too, but it was hard to pick out which stories were definitely true because some fans were overly excited that the guys were all hanging out (cue the fanfiction).

    I heard that one of the shows was filmed for a dvd, but idk what happened with that.

    THE KERRANG AWARDS (August 23)

    here are some pictures.

    Fans could vote earlier this year for these awards. P!ATD was nominated for Best International Band but lost to My Chemical Romance.

    here’s an interview from the Kerrang video podcast.

    here’s a fan video from afterwards.

    Kerrang’s coverage of the event listed this in their timeline: “6:53 pm – Panic! at the Disco arrive, minus Ryan Ross, who’s ill with tonsillitis. Will drummer Spencer Smith hit anyone if the band doesn’t win? ‘No no, of course not,’ he splutters. ‘We may throw over a table... if no one’s in the way.’ Rock and fucking roll!”

    The band was also mentioned in Kerrang’s article about the aftershow: “first to the bar was one of the young scamps from Panic! at the Disco. Four-stringer Jon Walker...”

    READING & LEEDS (August 25 – 26)

    here are the pictures I’ve posted so far

    BBC had the 2007 Reading show up on their site, so that became a popular file to pass around. You can still watch it here! (Also: it looks like someone recently put that file on youtube as “Leeds,” but it’s definitely Reading because Ryan doesn’t have his jacket).

    Some of the better quality fan videos from Leeds: one, two, three.

    here’s an aerial view of Leeds and Reading.

    here’s BBC’s interview and NME’s interview from Reading.

    Brendon was interviewed after the Leeds show (and omg he had changed/grown so much in just half a year... it also felt like he’d been put through media training or something haha).

    some videos from the Reading signing booth: one, two, three.

    some videos from the Leeds signing: one, two, three 

    My main takeaway from NME’s blog was that Spencer liked couscous and Ryan’s floral shirt was a poly-cotton blend. The most interesting thing that BBC said was “Brando Urie.” I’m sure these are very useful bits of info...

    Kerrang’s Reading Special said that “After getting felled by a single hit last year, the joyous tidal wave of missiles that welcome Panic! at the Disco this time round seems almost like a display of affection. That they’ve toured this long on the back of a single record is impressive, but while their vaudeville emo-pop melange gets a faultless execution, without the circus stageshow trappings or any unexpected drama it feels like something’s held back. They are however, a Ritalin bomb compared to the Red Hot Chili Peppers...”

    there were a lot of jokes made about the bottling from 2006, but nothing as dramatic happened this year. 

    NME wrote that a bottle grazed Jon’s head at Reading during the intro to Lying is the Most Fun... so here’s that song (except the description of that video says the bottling happened during the song idk). I never spotted the moment but maybe someone else can point it out. 

    Ryan’s at the end of this TAI TV episode

    On August 30th the band posted a journal entry that said “Just wanted to thank everybody over in Europe for showing us a great time as always. Decaydance Fest was great, and Reading made us feel very welcome once again. As much as we love it over there, we are very glad to be home continuing to work on the new record. We also have 2 shows for you west coasters coming up soon... That might be it for the rest of the year, so pllease make sure to come out if you can and say hello!”

    RYAN’S BIRTHDAY (August 30)

    Ok, this wasn’t a show (or even a big deal), but I’m sticking it in this post anyways since the current fandom seems to have turned it into a notable event that’s somehow associated with Bumbershoot. ??

    The guys had a few days off before they had to be in Seattle for Bumbershoot. It looked like Ryan flew into NYC to see Keltie when the band flew home from the UK. There were pictures of them in Central Park (I don’t mean the cheesy photoshoot). Keltie threw Ryan a birthday party at Angels & Kings (I heard Travie McCoy had his birthday there earlier that summer too). Most of the pictures from this party had a weird focus on Keltie and her fellow Sugar & Spice members, but anything I post will end up in this tag. 

    This article is still up! And here’s the article where Rolling Stone talks about how Keltie found a bunch of pictures of Ryan online to decorate with. Perez Hilton also posted a picture from Ryan’s birthday party and said “Uhmmm, dude, that headband is totally gay. And that’s not a bad thing” and then filed the post under “gay gay gay.”

    The whole Ryden Seattle story is fanfiction btw. However, Brendon and Ryan were together the morning after Ryan’s birthday to do the Fuse interview for the Videos That Rocked The World episodes that aired in November... here’s an example from the Nirvana episode. They definitely talked in the Ok Go episode too. The ads made it seem like Brendon & Ryan would be talking WAY more than they were actually shown, though... it wasn’t very interesting in the end.

