The band couldn't turn down a deal from the restaurant it's obsessed with. In exchange for $800 worth of burritos (surely enough to feed five teenage boys for a month or two) and some new threads -- shirts, sweatshirts and backpacks emblazoned with the eatery's logo -- Bluewall Audience played the grand opening of the first freestanding Chipotle in Goodyear on January 7. The sponsorship has Eljof's head spinning. He says it's simply the coolest thing that's ever happened to him.
You know that song "Coin-Operated Boy"? Sure you do -- the Edge 103.9 plays it all the time. Well, the band responsible for the catchy tune, Boston's Dresden Dolls, is hitting up The Sets in Tempe on January 25. Besides its heavy-rotation single, the enigmatic, quirky synth-punk duo of pianist Amanda Palmer and drummer Brian Viglione is creating a buzz with live performances that blend cabaret and vaudeville theater. A show like that shouldn't be missed.
There's a catch, though. The only way to get tickets to the Dresden Dolls show is by belonging to the Edge's mailing list, known as Edge Insiders. All members will get an e-mail on January 17 with an RSVP link for the show, and the first 300 people to sign up will get a pair of tickets.
