– The Cadillac Black are playing a record release gig at the Basement on 4.20, to celebrate their April 17th self-titled release.
– Forbes wants to know if major labels are extinct, talks about Nashville’s own Thirty Tigers.
– Mojo gives Jack White’s new one 5 stars, claims it was recorded in Memphis. So according to people in England all cities in Tennessee are interchangeable. That’s cool, I always wanted to say I lived in Bell Buckle. Side note: I have heard this record and it’s 100% worth the stellar review. In other Jack White news, he just released a record that is impossible to hear.
– Saturday is the deadline to submit materials for the AMA showcase selection. Enter here.
– Tomorrow is the last day to enter to win tickets to Ben Kweller’s Mercy Lounge gig. Head over to Grimey’s to drop your name/card/etc.
