Music News and A Plug For the Guy Who Paid For 10% Of My Law School Education

I really don't have much music news. I just was really excited to see that Morrissey is going on a North American tour beginning April 27. The tour starts in Stockton, CA because everyone knows Morrissey plays real well in Stockton. I guess the theory is that if he sucks real bad that no one will notice there and then he can cancel. Shows are also planned for Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Bowl.

If you are going to be in LA tonight or tomorrow, then I encourage you to stop by Largo and see Glen Phillips of Toad The Wet Sprocket fame in concert. Glen and the guys in Toad literally paid for about 10% of my tuition and expenses in law school by playing 3 shows a year for 3 years for me and I am eternally grateful to him. He keeps asking for 10% of my earnings in return, but instead I thought I would just plug his shows and hope you can stop by. Ask him to play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and tell him to put on some damn shoes too.
The videos are a Glen Phillips song, and a Toad song.
