Awesome FREE Christian Music Events in Indiana!

If you are here on Spin: the Blog, I can only imagine that you probably like Christian music. (What a coincidence!  So do I!)

You may or may not live in the great state of Indiana, so if you don’t happen to be a Hoosier, then I feel for you in more ways than one; particularly because you are going to miss out on some awesome FREE Christian music events coming up in August!

Here are the details:

WORLD PULSE MUSIC FESTIVAL

The City Harmonic II

The City Harmonic!!!

WORLD PULSE MUSIC FESTIVAL–Seriously, this music festival has THE BEST line-up of any free Christian music festival I’ve ever heard of, and I’ve pretty much heard it all at this point. Coming to South Bend on Saturday, August 10th, 2013 the line-up includes, check this out: Tricia Brock (formerly of Superchick! Rock What You’ve Got! I Love her!!), Jason Castro (Uh, hello? Who doesn’t like Jason Castro? I think it would be impossible NOT to like Jason Castro!), the City Harmonic (I LOVE this band to the moon and back. Seriously, you have not lived until you’ve seen the City Harmonic in concert. Trust me on this!), Natalie Grant (No, I’m not kidding. I said ‘Natalie Grant’ and ‘Free’ in the same paragraph!!), Audio Adrenaline (Again, I am not joking. I paid $50 two months ago to see Audio Adrenaline and I thought it was a deal!), and…wait for it…SWITCHFOOT! Switchfoot! Can you believe that?

Like I said, this is THE line-up of free line-ups and it is coming to South Bend on Saturday, August 10th, 2013!

PLEASE NOTE you do HAVE TO HAVE a ticket to get in, but like I said, the tickets are free and still available over at iTickets.com. (For more information and/or additional places to pick up tickets, visit the festival’s website at http://www.worldpulsefestival.com). Of course, you will have to pay for parking ($25) and food (a complete list of what’s available and the prices are on the festival’s website).

I would happily pay these prices for parking and food any day that I get to see the City Harmonic play a live show, but when you throw in Tricia Brock, Jason Castro, Natalie Grant, Audio Adrenaline, and SWITCHFOOT to the mix…well, you know I’m gonna be there, and you should definitely be there too! In my opinion, this is going to be THE Christian Music event of the summer in Indiana so go grab some free tickets now while there are still some left!

CHRISTIAN MUSIC DAY AT THE INDIANA STATE FAIR

I swear I know nothing about these guys.  My son, however, is an expert on them!

CHRISTIAN MUSIC DAY at the INDIANA STATE FAIR–Again, another free event (although you do have to pay admission to the State Fair venue. Discount admission tickets are available at all Indiana Wal-Mart stores, CVS Pharmacies, and Indiana Farm Bureau Offices for $7. Kids under 5 are free! Gate admission is only $10.) The line-up for this festival taking place on Sunday, August 11th, 2013 from 2-9 pm is Brianna Caprice (I don’t have a clue who this is, but I intend to find out!), Jason Castro (he’s a busy guy this weekend!), Love & The Outcome (I’ve seen this duo and they are AMAZING!), some band called for King & Country (don’t know why anyone, particularly my 6 year old son Alex, would want to go see these guys. HA! 🙂 and Matthew West.

Matthew West’s kind of a slacker, but the rest of the line-up is decent. 

(Of course, I’m just kidding!  Matthew West is one of if not THE BEST entertainers in all of Christian Music.  You have to go see him if you haven’t yet!)

If those names aren’t enough to get you down to the State Fair on Sunday, August 11th, then I don’t know what will. (The World’s Largest Popcorn Ball? A 4,500 square foot barn made out of glass? An outdoor ice skating rink in Indiana in August? Just a few suggestions!)

I’ll be at both of these festivals the weekend of August 10th and I hope to see you there! Should be a rockin’ time 🙂  Let’s just hope the weather is not too sweltering hot…if I have another weekend where the temps get up like they did at LifeFest when my nail polish literally melted off of my nails, I don’t know if I’ll live to tell the tale!

