The W: The Dirty Heads, The Menzingers, Kristian Bush, Tony Orlando, and Gridiron Alumni
First Posted: 3/3/2014
…are The Dirty Heads?
Not a bunch of unsanitary folk, as the name suggests. The Dirty Heads are a reggae band from Huntington Beach, Calif., and you may be familiar with their tune “Lay Me Down.”
SLP concerts has just announced that the group will come to the Sherman Theater on April 10, with tickets for the show on sale now.
Tickets can be purchased via ticketmaster.com, charge by phone at 800.745.3000, at all Ticketmaster retail locations, and at the Sherman Theater Box Office. Tickets are $20 in advance and $23 day of show.
More information is available at slpconcerts.net. Fans can also visit SLP Concerts on Facebook at facebook.com/slpconcerts.
…have The Menzingers been up to?
A lot, as the Philadelphia-based band recently announced the release of its new album, “Rented World,” slated for April 22.
This is the fourth studio release for the band and the follow-up to 2012’s “On the Impossible Past.”
Fans can listen to a new track off “Rented World” and watch the video for “In Remission” by visiting noisey.vice.com/blog/the-menzingers-in-remission-song-rented-world-stream.
The Rust Belt punks are in a crucial period of growth. Now in their mid-20s, members Greg Barnett (guitar/vocals), Tom May (guitar/vocals), Eric Keen (bass), and Joe Godino (drums) seek a greater wisdom in life, even if they are old enough to know better. This theme strongly permeates throughout the album.
“Things start to feel a little more serious,” May said in a press release. “When we were younger, we wrote fiery songs because, at that age, it’s your worldview. Now I look at the world and think, ‘Well, maybe I’m not right all the time.’”
Fans are invited to pre-order “Rented World” by visiting themenzingersstore.com. Those who missed the band on their recent U.S. dates with label mates Off With Their Heads can expect future tour plans to be announced later in the year.

…can you get the chance to step onto the gridiron one last time?
Gridiron Alumni has been doing fundraising alumni games for years, raising money for local schools and charities, and they’re looking to bring a game to the area.
The organization travels the nation pitting old football rivals against each other one more time. Hundreds of players and thousands of fans swarmed stadiums to watch their hometown heroes strap it on one more time. Players from all local area high schools are invited to register to play.
Players are needed to sign up for their alma mater, and the first 40 players on each team get to play. The team that gets 30 people registered first gets home field advantage. The games are set for the spring. If you or someone you know is interested in putting on the pads one more time, visit gridironalumni.com to register.
