The Arcade Fire are coming! Sort of… There’s a lot of info on their tour, but no Seattle date yet. Looks like there’s a few open dates between the Portland and San Francisco shows. Plenty of New York shows have been announced.

  • Peter Bjorn & John announce 2007 tour dates with a stop at Neumos on May 13.
  • The Flaming Lips announce a handful of tour dates this spring.
  • The View ran into trouble entering the country yesterday, putting their North American tour in jeopardy.
  • The White Stripes signed to Warner after V2 shut down last month.
  • Even if you’ve had enough of the Grammys, you can never have enough Steven Colbert.
  • A nice feature on the Fratellis with two MP3s, including an acoustic version of ‘Cigarello.’
  • Another nice feature. This one’s on David Vandervelde.
  • Here’s some info on how to download an extra track from the new Bloc Party record.
  • The reported August 6 release date for the new Radiohead record has been denied.
  • The new Dinosaur Jr is almost ready.
  • Some info on the forthcoming Iron & Wine record and some footage from a recent show at the Pabst Theater.
  • MC5punk or hippies? Either way, they’re awesome.
  • Thanks to Jesse from Astoria for sending us this a capella rendition of ‘Knife’ by Grizzly Bear.
  • Finally, there’s a really cool podcast over at Download this interview and podcast with Jon Regal, the writer, the producer, the frontman, the man who basically is Boy Eats Drum Machine.
