In this post-9/11, knee-jerk world, it's probably best not to leave props that look like bombs laying around unoccupied floors of your building. Apparently, that's what one agency in Atlanta's Proscenium building at Peachtree and 14th did which, yesterday, caused the building to be briefly evacuated while a bomb squad was called to check it out. The package had in it eight red cylindrical objects, with the word "dynamite" on their sides, attached to a device that looked like a timer.
For all the head bangers out there, hard rock magazine Revolver is running a promotion alongside the Unholy Alliance Tour which is headlined by Slayer and includes Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon and Thine Eyes Bleed. Not exactly the sort of music the local church would be interested in but, then again, there's only so much organ music one can take. The magazine has created a Guide to the tour and anyone spotted at the concerts with the Guide and wearing a Lamb of God T-shirt will get the chance to go backstage, meet the band and listen to the band's new album, Sacrament.
