* Aaron Robinson — local songster, onetime Imaginary Baseball League frontman and inadvertent porn-score contributor — penned a post for Talk Nerdy 2 Me, a "college life blog brought to you by The National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Robinson talks a bit about the difficulties of balancing academia with rockademia and so forth. While you're at it, hear some of his tunes.
* And from The Department of Next-Level Music Festival Game-Changers: Beginning in 2012, Coachella will be doubling. That doesn't mean twice as many artists, mind you. It means the same lineup will be featured over two back-to-back weekends. This comes as a result of Coachella's passes selling out in just six days this year. Since this year's Bonnaroo tickets also sold out so remarkably quickly, some folks are wondering if the 'Roo honchos will follow suit. When I interviewed Bonnaroo creator and top dog Ashley Capps a couple of weeks ago, there was no mention of a double-up scenario. Capps did, however, mention the fact that he and his fellow 'Roo-ganizers have "thought about different ways of using the site for other events." Hmmm.
