2. While the members of Alameda alt-pop ensemble Finish Ticket are off at college, Live 105 has been playing their single "We'll Be Okay" in regular circulation (including on a SoundCheck with Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig as a guest), and their album is now sitting happily in the station's archives.
3. As you all know by now, The SHE's will be opening for Girls at the Fillmore.
