VIdeo of the Day: The Sevateem

Cool new band alert! You may have caught wind of The Sevateem's debut track/video "Blast" last month, and hot on its heels is the release of "City," a catchy electronic track with sugar coated vocals and fiery lyrics. Of course, we'd expect nothing less from the husband-wife duo of Christian Erickson and Janey Winterbauer, who made names for themselves with critically acclaimed local band, Astronaut Wife, as well as numerous other projects . The question is, when do we get to see The Sevateem play live?

Hello, hello and welcome to the latest edition of Weekend Twitterings!
Get Cryphy celebrates 4 year anniversary!
Take note, single ladies.
Oh, oh.
Poor Stephen.
So, yeah, the show is apparently not that great.

Not bad, not bad.
How rude.
Ha ha!
Wow, to be a fly on the wall at this party.
Mom wanted to tweet about the Oscars too!

Watch the Wolves attempt to do karaoke to NSync

We're not sure why this exists, but we're thankful it does: the Wolves (attempting) to do karaoke to N*Sync's "Tearing Up My Heart." Stick to your day jobs, boys. A befuddled Nikola Pekovic asking, "You've got some Serbian songs?" Priceless.

Mall of America Gets an Interactive Google Map

Today, the Mall of America became one of the first US retailers to get an indoor Google interactive map. This pretty cool feature helps you navigate your way around the megamall. Can't find Cinnabon (we know you love it)? Just use your smart phone and ta-dah! The only downfall? At the moment, indoor maps are only available to Android mobile users.

Here's a video demo:

What is Happening at the Uptown Theater?

It's under massive construction! Liz Bastian stopped by the theater today and snapped this photo. It looks depressing, sure, but they are putting brand new luxury seating! Can you say upgrade?

Weekend Twitterings

Prince, music, general debauchery; that's what this weekend was all about.

That's the best kind of night.
Oh, this one is pretty good, too.
I know, right??
Right on.
Katie behaved badly this weekend.

This was positively hilarious.
This is the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. No wonder he blacked out.
Your Revolution tweets dominated Sunday night on Twitter.
Sounds delicious.
