News: Aaron Gillespie, Automatic Loveletter, Grizzly Bear and more




-- Aaron Gillespie of Underoath (above) and The Almost has a new blog ... about food. Sample post: he raves about the pork tenderloin at Pete & Shorty's in Clearwater. Check it out for recipes for bratwursts, hamburgers and grouper.

-- The Beauvilles are now a three-piece. Guitarist Chris Tolan has left the band. They're preparing a new EP. Get the details here.

-- Mustard Plug, the Toasters, Voodoo Glow Skulls -- that's a pretty good ska lineup coming to Crowbar on Nov. 20. Tickets are $15.

-- Aestheticized's Jack Spatafora checked out Pitchfork Fest '09. Here's the review. Spoiler alert: He really liked Grizzly Bear. (Bring those guys to Tampa, man!)

-- If you live in Los Angeles, Automatic Loveletter's Juliet Simms is happy to give you voice lessons.

-- Alexander and the Grapes have recorded a new EP.

-- Can you play a musical instrument? American Stage wants your help. They're looking for musical directors and accompanists to participate in cabarets featuring the music of Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mercer, George Gershwin, Stephen Sondheim and more. For details, contact Todd Olson at [email protected].

-- Finally, click here to check out this mp3 of Amerie's Why R U, featuring some guest verses spliced in from one of Soundcheck's favorite femcees, Dynasty. Her next live gig is at Summer Jam Aug. 8 at Jannus Landing. Definitely worth catching live.