    BUMBERSHOOT (September 1)

    here’s some stuff I’ve posted so far

    here’s a basic playlist

    One review said that “I was anticipating Panic! At the Disco to be a favorite for Bumbershoot, and I'm not the only one. The turnout was overwhelming. The show sold out, as in… even if you got a Bumbershoot ticket, some people were denied entrance to the stadium.”

    an interview from Bumbershoot

    THE VMAs (September 9)

    this got a separate post

    SAN DIEGO STREET SCENE (September 22)

    here are some pictures

    a playlist of some videos (I put a couple good ones towards the top)

    Ryan had been talking more onstage throughout this season, which led to complaints that he was too deadpan & boring. I thought it was just nice to see him way more comfortable & confident. 

    September 24 @ the Nokia Theater in NYC

    here are some pictures

    The band was invited to perform at some kind of event kickoff... the main info I retained was that there weren’t too many fans there specifically for P!ATD. I think Gym Class Heroes performed too.

    here's one video and another.

    For some reason Rolling Stone thought that everything the band wrote before September had been scrapped... so they shared this video the next day and said that we might never hear that song again. They didn’t even know that it was called Nine in the Afternoon until a fan commented.

    Angels & Kings held a karaoke contest after this show and listed the P!ATD guys on myspace as the judges, but that’s all I know about that.

    Panic at the Disco’s AP cover article in spring 2008 said that the band’s performance at a pre-Grammy show in early February was “their first public appearance in more than a year” and made a big deal out of that. I have no idea why anyone would say that.

    Radio Facts Top 10 Cities For a Musicians to Live

    New Post has been published on https://radiofacts.com/radio-facts-top10-cities-for-a-musicians-to-live-2/

    Radio Facts Top 10 Cities For a Musicians to Live
    Radio Facts: Radio Facts:

    Best Cities to Live in For Musicians and Average Rent Prices per City

    Radio Facts: “Back in the day on the boulevard of Linden, we use to kick routines…” Ok, I never grew up on Linden in Queens, NY as  A Tribe Called Quest did but back in the day, most musicians would tell you that you had to journey to New York or Los Angeles if were seeking that priceless record deal. The Big Apple and Hollywood were the places where dreams were made if you could actually navigate the entertainment landscapes and make the right connections.
    In today’s market, New York and Los Angeles still remain the two meccas of entertainment in the United States but with the power of the internet the game has completely changed.  If you look at groups like The Foreign Exchange, they began collaborating when Phonte lived in North Carolina and Nicolay lived in the Netherlands by exchanging music via Okayplayer’s message board, hence the name Foreign Exchange.   Several albums and a Grammy nomination later, they are completely independent and continue to sell out venues worldwide.
    The point is, you don’t have to live in a big city in order for you to have success in the music industry but there are a few locations across this great country that lend themselves to the well-being of any aspiring musician. While people have various opinions about where is the absolute best place to live for a musician, we narrowed this list down to 10 cities that could provide a great environment for a music artist to foster their careers.

    10.Raleigh

    Talent from every genre is constantly arising in Raleigh. You can find everything from singer/songwriters, rock bands, to hip hop music heads. This place has a thriving music culture with a multitude of venues that cater to the locals. Red Hat Amphitheater, Deep South the Bar, The Pour House, and King’s are just a few. J.Cole has ties to this city as he is from North Carolina. It is also about a 35-minute drive from Chapel Hill which is one of the most famous college towns on the planet, which also possesses a deep music culture. An indie artist could really make a name for themselves here. Not to mention you can still find apartments here right outside the city in the $750 -$800/month range. I say that is winning!
    (Click Next for New City)

    9.Seattle

    Historically, Seattle has always been known for its music scene. From Jimi Hendrix to the grunge movement, it has a thriving music culture.
    Apart from generating huge modern acts like Macklemore, Seattle is home to a few great festivals as well. From JamFest to Bumbershoot, Seattle has a stage for indie artists to take advantage of. Let’s not forget about the music venues like the Triple Door, Paragon, or the various others that cater to the local music scene. You will definitely need a roommate in Seattle because the cost of living isn’t cheap.
    A one-bedroom in the city runs about $1700. Ouch! But there is more than enough of a music culture to offset the cost by the value you gain in exposure to potential fans. (Click Next for New City)

    8.Atlanta

    Jermaine Dupri was said, “Welcome to Atlanta” and if you are a musician you might want to listen to him. There are so many talented singers, musicians, and rappers who hail from the ATL. T.I., Ludacris, Monica, and Usher just to name a few are some of the best in the game. Atlanta is also home of one of the biggest hip hop music festivals in the country, the A3C. With a myriad of venues and studios throughout the city, ATL is often referred to as Black Hollywood. Although Atlanta has become more of a progressive city the cost of living isn’t too bad. A one-bedroom apartment in the city is still about $1100 per month.
    (Click Next for New City)

