Colour Revolt, Arrowheart, Mickey Avalon and More in This Week's Issue

In this week's issue, Nicki Escudero brings us the tale of Arrowheart -- a young combo of country-pop singers that have their eyes set on the big time with the guidance the hit-maker who co-wrote Madonna's "Open Your Heart."

We've also got mini-features from M.T. Richards on Colour Revolt (don't call 'em a Christian band) and Lauren Wise brings us a look into the life of glam-rapper Mickey Avalon (there's more to the guy than just partying).

Our issue is rounded out by short previews on The Stone Foxes, MURS, Quarter Inch Crown, Michael McDonald, and H20, as well as our Needle Exchange profile on DJ Evil One.
