Cure for Pain: the Mark Sandman Story

We like to use the word rockumentary any chance we get and here's a great reason: Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story will be playing Tuesday November 13th at the Plaza Theatre, but only if enough people buy pre-sale tickets. Like the subject of any good rockumentary, the Morphine front-man led an equally fascinating and tragic life, influencing countless musicians along the way. We know plenty of you, like us, enjoy Morphine's music so let's make sure this showing happens. Click here for more details and to reserve your tickets!

Braves! Sale!

Big Boi and Elton John discuss Mike Mordecai's career highlights

If musicians as different as Big Boi and Elton John can both cheer for the Braves, then who are we to disagree? In honor of the Braves' Wild Card Playoff Game and Chipper Jones's final season, we're offering 10% OFF your purchase tomorrow. To receive the discount, you must wear some kind of Braves gear. It can be a shirt, hat or commemorative pocket watch--we don't care. Just find some way to show your support. And anyone who has the gall to darken the doors of Decatur CD in a Cardinals shirt tomorrow better be prepared to pay 10% extra.
