    OK Go, touted as the most downloaded band ever, will launch an extensive North American tour with a performance at the Los Angeles County Fair on October 3. Tickets are on sale now. In addition to its headlining dates, the band will perform at the Discover Louisville Festival (10/12) and the PopTech Conference (10/21, Camden, ME), an annual event that convenes a network of visionary individuals in science, technology, design, the corporate and social sectors, entrepreneurship, education and the arts to explore the nature of creative change. OK Go will also perform at the MTV Brazil Music Awards on September 16. That's a lot of work for the most downloaded band EVER to be doing; perhaps that's why they are the most downloaded band ever. It's those kooky videos and the iron clad work ethic.

    Also, OK Go have partnered with Indaba Music and the Rock Band Network to launch a remix contest for their new single, "White Knuckles." OK Go encourages fans to get as creative as possible, to not feel afraid to redefine the song in both genre and feeling. The contest will run from September 7 through October 14. Further details will be available at http://www.okgo.net.

    Each week starting Sept 21st, Dave Fridmann, producer of "White Knuckles" and the album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, will choose his favorite remixes to feature across all OK Go web properties. All featured remixes will also be available for fans to download on the database that accompanies the pre-order for the November 2 US release, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky (Extra Nice Edition). The grand prize winner will be announced on October 29 and will have his/her remix mastered and made available for download in Rock Band. The grand prize winner will also receive a gaming console, a copy of Rock Band 3, and a set of Rock Band instruments to jam with friends to their winning remix. Effing cool, right?

    OK Go - comprising Damian Kulash, Tim Nordwind, Dan Konopka and Andy Ross - recently contributed a track to the compilation album Dear New Orleans..., which benefits New Orleans-based non-profits working to support the region's culture and community.
