Priceonomics has posted a list estimating what it would cost to book your favorite band.
Before you read these lists, a few things should be clarified. First of all, they aren't perfect: a few acts are out of place, or suspiciously off -- we'll try to address these below. You'll also notice that there are a few anomalies, and acts that aren't music-related (ie. Myth Busters, who you can rent for a mere $100k); Degy books speakers and corporate entertainment acts too, and a few slipped into these listings. Lastly, keep in mind that these lists aren't comprehensive and only contain artists booked through Degy.

Following the controversy that surrounded the costume Macklemore wore at a recent surprise show, the rapper has posted an apology and explanation over on his website.
My intention was to dress up and surprise the people at the show with a random costume and nothing more. Thus, it was surprising and disappointing that the images of a disguise were sensationalized leading to the immediate assertion that my costume was anti-Semetic. I acknowledge how the costume could, within a context of stereotyping, be ascribed to a Jewish caricature. I am here to say that it was absolutely not my intention, and unfortunately at the time I did not foresee the costume to be viewed in such regard....

Nick Hipa, former As I Lay Dying guitarist and current Wovenwar member, has written a post about his thoughts after the Tim Lambesis trial.
Last Friday I sat in a courtroom to support a friend. For the better part of a decade our professional and personal lives were woven in a relationship akin to family. As if family, the intention of my attendance was to publicly acknowledge the deep care and compassion I hold for this individual.

I watched as she searched for the strength to behold her transgressor for the first time in over a year since learning of his plot to have her murdered. I listened to her describe the love she once possessed for this man whom she adored, trusted, and...

PETA put together an animated video to open for Morrissey's nationwide tour. It's in the replies.
Every year, 8 billion chickens are orphaned, stuffed into severely crowded sheds, and trucked to slaughter. "Someday," a new video created by PETA and animated by Anna Saunders, is scheduled to be featured on rock icon Morrissey's nationwide tour. The video takes viewers on a harrowing journey as they witness—through the eyes of one terrified bird—the typical experience of chickens raised for meat. Will our young chick survive what 8 billion chickens each year cannot?
