The Format is going to be busy this summer: They have a 50-city headlining tour and their latest CD Dog Problems is going online for free! For free, the entire album, for two weeks starting today.

Here's the note we got:

The band is doing this because NOBODY has the answer to where music is headed, but trying something like this will help find the soloution (sic) faster. Why give it away for free? WHY NOT? If the band can grab 20,000 new sets of ears, they feel it's worth the loss in sales.

You can download Dog Problems for free at www.theformat.com. The Format are performing at the Meridian on Wednesday, July 18, 1503 Chartres, 713-225-1717. - Olivia Flores Alvarez
