"Earlier this morning Phish.com was updated with dates for Phish's June tour, announced with the help of a video which featured a plane skywriting with a Punch You In The Eye soundtrack. The tour takes the quartet from their home base in the Northeast down to Asheville and out to the Midwest." [Glide Magazine]
"The tour kicks off with the band's first visit to Long Island's Jones Beach amphitheater since 1995." The Jones Beach dates are June 4th & 5th. $49.50 tickets go on sale Friday January 30th at 10AM.

UPDATE: There is also a presale happening now.

Phish previously announced three March shows in Virginia, and there's the rumor that they'll also be playing Bonnaroo, to which Bob Lefsetz says...

"You might think this is bullshit. You'll point to the gross. You'll say everyone's happy. I'll say this is the kind of thinking that fucked up our business. It's only about money, not about soul. Phish should only think about its fans. Not its manager's need to sell out a festival that dropped significantly in attendance last year."
Hippies are going nuts. First the Dead, and now Phish. All dates below...

Like Kings of Leon did before them, My Morning Jacket have now "reconfigured their production to make available some amazing seats for their show on December 31. It's your chance to get the best seats in the house!"

The picture above is the cover of the new "Live From Bonnaroo 2008" DVD (that MMJ appears on). The trailer and tracklist for that, and all MMJ dates, below...

Yo Dude

Bonnaroo, the East Coast's premiere multi-day, multi-stage gathering of the vibes (held in Manchester, Tennessee from June 11th to 14th) usually doesn't release its lineup until early February -- but RollingStone.com hears from reliable sources close to Phish that the band will top the bill for two nights, restoring the fest to its jam-friendly roots.......Also being buzzed about with some legitimacy: Bruce Springsteen as Sunday night's closer...

As for Coachella, the fest reputed for reuniting many a dormant band (the Pixies in 2004, Rage Against the Machine in 2007), Blur is believed to be a frontrunner, though a show scheduled for London's Hyde Park in July raises some doubt -- would the Brits really forestall a comeback gig on their home turf for a U.S. one-off jaunt?.... [Rolling Stone]

Maybe Coachella will get "the Specials".


Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce the dates for the eighth annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Confirmed to take place June 11 - 14, 2009, the four-day festival will once again be held on the same beautiful, 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles southeast of Nashville. Ticket pre-sales for the festival will begin on December 4, 2008 and go through December 31st. These tickets will be specially priced ticket levels available exclusively for early purchase. VIP tickets will also be available during this time. In an unprecedented move, during our holiday pre-sale, general admission tickets will be available as well for five (5) payments of $50.00 plus applicable fees through our payment plan. To promote the pre-sale, Bonnaroo and comedian Lewis Black worked together to create a hilariously manic Crazy-Eddie inspired video.

ROTHBURY -- A man and a woman who attended the Rothbury Music Festival in Oceana County over the weekend died from separate medical issues Sunday.

A 33-year-old woman from New York and a 28-year-old man from Ohio suffered medical emergencies hours apart at the Rothbury festival Sunday and later died at Lakeshore Hospital in Shelby, Michigan State Police Lt. Dave Roesler said Tuesday.

The two deaths were separate incidents. Roesler said there is no reason to suspect foul play or anything unusual about the deaths. However, authorities are waiting for toxicology reports from the autopsies, which should be available in about four weeks.

Festival organizers said the woman was accompanied by a service animal and had a previous medical condition. [freep]

It is not clear whether the deaths happened before, during, or after the mini Phish reunion (no disrespect to the dead) (no pun intended).

The Grammy winner walked onto the festival stage nearly two hours past his scheduled 2:45 a.m. performance time Sunday morning and was greated by bleary-eyed fans' chorus of boos and chants of "Kanye sucks." [E Online]

Ken Weinstein, a spokesman for the annual festival held on a 700-acre site south of Nashville, said the delay was simply a matter of unloading the Pearl Jam stage (the band went an hour past its scheduled end time, playing until about 1:15 a.m.) and loading the West stage. [AP]

Did you go to (le) poisson rouge yet? Damon & Naomi played last night. How is it?

