Sherwood made a post on Facebook about an acoustic album the band recorded but never released, and it appears that it will release after an unspecified number of "likes." So if you want to hear this sucker, I'd suggest you get to likin' that status.

We're continuing our coverage of Riot Fest 2013 this week in a slightly oddball way. You won't find a list of things to do or bands to watch in this feature, but instead, we're bringing you something more applicable to your daily life. If you follow @RiotFest on Twitter, you already know that whoever manages their account is an American hero. Couple this with the fact that social media is very serious business these days – no, really, the Internet is super serious – and it only made sense to ask this mystery tweeter to compile a "How To Tweet" clinic for us. Also, remember to pick up your Riot Fest tickets for Chicago and Denver if you haven't yet.

So I know it's Thursday, but a couple things got swapped around last second, and so there was a bit of a delay and change on my latest installment of Behind the Bits; things will be back to normal next Wednesday with my guest Andy Kindler. For now, though, head on over to my blog to listen to my half-hour chat with the always-hilarious podcast master Jimmy Pardo. Slight disclaimer: while the audio is far better than it was on my previous chat with Neil Campbell, there's still some kinks being worked out.
