Your daily dose of national music news for Thursday, July 9, 2009...
- Mastodon is getting its very own premium lager! Too bad it's only a limited run of 200 bottles.
- Mariah Carey is worried that she let people down with her horrible rendition of "I'll Be There" at Michael Jackson's long and over-the-top memorial. Don't worry, Mimi. You did.
- Beck has launched an interview series on his website that will feature artists, musicians and writers. He may or may not talk about hot dogs and how to look really cool.
I guess Iggy Pop doesn't really like the state of modern rock music...?

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
