Now I don't know about all of you, but I'm into freebies. Anyways, I'm on the Silversun Pickups mailing list, & I got an email from them today informing me about some lovely freebies:

Free Tour Bundle Download

SSPU is currently touring with Placebo for their Euro/UK tour. To celebrate the tour, Placebo have compiled a FREE download bundle (complete with a printable PDF booklet) featuring exclusive tracks from all of the bands on the tour."

to see the track listingCollapse )

to download the bundle (AKA free songs), go here; & all you'll need to provide is your name & email address. Not too shabby right?



Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

ALSO-- Kiss live concert is being streamed online tonight--

Watch legendary rockers KISS on Facebook via a Ustream streaming link live from their show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles TONIGHT at 11 pm CST!

the 69 eyes for alchemy

over the past couple of days, I've found a number of interviews, articles, and videos of the eyes. I've collected them here since I haven't seen anyone else posting them anywhere. all behind the cut.

enjoyCollapse )

found out about an article titled "Vampire Rockers 69 Eyes Aren't Twilight Haters" on Noise Creep, & thought i'd share it here. it's rather amusing though it's not terribly long. behind the cut.

(don't know who to credit for the pic)

So, lovely twitter enlightened me on some interesting legislation that is currently in the US House of Representatives: this particular bill-if passed- would require radio to pay artists each time their song is played.

I am honestly unsure about where I stand on this. On one hand, cd sales are down, illegal downloading is up, and musicians trying to break into the industry are suffering... well, actually all but the musicians at the very top are suffering-sorry, I really don't feel too bad for Metallica.

 
However, at the same time, Clear Channel owns 1200+ radio stations in the US, & they are notorious for using payola methods(if you don't know what payola is, read up). Hell, the number of stations (not owned by Clear Channel) that are influenced by payola is probably just as large, if not larger.
