Today, we have two acoustic performances …

Here Is The Official Trailer For ‘House Of Cards’ Season 3

Following several teasers in recent weeks, Netflix has released the official trailer for the third season of House Of Cards.

When we last left the smartest family in Washington, Francis Underwood was finally preparing to take his place in the oval office. Of course, this followed a series of dark and legitimately illegal events, not to mention the deaths of several main characters many believe would be cornerstones of the series for years to come. The first trailer for season 3 offers very little dialogue, but it delivers a thrilling compilation of dramatic moments that will leave you hitting …

The Weekend Classic have been on our radar since the release of their debut double single at the tail-end of summer. Their unique take on the border between pop-punk and pop-rock offers catchy hooks and infectious melodies that no one can shake. We have done everything in our power to keep you updated on their plans up to this point, and today we are thrilled to share the world premiere of their video for “Fireworks.”

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Outsides – “The Ones”

Outsides is an electronic-pop outfit straight out of the heart of America. After performing at Lollapalooza, and gaining some local recognition in Chicago, the band’s frontman, Tim Ellis, moved to his beloved Kansas City, where he grew up and has been attempting to gain notoriety and recognition nationally with his take on electronic music.

After seeing the live performance, we’ve no doubt that Outsides has the capacity and ability to appeal to the masses that the likes of M83 and Passion Pit have in the past.

UTG has been given the privilege of premiering Outsides’ new lyric video for their …
