Tickets are on sale (@ noon) for the John Vanderslice (BrooklynVegan Northside Festival show) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Full lineup and Information on how badges will work for this is still forthcoming. (I can say though that a certain number of badge holders will get in to the show which means if you buy a ticket it may be redundant if you also have a badge - it will be a first-come, first-served type thing with badges, while a ticket will guarantee entry - like CMJ, but badges won't be as expensive...)

As previously mentioned, David Byrne was added to the Dark Was the Night Radio City show. All money from the show goes to a good cause. Tickets are still on sale.

BOSTON -- A street artist famous for his red, white and blue "Hope" posters of President Obama has been arrested on warrants accusing him of tagging property with graffiti, police said Saturday.

Shepard Fairey was arrested Friday night on his way to the Institute of Contemporary Art for a kickoff event for his first solo exhibition, called "Supply and Demand."

Two warrants were issued for Fairey on Jan. 24 after police determined he'd tagged property in two locations with graffiti based on the Andre the Giant street art campaign from his early career, Officer James Kenneally said. One of the locations was the railroad trestle by the landmark Boston University bridge over the Charles River, police said.

Fairey, 38, of Los Angeles, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Brighton District Court, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for the Suffolk District Attorney. Wark said Fairey would also be arraigned on a default warrant related to a separate graffiti case in the Roxbury section of Boston. [Huffington Post]

This comes less than a week after the Associated Press sent their lawyers after Shepard for Obama-image copyright infringement.

This not the first time Shepard has been arrested - not even close. That's one of many subjects he talks about in his interview with Henry Rollins that you can watch in the videos below...

"The older I get, the more I enjoy touring and being on stage," said Rollins, 47. "I've tailored my life around the tour. Being off the road is a depressing experience."

Rollins likes being a loner, a fiery outspoken rebel with many causes. Tonight, Rollins will spout off about politics, music and whatever else may come to mind in a nearly three-hour spoken-word performance.... [Baltimore Sun, yesterday]

It's been a long time since I saw a Henry Rollins spoken word show. Last night (April 11, 2007) at the Gramercy Theatre, Henry was even more engaging, funny, and inspring than I remembered.

Henry Rollins @ The Gramercy Theatre

The show is at Gramercy four more nights - not sure if they're all sold out or not. Janeane Garofalo and Marc Maron (VERY FUNNY) also perform - I highly recommend you check it out if you can - especially if you feel yourself needing some reinforcement on why the Bush administration sucks.

Check out Henry's daily journal on his website, and his TV show on IFC. More pics (and a video) below...
