Marianne Dissard, the female voice in Calexico's song "Ballad of Cable Hogue", plays Joe's Pub tonight with Cordero who I saw live when they opened for Calexico.

Thieving Irons is the new band from Pela Nate. They play Union Hall tonight.

Tonight will be one of the last Cross Pollination shows at Pianos, and it's on the main stage.

As BBG previously pointed out, "Florida's Khann will team up with Mockingbird, Before The Eyewall, and Divider for an all ages show at Acheron on August 24th. $10 gets you in the door. Khann are prepping their new LP, Erode, due on Black Market Activities later this year. The band recorded the LP with Chris Owens (Lords) during a recent East Coast tour that saw them appear at Lit Lounge with Tiger Flowers."

Scissor Sisters play their first of two shows at Terminal 5 tonight.

Ra Ra Riot will pull double duty today, and their new album (the occasion for it all) is streaming at AOL. The new video for "Boy" is below..

What else?

I love that Creed @ Jones Beach is all caps. It speaks to the cultural importance of the event.

how were mmj last night? too bad they aren't opening tonight at msg, would have considered it. petty can eat a dick tho.

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 11:27 AM

I thought the sound for MMJ was very muddy..could hear Jim at all. Sound was very loud too...

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 11:41 AM

@11:41 i thought mmj's sound was great, vocals were high in the mix, but for petty the vocals were wayyyyy too far down in the mix and the sound was muddy.

perhaps has to do with seating- i was on far stage right and saw a video shoot from straight on of petty and the sound was much better.

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 4:01 PM

I was on the other side of the arena but centered...Petty sound was better vut as you said depends on where you sit.
