Weezer Hootenanny Live 105 2008-06-20 (madrubicon)
Weezer

Weezer's Hootenanny Tour rolled into town Saturday at the Vera Project and Ear Candy was fortunate enough to be one of the 200 fans in attendance.

What's the Hootenanny Tour? Well, it involves Weezer playing six acoustic songs, surrounded by 200 fans all singing along while jamming with the band on their own instruments. provided.

To get access to the show, which was hosted by 1077 The End, fans had to apply to be part of the performance by letting the station know what instrument they planned on bringing along. For those who did not bring instruments, maracas, shakers, finger tambourines and kazoos were

This meant for one hour a few hundred people got to be a part of Weezer and take part in a recording session with the band. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the set was recorded for use on a future Weezer CD.... [seattlepi]

One of the songs Weezer was doing at these West coast-only shows was Radiohead's "Creep". Watch the below video, and do it quick before Prince figures out a way to get all songs he covered first removed from YouTube....

Coldplay

KEEPING UP WITH THE RADIOHEADS

"What Radiohead did [releasing the album In Rainbows as a pay-what-you-like download] was great. They had that freedom because they were out of contract. We didn't. I know being on a major label is meant to be antiquated, but we're fine with it. We're trying to keep pace with the idea of free content, though. We gave away [the album's first single] "Violet Hill" with NME and as a free download.

"Next month we're doing free concerts in London, New York and Barcelona. And on the album, tracks five and six are two songs but show up as one, so you can download two songs for the price of one. That was inspired by the 'buy one get one free' promotions at KwikSave, where I once worked."

IS CHRISTY MOORE COOL?

"I always thought that if you were a 16-year-old and liked Coldplay you'd keep it quiet. We aren't cool and never will be. But I hope after this album, 16-year-olds will feel proud to like Coldplay. The best gig I've ever been to was by John Williams, who wrote the music for Jaws and Star Wars. I also love Stevie Wonder and Christy Moore. Are they cool? The best bands in the world today are probably Arcade Fire and Sigur Rós. I think Coldplay is only the seventh best in the world." [Brian Boyd talks to Coldplay's Chris Martin]

Stevie Wonder is very cool. Sigur Rós are currently streaming their whole new album.

Pete Doherty

Last month, Roman Abramovich shelled out £185,000 each for Mercury prizewinners Klaxons and sexy Brazilians CSS to perform at his daughter's birthday. In February, a Californian computer-games tycoon paid £15,000 for an exclusive set in Pete Doherty's own, blood-spattered home. Mind you, the latter may have been miffed to hear that, a few weeks earlier, Doherty had accepted £100 from a regular dad to play at his daughter's birthday party.

"Doherty is a perfect example of how the private-gig market is shifting," says Richard Davies, a former music-industry executive turned internet entrepreneur, whose latest venture aims to make private-party performances from pop stars available to the masses. "At one end of the scale, you have your Dolly Partons and Celine Dions. At the other, which is still in its infancy, are cooler, younger pop and indie acts, who are obviously a lot cheaper." [TimesOnline]

Prince

After word spread that Prince covered Radiohead's "Creep" at the Coachella festival, the tens of thousands who couldn't be there ran to YouTube for a peek. Everyone was quickly denied -- even Radiohead.

All videos of Prince's unique rendition of Radiohead's early hit were quickly taken down, leaving only a message that his label, NPG Records, had removed the clips, claiming a copyright violation. But the posted videos were shot by fans and, obviously, the song isn't Prince's.

In a recent interview, Thom Yorke said he heard about Prince's performance from a text message and thought it was "hilarious." Yorke laughed when his bandmate, guitarist Ed O'Brien, said the blocking had prevented even him from seeing Prince's version of their song.

"Really? He's blocked it?" asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. "Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment." Yorke added, "Well, tell him to unblock it. It's our ... song." [Billboard]

Sonic Youth vs STarbucks

Sonic Youth has finalized the track list for its compilation "Hits Are for Squares," due June 10 exclusively in Starbucks stores in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., as well as online.

In addition to the exclusive Sonic Youth track "Slow Revolution," the limited-edition CD features Sonic Youth songs, handpicked by Radiohead, Chloe Sevigny, Dave Eggers, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Beck, Flea, David Cross and other enthusiasts. Participants have also written about their selections for the liner notes... [Billboard]

Obviously this association with Starbucks is going to piss some people off, but Thurston doesn't care. Check out the tracklist below...

Prince @ the Coachella Music Festival - April 26, 2008
Prince @ Coachella

You are the coolest place on earth right now!" Prince declared to a sea of tens of thousands.

Prince, who had been sought out to perform at Coachella since the festival was founded nine years ago, told the crowd that when he agreed to perform, he informed the organizers that he would not only play, but party too.

True to his word, Prince then launched his band -- complete with a horn section and background singers -- into "Jungle Love." Morris Day came out to sing his song, while Prince strolled around the stage with his guitar.

For the beginning of the show, Prince preferred to let his guitar do the talking. He also welcomed the singer and drummer Sheila E, who took the lead for a song and then joined Prince in an extended jam.

Finally, Prince satisfied the crowd with a celebratory performance of "1999." His classic "Little Red Corvette" soon followed. [AP]

As Conan points out, Radiohead are one of the "most environmentally conscious bands in the world." They just aren't as 'green' as Jack Johnson (or Dave Matthews or Pearl Jam) (according to Billboard)....

Radiohead - Creep

One of the biggest bands in the world, Radiohead, will make an exclusive appearance on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" Wednesday April 23 (12:35-1:35am ET).

The band - who made their network television debut on "Late Night" and were O'Brien's first-ever musical guest in 1993 - has recorded an exclusive live performance from their critically acclaimed and record-industry-paradigm-shifting release "In Rainbows" to air on O'Brien's contribution to NBC's "Green Week" of environmentally conscious programming.

Recorded live in London, Radiohead's performance of "House of Cards," represents an ongoing effort by the socially conscious band to act in the greenest manner possible. By opting to record this exclusive performance rather than fly over for a one-off appearance, the band - as frontman Thom Yorke notes in the introduction to their performance - avoided leaving a carbon footprint equivalent to driving one's car for a solid year.

Other guests on "Late Night's" "Green" show are a bit more literal - "Robot Chicken" creator and actor Seth GREEN and "Today" show travel editor Peter GREENberg.

Grizzly Bear @ Walt Disney Concert Hall, March 1, 2008 (LA Weekly)
Grizzly Bear

Hiro tells me that Radiohead will now announce their August 2008 North American tour dates on Monday, and the rumor is that Grizzly Bear will be opening. That makes sense since Thom Yorke played Grizzly Bear on the radio recently, and Grizzly Bear was just added to All Points West (the only NYC-area stop on Radiohead's tour).

Grizzly Bear is also playing BAM in Brooklyn. Radiohead is also touring North America in May. All known August cities and dates below....

NIN

Hiro writes in....

Now will NIN play 1st night or close out Lollapalooza??? I say this because Radiohead is supposed to play in Indianapolis on Aug 3rd (last night of Lolla) so I would assume Radiohead will be playing the first night of Lolla, leaving NIN to close out the festival....I guess we'll find out when Radiohead announces their 2nd Leg Dates next week....

Entrtainment WeeklyEntrtainment Weekly

Why do we (Entertainment Weekly) love indie rock? Because it shuns everything that is prefab, safe, typical. It's about freedom, expression, passion -- no rules, man! But in order to narrow down hundreds of hours of incredible musical output from the last two and a half decades, we had to apply some...well, rules:....
