Jay Z Beyonce Obama

We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

Jay-Z & Beyonce raised a cool $4M for Barack Obama at their benefit last night ("Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls," Obama said,). Go on and brush your shoulders off, Jigga.

If you bought a ticket to that fundraiser, may we interest you in a live entertainment company?

Meanwhile, the President was on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, chatting about the Mitt Romney "47%" video and other things. Watch it below.

In other money news, Amanda Palmer is now going to pay those previously-volunteer musicians and her new LP debuted at #10 on Billboard.

If you were wondering the #1 album is, it's Dave Matthews Band's Away from the World which beat out Bob Dylan. The xx's Coexist came in at #5, not too bad!

Check out what David Byrne & St. Vincent played last night in Chicago.

Look at pictures from our Jon Spencer Blues Explosion record release party that was last night.

Hope to see you at our Rafiq Batia record release party that Anti-Pop Consortium is also playing.

Check out an excellent profile piece on the legendary Neil Young that appeared in the NY Times Magazine.

Sinead O'Connor wrote to Russian president Vladmir Putin, demanding Pussy Riot's release. Is that helping or hurting?

Deftones are back with "Leathers", the new song from their upcoming Koi No Yokan due on 11/13. Check out that song below in a video stream and/or down load your copy at their site.

Happy Canada Day!

Tonight's free outdoor shows include Jay Reatard at the Stuy Town Oval, Clair Lynch Band and Missy Raines & The New Hip at Madison Square Park, and the formerly-outdoor show with Tift Merritt and Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion which was moved to Stuyvesant High School.

The Celebrate Brooklyn show tonight with MGMT, Kuroma and Suckers at the Prospect Park Bandshell is happening, but, like Gang Gang Dance and TV on the Radio, isn't one of the series' free concerts.

TV Smith won't be at the Mercury Lounge tonight because of visa problems. He is expected to make his Thursday gig at the MHOW with Jay Reatard and Screaming Females though. At the Mercury Lounge you can still catch Fake Problems, Kiss Kiss, Paper and Sand, and Alone at 3am.

Jay Reatard is wearing a Lovvers shirt in that picture up there. Lovvers are visiting the US later this month.

Keith Fullerton Whitman was supposed to play the Issue Project Room. The venue's website reads, "TONIGHT'S CONCERT IS CANCELLED. MANY APOLOGIES."

Original Múm member and Avey Tare collaborator Kria Brekkan will join Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdótir at Sycamore tonight.

Harlem Shakes headline the Bowery Ballroom tonight. See their brand new video, for the song "Strictly Game," below.
