awesomer

Blood On The Wall play the Media Club with the Psychic Ills on May 5th. If I'm not mistaken the latter were supposed to be on the bill of the on again/off again/definitely off Ariel Pink non-show.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs tix are on sale this Saturday at 10am, which is an ongodly hour when I am attending a friend's alcohol soaked birthday celebration on Friday night. But I'm sure you care not about the damage I'm doing to my liver. Seeing the New Yorkers will put you back $32.50 plus charges. It's reserved in the orchaestra section (GA everywhere else), so if you want to be close enough to Karen O so that she can spit beer into your mouth in a really fancy place, jump on those tix bright and early.

The Stills are at Richard's on April 26th, and according to the email that addVice sent me you can download the opening track of their newie, Without Feathers, at their MySpace. They said they could get me and an "attractive friend" into the show if I posted this. Luckily I was going to post it anyways. If they don't look down upon my sarcasm, why don't I see if I can wrangle two tickets for somebody out there instead? No promises, but there'll be an update if things work out. You reading this Daniel? Hook somebody up.

Spank Rock are at the Plaza on June 7th. I'm going to go ahead and say they're probably opening for somebody, so look for further details to be confirmed, whenever they're confirmed.

You Say Party! We Say Die!, who are getting ink all over the place, are playing the Lamplighter on April 15th with Cadeaux.

Pearl Jam have a brand spankin' new website to go along with their forthcoming brand spankin' new album. On March 7th, they'll announce their tour in support of the self-titled effort, and on March 8th, they'll give away (like, for free) a download of the album's first single, World Wide Suicide, via their website, for two days.

The Cowboy Junkies are at Richmond's River Rock Casino on May 18th. That may sound all washed up and lame, but that doesn't make The Trinity Session any less awesome.

Finally, Between Thought and Expression points us to a whole bunch of Neutral Milk Hotel rarities, demos, live stuff.

now playing: the Stills - In The Beginning
