Weekly Music-on-Ustream Update #1

Thanks to the ever-growing presence of musicians and artists on Ustream, I’m thinking of creating a weekly update on this here blog of upcoming events, past-event recaps, and all the lines of embeds in between. Task #1 is overhaul this boring title; leave me some suggestions in the comments, please, for the sake of the English language!

On to the updates: We’ve got two great in-radio performances coming up this week:

First up, Sophie’s Lounge has another great acoustic performance set-up from none other than John Mayer. Starting tomorrow, July 29, at 4 pm PDT / 7 pm EDT, John Mayer will play what YOU request. Get your vote on in Radio Sophie’s site here.

Next up, Good Charlotte have a performance lined up this Wednesday, July 30, Noon EDT / 9 AM PDT, over at XL 106.7 in Orlando. The same guys that brought you Red, Hot and Boom – one of the bigger Radio Station summer concerts to stream on Ustream — deliver their first in-studio performance; Good Charlotte fans will not want to miss this!

Finally, did you guys miss Switchfoot? After a week-and-change hiatus to tour, they’re back doing their studio webcam thing! Give them a warm welcome back!

In past news, two very cool artist webchats from last week, that you might have missed:

Nas Live Chat from his Hotel Room, moments after making his Fox News protest that made the Colbert Report (same clothes and everything… made you look!):
