Starchildren, rejoice! Joonbug recently had the honor of sitting down with none other than trance vocal legend JES before her set with ATB this past Saturday night at The Roseland Ballroom. JES, who has been involved in the scene for over a decade and has worked with fellow superstars such as Tiesto and Cosmic Gate, opened up to us about her musical style, influences, and more:
Guernsey's is putting on the auction of a lifetime. The auction house, known for many prestigious offerings, including items and paraphernalia of Princess Diana, Mickey Mantle, John F. Kennedy, and many more, is putting on a rock 'n' roll auction, with one-of-a-kind items. The auction will take place September 24th and 25th and there will be a chance to preview the auction on the 23rd.
I was able to snag an exclusive interview with Arlan Ettinger, President of Guernsey's, about the upcoming auction. Head to the auction on Saturday to bid on (or watch others) the famous Manny's Music original inscribed photographs of celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Janis Joplin, and The Rolling Stones. Manny's Music was an iconic store that contained thousands of signed photographs of music's biggest names. Also on Saturday will be original photographs of The Beatles, outfits from the band Kiss, and original letters and artwork by John Lennon.
Sunday will be dedicated to Astrid Kirchherr's original photographs of The Beatles. Astrid, who was engaged to Stuart Sutcliffe before his untimely death, produced some of the most iconic photos of The Beatles ever taken. There are nearly 1000 photos being auctioned, along with the negatives and copyrights to the photos.
How exactly does an auction like this come together? Arlan divulged that he was contacted about a year ago to meet with Astrid in Germany. Ettinger, who has been doing auctions for over 35 years, has spent his career building relationships and has learned to deal sensitively with the sentimental items of others. It took nine months to put together this particular auction.
There has been great interest in this event, from people all over the world. Luckily, with the help of LiveAuctioneers.com, people may now bid in real time from wherever they are, so even if you can't make it to good ol' NYC, you can still acquire a piece of history. People of all ages (including celebs) bid at these fun events. Check out some of the items to be auctioned!
Ok, so in compliance with one of America's most notorious traditions, I have made up my own Valentine's Day mix for all you lovers out there. I opted for a more eclectic mix than your usual radio tunes, some golden oldies, some newbies, some you may not recognize and some that you might not necessarily deem as a lovey-dovey tune, but what can I say, this is my prerogative. So between the roses, the wine, the chocolate, and the 3 little words that light up the world, take some time and give this magical playlist a listen.

Michael Cohl, the former chairman of Live Nation, the online promotion and ticket purchasing company, recently counter-sued his old company.
Michael Cohl was originally sued for $5.35 million by Live Nation for breaching a contract he signed when he quit the company in 2008. Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Cohl is countersuing and alleges that Live Nation attempted to "interfere" and "destroy" his opportunity to acquire promotional rights to a Stones tour later this year. -Spinner.com
Well everything is pretty much in the title. Remember this old wise man who once told you "the rich are getting richer...". These guys have sold millions and some more millions of records and will play the Super Bowl. It seems that their electro reconversion was a good choice.
The Super Bowl is the most watched event on television in America. 153 million people should watch it this year. It is the most expensive time on the air to broadcast an advertising.
Black Eyed Peas now enter the legend between The Who, The Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen, wether you like it or not. Super Bowl is at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas on February 6.
He may only be 22 years old, but Jesse Marco is already well-established as one of New York City's most talented and sought-after DJs. His signature style and flair for mixing cross-genre classics, like Led Zeppelin and Jay Z or Michael Jackson and Nirvana, has caught the attention of some of the industry's biggest names, including Tom Ford, Russel Simmons, and Kanye West. Since he started spinning on his first turntables at the age of 12, his passion, talent, and dedication has taken him to the top, with a little help from DJ legends Mark Ronson and DJ AM. Don't miss your chance to get in on the action with Jesse Marco at Joonbug's Fashion Week Gala. Oh, and did we mention that he's also a model? How appropriate.
