Band Challenge: Thieves Cover the Hit Song "Summertime is Great"

Brace yourself for another GET-YOUR-BAND-ON-THE-AIR....CHALLENGE!
We've invited artists and musicians around Austin to come on to our show and play for our entire audience. The only catch is: you must complete whatever challenge we present to you. Or leave.
Remember Butt Boy Pageant winner, Intern Nathan? Well, no wonder he was so good-looking. He's in a band. Thieves is a local pop-punk band that's been around since 2009. Nathan, Billy, Chris, and Tyler were issued the challenge yesterday morning, so they've only had 24 hours to prepare. Ready for the challenge?
In order for them to play one of their own songs, they had to cover our new favorite song, "Summertime is Great." And they have to do it well. Here's the original song.
And here's the Thieves version.
Thank you, Thieves. We love that song! We won't say that you did a better version...but you did a ...

*Soul Train is coming to Broadway!
*Remember that inappropriate tweet we talked about yesterday? Well, if you don't, here's the gist: US Airways actually tweeted out a pornographic picture from their Twitter account. And no one got in trouble! Really! We think that's great. Someone made an honest mistake and no one got in trouble for it. Good job, US Airways.

Help out during THAT TIME OF THE MONTH

We are going to start embracing That Time of the Month. No, not that time of the month. Our time.
Every month we want to give back to our community by using our resources and connections to help out others. In the first segment of That Time of the Month, we were able to get Sharon in touch with Wes Stearns from Airco Mechanical. Sharon is fighting cancer and spends a lot of money on medical expenses. Unforunately, Sshe has been without air conditioning for a while and summer is almost here. So Wes and the guys from Airco Mechanical are going to her house to install a new unit for her...and all for free.
We learned about Sharon because someone close to her emailed us and told her about how amazing and selfless that she is. They also informed us about her lack of air conditioning. So we were ...
