Little Women are a twisted, beyond-energetic jazz quartet that’s putting their first full-length, Throat, out April 13th on Aum Fidelity. (((unartig))) recently put together a video retrospective on the group. They play Death By Audio tonight with Ryan Power, Buke and Gass and Sam Mickens.

“The sound awards usually go to the loudest movies, which mean “Avatar” or “The Hurt Locker” this year. “Avatar” may have the edge because this category favors blockbusters like past winners “The Dark Knight” and “King Kong.” But I’m betting on “Hurt Locker” here for two reasons. There’s a lot of love for this film and voters will want to spread it around. Secondly, it probably strikes voters as the loudest film because it’s about bombs going off (or not going off). Recent winner in this category was another war movie up for best picture, “Letters From Iwo Jima.”” [LA Times]

RJD2 hits Highline Ballroom tonight. While in Philly he was interviewed by Joe Walker of Breakfast at Sulimay’s. Check that out below…
