Today’s New Release (with locally-written reviews)
• Motion Sickness of Time Travel: Motion Sickness of Time Travel – Reviewed by Marc Masters [Pitchfork].
• Roomrunner: Super Vague EP – Reviewed by Aaron Leitko [Pitchfork].
• Local venue news: We got a press release from the folks at Live Nation about Jiffy Lube Live (formerly Nissan Pavilion) about some of the changes to expect this season:
– Local food trucks will be stopping by the venue at concerts.
– There’s apparently a 32-oz fountain soda for sale that comes with free refills.
– New speakers and upgraded video projectors on the lawn.
– All day-of-show information (parking lot times, set times, permitted items, etc) will be on JLL’s facebook page, facebook.com/JiffyLubeLive.
– There’s also a LiveNation iPhone app– we’re not sure exactly how crucial this is, but it might make buying tickets easier. Check it out at this link.
– Remember that JLL lifted its tailgating ban earlier this year!
