More indication that Motion City Soundtrack might be at Bamboozle...
If you look at the "Gab" section of the Bamboozle's website, you'll see this:

"Today is Monday, April 30th, that means we only have five days to figure out all the fakers who remain at large. If Thursday is supposedly Bearfort, than who is The Death Of...and The Great American Freedom Machine. Everything is going to be alright from what I hear, loose lips won't sink my ship....You all have no idea how much fun awaits you in East Rutherford."


Interesting word choice huh?

Setlist for Give It A Name London
James sent in the setlist for yesterday's show at Give It A Name in London:

Attractive Today
Everything Is Alright
Make Out Kids
Time Turned Fragile
This Is For Real
My Favorite Accident
L.G. FUAD
The Future Freaks Me Out


Also, if you haven't noticed by now, MCS has signed their latest news bulletin on their site with "xoxo - TGAFM", which has lead many people to speculate that they could be playing the Bamboozle festival next weekend under the name The Great American Freedom Machine (anyone have other ideas of what it could stand for?!?). MCS played surprise sets at Skate and Surf festival day 3 in 2004 and Bamboozle day 2 in 2005 so it could happen. Who knows, I guess we'll see! And by the way, they also said to stay tuned for "some big announcements" next week.... hopefully that means tour dates... or something bigger!

Gym Class Heroes not playing at Loyola
As Derick mentioned in the comments a few posts down, Gym Class Heroes are no longer on the bill for the concert at Loyola on this coming Tuesday, April 17. No worries though, Motion City Soundtrack is still confirmed to be playing. Just thought I would pass that along.

If anyone is going to the show at Bradley University today send in the setlist, pictures, or concert reviews. And have fun!

Tickets for Loyola show now on sale
A few people have been asking about tickets for the Loyola University show with Gym Class Heroes on April 17th at the Gentile Center. Student and general public tickets are now on sale at the Loyola Campus Life Union Board (CLUB) website. You can also get tickets in person at the Centennial Forum Student Union (CFSU) information desk in Mertz Hall.

Tickets for the Bradley University show on April 15th with the Starting Line went on sale last week at Ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster outlets. Students can get tickets in person at the Robertson Memorial Field House.

And in other news, I think Motion City Soundtrack won the AOL Sessions Under Cover poll, since they are no longer on the list and the votes were re-started. So good job voting everyone!
