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.

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.

Mean Jeans @ Cake Shop - 6/20/2012
The recently released The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore compilation release will be celebrated tonight (6/25) and tomorrow (6/26) at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. The comp, out via Adeline Records (aka Billie Joe of Green Day's label), features sixteen bands in total. Larry Livermore, who co-founded Lookout! Records, compiled the album. Larry says:
When Billie Joe asked me to put together this compilation, my First reaction was to say, 'Absolutely not.' I was too busy with other projects, and besides, I'd been saying for years that I was done with the music business, that people should take me out and shoot me if I ever showed any sign of wanting to get back into it," said Livermore. "But then I realized that this was an opportunity to do for a whole new crop of bands what we'd been able to accomplish at Lookout back in the 80s and 90s, which was to bring exciting and passionate music to the attention of a public that might otherwise never get to hear it. Once I thought about it in that light, it was impossible to say no...Check out The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore cover art and tracklist at the bottom of this post. Ten of the bands on the comp will make an appearance at the Knit shows. The Copyrights, Dear Landlord, Night Birds, Dopamines, and Mean Jeans play tonight/Monday (tickets). Emily's Army, House Boat, Mixtapes, Lipstick Homicide, and City Mouse play tomorrow (tickets).
...I chose the bands using the same standards I used when I was at Lookout: I looked for those bands with a certain heart and soul that sets them apart from the literally thousands of run of the mill bands out there, the heart and soul that makes them capable of giving voice not just to their own ideals and visions, but to those of a generation.
Mean Jeans is currently on tour supporting their recent Mean Jeans on Mars LP. The band swung through Cake Shop on June 20 alongside Hollywood, Liquor Store and Foster Care. Pictures of three of the four (we missed Hollywood) from that Manhattan show are below.
Ted Leo posted the following today:
LOOKOUT! IST KAPUTT.Other bands who have called Lookout! home include Alkaline Trio, Ann Beretta, Avail, The Avengers, Bratmobile, Citizen Fish, The Donnas, Engine Down, Go Sailor, Green Day, The Groovie Ghoulies, The Hi-Fives, Hockey Night, Mary Timony, Neurosis, Operation Ivy, Pretty Girls Make Graves, The Queers, Rancid, Screeching Weasel, Vagrants, The Mr T Experience, The Zero Boys, and many, many more.
I've been getting a lot of Twitter questions about why a bunch of my records have disappeared from all the digital services (Sportify, iDudes, Mandora, etc.). It's because our beloved Lookout Records, which ceased releasing new material in 2006, but carried on keeping the catalog in print until this past December, has, sadly, shuttered it's windows for good. A better eulogy should be forthcoming, but just to answer these questions, this means that these records have reverted to my complete ownership, which is kind of cool in some ways, I guess, except that it also means I have to basically run my own label for them now unless I wind up licensing them to someone else in the future. In the immediate, I have to go through some legal stuff with the digital services to get the records back up online, and I'm hoping to have that all taken care of very soon. Physical records are now officially out of print and will likely not be repressed for a while (but I'm sure I'll get around to it eventually). I do have a bunch of stock laying around with no plans to tour for quite a while, so if there's interest, maybe I'll set up a web-store so you can buy direct from me if you want. Please feel free to email or tweet me with ideas for that. All entertaining ideas will be entertained!
And thank you, seriously, for giving a crap. I'm not happy to see Lookout gone, but having complete rights of usage and total and direct revenue from sales now, can ultimately turn this into a positive situation. I just have to get creative about it. Might try to bang one out more special Tyranny of Distance event before the 10th anniversary year is over this spring...

"There were no special effects during Soundgarden's performance on the last night of Lollapalooza -- no lasers, no costume changes, no props or hydraulics. Even the video screens switched over to black and white. But the band didn't need any added visuals: Soundgarden delivered an explosive set of classic '90s songs in front of their biggest audience since their breakup 13 years ago. Chris Cornell underplayed the band's return, suggesting their decade-plus break was more like a few years. "It's good to be back!" said Cornell, who's grown his hair back out to its late-'80s length. "We just took a little break, but now we're back."" [Rolling Stone]Soundgarden's Sunday night setlist (they played against Arcade Fire), a bunch of of videos and the rest of our 2010 Lollapalooza pictures, below...

