Conan's leaving 30 Rock for Carson's old desk at The Tonight Show on March 2nd, and as P4K reports, the last band to play the Late Night studio on his watch will be long-time O'Brien-chums Jack and Meg White. It's sad Conan's leaving NYC! But by moving to L.A. he will be much closer to Norm MacDonald all the time, and that is such a good news for laughter. - Source

On NPR website, there is a weekly show called All Songs Considered and they have archived several full concerts from artists like Death Cab For Cutie, Secret Machines, My Morning Jacket, White Stripes, Sigur Ros, Interpol and more. I'm listening to the Secret Machines right now and it's stunning. GO NPR!!
Once again trying to align themselves with indie cool, iTunes has arranged a promotion in conjunction with THE WHITE STRIPES. Available TODAY as an exclusive download, you can be the first on your block to hear the new White Stripes single, "Blue Orchid." It's available exclusively through iTunes (or your nearest free-music-off-the-internet haunt within 24 hours, most likely.) The single officially comes out in May, and the new White Stripes album, "Get Behind Me, Satan," is due worldwide the first week of June.
UPDATE: If you wanna hear the track NOW, a streaming version is now available
THE WHITE STRIPES have a new record coming out in April. But that's probably old news to you, because if you're on the internet, chances are you already own it, as an advance copy of "Elephant" has snuck its way onto the Net and is likely being downloaded by 2,592 people as you read this. As news of the mass bootlegging hit the band, Jack White posted this to the White Stripes website:
"I'm very sad at some of you for peeking at your Christmas presents before Christmas morning. Can't you wait? We want you to have it when we want you to have it. It's unfair that some get a taste and confuse others before they have the chance to have it for themselves, but the devil is at work here and you will pay for your impatience. This world of have-it-now, millisecond attention span and gross neglect for quality is getting old."
As a result of the leak, the release date of "Elephant" has been bumped from April 15th to April 1st.
