Billy Bob Thornton on tour

27 May

If you’re a super-huge Billy Bob Thornton fan or if you troll Pollstar.com more than I do, this post won’t be news to you.

So, sorry if this is a bit late, but I wanted to let you cats know about a special tour that’s coming through the Southeast later this year.

Billy Bob Thornton (“Sling Blade,” “Monster’s Ball,” “Mr. Woodcock,” and, a lot more) and his band, The Boxmasters, are releasing a CD on June 10 and then touring the Southeast later this year.

Close dates include:

Birmingham, AL – Zydeco – July 29

Jackson, MS – Hal and Mal’s – July 30

Huntsville, AL – Merrimack Hall Performing Arts Center – Aug. 1-2

Memphis, TN – Hi-Tone – Aug. 6

Calling all Fanfic writers

27 May

If you write fanfiction and live in Northeast Mississippi, Scene is looking for you.

I want to do a cover story for Scene on fanfiction writers that live in this area.

You have to live in Northeast Mississippi, and it would be cool if you’ve been published on a fanfic site or with any other kind of fanfic collection.

If you’re younger than 18, make sure you’ve OK’d this with a parent.

Basically I want to talk to fanfic writers about what they do, how they come up with stories, etc. And I’d need to take your picture! 🙂

Contact Sheena Barnett at (662) 678-1580 or sheena.barnett@djournal.com.

Thanks!
