Tim Fite

Like he did last year, Tim Fite is giving away an awesome and free Halloween-themed EP on his website. Don't wait to grab it though. After today it will be gone (until next year at least because this year he is offering last year's again too).

Fite says ³I will be handing out more candy on Halloween this year, and all the bad kids are excited!!!²

..This year Fite is adding a few more songs to his costume clad repertoire in the form of a brand new EP ding-dong, Ditch!!! - a bone crunching examination of the less savory rituals of Hallows Eve. If you have ever hurled an egg at a neighbor, stolen candy from a baby, dug a shallow grave, or been disappointed by a box of raisins ding-dong, Ditch!!! is the soundtrack for your Halloween mischief!

If you're in Philadelphia you can catch Tim Fite opening for Man Man at Starlight Ballroom tonight (Halloween). If you're in Texas, Tim, like many others will be performing at the Fun Fun Fun Fest next week. If you're in NYC, Tim is opening for the Constantines at Music Hall of Williamsburg in December. All dates below....

MGMT @ Lollapalooza

MGMT recently
* got really big really fast
* played a MINI show on a NYC roof
* played a Prps denim party at Highline Ballroom
* didn't play a SoCo show in Albany due to an injury

Soulwax recently remixed MGMT. Get the MP3 HERE.

One of the music stories of the summer was, like it or not, that MGMT drew huge crowds almost everywhere they played. Lollapalooza was one of those places. The (not yet posted) pictures in this post are from that performance.

MGMT start a tour with Beck later this month and play two shows with him in NYC on October 9th and 10th. Later that month they'll play two soon-to-be-announced NYC shows of their own. All dates (and more pics) below...

DOWNLOAD: Daft Punk - Human After All (Justice Remix) (MP3)


Daft Punk

I'm sure you already know that Daft Punk recorded their 1st show on this latest string of live dates at the Paris Bercy back in June. I'm also sure that you know that Daft Punk just released this recording as Daft Punk Alive. What you might not have known (if you didn't read the live webchat on Wednesday) is that the INSANE (TOGETHER!) mashup that DP play as their encore is not included on Alive. It is available on the deluxe edition which is $15.99 here. And to celebrate....

An All Night Dance Party with Faux Punk: A Daft Punk Cover DJ Crew
+ David Bruno (Slap You in Public) + giveaways & prizes
Friday, December 7, 2007, 10pm Doors - 18+

Celebrate the release of Daft Punk's Alive 2007 lp at Brooklyn's Studio B on Friday, December 7, 2007. The all night dance party will feature an extended set from Faux Punk, the world's best/worst/only Daft Punk cover dj crew, whom will spin Daft Punk music, remixes and surprises throughout the evening. There will also be tons of Daft Punk giveaways and prizes to be won!

Note: I'm not in Faux Punk and I won't play a single Daft Punk track, but I'll (David Bruno) definitely be doing a special set for this party and it will be mental.

CONTEST 1: The robots in Faux Punk have granted us the power to award 2 pairs of tickets to the release party. Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: PUNK) with your name. Two randomly selected names will be selected Thursday December 6th.

CONTEST 2: The rad doods from Fixed (JDH + DAVE P) have given us two pairs of tickets to the next edition of Fixed with Tiefschwarz on Saturday December 8th at Studio B. Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: FIXED) with your name for that random drawing. Same deal, Thursday winners will be emailed.

TiefschwarzTiefschwarz are two brothers from Germany that have been making house music since they were born. I first heard of them when they were putting out sublime deep house cuts around 1997 or 1998. Around 2002 - 2003, their sound turned a bit bigger, more electrofied, slightly insane, and clubby. They blew up. They also most likely influenced a lot of the crunchier music you are hearing in clubs these days (and your sweethearts Justice). You have no doubt caught drift of their remixes for Goldfrapp, The Rapture, Depeche Mode, Kelis, Freform Five, and their own massive tracks including "Warning Siren" with Mattie Safer from the Rapture on vocals. Party starting is not something Ali and Basti are opposed to... -David

Daft Punk

Tickets are also on sale for two screenings of Daft Punk's film Electroma at Music Hall on December 22nd (you may have seen it already in August). The NYC shows are part of a movie tour. All dates, the trailer and a lot more pictures of people dressed like Daft Punk, below....

I have to finish what I started, and I guess that would be compiling the world's biggest collection of people dressed as Amy Winehouse for Halloween. I was already up to 92 pictures. By the end of this post you'll have seen another 166. Some are great, and more than a few paired Amy with her boyfriend Blake Fielder-Civil. This photo falls into both of those categories....

Amy Winehouse

Even more looked less like Amy, and then there were many Amys that decided to hang out with Pete Doherty instead of Blake - a pairing that makes a lot of sense from the English musician drug addict tabloid point of view. This picture falls into both of those categories....

Pete Doggerty & Amy Doghouse
Amy Winehouse

In related news,

After Amy Wino's hideous performance at the MTV Europe Awards last night, she was booed when she accepted an award for Artists' Choice. Pete Doherty immediately came to her defense.

He was asked what advice he would give Wino, "I wouldn't give her any. She's fine. It's all bollocks. People should leave her alone. I went for a drink with her earlier today and she's totally fine. Perfectly healthy and happy.
"People are saying she's out of control, but she's not. She's a sensible girl and she knows what she's doing. She ain't doing nothing wrong." [dlisted]
Then there was Amy with Lily Allen...

Amy Winehouse

and even Amy with M.I.A....

Amy Winehouse

Now we'll get to more Amy's in a second, but first: To answer my own question, "no", Amy is no longer playing the MTVu Woody Awards or Saturday Night Live due to visa issues. Oh well - not a big loss considering how scary her last live appearance was. That video, and a zillion more Amy impersonators, below.....

Morrissey's band dressed down for Halloween - Oct 31, 2007 (CRED)

I have nothing but love for Morrissey. That said, this quote is kind of funny...

...And while Morrissey has tended to stay off the road for long periods, the upcoming break will last only a few months, given the high demand to see the man in person.
"He'll be back out in January," Mercuriadis says. "We'll take a short break and then start again in March." [Billboard]
* lots of fun Morrissey stuff

So many big indie rock choices to choose from tonight (with now one less than there was) - not good considering I feel like I should not leave home for at least another day or two.

The Sex Pistols embarrassed punk rock on Leno. Then they did it again on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (kind of boring and horrible) Video below. What else?

Arcade Fire - Oct 31, 2007
Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire's Win Butler was hit in the face by a bottle during last night's (October 31) gig in Nottingham. The band, who were dressed in Halloween costumes (pictured), were playing 'Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)' when he got hit. Butler changed the lyrics to: "Where'd you go? / No seriously/ Where'd you go you fucker?"

The band went off stage and returned for a performance of 'Rebellion (Lies)' and, according to a witness, "someone threw something again". Butler stopped playing for a second time and told the audience: "We''ll never play Nottingham again" before continuing with the song. [NME]

only one cardinal (CRED)
Ryan Adams & The Cardinal

In spite of a supremely generous set length (3+ hours and roughly thirty songs), I left last night's Ryan Adams show sorely disappointed. In fact, out of the near-dozen times I've seen Ryan over the past few years, I would easily place this gig at the bottom of the list. I'm not certain if it was a lack of energy, the reinterpreted versions of Ryan's older tunes and/or a general longing for Ryan's incomparable stage banter, but something seemed slightly off.
