News: It Keeps You In The Know.

Here's a small collection of newsworthy tidbits surrounding our buzzing scene:

***ANNOUNCEMENT: JIL STATION HAS CANCELLED THEIR PERFORMANCE TONIGHT AT 10 HIGH DUE TO SINGER KYLE DREADEN'S LARYNGITIS. GATES OF BERLIN AND TENTONIC WILL STILL BE PLAYING. THANK YOU.

*The Futurists kick off a sweet tour through the midwest on Monday at the Masquerade with The Working Title.

*Second Shift is doing quite well with their "Power in Numbers" video, which was directed by Elizabeth Starkey. They entered Paper Magazine & Jack Spade 1st Annual Un-Hollywood Digital Film Contest and made the final top 6 videos. Very cool.

*I talked to the guys in the Beggars' Guild last weekend, and they're currently in the studio laying down some tracks, which is awesome, because I want the CD. Anxiously awaiting...

*Next Friday night, Bain Mattox will be playing an acoustic show at the Loft. It's early, at 7:00pm, so you can catch it before you head to 10 High for Election Day of the Dead (because I know that's where you plan to be).

*Next Saturday night, the 11th, Atlanta will be lucky enough to host Leslie from Charleston. One of the last times they were in town, their van was involved in some kind of gangster shootout, and bears bullet holes from the whole experience. They're playing the 585.

*Jon Harris & The Sin Hounds must be doing something right, because their album, Story to Tell, is one of the top 25 in rotation on WRFG 89.3 FM.

*Greg Hester (if you don't know who he is, you should change that) has set his CD Release party for his latest, Souldust, at Blind Willie's on November 28th.

*The Loft/Vinyl is throwing this huge after Thanksgiving thing on November 24th called Turkey Jam. I'll have more info on it later, but right now, I know there will be 10 bands, and lots of alcohol, and it provides an excuse to get away from the family.

*Kill Gordon put new songs off their impending album up on MySpace.

*Snowden will be returning to Atlanta from CMJ in NY to play Smith's Olde Bar on Tuesday night, November 7th. I'll be downstairs in the Atlanta room to see Jonathan Eller.

*Like Clockwork has a podcast on iTunes. They're also looking for a bass player, and one that doesn't suck ass. If that's you, then contact them.
