side music news....somewhat

So onto some good news


Monolith announced this years festival dates!
It is September 12th and 13th.
A two day festival at RED ROCKS!!!
The line up isn't out yet, but if it's anything like last years,
it will be AWESOME!


Onto the HILARIOUS [slash] total TOOL like news
Per NME
Killers: 'We want to knock Led Zeppelin and Nirvana off their pedestals


Say WHAT?!?!?!


Brandon douche mcgee was quoted saying
"We’ve been embraced in Britain in a way that I’ll never understand, and it’s such a wonderful thing," he declared. "But over here [in America], people are still so obsessed with Led Zeppelin and Nirvana, those sorts of bands, that nobody else is allowed [to grow]."

He added: "It’s not just us; there are a lot of great bands that have been held down or confined by the influence of these people that we’ve put up on pedestals. I’m tired of it, you know? I just want to knock them all off! And people don’t like that attitude. It’s almost like they don’t believe that it’s possible that anybody else can be the real deal."

Below is an excerpt from their single "Human"
"Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign in vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees giving men blowjobs lookiing for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers."


HOLY BOLOGNA!!!!
I didn't know you were THAT insightful brandon flowers!!!
I'm so sorry I mistook you for a douche no talent schmuck!!

Let me give you a tip, sir.
I, am a homosapien and I boogie the fuck down.
So THERE! I'm both.
Your OUTSTANDING life altering question has been answered.

God, you suck at life.

And I know I'm fueling the fire by even talking about it, but that's it.
No more mentions of that cocksucker on my blog.
He can DIAF before I mention that band again.

In even more hilarious news.....well not really news, but I watched the premiere of this random vh1 dating show with that girl that looks like one of the muppets......


anyhoot. I had a dream about one of the contestants.
No, it wasn't sexual, as the group of men vying for her love, are well below my standards, but I dreamt that this one, was actually the lead singer of blue [suck]tober. Hahahahah.

I think it was the constant showing of eyeliner.
GHEY!!!!


Speaking of VH1- I'd highly suggest watching the show, Free Radio.

Pure hilarity!!


Ok, happy thursday kiddos.

Nightlife Events

Now can you all calm the fuck down.

I've missed you, so

Ok, so I know everyone has their opinions regarding the ACL line up.
But let's face it.
Austin is still a majority of that liberal hippie-ish jam band place.
And that's what they push for, imo.

But just look at the bright side



Aww, hell yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also I'm excited for this fine man


As well as a small handful of others.

But you know what, if you don't like the line up, don't go to ACL.
I always say I won't, but i'm weak, especially for The B-52s.
This is something I've accepted and can live with.

Plus, hopefully some good people will bring some after parties of artists not playing ACL.


Plus, this is why you should go to Lollapalooza :)

And Capitol Hill Block Party partial line up- in Seattle was just announced.
After staying in Capitol Hill for a couple days I'm curious to see how they do this one.
And so far they have;
SONIC YOUTH, THE JESUS LIZARD, THE GOSSIP, DEERHUNTER, BLACK LIPS, EARTH, THE THERMALS, THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART, MOONDOGGIES, SPINNERETTE, THE DUTCHESS AND THE DUKE, MIKA MIKO, THE BLAKES, SLEEPY EYES OF DEATH, GIRLS, HEY MARSEILLES, THE MALDIVES, TRUCKASAURUS, AKIMBO, PAST LIVES, FUTURE OF THE LEFT, MICACHU, STARFUCKER, FAUX PUNK, NEW FACES, HOTELS, PICA BEATS, FLEXIONS, THEY LIVE!, AUDICITY, BOW+ARROW, SOL, JAPANDROIDS.

And this is an early day festival, so Matty, pace yourself ;P


Ok, let's go outside the festival world, mmkay.

Girl Talk is working on actual songs, per Billboard

Wait, huh?
No more mash ups and sampling??

Per Greg Gillis aka Girl Talk, "I'm interested in working on individual songs -- kind of in the style I've been doing, but with actual repetition as opposed to linear structure and stuff like that, some elements with a verse-and-chorus sort of structure as opposed to going through 50 minutes of change-ups the entire time. I want to evolve and keep refining."

Word. I'm curious and completely intrigued on the sound of the new album now.


Be expected a new album coming out from these two as well


I love me some Fiery Furnaces
I'm Going Away is set to be released on July 21st.
Must. Get.





Also new albums in the making will be coming from the following
Wilco (the Album) - June 30th



Yessir, that is Maxwell, and his fourth album, BLACKsummer'snight, is set for release July 7th

And this bitch got a record deal......doubleU tee eff


Off that horrid topic of the downspiral that music will soon take, IF THEY KEEP LETTING ACTORS CUT ALBUMS!!!! /scarlett johannsuck

RCRD LBL has White Denims new song- Mirrored and Reverse available for download.

LOVE THEM



And for those who use RapidShare....you best watch yo back.
Rapidshare allegedly gave Warner Brothers information on the user that uploaded Metallica’s latest album onto the filesharing service. Paragraph 101 of German copyright law allows content owners to seek a court order to force ISPs to identify users behind specific IP addresses.

