The Coors Light “Search for the Coldest” continues, and we’re keeping you up to date on live music events in different regions of the country, as well as upcoming album releases worth checking out.
This week’s round-up includes information on the next live events in the Coors Light “Search for the Coldest” MC competition. Remember, you can vote for who you think is the coldest MC at www.searchforthecoldest.com.
Other than that, it looks like the Midwest is the place to be this week for rock, rap and dance music, with all of the above covered at cool festivals in Milwaukee and Chicago; if it’s death metal you’re after, then just keep heading west.
