Ke$ha and Mike Posner Get Crazy — In the Mix with HK
Ke$ha is currently on tour promoting her second studio album Warrior and with all the hits this crazy kid has put out you know I needed to check it out. All the open sexuality and craziness that follows Ke$ha everywhere was certainly present on stage along with a full band, dancers and the perfect blend of sonic and visual mayhem. Oh, and let's not forget a sold out crowd adorned with glitter, face paint and head bands. Imagine the 60's hippie movement colliding with the pop EDM world and that's what you get at a Ke$ha show.
Mike Posner opened up for her and primed the crowd with his own hits - "Cooler Than Me", "Bow Chicka Wow Wow", "Please Don't Go" and the monster Justin Bieber hit "Boyfriend". For those who don't know, Mike wrote that monster hit for Justin! This was without a doubt the best show I've seen in this size venue. I went expecting a more scaled-down version of the tour, but that was not the case. Even before walking in I saw four tour buses and three semis and thought, "This is gonna be crazy!"
That craziness and sonic mayhem continues this weekend In The Mix with HK. With Labor Day Weekend around the corner and State Fairs popping up like weeds, the pressure was on to lock myself in the lab and crank out a bevy of new eargasms for my Mix 94.9 listeners. You better fasten your seat belts cause I've got the brand new Katy Perry - "Roar", a hot extended remix on Lady Gaga's - "Applause", and a new spin on Avicci's country EDM smoker that's guaranteed to "Wake Me Up". One Direction's Movie is about to open and I've opened up their current single "Best Song Ever". The party wouldn't be complete without new joints from Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, Paramore, Tegan & Sara, Emblem 3 and Capital Cities.
So no matter where you are this weekend, pump up the volume and get In The Mix with HK.
