To celebrate the release of their unique "visual album" DVD project ODDSAC (Plexifilm), Animal Collective's Avey Tare and director Danny Perez will join moderator Andy Battaglia in a discussion about how they see and hear--and work to blur the boundaries between the two.
Spoon plays early and late.
Jay-Z and Eminem play their first of two shows at the new Yankee Stadium tonight.
The VMAs happened Sunday. The Black Keys won for "Breakthrough Video" and pretty much everything else went to Lady Gaga (Eminem and Jay-Z got some too). Robyn was there. Video of her on the red carpet below...
Kanye @ SXSW 2009 (more by Faith-Ann Young)
Critics may have hated it, but Monday's premiere of "The Jay Leno Show" got a warm reception from viewers.That widespread scorn even reached President Obama who was taped calling Kanye West a jackass.
Thanks in part to a newsworthy appearance from rapper Kanye West -- who drew widespread scorn for his behavior during the MTV Video Music Awards the previous night -- the former "Tonight Show" host's 10 p.m. comedy-variety show drew a surprisingly large crowd of 18.4 million total viewers, according to data from Nielsen Media Research. That's more than three times what he averaged on "The Tonight Show."
Among the key demographic of viewers aged 18 to 49, "Leno" scored a 5.3 rating/14 share, easily the night's top-rated program. It was NBC's most-watched program in the time period since last year's Summer Olympics. [LA Times]
Meanwhile, as Kanye promised a few weeks ago, he's going out on tour with Lady Gaga who was also a big star at the VMAs. The'Fame Kills' tour runs from November into January 2010, and includes two (for now?) NYC-area shows: December 22 at the Izod Center and January 3 at Nassau Coliseum. Ticket info TBA. All tour dates, and videos from the Leno show, are below...

Videos of Kanye (who joins Jay-Z and Rhianna on the new Leno show's debut tonight) (and who played with the same two people at MSG on Friday night), Beyonce, Lady Gaga and more below...
MTV.com is now streaming the VMAs in their entirety, so if you missed them like me, now you can see Britney Spears' awkward return to lip syncing followed by Sarah Silverman making fun of her, a Kanye West performance, Foo Fighters, Mark Ronson, Miss Teen USA South Carolina (was that a diss on vegans?), etc...
