Fordham Info
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I called Fordham about the show, and was told that only Forham students
may attend. No one else may go, even if the tickets were purchased by a
student.
Too bad. I was hoping this was my big chance to see them. =(

LaSalle..Freak Magnet..Modern Rock
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I also am looking for a way to get some tix for the lasalle show, please
email me if you know of anything..
also, I wanted to ask when the femmes new album is set for release, I
know I read it before, but it really slips my mind at the present.
Also, I wanted to ask again if anyone had any word on
that modern rock appearance supposably coming up? Thanks a load..

Kevin

-Pat. Says: Look for the new album mid-May. I guess that’s US release,
dunno about other countries…

Union College Concert!! I am so happy, this will be my first time
going!! I am missing a soccer game, but who cares!? Sorry, I am just
babbling on, but I am much to excited to shut up.

RE: Sex and Candy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
>I don’t think that “Sex and Candy” sounds like the Femmes. When I
>first heard it I thought of The Presidents.. It reminded me of their
>(The Presidents) first album.

The Presidents are cool, they put on the second best show I’ve ever been
to, after the Femmes. But ahead of Rage Against the Machine. Then they
had to go break up. Dammit. They were so happy. If I had to pick one
band that I thought would never break up, it would have been them.

Nick

P.S. *doing Pat’s job* Any more correspondence regarding the
Presidents should be done throught private e-mail.

Sabrina
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hi there.

Okay, I guess it’s probably a blessing in disguise that I haven’t seen
the VF on Sabrina the Teenage Witch episode, but I can’t help but feel
that I am missing out. I haven’t seen the vf on tv in a while and I’m
going into serious withdrawal. Does anyone know how to find out when
that particular Sabrina episode will be on, or of any other times that
the vf will be on anytime soon? Just wondering.

Valerie

-Pat. Says: Check http://www.rockontv.com I think that’s the right
URL. It lists all bands who will be on US tv for the coming
week. As far as Sabrina, you never know. It was on THREE
times last season due to its popularity, so it could be on
again…but IMHO it IS a blessing in disguise you haven’t
seen it. It was painful. The show is awful, with or without
the VF. I should talk…saw it all three times.

Come to Oz
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hiya,
I was just wondering if you know if the Violent Femmes are going
to tour Australia ever again. I know they toured a fair while ago but
I wasn’t into them then, but now I am and I just wondered if you had
heard any rumours?

-Pat. Says: I usually don’t post “when are they coming to…” messages,
but I figured this would be a good time to remind all you
non-North American subscribers that according to the letters
section in the Official Homepage, the band should be gearing
up for a world tour in the fairly near future (Maybe this
year? Certainly before the year 2000). At that time,I will
really need you help in keeping the tourdates up to date,
because I have no idea how reliable Pollstar and TM will be
outside the US.
