Sound Advice 

by Inlander Staff & r & PBR Street Gang -- Ever wondered what it takes to get your local band into the Pabst Blue Ribbon ad we run in The Inlander just about every week? Well, it's easy. All you have to do is sell your soul to Pabst, then send an e-mail to Inlander Advertising Account Executive Jocelyn Whitfield ([email protected]) with a few words about how your band is ready, willing and able to pimp PBR in local newsprint. All members in participating bands must be age 21 or older (something about the "legal drinking age"). Good luck, you lushes.

Who Is Mr. Cornpockets? -- That is the question, my fetishly inclined friends. We first became acquainted with Sir Cornpockets and his macabre sideshow over the Fourth of July weekend, when dozens of performers, dancers and people with really sick senses of humor stormed the B-Side stage in their cabaret-style show. We laughed, we gasped, we danced the night away. While the show may have been a one-time thing -- say it ain't so! -- the band that performed between acts at the cabaret will be back in town this Saturday. Foxxy Moron and the Sexxy Revolution will rock Mootsy's on July 30 at the stroke of 10 pm. Hearing the band, and getting a glimpse at "the Giant Widow of France" (hey, you know as much as we do) will cost you $6. And in traditional Cornpockets style, a Danse Carnivale -- a casual dress and costume event -- will kick off when the clock hits midnight. Hopefully that means getting down to '80s dance hits in silly costumes well into the wee hours, but we can't promise anything. What we do know is that this Cornpockets chap has a sick sense of humor. And we like it.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