    7.New Orleans

    New Orleans was built on music amongst other things. The food culture is absolutely phenomenal and you can get some of the best seafood you’ve had in your life down in the Bayou. NOLA is the city of Jazz and Blues. The idea of the “jazz funeral” was born in the swamplands, where procession members celebrate the life of the departed through song and dance, and the brass band tradition born in neighborhoods like Tremé is still very much alive these days.
    New Orleans has music venues for days. Whether its 13 Monaghan or the Apple Barrel, locals have a place to showcase their talent. New Orleans is also not very expensive to live. A one-bedroom apartment in the city will get you for about $1000 -$1100. Outside of the city, $800 is the norm.

    6.Portland

    Portland is home to the basketball team the Trailblazers. The same can be said of their massive music and art culture.  The city of Portland loves its Cafe’s, indie music venues, galleries, and all things artistic. If you ever travel to Portland, be sure to checkout 12128, an exhibition space located in an old crabbing ship. Thriving with music of all kinds, Portland is home to some of the most talented local artists out there. It features a thriving live music scene and it is home to some very unique talent. McMenamins Crystal Ballroom, Doug Fir Lounge, Revolution Hall, and Edgefield are just a few of the venues that cater to the locals. The other great attribute about the city is that it still offers more affordable housing than nearby San Francisco and Seattle
    (Click Next for New City)

    5.Chicago

    Even with all the violence you hear about in Chicago, it is literally like Charles Dicken’s “A Tale of Two Cities.” The indie music scene in Chicago is quite active. From the Double Door, City Winery, Lincoln Hall, to the Promontory, Chicago is buzzing with local talent. Chitown native, Chance the Rapper even hosts an open mic from time to time to showcase local talent. For all the fancy downtown restaurants, you can actually eat pretty cheap in the city but beware you may gain a few pounds as the food is awesome. The cost of living isn’t the greatest but there are few neighborhoods that you can still sneak into for an affordable price and not have to worry about the bullets flying. Pilsen and Bronzeville are two up and coming neighborhoods that are still in the city that might bode well for an aspiring musician. Besides that, the city is home to some of the best music festivals in the world where you can actually connect with the artists. Trust me, I know! One last tidbit, even some of the local radio stations still honor “Music Mondays” where artists can actually come to play their music for the music director. There is a sign-up process but they will actually listen.
    (Click Next for New City)

    4.Nashville

    Nashville used to be all about country music and it still is but there is an emerging scene in Nashville that caters to many genres. Nashville is home to an immense amount of talented bands, The Black Keys, Paramore, and Kings of Leon. The indie scene’s pretty strong over the river in East Nashville. While the indie scene in strong, the rent in East Nashville is highly affordable. It is about 9.5% lower than the national average and it caters to an indie music crowd. From Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar to The Basement, there are also quite a few venues for an indie artist to perform and showcase their talent. If major labels are your thing, several of the majors have offices in Nashville as well so build your buzz and they may come looking for you. (Click Next for New City)

    3.Austin

    All I will say is SXSW Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, and 6th Street. Hailed as the live music capital of the world, Austin has become one of the most important cities in the music industry. When you walk down 6th Street almost every store, bar, lounge, hotel, has a place to perform. The venues extend pass 6th Street and beyond so take your pick. Austin is a progressive city in southern conservative state so it appeals to most liberal musicians. A one bedroom apartment in the city will run you about $1400 per month, which isn’t cheap. Outside of the city, you are looking at $950 per month but you could potentially have the greatest indie career of your life just playing in the city alone. Austin really supports its local artists.

    2. New York

    New York, New York big city of dreams and everything in New York isn’t always what it seems but one thing for sure, it is a great place to live if you are a musician. Prospective artists can make huge connections in the Big Apple, with many of the biggest offices like Universal, Atlantic, and Interscope are right there in town. Try an internship to get your foot in the door or just hang out where the people who can make it happen hang out. The bars, restaurants, and lounges throughout Manhattan are good places to start.
    There are also various venues in New York that cater to aspiring artists of all genres. From the Bowery Ballroom, the Brooklyn Bowl, to the subway platform, an indie artist can hone their skills.
    New York is an expensive place to live when you are ballin’ on a budget but if you can get a side job and a roommate, you can make it happen. Besides, you can take the train or bus everywhere in New York so invest in a monthly pass and keep it pushing. (Click Next for New City)

