But Wait, There's More: JAMC, National, YLT, Beady Eye, Suede, Godspeed, Sebadoh, Smiths, Radiohead, and TONS more

So I've been pretty much absent for the last couple of months as the holidays and work has kept me pretty busy.  But my google reader kept piling up and I've finally managed to plow through everything and bring you the best stuff.  Some of this is old stuff so if you're a blog addict then this will all be pretty boring and you'll probably say, "*sigh*, old news!"  For everyone else:  This is what's going on!

First Videos of the Godspeed Reunion Are Now Online!

Godspeed You! Black Emperor made their return this past weekend by curating the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in England.  Someone named, "Polar1One", videotaped the show and they've now been uploaded to youtube.  I can't wait to see them live!  Here are the videos:

  

Post-Thanksgiving: Primal Scream, The National, Z-Trip, Atlas Sound Arcade Fire covers Smiths, and more

Lots of good stuff from the holiday weekend.  Mainly the videos from the Primal Scream Screamadelica shows.  Seeing them doing Loaded was pretty fuckin' awesome and it's something that I've never seen.  The chances of a show like that coming to the US is pretty rare but damn.  They should get together with Suede and knock it out.

Twitter is Back!

Several months ago twitter changed the way that you can post to their site.  Many sites had to scramble and update.  Since twitter is unfortunately an afterthought for me, it took me a while to get around updating the site.  I know our 23 followers were crushed but they can now rejoice as the service should be up and running again!  hiazzah!

I'm going to enable cell phone updates so I can post more random stuff that I see, especially when I go to shows.  Not being a music writer means that I can pretty much sum up all my thoughts about a gig in 140 characters or less.

Friday Roundup: BRMC, Daft Punk, Jane's Addiction, The Cure, F**K Kings of Leon, Virtual Pop Stars, Steve Jobs and more!

Here's another recap of some of my favorite stories from the week and some oldies which should just be shared.  My favorite is the Groove Armada slamming Kings of Leon, William Shatner covering Cee-Lo, oh so much fun.  Keep reading...
