John Darnielle
I have two pairs of tickets to tonight's benefit show at the Masonic Temple. They go to the first and tenth people that email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: benefit). Include your first and last name (thanks to the Musebox for the contest).

PREVIOUSLY
* John Darnielle, Black Sabbath, a book reading & stuff
* Rock Plaza Central & Dave Hill added to benefit show
* Doug Gillard, John Oliver, Dave Hill, Demetri Martin, etc..
* Mountain Goats - cancel Australia. add a Brooklyn benefit

P.S. I have no idea what the above photo means.

I know this is off topic...but i am surprised u havent reported on the Radiohead disaster in DC this weekend. Aside from hundreds of people being denied entrance...it is showing that Radiohead is full of shit with this "sustainable" tour they are doing.

Most of the venues they are using are not accessible by public transporation...that is the first step towards doing a sustaianable event. I really think Thom and the guys are so full of shit...and selling $40 tshirts made of recyled plastic...give me a break.

Read this article about Radiohead planning this "green" tour..."fans’ travel to and from the shows accounted for the greatest proportion of the CO2 generated during each tour"...why are people not making a bigger deal of this? Because it's Radiohead??

so, what's the dealio tonight? Anyone know what time Mountain Goats take the stage?

yeah, you're right. since everyone in their audience won't be arriving together in a solar-powered train that has enough capacity to transport the thousands of ticket-holders, radiohead shouldn't even bother trying to make a difference.

it's the same in Swedish, too.

Well... In Swedish it's "jag älskar dig" and not "jeg elsker deg". but that's pretty close
