Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett to Tour in 2015
Say you’re a country music fan? Then here’s an upcoming tour for you: Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett on the road in late January. The trek is currently set to hit only four East Coast cities, though, so it’s far from a full-fledged North American run. Here’s the kicker: In addition to Gill and Lovett sharing the bill, the guys will also share the stage and perform together each night. The tour, as its title “Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett: Songs and Stories” implies, will also feature some pretty animated anecdotes.

Hungry Cerwin Vega Woofer
Ever wondered what diet your subwoofer is on? Apparently they like soda cans. Cerwin Vega’s Facebook page recently linked to this video, showing six soda cans lined up in front of one of their HFA 18 subwoofers. Like some kind of robot from a science fiction movie, it looks like the HFA 18 devours the soda cans when it is turned on by sucking them all in to the air intake. Have a look for yourself!
