Incoming: David Sedaris, Atticus Tour, Boys Like Girls, Skinny Puppy, Tech N9ne

 contestants coming, and that's not the only big show coming in October, as Boys Like Girls, the Atticus Tour, and Tech N9ne all bring their shows through town. Still, the thing we're most excited about is not a concert but a speaking date by author David Sedaris in May. Sure, it's a ways off, but you'd be wise to line up tickets to see the Naked author Talk Pretty One Day (that day is May 1).

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
