Reuters Congressional correspondent/Dirty Bomb guitarist Andy Sullivan is ready to put his skills to the test against fellow journalists-turned-rockers.

As to what draws journalists to the stage? No one knew for sure. It could be escapism from a busy job or an extension of a semi-public career. For Sullivan, a father of two young kids, This is my one chance in the year to actually leave the house.

Or maybe its that bands are cool. Musing on the recently departed Davy Jones, Kelly remembered lines from Steppin Stone. 

How could any journalist not love that song, with its lyric, Now youre walking round like youre front-page news? Journopalooza is a chance to walk around like youre inside arts coverage in a specialty publication. Not bad, right?
