-- Tbt* photog Luis Santana checked out Tarpon Springs rapper 2 Pistols' birthday bash Thursday night at Temple Lounge in Ybor City, and said Javon Black, DJ Shotgun and Tom G. were all in the house. That's 2 Pistols and Tom G. above.

-- Maynard James Keenan, frontman for Tool and A Perfect Circle, will be at Orlando's Whole Foods from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. today to sign bottles of his wine. You heard us.

-- Not only is KMFDM coming to Jannus Landing, it's the last show of their upcoming U.S. tour ... and it's taking place on Halloween. Yikes.

-- Select Start has unveiled a slew of new tour dates, including a gig July 10 at Club Fuze and a slot on the Warped Tour July 26.

-- Cecil Warren played jazz on Lawrence Welk, played keyboards at bars around St. Pete, and was a fun-loving janitor at the State Theatre. He died May 29.

-- Check it: Funkghost is on Wikipedia. (And his page cites Soundcheck as a source. Spooky.)

-- Crash Mitchell has set the lineup for his 40th birthday bash July 17 at New World Brewery: Crash Mitchell Five, Rebekah Pulley, The Tim Version, Jen Shamro, and Flat Stanley.

-- Is one of Tampa's best-known music blogs calling it a day?

-- Recent Artists of the Day Klik recently performed one of those Hot Topic acoustic shows, and they recorded the moment for posterity. Get the video after the jump.
