Idols Playing Around Town

Chris Daughtry and his band DAUGHTRY will perform a 25-30 min. set tonight at the Viper room in Los Angeles.  The show starts at 8 pm PDT.  I’ll be starting a thread later tonight for commentary and recaps….

From the Charlotte Observer: Tonight,  Bucky Covington and his band, Home Cooking, perform at Hugo’s in Rockingham, NC. The band includes some friends and his twin brother Rocky Covington.  The show starts at around 10:45 p.m.  Kellie Pickler is slated to sing the National Anthem prior to tomorrow night’s NASCAR Nextel Cup race at Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC.  The race is scheduled to start at 7:15 p.m.

And for you folks in the Idaho (whoops, I almost spelled that backwards. heh) Utah area, Jon Peter Lewis is playing with his band at Club Strata in Rexburg, Idaho tonight at 8:00 p.m. and tomorrow night at Velour in Provo, Utah. Doors open at 8:00 p.m for the Velour show.  He’ll be back in Los Angeles next week to play a gig at the Viper Room on Wednesday, October 18.  The show starts at 9:30 p.m.  More information can be found at JPL’s My SpaceSidenote:  According to this BYU News Net, “The details are still in the works, but Lewis said MTV will have a weekly review show of American Idol. He will be one of the panelists on the show, reviewing the new season’s contestants.” 

Idol Record Releases

Ace Young sent a My Space bulletin announcing that his new single “Scattered” is being released to radio this coming week.  According to Ace, the song is already in rotation in Boston and Cleveland.  “Scattered” will be available on ITunes by Monday.

Two Idol albums drop this Tuesday–Ruben Studdard’s The Return and Ayla Brown’s Forward.

A little tidbit about Ayla Brown from reader Lynnie: “Just heard Ayla Brown’s dad on WRKO- He brought a couple of copies of Ayla’s new cd for Howie Carr’s kids.  Howie asked him how she’s doing, and he said the cd is selling well. He said that Walmart just ordered 10, 000 copies, and that the cd sells for around $11.99.  He also said that Ayla makes about 1/3 of the price on the CD.”
