Warped Tour Charlotte


Warped in Charlotte was nothing short of great.  For one thing we had our own room at one end of an inside air-conditioned trailer to do interviews.  The people you interview appreciate air conditioning!  They did tell us how much they enjoyed performing in Miami though.  We did some crazy interviews with bands like Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Andrew McMahon from Jacki’s Mannequin, Gym Class Heroes, Charlotte Sometimes, Reel Big fish, Cobra Starship, Anberlin, As I lay Dying, The Color Fred, The Academy Is, We the Kings, Just Surrender, Everytime I Die, Relient K, Pierce the Veil, Tat and 303.

I may have even left a couple out!  Look for great interviews coming soon.

Cartel Moves to WindUp Records



New York — Wind-up Entertainment and the rock band Cartel have entered in to a number of agreements.  The band’s future recordings will be released by Wind-up Records.  Additionally, the sale of all Cartel merchandise at on-line, retail, and touring points of sale will be handled by Wind-up Entertainment’s Pronto Merch.  Lastly, Cartel has entered in to an agreement with Wind-up Artist Development Corporation, Inc.

The Atlanta-based quintet, featuring Will Pugh (Vocals / Guitar), Joseph Pepper (Guitar), Nic Hudson (Guitar), Jeff Lett (Bass) and Kevin Sanders (Drums), self-released their first EP titled RANSOM in March, 2004.  A deal with the Militia Group followed, and the CHROMA album was issued in 2005.  Epic Records re-released the title in the summer of 2006, delivering a significant groundswell.   The band’s self-titled follow-up CARTEL followed in 2007.  The band parted ways with Epic Records opening the door for this alliance with Wind-up Entertainment.
