In a pair of initiatives announced Wednesday, Jagermeister and a group of artists working with Brompton bikes — including Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, Foo Fighters, Dinosaur Jr. and others — are stepping up to help the National Independent Venue Association, the “Save Our Stages” effort and Crew Nation, which support indie music venues and affected workers who have been impacted by the pandemic for the past 13 months.
Jägermeister — which provided huge support by donating $1 million to NIVA’s Emergency Relief Fund in December — and NIVA are launching “Our Stages, Our Stories,” which aims to spotlights industry staff (bartenders, audio engineers, door staff, ticket-takers, the DJs, and more) as they look back on the past year and ahead to the possibility of nightlife’s return. The collection of vignettes highlights independent venues and members of their staff in seven markets across the U.S. including Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, New Orleans, Austin, Chicago, and Atlanta.
Watch the ‘Our Stages, Our Stories’ :30 second launch clip HERE, and follow @JägermeisterUSA for additional stories over the coming months.
In addition to the stories from these markets, artists from across the U.S. have signed on to help spread the message including veteran rapper Kurtis Blow, singer Big Freedia, R&B artist Dani Leigh and more.
“Jägermeister is built on the shoulders of the live music business and its unsung heroes- the bartenders, sound engineers, artists, bouncers, and staff that bring these venues to life,” says Chris Peddy, Chief Marketing Officer at Mast – Jägermeister U.S. “As independent venues and their staff begin to look towards the future, it’s more imperative than ever that we continue to support the return of nightlife though our global #savethenight initiative.” For more information on Jägermeister’s Save the Night initiative, visit save-the-night.com. Fans can also donate to help Save Our Stages via saveourstages.com/jagermeister.
In a separate but related development, a wide variety of artists are teaming up with Brompton bikes to auction off custom bicycles
The star line-up involved in the project includes: Foo Fighters, Rise Against, Radiohead (art director), Phoebe Bridgers, LCD Soundsystem, Khruangbin, Nathan East, Dinosaur Jr, Oh Wonder, Underworld, Sub Pop (label), Enrique Iglesias, Neko Case.
Each group added their own unique design to the bikes, which will be offered for live bidding May 28 through June 12, 2021, by Greenhouse Auctions, an online auction platform designed to empower artists and promote diversity, with 100% percent of the proceeds going to benefit Crew Nation
The campaign released details of the Radiohead, Oh Wonder, Rise Against, and Dinosaur Jr. Brompton designs, which you can see at www.brompton.com/crewnation, with the rest of the bike line-up being revealed at @bromptonbicycle on Instagram and Facebook in the weeks leading up to the auction.
“I’m ridiculously happy to have been asked to design a Brompton bike that’ll be auctioned to raise money and awareness for Crew Nation,” said Stanley Donwood, the artist who has created Radiohead’s record artwork since the ’90s and designed the custom Brompton M6L for auction.
“We’re lucky to count a number of musicians and their crews as dear friends, and over the years Brompton bikes have found a moving home on tour buses and been ridden by crews while out on the road,” said Tevis Jory, Music Project Lead and North American Sales Manager, Brompton. “While artists, crews and the people who bring music to life have seen their livelihoods disappear, the bike industry has been booming, which led us to ask, ‘How can Brompton help?’”
“Thank you to Brompton for asking us to be a part of their campaign to raise funds for Crew Nation… We love our crew and we love our Brompton bikes…” Ed O’Brien – Radiohead

Apple TV+Prince Harry’s son, Archie, is featured in the trailer for his new documentary with Oprah Winfrey.While it must be said at the outset that Archie is utterly adorable, the move to include Archie in the film could trigger a new round of criticism over the Sussexes’ perceived double standards when it comes to their privacy.The trailer for Harry’s new show, which is called The Me You Can’t See, was released Monday morning.Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Should Drop Their Titles, Royal Sources SayThe show itself, which is described as a multipart documentary, will hit screens via Apple TV+ on Friday.The dropping of the official trailer was announced on Harry and Meghan’s website, Archewell, which said it “offers a glimpse into the diverse stories of mental health and emotional well-being that will be highlighted in the new documentary series.”The show will see Harry and Oprah “join forces to guide honest discussions about mental health and emotional well-being while opening up about their personal journeys and struggles,” the website said.It added that the docuseries would feature “high-profile guests and everyday people—including singer, songwriter, and actress Lady Gaga, Syrian refugee Fawzi, DeMar DeRozan of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, author and counselor Ambar, and many others—sharing their stories of living with the challenges of mental health issues and addressing their emotional well-being.”The trailer at one stage shows a tearful Oprah saying: “It’s just something I accepted.” Oprah has previously opened up about how she was raped as a child.There is a clear suggestion that Harry will talk in detail about his own traumatic childhood: In one clip he is shown looking emotional at the camera before it cuts to footage of him at the funeral of his mother, Princess Diana.There will likely be some trepidation at Buckingham Palace that Harry will use the film to renew his criticisms of his father, Prince Charles.Last week, speaking about Charles, he told a podcast: “He’s treating me the way that he was treated.” He also said: “There’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. As parents we should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’”It seems unlikely the new series will lead to any royal reconciliation. In another clip, Harry appears to be on a video call when he is joined by wife Meghan, who is wearing a T-shirt with the words “Raising The Future” emblazoned on it. (The shirt is by Mère Soeur, a “U.K. lifestyle brand that empowers women and celebrates sisterhood.”)Suggesting that the impact of the pandemic will be a key thread in the show, Harry is seen saying, “The results of this year will be felt for decades, for kids, families, husbands, wives…”The trailer then cuts to footage of Archie on Meghan’s knee. Archie is wearing a white baby suit, and Meghan is holding a large rectangular object which looks like a kid-proofed tablet (or perhaps a baby mirror).The inclusion of Archie in the trailer, and presumably the series itself, is likely to spark criticism of the couple for double standards when it comes to their family privacy, in much the same way that Archie’s appearance in a podcast they made for Spotify last year did.On that occasion, Archie was heard wishing listeners, “Happy New Year.