concert will air at the following times: Monday 11/1 at 4:00 PM EST,
Wednesday 11/3 at 11:00 AM EST, Saturday 11/6 at 3:00 AM EST and Sunday
11/7 at 7:00 PM EST.

At 7:00 PM EST, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with legendary rock band
the Doobie Brothers. One of the most popular pop/rock bands from the
1970s, the Doobie Brothers’ soul-inflected pop sound led to a string of
gold and platinum albums throughout the US, along with numerous radio
hits including "Listen to the Music," "Black Water" and "China Grove."

At 8:00 PM EST, TWEC.COM will host a live chat with funnyman Jackie
"The Jokeman" Martling, straight from the Howard Stern Show. The
stand-up comedian and writer for the Howard Stern show will be stopping
by to chat about his new CD, Come Again?

Following the chat with Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling, TWEC.COM will
host an exclusive chat with music monsters Rage Against the Machine at
9:00 PM EST! The band’s blend of metal and hip-hop supports
politically confrontational lyrics delivered in rap style, creating a
unique sound that blows away all who cross its path. The members of
Rage Against the Machine do not hesitate to expound their views on
issues affecting society, offering their listeners a political
commentary serving as more than simple entertainment. Legendary
musician Henry Rollins called Rage Against the Machine "the most
happening band in the US." Rage Against the Machine’s new album,
Battle of Los Angeles, hits stores on Tuesday to an eagerly-awaiting
audience. TWEC.COM will be offering free shipping to everyone who
orders the album during the chat. As an added bonus, TWEC.COM will be
featuring a special radio broadcast during the chat in conjunction with
Radio Woodstock, with the entire broadcast consisting solely of Rage
Against the Machine music. Also, The Web’s Entertainment Center will
give away a guitar autographed by the members of Rage Against the
Machine during the chat, and the band will choose the winner!

At 9:00 PM EST on Monday, TWEC.COM and Atlantic Records will be airing
a live video fancast with punk/rock artist Big Naked! Bif’s hardcore
punk music has been described as "a high-octane blend of power chords,
chugging rhythms, huge hooks, and brutally honest, soul-bearing
lyrics." After performing throughout her life in many different bands,
Bif finally embarked on a solo career in 1994.

To wrap up the night, TWEC.COM is holding a live chat with the Long
Beach Dub Allstars at 10:30 PM EST! After the tragic 1996 death of
Sublime lead singer Brad Nowell, surviving members Eric Wilson and Bud
Gaugh formed a new band, the Long Beach Dub Allstars. Combining
reggae, hip-hop, soul and punk, the band’s sound is multi-layered and
has been called "a logical extension of Sublime, presenting audiences
with all of the musical elements of a Sublime record without the
limitations."

TUESDAY, 11/2

At 6:00 PM EST, TWEC.COM will host a live chat with flamboyant musician
Boy George. The British pop star has been making waves worldwide since
his days as the lead singer of Culture Club. The latest album from Boy
George and Culture Club hits stores on November 23!

At 7:00 PM EST, TWEC.COM will host a live chat with former Skid Row
lead singer Sebastian Bach. Sebastian is back with his debut solo
album, Bring’em Bach Alive, which hits stores on Tuesday. The album
features songs made famous by Skid Row, as well as five original songs
from Sebastian.

Following the chat with Sebastian Bach, TWEC.COM will present a live
chat with rockers Guster. Called "one of the most successful bands to
hit the U.S. East Coast scene in the late 1990s," Guster has had a
solid following since their 1994 debut Parachute. Their catchy lyrics
and unique overall sound have solidified them on the path to success
and earned them a reputation as "one of the most reputable unpromoted
bands of the decade."

Concluding the night’s events is a live chat with alternative rock band
Counting Crows. The band’s new album, This Desert Life, hits stores on
Tuesday. Counting Crows have been compared to legendary bands and
singer-songwriters ranging from Van Morrison to The Band. Their
combination of tortured lyrics and the rock music of old has led to an
appeal spanning across generations and music genres.

THURSDAY, 11/4/99

The culmination of this week’s lineup of online events at TWEC.COM is
our weekly SOHH.COM (Support Online Hip-Hop) Back to the Future live
chat series. This week, The Web’s Entertainment Center will host a
live chat with Del the Funky Homosapien. The SOHH Back to the Future
series happens every Thursday night at 10:00 PM EDT.
