Dirt - Monday, Apr 09

 Happy Easter Monday!   I think Easter is celebrated in Greece today.  Hopefully, it will ease some of the tension there.  What a bummer, eh? Greece is so beautiful.  Hate to see it in turmoil.  OK, onto the news, which is why you’re here!  I see my friend Maynard Keenan will be doing double duty on Jun 23 & 24 at the River’s Edge Music Festival, a new weekend festival in St Paul, MN on the banks of Harriet Island in the muddy Mississippi. It will mark the first time tool and Puscifer, Maynard’s other band, have shared a bill together.  We are hoping a new tool record will be in our future this year.  Which beckons the question, “What’s up with A Perfect Circle?”  I know last I talked to Billy Howerdel last year when APC did some touring, the hope was there would be some new music.  Only time will tell, I guess….Speaking of festivals, Lollalpalooza is set for Aug 3-5 in Chicago’s  Grant Park.  So far, line up is Black Keys, Jack White, The Shins and M83.  More TBA…Halestorm is doing another live chat tomorrow, the day of the release of their “Strange Case of….“  album.  Click here at 7 PM tomorrow night if you want in…Brian “Head” Welch is releasing his band’s Love & Death  “Chemicals” EP  on 4/24.   For more, find it on the Love and Death website.  They’ll be touring with P.O.D. starting Apr 30…Eye Empire (Corey Lowery, Will Hunt)  will be doing a headlining club tour, as well as some dates with Five Finger Death Punch and Volbeat.  See Road Rage on the home page… And lastly, Axl Rose was seen exciting a club in West LA  and TMZ asked if there would be a reunion of the original GNR.  Axl’s response? “Not in this lifetime.”  Douche!…..Happy  43rd to Kevin Martin of Candlebox and Happy 35th today to Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance.
