Paul Weller is in town for two shows at the Best Buy Theater tonight (5/18) and Saturday (5/19) to which tickets are still available. Last night, Weller played an invite-only show at the Paul Varvatos store (aka the old CBGBs space) and his 15 or so song set ran his entire career, from Jam classics "Eton Rifles" and "Art School" through songs off Weller's new album, Sonik Kicks.
Weller also stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performed the Jam's "That's Entertainment." You can watch that below, and check out a few more pictures (mostly red carpet) and setlist from the Varvatos show.
Phantogram WITH guitar @ "Rocked" (more by Chris La Putt)
Two stories, both related to the launch of Rocked: An Exclusive Photography Exhibition by Mick Rock... First, Karen O told US Magazine at that party that she "recently wed longtime love Barnaby Clay"...
"I'm a married woman!" the rocker (real name: Karen Lee Orzolek) told Us at Wednesday's launch bash for Rocked: An Exclusive Photography Exhibition by Mick Rock at the W Hotel Downtown in NYC.In more horrible news, Phantogram, who played the party (where all of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were in attendance), were robbed. Yesterday the band wrote on Facebook: "Some scum bag stole Josh's guitars last night. If anyone has any information, please contact us. Love, phantogram." Bummer. Keep an eye out!
The "Maps" singer, 33, sweetly thanked Clay in the program notes for Stop the Virgens, a rock opera she co-created that was performed earlier this fall at St. Ann's Warehouse in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Clay directed his future wife in the 2009 video for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs single "Zero."

Phantogram / Yeah Yeah Yeahs
It was ugly and rainy outside, but that didn't stop the pretty people from heading to the W NY Downtown hotel last night (12/8) to attend a party in honor of the Mick Rock picture exhibition that will be up at the hotel between now and 12/28. Mick Rock was of course in attendance, and there was a "Symmetry Live Performance" (the name of the hotel's performance series) by Phantogram (live) and Mark Ronson (DJ). DJ Cash also provided some tunes while we were there.
We left before Mark Ronson took over, but you can see more pictures of Phantogram (who played a bunch of songs from their new album), their setlist, Mick Rock, members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Zuccotti Park (it's right there), and more, below...
No word yet on whether Iggy Pop will definitely be there, but Mick Rock will take your picture Friday at the Varvatos store, though there's a catch. Second half of the flyer below...
