Congratulations to Lima A, the winner of last Friday's hot ticket giveaway here on Up Your Alley. She'll be heading to the opening night of Agokwe tonight at The Cultch.
Have you heard PNAU's new song "The Truth"? The electronic duo is describing it as “a bit Bowie, a bit Bono and a bit Burt Bacharach”... and a smidge of Vampire Weekend if you ask me.

The X-Factor semifinals in the UK this past Saturday produced some pretty impressive videos. One of the semifinalists -- Rebecca Ferguson -- turned out a killer version of "Show Me Love" (originally by Robyn S).
This girl's voice is like smoke. LOVE IT!
Cher Lloyd's rendition of Britney Spears' "Everytime" was also pretty impressive:
Glad she's made it to the final!
