Morrissey cancelled his appearance on Kimmel last night, but apparently he still tuned in. Here's what he thought:
I was disappointed with last night's Jimmy Kimmel Show wherein our smiling host managed to ridicule depression (70% of Americans have experienced depression according to the National Institute of Mental Health). He then found time to ridicule healthy eating (the obesity epidemic in the U.S. costs $147 billion per year in medical expenditure), and he also ridiculed the notion that animals should be entitled to the possession of their own lives. Furthermore, he found time to jokingly promote gun-ownership - hugely amusing for the parents at Sandy Hook, no doubt. He also promoted his special guests Duck Dynasty - who kill beings for fun. None of the above issues are, of course, as important as Jimmy Kimmel himself, who has finally revealed his show to have an overwhelming loss of meaning. Tune in and relive the intellectual fog of the 1950s.Catch Morrissey on his rescheduled tour.

Die Antwoord @ MHOW - July 25, 2010
Last time Die Antwoord came to town was in July. They opened for MIA at one big show (HARD FEST), and headlined one of their own (MHOW). When I heard that they just added a last minute October 29th show at Gramercy Theatre in NYC (ON SALE NOW), I assumed they were doing the same since I knew they were scheduled to open one of Deadmau5's three shows at Roseland Ballroom this week, BUT it's actually a venue change. Die Antwoord are no longer opening at Roseland "due to production needs". That's good news for non-Deadmau5 fans since now Die Antwoord's one and only show is as a headliner. They are also the only band playing Gramercy Theatre Friday night (no opener of their own)
Want to go (it's this Friday!)? I have THREE PAIRS of tickets to giveaway. Details on how to win them at the bottom of this post.
What are the pictures in this post? They are an unpublshed set from the Music Hall show that I've been saving for a special occasion like this, and you can see the rest of them, along with video from their recent appearance on Kimmel, their new NSFW video for "Evil Boy", and all dates, below...

The xx @ Austin City Limits 2010
"Let's put it this way. If you ever want to get into someone's pants, there's no need for red roses or pick-up-lines. Totally unnecessary. All you really need to woo your love-to-be are the sweet, melodic verses of The xx.The xx played United Palace Theater in NYC with Zola Jesus and Warpaint all the way back on Saturday, October 2nd. It was a perfect venue choice for the soft-spoken band says most reports. Exactly one week later, this past Saturday, they played outdoors at the Austin City Limits festival (not an ideal venue says most reports). The pictures in this post are from that Texas show.
At first, taking the A train all the way up to the Bronx sounded like a less than ideal situation, but one must sacrifice distance for the love of music. Church by day and music venue by night, United Palace is a beautifully bipolar theater with acoustics that could put Carnegie Hall to shame. This venue was a perfect match for a band that has meticulously mastered the art of producing huge sounds from whispers. Going from the Mercury Lounge to United Palace, The xx have had quite the year, and this show was a testament to this." [The Wild Honey Pie]
At United Palace, and probably at other shows on the tour, the Mercury Prize-winning band covered Robin S's now-classic dancefloor hit "Show Me Love" (Robin S is not to be confused with Robyn who is currently causing people to tear up dancefloors). Video proof from the NYC show, with the video from their appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night (10/11), and more ACL pictures, below...
Joanna Newsom on Kimmel last night
"Arcade Fire will appear on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart tonight [August 12th]. They'll perform "Ready to Start" from their new album The Suburbs which is currently the # 1 record in the country!Speaking of the Merge store, Arcade Fire weren't the only Merge band that just released an album. As pointed out before, Versus also have a new album and they'll be celebrating at the intimate Rock Shop tonight (8/12). Go see the show and set your DVR for the Arcade Fire segment. All Versus dates below.

Speaking of TV appearances and my favorite artists of 2004, Joanna Newsom was on Kimmel last night. Two videos from that appearance, below...
Public Image Ltd gave us a taste last night of what to expect on their semi-reunion tour that kicks off with a pre-Coachella show at Club Nokia in LA on April 13th. In what was their "first television performance in 18 years", the John Lydon-led group performed "This is Not a Love Song" and "Rise" on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Videos of both songs and updated tour dates below...

