As mentioned last week, "A Conversation with David Cross" is happening at 92Y's Kaufman Center on March 20. When we posted about this originally, we didn't know, exactly, who he'd be in conversation with. Well now we do. The conversation will be moderated by Cross' Arrested Development co-star, Michael Cera. Tickets are still available.
The much-anticipated fourth season of Arrested Development will debut in May via Netflix streaming. The show will, apparently, feature episodes based around a single character instead of the "meanwhile" format of the first three seasons. Look for guest appearances from Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig and James Lipton as well. Like they did with political drama House of Cards, Netflix will make all 14 episodes of Season 4 available on the same day.
It seemed inevitable that Adele would be tapped to do a Bond theme and here we are with Skyfall. The movie actually looks like it might be good! As for the theme song, Adele and cowriter/producer Paul Epworth are channeling classic John Barry-era Bond and will be drawing comparisons to Shirley Bassey. A lyric video of the song is at the bottom of this post. (you can also buy it on iTunes)
Speaking of buying on iTunes, that's one place you can get the new album by Flying Lotus who just announced a CMJ show which happens about a week after all his other NYC appearances including this weekend's record fair.
Still time to get a ticket to our free-with-free-ticket AC Newman show happening Monday in Brooklyn. Meanwhile you can stream the new album in its entirety below.
The Punch Brothers are on tour and have plenty of upcoming shows, like Gramercy Theater on 10/5, and Bowery Ballroom on New Year's Eve, and The Paramount Theater in Long Island on October 7, which we're giving away tickets to on Facebook (you can also buy some).
Speaking of the Punch Brothers, as mentioned, primary Brother Chris Thile is one of this year's MacArthur Fellows. Which means he gets lots of money. Congrats also to winner Claire Chase of the International Contemporary Ensemble (aka ICE)., Maybe you caught her recently at the new Original Music Workshop venue, or during the 2010 Bang on a Can Marathon, or at one of the many other times she has performed in and around Brooklyn where she lives.
The big Animal Collective show at Williamsburg Park is this Friday. Tickets are still available. If you go, make sure and get there early for Micachu & the Shapes, or just go see Micachu headline LPR on Monday with recently added opener Mykki Blanco. Win tickets at the BV Facebook.
Micachu also DJs a Brooklyn Bass-presented After Hours party at Cameo Gallery (10/5) after the Williamsburg Park show with DJ Rezzie, No GLow, Evan MIchael, Judge Wise, and T'Angelo. It starts at midnight and admission is $8 at the door or $5 with RSVP to email@example.com.
Sondre Lerche, who recently played Austin, is on tour and plays the Wolf's Den @ Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT on Friday (10/5).
Kraftwerk, Rush and Public Enemy might be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
Finally an answer to Rolling Stone's "Women Who Rock!" issue: Seattle's The Stranger presents, "Men Who Rock!," complete with sexy pinup photos. Hot! What, no Lars Finberg?
PD spotted what is estimated to be 7-10 Million Dollars worth of pot growing on a Chicagoland farm with "plants as big as trees."
The first "official" photos of the reunited cast of Arrested Development have surfaced. The improbably fourth season of the show will "air" (stream) on Netflix in 2013. Meanwhile, New York Magazine has details on how you can win a walk-on.

DOWNLOAD: Hospitality - Friends of Friends (MP3)
Hospitality's long-in-the-works debut album is out next week (1/31) on Merge and the band have just released a video for the horn-filled "Friends of Friends." In addition to the band playing in someone's well-equipped kitchen, the video tells the story of a relationship stretched between coasts, as played by Arrested Development's Alia Shawkat and Videogum's Gabe Delahaye (who was also recently in Real Estate's video for "Easy"). You can download the MP3 of "Friends of Friends" at the top of this post. The whole album's terrific, one of my early favorites of the year, and Spotify users can get an early listen to the whole thing here.
You can pick up the album at Hospitality's record release show at Glasslands next Friday (2/3) which also has Glass Ghost and Dustin Wong on the bill. The band are also heading out on a quick tour of both coasts and will be in Austin for SXSW. All scheduled tour dates are below.
In other Hospitality news, the band play WFMU's Seven Second Delay at UCB this Wednesday (1/25, 6PM) and have just released a Daytrotter session. Below is the "Friends of Friends" video and those upcoming tour dates.

