The Pipettes are playing Highline Ballroom in NYC on June 5th. Tickets are on sale. Daniel Johnston's May 16th show at the Highline Ballroom is sold out, but tickets are now on sale for a second show on May 15th at Warsaw in Brooklyn.

Last time the Pipettes were visiting the States, they got to meet Perez Hilton.

According to a news item on their website, the Pipettes were very honored to be written about by Perez:

Also were honored with a mention on PerezHilton.com! [The Pipettes' official website]

...though their MySpace blog entry is a little more cynical:

The girls met Perez Hilton, whom I've heard a lot about, though I think the girls were less overwhelmed by his presence than our manager and tour manager, he seemed a really cool guy though, great pink hair. [The Pipettes' MySpace]

I wonder if Perez would ever want to hang out with Daniel Johnston.

They could talk about if Daniel meant what he said or not.
