MARS MTV: Unplugged On VyRT
Due to popular demand and some rather persistent tweets (you know who you are) we have decided to release the video for the award winning MTV Unplugged session we did not too long ago in NYC.
The plan was for the label to have it available on iTunes in time for the holidays but because of some technical snafus the deadline for delivery was missed and we were told it wouldn’t be ready until the end of January. No fun.
But, thankfully VyRT stepped in and offered to save the day.
For the very first time, VyRT is offering a Direct Download of the entire 30+ min show PLUS an extra unreleased version of ALIBI, some never before seen footage, all in glorious HD, AND on top of it – it’s here in time for the holidays as you requested! Ho Ho Ho!
This is a bit of an experiment so thanks for betting on us and trying out something new + different. We worked hard to make this extra special, I hope you enjoy it!
P.S. No commercials!!! :)

Weekly Picks From the Band
Read of the Week
When did people first start to wear jewelry or play music? When were cows domesticated and why do we feed their milk to our children? Where were the first cities and what made them succeed? Who invented math-or came up with money? The history of humanity is a history of invention and innovation, as we have continually created new items to use, to admire, or to leave our mark on the world. In this original and thought-provoking book, Neil MacGregor, director of the British Museum, has selected one hundred man-made artifacts, each of which gives us an intimate glimpse of an unexpected turning point in human civilization.

The Human Experience is a documentary film, produced by Grassroots Films, which tells the story of Jeffrey Azize and his travels, as he searches for answers to the question: what does it mean to be human?
