Florida band Against Me! are currently out on the road with the Foo Fighters, but since Foo singer Dave Grohl has the flu, the tour has been put on hold for a few days. Against Me! aren’t the type of band to rest on their laurels, so they are looking for some gigs. According to their MySpace page, the guys are looking for some shows, saying, “If you live in OKC, Albuquerque, or Las Vegas (or somewhere on the way to any of those places) and can help us out with a show, any kind of show, drop us a line.” The guys are scheduled to play Reno, Nevada alongside the Foos on Friday night.
Marilyn Manson is fighting back against criticism that his music influences teenagers to act out on violent urges that leads to tragedies such as the Columbine High School Shooting.

The inaugural Vineland Festival, which was set to take place from August 8th to the10th in Vineland, New Jersey, has been moved back by a full year. According to Billboard.com, the festival’s producers moved the event to summer 2009 because of the overall festival traffic in the Northeast at that time.
Basically, since Coachella producers announced last week that they would be hosting a new summer festival called All Points West during the same dates at Liberty State Park in New Jersey, Vineland got the shaft. Either way, you can look forward to seeing Radiohead in New Jersey at some point this year.
