"Coming off one of 2012's best albums and maybe the year's best video (Until the Quiet Comes), Flying Lotus is blasting full speed into the future with his Brainfeeder label. The busiest man in music produced Thundercat's new album, scored the Jay-Z-produced film An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, and is working on new material under his own name and his alter-ego Captain Murphy, not to mention that his live shows are completely bananas. Pick up Flying Lotus tickets now!"
Born deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle and raised by a troupe of roving Ranchera music players, Andrés is a diehard Boston sports fans who celebrated the 2004 ALCS victory of Red Sox over the Yankees as the sun rose on the Mediterranean. When not developing content for Ticket Liquidator, he can be found enjoying beer, baseball, disc golf and bull fighting. He once shot himself in the thumb with a B.B. gun in an attempt to discern if the gun was firing correctly. It was.
"The NBA Playoffs are the culmination of a year's worth of basketball, and the on-the-court excitement is like nothing else. This year's action looks to be intense, and NBA Playoff tickets are going fast!"

"How can you go wrong with a musical with songs by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein (Hairspray, Newsies)? Kinky Boots picked up an incredible 13 Tony Award nominations this year, so the buzz around the show is incredible. If you can get to Broadway, don't miss this one!"
Ian is an international playboy with properties and girlfriends on several continents. He designs nuclear power stations in his spare time (apart from weekends, when he runs a spiritual temple called The Greenhouse of Love) and prides himself on his homemade "Action cookies"; cookies that depict dramatic scenes from famous movies. His personal faves are "The Augustus Gloop Heart Attack" and "No Cookie For Old Men", a unique creation with a pressurized air pocket in the middle that has injured some consumers. He breeds giant tortoises and plans to outlive all of them. Unless he dies.
"The British electro-popsters are still around and heading out on tour! I chose Depeche Mode as my May pick because I am old enough to remember the effect their anthemic “Just Can’t Get Enough” had on the singles charts in 1981 following their previous single, “New Life.” They went on to record numerous, more exploratory songs, but “IJCGE” remains one of the best recognized tunes from the entire 1980s. Recommended!"
Though she can’t literally juggle, Stacey, multi-tasker extraordinaire, visualizes tossing around flaming swords as she tackles her to do list. In a former life, Stacey was a stage manager and sometimes set painter for a local theater. Since retiring her headset, she sees more shows than she techs. When she's not banging out website feature specifications for TL, Stacey
blogs works seriously on her own writing. More importantly, she does her part to contribute to the Internet's wealth of funny cat photos.
"With Mother’s Day coming up this month, I’ve been thinking about the music legends of my parents’ youth who are still touring. Decades later they can catch The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, or one of the most successful singer/songwriters from one of the most iconic bands of all time, Paul McCartney. As someone who still has her collection of original Beatles albums (yes, on vinyl), I’m sure Mom would approve."
Toni likes to say it's easier to list the jobs she hasn't tried. From lifeguard to lounge singer, bartender to bill collector, door-to-door salesperson to business analyst--Toni has been there and done that. Then, she decided that what she really wanted to be was a writer. Be careful what you say and do around this one—you might end up in her novel!
"What do Ian Anderson, Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker, Gregg Allman and Bonnie Raitt have in common? They all list Joe Bonamassa as one of the best guitarists on the planet. This guy makes music you can feel from your toes to your hairline. Playing American blues-rock with a strong world influence and more-than-occasional infusions of funk, Bonamassa is a performer that shouldn’t be missed."
