New Coldplay single = free

Coldplay’s new record (Vida La Vida) drops this June but lucky for you, the band is giving away it’s new single for free.  The offer lasts just a week so march over to and get your download on.  And if you’re a resident of NYC or London, you can roll with two free performances.  The action is happening at Brixton Academy on June 16 and Madison Square Garden on June 23.

It’s business time

I’ll be a panelist for Emerging Trends in the Music Business discussion at the University of San Diego’s Department of Communication Studies.  April 30 at 7PM.  Good times with local promoters, djs, writers, label owners, musicians and more.  Thanks to Caley for hooking this up.

HBO reunites with Bob & David

Mr. Show‘s Bob Odenkirk and David Cross provided me with some serious laughs during my college years. After four seasons, the show came to an abrupt end along with a public falling out with HBO and Mr. Show’s creators.  Cross went on to Arrested Development and incredibly funny (albeit very underground) stand-up success.  Now, the two are reunited with HBO and seem to be a lot more sympathetic to the business decisions of their previous cancellation.  It’s funny how that works in Hollywood.  Hate, love, hate.  Well, the crew is back with a new comedy pilot called “David’s Situation” and the guys dish an exclusive interview here.  Is anyone else noticing that HBO is getting its ass kicked lately by Showtime?  I’m still sticking with the home box office but I gotta say, “Californication”, “Weeds” and “Brotherhood” are serving up some quality.
