Michelle Bachman Pirates Tom Petty - And Petty Is Pissed

From The Guardian UK:

"Tom Petty has told US presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to stop using one of his songs as part of her campaign, insisting he did not give the rightwing politician permission. Within 24 hours of the televised launch of Bachmann's 2012 campaign, Petty's lawyers reportedly pounced on the press-conference soundtrack, which used the song American Girl as exit music."

"Petty isn't pleased," reported NBC's Kelly O'Donnell, while Rolling Stone confirmed the singer's lawyers had sent the Minnesota congresswoman a cease and desist order. It's not even the first bump of Bachmann's campaign: during her announcement speech, the Tea Party supporter confused the birthplace of actor John Wayne with that of serial killer John Wayne Gacy."

"Petty's problem appears to be with Bachmann's politics. In 2008, the singer allowed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton to use American Girl for her unsuccessful presidential bid. But he was much less sympathetic in 2000, when Republican candidate George W Bush was discovered to be playing I Won't Back Down at his rallies. "This use has not been approved," Petty's representatives told the future president. "Any use made by you or your campaign creates, either intentionally or unintentionally, the impression that you and your campaign have been endorsed by Tom Petty, which is not true." Bush, er, backed down."

In VAIN In The Membrane



SETX's best dance club is back with an upgraded upscale South Beach / Vegas makeover at the launch of Vain this weekend on Crockett Street in beautiful downtown Beaumont.

Formerly known as the Black Cat Lounge, the new "high-end" "20th century antebellum" style club adds go-go dancers, VIP sections, bottle service, chilly floor freezes, state-of-the-art lighting, and a dress-to-impress dress code. [Guys, leave the shorts, wife-beas, ball caps and flippie-floppies at home - and pull up your damn pants].

Owners Danny Molina and Jeff McCarson [Dixie Dance Hall, Tequila Rok, The Gig, Whiskey River and others] are vets of the local club scene with previous gigs like Phaz II, Rocky Octanes, Palladium and the Black Cat Lounge under their belts. [Besides Black Cat, my personal fave was EMPIRE - anyone else remember that?]

I dug the layout and overall vibe of the original Black Cat Lounge [and Empire] so I'm looking forward to seeing what sounds again like a serious attempt at a quality club - and very curious as to what the DJ has in mind for 2012 ... more to come.