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Crystal Kung Minkoff and her husband, Rob Minkoff, created their dream home from the ground up. "Rob and I actually built this home ourselves," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newcomer shared in the exclusive Bravo Insider video above. "It was a total labor of love." When designing the house, Crystal and Rob put special thought into every single detail. "The house is about 9,000 square feet. The number 8 is really important to Chinese culture and I said, 'Let's try to get a house 8,888 square feet," Crystal said. "We were close, so I'm just going to stick with that number." Although she considers the elegant formal living room the "heart of the home," Crystal and her family spend "99 percent of the time" in their gorgeous kitchen. "I love to cook. I love to entertain," she explained. "All of my friends always come into this room." The exterior is also jaw-dropping. In addition to a backyard area featuring a beautiful pool, there is the "other outdoor space," which Crystal called the "fire pit area," as well as a separate "kids' yard." To see a full tour of Crystal's incredible house, including the "cozy" library, chic bedroom, and luxe bathroom, check out the video above!

Discovery Channel is entering the dating game with series orders for three shows that blend romance with nature, entertainment and adventure, including “Naked and Afraid of Love,” “Mating Season” and “Mountain Love,” TheWrap has learned exclusively. The trio of series will be available across Discovery, Inc. platforms later this year. Here’s the official description for “Naked and Afraid of Love”: Today, dating has become filtered – through the clothes we wear, jobs we have, and lives we share on social media. But what if it was all stripped away — the filters, dating apps and curated personas — leaving room for only our most primal wants and needs, and exposing who we really are in the process? Would we forge stronger connections? Discovery seeks to answer these questions and more in “Naked and Afraid of Love,” a groundbreaking take on modern dating that is the ultimate blend of survival and romance unlike anything viewers have seen. By stripping it all away — beginning with the clothes — “Naked and Afraid of Love” sets out to uncover what happens when 16 complete strangers — 8 single women and 8 single men — attempt to find true love while working together to survive the elements and each other on an unforgettable island paradise. And “Mating Season,” which is a working title: Bringing together the fun of relationship competition shows with the mating rituals of the Animal Kingdom, “Mating Season” (wt) spotlights what happens when humans look to the natural world for help in the love department. Animals have courtship down to a science with tried and true techniques for finding a mate that are [sic] far removed from any of the distractions or complications of modern human dating. “Mating Season” (wt) asks the question: Can mating like animals help find love as humans? In the all-new Discovery series, eligible women and men will leave behind their human habits and attempt to find true love, animal style. With truly animalistic challenges, such as limited speaking opportunities and choreographing the perfect mating ritual to win over their potential mates, “Mating Season” brings out the animal within to unleash our natural instincts in the pursuit of true love. And “Mountain Love”: Finally, what happens when long-distance couples have found their soulmates at long last, but come to find they live completely different lives? In an all-new series from the producers of “90 Day Fiancé,” “Mountain Love,” five people from cities and suburbs decide to move-in with their long-distance partners who live way, way off-grid in some of the most remote corners of the country. Will their relationships survive this real-world experiment as they take the ultimate plunge to leave civilization — and indoor plumbing — behind? With a wide range of unique stories, from an off-the-grid couple looking to become a “throuple” with the addition of a sister-wife, to a mountain mama who’s convinced her younger, city-loving man to join her in the remote ranch in Arizona, these complex relationships will need to endure more than just the elements — they’ll need to survive each other in the process. “We’ve documented people all over the world doing the most extreme things – whether it’s risking their lives out at sea, street racing or traveling to space – but nothing better illustrates what it truly means to be human than our quest for love,” Nancy Daniels, chief brand officer of Discovery & Factual, tells TheWrap. “We are combining core elements of the Discovery brand with the complexities of finding love and companionship, and the results will both thrill and tug at the heartstrings.” “Naked and Afraid of Love” is produced for Discovery by Renegade 83, an Entertainment One (eOne) company, with David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Jay Bienstock as executive producers. For Discovery, Michael Gara is executive producer and Paola Espinosa is associate producer. “Mating Season” hails from Boat Rocker Studios through Matador Content on behalf of Discovery. For Matador, Todd Lubin, Jay Peterson, and Sam Brown are executive producers. For Discovery, Gretchen Morning is executive producer and Greg Wolf is producer. “Mountain Love” is produced by Sharp Entertainment for Discovery. For Sharp Entertainment, Matt Sharp, Dan Adler, and Doug Fitch are executive producers. For Discovery, Erin Wanner and Keith Hoffman are executive producers, and Sarah Russell is supervising producer.
