10/2 – RJD2 has a new album coming Tuesday (10/8)…here’s a cool new track!

10/3 – by now, you’ve probably heard Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”…here’s the acoustic duo version…can’t blame Aloe Blacc for trying to let people know it’s HIM who is singing words HE wrote on the track!

10/4 – Meat Puppets are in Cville Sunday at The Southern!  And listen for them in the Corner Lounge that afternoon too…here’s something from their 2009 album –

a funny one from their pre-guesting-with-Nirvana-on-MTV-Unplugged days…
