Post subject:  Blow Up Hollywood's 'Fake' Makes Radio Waves

New York City's Blow Up Hollywood (, whose name is a backlash to the excesses of glitter marketing in media, will play a set for the renowned Echoes radio program which reaches across the US on over 150 radio stations. The band will perform a customized set for Echoes out of Indre Studios in Philadelphia on August 27 to be broadcast during the week of September 15. Information on where the show airs can be found at The band is planning on recording the set for later release.

Blow Up Hollywood's self-released second album, Fake (, features songs hosting a spectacle of highly accomplished musicians, including musical visionary, Steve Messina and Julliard Scholar Dave Eggar. The band creates a huge orchestral wall of sound with blissful string arrangements and poignant vocals making each track a requiem. Blow Up Hollywood is best taken as a whole as the band's song concepts overwhelmingly replete their albums. Sidestepping the ordinary, the band's live show is a mixed media event with the staging of a self-produced film being run on a screen while the band score it live, almost secretly in the dark.

Blow Up Hollywood will play live Saturday, Sept. 18 in New York City at Tribeca Rock Club