Ok, so this was in Germany, so you germans, watch yo'self. kthx.



And for the "im on the fence about this one" news bit.




THIS GUY IS SET TO PLAY DROP DEAD FRED IN THE REMAKE.

Do you really think he can hold up to this greatness......



Hrmmmm. we shall see.
And for those of you who don't know about Drop Dead Fred,
GET WITH IT, SNOTFACE!!!!

<333333

This was seriously one of my favorite movies. EVER.


Sorry, i've been MIA because i've been tired.
But you totally survived, y/y?

Kentucky was full of derbys, chicken breast, pearls, and blue grass.
My family is awesome and the reason for the good times,
my dad is hilarious and the reason why I have the humor I have. <3333


See the resemblence?


Ok, enough of the DNA lesson.


Onward to May, because it's my birthday soon, and I'll be hitting up Sasquatch.

I'll leave it up to you

Happy EARTH Day!!
Do something that contributes to the wealth of the land today, like not picking up your dogs shit.
FREE FERTILIZER!!!!!

ps don't blame me if you get fined. :)
can't you get fined for that shit?? haha


I spent last night at home, pouting i wasn't getting my face melted off by MBV.
Also spent away from twitter, since everyone who was there were tweeting how loud and amazing it was.

Actually stopped at a friends crawfish broil for a bit then headed home to try to get organized for my trip.

But what ended up happening was me, drinking wine laying on the couch.
Dammit.
So I HAVE to get it done today.

But, I don't know if you heard but the lolla line up came out.
/hint-sarcasm

I can only imagine the eargasms right now.

check out my lolla line up /strut

It's going to be insanely awesome and you should join in on the shenanigans that will be taking place!!

Speaking of other festivals, David Byrne is curating a stage a Bonnaroo.
And his stage will feature dirty Projectors, Ani DiFranco, St Vincent, Katzenjammer, and Santigold.

The MAN knows talent.
Speaking of, since my selena post I've been indulging. Reaching back to her album that came out right after her death, there was this track called "God's child (Baila conmigo)" and it was one of my favorites.
So I take a listen, and oh em gee, I finally realize the male vocals on that track.
MOTHERFUCKING DAVID BYRNE!!!!

I knew greatness at the age of 11.

Ok, sorry, I doubt you care about that shit, but seriously, if you care about me, you'd care about SELENAS! haha.

Now that the insane Live music tuesday night is over, it leaves you with the following.

Wednesday:
Weight at Plush
Special guest, Clouds, from Finland April 22nd. Unofficial 3rd Bday Bash!


And Richard Gear will be at Lanai

ah geez

So ACL leaked an artist for this year's festival




Holy hell, Eddie looks amazing here.

Anyway, I was kinda, meh, about it, being that I just saw them a couple years ago.
BUT this time, they are coming off the anniversary of TEN- one of my favs and maaaaaybe this time, I'll be more sober, so I can actually remember their set.

Lollapalooza 07 ended in a drunken haaaaaze. srsly.


But i swear, C3 still needs to do better than this. and knowingly that this company 'knows' what they are doing, they wouldn't leak their festival headliner before the actual line up. You gotta build up that shit.

Like Lolla, for example.
Sonic Itch posted the following.....



And I know. After all the coachella fake posters, you can't trust anything.
BUT luckily the line up gets released tomorrow!!!!!
So excited.
ACL gets out on the 28th. Meh. We'll see.

I know, these two festivals could be seen as the same, since C3 does them both.
But uh, compare zilker in the summer heat...........then grant park- chicago skyline, with their summer heat.
NO COMPARISON!!!!
Lolla > ACL

Speaking of easy science, Stephen Hawking is in the hospital.
Getting better, but still there.  /random hyperlink of the day


OH, and of the zilker area, there's a public meeting tonight regardin the tree removal at Barton Springs.
So if you have an opinion, which I'm sure you all do. Go voice it and be active and shit.
Details at the link

And last random BUT music related link.
20 things you didn't know about Bob Dylan
[i knew about some of them, quit falsifying SHIT!!! I kid, by the way.]

There's a good amount of shows going on this week, and none that I will be at. /lame

I'll be in KY this weekend, riding horses or some southern shit for a wedding. Why oh why did I decide to go??? Oh yeah, family.

But you know where to go, in my absense, since it happens so frequently :D [you still love me]

ThePeenScene
Ultra8201
Do512


Also, Saturday, dont forget to hit this shit up.
Day time fun in the sun, lady!!! Ayyyy-ohhhhhhhh



Also, side note.
PICK UP A COPY OF THIS SHIT


These boys are throwing it down and doing it fucking spot on!!

Oh yeah, camping- Mermaid Cove. It was amazing and tons of good times.
Best quote of the weekend
"You are two quivers away from a fist in your vagina"
God, I love my friends. <333


Ok, get away from your computer and go enjoy this gorgeous day we are having.


I mean it.
