About Sigur Ros:
Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson (guitar and vocals), Georg Hólm (bass) and Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson (drums) formed the group in Reykjavík in August 1994. Their name is Icelandic wordplay: while the individual words Sigur and Rós mean, respectively, Victory and Rose, “Victory Rose” wouldn’t be grammatically correct; the name is actually borrowed from Jónsi’s younger sister Sigurrós, who was born the same day as the band was formed, and then split into two words. They soon won a record deal with the local Sugarcubes-owned record label, Bad Taste. In 1997, they released Von, meaning “hope” and in 1998 a remix collection named Von brigði. This name is also Icelandic wordplay: Vonbrigði means “disappointment”, but Von brigði means “variations on Von”. The band was joined by Kjartan Sveinsson on keyboards in 1998. He is the only member of Sigur Rós with musical training, and has contributed most of the orchestral and string arrangements for their later work.


Reminder…Black Keys tomorrow @ the Ted

Hey…just wanted to send a reminder to those hipsters that wait to get their ticket until the day of the show…the Black Keys are at the Ted Constant Center in Norfolk, VA tomorrow March 23 2012. Tickets are a whopping  $47.50 or $42.50 depending on where you sit. Yikes!

This is on the Ted’s website:

“Make sure to come out early for our Rockin’ Pre Show prior to The Black Keys Concert! Party starts at 6:00pm and will be located outside on the plaza of The Constant Center. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. Live music, corn hole and fun entertainment for all will be provided!
The first 250 fans to the Pre Show will also get a free guitar pick! Don’t miss your chance to walk away with some awesome gear!”

I also highly recommend watching the opening band, the Arctic Monkeys.

If someone could get me on the guest-list (plus 1?), I’d love to write a review of the show. Just send me an email to info@HipsterApproved.net for info. Thanks!

Hipster band ‘Cake’ perform tonight in Norfolk 12-1-11

In local news…96X FM is hosting a concert tonight at the Ted at ODU.

Hipster bands Cake, Cage The Elephant, and Bush are performing. There are a few other bands I haven’t really heard of…and some I’ve only heard on SNL, like Foster The People. But I’m sure some Hipsters really like them…

Anyway tickets were hella expensive plus a service charge. Doors open at 5pm, so that’s in just a couple of hours. If I were going…I’d just show up at the door and see if anyone has any extra tickets they’d like to sell cheap instead of them loosing their money on. But that’s just me….

I can’t make it to this show, but if there’s anyone out there that goes and would like to be a contributor to HipsterApproved.net just let me know. Leave a comment or email me at info@hipsterapproved.net