Love and the Outcome Debuts Video for He is With Us

Love this duo, which is probably no surprise since I love all this Canadian, but really I do. I had the chance to see them perform and spend a little time with them when they performed for Faith & Family Night in New Haven back in June, and let me tell you, they were a big hit! The new video is great as well! Enjoy 🙂

FROM PRESS RELEASE:

Nashville, TN – (July 12, 2013) – Word Entertainment’s Love & The Outcome is joining forces with multiple partners to unveil the music video for their debut single, “He Is With Us.” Today the video can be seen exclusively at Newreleasetuesday.com followed with premieres on Monday at both K-LOVE and the Canadian outlet, 100 Huntley Street’s Crossroads 360. On Tuesday, July 16, the video will be made available for purchase on iTunes. Filmed in Toronto, Canada, “He Is With Us” intersperses dynamic performance footage of Jodi and Chris with Love & The Outcome’s signature graffiti text to create an engaging video that underscores the song’s powerful lyrics. The duo’s debut single has skyrocketed into the Top 20 since its release in May with Billboard including them in its “Bubbling Under” section on new and noteworthy acts. “He Is With Us” is the lead single from Love & The Outcome’s self-titled debut album due out on August 27.

For Chris and Jodi, Love & The Outcome is both a name and a literal life story. The duo sold their Winnipeg condo en route to a high-stakes musical road trip that has seen them criss-cross Canada, Liberia, the Philippines and China, winning over fans both emotionally and spiritually with their blend of effervescent pop. After signing to Word Records in 2012, they retreated to the mountains of Washington state to record their powerful debut, produced by Seth Mosley along with Ben Glover (for King & Country) and David Garcia (TobyMac). Spring 2013 saw the two back on the road for the “Hundred More Years Tour” supporting Francesca Battistelli and The Afters over 27 dates.

Love & The Outcome to Release Self-Titled Debut Aug. 27

So, I’ve actually seen Love & The Outcome open for the Sidewalk Prophets and I can pretty much sum up their entire 15 minute set in 1 word:  AWESOME!

I loved it, and I have been told by countless others as recently as yesterday how much they loved them, too.  So, with this in mind, today’s news is pretty gosh darn exciting!  My 6 year old is still wearing his L&TO t-shirt faithfully and listening to his sampler CD/EP on repeat a solid month after meeting Chris & Jodi, so I’m happy that they are mega-talented and ‘He Is With Us’ is an amazing song (because we all know how Alex gets when he becomes a fan of musical duo, right?  Or do I really need to bring up for King & Country…again?  🙂

LOVE & THE OUTCOME TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM ON AUGUST 27 FROM WORD ENTERTAINMENT

 

Duo Reveals Cover and Track Listing for Love & The Outcome

 

Lead Single, “He Is With Us,” jumps to Top 25 on

Billboard’s Christian Songs chart

Nashville, TN – (June 26, 2013) – Word Entertainment’s Love & The Outcome, recently included in Billboard’s “Bubbling Under” feature on new and noteworthy acts, are gearing up to release their self-titled debut album on August 27. The 11-track album recalls the highs and lows of the journey vocalist Jodi King and bass player/vocalist Chris Rademaker have braved since departing their homeland of Canada, risking it all to pursue their musical dreams. That Jodi and Chris are also husband/wife makes the story that much more vivid. The album features the duo’s debut single, “He Is With Us,” which skyrocketed to the Top 25 on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart and No. 10 on Canada’s CCRC chart in a little over a month since its release (iTunes link here). On Tuesday, Love & The Outcome launched an online campaign here by asking fans to share their own story about how He is with them by tweeting with the tag #HeIsWithUs.

 

Co-Produced by Seth Mosley (Newsboys), Ben Glover (for KING & COUNTRY), David Garcia (TobyMac) and Jeff Pardo (Matthew West), Love & The Outcome balances Chris’ rock sensibilities with Jodi’s love of melodic pop artists. In addition, the duo’s influence is also revealed in the lyrics as they had a hand in writing each of the 11 tracks on the album.

 

“We want these songs to become the soundtrack to people’s lives, and hope that the truth of these songs goes beyond the thrill of the live show to plant a seed in people’s hearts: to go for the things that they might be afraid to go for and join this joyful revolution,” said King. “That’s the whole point. A life that requires faith is worth living, and a life on the edge is one where you live hand-in-hand and arm-in-arm with God. That’s what we’re living for.”

  1. When We Love
  2. He Is With Us
