Often times it's hard to believe there was a time before our house music. When music festivals were one weekend and everyone jammed out in General Admission. Before it exploded and when it was just a small "underground thing." The entire genre has evolved over time taking on many different forms but it's an absolute must to go back to it's roots. From the disco days to the early 90s when house started making it's way over to the states.

Jenni "JWOWW' Farley and long-term boyfriend Roger Matthews, definitely want to get married in the future but wedding bells are not their main priority at the moment. According to People magazine, the couple who live together, already feel married and are not pressured to do so any time soon.
However, family members might be trying to convince the couple to tie the knot as soon as possible. According to the Jenni, "Roger's dad is dying for us to get married," she says. "He wants grandchildren. He texts me almost every day for that." "I just want a big ring," she says. "That's all I care about – a big ring," she told People magazine.
No surprise there. As they say, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend."

Watching the evolution of who's opening what, where, and who else is getting involved helps create the buzz and excitement behind most hot spots.

What can be better than dinosaurs, dancing, dinner, cupcakes, and glowsticks? Nothing, really. Last night, the American Museum of Natural History held their annual New York Young Philanthropists Museum Dance themed "Bright Young Things," with glowsticks ablaze. The theme, honoring the museum's new exhibit, Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence, brought out the bright side of New York City.
The evening was sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue and featured a silent auction, cocktail party, dinner, and a glowstick-lit after party with beats by DJ Jus-Ske.
With a lifeline filled with astounding musical accolades, Roger Waters, 67, should be enjoying a well-deserved retirement sipping Mai Tai's in a secluded beach estate. Instead, he's opted to continue doing what he loves - playing his bass and singing the songs.
His latest effort was one that he had already accomplished in 1979, performing The Wall. His aim was to re-create his masterpiece album in a live tour-setting with everything today's technology has to offer to purposely enhance the timeless tracks. Having never seen him, David Gilmour, or [Pink Floyd], for that matter, I jumped at the chance when I heard Waters was actually going to go through with it.
