Want to see Jack's Mannequin and O.A.R. for free tomorrow night in Seattle at the Moore Theatre? If so, all I need you to do is answer the following question: Do you think this tour was a good idea? Why or why not? I'll pick the best answer in a couple of hours, the winner will get two tickets to tomorrow's show.

Some blurbs about the Cartel / Hit The Lights tour:
-Last night, Cartel played their first acoustic set because Kevin, the drummer, had to head home for the night to attend his brother's graduation. The band played all of Chroma (give or take) with the exception of "Q" and "A".
-Hit The Lights' singer, Colin, has strep throat so the band may need to drop off of a few shows. Expect details on that soon.

Silverstein have a very important update regarding the Take Action tour. The Tampa show has been cancelled due to the venue being shut down. They have added a headlining show in Gainesville, FL @ Common Grounds (tickets $7) on March 10th. Also, the band will not be performing in South Carolina next week, but the show will still be going on without them.

Casket Salesmen have left an update regarding their upcoming plans.
Casket Salesmen Updatewe are really close to finishing guitars for "Art Sandwich" "Feeling Ten Feet Tall" and "I'll Buy That for a Dollar".....These are my personal favorites of the six songs we have so far. Everything as of right now is a little up in the air...but, I think the plan is to release an EP. More on that to come very soon. We originally planned on doing a full us tour in the fall. We still plan on doing this. But, I think we may do a west coast / western midwest tour....haha, if that makes any sence......I think we wanna go to ca, az, tx, co, ut, wa, & or......just to get our feet wet. Then go back home,...

If you head over to the Nitro Records MySpace page, you can grab a No Trigger banner. If you put the banner up on your MySpace page and send the link to Nitro via MySpace, they'll send you some free goodies. While you're there, stop and listen to "The Honshu Underground," a song from No Trigger's excellent upcoming full-length Canyoneer.
