VMA Recap

It seems like its been non-stop VMA’s for a few weeks now – and as the hangover sets in – it’s time for a little recap. We all had crossed fingers and eager hearts that our favorite Russell Brand would be a raging success – and while their seems to be a bunch of mixed reviews, we still love him and think he was fabulous! Our dear Jonas Brothers were great…and the nutty TOKIO HOTEL took home best new artist! We also played host to a super fabulous official VMA party on Saturday night, where T-Pain brought the house down! Drinks were flowing and fun times were had. Hope all who watched and participated, had a great time too!

Brand Gets Booed

But only because he asked us to. It was another sold out show for our favorite Brit..and was it funny!! After the stand up routine, we were all happy to play heckling fans as Russell returned as lovable lothario Aldous Snow as he filmed a few snippets for the upcoming movie “Get Him To The Greek.” Such a fun night – not a dry eye in the house, as tears of laughter took over the room. As always, such a pleasure to work with Team Russell – hopefully we see you all again soon! Also, don’t miss Russell TONIGHT on Jay Leno! Many thanks to some of Russell’s die-hards for taking such great pictures during the show! Check out TINKERBELLA’S photos for some great ones of Russell as Aldous Snow. Stay tuned as we post some of our own later!

Some Serious VMA Love For The Roxy

It’s already super cool that our homie Russell Brand is tagged as the host of this years Video Music Awards (check out his live comedy show here this Sunday!) – his residency couldn’t have been more fun, and he was such a cool guy to have around! Now, our OTHER killer residency o’ the summer (which concludes tonight!) TRV$DJ-AM is this year’s house band of the VMA’s. Add those, with a couple nominations for our Shwayze boys – and you’ve got quite the night.
Check out this snippet from the LA TIMES

The duo — a kind of beat-driven version of the revolving-door rock collective Camp Freddy that already has hosted such high-profile guest stars as Paul Wall and Warren G — will perform its third of three sold-out shows at West Hollywood’s Roxy Theatre tonight before going on to serve as house band for the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 7.

Speaking Of The VMAs

Roxy played host on Wednesday to the “Road to The VMA’s” where 3 bands vied for a coveted pre-party slot at the festivities! All star judges The Game, Kat Von D, and Alkaline Trio joined in on the fun and told it how it was! Thanks to U-N-I, Hazelden, and The Ruse for rocking out! Check out the awesome pics courtesy of our good man, Erik Voake.

MTV Is About To Be Branded

Russell Brand Live at The Roxy
Team Roxy was so excited to find out that our very own Russell Brand was named as host of MTV Video Music Awards 2008! He’s obviously one of the biggest rising stars and funniest guys around – and we’re excited for him to be slowly but surely conquering the states. His residency here was some hilarious stuff, and we can’t wait to see him on the oh-so-famous VMA’s (with some of our other favs, the Jo Bro’s)! We showed Russell nothing but love, and we are so excited that the Roxy shows are tagged as the ones that caught the attention of the MTV Powers. Congrats Russell! Here are few articles announcing his new gig!
