FROM THE NEWS NEST: Win tickets to sold out Florence and the Machine show and more.
We’ve been crying over the sold out status of the Florence and the Machine (pictured) show at Oakland’s Fox Theatre for months, kids. Thankfully you can stop trolling Craigslist for outrageously priced resales for the show Nov. 5 and enter to exclusively win free tickets through the band’s Facebook page! Love us because we’re looking out for you.
We always dig seeing celebrity and musician costumes from Halloween, because apparently we like to torture ourselves with how much money they have to buy/make costumes and we don’t. Check out the Spin gallery of “Music’s 10 Best Halloween Costumes” where you can find Courtney Love not acting her age as Tinkerbell, Snoop Dogg as one of our favorite number-loving Sesame Street characters and more.
It’s been quite some time since Garbage, one of our favorite alt-rock bands of the ’90s, topped the charts and we’re so happy to hear that they have come out of hiatus to record. The band plans to tour in 2011. Is it wrong that we want to see the super-hot Shirley Manson in videos again?
