The Offspring Hit the Road for 2012 North American Tour



The Offspring will hit the road for their North American tour starting Thursday, August 30 in Rockford, IL.  The tour includes performances at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver (September 27), Terminal 5 in New York City (September 19), the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles (October 5) and San Jose Civic in Northern California (October 2). Supporting them at various engagements are Dead Sara and Neon Trees. Also on their itinerary: a headlining slot on the first night of Riot Fest in Chicago (September 14).

The band, which consists of Dexter Holland (vocals, guitar), Noodles (guitar), Greg Kriesel (bass) and Pete Parada (drums)—are in the midst of a national tour supporting their Active Rock and Alternative hit “Days Go By” with its signature guitar line and lyrics about hope in uncertain times. The song is from their acclaimed ninth studio album of the same name (Columbia).

“A healthy representation of how the quartet has evolved from its punk roots,” noted Billboard (5/26/12) about the single “Days Go By,” adding:  “Vocalist Dexter Holland is still adept at delivering well-timed alt-rock hooks, and veteran producer Bob Rock keeps this a tight affair.”  Commenting about the album, the OC Weekly (6/21/12) said that “the band haven't given up their edge while still keeping their crown in the pop-punk strata. Lyrically, the album comes across as one of the Offspring's most personal, with touches of the frustration of the daily grind.”

Offspring’s last album, 2008's Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace, featured the alternative and rock radio staples “Hammerhead” and “You're Gonna Go Far, Kid.”  Also among the band's best-known hits are the rock anthems “Self Esteem,” “Come Out And Play (Keep ‘Em Separated)” and “The Kids Aren't Alright."  The Huntington Beach, CA-based band has performed over 1100 shows across the globe and sold more than 36 million albums worldwide.  Their 1994 release Smash remains the highest-selling album of all-time on an independent label.

CAM4 To Sponsor The Ms. EXXXOTICA 2017 Competition

EXXXOTICA, the nation’s largest event dedicated to love and sex, just announced that webcam portal CAM4 has signed on as a show sponsor for 2017. CAM4 will be sponsoring and presenting one of the expo’s most popular events, as well as one of its newest initiatives for EXXXOTICA Chicago in June and EXXXOTICA New Jersey in November.
Developed as a community with a focus on social networking, CAM4 is much more than a traditional webcam site, and they are now the presenting sponsor of SW!TCH, EXXXOTICA’s LGBT showcase. SW!TCH made its debut at EXXXOTICA New Jersey in 2016 as the show continued its efforts to be completely inclusive. SW!TCH was created as a means for LGBT vendors, talent, and performers to become part of the EXXXOTICA family. SW!TCH will continue to grow in 2017, and with CAM4 as the presenting sponsor, their booth will be the anchor of the showcase that will feature seminars, events, vendors, talent, and broadcasters catering to LGBT attendees.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."

SUMMER FABRIC "INGREDIENTS"

DENIM
COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…

Party-goers who paid anywhere between $1,500 and $50,000 were able to enjoy a live fashion show, live music, DJ, open bar, buffet and rub elbows with Playboy Playmates. Hugh Hefner was even awarded, "Humanitarian of the Year" for his commitment to helping charities and those in need.
