Joe Jackson teamed up with Iggy Pop for a cover of Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," off Joe's upcoming Duke Ellington tribute album titled The Duke (out 6/26 via Razor & Tie). Check out a video of Joe and Iggy discussing that collaboration with some clips of the recording session below.

Radiohead, whose tour brought them to NJ for two Prudential Center shows two weeks ago, brings them back to NJ tonight for a Camden show at Susquehanna Bank Center.

The Northside Festival kicks off on Thursday (6/14) and the official BV showcase is on Friday (6/15) at MHOW with Caveman, Frankie Rose, Hume, and Fort Lean. We're giving away tickets to that on facebook.

Death Grips were supposed to play MHOW tonight but cancelled.

What else?

Sounds like a good day to stay home in my underwear, eat corn chips and masturbate.

Another Johnathan Richman gig, another night of extreme A/C cooled bliss at home. Cheers to all the saps that sweat like stuffed pigs at Bowery Ballroom tonight

To all you suckers that stay home and don't have energy to go out, I recommend you learn about the energy giving properties of PHYTO-NUTRIENTS.

I eat the chickpeas daily and bust rock and roll dancemoves (such as the hip thrust) at the club 7 nights per week!!!

Music Hall was nowhere close to being full.

5:34 bravo on the Kids in the Hall reference.

Marillion was obviously the band of the night all along. They smoked the house, as was expected. Of course, I'm aware that trendy hipsters don't get or acknowledge this band or bands like this, so I'm not the slightest bit surprised that this was "conveniently ignored". But they're still too good for anyone or anybody here.
