Look, no one like scalpers. And scalpers who sell fake tickets are the worst kind of scum. But to torture a guy for selling fake tickets?
Three men from Tennessee--including a county commissioner--were arrested and charged for burning a man with cigarettes and choking him with a dog collar for selling them fake tickets to a Justin Bieber concert.
And it gets better. These three guys--including a dude named Bubba, of course--paid $20,000 for the tickets which they then planned to scalp themselves.

Britons have a long history of betting on which song will end up at #1 on the singles chart on the last chart before Christmas. This has resulted in weird campaigns (cf. "Killing in the Name" by Rage Against the Machine) and naked attempts with novelty songs.

Observers of music get all jittery when they have a hard time putting a universal genre label on what they are hearing. Philadelphia-based experimental rock outfit Man Man would be a nightmare for genre-loving listeners, and it’s probably better left that way.
With the pounding Rhodes playing of frontman Honus Honus (Ryan Kattner), combined with his growls, howls and feminine screams that remind of old Frank Zappa records, as well as the surrealist lyrics, Man Man is arguably one of the most important bands out there that too few know about.
I got the chance to catch the band at Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill, NC, but had no idea what to expect before the show went underway. The stage was inundated with bizarre dolls, toys, stacks of cymbals, and Pow Pow’s (Christopher Powell) flamboyantly colored drum set. Black lights cover the stage, transporting the crowd to a bizarre, temporary fantasy world.
