Undoubtedly, the biggest news this week was word that Jim Dalton had been asked to join Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, replacing his friend, departing guitarist Steve Larson. This was also the week that the Fray's new album hit stores, which made for a great photo opportunity for Locals Only host, Alf. We posted a lot of other stuff this week including a Q&A with Fucked Up's Damian Abraham, Sound Bites returned and we gave you the scoop on the lineup thus far for Heavenfest 2009. To catch up on things you might've missed this week or to refresh your memory, we've compiled a handy list of links for you after the jump. See you on Monday!
