• There aren't too many people who've been around and about the local scene more than MATT SHARDLOW over the past 15 years. He's played with the HOBBES, ZION TRAIN, 8 TRACK, STATE RADIO, and various CLASH OF THE TITANS ensembles, while doing sound at the Big Easy for a spell and being a hired gun in general. This summer will be something of a coming out party for him, though. He's got two projects, DIV KID and NOTHING VENTURED, that will both drop discs. The first hits July 11, the second July 25. Be ready.

• Maybe you know BLIND BILLY BLAKE. Plays at Blue every First Friday? Well, he's reverting back to plain old BILLY CARROLL and he'll be releasing a disc this summer under his given name.

• Things continue to go well for SPARKS THE RESCUE. They leave this week on a tour of Europe opening for ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS. We wonder how that name plays on the Continent...