"Lollapalooza wheeled out some big headliners in its sixth year on the Chicago lakefront, as a record 240,000 people poured into Grant Park over three days to see 130 performers, including Lady Gaga, Green Day and reunited grunge-era icons Soundgarden.The 2010 edition of Lollapalooza went down in Chicago on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A set of pictures from the first two of those days, continue below...
Size matters at Lollapalooza, as the festival expanded its reach westward by shutting down Columbus Avenue and spreading eight stages across 110 acres, up from 80 acres in previous years. Columbus Avenue was converted into a giant sidewalk lined with portable toilets, a simple but effective improvement that allowed fans to avoid the dreaded Buckingham Fountain bottleneck that had turned previous festivals into human traffic jams. The festival topped its previous three-day record of 225,000, reached the last two years.
Still, there was little room during some performances at the northernmost stages on Butler Field, where fans jostled shoulder-to-shoulder for space to see performances by Metric, Phoenix and Arcade Fire. Note to Austin, Texas-based promoters C3 Presents: How about widening the southern entrance to Butler Field or moving one of the stages onto Columbus Drive to relieve what is becoming an annual problem? It's only going to get worse if the festival approaches its new capacity of 95,000 a day in future years." [Chicago Tribune]
not-Drake @ The South Street Seaport (more)
Another Drake show in New York has been nixed before the rapper even got a chance to take the stage. Drizzy was in talks to play a free outdoor show July 16 as part of ABC's "Good Morning America" summer concert series. However, the Drake show has been squashed and the cast of Broadway's "American Idiot" will fill the upcoming slot instead.Drake is playing Radio City Music Hall on September 29th though. Tickets go on "Internet Presale" at 10am (password = HEDRAKE or venue or DZ100), and general sale starts Saturday at 10am.
A spokesperson for ABC confirmed that a potential Drake show was in the works. "We were interested in having Drake perform, but he was never officially booked," an ABC rep told MTV News. In addition, a spokesperson for the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation told MTV News that concert organizers had simply decided to go with another act. "There was an open date on the calendar for July 16, but they decided to feature the cast of the Broadway show 'American Idiot,' " a rep said. [MTV]

After appearing at their Broadway musical on Thursday, the members of Green Day played a pair of NYC shows as Foxboro Hot Tubs, their garage rock side-project, at Don Hills (April 23rd) and Bowery Electric (last night, April 25th).
At Don Hills, the band played a set of their Foxboro Hot Tubs songs, including a new one called "It's Fuck Time." They also did Green Day songs "Blood, Sex and Booze" and "St. Jimmy," and covers that included "I Fought the Law" and "A Quick One While He's Away."
Bowery Electric hosts a "secret" show with Devotchka on Tuesday.
Videos from the shows and a set list are below...
Green Day on stage after their musical (via)
The Broadway show "American Idiot" turned into a rock concert with a supercharged encore: a surprise appearance by Green Day, the band that wrote the music.That was last night. Less of a surprise will be the following shows that Green Day themselves are advertising (and as partially posted earlier today in the comments): "Friday, April 23rd - Early show! - 7:00 show Mystic Knights of the Cobras and The Foxboro Hottubs at Don Hills, NYC." and that "The Foxboro Hot Tubs will be performing live in New York on Sunday at Bowery Electric. Tickets are $20 at the door. Due to the massive amount of interest, The Bowery Electric will not allow lineups before 8pm on Sunday. Anyone arriving early will be asked to leave. Doors open at 11pm show starts at 11:30pm." Good luck getting in to those.
The three-man band, and an additional guitarist, took to the stage after Thursday's show as girls in the audience screamed. The show opened Tuesday, and the producers may wish that Green Day would show up regularly.
"This is my first night on Broadway," the singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong declared, then blared out the opening power chords of "American Idiot," the show's title song. In the first verse, he sang: "Can you hear the sound of hysteria? The subliminal mind BEEP America," censoring himself. [NY Times]
NOTE: one commenter says, "foxboro hot tubs is NOT the same as green day. it's the members of green day, but they are an entirely different band. they will NOT be playing green day songs at the concert; they have their own album, etc."
And as some suggested in the comments earlier, Green Day should also play some benefit shows for 924 Gilman when you get back out west.
"The 2010 Lollapalooza line-up is official: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Phoenix will headline, joined by Social Distortion, MGMT, Jimmy Cliff, Hot Chip, and The Black Keys. With 130 bands on this year's bill, its sure to be a weekend long feast for the ears.After extremely accurate early leaks and then much teasing, Lollapalooza oficially announces this year's lineup. Check it out below...
It's a monumental year for Lollapalooza, filled with homecomings, reunions, and first-times. Soundgarden, 1992 and 1996 Lollapalooza alumni, return to the Lollapalooza stage for their first performance since 1997. Green Day will rock Grant Park sixteen years after their first Lollapalooza appearance. While Lady Gaga will headline the festival only three short years after playing the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2007.
Arcade Fire returns to Grant Park, having played the reincarnated Lollapalooza in 2005. This is the first Lollapalooza for The Strokes - and also their first show in four years. And making their Lollapalooza debut: Phoenix." - Lollapalooza
"Just got off the phone with Julian Casablancas and he confirms that the Strokes will indeed be headlining Lollapalooza this summer as first reported here a few weeks ago.The Tribune lists other probable headliners for Lollapalooza, happening Aug. 6-8 in Grant Park, as Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire,Soundgarden, Green Day and Phoenix. Some of those were listed by The Daily Swarm in February. Early Bird tickets to the fest are sold out - regular advance tickets are on the way.
He says he's pretty stoked about the band's string of festival dates this summer. "We're getting the biggest offers of our career," he says. "It feels great, because I remember people writing things like 'We'll see if they're still around in 10 years' when we first came out."
...Casablancas says the Strokes are wrapping up their fourth studio album, and first since 2006. "I think it'll be out in September," he says. "I've written a lot of melodies for it, but the other guys have also contributed a lot more: melodies, choruses, parts. It's way more collaborative. So it'll have a different feel than our other albums." [Chicago Tribune]
The show in Chicago can be added to the Strokes' upcoming gig at Isle of Wight Fest in England this June.
Julian's upcoming tour dates include a show at Irving Plaza in NYC and a March 30th show at Sayreville, NJ's Starland Ballroom.

