"Body Work" Available on iTunes
Grammy-nominated Morgan Page has teamed up with Canada's Tegan and Sara for a new original tune -- "Body Work." Having remixed numerous cuts for the indie stalwarts, the three wanted to write something together from scratch. The result is one of the most exciting tracks off Morgan's much-anticipated 2012 studio album "In The Air." "Body Work" is a stellar example of Page's skills as a producer and as an artist: brilliantly balancing kinetic house music with blissful radio-ready pop.

Robert Urban stretches out on guitar for THE DAY OF PINK, April 11, 2012 International Day against Bullying, Homophobia and Discrimination in Schools and Communities. Music & guitar solo excerpted from "Hold On" copyright © 2012 music and lyrics by R. Urban. Filmed by Morgan Humphries. Written, directed & edited by R. Urban at Urban Productions, NYC
"When it comes to bullying, silence can truly equal death. Help change people's perceptions of bullying, homophobia and discrimination. How? By changing the game. Turn bullying into a bully-pulpit for righteousness, tolerance and freedom. Speak out against bullying any chance you get - in speech, writing, music, art, dance, sport... in short, in LIFE!" - R. Urban

The San Francisco-based indie pop band Imperial Teen (which has an out gay band member, Roddy Bottum, who is also in Faith No More) is out with their latest video "Runaway", which is all about pastels and place-switching.
From the album Feel the Sound, out now on Merge Records!
I wrote this song to express my feelings in support of anti-bullying. As a 16 year old I see a lot going on around me; especially with bullying and the effects that it has on those who are bullied and what lengths teens will go to to "get away" from it all. I want you to know suicide is never the answer. Truth is...you are loved, you are not alone...you are never alone.
Available on iTunes

I created this video in my small Brooklyn apartment, with a green screen and my own computer. I don't claim to be a videographer - I am an artist.

In honor of emotional eating we present to you an anthem: Eat Everything. De=MC² sent Rocco the beat late one night. He sat listening to it at 3 am while eating a huge bowl of cocoa puffs and stalking his recent ex girlfriend on facebook. As he fell deeper into an internet hole, he continued to emotionally eat and lurk on everyone he'd ever loved facebook page. The next morning he asked Margaret if she would write a verse, then De added hers, with a final verse back and forth and a special appearance by Athens Boys Choir.
Help us EAT EVERYTHING!!!
The track is off my forth coming album, Second Hand Emotion. Due out in spring on 307 Knox Records.
Eat Everything was produced by De=MC² (DeAnna Hoffart) written by Rocco Katastrophe, Margaret Cho, De=MC², Athens Boy Choir and Anastasia Kayiatos.

In March of 1982 in downtown Manhatten at the 'Underground Theatre' in the Village, Ernest Kohl, only 16 years of age, stepped onto the stage accompanied by an extremely talented cast to present to the world the soon to be SMASH MUSICAL THEATRE HIT: "AVANTGARDE" The show was so popular and played to so many sold out crowds that it was moved Uptown to the famous Broadway F-Sharp Theatre where it also had a fantastic run! Unfortunately, it was closed down due to new rules imposed by the Actors Equity Union which shut down several well known Broadway shows at the time. Closed down but not forgotten, AVANTGARDE has been pulled out of the vault by popular demand! The original cast recording has now been released and the video you are about to watch contains some NEW and very exciting HOT DANCE REMIXES for "AVANTGARDE" and "SAND FLEAS"! Watch for this show ... there may very well be a revival of this much loved and lauded theatrical musical masterpiece!

Also available is a SPECIAL BONUS TRACK by Peter Tanico of the "AVANTGARDE" title track.
