Walking the line

By BOB GULLA  |  May 28, 2008

Last weekend, Hague played the UCLA Jazz/Reggae Festival, gigging with Blue Note soul/folk singer-songwriter Amos Lee. Moving forward, he has been tapped to play guitar for an artist that goes by the name of Hodges. You can catch up on Shaun’s solo stuff, which is also worth more than a passing look, at myspace.com/shaunhague music.

Last Band Standing
Wanna play Lollapalooza? Well, get your ass in gear and start shilling for votes. Sonicbids is sponsoring a chance for your band to win a spot on the 2008 Lollapalooza lineup. Here’s how it works: Go to sonicbids.com and click on the “Get Started” button. You’ll be asked to submit and EPK to enter Round 1. The top 100 vote-getters make it to Round 2. Celebrity judges tap 20 of those top 100 for Round 3. Those top 20 bands upload a few more tracks and the voting continues through mid-July. The five finalists get a gig slot at the Double Door in Chicago, and two of those bands will be chosen by another celeb panel to play Lollapalooza. The selected band will be listed as part of the official lineup and receive an opening slot, a $1000 travel stipend, artist passes for the entire weekend, two hotel rooms for three nights at the Hilton in downtown Chicago, tickets for their friends the day of the band’s show, and tons of other prizes. Runners-up get prizes too. But it all starts with a click and, oh yeah, dig deep. There’s a $5 processing fee. Deadline is June 22.
