Twitter and Shout

Which came first? The social media followers or the fame? Nowadays, it’s probably the former. We're gonna say it: Justin Bieber paved the way for future musicians. Future generations won’t know how people became famous without the help of social media, like Vine, YouTube and Instagram. Make a music video and get signed to a record label, not the other way around. That's the path of the eight acts at this year’s MAGCON, a variety show featuring musicians who got their start via social media. They’re just like the Beatles — if the Beatles only had six seconds to perform or 140 characters to communicate their message. Warning: bring earplugs, you can expect a lot of tweens. The show hits the Irving Convention Center (500 W. Las Colinas Blvd.) at 6:30 p.m. Sunday and tickets will run you $29-99. More information at magcontour.com.
