Apollo Nida going to jail? Plea deal deadline looms for Phaedra Parks’ husband - Bobo Records

Apollo Nida will be seen on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” when the cast gets together for the reunion show, but his big news is off the set. The husband of Phadrea Parks has a deadline that could decide his fate of the future. According to Enstarz on Friday, the reality star has until April 25 to decide whether he will take a plea deal surrounding alleged charges of identity theft and other charges. The decision of what Apollo Nida might do has fans curious as his time is running out before a trial would be started and a plea deal offer taken away. LALate is reporting on Thursday that the reality star has been considering his options. The prosecutor of the case has a strong reputation to get convictions and it might be the best option for the reality star to take a plea deal. The story line on the reality show between Apollo Nida and Kenya Moore definitely has been making headlines as well. Phaedra Parks has called it “Text-gate” and it relates to text messages sent between Kenya and Apollo quite a while ago. Kenya has been intensely keeping the issue alive and has offered more drama between all three cast members as the season of “RHOA” has played out. However, Radar Online reported that Parks put her difference aside when Moore’s dog died. What will happen to Apollo Nida? While most fans assume there will be a decision by the end of the week, few think the alleged charges will go to trial Even so, Nida has two children and a wife to take care of so his final decision doesn’t just impact him, but also his family. Apollo Nida will be seen on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and everyone assumes that Andy will be asking about the status of his criminal case.

What to expect at your very first show - Bobo Records

What to expect at your very first show By Guest Blogger March 19, 2014{ 2 Comments } shutterstock 25371889 What to expect at your very first show[This article was written by guest contributor Corey Dieckman of the bands Honduran and Great Wilderness.] Life outside the basement It’s your first show as a band and you are really excited. Maybe even nervous. You’ll play every song twice as fast. Your fingers will cramp up. But you do have one advantage; no one is expecting you to be good. Chances are the crowd knows you. Assuming you have friends, they are out there watching. They’ve seen you at work and at the bar, explaining the different kinds of doom metal, or using phrases like ‘austere sonics’ to describe garage rock albums. Now it’s time for your art to shine, to put on your headband and your sleeveless tee and really give them the what-for. Eminem famously said ‘you only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow.’ That’s not entirely true, because assuming you choose to keep performing and creating art, a chance to blow can come at any time. As your crowd grows and word spreads, you will have multiple chances to make a first impression. Still, it’s best to hone your craft early, starting with your first show. Be punctual Getting to your gig early has its benefits. Nothing worse than showing up and having to load right onto the stage and play. An early arrival means time to get situated, to meet the soundman, the door guy, the bartender, the promoter, etc., and establish when you’ll be playing and for how long. Get your sound right If there’s a soundcheck, really take advantage of it. A long, narrow brick barroom with high ceilings is not going to sound the same as a soundproofed garage. Don’t settle, there is a soundman there for a reason. Louder is not always better in the case of adjustments. There’s not enough time to get into the shapes of different sound waves, but it’s easy to overdo it on bass and create a muddy, farty sound. Send a friend whose ear you trust to the back of the room, play a song, and watch for the thumbs up. Keep it short It’s a good rule of thumb to leave the audience wanting more, not less. 45 minutes is too long, 15 minutes is probably too short. 20-27 minutes is a good approximation of how long you should be up there. The people watching you won’t get burned out and slink back to the bar. It’s Wednesday night and everybody’s missing their TV shows to be here, so only play as long as an episode of Parks & Recreation to accommodate their attention spans. Be appreciative javascript:void(0); It’s not supposed to be a Grammy speech, but typically bands will acknowledge all the people that went into making a show happen, as well as any other acts sharing the bill. Really try to kiss ass here, so you get invited back to the venue or to be a supporting on future shows. —— These days everyone is in band and/or has experienced some kind of public performance, so no need to be nervous; no one is expecting anything. Practice everything until you can play it backwards. If you’re going for the aloof, nonchalant performance, practice pretending that you don’t care about what you’re playing. It might be good to invest in a full-length mirror for the practice space, one where you can practice your hair tornados or your disenchanted swagger. Harass bands in your scene via Facebook until you get that supporting slot; it doesn’t hurt to ask, unless you’re blackballed for being a nuisance. It is hard sometimes to recognize a chance that is meant for blowing, but sometimes that opportunity comes once in a lifetime and you find yourself in the moment, with only one shot.
