Sound Curfew Outlined, Trailer Posted Online and More Soon?

The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station


Sound curfew outlined


Outdoor amplified music in downtown Springfield has until midnight, under a plan announced by Mayor Mike Houston Tuesday. If you don’t recall, let me refresh your memory. Last summer, just before Springfield’s 2-day SOHO Music Festival, Mayor Houston said he wanted music to be cut off at 9:30, then it was 10, then 11, then 11:30 … Problem is, there’s nothing on the books that says a specific time. Well, needless to say, that created waves throughout the community to the point where Houston rescinded the initial order. But, he did say at last night’s city council meeting that an ordinance would put on the books a midnight sound curfew for amplified music. That’s pretty much already when music gets cut off anyways. He also said that outdoor liquor licenses will be cut off at 11:30 so people can finish their drinks and safely move along to their next destination. The mayor effectively said that people could double fist some drinks at 11:30, if they so choose. We’re still trying to make sense of the whole deal.


Green Day

Trailer posted online


A three-minute trailer for Green Day’s iCuatro! documentary is available online. Showing the band on stage, in the studio and doing some leisure stuff like surfing and driving around nice cars, the trailer shows Billie Joe Armstrong saying that the documentary is the first thing in 20 years to give the public a look at the Green Day process. The band released the trailer through ESPN’s X-Games website in anticipation of this weekend’s screening and QnA session at the X-Games in Aspen, Colorado. Green Day kicks off a tour with two dates in Illinois: March 28th in Rosemont and March 29th in Moline.


More soon?


Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell is making it sound like there will be new material in the future. The singer recently said that there’s nothing stopping the band from making another album. King Animal was the first album from the Seattle natives in nearly 16 years. As for Audioslave, Cornell hasn’t mentioned a word of new stuff from that hybrid anytime soon.
