"480 Minues" - New We Are Augustines (Contender For Album Of The Year)

Do you like movies?  Do you like popcorn and soda?  Do you like Jay Reatard?  Well, we have tickets to give away to the West Coast Bay Area premiere of the Jay Reatard documentary, Better Than Something, at The Roxie Theater next Wednesday, August 17th.  When you hear a Jay song during today's show, get in touch via e-mail or IM (contact info below) and you might just win yourself a pair of tickets to the premiere!

Speaking of today's show, as usual the 480 Minutes live hosted radio program (Friday, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time) is all-new, hosted live, in-person, in real-time.  Please tune in (it's free!) 24/7/365 by clicking that shiny giant silver Play button on the right.  Or click here.
