"Jessie" Star Peyton List Greets Fans in West Virginia
The beautiful and sweet actress, Peyton List, stopped by the Charleston Town Center, in Charleston, West Virginia to meet with fans. Hundreds of kids and their patient parents stood in line to wait their turn to say, "Hi" to one of the stars of the Disney Channel series "Jessie."
A fashion show kicked off the Meet and Greet event, followed by a dance routine by a local dance group. The routine ended with the dancers on bended knee, pointing to an escalator, with Peyton descending. She was met by radio DJ, Coach Kidd, from Electric 102.7. He asked Peyton a few questions like what state she calls home (She was born in Florida, calls New York home, but lives in California while taping "Jessie"). She also talked about how she got started in show business and how she felt about visiting West Virginia ("Everyone is so nice," she gushed).
A table was set up and the stream of young fans began. While waiting for each person to approach, Peyton would wave to those watching from the second and third floors. Once the eager fan made it to the table though, they had Peyton's full attention. She would ask their name and carefully sign a photo, making sure to spell everyone's name right.
A lot of fans brought new pairs of socks to donate that were collected for the Union Mission. Helping others, meeting their favorite actress... it was a great day for Peyton and for her fans!

You'll Fall in Love With Listening to Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob!"
By: Sarah Messer
Tegan and Sara's 7th album release is far from what you would expect from this veteran duo. Most fans know their signature indie style that feature deep cutting/emotional lyrics. Hearthrob isn't necessarily a change from the style, but merely just a different point of view or maybe, dare I say, style evolution.
Fans of the beloved album, "The Con" may find themselves somewhat at a lost at first, but no doubt it won't be long before they come around. It isn't guitar filled tracks; its melodic, hip, pop meets hipster driven beats. Each song is unique with the only similarities being how every song keeps your toe tapping, or head bouncing with its catchy constructed tunes.
Some definite stand outs on this album after a first listen are "I Was a Fool," a power ballad that is sure to win over even the toughest critic. Lyrically, this song is a wonderful, honest, story and the listener can definitely feel what Tegan is trying to convey.
"Drove Me Wild," is one of the catchiest tunes on the album. Every time this song comes on, one can only picture people standing in front of their mirror or in their bed room jumping around singing with their make-shift microphone.
"Love They Say," is an acoustic-style ballad. Again, another lyric driven song, you start to really see that this whole album is very personal.
Last but not least, there's "Closer.," Obviously, this track stood out from the day it was released as the first single. It quickly became one of the most popular songs on the radio. This song speaks for itself.
Fall in love with this album today! You can pick it up at most places where music is sold or download it on Itunes. You can also order it here:
