AXS TV’S PANEL OF EXPERTS PREDICTED EIGHT OF THE TOP GRAMMY® CATEGORIES

LOS ANGELES – Jan. 22, 2014 – AXS TV today predicted eight of the GRAMMY®’s top categories on the channel’s first-ever GRAMMY®PREDICTION SPECIAL. Hosted by AXS TV’s Ryan Stout, the hour-long LIVE event featured expert opinions from renowned music critic Bob Lefsetz, hip-hop newsmaker DJ Skee, and research entrepreneur John Dick of CivicScience. Using polling conducted from the next-generation data mining company CivicScience, AXS TV’s panel of experts debated CivicScience’s findings, while adding their own thoughts and predictions on eight of the GRAMMY’s top categories including Best Rock Album; Best Rap Album; Best Country Album and Album of the Year, among others.

The SPECIAL predicted massive wins for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, whose singles—such as “Thrift Shop” and “Same Love”—rocketed the hit-making duo into super-stardom, and made them easy favorites for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and the coveted Album of the Year. Best Rock Album was awarded to Kings of Leon for the 2013 release MECHANICAL BULL, while Taylor Swift’s RED took home honors for Best Country Album. And acclaimed newcomer Lorde’s hit single “Royals” was crowned Song of the Year and Record of the Year, with Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell Williams winning Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the irreverent summertime favorite “Blurred Lines.”

The panel of experts were extremely opinionated tonight. Lefsetz and Skee had a spirited debate about the Best Rap Album; Lefsetz favored Drake while Skee supported the merits of Best New Artist nominee Kendrick Lamar: bit.ly/1dQyxtD

When it came to discussing the Best Country Album, Lefsetz had strong criticism for Taylor Swift. While he believes she will win the GRAMMY, Lefsetz actually favors someone else: bit.ly/1dx81zr

To predict the winners, CivicScience used a proprietary method, analyzing results to surveys conducted online among a mix of music enthusiasts and general consumers. CivicScience’s method has been lauded by leading academics, most recently for the company’s impressive forecasting of the 2013 Oscars. For this year’s GRAMMY predictions, nearly 200,000 surveys were included in the company’s analysis. Voters were able to submit their choices right up to the show’s premiere.

Brett Dennen Brings Alternative Rock to AXS TV Concerts Nov. 11

“Thank You for Your Service” Veterans Day Concert

Alternative rock singer-songwriter BRETT DENNEN will perform live on AXS TV CONCERTS, Nov. 11 at 12 a.m. ET | 9 p.m. PT from the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Col. Dennen has been lauded as a break-through success, earning acclaim from Rolling Stone, NPR, and others leading up to this concert on AXS TV.

Having grown up in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California, Dennen went back to his wild roots to write his fifth album, “Smoke and Mirrors,” which will be released Tuesday, Oct. 22. His previous two albums, “Loverboy” (2011) and “Hope for the Hopeless” (2008) peaked on Billboard’s Top 200 at No. 55 and No. 41, respectively. Aside from the music charts, Dennen’s songs have found a home in television, appearing in popular shows such as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Parenthood.”

The singer-songwriter spent much of his life as a hiking guide and camp counselor, so it’s no surprise that he writes most of his songs while immersed in the wilderness, including his new single “Wild Child.” But life is not too serious for this musician; to promote “Smoke and Mirrors,” the self-proclaimed nature-lover published a series of comical videos on YouTube titled “Wilderness Tips with Brett Dennen.” The videos follow Dennen as he shows viewers how to gather food from “tiny taco trees” and where they can find a naturally occurring “beer nest.”

This special Veterans’ Day concert is dedicated to the millions of service men and women who serve and have served around the world as a way of saying “thank you for your service.” The program will also be seen on New Year’s Eve on American Forces Networks around the world.

Dennen’s performance comes in the middle of a jam-packed week of live concerts on AXS TV. The telecast will take place two days after Blackberry Smoke’s performance on Nov. 9 and a few days before hard rock band Clutch takes the national stage on Nov. 14.

Quoteth the warty one, Oderus Urungus, lead singer of GWAR:

 

“The Fate or Chaos” show is the most spectacular show we have done since the one we did before this one, and that one was awesome, even though I can’t remember what it was. Now GWAR’s struggle against your angry God is to be broadcast live by AXS TV and preserverd for all eternity, an undying testimony to the undimmed majesty of the world’s most outrageous rock and roll band…the mighty GWAR!

This show is part of the second leg of the “Fate or Chaos” tour which features support of Warbeast and Wilson. A complete list of dates can be found below.

 

Before the tour stars, GWAR they will be debuting their signature “GWAR-B-Q” sauce at a colossal “Meat & Meet” at the world famous “Grinders” in Kansas City on Monday April 8th from 4-6 PM.

 

August will see the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q, the group’s annual outdoor music and meat-fest which is getting more massive every year. The new album’s release follows soon after, and then the band will embark on a mega-huge world tour that will continue well into 2014. Sounds like business as usual for the hardest working band in show biz.
