summer's gonna hurt you

Diplo is playing Celebrities on August 4th. If that's not enough for you (and if you've ever seen him spin, it is), then how's about if he brings along recent SubPop signees, Casei de Ser Sexy, and his own Mad Decent signees, Bonde Do Role. This is going to be even more of a party than that MSTRKRFT/Tiga affair. (via Brooklyn Vegan)

Speaking of MSTRKRFT, they'll be djing after their April 29th show at the Colmbia (with My!Gay!Husband! and co. at the Kids).

Architecture In Helsinki is now playing the Plaza, not Richard's.

If you're a Dresden Dolls fan, you may want to check this forum thread out. The gist of it? The Dolls were a little wary of opening for Panic At the Disco, so they decided they're going to do their own after show (in every city), where they screen some indie films and play some songs at some lil' art house. Paging Video-In or 156 W. Hastings... hook Amanda and Brian up with a venue. (thanks to Simon for the headsup.

While I'm a gigantic Constantines fan, I'm going to humbly suggest that you may want to hold off on planning to check them out. The rumour mill is amiss with rumblings of a very special little gig with a very special little band (one of their songs is a favourite around these parts), in a very special place. It's all still in the very uncomfirmed stages, but I will keep you posted.

Less than a week to get yourself into the Stellastarr* show.

now playing: Spiritualized - On Fire

that diplo thing will definitely be a bigger party than MSTRKRFT who are kinda only middling DJs while Diplo can fucking spin his ass off. perhaps literally!

I found out that We are Scientists are sharing the bill with the Arctic Monkeys. Lucky with Sasquatch scheduling.
