• After eight years of being one of the most in-demand party bands in town, GRUPO ESPERANZA have just one last show left in them: April 1 at the Empire. People looking for a working band, starting practicing your Latin beats.

DEAD SEASON have a name for the next EP — The Negative NUMBers. Look for it in June.

• We don't have a title, but we do have a date for the LINE OF FORCE CD: May 21 at the Big Easy.

• While KURT BAKER practices up for covering the entirety of Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True for June 14's Cover to Cover night at the Big Easy, he's got a new single to back. "Don't Steal My Heart Away" is his first original release since his LEFTOVERS days, and features KRIS RODGERS, GEOFF USELESS, MIEK RODRIGUE, JOSH MALIA, and CRAIG SALA, in a monster collection of local rockers. Grab it off Baker's Bandcamp site kurtbaker.bandcamp.com.
