In case we hadn’t mentioned it, SXSW was dope. And what exactly was the dopest part? Body shots with Michael Stipe? Kelsey Grammer quietly singing the outro to Frasier over and over by himself at a hotel lobby piano? No and no. I think it’s safe to say that cooling out with Fab 5 Freddy was proooobably the highlight. Check it.

Big coupla weeks for shows, peoples. Couldn’t help but get on the innanet and holler about it. First (and perhaps weirdest) we have Dessa’s psuedo-real performance at IPR on Thursday the 6th at 8:00pm CST. This is what’s happening: Dessa will be headlining the show with several hand-picked openers, and despite the venue’s limited “actual capacity” the whole thing will be streamed live via the … Read More
