today is Pi (3.14) day!

Dave Grohl’s SXSW Keynote Speech from earlier today in Austin, TX…contains some strong language, you’ve been warned!

for 3/15…since they are playing SXSW tonight, and we are featuring the new single “Soothe My Soul” on the Workday Wrap at 6pm as the New Song of the Day, here’s their recent Live on Letterman set!
