Most seventeen year olds occupy themselves with the latest social trends or what their plans for the upcoming weekend will include. Like her or not, it is impossible to ignore Lorde. Her age, her gripping voice, her curious dancing and dynamic lyrics—they all make her a little unusual—and she seems to be perfectly fine with that.

We Got a New Logo!

101X got a makeover and we're absolutely lovin' it.
Although we had some great times with the last logo, we decided it was time to shake things up a bit. So 101X is rolling out a new look just in time to debut at SXSW.
Don't worry, though! We'll still be playing all your favorite tunes. The 101X attitude hasn't changed one bit. We just got a facelift. In fact, we'll be rolling out a new website here in a few weeks. We were just so excited about the logo that we had to debut it today.
We'll be showing off our new logo at our SXSW Live Broadcast. It's free for 21+, so come on by because we'll have interviews, performances, and all sorts of new 101X swag to give away.
