NIN plays their last NYC show (maybe ever) tonight at Terminal 5. Peter Murphy showed up last night. Tonight Mew opens.

Where Brooklyn at? Matt and Kim are on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. Even weirder, Care Bears on Fire (who play Irving Plaza on Saturday) are on Letterman.

Georgiana Starlington, which has ex-Black Lips guitarist Jack Hines, has a monthly residency at Bruar Falls. Tonight they play with This Frontier Needs Heroes and Feather & Folly.

If today seemed slow that's because my computer kept crashing every 5 seconds. It makes me feel better to vent, so thanks!

Ellie Greenwich R.I.P.:

Ellie Greenwich, a songwriter who along with producer Phil Spector and co-writer Jeff Barry crafted some of the biggest and greatest singles of the 1960s, passed away at the age of 68. The AP reports that Greenwich died of a heart attack in New York’s Roosevelt Hospital, where she was battling pneumonia. Among the most famous songs that list Greenwich as a songwriter are the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” and “Baby, I Love You,” the Shangri-La’s “Leader of the Pack,” the Dixie Cups’ “Chapel of Love,” Tina & Ike Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High” and the Crystals’ “Then He Kissed Me” and “Da Doo Ron Ron.” Each of those landmark tracks were listed among Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Discovered by famed songwriters Leiber and Stoller, Greenwich’s other major hits include Manfred Mann’s “Doo Wah Diddy Diddy,” Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” and Tommy James’ and the Shondells’ “Hanky Panky.” Greenwich and Barry also helped nurture the career of a fledgling singer-songwriter named Neil Diamond, and Greenwich and Barry produced and contributed background vocals to Diamond hits like “Kentucky Woman,” “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon,” “Cherry, Cherry,” “Red, Red Wine” and “I’m a Believer.”
