THIS WEEK AT WE ARE: THE GUARD - JAN. 29
This is the fake Justin Timberlake trying to build as much hype about me in the next few days ‘cause I’ve got tickets to sell and a Super Bowl Halftime show that I have to “one up” from my last performance. So I’m going to sign up for any job out there. I don’t care if it’s acting in movies, handing out flyers for Coachella, heck I’ll even do this week’s newsletter for We Are: The Guard. Let’s get this rolling because I have a casting call in 5.
ALTERNATE DIMENSION GRAMMY AWARDS
We Are: The Guard is proud to present an Alternate Dimension Grammys — one where artists win because they factually are the best in their category not because somebody’s nephew told them that’s what’s hip this year. Woah, bold. If the Grammys aren’t going to do it, it looks like its a job for us. This is the year that Grimes wins Best New Pop Artist … and you’ll never believe who wins Artist of the Year.

Post Malone Is Really Into Ghost Hunting. What the Heck Do You Love?
I think this is cool as heck. To be as into ghosts as Post Malone clearly is (I mean WATCH that shiz), and get the opportunity to do some ghost hunting in a controlled environment with paid professionals has got to be one of the coolest things in the whole world. WHO THE HECK ELSE JUST GETS TO CASUALLY SHOW UP ON A GHOST HUNTING EXPEDITION?

You know Kygo and Odesza and Deorro but you wanna DANCE. This whole undercard is basically dance music. And let's be real, rock is dead anyways. It’s the first year in (possibly) ever that there hasn't been a rock band atop this poster. Did you even notice that? Pop and Rap and R&B, all covered, oh yeah. And that stacked dance lineup in the small fonts?
