Nerds Invade Emory
Okay, so this is kind of old news but there were problems downloading the story. Enjoy! It was definitely a site to see at the NERD show at Emory on Thursday night. Although the show was a well-kept secret intended for the students and faculty of Emory it looked as if a small buzz got out into the open. A crowd of damp and excited coeds began to chant ‘nerd’ that hinted on to the patience that was being lost. Within a few moments the band appears on stage followed by star front-man Pharrell, which caused the crowd to go crazy. As the show started, the sea of excited college kids proceeded to push to the front of the stage causing the isles of eager young women to fall onto the barricades. As the crowd stood at the front of the stage with mesmerized looks across their faces, there was no turning back.
The crowd was hype as ever with slews of people crowd surfing over groups of out of control mosh pits. NERD performed older hits such as ‘Lap Dance’ to their newest hits ‘Spaz’ and ‘Sooner or Later’. My favorite part of the show was the audience participation and Pharrell encouraging young people to be involved in art as much as possible. Despite almost losing my life by being hurled in to a concrete wall, the NERD show at Emory was one experience that I will never forget in all of my years as a concert goer. So next time NERD comes through Atlanta, be sure to check them out. I will warn you to not wear your best shoes, but it’s all worth it.
Chief Pussycat DollNicole Scherzinger says her long-awaited solo album “may come more sooner than later,” but after two years of projected release dates and delays she’s not about to set one now. “I think it’ll just come out when it wants to come out, on its own,” Scherzinger tells Billboard.com. “I’m still working on my album, and I’m very excited. I’m a relentless perfectionist. I get one chance to put out a first (solo) album, so when the right time comes I will put it out.” Scherzinger has been working on the album, tentatively titled “My Name Is Nicole,” since 2006. She’s released several singles — “Whatever U Like,” “Baby Love,” “Puakenikeni” and “Supervillian” — while several of the other songs considered for the project turned up on the Dolls’ 2008 released “Doll Domination.”
The current incarnation of the album, she says, “is just in the works and in talks and in the writing process. I haven’t started recording yet.” She hopes to hit the studio in the summer, after the Dolls finish their run opening for Britney Spears and then tour Europe again. “I’ll be excited to get back with old friends — Will.i.am., Timbaland,” says Scherzinger. She also plans to work with good pal Lady Gaga and hopes to continue a new association with Academy Award-winning Indian composer A.R. Rahman, who collaborated with Scherzinger and the Dolls on an English version of his “Slumdog Millionaire” track “Jai Ho!,” now subtitled “You Are My Destiny,” which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. Nicole worked with The Neptunes in 2006 and did the track „I M.I.S.S. You“ for her solo album “My Name Is Nicole“.

According to NERD’s Twitter Site, NERD will Re-Release Seeing Sounds with “Soldier feat. Santigold & Lil’ Wayne” and with a couple more new tracks. I just hope we will be able to hear the Left-Overs off SeeingSounds such as „Out Of My Head“. The Re-Release was actually been planned for last years christmas according to Shae.
