It's been a while since we last heard from Adam Green. Turns out he's been working on an adaptation of Aladdin that will be both a film and a album. Say Green:
With Aladdin, I wanted to create a single and unified experience to showcase my music, art and writing...I approached the script like it was a song. It has been the creative journey of a lifetime, and I'm so excited to put this out!The film features handmade paper-máche sets, with more than 500 props and 30 rooms constructed out of phone books, newspapers, glue, and house-paint. Adam also tells Q Magazine that "the lamp is a 3D printer that prints out an analogue version of the internet, and the planet gets a sex change - it's not your Uncle Grandma's Aladdin."
The film's cast includes Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black), Macaulay Culkin (who continues to work with Moldy Peaches members), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), Har Mar Superstar, Devendra Banhart, Zoe Kravitz and more. No release date for Adam Green's Aladdin has been set yet, but you can check out a trailer for the film below.
Green also promises a "worldwide Aladdin Tour concurrent with the film and album's release in Spring 2016." Stay tuned.

It's Christmas time, and if you're anything like me that means you're gonna watch Home Alone and Home Alone 2 at least once this month (maybe you already have). But this year you get a new version you've never seen before. Macaulay Culkin reprises his role as Kevin McCallister as an adult in the debut episode of web series DRYVRS. The video's co-star and the series creator is Jack Dishel of The Moldy Peaches (and Regina Spektor's husband), and you may remember that Moldy Peaches member Toby Goodshank is sometimes a member of Macaulay's band Pizza Underground.
The series "stars Jack as an on-demand car service passenger and chronicles the strange drivers he encounters." Kevin McCallister's his driver, and after Jack tells him it was "ice cold" that he ignored a call from his mom, Kevin gets set off. The whole thing is way more hilarious than it needed to be. Check it out below.

Stones Fest 2012, a tribute to the Rolling Stones similar to Petty Fest and Dylan Fest, is going down on February 22 at Webster Hall. Billed as "A Night To Get Drunk And Celebrate The Music Of The Rolling Stones," the fest will feature appearances by most of the same people who usually play these events, Norah Jones, Adam Green, Jesse Malin, Nicole Atkins, Jason Sudeikis (of SNL), Jessie Baylin, Tad Kubler (of The Hold Steady), The Sheepdogs, Jon Herrington (of Steely Dan), Jody Porter (of Fountains of Wayne, Sammy James Jr. (of the Mooney Suzuki), Jack Dishel (of Only Son), Todd Youth, Alec Higins (of Alberta Cross), Danny Clinch and the Tangiers Blues Band, Steve Schiltz (of Hurricane Bells/Longwave), Justin Long, Antony Ellis (of 5 O'Clock Heros), Jason Roberts, Petter Ericson Stakee, The Uptown Horns, and many more surprise guests.

The show happens about three weeks before a different Stones tribute happening on March 13 at Carnegie Hall with The Mountain Goats, Glen Hansard, TV on the Radio, and others. Tickets for that show are still on sale.
Speaking of Norah Jones, she's set to release her Danger Mouse-produced LP, Little Broken Hearts, sometime this year and follow it with a tour. Norah Jones and Danger Mouse previously collaborated on 2011's Rome. Check out an acoustic performance of the song "Black" from that album below (via Rolling Stone).
Petty Fest is returning to NYC this October, though unlike previous years, this year there will be "Two Nights To Get Drunk And Celebrate The Songs Of Tom Petty." The fest is taking place October 5 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and October 6 at Bowery Ballroom. The fest is (almost) the same lineup of musicians that usually get together for things like this, like Norah Jones, Nicole Atkins, Jesse Malin, Sammy James Jr. (The Mooney Suzuki), Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne), Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady, Josh Lattanzi of The Lemonheads, and others. Interesting additions inclue Har Mar Superstar and Jonny Corndawg. I hope they do a duet. And of course there will be "surprise guests". Tickets for both nights go on sale Thursday (9/1) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (8/31) at noon. $2 from each ticket will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
Jonny Corndawg meanwhile will also be in NYC TONIGHT (8/30) for his record release show at Union Pool.

As promised Adam Green showed up to sing a tune with Dufus (Seth Faergolzia and band) at Cake Shop on Saturday night, but he wasn't alone. Fellow Moldy Peach Jack Dishel also sang, and so did two other members of the defunct anti-folk band: Brent Cole and Toby Goodshank, who both also play in one of the opening bands, Berth Control. Kimya Dawson, who now spends most of her time on the other coast, was not in the house, but Regina Spektor was and she also sang a song as you can see in the pictures (it was two nights before she headlined a benefit for Daniel Cho at MHOW).
Olice Juice Music points out:
"3/4 of the way through the Dufus show [Saturday] night the fire alarm at Cakeshop got tripped (rumor has it due to some suspect smoke inhalating). Everyone had to evacuate the building while the fire department came and reset the alarm. But this could not stop the show! The band took it to the streets and proceeded to perform it's appropriately entitled song Fireman. Luckily, it was just a brief intermission for this, truly epic, nearly 3 hour last Dufus performance."You can see the street scene in the pictures too, and luckily someone grabbed the fireman incident on video, real fireman pulling up included. You can watch it, with two other videos and more pictures from the show, below...
