Godspeed, Avalanches, Stone Roses, Chemical Brothers live film, Adam Ant tour dates? So much stuff this last week.

Lots of stuff this week.  I'm using the "predict a coachella appearance" expression a bit too much for my taste.  There are just a lot of tour dates announced and they all put bands in Southern California in late April.  In any case, lots of good stuff this week, enjoy!

  • I recently discovered The Wedding Present and I'm glad to see they'll be touring next year. 
  • Godspeed You! Black Emperor schedules 2012 tour date (that's "date", singular)   (update, they had one Big Sur show at the time of writing but have added on a 5-night stand in San Francisco.)
  • The Avalanches Attack Bon Iver Over Whiskey Advertisements, Grammys.  (I love the fact that the Avalanches are still in the news despite not having released anything in 10 years)
  • Interpol, Four Tet and Deerhunter contribute tracks to Japan tsunami benefit album 
  • Watch the Stone Roses' Ian Brown and John Squire reunite onstage in Manchester for charity gig. 
  • Kasabian announces 2012 North American tour (I predict a Coachella appearance) 
  • This Is What the Music Industry Looked Like When Napster First Arrived... 
  • Chemical Brothers are releasing a live film called, "Don't Think." Watch the trailer now... 
  • Ticketmaster to refund ticket buyers 
  • Can't Smoke, Can't Drink, But you can see Adam Ant next year! First American trek in 16 years 
  • Check Out: School of Seven Bells – “The Night” 
  • Stone Roses add 2 shows before the Manchester gigs. Hmm.. maybe Coachella 2012 is still a possibility? 
  • Fugazi puts hundreds of concerts online. Why don't more bands do this?!? 
  • The Polyphonic Spree – “It’s Christmas”  (I can't be the only one that misses them)
  • Stream: VCMG, ‘Spock’ — debut single from Depeche Mode’s Martin L. Gore, Vince Clarke 
  • Album Review: Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dream [Deluxe Edition] 
  • Parasol Shuts Down Mail Order, Store 
  • Justice announces 2012 U.S. tour (No LA date... I predict a Coachella appearance) 
  • Bob Mould to perform Sugar’s ‘Copper Blue’ on ‘very limited’ 20th anniversary tour 
  • I still like Silversun Pickups, they released some tracks for Black Friday
