Are You Ready to Dance?!

MTV is heading here the weekend before Halloween to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Dance Party Ever!

You may recall last year we had a heavy hand in breaking the Guinness World Record for the most people ever to do to the Time Warp and we couldn’t resist getting our hands in another one this year.

The O Music Awards (MTV’s online Music Awards) are the people putting it all together in celebration of the Awards Show on October 29. While all the dance party participants have already been selected, you’ll be able to watch the whole event streamed on The O Music Awards site & here, too! Proceeds will go to help LGBT youth issues.

Get ready to hear a lot more about it this month from us & them online & in the meantime – vote for your faves in the O Music Awards!

Open for The Parlotones

The international sensations The Parlotones are hitting Los Angeles on November 4 and they want you to be the opening act.

Visit & submit your band once a day to be chosen. Have you friends submit, tell them you’re band is the one that needs this amazing opportunity!

The Parlotones have just three full length albums and in that, have sold more albums in South Africa than Coldplay has in the US. (Crazy, right?) As they make their US run, this is sure to be a “catch them when you could” kind of show.

Click below to submit your band or the one you want to see on this show!

Tickets are available now via Ticketweb!
