Maybe it's just me, but Halloween-themed shows aren't appropriate for just any ol' band. Autovaughn and De Novo Dahl don't exactly strike me as evil. I'm not afraid of any band that has an album called Cats and Kittens. Now, if your band has an album called A Haunting Curse, plays black metal, and is called Goatwhore, then we're on the right track. They're playing at the Muse next Monday, Halloween Eve. According to Goatwhore's myspace page they are influenced by the "sounds of utter madness that take us to a new level of understanding through disturbing tones and an overwhelming purge of depravity," which means they sound like "a formulated ritual of diverse blasphemy to be played as a requiem for your suicide. An uplifting revenge in the battle for your loss of words to prove any God is at fault for our existence." Awesome.
Anybody in the market to buy some obviously stolen music equipment? Nax will hook you up.

The band who is provoking the backlash that might send Maybelline back to its grave...I'll give you one hint:
Burns, schmurns! Who needs a Ken Burns jazz documentary when you've got David Hungate? Sure, Hungate was an original member of pop-rockers Toto, and has backed everyone from Boz Scaggs and Gladys Knight to Barbra Streisand and Conway Twitty, but he's also one of Nashville's top jazzers—on both guitar and trombone. This Sunday, Oct. 29, in the Drink Lounge at Loews Vanderbilt Plaza, Hungate presents "From Bix to Basie," a live performance focusing on the roots of jazz. Accompanying Hungate will be saxophonists Denis Solee and Sam Levine, bassist Dennis Crouch, drummer Tom Giampietro and pianist John Jarvis. Jazz singer April Barrows will sit in for a few numbers. The show runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Admission is $10, and it's a smoke-free event.
That's what Nemesis did!
So it sounds as though you two got signed pretty quickly after moving to Nashville.
JACOB: Well, it happened like lightning. I got a job as a teller at a bank, and a coworker was married to the manager for Mark Chestnutt. He thought we had amazing voices and spent $300 for us to record a pop demo. Through that we ended up with Mike Curb, who signed us over lunch.
JOSH: All very quick and strange.
Does anyone have Logo? If so, can I come over and watch their show?