If you like music, comedy, literacy, food, eyeglasses, politics, small vintage leather messenger bags, journalism, the literati, people taking notes, men who sit with their legs crossed a little too tightly, and Molskine journals, then I bet you were all over BV's recent post about the 2011 New Yorker Festival which features events taking place all over the city from September 30th through October 2nd, 2011. At least, I hope you were all over it because tickets for a majority of the events semi-sold-out shortly after they went on-sale on September 9th. I say "semi-sold-out" because, well, there are actually a few opportunities to get tix between now and showtime. According to The New Yorker Festival website:
Friday, September 30th, at SVA Theatre: Ten per cent of tickets to all events will be available at the theatre, at 333 West 23rd Street (between Eighth and Ninth Avenues). Tickets will be sold on Friday, September 30th, from 12 noon to 4 P.M. First come, first served.I sure hope the above ticket scenario holds true, because the New Yorker Festival peeps have added another, absolutely jaw-dropping, event, which though not on sale yet, will surely sell right out. It is: An ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT REUNION!! Did you just shart? Oh man, when I heard I did too. Not a big deal buddy!
At the door: A limited number of tickets will be sold at the door to each event one hour before start time, with the exception of Morning at the Frick, Come Hungry, the Cartoon Caption Game, Beyond Words, High on the Hog, Inside the Artist's Studio, and Sunset on Spruce. First come, first served. Cash only.
On Sunday, October 2nd, Nancy Franklin will moderate an exclusive "Bluth family reunion" panel, featuring the creator of "Arrested Development," Mitchell Hurwitz, and the cast: Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter.
The event will take place at Acura at SIR Stage37 (408 West 37th Street) at 4 P.M. Tickets are $30 and will go on sale here beginning at noon E.T. on Wednesday, September 21st.
Swoon. So now, besides Radiohead, I have yet another show to worry about not getting tickets to.
In other Arrested Development-related news, Alia Shawkat, famous for her role as Mae "Maeby" Fünke, has been moonlighting as a jazz vocalist. On Thursday September 22nd 2011, Alia makes her debut as a jazz vocalist when she hits the stage at Littlefield in Brooklyn. Supercute! opens. Tickets are on sale now!

Speaking of parties up North this summer... three other biggies are Ottawa Bluesfest (July 8th-19th), Vancouver Folk Music Festival (July 17-19th) and Calgary Folk Music Festival (July 23rd-26th). Each of those suitably transcend the "blues" and "folk" labels, hosting bands like The Dead Weather and Yeah Yeah Yeahs (in Ottawa), The Weakerthans and Rock Plaza Central (in Vancouver), and The Decemberists, Apostle of Hustle, Kid Koala and Akron/Family (in Calgary). Full lineup for the Calgary Fest (Ottawa in particular is much too massive to post) and ticket info below.
And don't forget about the previously reported Breeders-headlined Sled Island Fest in Calgary on June 24th-27th, Montreal's Osheaga, NXNE, and Toronto's Olympic Island Fest on July 11th, which will host Broken Social Scene and its Arts & Crafts cohorts.
Across the pond, UK's Glastonbury Festival, which runs from June 24th to 28th, has been sold out since February even though the full lineup wasn't announced until this week. Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and Blur will be joined by The Specials, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Spinal Tap, Jarvis Cocker, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Madness, Tom Jones, Animal Collective and many others.
And finally in the States, Monolith Festival, which runs from September 12th to 13th at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Colorado, has announced its intial lineup, Girl Talk, Passion Pit, and The Walkmen included. The whole thing is posted below.
The weekend before Monolith, Bumbershoot will take place in Seattle (September 5th-7th). That fest's lineup has been updated too. New additions include Vivian Girls, Akron/Family, and Elvis Perkins. All new additions, with previously announced acts, are below. Tickets are still on sale.
In Michigan, the Rothbury Festival over July 4th weekend will feature the only summer fest performance by The Dead, as well as sets by Bob Dylan, String Cheese Incident, Broken Social Scene and more. A few more jam-friendly acts were also just added to the bill. Full lineup below. Tickets are on sale.

The Flaming Lips are hitting at least 17 music festivals this summer. Of that 17, four have already happened. There was Summer Camp, Jam on the River and Sasquatch. And then there was last weekend at Wakarusa in Lawrence, Kansas (home of Williams S Burroughs from 1981-1997). Like Jam on the River, Wakarusa was heavy on the jam bands. STS9, Lotus, Galactic, Tea Leaf Green, and Keller Williams were all on the bill. So were Mates of State, Dr. Dog, Cake, Tilly and the Wall, Bettye Lavette, Old 97's, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Arrested Development, Built to Spill and many more. And like a lot of summer festivals, Wakarusa was forced to deal with rain delays and related artist cancellations. And there was camping....
People of all ages find elaborate ways to set up their campsites, entertain themselves, sleep comfortably, at least as well as you can in 85 degrees, and grill up some grub. Since it's equal parts music and camping at Wakarusa, having the right supplies improves the experience. T.J. Baker, 23, Lawrence, said sleeping comfortably is key. Hammocks are the best, he said.No, there was no going back.
"I'm envious I don't have one with me, especially for napping," he said, looking at a yellow hammock his friend was sound alseep in. Eric Blakie, 22, and Jake Via, 23, both from Buffalo, N.Y., made the 16-hour road trip for the festival, so there was no going back for that forgotten toothbrush or towel... [Lawrence Journal]
As you know by now, Flaming Lips have integrated nudity into their already-over-the-top stage show. That stayed true at Wakarusa and one of the girls even seemed to be sending NYC a message. We read you loud and clear...
