We've got locals on TV, grubbing for MySpace attention and offering up new music. Dive in.
Those who watched One Tree Hill may have done a double take when you heard "Elephants As Big As Whales" by PlayRadioPlay! during the CW show. PRP did get some prime-time TV love, and, now, will be back in town 6 p.m. Sunday, May 25, for a show at the Ridglea Theater. Tickets cost $15 in advance, $20 day of show.
In an effort to promote its upcoming show at the Granada, Black Tie Dynasty is holding a contest for a silkscreen poster autographed by the band. To enter, make the flyer for the May 24 show your default image on MySpace, and then message the band with your e-mail address. The winner will be selected at random and announced at the Granada show. The concert starts at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $10-$15.
Faux Fox has just posted a new track, "Personal Best," on MySpace. The song is set to be on the forthcoming album All That Remains on EXO Records. Hopefully, Fox will be kind enough to let people download it eventually. For now, stream your hearts out. -- Chelsea Ide
