The Pretty Black Chains — Awakening

Paul Simon — Paul Simon / There Goes Rhymin’ Simon / Still Crazy After All These Years / In Concert: Live Rhymin’

Check these 'Hot' tips

Memorize these seven facts before ‘Hot as Hell,’ cool?

Before banging your head to the music of Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, Underoath and everybody else playing Sunday’s “Hot as Hell” festival in Tulsa, the organizers would like to share some information. We tore these tips straight from the press release:

1. “RE ENTRY WILL BE ALLOWED WITH TICKET AND WRISTBAND”

2. “MISTING TENTS WILL  BE AVAILABLE”

3. “CROWD WILL BE SPRAYED OFTEN WITH WATER FROM STAGE TO COOL DOWN”

4. “NO BLANKETS, ICE CHESTS, or UMBRELLAS”

5. “STAY HYDRATED”

6. “BRING SUNSCREEN”

7. “WEAR HATS”

Enjoy the show, readers! (Sucks about your umbrella, though, Ms. Poppins!) —Rod Lott
