I was passed out cold after the Texas Hippie Coalition show at the Warehouse when I got the call from my friend Jeanne, who works at a radio station in New Orleans: "Seether! Avenged Sevenfold! Three Days Grace! It's the Uproar Festival in Biloxi! Wait! Wait! Wait! SEVENDUST IS PLAYING TOO! I've already booked rooms! YOU HAVE TO COME"! I'm sure some Incoherent mumbling followed. Incoherent mumbling that she later assured me was my promise that I would be there - hell or high water. If I'd only known...
Labor Day Weekend. The last three-day weekend of summer. How will you spend the holiday? In the backyard BBQing with a few friends? On the beach with the feisty wumpty you met at the bar last weekend? Glued to the TV for the first weekend of college football? C'mon! There are better things to do. For example, My Top 5 Reasons to Spend Labor Day Weekend at the Uproar Festival.
Ok, First...this information comes from a friend of a friend of a friend close to the Van Halen camp, so take this with a 5 pound grain of salt - Van Halen will be releasing a new single next week. And SUPPOSEDLY, this new single will be called 'Late Term'. Of course, the Van Halen PR machine went into action as soon as this info hit the streets, screaming "Not true! Not true!

Not to say my Grandfather wasn't a wise man, but I've found (in the few times I've been in a bar), real bartenders don't have to be old. Or men. Sometimes they're young. And female. And HOT! As evidenced by by the beautiful - and talented women here. Let me introduce you to what I think are Shreveport's Top 5 Hottest Bartenders.
When the Foo Fighters decided to start work on their latest album, "Wasting Light", frontman Dave Grohl said "It's time for us to be a rock band again." What better way to get back to the roots of rocking than to record the album in a garage?

Earlier this year, MTV announced that ‘Beavis and Butt-Head,’ one of MTV’s flagship shows during the 1990s, would be returning — and fans rejoiced.
Attendees at Comic-Con got a preview of upcoming episodes yesterday, introduced by creator Mike Judge, and it seems the iconic adolescents haven’t aged a bit.. The only difference seems to be the material on which they snark while watching TV — instead of music videos, now it’s tacky reality fare like ‘Jersey Shore.’
As I'm sure aware by now, Seattle's purveyors of Sonic Destruction are back - with a few reunion shows last year, a new album in the works (due out in 2012), and a new tour that kicked off Saturday night in Toronto (Soundgarden headlines the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans on Halloween weekend).
Lately, Led Zeppelin/Them Crooked Vultures bassist John Paul Jones has been spending a lot of time hanging out with blues singer/guitarist Seasick Steve. At the iTunes Festival in London Saturday, JPJ joined Jack White (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather) and Alison Mosshart (Dead Weather) onstage with Steve to jam on Mississippi Fred McDowell’s Write Me A Few Of Your Lines.
Whether you're a biker, rocker, or a supporter of music education - you'll want to be at Trees in Deep Ellum (Dallas) on August 20th. It's the "Ride For Dime 2011", held in memory of Pantera/Damageplan guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
