Metallica’s Orion Music + More Festival is taking to the Motor City in June for its second year…once again, Metallica is headlining and they’re bringing along the Red Hot Chili Peppers and a bunch more!
In their month long contest “Save Your Token” the results came in this morning at midnight when the 80-year-old board game (and my favorite) Monopoly announced it was out with the old and in with the new.
See that? That is what Vance Albitz’s living room is looking like lately. If we have our way, it is gonna look a lot more packed than that in the next few days! I don’t know if you had a chance to hear him with Stu, Tiffany, and Jimbo this morning, but that is a young man with a great plan. After reading an article asking some of our troops what they would most like to get in a box from home where the answer was “A couple of gloves and a ball so we could play catch”, Vance started up the Gloves4Troops web site with his father, and set a goal of collecting 1000 gloves and balls to send out to our troops overseas. Such a pure and simple joy, playing catch, and all of us here at KCAL were moved to find some way to help out. Now Vance plays minor league ball in the St. Louis Cardinals organization, and he’s got to report to spring training on February 18th, so it’s up to us to help him get closer to his goal before then.
If you’ve got an old glove taking up space in the garage, or a few baseballs that are in good shape that you could manage to live without, or if you’ve got 20 bucks that you could kick down to help sponsor sending a box to our troops overseas, please help out. Check out his web site to see how to get your things to him, or bring your gloves or balls down to the station and we’ll get them to him for you. To make it even easier for you to join the effort, we’ll be sending the KCAL Crew out to the various corners of the I.E. over the next few days. Listen in to find out when we’ll be in your neighborhood! Here’s a really cool article that was written about Vance on ESPN too…
Check this out. This Thursday night there is going to be a celebrity roast of Dee Snider at The Grove in Anaheim presented by Guitar World Magazine and Revolver Magazine. We’re talking about some big names being there too. It’ll feature Penn Jillette from Penn & Teller as the roast master. The panel will include Zakk Wylde from Ozzy’s band and Black Label Society, Scott Ian from Anthrax, Lita Ford, and a bunch more. And, it’ll be broadcast live on AXS TV. Our friends at the charity Music Saves Lives have a package that includes a couple of seats at a table for the roast, dinner and drinks, and red carpet viewing. They’re giving them away to the person who has highest donation to the charity by Thursday morning at 9am. If you’d like to get in on it, hit their page that is selling tickets for their concert coming up next month. You don’t have to buy tickets to their concert, but you can if you like, of course! Anyway, make the donation in the box below where you buy tickets, and good luck on hitting the fun on Thursday night!

Wow. You’ve probably seen Christmas light displays set to music before, but probably not quite like this. Check out this display synched to Metallica’s One, Battery, Hit The Lights, Creeping Death, and more…how much time does it take to put something like this together? It may be early in the season, but I think we’ve found our winner!
Not everyone can sneak in on line shopping while at work so here’s some help for when you get home tonight. Cyber Monday lasts until Midnight tonight and it’s way better than shopping on Black Friday. After all, you can do it in front of the TV with your PJs on! I’ve got a list of websites that compare prices for internet shopping. Click ahead for the sites.