"Tony Award-winning orchestrator and composer Tom Kitt, whose Next to Normal is playing Broadway, has joined the creative team of the new Green Day musical American Idiot, as music supervisor.Green Day (headliner) and the Kaiser Chiefs (opener) completed their two-night run at Madison Square Garden in NYC last night (7/28). For Green Day it was their second multiple-night visit to the city this year. The first time was in much smaller venues. More pictures and Green Day's setlist from the show, below...

DOWNLOAD: Franz Ferdinand - Katherine Hit Me ("No You Girls" dub version) (MP3)
Franz Ferdinand @ Roseland Ballroom (more by Natasha Ryan)
Blood is a compilation album of dub music versions of songs from Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, the third studio album from British band Franz Ferdinand.Blood is out June 1st via Domino. Check out a stream of "Katherine Hit Me", the whole Blood tracklist, cover art, and Franz Ferdinand's upcoming tour dates with... Green Day, below...
Like Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, Blood is the result of Franz Ferdinand's recording sessions with producer Dan Carey in 2008. It was originally packaged in the deluxe and box-set versions of Tonight: Franz Ferdinand that were available in January 2009 in Europe only. However, the newly packaged version of Blood will be released worldwide and will feature one new song, "Be Afraid", which is a reworked version of "Dream Again". All of the track titles are taken from lyrics from the original songs, with the exception of "Katherine Hit Me" whose title refers to lyrics from both "No You Girls" and "Katherine Kiss Me".

"Green Day continued their march to an inevitable Number One album, setting up rock-opera shop at New York City's Bowery Ballroom on May 18th for the East Coast live debut of 21st Century Breakdown. Their Bay Area guerilla gigs in April all featured the record in its entirety. But at the Bowery, the band played a pocket-jukebox edition of the album, starting with the opening title track and the first single, "Know Your Enemy." Then the new six-piece Green Day -- with singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool assisted on guitars, keyboards and extra vocals by Jason Freese, Jason White and Jeff Matika -- sprinted across the first two acts, concentrating on action-rock tunes such as "East Jesus Nowhere," "Before the Lobotomy" and "Murder City," and finished with nearly all of the third."

Leftover Crack fan in Texas (more)
Leftover Crack, Star Fucking Hipsters, Trash Talk, and The Casualties are playing Irving Plaza on July 3rd. Assuming Irving Plaza doesn't get shut down (unlikely) (or even if it does), this punk show is sure to be a good time. Tickets are on sale.
Less of a good time will probably be had at the punk show happening at Madison Square Garden on July 27th. Tickets for Green Day's big NYC show are on sale (@ 10am). They are also playing a few shows at much smaller venues, and Saturday Night Live this weekend.
The opposite of a good time will probably be had at the same big venue on October 5th. The Ting Tings are playing MSG with Pink. Tickets are on presale (@ 10am). PASSWORD = LEAPFROG
Probably fun, but still kind of lame? Aerosmith and ZZ Top play MSG on September 14th. Tickets are on AmEx and Internet presale now, and go on general sale Monday, May 18th, at 10am. It's the same day Kings of Leon play Nassau Coliseum.
Same venue, same summer (move over Blondie, Pat Benatar and The Donnas): The Pretenders, Cat Power and Juliette (and the Licks) Lewis are playing the Stone Pony's Summerstage on August 9th. Tickets are currently on Ticket Rush presale (password = live), and they go on general sale Saturday at noon. The same three ladies (bands) have an August 22nd Colorado show scheduled, so let's home for a full tour with NYC date too.
And don't forget Kylie Minogue tickets go on sale Saturday at 10am.
