Yeasayer in Austin earlier this month (more by Tim Griffin)

We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

Yeasayer played Summerstage last night (9/12). We missed them but caught them in Austin where Dead Can Dance also recently played. How was the NY show?

As BV Chicago pointed out, Smashing Pumpkins frontman BIlly Corgan opened a tea shop outside of Chicago, and he played acoustic sets there today to celebrate.

Bat For Lashes is releasing her new album, The Haunted Man, on October 21. Back in July, she revealed the first album cut, "Laura," and today she's let loose a second taste of the album. Continuing a trend thus far of naming songs after women's names, this one's called "Marilyn." You can stream it below.

The final track on the new Lower Dens album, Nootropics, has become the inspiration for a new beer brewed by Stillwater Artisanal Brewing for their new Stillwater Sensory Series. The beer is called "Stillwater Artisanal, Sensory Series v.1 - Lower Dens" and will be out this November with a QR code on each bottle that leads to an exclusive video of Lower Dens performing the song when scanned.

The Walkmen, whose tour brings them to NYC for a show at Terminal 5 on October 18 with Dum Dum Girls (tickets) will play Conan tonight.

Green Day have an international tour which brings them to NYC for shows at Irving Plaza this Saturday (9/15) and Barclays Center on January 16. While Green Day are getting ready for their Irving show on Saturday, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong showed up to The Bowery Electric for a surprise acoustic set last night (9/11) with Green Day touring guitarist Jason White for their Old Soul Revival weekly songwriter series. Other guests included Tommy Stinson (of The Replacements), who played with his daughter Ruby, and Jesse Malin. Billie mainly played material off their three upcoming full lengths, but threw in a few classics as well. Here's a video of him playing "Rusty James."

We're presenting a last-minute Jon Spencer Blues Explosion show at The Bowery Electric on September 18, the date their new album, Meat and Bone, comes out. Head HERE for details on how to win tickets.

Grindcore heroes Pig Destroyer are releasing their new album, Book Burner, on October 23 via Relapse and they just revealed the first cut from that album, Burning Palm, which you can listen to via a lyric video. Pig Destroyer will be in NYC for CMJ on October at Public Assembly with KEN Mode, Early Graves, and Encrust (tickets).

The Steve Albini quote -

I have no fundamental problem with either asking your fans to pay you to make your record or go on tour or play for free in your band or gather at a mud pit downstate and sell meth and blowjobs to each other. I wouldn't stoop to doing any of them myself, but horses for courses. The reason I don't appeal to other people in this manner is that all those things can easily pay for themselves, and I value self-sufficiency and independence, even (or especially) from an audience.

If your position is that you aren't able to figure out how to do that, that you are forced by your ignorance into pleading for donations and charity work, you are then publicly admitting you are an idiot, and demonstrably not as good at your profession as Jandek, Moondog, GG Allin, every band ever to go on tour without a slush fund or the kids who play on buckets downtown.

Pretty much everybody on earth has a threshold for how much to indulge an idiot who doesn't know how to conduct herself, and I think Ms Palmer has found her audience's threshold.

Yeasayer sucked. I was so bored and the crowd was awful...Tanlines was cool though.
