They say that bad things happen in three’s. Well, I think the same can be said of good things. Because what I have for you in this post in a merging of three “things” that I love to share with you: Free downloads. Brands that support live music (and help us get to shows). And music networks that make it easy to feed our addiction to live music.
I’ll be completely honest and tell you that I haven’t had a chance to get to know the music of Paramore all that well beyond what I’ve heard on the radio. And no, I wasn’t paid by Honda to gush about my car. This post, like everything we share with you on Live Fix, is the result of pure inspiration, appreciation and wonder.
That said, this isn’t a review of Paramore’s music. This post is simply about YOU.
I’m excited to hear from you and other Paramore fans.
To get the Paramore conversation started, I’d like to share with you a free download of “Careful” that comes courtesy of the MOG Music Network (more on MMN in a moment).
What Drives Live Fix?
Paramore has been headlining the Honda Civic Tour that wraps up this month. And after watching them on the VMA’s last night and seeing the Paramore tweets surge during their performance, I’m curious to dive a bit deeper into their music to see what I can discover about the connection between the band and Paramore fans.
The next reason I’m pumped to write this post is because I actually drive a Honda (not the slick and stylish one in the Honda promo photos, but a less fancy and more practical one, but a dependable and trusty vehicle nonetheless).
And as I was writing this post, I was amazed because I had a moment where I realized how big a role my Honda has played in my love for live music. It might not be able to write or take a photo, but still it’s been a key member of the Live Fix team.
And like a loyal concert buddy and steady beat that you can always count on to keep you groovin, my car gotten us to and from hundreds of show over the years.
Most of all, my car has been a perfect place for the all-important post-show reflection and unforgettable concert road trips to many music festivals.
No, I’m not trying to sound like a cheesy car commercial. And in case you’re wondering, no, Honda didn’t tell me to write this post.
Plain and simple, I’m just happy to say good things about a brand. And whenever I can share good things about my experience with their products in the context of live music, I will certainly do so. And hopefully the good vibes get passed along here and on the Honda Civic Tour Facebook Page.
What Is The MOG Music Network?
Okay, now it’s time to tell you a little bit about MMN.
First starters, it’s been a pleasure to be a part of the MOG Music Network for the last year, especially when they offer free downloads for the Live Fix community to enjoy.
There are a lot of similar music subscription sites out there, and so far, I’m a big fan of MOG’s network, especially their new Android and iPhone app. I’ve also enjoyed the feeling of being a part of community of other music bloggers and it’s been a pleasure share their writings with you in post and via the MOG headline banner in the left side column. You can check out more about MOG here. And you read about them in the New York Times.
