Two songs battle to the death inside the steel, every weeknight at 10pm!
Two new warriors will battle it out tonight for the gold!
The Dear Hunter with Whisper!
vs. Silversun Pickups with Dots and Dashes!
Call and voice your opinion about the songs, 1-866-91-DC101! Their fate is in your hands. Either they live to fight another day, or THEY SHALL DIE!!!
What tickets can you get this week?
Imagine Dragons are at Merriweather on September 20th, you could win those!
Or the Vans Warped Tour is at Merriweather, that show is on July 10th!
Maybe Thursday Ticket Takeover is your style, where you possibly could see The Killers at Merriweather on August 10th!
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.
Who knew Aisha Tyler was such a fan of the Silversun Pickups! You learn something new every day, and she revealed her fandom by directing a video for their song Simmer! Enjoy!
Great second day for me at Rock on the Range, stayed quite busy!
First off I had a chance to catch up with Gavin Rossdale backstage. We discussed the new music Bush is making, how a concert turned ugly on them the other night and always playing the bad guy on film!
Check out our conversation:
Gavin was great, but wait, there's more! Our friends Dan and Tony from Beware of Darkness came over to chat for a few minutes as well, letting me know about playing for Conan, finally having the record Orthodox out and they almost kind of sort of told me what's next!
Here is that chat!
It was a great weekend at Rock on the Range, thank you everyone who I got to meet and have a blast with!!!
I had a great time running around and taking photos of everything at Rock on the Range, please check out my first day shots by clicking here and going to them!
Just a sample, from our friends Papa Roach.
Also I had a chance to chat for a few minutes with Jim Florentine!
Jim is getting ready for the 12th season of That Metal Show plus he was doing stand up at Rock on the Range. Lots to discuss and I had to take an awful photo with him...
Told you it was bad... Anyhow, hear our chat!
Thank you Jim! Apologies again for my bad smile.
It happened in September of 2011. R.E.M. called it quits. Nobody expected that to be said, but it was and they did and now they're no longer.
Fans have been asking how long until they do decide to get back on stage, in the studio, to do something again as R.E.M. But it won't happen. It's not going to occur anymore because they aren't going to do it!
That's what Mike Mills said. The former R.E.M. bassist told Rolling Stone how it is and how it's going to be.
"There were no real factors other than deciding it was time to break up. There's no drug abuse. There's no in-fighting. There's no legal problems. It was time to break up. That's never really been done before.
He went on to say, "The idea of breaking up and not reforming for a reunion tour is kind of attractive to us," he added. "I doubt you'll see us touring as R.E.M. again. On the other hand, I just played with Peter in New York City the other night, so fun things do happen."
So that's how it stands, at least for now. It could change, but I wouldn't bank on it...
One of the biggest pet peeves I have about going to shows is not having cell service. I know you agree because I always see people around me trying to do whatever on their phones during a set change and getting annoyed.
The people at Glastonbury are going to try to solve the problem this year: they've partnered with EE, a mobile provider in the UK, and are getting their own dedicated 4G network for the show this year! How great is that!
If this works I hope more concert venues and festivals do this. Smartphones are such a part of our lives and to make the customer happy with an addition like this would be huge! We'll see. Glastonbury is coming up at the end of June.
