I think this is the coolest thing. I remember when Courtney Love did the same thing on MTV2 a long time ago and she just had her friends on and watching her babble on was hypnotizing.
Might be too late by now, but you can still try and RSVP to be a guest at the show at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include name, age, and phone #.
PS...Tickets are on sale for T&S @ Southpaw 8/2. Hiro sold out before I even knew they were gonna be in town. I like Southpaw better anyway. All 5 National shows are still sold out.
