  4. Happy holidays, Grooveworld! Have we mentioned that we are really excited that it’s the holiday season? Have you seen our totally sweet holiday site theme on Grooveshark?

    All of our site themes are near and dear to us but this site theme is super special! Not only is it lovely to look at but there are so many awesome things you can do on it!

    You can treat yourself and upgrade your Grooveshark account for a discounted price now that lasts all year! The ultimate gift that keeps on giving! Grooveshark Plus for $3/month (usually $6/month) and Grooveshark Anywhere for $50/year (usually $90/year). 

    Also, you can give your friends the gift of Grooveshark! Give the gift of 15 million songs to all of your friends this holiday season with incredible holiday discounts that last all year!

    Click here to check out the holiday site theme for yourself, upgrade your account and gift the shark! Happy holidays from Grooveshark!  


  5. December is finally here and we’re kicking off the holiday season right. From now until the end of December you can get sweet holiday discounts on our premium subscriptions!

    For holiday shoppers not in-the-know, Grooveshark Plus removes all ads, gets you access to our desktop app, early access to new Grooveshark features,  and tons more cool stuff, now only $3 a month (normally $6 a month).

    Grooveshark Anywhere—only $50 if you buy a whole year (normally $90 a year)—gets you the best Grooveshark experience possible: all the perks of Plus, as well as access to our mobile apps, letting you take Grooveshark anywhere you go.

    So get shopping! And share your spiffy, premium username in the comments once you splurge.


  6. Hey Sharks! Every Friday here at Grooveshark we have a company wide meeting at 4pm eastern time. Everyone looks forward to gathering in the same room and recap the week, talk about goals, new initiatives, favorite foods, exciting events, etc.

    We have decided to shake these meetings up a little bit for us as well as our fans. Starting about three weeks ago we decided that we would implement something that would connect Grooveshark with our listeners. Now, at the end of every company-wide meeting we hold a contest to give one lucky winner a lifetime of Grooveshark Anywhere.

    All you have to do to win is like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. We will post and tweet the telephone number to call to be the 50th caller. Once you call, we will get your skype information and call you on skype. (You have to have access to skype to win because we want to be able to see our winner and interact with them face to face.) Here’s a shot of us interacting with last week’s winner, Anthony Ramos! 

    We are really excited about this here at Grooveshark. It is by far everyone’s favorite part of the meeting and we sincerely look forward to connecting with a fellow shark. We hope that you all look out for us every Friday on Facebook and Twitter between 4-5pm eastern time for a chance to win! Happy Friday!


  7. We’re super happy about our latest theme, featuring of Montreal. You can check out all of Montreal’s latest EP, thecontrollersphere, on Grooveshark!

    If you buy David Barnes’ book What’s Weird? with the EP, you also get a free month of Grooveshark Anywhere. Go! Listen!
