Saturday, we're taking a trip east to Stillwater to see Rock the Vine music/wine tasting festival. Fortunately, because one of the bands starts at 12:30, we have to get there on time! Stay tuned for our road trip updates.
Man, this looks so awesome, free live concerts every weekend, non-stop, through Labor Day at Universal City's Universal CityWalk's "5 Towers" concert venue. It starts tonight, June 8th, with performances by The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham and hosted by celebrity stalker Perez Hilton.
Other stars scheduled to appear are American Idol's James Durbin and The Voice's Vicci Martinez, DEV, Tyrese (from Far East Movement)… but it looks like, according to their Spotlight Schedule, there will be lots of DJ battles.
Anyway, it looks like loads of fun, and it's too bad we're in Minneapolis.
Having heard from Melbourne's Clubfeet in a while. Guess what? They have a new single out called "City of Light", you can hear it on soundcloud.
Also, Clubfeet's first ever Australian tour is happening this July 2012. They are keen on warning us that there will be "synchronized dancing".

Baby Monster's City of Lovers EP came out last Tuesday (June 5th). They are a duo (Daniel Sternbaum and Marty Larson Xu) that's known for popular remixes for Gorillaz, Ellie Goulding and Foster The People, etc.
If you want a taste of the EP, you can head over to Under the Radar to hear "Hitchhiker".
The only question I have is: which city is the city of lovers? The two apparently lives in two different cities, but continues to write music with each other.
