Skrillex has teamed up with Cirque du Soleil for a Las Vegas residency at a new club called Light.
I want it be distinct to the LIGHT club because the configuration is so customizable, it's fucking crazy. That's the thing about the club, too: they can do anything, so it's how you maximize the dynamic of a great show with all their fucking bells and whistles and all of their budgets and resources to do anything.

Today we are streaming a brand-new song from California-based pop-punk act Point Of View. The band plays an old-school style of the genre, similar to bands like Green Day and NOFX, with a lot of emphasis on big hooks amidst a raw core sound. Check out "Home" from the band's upcoming five-song EP, Burner, on Point Of View's AP.net Profile or in the replies. Burner will be out March 29 via Hella Mad Records.
