Here’s a quick round up of some calendar-fillers that have dropped into our mailbox recently…

Goo Goo Dolls – featuring singer/guitarist John Rzeznik and bassist/singer Robby Takac – have been on the road constantly since the release of their 11th studio album Boxes, which includes the hit “So Alive”, and was lauded by the likes of People, Huffington Post, Metro who called the album a “step forward in the band’s extensive repertoire” and Classic Rock who judged it an “expertly judged slice of plaintive pop music”. The bands’ most recent release is the You Should Be Happy EP which includes the tracks “Use Me” and the Alex Aldi mix of “Boxes”.
