May 7 [14:00 EST] -- The Verve Pipe, they of the Top 20 hit "The Freshmen," [2MB QuickTime] will be chatting it up at MTV Online on America Online Wednesday night.
The group will stray from the cozy confines of its native East Lansing, Michigan to address questions and queries from fans from 8 to 9 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday.
Users can ask them about working with producer (and Talking Head) Jerry Harrison, what it took land a video in MTV's Buzz Bin, or its opening slot on Kiss' European tour... or you could just ask them about the weather.
America Online members can access the event by using the AOL keyword "mtvarena." After the chat, the Verve Pipe will get back to genuine face-to-face contact with its fans with a show at New York City's Irving Plaza. Here's where else they'll be:
