TUPAC LIVES: HOLOGRAM PAC HITS COACHELLA



Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg closed Coachella 2012 in style. Using futuristic, next level technology and the vision of Dre, Digital Domain and AV Concepts brought Tupac back from the dead. Check out the video. It's pretty insane. According to some reports, Snoop and Dre are thinking about taking Holo-Pac out on tour. The hardest working (dead) man in showbiz.

CYBER TRACKS: MARGATE (FT. NOFX'S EL HEFE)

NOFX guitarist Aaron 'El Hefe' Abeyta and his wife Jen have a label called Cyber-Tracks. Weird name, I know - what do they sell, fluorescent crop tops and shiny silver g-strings?

Anyway, LA three-piece Margate is working with said label. And, happy with the idiom "it's not what you know but who," their new single "Rock'n Roll Reserve" was remixed, produced by and soloed on by - you guessed it - El Hefe. Warning, the video below is extremely awkward.

Grab a copy of the new and improved "Rock'n Roll Reserve" single here.

LAWRENCE ARMS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY DVD GETS A RELEASE DATE, FINALLY...

"That's right! After three years, a long silence, an audit by the ever-courteous IRS and a lot of speculation, we here at Lawrence Arms HQ are pleased to announce that the long awaited 10th anniversary DVD shot live at the Metro is finally coming out, courtesy of Fat Wreck Chords and Crankstrap Productions. To answer the question on everyone's mind: I don't know what the fuck took so long, but it had something to do with the fact that I guess there was something weird about Neil on the undoctored footage and so we had to get a group of specialists to go in and meticulously remove his gigantic robot dong from each frame. Whatever".

An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance is due out June 5 on Fat Wreck. For more info and to pre-order (like me), go here...
