Attention all alley cats and Go-Go's fans! The 5th Annual Bowling for Boobies is happening next Tuesday in Universal City, CA and Philadelphia, PA, and though the bowling teams are now full, you can still pop in and cheer on teams like the Bon Temps Bombshells and Livin' on a Spare.

The Raveonettes are one of those bands I've been listening to on and off since high school -- I was always kind of into them, but never jazzed enough to sing their praises on the Internet.
