This Week's Top 25 from Park Ave CDs + POP ETC is playing an in-store there on Monday!


Before we get to this week's Top 25 chart from Park Ave (OMG, did Kreator really sell more than Edward Sharpe last week? HUZZAH!), please permit this public service announcement.

POP ETC (formerly known as the Morning Benders) is doing an in-store on Monday, Aug. 6 at 5:30. You should go. The new record doesn't sound all that much like the Morning Benders; for me, that's a bad thing, but you may disagree.
