Joey Cape is auctioning off a Scorpios record -- with all proceeds being donated to Tony Sly's family.
This is the last split I did with Tony Sly. Tony has 2 songs on this album. It was fun to make and I am proud I was able to share this experience with Tony. People are always asking me for this record but I can not sell this on my store site (joeycape.com). So I decided to sell a few I have on Ebay. In my mind this record needs to be available to Tony's fans. It will eventually. But for now... here ya go!

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.
