* JEFF the Brotherhood announced a bunch of new tour dates, including a string of hot-rockin' nights with The Greenhornes and King Tuff. They've also got their own skateboard deck, made in Germany, and you can pre-order one of those right now. We've heard about some other exciting things for the brothers, but we've got to keep a lid on that for now. [JEFF the Brotherhood]
* I was flipping through my copy of Venues Today today and saw that our own Predator-y gigantiplex, Bridgestone Arena, is ranked second in the country in gross ticket sales! OK, fine, I don't actually get Venues Today, I read it in a press release. "From Dec. 16, 2010, through Jan. 15, 2011, Bridgestone Arena sold more than $4 million in tickets," the press release says. Thanks, Kid Rock!
* Tallest Trees' Dabney Morris has a new side project, and it's called Tyrannosauricorn. A Tyrannosauricorn is a mythical beast, half T-Rex, half unicorn, made from delicious milk chocolate. At least that's the vibe I'm getting. [Tyrannosauricorn]
