Setting Up And Getting Together For Instagram’s 9th Worldwide Instameet

Tue, 05/13/2014 - 11:44

One of the things that makes Instagram such a great community is the fact that it brings creative people together from all over the world. Each year since this form of social media started, Instameets have grown tremendously, with cities from every corner of the world hosting their own. It’s a gathering of people, connecting, exploring and celebrating creativity. May 17th marks the 9th worldwide meet,  it’s time to find one in your town and go meet new people!

Join a Meet-up

If you want to find a meet up nearby go to meetup.com/instagram to find one in your town. Make sure you click “Count Me In” and invite your friends.

Host Your Own

You didn’t find a meet up in your area? Then start one! Gather some of your friends, tell them to invite theirs, go to a cool location and make a photo party out of it by sharing it on Instagram.

Spread The Word

Get everyone excited for the Instameet and share the word on your social media, like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, your own blog.

 

Here are some Instameet Inspirations:

Keep it Simple

Pick a location that is easy for folks to access, remember everyone is there to meet each other, not to get lost along the way.

Coordinate

Let all your Instagram friends know about the meet up, post a picture announcing it and contact them through Instagram Direct to get more people to participate.

Pick a Hashtag

Every Instameet needs its own hashtag, think of a unique one. Spread the word about it and make people excited. That unique hashtag is what will link others and help them discover photographs taken during that day.

Be Inspired

If you need a little boost as to what to do, check out past Instameets on Instagram or the Instagram Blog, look through the pictures to see what they’ve done, perhaps even set a theme to your own.

From Russia, with love, and definitely a lot of love for the Russian band Hospital, who formed their Indie Rock roots back in 2011. The following year, in December 2012 they released their first single that included two songs: “Time Will Tell” and “Falling.” Hospital have toured around Russia and even opened for Lana del Rey in 2013, which is also when they released their debut album,  When The Trees Were Higher.

Now the band has returned once more, with a new vibrant and catchy single “Revelation,” that suits those perfect Summer vibes. The track was produced by Jim Greer, who worked alongside Foster The People.

Take a listen to “Revelation” below!

 

You can buy the track “Revelation” over at Hospital’s Band Camp website.

Jack White’s “Ultra” Version of Lazaretto Will Blow Your Vinyl Mind

Tue, 05/06/2014 - 16:53


You would think Jack White doesn’t have much left to pull out of his magic hat, as this man has done the impossible in the name of music. To name a few: releasing a vinyl via 1,000 helium balloons, he invented the triple decker vinyl record, and on Record Store Day he recorded, pressed, and released a song all in one day.

Here are a few of the features on his “Ultra” sophomore LP 12-inch vinyl, Lazaretto:

- 180 gram vinyl
- 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
- 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
- Side A plays from the inside out
- Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
- Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
- Both sides end with locked grooves
- Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
- Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record
- Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
- Different running order from the CD/digital version
- LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version

Watch the video below of Jack White giving the detailed scoop on his record, which is set for release June 10th via Third Man Records. Pre-orders are highly suggested!
