CBS.com is doing a "Grammy Gig of a Lifetime" competition for unsigned up and coming bands. 40 finalists will be selected by Fall Out Boy, Austin Mahone, and Emeli Sande -- and one winner being chosen by votes to perform as part of the festivities.
Bruce Springsteenwill release a new single entitled "High Hopes" (a cover previously released on the ultra-rare Blood Brothers EP) on November 25, and there's reason to believe that it's from a new upcoming record, or possibly a sequel to the expansive Tracks collection of Springsteen B-sides and outtakes. Stay tuned.

If you are planning to attend Arcade Fire's upcoming 2014 North American tour, you better be prepared to dress up a little. If you click on any of the dates on Ticketmaster, you'll notice it says "Night of Show: Please wear formal attire or costume" - a request the band also made of the fans whom attended the smaller, exclusive shows this past fall. While dressing up was mandatory for those attending the smaller shows, no such clarification has been made about these upcoming arena shows (will a concert-goer be turned away at the door for not dressing up?).
The "Brand New doesn't care about their fans and are in it for the money" crowd are gonna have to eat some crow on this one. A fan who bought tickets for the discography shows in California called to try and change the will-call name for his ticket and was told that the band has "strictly enforced" that name changes on tickets (the name on the will call list that was selected during purchase) will not apply to these shows to try and deter scalpers. They told him specifically that the portion of their policy that discusses name changes to will-call tickets "does NOT apply to this show. The band has strictly enforced this. Name changes may NOT be done."
