Some News into Rock Father HQ via Press Release:
Silver Wrapper & Star Events have announced the 16th Annual Taste of Randolph Street, taking place June 13-15, 2014 in Chicago, IL and featuring some of the top bands in indie rock today spanning three stages, all benefiting the West Loop Community Organization! This year’s artists include British indie rock band Kaiser Chiefs, who are set to release their latest album Education, Education, Education & War on March 31, 2014; Seattle based pop indie rock band Minus the Bear; California born rockers Delta Spirit, Philadelphia based indie rock band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and many more, plus a DJ Dance Stage hosted by The Mid!
I'm not sure who (if anyone) was actually "fooled" by this, but as I finally catch up on emails here at Rock Father HQ, I thought it was pretty cool that the folks at ThinkGeek actually put out a legit press release for one of their notoriously-awesome April Fools jokes. It's become a running tradition over there for an assortment of fake products to arrive on April 1 each year (some have even become real), and 2013 is no exception. Personally, the STAR WARS Death Star Trench Toss is my favorite, but the PLAY-DOH 3D Printer got the full PR treatment.
Official Press Release: In advance of the release of their new Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, and Green Day ¡Tré! album trilogy, Green Day will look back on their career with the release of the eight-CD boxed set The Studio Albums 1990-2009 on September 4th, 2012. The collection treads the band's meteoric journey from their 1990 debut, 1,039/ Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, through Kerplunk (1992), Dookie (1994), Insomniac (1995) Nimrod (1997), Warning (2000), and American Idiot (2004), to 2009's 21st Century Breakdown.
Rock Father Musicbot 6000 here with a press release from actress Valarie Pettiford, who will release a new collection of original lullabies on September 18...
Valarie Pettiford is a rare breed, a tried-and-true triple threat. From the stages of Broadway to the soundstages of Hollywood, she has charmed audiences with her performances. A Fosse-trained dancer, Pettiford was nominated for her work in the musical revue, Fosse, which paid homage to her mentor. As an actor, she has created characters for which fans still recognize her, such as Big Dee Dee Thorne on the hit sitcom, Half and Half, and Aunt Geneva, whose rehearsal dinner musical number nearly stole Jumping the Broom from co-stars Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine and Paula Patton. For those who have had the pleasure of hearing Valarie Pettiford sing, whether in a musical or one of her women cabaret shows, it is her smooth, decadent and resplendent voice that they remember.
