MONDAY 3/20

  • The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week as TWEC.COM
    broadcasts a taped audio concert starring Marshall Crenshaw. Marshall’s
    career has been long and full of diversity — among other things, he has
    been in movies, the road show version of Beatlemania, collaborated on a
    book about all the great and not-so-great rock & roll movies in history,
    had his songs covered by artists ranging from Bette Midler to the Gin
    Blossoms, and put together comps of his own for record companies. The
    concert starring this unique and talented performer will be held at the
    following times: Monday 3/20 at 4:00 PM EST, Wednesday 3/22 at 11:00 AM
    EST, Saturday 3/25 at 3:00 AM EST and Sunday 3/26 at 7:00 PM EST.

  • At 9:00 PM EST, the TWEC.COM and SOHH.com Online Hip-Hop Awards chat
    series continues with a live chat with The Murderers. The Murderers are
    the brainchild of renowned producer Irv Gotti, and is comprised of rappers
    Ja Rule, Black Child, Tah Murdah, Vita and O-1, with a special appearance
    by DMX. The Murderer’s debut album has been called “a solid gangsta
    effort.”

    TUESDAY 3/21

  • At 8:00 PM EST, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with up-and-coming young
    singers R Angels. The band was formed when the four members answered an
    advertisement in a New York Performing Arts newspaper. Thousands
    responded to the ad, but Gina, Lian, Vonnie and Dorothy were the lucky
    ladies chosen. Over the past five months, the girls have been performing
    around America, releasing their first single on the Stuart Little movie
    soundtrack.

    THURSDAY 3/23

  • At 9:00 PM EST, visit The Web’s Entertainment Center and chat live with
    legendary funk band the Bar-Kays as the United We Funk chat series
    continues. The Bar-Kays was formed in Memphis, TN in the mid-1960s.
    Their 1976 Mercury debut, Too Hot to Stop, was the first of 18 successful
    records, and the band found themselves rising to the top. Over 30 years
    later, they are continuing to perform live and create new music for their
    fans everywhere.

    SATURDAY 3/25

  • At 9:00 PM EST, be sure to tune in for a live webcast with Ryuichi
    Sakamoto, aired in conjunction with the Electric Factory and iCON
    Broadcasting. Ryuichi was the pioneer behind “Neo Geo,” which combines
    Asian and Western classical music with other global sounds and rhythms.
    Sakamoto released his first solo album, Thousand Knives of Asia, in 1982,
    but it was 1984’s B-2 Unit that best showed the eclectic and unique style
    that would continue to define his work. Throughout his career, Sakamoto
    has experienced great artistic and critical acclaim from fans and critics
    everywhere. In 1998, he released Discord, his first work of classical
    music.

    SUNDAY 3/26

  • At 4:00 PM EST, The Web’s Entertainment Center will chat live with
    up-and-coming teen sensations S Club 7. These teens from Britain got
    their start through a hit television series on BBC in the UK. It wasn’t
    long before the phenomenon spread to the United States, and S Club 7 now
    has one of the most popular shows on the Fox Family Channel. On top of
    that, S Club 7’s eponymous debut album hits stores on Tuesday 3/28.
    Everyone who orders their new album during the chat will receive free
    shipping on their order.
