Citi, Live Nation and Yahoo Introduce New Backstage with Citi Interview Series Featuring Katie Couric

Web Series on Yahoo Music Kicks Off With Conversation With Lady Antebellum on Friday, October 24

NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – Oct 23, 2014) – Citi(R) Private Pass, Live Nation Entertainment and Yahoo today announced Backstage with Citi, a new exclusive behind the scenes interview web series on Yahoo Music (https://music.yahoo.com/live-nation-presents/backstage/). Citi is now an official sponsor of Yahoo Live, a pioneering music experience on Yahoo, including the Live Nation Channel which offers fans a live concert everyday for a year. The new series Backstage with Citi is an extension of Citi’s long-standing relationship with Live Nation.

For nearly a decade, Citi has offered thousands of live events annually to their cardmembers through the Citi Private Pass program. Now, Citi is offering behind the scenes backstage access available anywhere, anytime and segments of the interview will be exclusively available on www.citiprivatepass.com for 48 hours before it posts on Yahoo.

“Our customers love the access that we offer across live music and entertainment, and with Backstage with Citi we are able to pull back the curtain even further putting our cardmembers in the room with artists when they sit for a comprehensive interview with one of the nation’s top interviewers and on one of the most popular media platforms,” said Jennifer Breithaupt, Citi’s SVP of Entertainment Marketing.

Yahoo News Global Anchor Katie Couric will interview a select number of artists who will be showcased as part of the series, giving Citi card members and music fans a glimpse behind the scenes with in-depth, compelling, interviews with some of the biggest names in music. Yahoo Music editor Lyndsey Parker will also bring Citi customers up close and personal with some of their favorite entertainers.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Citi as a presenter of this unique interview series on Yahoo,” said Darin Wolf, Executive Vice President, Live Nation Media & Sponsorships. “Throughout our successful partnership, Citi has shown a commitment to providing its customers extraordinary access to the best musical artists in the world. Backstage with Citi is a natural extension of that commitment, giving fans access to see and hear their favorite artists in perhaps their most comfortable setting — backstage.”

“We’re excited to debut Citi’s new behind the scenes interview series as we continue to bring high quality entertainment programming to our passionate audience,” said Lisa Licht, SVP, Marketing Partnerships, Yahoo. “As a sponsor of Yahoo Live, Citi will share this exclusive video content with millions of music fans on Yahoo and also leverage targeted advertising across our network.”

Grammy(R) Award-winning superstar country trio Lady Antebellum will kick off Backstage with Citi when part of their interview with Katie Couric premieres Thursday, October 23 on Citi Private Pass. The band will be discussing their fifth studio album, 747, which was released September 30, 2014 by Capitol Records Nashville. The album captures the speed and spirit of its critically acclaimed live show. O.A.R. will be the second interview, the first with Yahoo Music editor Lyndsey Parker and will premiere in early November.

“Katie is so good about digging in and really asking about the stories that inspire the music — from the studio to the stage,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We always love chatting with her and think it’s a fun way to complement the concert experience for the fans!”

Citi offers Citi credit and debit cardmembers access to tickets to thousands of live events annually through Citi Private Pass, the bank’s entertainment access program. In 2013, Citi offered cardmembers more than 5,000 music events, ranging from preferred tickets and early access to top concert tours to curated special events with Grammy(R) award-winners and VIP experiences including pre-show performances and Q&A. Last year, Citi sponsored the Rolling Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour mobile app. In addition, Citi presented “Katy Perry’s: We Can Survive” benefit concert and exclusive cardmember pre-show experience at the famed Hollywood Bowl. Other experiences have featured artists such as Lady Gaga, Band of Horses, John Mayer, Lady Antebellum, and more.

