If you haven’t heard of “The One and Only PPL MVR”, you are missing out. With their awesome yeti/abominable snowman costumes, their distorted voice, and their total commitment to character (they inaudibly grunt throughout their interviews), these guys rock! However given the overnight status these guys have attained (they have only been on social media for less than a year and are already signed to Elektra Records), many have questioned whether these guys are another famous band in disguise. One Reddit user did his research and put together a very convincing argument that PPL MVRs are really New York alternative rock band Brand New. With new evidence that we uncovered, we agree!
Milwaukee’sSummerfest 2015, the World’s Largest Music Festival, is over half way done and it has definitely delivered. Unlike many other premiere music festivals, Summerfest (which runs until July 5th) brings an especially diverse list of performers to Milwaukee’s lakefront every year, creating for a festival where you can see Kanye West (who performed in 2011) share the same stage as Peter Gabriel and Kid Rock. So to get things started for The Early Registration’s first year at Summerfest, we had to catch a wide variety of acts all festival long.