The above paparazzi picture of Thurston @ Starbucks happened on Friday. I wonder if he has a free-coffee-for-life card. Later that night he played Knitting Factory.

It rained on R.E.M. It rained on My Morning Jacket. It rained on Vampire Weekend. It rained on Death Cab For Cutie. It rained on Adam Green's parade. A member of Sigur Ros was in the hospital. Iron Maiden lost their sound.

Knitting Factory is coming to Brooklyn.

Kirk Hammett of Metallica & My Morning Jacket @ Bonnaroo 2008
My Morning Jacket

Bonnaroo resides on farmland about 65 miles southeast of Nashville, with campgrounds adjoining the festival site. It draws people who arrive for a long weekend, often with hippie wardrobes and mud boots for Bonnaroo's nearly inevitable rain.

Fans stood through an intermittent deluge as My Morning Jacket, a band from Louisville that pushes pealing, surging Southern rock toward soul and psychedelia, played a three-hour set in Saturday's wee hours. "It feels awesome to be bathed in beautiful golden rain," said the band's leader, Jim James. [NY Times]

They'll probably play at least that long at MSG on New Years Eve too. Check out the setlist and more pictures below....

Sigur Ros @ Bonnaroo

Sigur Ros had a little scare at a show before Bonnaroo...

...Orri is by now in the back of an ambulance at side of stage, with a drip going in one arm, and a blood pressure test on the other. It is very, very worrying. Everyone is in a state of shock. It is clear Orri will take no further part in tonight, so we get a setlist and attempt to work out what songs can be played without a drummer. It's not many. We settle on five, most of which were not on the original setlist, since they are by definition mellow...
Luckily everything seems to be all alright now....

As usual, Madonna added more shows at MSG than she originally announced. Tickets are on sale for the fourth one.

Keeping with the 80's theme (mainstream 80's), Billy Idol tickets are on sale.

Not mainstream (not even 80's) (they broke up in '79): Teenage Jesus & The Jerks are playing their reunion shows tonight.

The Fratellis play Webster Hall in NYC tonight (June 13). They also play a free show at the Virgin Megastore in Union Square at 12:30 pm THIS AFTERNOON. You might have already seen that listed on the free events calendar.

Also on the free events calendar: where to get free Trojan condoms in NYC until 2pm today, where in Brooklyn you'll find a Pride festival tomorrow, and what free shows are happening at BAM this weekend.

Black Kids @ R Bar, NYC (BV CMJ) - Oct 19, 2007 (Tod Seelie)
Black Kids @ R Bar
Black Kids @ R Bar

As you know, Cut Copy are playing SXSW, Coachella, Mercury Lounge and Studio B (on March 15th). And as you know, Black Kids are playing Coachella and Bonnaroo. What you might not know yet is that the most talked about band at CMJ this year are also returning to NYC in May to play Studio B (on May 13th), and that they're going on a tour with Cut Copy after Coachella (which includes a lot of dates, but none in NYC....or maybe they just can't announce it yet....).

I saw Black Kids twice during CMJ, and I'll admit that the first time (@ Annex) was a let down, but the band was nervous and there were technical difficulties. They were much better at R Bar, though that could come off as biased since it was my show (a little more on that here). Seriously though, I thought they were pretty good at that one, and I'm definitely curious to hear and see more next time. All dates below....

Emerging from a lengthy stint in a Parisian studio, electro-pop mavens Ladytron are finally set to return with Velocifero, the follow-up to 2005's opus Witching Hour, slated to land stateside June 3 courtesy of their new label, Nettwerk Music Group. The new record was produced by Ladytron with additional production by Alessandro Cortini (Modwheelmood, NIN), and Vicarious Bliss of Ed Banger Records (Justice, etc), and mixing courtesy of Michael Patterson (Beck, P. Diddy). Not coincidentally, Ladytron will hit the road this spring alongside sonically like-minded outfit Datarock, and also appear at this summer's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. [Spin]
Tickets are on sale for a June 25th show at Terminal 5 in NYC. All dates below....
