Received word that Tyler "Danger" Jacobson is ending his eight-year residency at Lipgloss on August 28. Jacobson actually made the announcement this past weekend on his Danger Radio show on Indie 101.5, but with most of the state's music writers otherwise occupied, it took a day or two for word to get out. Jacobson is not quitting deejaying and Lipgloss will continue under the capable hands of his co-founder and partner-in-crime DJ boyhollow. Jacobson says he'll probably even play a Lipgloss guest set here and there, but his days as a weekly fixture are coming to an end. You can hear the announcement yourself on his website.
