Actually, I think that's what the Blake Lewis tour is called - 'Dorkfest 2000'.

It's not Audio Day Dream. It's Audio Dork Dork.

Beatboxing, hair gel, and lots of cd's sold.

@ #1: HUGE thanks for copying and pasting something you imply is dorky for everyone else to see. Wow, that was really great of you and a real nice contribution to Line Out.

Eric, have you not noticed most things posted on LineOut are copied and pasted from other sites like Pitchfork, YouTube, Idolator, and, uh, Pitchfork?

This post isn't copied from anywhere. This is from the guys in Blake's band. It's Blake Lewis central here at Lineout.

Kent is The Man. Sawka & Jeremy Lightfoot - Blake's band has a great rhythm section.

Please stop the Blake BJs. His latest single is an obnoxious mixture of shitty influences and cookie cutter production. More importantly though, the guy looks like a douchy youth pastor.

I feel sorry for all the parents who'll have to listen to this crap blasting in their kids bedrooms for the next couple of months.

I'm really confused why there are so many posts regarding this guy. There are no better musicians in town that deserve the exposure?

The Mob Law - really good at their instruments but always make HORRIBLE musical choices. The Mob Law's popularity obviously shows there's still a huge demand for bands that sound like Sublime and also incorporate shitty rap into their songs (they sound like Slightly Stupid, but stupider). The Mob Law are not tough kids from the street with connections to organized crime like their name/homepage implies, they are privileged kids from Issaquah High School. Props to Mob Law though for offering something different from what else is out there (although their music sucks) and for getting people to come out to shows who wouldnt normally see live music(although most of their fans are bro'd-out collar-poppers).

First of all, Doxology & The Mob Law are two irrelevant huckleberry 'n' cheese infested bands of horses, er, i mean, bands of TOOLS.

Secondly, if Blake Lewis was a great singer, the fact that THE DUDE CAN'T DANCE might not matter. Unfortunately, he ain't much of a singer, and his two left feet are eventually gonna make America cringe. Even the teenyboppers will wanna turn away. Hopefully his decent backup band'll be able to cash in before they get shipped out by the powers that be. In the meantime, download a decent mp3 rip of the new record for free - and check out the computerized con-job that is Blake Lewis' voice:

Too bad American Idol,Inc. can't digitally alter the cloying whiteness of his dorky dance moves.

After he makes a few more spastic talk show appearances they'll probably wish the technology was available!

*LOL*
