Wow. The race for the Democratic nomination was exciting, controversial, hard fought, and a tremendous demonstration of Democracy in action. And we saw the finale live on Ustream.
Last night I watched Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama celebrate victory as the nominee for the Democratic Party. The speech was powerful.
Anyone else excited for 5 more months!
As I have mentioned several times before, Senator John McCain is a Ustreamer as well. I’m excited to see how this race plays out and hopefully the candidates continue to embrace new media, open dialogue and Ustream.TV.Get out to vote, its your civic duty.
As music lovers in the United States are sure to know, the UK and the States have a long, storied history of musical exchanges. Ever since The Beatles came crashing from beyond the Atlantic waves, the States’ music scene would never be quite the same. From the first wave like The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, to the 80’s new wave like Duran Duran and The Cure to even the stars of today like Amy Winehouse, Muse and Coldplay… we all have our favorite UK artist; who’s yours?
Now thanks to Ustream, you don’t even have to wait for the plane to touchdown to watch your favorite Uk bands of tomorrow, live and in the moment.
We have two special performances in store today Wednesday, June 4, both featuring the stylings of emerging UK artists of today.
One has already landed a heady U.S. gig at Ustream stalwart radio station, Sophie’s Lounge, based in San Diego:
And for those of you who like to know about the music giant of tomorrow extra early (like myself), our UK tastemaking friends at LoveMusic.tv and Kruger Magazine bring to you the a live show from Camden London, with headliner Modernaire. This gem starts at Wednesday, 12:00 Noon PT / 3 pm ET.
When any of these acts are in all of your friends’ iPods one day, don’t pretend like I didn’t tell you so.
