Because this is the Internet, we are duty bound to report that your pals at MySpace are planning a crazy package tour where incredibly loud, obnoxious music will also blare at you uncontrollably, except this time in real life. (They should only sell tickets in blocks of eight.) It’s co-headlined by Hellogoodbye and Say Anything, the former of which is some emo thing and the latter of which I truly believe to be one of the most important pop-rock acts operating today. (Stop looking at me like that.) Meanwhile, according to the press release, Hellogoodbye’s lead singer is apparently angling for our jobs:
“Hellogoodbye are big fans of MySpace, and I don’t want to brag or anything, but I am a pretty good blogger,” said Forrest Kline, lead singer and guitarist of Hellogoodbye. “MySpace has allowed me to develop my blogging skills and I am thrilled to be on the first ever MySpace tour and further refine those skills by posting post-show blogs.”
If this guy was half the blogger he claims he is he’d be liveblogging his own sets. Piker. And yes, before you ask, we’re going to be covering this. And by “covering this,” I mean Maura is going to be interviewing fans in the parking lot while I do whatever (and I do mean whatever) it takes to get backstage. This also allows me to link to my new favorite blog, which I’ve had no real reason to do yet.
