Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance

The one and only Lady Gaga performed with 300 drones at the Super Bowl.  A lot of people had questions as to how this performance would go, who she would bring out, and if it would be politically motivated. 

The performance was executed expertly, from the drones that were used to dance in the sky and even form an American flag at one point to fantastically choreographed dances. With no other artists joining her on stage it was a great mixture of songs old and new. Flying around on guide wires, a few costume changes, she presented herself masterfully.

The thing other than her vocal presence that really amplified my respect for her as an artist was the fact that she did not go on any sort of political rant or statements. Instead she knew that she had the opportunity to perform and really bringing people together allowing them to forget about their issues if even for just one night.

By far, hands-down, the best halftime show in recent memory.

Where did this come from? Where are we going?

The name You Make The Scene originally came up interview with Ryan Key of Yellowcard A couple years back. We were talking about the pop punk scene and how the fans have always kind of evolved with the music that was emerging and really help to keep it alive. So from that I came up with the idea that while the scene is bigger than any one person each person contributes to it and with that they are able to make their music scene something they can be proud of and a community that people want to be a part of.

The vision for the brand is to be a resource for fans to come to to see what's going on with their favorite band, to see photographs from those shows, to read interviews with their favorite artist. Ultimately I don't want to restrict it to a single genre of music, but instead be all inclusive. The long-term goal with it will be that we would even have a entertainment side where there will be a discussion about movies and ideally getting to the point where there would be interviews with actors and directors and things of that nature both on a small local scale and major Hollywood as well.