    1. Los Angeles

    Los Angeles is an expensive place to live in. Trust me, I know! But here is the “but…” it can also be a place where dreams come true. That sounds cliché but there are so many powerful people in the industry that can put you in the right room.
    From the record labels, venues, studios, to the Hollywood hot spots, LA is definitely a mecca for entertainment. On a random Tuesday night you could find yourself sharing the stage with the likes of Jamie Foxx, Nelly, Dave Chappelle, or a host of others. The reason I mention these people in particular is that I have personally witnessed this.
    The weather in LA also lends itself to the hustle as you feel more inspired to be out because the weather is so amazing most of the time. The competition is tough in LA but if you are talented, you will be noticed and sometimes that is all it takes.  As far as the living situation, just like New York, you may need a roommate. Try living in certain parts of the valley or south LA because you may find the rent a bit cheaper in those places.  LA doesn’t have the greatest public transportation either so if you can’t afford a car, staying central in the city is probably your best option to access public transportation.
    Please feel free to like and share.

    Must-see Music Festivals in USA

    Do you want to fill your life with unforgettable emotions and incredible days?

    Do you like to feel young and free forever?

    Or you just love music in its full scope?

    Than we prepared specially for you a top list of the most awesome music fests in USA! These events will show you the power of music. The music which is the most fabulous thing in the world.

    Lollapalooza

    Lollapalooza is held in summer in Grant Park, Chicago.

    This year Lolla celebrates the 25th anniversary and the founders prepared something special and tremendous for fans. Firstly, the lineup headed by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Major Lazer, Lana Del Rey, G-Eazy, Ellie Goulding, M83, Disclosure, Halsey and tens of well-known and loved artists. Moreover the festival will be going four days instead of 3 last year. Lollapalooza is a cocktail of music, dance, theatre and handicraft fair. Music here is diverse – heavy metal, punk rock, hip-hop. Lollapalooza discovered such stars as The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Machine, Green Day.

    Want to have the greatest weekends of your life? Grab your friends and head to the fest! Keep dancing and singing your heart out. Relax in the grass. Take a minute to have some snack. Refuel. And go party rocking hard! Music is our DNA.

    Burning Man

    Just imagine: a city in the desert; culture of possibilities; a net of dreamers and doers. The Burning Man seems to be something unreal. It’s a mix of everything unformal in the world: art, people, place, music, clothes, etc. If you have not been there you won’t understand what it’s all about. This festival creates a unique world in the middle of nowhere in the Black Rock desert. You need to bring all you need for survival: sleep-place, water, food. DJs spin music the whole day and night, artists put their installations, and it all culminates in burning of several huge wood figures in Saturday after sunset. Just “passers-by” and viewers are not allowed to be in the fest. Each should show his creativity: artistic installations, body-art, unusual clothes and so on. No rules and no limits for the festival space. You can sit where you want, you can do what you wish, BUT all you do should be positive and contribute some part of your soul to create the atmosphere of tribal life and ancient culture with modern format. This is what heals you from outworld problems, changes your mind, saves love and peace and makes you a child of nature.

    If you get a chance to immerse yourself into this esoteric world, then don’t just pass by. You will feel the essence of life. You will feel the universe inside you.

    Bumbershoot

    The main reason to visit Seattle is the Bumbershoot fest taking place in the center of the city each September. It’s one of a kind in this region and it can be considered steady as its popularity only increases with a course of time. This event highlights not only music performed by local and world-famous stars like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Death Cab for Cutie, KYGO. The program also contains cinematography, dance, theatre, genius ideas and all kinds of creative work. People come with their families, because here they expand their view of the world, enrich their inner world, taste dishes cooked by big and small restaurants, enjoy beauty in life. Develop yourself from all sides. Spend family holidays at Bumbershoot!

    Kwanzaa Festival

    One week before New Year streets of American cities will be filled with tribal songs and exotic drum rhythms of wild and mysterious Africa. Black continent’s culture entered into the American continent together with African slaves. This people save carefully memories of their ancestral home. On New Year ’s Eve Afro-americans celebrate the Kwanzaa festival (from Swahili word “matunda ya kwanza” meaning the “first fruit of yield”), aimed to remind about their traditions and cultural patterns. One of the biggest events of this kind – Capital City Kwanzaa Festival is usually held in Richmond suburb, Virginia. Celebration usually begins in the family circle. In the evening all members dressed into national African clothes gather for dinner. There is an altar with candles, fruits and other symbols of yield on a dinner table. At meal they discuss 7 basic principles of African culture – self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperated economics, tenacity for purpose, creativity and faith. Besides they organize concerts of ethnic music and dances, memorial services, fairs and educational and outreach campaigns.  Come and visit Kwanzaa fest! Plunge into ancient culture of so far Africa and you will surely be astonished by richness of our world!
