For the past nine years, Miami has played host to the Groove Cruise- the largest fully chartered dance music festival on water.  Throughout that run, the Groove Cruise has embarked on 19 unique experiences and has even tempted the waters of the Pacific Ocean with smaller excursions from San Diego and Los Angeles.  But this September 27th-30th, the Groove Cruise comes to Los Angeles with bigger aspirations, a bigger lineup, and the biggest cruise liner they’ve ever had set sail from California.  Groove Cruise LA 2013 will be the first fully chartered excursion from this side of the country and it packs a lineup of some of EDM’s biggest stars.  With stops in Catalina and Mexico, the Groove Cruise is the most unique dance music experience on the West Coast this year- and we haven’t even gotten to the lineup yet!  September 27th is fast approaching and we have all the Groove Cruise coverage you need right here.

Live Review: Queens of the Stone Age @ Jimmy Kimmel Live 7/29

With their highly anticipated performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago just around the corner, these desert boys seemed primed shake up the Midwest. Check out the full review after the jump… (more…)
