    The excitement you feel from learning your favorite artist is coming to your town can lead to frustration when you start trying to find good seats to the concert. Depending on the popularity of your favorite artist, good seat tickets can be hard to find. Savvy concertgoers, though, start doing their homework well before concert tickets go on sale at their desired venue, increasing their likelihood of getting the best seats.

    Most concert tickets are not sold to the general public. A portion of the tickets to every venue are held for promoters, sponsors and the entertainers. Many of these additional tickets are sold by concert sponsors at presales before they go on sale to the public. Because these are private sales, you may have to do some research to find out when and where to get your tickets. However, if you are a true fan, you will likely learn the information about the presale from the entertainer’s website, fan page or your favorite radio station.

    Ticket presales often require passwords. The passwords are readily available to people who are part of the group that is sponsoring the concert. If the sponsor is a radio station, you should be able to find the password on their website. The official fan page for the entertainer you are trying to see in concert is another good place to look for the presale password. While most popular concerts have presales, the passwords are not always easy to find. If you really want good seat tickets, though, you will not mind doing the research required to find the presale password.

    In the unfortunate case that you are not able to buy good seat tickets at the presale, do not be discouraged. There is another great way to get a good seat to see your favorite entertainer. The best seats are offered at the presale and within a few days of the concert. The number of seats that are held for special guests does not necessarily coincide with the number of seats that are needed. In an effort to fill all of the seats in the venue, these unused seats go on sale to the public a few days before the concert. If you need more than one ticket, though, this method is probably not your best option.

    Most concert tickets are sold online. However, you can still get good seats by waiting in line. Become familiar with the venue before you shop for tickets. Though the center of each row is generally considered the best seat, a few seats to the right or left of the center often have a similar view of the stage and are not as sought after. By requesting seats a bit off-center, your chances of getting good concert seats improve greatly.

    A good violin, viola or cello varnish can play an important role in perfecting the sound quality of an instrument. The varnish applied by Stradivari to his violins is still believed by many to be the secret the their phenomenal sound. Whether oil or alcohol-based, violinmakers prize their varnish recipes as one of the most important elements of the violinmaking process.

    Before applying any coatings to the instrument, the white wood can be given a tan by exposure to sunlight for a period of several days to several weeks. Aging the wood brings out the color and visual character of the wood through oxidation and ultraviolet light.

    When the wood has received the desired look, the next stage is applying a -ground- coating. A violinmaker may prefer to apply a primer or sealer first. While also darkening and deepening the wood’s visual depth, the ground coating strengthens and protects the instrument even after the varnish has worn off. Many recipes for the ground coat exist and typically this is a tightly held secret.

    Next, the instrument is ready to be varnished. Many recipes exist; most consist of sun-thickened oils such as linseed, lavender or walnut oil combined with oxidized resins such as amber, dammar, balsam and shellac. Alcohol can also be used as a part of or in addition to an oil base. The mixture is left to sit for up to a week, being stirred a few times a day until the lac no longer sits at the top. The mixture is then boiled, cooled and boiled again, then filtered for impurities.

    Adding color to the varnish mixture can help to bring out darker, richer tones, if the varnish mixture is too light. Coloring agents, or -lakes,- include turmeric and saffron for a yellow tone. Sandalwood and pernambucco bring out a redder tone. The varnish is then applied in many coats depending upon the thickness and consistency of the varnish. The varnish is allowed to dry in the sun between coats. Touch ups can be added if there are areas needing additional coating. The instrument can then be lightly polished using a soft cloth with alcohol and mineral oil and or polished out using pumice powders.

    Before breaking into the fashion world, Don Ed Hardy was a tattoo artist from Southern California. He was born in 1945 and graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1973, he had the opportunity to study Japanese tattoo design under Horihide, a master of classical Japanese tattoo. Don Ed Hardy’s tattoos are one-of-a-kind and recognised around the world.

    He and his wife have published a series of books about alternative art, under the label of Hardy Marks Publications. Hardy’s publishing career began with his five-part series “Tattootime.” He now has over 25 publications to his name, including many catalogs of his work.

    Although Hardy no longer tattoos, he still oversees the work done at his studio, Tattoo City in San Francisco. He continues to concentrate on other art forms, including printmaking, painting and drawing, using his distinctive style.

    In 2002, Hardy made the move into the world of fashion, licensing Ku USA to begin production of clothing using his artwork and style. Saks noticed the colorful and unique designs and began to distribute the clothing. Hardy formed an LLC with Ku USA, called Hardy Life.

    The Ed Hardy clothing line was later licensed to Christian Audigier in 2004, following a chance meeting. Celebrities quickly picked up on the new fashion line and a new trend was born: tattoo fashion. Ed Hardy stores were opened in fashion districts, including New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. Devotees of the brand consider it more of a lifestyle celebrating tattoo art, rather than simply clothing to wear.

    An Ed Hardy line is also available for kids. The line features clothing ranging from baby sizes all the way up to clothing for teens, available up to size 16. Items available include designer T-shirts, hoodies, dresses, jeans and even school supplies featuring tattoo artwork.

    A line of professional styling tools marketed under the Ed Hardy name was introduced in 2010. The tools, all featuring the Ed Hardy name and artwork, include items like styling irons, blow dryers and hair accessories.

    The Christian Audigier fragrance line first introduced Ed Hardy fragrances in 2008. The first offerings were Ed Hardy for women and Ed Hardy for men. The feminine version brings to life the vibrant tattoo art. The bright fruity scents of mango, strawberries and grapefruit are instant attention grabbers, the fragrant representation of the blazing colors in the artwork. Ed Hardy for men is woody and aromatic, with mandarin orange, bergamot and sage at the top, a hint of mint and a deep base of amber and musk.

    These fragrances were followed by other in the series, including Hearts and Daggers, Love and Luck, Born Wild and Villain. Most of the fragrances in the Ed Hardy collection are available in both men’s and women’s versions.

    Playing a musical instrument has many benefits. Being able to play a musical instrument can impact your life in many ways and benefit you on many levels, whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally. Let us delve a little bit deeper into the benefits that playing a musical instrument can give you.

    It has been scientifically proven that learning a musical instrument affects the brain in a much positive way. This is especially true for children. Indeed, it has been shown that young kids that listen regularly to music or practice a musical instrument do better in school than their fellow pupils.
