Want your music heard round the world, and maybe even score a spot on a compilation disc? Of course you do. Well, it just so happens that iSOUND.com is looking for bands to post MP3s to its Web site. Free accounts include a band profile page and up to three MP3s. Or, pay a monthly fee to hold a ridiculous amount of your tunes. According to D.J. Burdick, iSOUND CEO, any genre is welcome as long as the music is original, or has permission to be covered. Eventually, says Burdick, all free and paid accounts will be entered in a type of online battle of the bands. Site visitors will vote for their favorites, until only a mighty eight bands survive. The prize? That spot on iSOUND's upcoming compilation.

So, when Reverb was a kid, how come middle school wasn't like it is today? I mean, we had "Square One," with "Mathnet" and all, but that's nothing compared to live, professional song-and-dance performances or principals strapped into hoverchairs. Honeywell and NASA (freakin' NASA?) have teamed up for the FMA Live! tour, which hits Fox Meadow Middle School (1450 Cheyenne Meadows Road) on Wednesday, March 8. The lucky ducks there will be treated to stunt demos, including the launch of a hapless student onto a 10-foot Velcro wall, and get this rappers and singers. The performers supposedly will break it down, G-style, about Newton's laws of physics, with tasty lyrics like, "Now the word for this condition won't hurt ya / Keeps you moving forward / It's called inertia." And yes, I can make fun of it all I want. But I'm still kinda jealous.
