It remains important to ensure that any negative impact we have on our environment is minimized.  HostGator makes every effort to remain a green webhost, however the Internet as a whole is likely causing more of an impact that one might imagine.  Our new infographic sheds some light on this issue and even provides some helpful tips on how to minimize your (virtual, but not virtual) carbon footprint.

The Adventures of Snappy: Electric Attitude Edition

Written by Sean Valant

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

It’s been a little while since Snappy hit the town to see some live music.  If you’ve missed his prior adventures, check out the archives right here.

Snappy recently witnessed Houston’s very own Electric Attitude playing at the legendary Number’s nightclub.  As per normal, given his VIP access, Snappy was able to enjoy the show from the best seat in the house, right on stage:

Electric Attitude are the undisputed kings of Houston Funk/Soul/R&B, having taken home the Houston Press Awards in that category for three years running (2011-2013).  With unique instrumentation, including an EWI (electric wind instrument), the band delivers an impressive mix of cross-genre appeal, seamlessly gliding into rock, blues and dance territory.

EA’s high-energy live show translates exceptionally well to their most recent album, Skintight & Solid Gold (Gr8 Heights Records).  Snappy was fortunate enough to catch up with the guys once again at the recent Houston Press Artopia Event, for another quick photo op including the aforementioned new album:

Electric Attitude are a truly great live band; Snappy highly recommends you go see them when they come to your town!

If you have an event in the Houston or Austin area that you would like for Snappy to attend, please get in touch with us by emailing feedback@hostgator.com ATTN: Blog.
