when the stars go blue

Ryan Adams has finally scheduled a return to the Commodore after being forced to cancel his March 22, 2004 show due to a broken wrist. Anyone who knows me knows that this is really exciting for me, as I'm a huge Ryan fan and he's never been to Vancouver since going solo (although he apparently did play the Starfish with Whiskeytown in '97). Ryan plays the Commodore with the Cardinals in tow on August 9th. No ticket info yet. High Road Touring has the full list of dates.

In related news, Caitlin Cary joined Ryan on stage in Raleigh on Wednesday for a couple of mini Whiskeytown reunions. Cary sang during the encore of Ryan's show, peforming on five Whiskeytown numbers. Afterwards, Skillet Gilmore joined both of them (along with Cardinals Jon Graboff and Catherine Popper) for a ten song set at another venue as "Whiskeytown." There are a few pictures of Ryan and Caitlin from the second show here.

Ryan's also been employing something coined "the song lotto." Fans are asked to put song requests in a box at the back of the venue, and near the end of the second set he draws one out of the box and plays it.

Said the Gramophone posts another Clap Your Hands Say Yeah mp3. This is quickly making its way into my favourite albums of the year.

Thom Yorke gave the NME one sentence on Radiohead's forthcoming full-length. Apparently that makes a story to some.

For those of you who like a little high art, the BBC is posting free mp3s of the BBC Philharmonic performing all nine of Beethoven's symphonies. The first five are up now.

This is completely unrelated to music (other than ol' MJ), but I just had to post it because it would be so ridiculous... were it not real, which makes it frightening. Although, I would be interested in seeing someone actually try and live by all the crazy rules in Leviticus... fortunately for that guy, any sort of "moral" coherence is completely absent among religious extremists.

DimeaDozen has torrents of the Boom Bip/the Fog show from last week and a pre-FM recording of last November's Le Tigre show.

now playing: Whiskeytown - Nervous Breakdown (Black Flag Cover)

Ryan Adams rescheduling his show is great news. What would make it even greater is if his original opening act also rescheduled, one Ms. Juliana Hatfield. Seriously, seeing her play "My Sister" and "Universal Heartbeat" would make me a good 12 years younger on the spot.
