Some help for planning your rock and roll summer

Courtesy of Time Magazine comes this list of websites that could help you plan your rock and roll summer escapades.

FatLens.com– “A new site that scours the web for the cheapest concert tix, even if they’re on Craigslist or by an obscure online discount broker.”

Brownpapertickets.com– “If mega-stadiums aren’t your thing, nab seats for more intimate settings using (this site) which specializes in small and midsize venues. The good news: its fees are just a fraction of what Ticketmaster charges.”

Mojam.com– For info on the tour schedules of your favourite bands.

Pollstar.com– Pollstar is the bible of the touring industry. If a band is on tour, Pollstar will cover ‘em.

Star500.com– A great site for concert merchandise for more than 1500 bands.

From PAs to lighting trusses, Instrument Pro has what you need to make yourself heard. Check ‘em out.

The Tragically Hip turn 20 and they need your help

The Tragically Hip have been together for 20 years and to celebrate they are putting together a 2 disc compilation career retrospective. The cool thing about it is that you will decide what is to go on it. You can make your voice heard by going to this site and voting for your choice. A tough choice as recently I have been listening to more of their lesser-known songs like “Don’t Wake Daddy” and “The Apartment Song.”
