Don’t forget that the official listening party for R.E.M.’s Collapse Into Now is tonight at the 40 Watt. Details are here. The band has been doing a lot of press lately and the reviews of the album have been pretty positive so far. Make sure to check back here tomorrow for a full write up of this evening’s event, as per tradition.
If you’re headed out to SXSW, make sure to stop by a killer awesome show featuring Ginger Man, the Baseball Project, the Fleshtones, Flash to Bang Time, Mike Watt (ex-Minutemen), the Bluebonnets (Katy Valentine’s band, ex Go~Go’s), Supercluster and Casper and the Cookies. Yowsers!
Speaking of the Baseball Project, a little Gordon told me that you can expect a surprise show from them this upcoming Saturday, 5 p.m.at Wuxtry. YAY!
Also speaking of Casper and the Cookies, word is they have some new songs for us. Double Yay!
Don’t forget that March is Red Cross Month.
Submissions for this year’s POPFEST festival will open Tuesday, March 15. Get to plannin!
Not a big fan of The Cleveland Show but Fred Schnider made an appearance on it as Betty the Bank Teller. Watch it here.
