At 10pm every weeknight we put two bands together with their new songs and have them battle it out. One of them gets to be The Champion, the other... SHALL DIE!!
At 8:10 every night you can win the Deluxe Edition of Megalithic Symphony plus you're in the running for the trip to Vail and the custom AWOLNATION snowboard!
In the Cage Match, score a four pack of tickets for Monster Jam, January 24th and 25th at the Verizon Center!
Yes, Last Calls is all about you and what you want to hear every weeknight at 11! Ring me up, 1-866-91-DC101! However, there must be rules, and Last Calls has 5 very important ones that everyone is expected to follow.
1. Don't be a jerk on the phone.
2. You must know the name of the song and who it's by or be prepared to sing it.
3. No Skynyrd.
4. Thursday Night is Ladies Night. No wang allowed.
5. I have the final say over all song choices.
It's always interesting to learn where musicians get inspiration for songs from, sometimes from love, sometimes from pain, life, death, working, whatever. For Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, it was a postcard.
He told XFM that he was in a store and saw a simple phrase on a postcard, "Come home, practically all, is nearly forgiven." Those words hit him so hard that he had to write a song using them to start it out, and Right Action came to be.
In fact, those are the first words we'll hear on the new record Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, coming out in August.
