Our friends Steel Panther have a new song and video just in time for the weekend. The track is called "That's When You Came In" and it's a bit of a slow tune for the band. The song is from the upcoming CD/DVD release Live From Lexxi's Mom's Garage, due February 26.

The Scorpions, Disturbed and Five Finger Death Punch will headline Rocklahoma. The Pryor, Oklahoma based festival is set for Memorial Day weekend. I can't believe it's the 10th anniversary already. I went to the original - and real - Rocklahoma... and several versions after. Sometimes I miss going... then I remember how much the festival format has changed, how few (if any) of my friends still go year after year and the cost to stand in a field in the Oklahoma heat and I'm okay with passing on the event.
The pre-sale is already open, so if you're going, you might as well get your tickets before the price increases.
