#NP April 2016

Our latest #NP at Ticketfly HQ, the blog series that brings you all the beats playing around the ‘fly, is anything but an April Fools’ joke. We’re pretty serious about our tunes, so we wouldn’t do you like that. Skip the April showers and ring in the start of spring with us and our picks for music and shows this month.

We just launched our new iOS app and we’re celebrating the only way we know how—new tunes and new shows baked right into our latest #NP at Ticketfly HQ, the blog series that brings you all the beats playing around the ‘fly. Also, we recently discovered that Lauren, a flyer on our Marketing team, is slightly obsessed with Beyoncé. You read it here first. Here’s to vibing out to some classics and new jams on our playlist below.

#NP February 2016

We’ve done a lot in a very short 2016, and the best way to celebrate is with some great tunes curated by our very Flyers. We’re leaping into the February edition of #NP at Ticketfly HQ, our blog series that brings you all the beats playing around the ‘fly, with the likes of Modest Mouse, The Strokes, and even a little Snoop Dogg (what ever happened to Snoop Lion?). Speaking of animals, since yesterday was Groundhog Day, go ahead and spin this playlist again, and again, and again.

NPLawrenceFebName: Lawrence
Department: Customer Support
Now playing: Chvrches – The Bones of What You Believe
Best concert experience: Best? Hard to say. Most infamous would definitely be Darkest Hour at The Pound SF in 2006.
Next upcoming concert in February or beyond: Godspeed You! Black Emperor on 2/3 at The Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA
Most recent album purchase: I don’t really purchase physical albums anymore, but I did get an INCREDIBLE album for my birthday. Mo-Do – Was ist Das? Just listen and feel the party!
Random fact: Evan Brewer of Entheos/The Faceless/ex-Animosity used to apparently play and train with the Wooten brothers. Explains why he’s as good as he is on bass!
