Will a 10 year old in a crazy ass costume lead The L Magazine's Mardi Gras parade and burst into tears like in Brazil? Ah, Mardi Gras.

Yoko Ono concert was incredible. Encore was "Give Peace a Chance" featuring everyone back on stage to sing and play-- Sean Lennon, Bette Midler, Paul and Harper Simon, Justin Bond, Kim Deal and Thurston Moore, Klaus Voormann, and the rest of the Plastic Ono Band. Tons of great stuff through the whole night.

I didn't know Doug had died. He was a true inspiration.

I didn't know that the genius behind 'My Sharona' passed away this past year. My prayers of peace and comfort go out to all of his friends and family members. I don't know another song by him but that doesn't mean he wasn't talented and won't be missed.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
