1. B
2. Herrons
3. Perrier

As we've previously reported (TMT News), Dustin Wong is no longer in Ecstatic Sunshine, but the band is forging ahead as David Zimmerman, Matthew Papich, and Kieran Gillen. They're cute. Google them.

And if you like swirling guitar sounds and bad-ass instrumentals, then see these boys on these dates:

Bob Dylan Wins Pulitzer, Tours; TMT Declared “Bob Dylan Week” Last Week

In honor of Bob Dylan winning the Pulitzer, we here in the TMT offices have decided to retrospectively declare last week Bob Dylan Week.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that all the content published last week was related to Bob Dylan. While the connection between a review of the new Man Man CD and an interview with Blitzen Trapper may not seem immediately Dylan-related, TMT’s Bob Dylan Week argued that all current music (absolutely no exceptions) stems from his influential seeds. No, I’m not talking about Jakob Dylan and The Wallflowers (still trekking though, god bless their underachieving souls). I’m talking about the wordy croons of Richard Swift, the early Dylan-era strums of Jim Noir’s guitar, and Islands’ references to religion and gospel that smack of Dylan’s ’80s obsession with the subjects.

But Bob Dylan Week was not simply to remember Bob for a brief moment, only to wallow in the nether-reaches of our collective psyche the other 51 weeks of the year. And it also wasn't just a reminder of the year-round struggle to recognize the Bob in each and every record we currently listen to, review, purchase, download, and enjoy. Instead, Bob Dylan Week was primarily meant to highlight the influence of Bob that's embedded in every second of all music, before and after his birth.

And He’s on tour:

Culture Shock 2008 Featuring Beach House, Dead Child, Blueprint, Immigrants

Two immigrants arrive in Bloomington, IN and are discussing the difference between the Old Country and the U.S. One of them says that he's heard that people in the U.S. eat dogs, and if they're going to fit in, they better eat dogs as well. So, they head to the nearest hot dog stand and order two ‘dogs.’ The first guy unwraps his, looks at it, and, nervously looks at his friend. "What part did you get??"

Haha, stupid immigrants! Anyway, after eating/blowing/inserting the dogs, the two immigrants went to Culture Shock 2008, held on April 19 by Indiana University's studio radio station, WIUX-LP 99.1FM. Featuring awesome acts like Beach House, Dead Child, Blueprint, Mahjongg, and Pattern Is Movement, the annual event was a lot of fun for the two immigrants. And because they are cheap, stingy immigrants (no surprise), they both loved the fact that it was free.

Pissed Jeans to Tour, Their Moms to Do Their Laundry

TMT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: WAYS TO PISS OF YOUR MOTHER

Hey, there, reader. Bored with life? Tired of the same old routine day-in and day-out?

Well, TMT feels you! And that's why we're offering you this helpful PSA to help you shake things up a little. Follow these examples, and you'll be livin' on the edge again before you know it, just like Keith Richards.

1. When's the last time you've pie-faced someone? Load up a paper-plate with some shaving cream and give your boss a call! It's time you started treating everyone you know like a fraternity pledge.
2. Stop mainlining heroine the "old fashioned way" and be creative. Ball point pen? Turkey baster?? Once again, what would Keith Richards do?
3. Commit Regicide. (yeah, yeah, go ahead, look it up already... sheesh)
4. Sneak into first-class on your next airline flight and call all of the flight attendants "sugar tits" while swilling all available free booze like it's going out of style. There's nothing like puking from 30,000 feet to recharge your batteries!
5. Tell your mom that you're WAY into this band Pissed Jeans now, and that you've decided you won't be going to church anymore.

Let the healing begin:

I Am A Broken And Joyless Writer Subject To The Whims And Fancies Of A Pitiless Editor; I Blame Feist And Her Heartless Booking Agent

I refuse! This is the work of unpaid interns. Where the hell's the tourdate kid? The one day he doesn't come to work, Feist rolls in with a scroll of upcoming shows -- bitch has a planner this thick. This many appearances is totally uncalled for. Nobody likes her that much, and no one's going to know about it anyway because I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT. Yeah, that's right, I have self-respect! I deserve a little respect! I'm a god-damned highly paid music journalist working for a premier web-based music news and reviews website (Tiny Mix Tapes). I was hired to hang out with rock stars and write off hotel room mini bar bills, NOT format tourdates.

They can't make me do it. I won't do it. I won't.
