SoundBytes: Motion City Soundtrack, Bon Jovi, Anvil and more
-- Motion City Soundtrack, above, are coming to the State Theatre on April 24, alongside A Rocket To The Moon, Sing It Loud and Fun.
-- OneRepublic has canceled their slot at this year's Strawberry Festival due to a schedule conflict. As a result, Switchfoot will play the entire 3:30 p.m. show on March 6. Sadly, this means we're unlikely to see a Timbaland cameo in Plant City.
-- Want to appear onstage with Bon Jovi during his April 17 concert at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa? Well, now you can, in a semi-lame Web 2.0 kind of way. Upload your best video of yourself performing Livin' On A Prayer at this Web site. They'll pick a winner from each city, and that video will play on a screen behind the band while they play the actual song. Click here for the details.
-- Free music from Light Yourself on Fire. Is that something you might be interested in?
-- Once again: Phoenix is not coming to Tampa. Quelle surprise.
