It's good to have people in your life that are kind enough to share the information they find out about shows, upcoming albums, etc. I didn't post yesterday because there wasn't a whole lot going on. So my friends jump in and send me stuff and this post is from them to you.

You may explode when you see the line up, but we are actually worried you won't be able to stand it. That is what Lollapalooza organizers have to say about this years line up. It will be announced on April 12th. Even better is that you can buy early bird tickets for a flat rate of $165 right now. I went last year and will be there this year. [Buy Tickets Now]

De La Soul are playing the Parish, and best of all it's free! Just go here and RSVP. I was having RSVP withdraw after SXSW so this was needed. Hip Hop legends, don't miss this show!

If you haven't check out the Nine Inch nails sites set up for the release of Year Zero, here is the link to most of them all in one place. You can hear the new tracks as well as some videos. This is such an elaborate concept album. Genius.

And last, a new artist that is worth checking out. Sea Wolf, who will supporting label mates Silversun Pickups on their upcoming tour. I have been listening to it all day and if the tour stopped anywhere near Austin I would get there early.
