Of course, concert dates are our main line of work. Ever since 1929 when our founder, Festus Pollstar, stumbled drunk through the streets of Fresno belching out dates for Al Jolson and Bing Crosby, has been known for the latest in concert schedules.

And today is no exception. In the last 8 hours we added several new shows for Aaron Watson, Dillinger Escape Plan and Johnny Winter. As an added attraction, we have your Hookers And Blow right here.

Yes, it’s been a busy day. A day adding shows for Nekromantix, Orson and Jeff & Vida. A day slamming in dates for Kid Beyond, Eddie Money and DJ Logic. A day kicking our keyboards through the window while screaming, “Is it 5 yet?!?!”

Well, what do you know? It is 5 PM. We have to get out of here to make way for the weekend crew. They’re a good bunch. That is, as long as they keep their mitts off of our secret Boones Farm stash.

And, due to overwhelming requests, here’s a man playing Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” on a tuba. Enjoy!
