Fix the Fox - Benefit Concert

At the epicenter of the music scene in Utah, there is Velour Live Music Gallery. And the genius and dear friend behind Velour is Corey Fox. Other than hosting all of our shows, he has also done the art direction for many music videos of Utah based artists (as well as many well known bands outside of Utah). Corey has helped all of us and now it's our turn to help him. You see, right now he could really use a kidney. He is on a long wait list and he is at a point where time is of the essence. 

On April 29th and 30th Velour will be hosting a two-night benefit concert featuring some of its most successful artists. Neon Trees and Imagine Dragons will take the stage Friday April 29th. Tickets go on sale April 23rd from 2-5 pm at Velour for $300. Saturdays performance will include The Moth & the Flame and Fictionist (Tickets are on sale now here.) Ticket sales will contribute to Corey's surgery costs and to help support Velour while closed this summer. 

Monetary donations are also extremely helpful at this time. Read how you can help here.

We love you Corey!

First step in creating these fun easter eggs is to paint your eggs with a base color. We chose black! If you are using plastic eggs, there are some chalkboard eggs that already come black and can help speed up the process.

When the base color has dried, use the sponge brush to add your other layers of color on the egg (giving each layer some time to dry). We chose to sponge a layer of hot pink paint on to the egg!

Undercover Music Video Shoot

Are you guys ready for another music video from Hive Riot? We know we are! We spent Saturday on set filming the music video for our song Undercover. The video will be featuring some amazing local dancers. A big thank you to our producers and directors Jed Wells and Gavin Bentley, our crew, and all of our incredible extras who came to help out. We had such a great time dancing the day away (in fact we are a little sore from it all)! Stay tuned for the official release! 

Concert Review

Last Saturday night Hive Riot held our first concert ever! We celebrated the release of our new album with a completely sold out show at Velour in Provo UT. We were very privileged to be able to preform for all of our local fans. We had such a fun and incredible night! Doors to Velour opened at 8PM where treats, hive riot face paints, and a funky photo booth greeted fans while we anxiously waited for the show to start. Coral Bones kicked of the night with an amazing opening performance. It was an exhilarating experience and so surreal to see all our work come together to share this performance with everyone. We loved getting to meet so many of our fans in attendance after the show. Thank you all for a wild and wonderful night, and for being a part of our journey. We couldn't have done it without you!
