How much would you pay?

Of all the Record Store Day 2014 exclusives, the one now going for the most dough on the internet is Jack White's "Lazaretto" -- aka the "World's Fastest Released Record" which was recorded live, mastered and pressed in about three hours on Saturday (4/19). One copy already sold for a whopping $649.99 on eBay. If you just want to hear the thing, White has put it on YouTube and you can listen to that -- and watch a making-of video and check out the tracklist to his new album -- below.

Other profitable RSD14 flips were the Mudhoney Live at KEXP test pressing ($500); the R.E.M. Unplugged Box set (going for around $200), and the eight-LP Cake box set (averaging around $400 so it breaks down to $50 per LP).

The Flaming Lips in San Francisco on Halloween (more by Chris Tuite)
Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, Tegan & Sara, Cold War Kids and Cake are among the artists announced for the next Amnesty International Human Rights Concert, which takes place this year at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on February 5. The concert also features Colbie Caillat, Imagine Dragons, The Fray, and other special guests. Tickets go on sale Saturday (1/11) at 10 AM with an AmEx presale starting Thursday (1/9) at 10 AM and an Internet presale starting Friday (1/10) at 10 AM.

Some background on the Amnesty concerts, via press release:

Twenty-five years after its initial concert series, which featured U2, Sting, Lou Reed and others, Amnesty International is bringing back the concert - with a digital twist - to raise awareness about human rights to a new generation. The Amnesty International Bringing Human Rights Home concert will use technology to connect the music and message in real time from the stage of the Barclays Center to activists across the globe.

"The fight for global human rights begins at home," said Steven W. Hawkins, executive director for Amnesty International USA. "This concert is part of an evolving conversation about human rights that grounds the universal struggle for dignity and freedom in the injustices we see every day in our own backyard in the United States. We're bringing back the concerts to show a new generation of activists how to stand up for justice at home and abroad - whether it is fighting for the right to voice dissent peacefully on social networks or in the streets, protecting the rights of women and girls, or standing in solidarity with individuals persecuted for who they are or what they believe."

Letterman

For those keeping score, your man Klaus has played drums in many many unpopular and unsignable bands since 1991. I've dragged my 1964 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl 4 piece kit (2nd rack tom not shown) with 1965 Gretsch snare (all of which were purchased in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts for $175) from one end of the earth (the Northeast) to the other (the Midwest mostly) hundreds of times. 'Tis a gorgeous kit, in phenomenal condition, and I have endured hundreds if not millions of compliments regarding it's eye-watering beauty. I am a man who appreciates a nice set of drums. And I'm a man who appreciates a man who appreciates a nice set of drums. Therefore, I am a man who appreciates this wonderful compilation video featuring the great David Letterman appreciating his various musical guest's gear, focusing primarily, but not exclusively, drums. The video, and a list of who is in it, including GBV, Feist, Beirut, James Blake, The Strokes, Mastodon, St. Vincent, and many many more, is below. Behold!

Likable and long-running pop ironists Cake released Showroom of Compassion are playing Wellmont Theatre on January 12 (tickets) but have just added a NYC show as well the day before (1/11) at Bowery Ballroom.

Weeze & Matt & Kim @ Deluna Fest
Deluna Festival
Deluna Festival

Do you think Matt & Kim ever get depressed? Like down-in-the-dumps, face-on-the-bathroom-tile, razor-to-the-wrist bummed? And do you think any of that anger is channeled into their music in ways not visibly noticed? Is that perma-simpleton-smile actually a front for an aryan-supremacy agenda spelled out in morse code via the band's shiny light show? Head to a New Year's Eve celebration at Hammerstein Ballroom with Super Mash Brothers to do some investigation and report back if you come across some leads. Tickets are on sale. All of their dates are listed below.

Matt & Kim was one of many artists to perform in Florida at Deluna Fest from 10/14 - 10/16, joining names like Ra Ra Riot, Stars, Ladytron, Girl Talk, Weezer, Cake and others. Belated pictures from the first day of that festival that Jane's Addiction also played, are in this post. Many more below.

Ra Ra Riot has been touring since Deluna. They don't have anything scheduled in NYC, but they will be on the road for a while and all of their dates are also listed below...

Cake

After a tumultuous early evening (I'm sure you heard or experienced it), Cake took to the stage at Rumsey Playfield (Summerstage) in Central Park to play a round of jams last night (9/16) to a wet crowd. Raincoats were not an uncommon site. Though the heaviest of the precipitation had long since passed by the time the band had launched into their set, Summerstage did get its share of rain during the band's performance though reportedly it did not disrupt Cake's set which kicked off at 8pm (no opening band) (it was "an evening with Cake"). The played "The Distance", "Frank Sinatra", "Comfort Eagle" and other songs before eventually shuffling off stage after 10PM, with a 15 minute intermission in between.

The show is part of a larger tour for Cake, and was the first of a string of seven Summerstage shows that continue tonight with Ween. More pictures from last night, below...
