Amy Winehouse mermaid

The Fashion are back in town from Denmark and I'm being told that there will be open bar at their show at The Annex tonight from 11-12. The show is a night off from their tour with Alkaline Trio that actually does hit NYC on July 12th (at Irving Plaza).

Richard Lloyd and the Sufimonkey trio (that's Richard Lloyd of Television fame) are also playing Southpaw on July 23rd. "Richard Lloyd in the guise of Jamie Neverts has finished recording and mixing his record of Jimi Hendrix covers which will likely be released by Parasol Records in the fall. It will contain 10 songs on nine tracks."

Rob Dickinson's Fresh Wine for the Horses (deluxe 2-CD set) was released June 10, 2008 on Fontana International.

The Voodoo Experience fest announced their lineup. Modest Mouse played a very late show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

A Storm of Light are playing with Harvey Milk at Europa tonight. Check out our interview with Josh Graham.

What else?

First impression upon seeing that pic without reading the caption was, "she looks better, must be off the rock."

"Eddie Burns 8:30pm"

Mr. BV-How do you fuck that one up? Are you guilty of not reading the comments on your own site. Someone a few above you posted the information that came directly from Coldplay's site. It is a guy named Jon Hopkins opening up. And please tell me you are not going to be at this show. Credibility will be almost completely eradicated if so.

"Jon Hopkins"

"How do you fuck that one up? Are you guilty of not reading the comments on your own site. Someone a few above you posted the information that came directly from Coldplay's site."

a) relax.

b) the set times I posted came in an email today directly from a label person working on this show. I just asked them and their theory (they're not even 100% sure) is that Jon Hopkins is the "DJ" part of this lineup (which makes sense if you listen to his music):

--
Doors 7:00pm
DJ 8:00pm
Eddie Burns 8:30pm
COLDPLAY 9:20pm
--

and no, I didn't notice that comment that was posted 20 minutes earlier when I pasted the set times in to try and be helpful.

side note: Eddie Burns?

@Anon. 3:59: Easy, killer.

@BV 3:52: Jon Hopkins was scratched?

"Are you guilty of not reading the comments on your own site. "

Can't say I'd blame you for that, BV.

I am Anon 3:59

1)Am totally relaxed broseph.

2)I know who Ed Burns is. I just did not think it was that Ed Burns cause i did not know he had a band. That info though is even more of a reason to know how bad this show is going to be.

Ted Leo covered the Saints STRANDED last night in DC

Have Daft Punk gone on at the free Coldplay show yet?

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2008 8:31 PM

Ok, that Coldplay show was boring. Thank God tix were free. Not even an encore.

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2008 11:30 PM

Coldplay played for 1 hour.

No encore.

But to be fair, it was free, and they were solid while it lasted.

When the band relocated to the other side of the stadium on the 100 level, with a mic stand set up, t to play an acoustic version of "Yellow," that was a nice touch.

how tough was security?

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2008 11:55 PM

Not tough at all. They didn't check anything. I thought Coldplay were great.

Posted by michaelways | June 24, 2008 2:32 AM

So who DJ'ed and who opened?

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2008 2:53 AM

I don't even know. The DJ was pretty good though. Ambient and a bit subtle.

Posted by michaelways | June 24, 2008 8:53 AM

Fuck. I wanna see Ted/Rx covering Saints.
