Big Red + Keith = Awesome Heroin Party!

Get ready for the sickest “Loving Cup” of all time: The Daily Progess reports today that the Bad Lieutenant will be opening up for the Rolling Stones at the October 6th show at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Va.

According to the report, “And the opening act for the Rolling Stones’ Scott Stadium show is…Trey Anastasio, formerly of Phish.

In addition to naming the opening act, concert promoters on Wednesday also made available an undisclosed number of ‘limited view’ tickets for the sold-out Oct. 6 show. The tickets, priced at $60 and $95, became available at 5 p.m.

The upcoming show is the first major concert at Scott Stadium since the Dave Matthews Band played there in April 2001, and fans quickly snapped up tickets when they went on sale last month. Tickets soon popped up on eBay as well, commanding a premium well above their face values of $160, $95 and $60.” [More]

Considering Trey is the best cover band on the scene, my money is on “Miss You” for the 70 Volt Parade rotation. So now he's a cover band and an opening act...yeah, those sounds like decent jobs following the break-up of the greatest rock band of all time.

Trey's best friend, Dave Matthews, is also in the news, but in a sports story. I'm not sure if this happened at Bonnaroo or not, but somebody definitely dosed the Florida State quarterback at a DMB concert. "Suspended Florida State quarterback Wyatt Sexton was taken to a hospital by police who say they observed him behaving strangely, lying in the street and telling them he was God." Watch out, Wyatt, there's acid in the beer in the red cups. Please don't give him any more acid.

Slack Song of the Day: Hasidic reggae superstar Matisyahu, who played with Trey down at Bonnaroo if you'll recall, with Heights from April 17, 2005 at Irving Plaza.

Didn't they do that "How Do You Talk To An Angel?" song? I think Ray from 90210 was their lead singer, right?
