A lot of news today, but first here’s a really nice version of The Transmissionary Six covering ‘Dream Weaver’ with Paul Hiraga of Downpilot:
The new Wilco record is called Sky Blue Sky and it will be released on May 15. Check out the tracklist and a handful of tour dates.
Pixies will play four Australian festivals this spring, Hot Chip announce U.S. tour dates, and the Arcade Fire will play Saturday Night Live on Feb 24, with Dwight from “The Office” as host!
Clipse, 50 Cent, Mos Def and Chuck D are featured on an awesome looking PBS documentary.
The opening night at Noise Pop looks awesome.
Lily Allen talks music politics after being snubbed at the BRIT awards this year.
Last night, NYU students rallied to demonstrate against the Brooklyn indie-folk band Ching Chong Song for being racist. The band was opening for Jeffrey Lewis.
Here’s a new video from OK Go, courtesy of Stereogum.
Interesting study claiming the record industry actually loses a VERY small percentage of sales to peer to peer file sharing.
Live from Chuck Norris’ House is coming! Thee Emergency will rock the Sunset this Saturday with A Gun That Shoots Knives, The Hands, and Iceage Cobra.
The Heavy Hearts are doing an in-store performance at Easy Street (West Seattle), this Friday (Feb 16) at 8pm. It’s all ages, it’s free and they’ll rock your face. Hard!
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, but here’s a funny piece on the ugliest musicians ever. Ouch.