Depeche Mode - Hollywood & Vine - April 23, 2009 (charlie.salazar)
Depeche Mode's new album Sounds of the Universe dropped on April 21st.
On Thursday, April 23rd (late last night on the East Coast), the band played a big outdoor show in LA for Jimmy Kimmel Live...
[The band] drew more than 12,000 people to Los Angeles' famed corner of Hollywood and Vine, the largest crowd gathered there since the show first launched in 2003 with a performance by Coldplay. The band played seven songs in just under 45 minutes, including "Wrong," the first single off their latest album, Sounds Of The Universe, along with fan favorites "Personal Jesus," "Enjoy The Silence" and the set's closing number "Never Let Me Down Again," during which singer Dave Gahan led a sea of Depeche devotees to reach for the sky before humbly bro-hugging his right-hand man of nearly 30 years, Martin Gore. [Rolling Stone]Depeche Mode have a North American tour with Peter Bjorn and John scheduled for this summer. That includes a pair of Madison Square Garden shows on August 3rd and 4th. The band is also headlining Lollapalooza in August.
Videos, official and unofficial, from the LA show, below...

"Last weekend I went to see The Bird and The Bee, and it was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. If you ever have the chance to catch them, don't miss it! I've played them a couple times in my podcasts, but Inara George and Greg Kurstin really put something special into their live performances.The Bird and the Bee played two NYC nights in a row on Friday and Saturday, first at Brooklyn rock club The Bell House, and then at the much fancier Manhattan establishment, Carnegie Hall. Chris La Putt was at both. The pictures below prove it...
The show I saw was at Zankel Hall, which is part of Carnegie Hall and just as beautiful as the main stage. The duo played several tunes from their latest album, Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future, which was OK by me, since that record is full of winners like the crazy-catchy Love Letter to Japan."

In late January the guard post at the top of the stairs in the Kimmel Center was eliminated.Just a few weeks after the NYU students refused to get out of the Kimmel Center cafeteria, Marnie Stern, Ra Ra Riot, A Place To Bury Strangers and Apache Beat shared a bill at a concert in the same building. Here are pictures of two of the bands that played the show last night (3/5)....
But now, only a short month later, the guard is back because of the recent protest by Take Back NYU.
The NYU Department of Public Safety has reinstated the guard at Kimmel -- as well as an additional guard on the 12th floor of Bobst Library -- in order to increase security after the protests.
"These stop-gap measures were taken out of prudence and caution following ... [the] events at Kimmel," said Jules Martin, NYU's vice president of Public Safety. [NYU Washington Square News]

I'm always fighting with people about The Kooks. I don't like them, but a lot of other people seem to (especially photographers). Bao likes them. Kyle (who took the pictures this time) likes them. Chris Graham wanted to see them at Sasquatch, and apparently two nights worth of approximately-3000-capacity Terminal 5 people wanted to see them this week in NYC too. Last night they played Terminal 5 with The Morning Benders (June 10, 2008). Tonight both bands do the same. More pics from last night below....

Coldplay played Kimmel. Videos below....
Sound seepage is a common problem at Coachella and Glen Hansard found himself in the thick of it when he started the Swell Season's outdoor stage set solo with just an acoustic guitar. Rock from the mainstage and beats from the tents gave him pause.The Swell Season are currently on tour and will play Radio City Music Hall in NYC on May 19th. It was also just announced that they're playing the Baltimore Virgin Festival in August. Right before Coachella they played Jimmy Kimmel. Videos from that and Coachella (and the latest tour dates) below.....
"How to be louder than the Raconteurs? You turn it up," he said midsong, and indeed the PA was boosted a good 20-30% louder. Thrilled when Jack White and company finished, he half joked " now all we've got to worry about is Aphex Twin."
Not only did Hansard, who won the best song Oscar this year with his partner Marketa Irglova, handle it all in stride, he turned the Swell Season set into a Coachella celebration. He recruited the National's drummer Bryan Devendorf and played covers of other acts' songs: in honor of meeting Kim Deal, she was here with the Breeders, Hansard and Irglova dueted on the Pixies "Cactus," and with the full band did an impressive version of Kraftwerk's "Model."
