Difference between sleep and hungover? Hungover comes with it's own headache.

Bizarre News of the Day

From the Casper Star-Tribune, Matchbox20 bows out of the Cheyenne Frontier Day date and contract, citing rodeo is cruelty to animals. :uhh:

Shouldn't this be more of a country/western venue? What the hell do the organizers think they're doing booking a band from this genre?


CHEYENNE -- Pop rockers Matchbox Twenty have canceled plans to perform during this summer's Cheyenne Frontier Days, and an animal rights group opposed to rodeo says it played a role in that decision.

Frontier Days bills itself as the world's largest outdoor rodeo, held over 10 days each July.

The booking company for Frontier Days, Omaha, Neb.-based Romeo Entertainment Group, confirmed Tuesday that Matchbox Twenty had provided written notice that the band would not be playing at this year's Frontier Days. No explanation was given.

"Our office is working with the Cheyenne Frontier Days staff to assess all alternatives, including potential legal action. Further information will be provided as it becomes available," Romeo President Bob Romeo said in a statement.

Frontier Days officials didn't immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

A person who answered the phone for Matchbox Twenty's manager, Michael Lippman, said she knew nothing about the canceled date and hung up. A phone message left at Lippman Entertainment in Calabasas, Calif., was not returned.

The withdrawal had been announced earlier Tuesday by a Geneva, Ill., group called SHARK, which stands for Showing Animals Respect and Kindness. The president of the group, Steve Hindi, told The Associated Press that he provided the band with video that he believed showed cruelty at last year's Frontier Days rodeo.

"We were watching for the lineup at Cheyenne, because if we found some people with a propensity toward animal care, we were going to get in touch with them," Hindi said.

He said he provided the video to the band through a group called the Sidewalk Angels Foundation, a New York City-based nonprofit created by Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas and his wife, Marisol. The Sidewalk Angels Foundation helps "people who are destitute or homeless" as well as "animals that have been abandoned or abused," according to the group's Web site.

The foundation didn't have a listed phone number, and e-mails to the foundation were not returned.

Hindi said he didn't personally speak with anyone in the band, but learned of the cancellation from Jeff Lamiroult, who is credited as an accountant in the band's album notes.

"They checked that out, I think, for about two weeks before we got a response back from them that they were withdrawing. They didn't just accept our word, they didn't just believe the rodeo propaganda, they looked into it," Hindi said.

Matchbox Twenty last year released its first album, "Exile on Mainstream," after a five-year break. The band is known for late 1990s hits including "3 a.m." and has sold tens of millions of albums.

Not me. I feel kind of sorry for the stupid fuckers because Wyoming contract law is rather black and white. Dumb bastards are now liable as a group and as individuals for 3 times the gate potential.

Meh. Late 90s pop rock was a little less than exciting for me. That's ok, though. They are just proving themselves tools and really don't belong at Cheyenne.

They've got a few good songs, but I always thought they were some of the weaker bands in that genre...give me Counting Crows, Goo Goo Dolls, or even Gin Blossoms instead.


And I won't even get into Rob Thomas' solo record... :barf:
