Seattle's eight-piece "premier country mess" of a band, the Country Lips, are about to release their second full-length album, "Nothing to My Name" at a party at the Tractor Tavern on May 9th. They also just released this locally produced video, and IT IS GREAT:

The second bit of news you can use is this: "Willie Nelson's Old Tour Bus Is Being Sold on Craigslist." IT IS ALSO GREAT! I bet it still smells like Stetson cologne and weed.
