The Paper Chase to Appear on NPR; Promises to Speak in Dull Monotone And Beg for Money

Used to be it was Garrison Keillor whistlin' Dixie Chicks (the original, Sweethearts of the Rodeo version) on A Prairie Home Companion; thank God those days are over. On Saturday, National Public Radio's live-music series will feature Friday Night Lights favorites Explosions in the Sky, with Dallas' The Paper Chase opening the set. Catch it live, from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club, at 7:30 p.m. right here -- or just find it later over here. We'll have to catch the reruns, since at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, we will most likely be face-down on the cement in downtown Austin, lying in a pool of our own sick. --Jonanna Widner
