When it comes to fans tracking down their latest album, Big Head Todd & the Monsters aren't taking any chances. Instead of stocking record-store shelves with All the Love You Need, the blues-rockers are mailing a half-million copies of the disc to followers, all on the band's dime. The marketing ploy is designed to keep the 20-year-old quartet in business. "We're doing something a little unusual," says Todd Park Mohr, the band's lead singer. "I couldn't be more thrilled with the response. We've been filling out a lot of venues in places we haven't been to before." At their show tonight in Cleveland, the Monsters will unleash renditions of the album's tracks, including "Blue Sky," which Hillary Clinton has been playing as one of her theme songs on the campaign trail to the Oval Office. For the band, it was a no-brainer to give her the green light to use it. "All of us are definitely into Democrats taking the White House. We're all split between Hillary and Obama," says Park. "When she asked, we were excited." Big Head Todd & the Monsters perform at 8 tonight at the House of Blues, 308 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $17.50 to $27. Call 216-523-2583 or visit
