Actor Matthew McConaughey selected the band's music to be in his film, Surfer Dude.

The first of many "Ones to Watch Powered by LG" events, attendees of the House of Blues concert will be the first to experience the innovative partnership between LG Mobile Phones and Live Nation. Delivering the sounds of break-out artists from across the nation, the integrated partnership engages music enthusiasts through intimate, one-on-one entertainment events, online social and media efforts, and LG product demonstrations.

"We are really excited to take the 'Ones to Watch' program to the next level," Ben Weeden said. "House of Blues has always been committed to developing new talent and LG is a proven leader in cutting edge technology, so this partnership will allow us to expose fans to new, exciting music and products. Artists that are selected for this program will benefit from the expanded exposure through House of Blues and LG's social and digital networks."

In December 2010, the band issued In Darkness & In Light, an iTunes exclusive box set that includes a short film written, scored and created by the band, home recordings, acoustic versions of songs and B sides.

Over the course of their eight years as a band, Epic Records artists Augustana have become known as quality purveyors of well-crafted, melodic piano-driven rock, as evidenced by the success of their Top 40 singles, the digital platinum "Boston" and "Stars and Boulevards" from their 2005 debut All the Stars and Boulevards (which reached No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart), and "Sweet and Low" and "I Still Ain't Over You" from 2008's Can't Love, Can't Hurt. The band's third album, the self-titled Augustana, will be out April 26

The platinum-selling debut, Ocean Eyes, was released in July 2009 and earned some of the best notices of the year (New York Times, Rolling Stone, People, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, etc.) Ocean Eyes' sales were led by the runaway single "Fireflies" which is currently quadruple platinum in the U.S. "Fireflies" hit No 1 on the Hot 100 twice and found its' way to the No 1 spot in 24 countries around the world leading to several sold out worldwide tours - keeping Owl City on the road for over a year and a half.

Vices & Virtues, released March 2, is the new album from Fueled By Ramen recording artists Panic! At The Disco. The well received CD marks the band's innovative new incarnation as a duo with vocalist Brendon Urie and drummer Spencer Smith. Panic! At The Disco's debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, was released in 2005, reached number 13 on the Billboard chart and sold over 2.2 million copies worldwide. The band won the 2006 MTV Music Awards Video of the Year for "I Write Sins Not Tragedies."

Mercury/Island Def Jam recording artists Neon Trees released Habits, their debut album, in 2010. The first single, "Animal," rose to number one on the Billboard Alternative Rock Chart and number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"The House of Blues and LG partnership will include multi-pronged exposure on both House of Blues and LG's social and digital media communities and retail outlets," Weeden said.
