SORT BY Relevancy
Name someone who has had more influence over the flow of modern rock -- where noise and rhythm meet mystery and beauty -- over the last 25 years than Charles Thomson, aka Black Francis, aka Frank Black. Black Francis is the stage name adopted by Thompson during his years of global domination with the Pixies, from the group's '86 formation in Boston until 1993 when the winds of change blew. (And oh, was there joy in Mudville when the Pixies reuned and toured anew beginning in 2004!)
Thompson's next nom de rock was as Frank Black, often in the bandleading context of Frank Black and the Catholics. Thompson released many a wondrous album under his Frank Black moniker, demonstrating an ear for skewed but perfect rock songsmanship. He returned to the Black Francis name for '07's rocking Bluefinger, a concept album about the life and death of Dutch painter/rocker Herman Brood.
Still working under as Black Francis, he released the sexually charged NonStopErotik in 2010. Abbabubba, a B-sides and demos collection, arrived in 2011, along with The Golem, Francis' score for the 1920 silent film of the same name. Rejoice! Black Francis is hitting the road this very week with Reid Paley:

About Weird Al:
Few would have guessed that "Weird Al" Yankovic, who as a shy, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show, would go on to become the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history with over 12 million album sales. Now entering his fourth career decade, he has won 3 Grammys (with 14 nominations) and countless awards.
In addition to his recordings and world-famous music videos, Yankovic is also well-known for his cult-hit feature film UHF (1989), his late ‘90s CBS Saturday morning series The Weird Al Show and the numerous AL-TV specials that he’s made for MTV and VH1 over the years. With release of his children’s book When I Grow Up (HarperCollins, 2011), Al added "New York Times Bestselling Author" to his resume. An app version of the book for the iPhone and iPad, which recently won a Webby Award, is also available. His follow-up to this title was My New Teacher and Me! , released June, 2013.
Weird Al, along with his band of three decades, has performed over 1,000 career concerts and continues to tour with his rock and comedy multimedia show throughout the world.

, my name is Jan, and I am an author of three published books. I am sending you this message on the basis of a referral from one of my internet friends, with whom I have been in contact for a while. He knows that I am an author, and he also knows that due to the fact that I am classified disabled due to the fact that I suffer from bi-polar/schizo-effective disorder, adhd, and severe agoraphobia, that I do not have a whole lot of money or ways to let people know about my books. He suggested that I contact you and told me that you do shows on people who are trying to make their dreams come true. Well, I am casting myself upon your mercy and praying that you will read the manuscript for my last published book that i am including as an attachment with this email, along with two different versions of advertising fliers I created to try to promote the books. The fliers list all of the links where you can get the books. All of the artwork on the covers of all three of the books is mine, as are the interior graphics on all three books. I am fifty two years old, and I am living in government housing. I have been trapped here for eighteen years, and I do not want to die here. The story that I am sending you is the last one written and published. It is a fantasy story filled with pixies, dragons, magic and adventure. Please ma'am, would you at least take the time to read it and see if it is worthy enough to possibly promote on your show?
You may reach me at email@example.com or by phone at 1-903-844-8416 1-903-844-8416 .
I will be anxiously and prayerfully awaiting your response. All I ask is that you please not leave me waiting too long, for both hope and faith are dimming fast.

Dan is an experienced performer and recording artist, having shared the stage and the studio with a diverse collection of commercially and critically successful artists. He began his career with Rane, an award-winning rock ensemble who, in addition to becoming a success in their own right, opened for such acts as The Allman Brothers Band, The Jerry Garcia Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Wilco, Rusted Root, and Santana. After working with Rane, Dan became a freelancer, playing bass and cello with artists like Simon Kirke (of Free, Bad Company, and Ringo Starr’s All-Star Band), Kurtis John (of The Last Goodnight), Jennifer Hartswick (of the Trey Anastasio Band), Sean Kelly (of the Samples), and Rex Fowler (of Aztec Two-Step). His innovative and tasteful cello playing can be heard on recordings from innumerable artists, notably Frank Black (of the Pixies) and Mark Mulcahy. Dan appears on several tracks on Mulcahy’s 2005 release, In Pursuit of Your Happiness, an album that Thom Yorke of Radiohead called the best of that year.
Dan is also a successful songwriter and composer. His style ranges from classically influenced chamber music to pop-rock songs, and he has been equally successful in both genres. His portfolio includes works for a variety of ensembles including chamber ensembles, choir, accompanied solo vocalists, and symphony orchestra.

Face The King is an independent alternative hard rock band based out of New York that has redefined the New York rock scene with their arena size sound, both live and on record.
Face The King is Eric Zirlinger (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dan DelVecchio (lead guitar, keyboards, backup vocals), Joey Dammacco (bass, synth, backup vocals), and Randy Palumbo (drums, percussion). Their second EP, “The Burning & The Falling Down,” produced by Steve Haigler (Brand New, The Pixies, Fuel) has received critical praise and glowing reviews in print, on the web, and local/out of state radio.
With their newly released preview EP, "THE SOUND," already receiving high praise in anticipation for their full length album, Face The King is touring the New York tri-state area - recently with a packed headlining show at Gramercy Theatre. They are also three time winners of the Ernie Ball Battle of The Bands, making their first appearances at the Rockstar UPROAR Festival and Vans Warped Tour during the summer of 2012 (w/Staind, Shinedown, Godsmack, New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Juliet Simms, & more), and a second Vans Warped Tour appearance during the summer of 2013 for their hometown crowd at Nassau Coliseum. Believing that the live show is an experience that is shared between the band and the audience, Face The King is earning a reputation as a band you need to experience live. Face The King is not waiting for a label to hand them a deal – they are earning it the way it was meant to be earned: by hitting the road and making new fans. Face the King returns on Tuesday, August 13, at 8:30pm EST.
