We end today's digest on a sad note. The legendary Cat Club in Hollywood has been sold and apparently will no longer feature live music. For the past 10 years antiMusic has sponsored the shows that Happenin Harry has put on at the club each week which featured far too many notable artists to name. You never knew who would show up each Sunday night to sit in with the Haptones all-star jam. So a chapter has ended. We'll let you know when Harry announces where he's taking the shows to next. In other news, Harry is set to appear on KNAC.com today to discuss Bud Genius. Grab details about the appearance, find out what Bud Genius is and more here and more about the Cat Club closure here.
