The Hold Steady played their first show in 2003 - they are entering their second decade as a band. As one of America's most acclaimed rock bands, The Hold Steady has been cited as influential by numerous rock acts such as Japandroids, Titus Andronicus, Frank Turner and many others. THS has toured heavily, and has played at least one show in all 50 states.

Their first release in four years, "Teeth Dreams" is the sixth THS album. The songs on "Teeth Dreams" came together over the past three years. Guitarist Steve Selvidge joined The Hold Steady for the "Heaven is Whenever" tour. "Teeth Dreams" is the first THS release where Selvidge participated in the writing and recording. A number of the songs were written at sessions in Memphis, where Steve lives. This five-piece line up (two guitars, bass, drums, vocals) of the band showcases a bigger and tougher sound. The guitars are especially present on this release. The title "Teeth Dreams" refers to a common nighttime dream. Dreams about teeth are usually triggered by anxiety. Anxiety is a theme that shows up in a number of songs on the album.

Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. Tyson's professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way.

In 2001, Tyson was appointed by President Bush to serve on a 12-member commission that studied the Future of the US Aerospace Industry. In 2004, Tyson was once again appointed by President Bush to serve on a 9-member commission on the Implementation of the United States Space Exploration Policy. This group navigated a path by which the new space vision can become a successful part of the American agenda. And in 2006, the head of NASA appointed Tyson to serve on its prestigious Advisory Council, which will help guide NASA through its perennial need to fit its ambitious vision into its restricted budget.

Dr. Tyson has written ten books, dozens of professional publications, and monthly essays for Natural History magazine. He has also served as the on-camera host of PBS-NOVA's 4-part mini-series Origins and five seasons of NOVA ScienceNOW. The PBS/NOVA documentary "The Pluto Files", based on the book, premiered in March 2010. Currently, Tyson is working on a 21st century reboot of Carl Sagan's landmark television series COSMOS, currently airing on FOX.

Tyson is the recipient of eighteen honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest award given by NASA to a non-government citizen. His contributions to the public appreciation of the cosmos have been recognized by the International Astronomical Union in their official naming of asteroid 13123 Tyson. On the lighter side, Tyson was voted Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive by People Magazine in 2000.

Adam Carolla is one of the most versatile men in Hollywood. After cutbacks forced Adam to quit his syndicated self titled "Adam Carolla Show" broadcast on CBS radio, Adam started "The Adam Carolla Podcast" with only a computer and a microphone from his home office in 2009. A year later, the podcast was been named iTunes #1 Podcast Of 2009, receives more than five million downloads a month, and prompted Adam to launch an entire online network, ACE Broadcasting in 2010, which produces many of iTunes top podcasts. Most recently, Carolla wrapped production on a new NBC pilot with Executive Producer Daniel Kellison, and Jimmy Kimmel. Currently, Adam is writing a novel of his famous rants for Crown Publishing which will hit shelves this fall.

Carolla wrote, co-produced and starred in the independent boxing feature film The Hammer. The Hammer made its world premiere at the 2007 Tribecca Film Festival in New York. Earlier this year, Carolla was seen as a contestant on ABC's hit reality series "Dancing with the Stars." Additionally, Carolla has hosted Comedy Central's "Too Late with Adam Carolla" and starred in TLC's "The Adam Carolla Project," which chronicled the renovation and subsequent sale of his boyhood home.
