Mates of State is coming out with an album of covers, including Death Cab For Cutie and Mars Volta. Awesome.

Tickets for Daytrotter’s Barn Stormer 3 are on sale here. Now I just need to find a ride.

Here is a recap of the Under the Radar SXSW party, featuring Sondre Lerche among others.

Rocky Votolato is looking for places to host living room shows this summer.

The L.A. Times has a good article on L.A bands playing Coachella.

I was also reading this L.A. Times article about Lollapalooza and read this quote that makes cringe, “Things have sure come a long way since Jane’s Addiction headlined Lollapalooza in 1991 at Irvine Meadows for $25.”

I’ll probably go see Deer Tick tomorrow night but I think I’ll buy tickets at the door because I am cheap like that.
