sharks



If you're an old school video game fan or a Cadence Weapon fan (or even better, both), you'll probably share my excitement about his newest video for "Sharks." Rampage! Shit yes! And if you haven't already heard, Rollie got signed to Epitaph.

Keeping with the YouTube theme, if you were wondering what those puppets that Beck has on tour with him get up to on their night's off, you can wonder no more:



You might have also noticed that Viacom "forced" (or perhaps gently pushed) Google's hand, and they've deleted about a billion videos from the site. When writing an article for next month's Discorder, I was searching for the clip of Kanye's tirade at the MTV Europe Awards when Justice took video of the year over "Touch the Sky," and found that it's been pulled (though it's still on iFilm). How being able to watch that hurts MTV's bottom line is beyond me, but I thought I'd point out an irony that was revealed to me when I interviewed Xavier of Justice. When the ceremony was taking place, they were on a plane to Chicago for a gig. And when they landed and were shocked by the fury of text messages saying they'd won, they went to their hotel and watched the ceremony on, you guessed it, YouTube.

Thanks to Jason for finding out that Regina Spektor is still on and that you can buy pre-sale tix starting Tuesday from here.

Maybe you'll get a sweet deal, like this one that Rob got on his Lily Allen pre-sale tix.

During a visit to Zulu to blow far too much money on show tickets (and a used copy of Eric's Trip's Forever Again - huzzah!), I found out that the Frames show is at the Red Room... even though it's still listed as the Plaza all over the web.

The Game is doing two shows on March 1st. The guy that's probably creeping Dr. Dre out more and more everyday will do an early all-ager at the Croatian Cultural Centre and a 19+ show at Plush.

In gangsta rap related news, does anyone else find it weird that the people's champ Paul Wall is opening for Fall Out Boy at the Coliseum on May 6th? +44 and two other bands you probably don't care about round out the bill.

Is the Swishahouse/Fall Out Boy connection less weird now that the latter's been remixed by Kanye? (via buzznet)

Patrick Watson is in the Gallery on March 23rd.

And Finally, not only is Goldie still making music, but he's at the Plaza on March 13th.

Quinn, ive yet to see you make a show announcement for the Explosions In The Sky show @ CCC on May 5th (saturday) if you have already then my bad. If not, the ONLY place ive seen info is at Scratch Records where I picked up my ticket. Strange their myspace or official site doesnt say anything about it.
