By Staff on August 24, 2013
Sometimes you just can't bring yourself to read every single thing that goes up on the internet. Who has time to go through all of those cat gifs and youtube comments besides us? Don't worry, we get it, and we want to help!
Here for your weekend round-up reading pleasure are the top stories that FILTER had to offer this past week in a delicious bite-size format. Dig in!
1. TOUR WATCH: MONA’s Fall Tour Announcement Video: Torches & Pitchforks has been out for about a month now (via Mercury Records) and it's packed with classic rock 'n' roll riffs roughly blended with the raw energy of garage rock. It makes perfect sense that they would use classic WWE footage to announce what is sure to be a fierce tour.
2. FYF FEST SATURDAY: Four Acts You Must Watch Including Mikal Cronin, Yeah Yeah Yeahs & More: We've been excited about FYF Fest even before the line-up was announced.

The event will take place this Saturday, August 24 from 12-5pm and will feature performances by Bleached and Dum Dum Girls!
5. RECAP: Mayer Hawthorne Plays Intimate Haggar Show At The Mandalay Bay Las Vegas: The rooftop lounge at the Mandalay Bay Las Vegas was the place to be last night. Mayer Hawthorne belted out some of his seductive songs while showcasing his signature style to a packed crowd. The private party was held in the House of Blues Foundation Room in celebration of Haggar Clothing Co.
