Flaming Lips in Toronto (more by David Andrako)
The Flaming Lips were planning on landing in Simsbury, CT on July 15th, but Simsbury, CT has decided Wayne Coyne and crew will need to make other plans:
The town has decided against having The Flaming Lips play at the performing arts center at Simsbury Meadows this summer.Major bummer Simsbury.
First Selectwoman Mary Glassman said the concert was conditionally approved pending a permit but that after conversations with Police Chief Peter Ingvertsen officials decided against the concert.
Glassman said the issue came down to staffing, and that it would have been difficult to get the necessary police officers in place for the concert, especially since the previously approved Emmylou Harris concert is planned for the following night. [Hartford Courant]
Meanwhile, the Flaming Lips have arrived in the NYC-area for a three-night run that looks like this:
Flaming Lips are here:Tune into Fallon tonight, get your tickets for the NJ show, and make sure to get to Prospect Park on Friday by 6:15!! The Darkness, Flaming Lips and Yeah Yeah Yeahs all on one bill has the makings of an epic show. It's just too bad that the Lips go on so early, and it's even sadder that the Darkness play at 4:45!
May 15 - The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon
May 16 - Montclair, NJ The Wellmont Theater
May 17 - Prospect Park Brooklyn, NY - GoogaMooga

by Bill Pearis
(via @SoundbitesNYC Instagram)
Pinback are never too far from my thoughts. Mainly because their billboard for new album, Information Retrieved, which the erected for the "Proceed to Memory" time-lapse video, is at the end of my block in Williamsburg and I pass by it every day.
Pinback won't be too from you either, most likely, as they'll be on an extensive North American tour this summer which hits NYC at Irving Plaza on September 13 with Deathfix (the project of Fugazi's Brenden Canty). Tickets for that show go on LiveNation and Music Geeks presales on Thursday (5/16) at 10 AM (Music Geeks password is "musicgeeks") with the regular on-sale happening Friday (5/17) at 10 AM.
All tour dates are listed, alongside the "Proceed to Memory" video, below.
Every year NYC's Madison Square Park, located at 23rd Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues, hosts a series of free "Oval Lawn Series" concerts in the summer. This year is no different...

Big muff superfuzz: ZZ Top @ Bergen PAC, 5/14/2013
Legendary, bearded, and legendarily bearded (except for the drummer, whose name is Beard) Texas hard rock trio ZZ Top, who will be at Bonnaroo this year, played Bergen Performing Arts Center in NJ last night (May 14), part of a larger ongoing tour for the band that puts them in Westbury NY for a sold-out show at Theater at Westbury tonight.

Each album is presented in a wallet sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original artwork, including the gatefold designs used for Tres Hombres and Tejas. The set presents, for the first time on CD, the original LP mixes for: ZZ Top's First Album, Rio Grande Mud and Tejas that have long been on the wish lists of the band's most fervent fans.Look for that at a merch table or retailer near you, and listen for songs from it at the dates listed, along with more pics from Bergen PAC, below...

Confused? Yes, I did just say Eazy E and Ol Dirty Bastard, both of which will be "virtual performances" as part of the travelling festival. AllHipHop reports:
Ol Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E's spirits will return to the stage at Rock The Bells this year, AllHipHop has learned.So far only four dates exist for Rock the Bells. They're all listed below. Two of them are on the East Coast and one is in the NYC area at Meadowlands Racetrack in Rutherford, NJ on October 4-5. Tickets go on presale Thursday (10/16) at noon, and regular sale on Saturday.
The pair of Hip-Hop legends will have holograms performing this year at the 10-year anniversary of the rap festival.
Eazy-E will perform virtually with Bone Thugs-In-Harmony and ODB will rock with Wu Tang. Organizers said Eazy never blessed the Rock The Bells stage and ODB only did once.
Also, the "holograms" are approved by Eazy-E's wife Tomica Wright and Ol Dirty's mother, Cherry Jones.
Tupac's Coachella appearance inspired the new virtual performances at Rock The Bells, organizers admitted.
Initial lineup (at least 15 more artists TBA), dates and some video below.
UK rock act The Cult are 30 years old this year and still going strong, having released Choice of Weapon in 2012. For their pearl anniversary, the band are celebrating the album that broke them big: 1987's Electric that found them shedding their goth beginnings in favor of big, AC/DC-style riffs, as exemplified on the album's hit, "Love Removal Machine." The band will perform the album in full on the "Electric 13" tour.
In related news, Beggars Banquet announced they will be releasing a box set titled Electric Peace, that combines Electric with their aborted 1987 album Peace (most of which was released on odds-n-sods comp Rare Cult a while back).
The Electric 13 tour will hit NYC at Roseland Ballroom on August 22. Tickets for that show go on CITI presame at 10 AM today, a LiveNation presale starts Thursday (5/14) at 10 AM, and the general on-sale happens Friday at 10 AM. All tour date are listed, along with an album stream and "Love Removal Machine" video, below.
