W.A.S.P. was scheduled to play Gramercy Theatre in NYC last night, but cancelled last minute.

"My sons and I were waiting for the doors of the theater to open when [W.A.S.P. mainman] Blackie [Lawless] walked by in what seemed to be a foul mood. Shortly after, I was told by a person waiting on the line that the show has been cancelled. Then we found out that Blackie was at the tour bus and would sign autographs for everyone. And to his credit, he did. He signed many autographs and allowed pictures to be taken.

"Blackie was very nice to everyone but upset that the band would not be performing.

"I do not know the details but from what I overheard, the [band] was [not] at fault." [Blabbermouth]

Will they show up at Starland Ballroom tonight?

Levon Helm's show at Wellmont Theatre tonight was originally scheduled during a snow storm.

Tickets go on general sale today for the Levon Helm / Willie Nelson show happening at Radio City Music Hall.

The all metal Bee Gees tribute band Tragedy is breaking up. Tonight at Bowery Ballroom is the last chance to see them.

Henry Rollins does spoken word at Irving Plaza tonight and tomorrow.

National went on around 10:20. Played till about midnight. one encore. three songs I think.
FYI- there was also a sign on the bathroom doors that said "Absolutely no photography of any kind, or you will be asked to leave. Thanks, The National." Not that that deterred anyone. Perhaps they just meant no photography in the bathrooms, because I didn't see the signs anywhere else.

Project of Love From the Fans of Henry Rollins

Thanks to Hank
WANTED: Personal stories from the fans, a.k.a, ‘fanatics’, of Henry Rollins. If Henry Rollins has moved you, inspired you to reach higher, helped you in some way, or just makes your life better by way of knowing he is out there, living art and inspiration, and you are willing to share your story in a future publication of Fanatic Stories of Thanks to Hank, please send your story!

The target goal is to complete the project by February of 2011, Henry’s 50th birthday. All potential proceeds will go to the charity of Henry’s choice.

Fanatic and novice writer, Angela Bennett, commented on the project, “Henry has made such a profound contribution to the lives of many thousands, perhaps even millions of people around the world. He is an inspiration to so many people regardless of age, race, or socioeconomic class. This is an opportunity for fanatics to share their stories with, and thank Henry.” During the first month of this project, fans and media are responding from across the world; from 15 year olds to 50 year olds, from the U.S. to Australia.
It’s one thing to be a fan of a band, or an actor, but often it’s about more than that when it comes to Henry. Henry moves people, he is a catalyst in people’s lives. There’s a quote from The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property, by Lewis Hyde, that captures Henry well, “…the gift we long for, the gift that, when it comes, speaks commandingly to the soul and irresistibly moves us."

People can contact Angela Bennett with stories, or artwork, at, through the Facebook Group, Henry Rollins – Thanks to Hank Project, or Angela does not work for, or represent Henry Rollins, other than being one of many grateful fanatics in the global neighbourhood.

Pitchfork has been handing out best new music much more readily for like over 2 years now. I think maybe they just changed their criteria. They did also used to have the "reccomended" category which usually went to band in the 8.0-8.9 range. So in order to get best new music they had to give you like a 9 or higher. I mean it used to be literally once every 2 months. That being said Titus definitely deserves this one and in my opinion and even high rating then they got.
