Evan P. Donohue at The End
* Josh Holly was arrested in Nashville for hacking Miley Cyrus' MySpace and Gmail accounts, and grabbing photos of her and whatnot. And why was dude, age 21, hacking Mi-Cy's shit? For the hot pixx? No, because he's a spambot mercenary: "a review of Holly's bank records show he received payments of over $110,000 between Nov. 2007 and July 2008 from companies that paid him to send spam for them." [NPR]

* Speaking of NPR, they'll be broadcasting the Nashville Symphony tonight. Nicholas McGegan will conduct Mendelssohn's Overture to The Fair Melusina, Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22 and Beethoven's Fourth Symphony. That's 7-9 p.m. on 90.3 FM or for all you Vandy kids who don't listen to terrestrial radio, streaming online. [NPR]

* Evan P. Donohue, once described in these pages as a "spindly badass sensitive rocker type," is a finalist in Converse's Get Out of the Garage contest, the winner of which will get to open a six-city tour, record in NYC and get $10,000 — enough for a Fender Gretsch! — worth of equipment from Guitar Center. C'mon, people, don't let a band called Beast Make Bomb beat our local guy. [Get Out of the Garage]

* And The Relatives' Green Machinery got a nice review from Davis Inman, who compares at least one dude in the band to one dude in Vampire Weekend. [American Songwriter]
