It's always cool when rock stars reach out and let you know when they're hitting your humble little town.

Jeff Gutt from Stone Temple Pilots sent us a video from the middle of paradise or somewhere. Look at all that greenery around him! Won't he be surprised when he gets to Lubbock. (Hey, at least the cotton is green right now.)

Stone Temple Pilots are coming back large with a new singer and two big hits. We're looking forward to catching those along with all of the Stone Temple Pilots classics this Wednesday night (Sept. 19th) at the Lonestar Pavillon. It should be a fairly early show, with doors at 7 p.m.  and the show starting at 8 p.m. As far as we know, only one band, Dirty Hooks, will be opening.
