After the thread and article the other day talking about wanting to make sure our music scene was inclusive to, and promoted, LGBTIQ+ bands, there were quite a few people asking for recommendations. A new thread has been created in our general forum with a whole lot of great recommendations. Definitely worth a bookmark and if you have any to add -- please feel free to join the conversation!

The group behind Taking Back Tuesday are trying to trademark the phrase "emo night." Yeahhhh, good luck with that.
Their trademark claim, filed on February 4 by Petracca, is not a particularly strong one—using vague language about what exactly they’re seeking. “We booked and curated the artists for this event as Emo Night. Thats how people know it is us presenting the event,” reads the application, which was filed through LegalZoom.

It looks like a promoter in my hometown messed up and posted a photo online that appears to show quite a bit of this year's Warped Tour line-up. We can't confirm the legitimacy of this leak, but, it is out there now. Attila and Youth and Revolt!? Sign me right up!

On November 1, at approximately 0700 hours, [Wayne] and his wife went to bed. His wife stated that just prior to going to bed, he crushed one-half of a 30 mg oxycodone pill and consumed it.

Wendy Rollins was able to interview Jack Antonoff from Bleachers and Fun.
Originally I was supposed to talk to Jack Antonoff last week but things got nutty and I got a call from Mr Antonoff yesterday. He had a lot going on-as it always is with him. Between Bleachers and Fun, and ---a movie? Yep, that's right, Jack Antonoff is taking it to the screen. He's going to be in a film with Sally Field called Hello My Name Is Doris but he wasn't supposed to be/ it just kind of happened...he'll explain. We talked about his current tour with Bleachers and it seems like he may have an upcoming Philly date about to go public and whats this about Bleachers LP2??

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast begins with a talk about Blink-182 exhaustion and yet our need to talk about Tom DeLonge's new song. I am not a fan. Thomas likes it. We discuss if we're grading Tom on a curve, the overall impact of not having Jerry Finn as a guiding force in the Blink world, and the plausibility of the whole Blink-183 rumors. From there we talk about how underrated Dashboard Confessional seems to be and the band's return, a bunch of albums got announced this week and we touch on a few, and then we finish up the episode answering a question about being self-employed and needing to be self-motivated. Thomas and I share stories about striking the balance...

SXSW has banned most drone usage this year.
"This policy was established after consultation with drone experts, user groups, municipal authorities and aviation safety experts," read a SXSW statement. "While SXSW may make exceptions to this policy if the drones are used within certain trade show areas where safety measures such as tethering to the ground are implemented, the airwaves and/or frequency spectrums generally used in the remote control of drones are too congested during the SXSW event to ensure operation safe from interference."
