Things on Thursday

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are playing The Greek Theater in Los Angeles tonight. I'll be there battling the atrociousness of the Greek's stack parking policy. For those of you who don't know what that is, it means I can't go home until the kid with MUSE stickers all over his car, leaves the venue and moves their car in front of me.

Here's an older track from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, to convey the feeling of tonight's circus atmosphere.

The DVR will be in overdrive tonight, as new episodes of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", "Parks & Recreations", "The Office", and that new show with Joel McHale and Chevy Chase are taking the airwaves.

Here's a track from the forthcoming Morrissey album, titled "Swords". It's a collection of B-Sides from the last few albums. Check out a live cover of a David Bowie song below. You can pre-order the album at Amazon HERE.

I was dressed for succ...

Pavement will be reuniting for what looks like one show only, so far, in New York's Central Park, next Summer. Details are available at Pitchfork. The Pixies are also touring in support of playing "Doolittle" in its entirety. They're playing two nights at the Hollywood Palladium in LA, in November. You can get tickets with an astronomical surcharge HERE. We would love it if The Stone Roses or Ride would be gracious to oblige to a reunion tour also.

(The future Mr. Deschanel)

In other news, I continue to be ashamed to like Death Cab For Cutie at my age. They just recorded a song for that Vampire movie with that chick from "Panic Room", who touches her hair and cowers with her shoulders slumped a know, "shoegazing". You can check out the song HERE. I kinda liked Ben Gibbard when he was heftier, and before he was engaged to the "She" portion of She & Him, is that what they're called? His and Hers?

Monsters of Folk

Everyone be nice to Taylor Swift...apparently she's as fragile as her frame. Other than that, yesterday's VMA's included the outing of how lame MUSE is, and how dorky their fans are. And Lady Goo Goo was hermetically sealed in several outfits.

In real music news, check out The Monsters of Folk. This project includes a monster of coke(pure speculation after many years)Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and Jim James from My Morning Jacket. Their self titled album will be released on Rough Trade, on September 22nd. You can pre-order the album HERE. Give a listen to "Baby Boomer" below.
