Thank You goes out to the wonderful people at VEVO for inviting Halfstack to "VEVO LIFT LIVE 2013 presented by McDonald's".The concert was an intimate and exclusive concert held in Chicago at ParkWest on August 1.  Lift Live 2013’s hottest rising stars were The Neighbourhood, HAIM and Krewella. The concert will be aired across VEVO, the world's leading all- premium music video and entertainment platform, later in August.


The Neighbourhood or The NBHD is a California based Alternative rock band that formed in August 2011. The band is composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott, and drummer Bryan Sammis. In early 2013, The Neighbourhood announced that their debut album, I Love You., was to be released on April 23, 2013, via Columbia Records. The video for the first official single from I Love You., "Sweater Weather", was released on March 5, 2013. It's already at 4.6 millions hits on YouTube.

HAIM is a band comprised of sisters Este , Danielle, and Alana Haim, along with drummer Dash Hutton. HAIM's sound has been described as " 70's-reto -80's-folk-meets-90's-R&B". The band has not released a full album, but they played at the 2013 Glastonbury festival, they earned a top ranking in BBC's Sound of 2013 poll, and signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation management group. The sisters all play guitar and even did a drum set, which knocked the crowd over at the end of the show.  HAIM is a band you will hear on every radio station with their single "Forever" in the near future.


The grand slam of the show was Chicago's own Krawell. The group consists of Jahan Yousaf, Yasmine Yousaf and Rain Man. Their EP, "Play Hard" was released on June 18, 2012 exclusively on Beatport and by an iTunes release on June 26, 2012. Their musical style is everything from dubstep, moombahton, and house. Krawella " Live for the Night" is taking over club all over the world. The group is in the studio now and plans to release their first full-length album "Get Wet" on Columbia Records in September 2013.
