Modest Mouse @ Central Park Summerstage 6/20

Let's hope tickets aren't a hosedown like Dinosaur Jr./Broken Social Scene. What happened to free concerts in the Park? I don't remember paying $50 to see the B-52's on the Great Lawn when I was twelve.

On sale noon saturday.

Update: $30


Broken Social Scene @ Central Park Summerstage

With Dinosaur Jr.. July 14th. No word on tickets but it should time nicely to give us all enough quality time with their new album.


Bloc Party @ Bowery

The boys took the Bowery stage on thursday night to prove that nice boys do play rock and roll, Axl Rose be damned. The set was short, sweet and cherrypicked their decades of songwriting. Even their slowjams had spunk. I've heard the crowd was more into it Friday, but apparently, this is not a competition.

My camera has been as asshole lately so these aren't so good.

New Arcade Fire Video

It's for Neighborhood #3(Power Out) and it looks to be about an ice storm coming to life and being generally impish. I love it. (Thanks Miss Russo)

We're Going To A Party...

From the Onion:

Nation Planning Surprise Party To Cheer Up Conor Oberst

OMAHA, NE—American citizens are coordinating efforts to lift the spirits of w√ľnderkind singer-songwriter Conor Oberst, sources reported Monday. "I saw Conor's picture in a Spin article about Bright Eyes, and he just looked so down," said Lindsey Keisner of Youngstown, OH, one of the party's 4,000 planners. "The country feels really bad that he's going through such a rough spell, so next Friday, everyone who can should meet in Omaha with balloons, funny cards, and silly little gag gifts." Britt Daniel from Spoon will lure Oberst to Omaha by asking him to overdub some vocals.


Rise in Blogployment

Brooklyn Vegan got a job writing for the Gothamist. I think his blog is the best thing to ever happen to what the media has dubbed the "blogiverse". But is that the bloggian's equivalent of signing to a major label? Raise your hand if you think yes.
