OurStage Artists Xolie Morra And The Strange Kind Win Appearance On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

It’s no secret that we here at OurStage are longtime fans of Xolie Morra and her band The Strange Kind. We’ve been following her career and her growth as an artist ever since she used OurStage to win the opportunity to play Lilith back in 2010. In the years in between, she’s been all over OurStage, winning many channel and finals competitions, and consistently bringing engaging and boundary-pushing new material to the table.

That’s why we were so excited when the good folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! came to us with Xolie and the band as their pick as the winner of “The OurStage Panel: Jimmy Kimmel Live!” competition. As winners, they will appear as the musical guest on an upcoming episode of the hugely popular late night talk show. This hardworking band truly deserves this opportunity and we have no doubt they will shine. Here’s what happened when they got the news – be sure to stay tuned til the end for Grandma Johnson, the world’s oldest Jimmy fan:

We will announce the air date for Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind’s appearance as soon as we have it!

Meet The Second Batch Of Winners For The Shout It Out With Hanson Competition In July!

It’s confirmation time for the second batch of winners for the Shout it Out With HANSON competition! Winners for Mesa, Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco were announced earlier this week and today we’re excited to announce the winners for Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Spokane, Boise, Salt Lake City and Boulder! These lucky artists are getting a shot at opening for HANSON on tour stops in their hometown. Check out the bands, their tunes, and their local competition below.

Scene & Heard: Seattle, WA

Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Death Cab For Cutie. What do all three of these heavy hitters have in common? They all started out in The Emerald City. It’s no doubt that many consider Seattle, WA to be one of the alternative music capitals of the world. It seems only natural that the 3-day rock festival Bumbershoot be held here every year. With the recent surge of indie pop and indie rock acts, Seattle is also the proud home of the Sasquatch Festival, which showcases awesome indie, folk and even electronic acts each year.

For the inside scoop on up-to-date local venues and artists, it’s best to first turn to Seattle’s alternative magazine Seattle Weekly. Like many similar magazines in cities across the country, this publication points out notable venues in the area that support the “local vibe” of Seattle. Over the past couple years, SW has hosted its own local music festival called Reverbfest which has helped local bands such as The Moondoggies and The Crying Shame. The magazine even hosts a video series called “Music on the Ferry”. Check out one of the sessions:
