So while our staff recharges for another fun-filled day of typing dates, punching in venues and learning how to spell complex city names like Fargo, Buffalo and Taft, here’s your final update.
Our overnight crew is busy prepping the following stories for late night / early morning distribution:
How’s The Weather? All about My American Heart and the band’s busy fall schedule.
Schwiinnng! Austin doom rockers The Sword.
Meanwhile, back on the Web…
Motown’s 50th anniversary party brings out the stars – The Detroit News
A look at music memorabilia in “Recycled Rock” – Indianapolis Star
The folks behind Guitar Hero have partnered with Electronic Arts to bring you “Rock Band.” YouTube videos featuring rock star wannabes playing faux instruments sure to follow – AFP
Hand-painted guitars signed by real rock stars – NME
Tour dates, tour dates and more tour dates…
More dates for Adema, Alien Sex Fiend and Alix Olson today, and those are just the artists beginning with the letter “A.” Which means we have at least 25 more letters to knock off before we head out for happy hour.
Q is for Que Mando in Arvada, Colorado, R is for Reverend Horton Heat in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Ontario and S is for silverchair in Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Indiana, Illinois and New York.
And Z is for Zach Deputy in Kentucky, New York and Connecticut.
Whew! To be honest, we never thought we’d make it through the alphabet. But it’s easy when you do it in alphabetical order and not in reverse order like that cop made us do last night.
Oh, and here’s a little something for the drive home. See ya!
