We're happy to be giving away two pairs of general admission, three-day passes today in this thread. This includes only entry into the festival, so if you enter to win the passes, you have to be sure that you can attend.

It looks like we're going to have some server issues for a little bit around here -- I'm really sorry about that. You can follow me on Twitter for updates on how much I drink while we get this settled.

Max Bemis of Say Anything was featured on AV Club's "Hatesong" to talk about Nirvana's "Rape Me."
That’s just how it came across to me. It’s the sort of baseline assumptions that one can make. It’s sort of like Miley—I’m going to get a lot of shit for this—but it’s just like what Miley Cyrus is doing right now. We don’t really know what’s in her head or why she’s doing this. But we can assume she’s trying to grow up and expand her image and no longer be a teeny-bopper icon, and she’s trying to be dangerous and sexy and hip. So that’s our assumption that may be miles from whatever she’s actually thinking about.

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day. Stay safe and enjoy (hopefully) the day off.
Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other...

They would never turn anything down, and they constantly had new material. We kind of made that our approach in Empire!, which is why we’ve got so many splits, so many projects, so many little releases.

Matt Sharp, formerly of Weezer, talks to Flavorwire about the new Rentals album and his influence on Weezer's early albums.
Would it have been any better or much worse? Would people have said, "Oh my God, Weezer's in Nashville making an acoustic record!"? Maybe! Or maybe people would have said, "This is the most boring record I've heard in my fucking life!" There’s this idea that I would have been a one remedy fix-all, but there’s also that possibility of, "be careful what you wish for." Maybe it would have been a much bleaker thing with me in there. Who knows? I would have maybe put us down very pretentious roads.

Sirens and Sailor's van was burglarized the other day and they are taking donations.
Every single dollar we brought with us, every single penny that we have earned over the past month of touring overseas has been stolen. Licenses, credit cards, essential medical supplies, laptops, electronic equipment, even down to our toiletries, GONE. In a matter of minutes, our livelihood has been taken from us. Our dream come true has become the exact opposite.
