If you're a loyal reader of all the New Times blogs you may have spotted a few familiar bylines over on our news blog, Valley Fever.
All our coverage related to the tragic shooting in Tucson is there for convenience sake, but in case you missed some of the music-related (and kinda-sorta music related) headlines, here are a few stories to check out:
- Calexico's Joey Burns on Giffords, Upcoming Show at Corona Ranch
- National Public Radio Apologizes for Accidentally Declaring Gabrielle Giffords Dead
- What Music Did Jared Loughner Listen to? Would Prog Metal Surprise You?
Pay special attention to that last one -- everyone in the national media is going bonkers over the fact that Loughner used the song "Bodies" from Drowning Pool in one of his videos, but it appears he is more into underground prog metal acts like Fear Before.
