The Closing Bell

05:01 PM Tuesday 8/5/08 |   |

We have new dates for Relient K, Barry Manilow, Anberlin and Raul Malo. We have links to items about Tim McGraw fighting copyright infringement suit, The Police trying not to fight, Gnarls Barkley trying to be somewhat normal, Lost Highway's newest member, songs banned by the BBC and wireless music for rich folks. Hmmmm ... Looks like we have a pretty good last update of the day!

Overnight Sensation …

The following two items scheduled to post within the next 16 hours were written by our writers while they were naked. Paints a rather unsettling mental image, doesn't it?