FlashForge Dreamer Business-Level 3D Printer with FDM Technology (3D-FFG-DREAMER) @ff3dprinters

FlashForge Dreamer Business-Level 3D Printer with FDM Technology (3D-FFG-DREAMER)

Dreamer 3D Printer Business-Level Desktop 3D Printer
Buy Now

The Dreamer 3D Printer from Flashforge allows you to create three-dimensional prints from up to two colors and materials, up to a build volume of nearly 300 cubic inches. Mix and match colors in ABS, PLA, or water-soluble PVA filament to create prints in resolutions as fine as 100 microns, or in rougher 400-micron layers when a quicker, less intricate result is required.

Send your prepared 3D files to the Dreamer via USB, Wi-Fi, or SD card, and navigate the menu via its 3.5″ multi-language touchscreen. The enclosed build chamber insulates heat, creating an ideal environment for ABS printing. When printing with PLA, open the glass door to provide ventilation. Dissolvable PVA filament is also compatible with the Dreamer, and can be used for printing filler or support structures that can then be easily removed post-printing without tools.

The Dreamer’s built-in filament chambers ensure your filament is fed to the extruders smoothly and without winding errors. Your Dreamer 3D printer comes fully-assembled with a build plate that does not require calibration, two spools of filament, and a 4GB SD Card, so you can begin printing right out of the box.

Features :

  • ARM Contex-M4 CPU processor, for faster computing
  • IPS material 3.5in. multi-language touchscreen LCD panel operation
  • Self-developed Flashprint model slice driver process
  • Support with WiFi connection, uplaoding the printing file to machine
  • Built-in 4g memory support wtih storing file and folder
  • Firmware upgradeable
  • Support with USB 2.0/ up to 32GB memory card
  • High-end plastic-alloy body, a sense of fashion and technology
  • Supports Windows XP/7/8 32 or 64-bit, Linux & Mac OS
  • Compatible with Skeinforge and Slic3r slicing Optional effect of slicing
  • No need to carlibrate the Imported Aerometal material printing platform
  • Easy to operate, upgradeable, modular design of extruder
  • Dual-Color & Multi-Material
    Maximize the Dreamer’s capabilities by using two colors to create colorful prints in a variety of combinations. Switch from ABS to PLA materials depending on your needs, and use dissolvable PVA filament to build support or filler structures that you can then easily remove post-printing by immersing in water.

    Multiple Connectivity Options
    Transfer your completed designs to the Dreamer via USB cable, SD card, or Wi-Fi.

    Multiple Resolutions
    Choose a slower, finer resolution setting when building intricate, detailed models at up to 100-micron layer accuracy. Select faster, draft-like conditions as coarse as 500 microns per layer when you require a rougher, less accurate print.

    LED Strip Lighting
    User-defined LED strip lighting lines the interior of the Dreamer for increased visibility. You’ll be able to see your 3D models come to life at every step.

Bachi Burger Pasadena Opening Soon @bachiburger

Bachi Burger Pasadena

After opening in West Los Angeles,  BACHI BURGER WEST LA is finally open!!  soft opening , September 24, 2014. Located at 2030 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles CA 90025.

What does “bachi” mean?

For us there is a dual meaning.  Bachi is an abbreviated term for the word “Hibachi” which refers to a method of Japanese style of grilling.  The word bachi also means to treat others how you would like to be treated in return.


Asian-style Burgers and Unique Beverages

Our burgers are inspired from the varied asian influences from the Hawaiian islands.  Boba drinks and milkshakes, sodas made in house and Asian style iced teas, milk teas and coffees were an obvious pairings with our unique burgers and sandwiches.  For our beer menu we looked towards local domestic microbrews in the U.S. that could match up to our flavors with a few imports to compliment.  Our Sake offerings are carefully selected to pair well with our cuisine yet offer great variety to our discerning customers.



Bachi Burger has a strong belief in sustainable and environmentally principled business practices and products.  All of our used oil is recycled locally as a renewable energy source.  All food compost is transported to local farms.  All other post consumer waste materials that can be recycled are separated daily.  We continue to research both food and non-food products for materials that are either recycled or did not have a negative impact on the environment during growing or production.  That is our commitment to the world we all live in.



We also believe in being a positive part of the community.  Bachi Burger supports local artists and showcase their art throughout the restaurant.
