James Blake is here.

Paul McCartney's son James McCartney is not here (or just not feeling well) (Rockwood Music Hall show cancelled).

Someone billed as "McQueen & Hall & Oates" is playing Rockwood tonight though. I'm not sure who it is, but if this tweet was meant to be a hint, than don't get your hopes up I guess. That said, I have no idea.

Oh and tickets are back on sale for the Chris Thile shows happening at Rockwood tonight and tomorrow.

We're giving away tix for the Ben Sollee shows happening at Rockwood tomorrow and the next day, via Facebook.

check out This Week in Indie

We're giving away tix on Facebook to tonight's Drop the Lime gig.

We're also giving away tix to the upcoming School of Seven Bells, Sun Airway, White Lies show at Terminal 5 on Facebook.

I thought James Blake was a tennis player. Why is Bieber in the headline picture?

Two years from now, nobody will give a shit about James Blake.

Justin Bieber is way older than James Blake.

I don't get the hate for James Blake. While I much prefer Burial/Four Tet/Kode9/Matthew Dear/Pantha, I admit the dude is 22 years old, has a good voice and has mixed two genres really well. No one was bitching when he was releasing really good dubstep tracks. If James Blake, Jamie XX, Nicolas Jaar and Chancha Via Circuito are the future of meaningful electronic music then I am very excited.

Listening to Pitchfork on the iPhone with the new Hype Machine Radio app = priceless (and hipster).
