The 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards show will take place tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tonight's show has a great line-up of performances from the likes of Kanye West, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and more. The list of presenters is also stocked full of A-listers and Fall Out Boy is nominated for "Best Rock Video" as well. The show begins at 9 PM EST and you can discuss, debate, and make fun of whatever happens during the show in here. I heard some popular '90s boy band might reunite tonight. I hope it's 98 Degrees.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I came across a band I've been quite a fan of for some time now. Smalls is a five piece pop-punk band hailing from Los Angeles whose female fronted, raw sound makes them stand out from their identikit peers.Their recent EP, Expecting The Worse perfectly showcases the band's pop sensibilities alongside their D.I.Y, punky aesthetic. Expecting The Worse is available as 'name your price' on their Bandcamp. Give a couple of years and Smalls will be very, very big... (ahem). Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

Jake DenningThis week, I've been listening to one of my favorite bands, P.O.D., alongside Turnstile, O' Brother, and Daylight. Also, after hearing Jason and Drew's recent chat with Riley Breckenridge of Thrice, I've been spinning Vheissu and The Alchemy Index as well.
Jack ApplebyDo yourself a favor and go see The World's End - just a great, enjoyable movie. Musically, lots of Moving Mountains, Live Alive, and Say Anything. Pretty damn excited about the upcoming NBA season as well.

Here's something interesting. In promoting their collaboration "A Light That Never Comes," Steve Aoki and Linkin Park released a teaser video that appears to show the use of a pirated version of Lennar Digital's Sylenth 1 software. Unique Squared has an opinion piece & evidence on the issue, outlining several possible outcomes from the situation. Does it bother you that financially-stable musicians are still stealing the software that helped them become successful? Does it not matter?

Update: Steve Aoki has addressed the concerns via his blog, where he shows proof of purchase and explains the pirated software.
However, the honest truth is that screenshot is in fact of my road...

Fest 12 has released its full schedule, which you can view on their website. With the festival expanding to four days for the first time ever, there's a lot to digest. If you're going, discuss who you want to see most, where you'll be each night and speculate about the "mystery sets." And remember, there are always conflicts when your festival has this many great bands...so keep the noise down. Also, remember to pick up your tickets and keep up with our coverage.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, John Mayer speaks about his new album, Paradise Valley, the duet with Katy Perry, and his outlook on life post-throat surgery.
In a recent interview, Mayer was as talkative as ever, but seemed to have a new sense of calmness as he discussed how his life has shifted in the last three years. He overcame a throat injury thanks to Botox injections last year, but the injury left him on voice rest for months and sidelined his performances "an intense amount of hyperfocus" is how he describes it.

"I don't drink really anymore. I warm up before I sing. I warm down," he said. "I do whatever I can. I don't want to lose that part of my life again."

Save The Day tweeted out that the band just played Can't Slow Down (a record that just turned 15 years old) from front to back for the first time. Could they have just been doing it for fun or is this something that might pop up in a future show? Would you be stoked if the band busted out these stone-cold classics on tour? I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

So it was quite the honor to speak Riley Breckenridge on the latest AbsolutePunk.net Podcast episode. In this episode, we break down the entire Thrice discography (with Riley sharing a lot of cool stories and inside information), talk about the band's current status, and we even fit in a little baseball talk.

Today we're bringing you an exclusive premiere from American Authors. This is one of those bands that when you first hear them, you just have that feeling they're going to soon be dominating playlists. To say these guys are catchy would be a massive understatement. I sorta get a fun. mixed with Relient K vibe from their upcoming EP -- which you can find more songs from on iTunes. If you check the replies, you'll hear a new song called "Luck," which drummer Matt described as, "a desperate attempt at explaining to those we love why leaving home was so important in order for us to pursue our dreams. It was also an acknowledgement that along our journey, some people would feel abandoned...
