Big news lately is the random Conor Oberst show that was very quietly posted over at One Percent Productions’ site. Get your tickets to this one soon, kids, because it’s going to sell out fast.
One Percent bills it as a holiday show. Don’t know if that just means it will involve Conor singing Christmas songs (he did “Blue Christmas” with his dad at a show a few years ago) or what. Either way, it will prove to be a cool show at an intimate venue.
Onto some other headlines!
o Local fellas Little Brazil put up some live footage from their tour.
o Local group Anniversaire put up a bunch of live photos. They’re playing Nov. 14 at the Waiting Room with a bunch of other folks.
o Kanye West gave a shout out to Land of Talk’s video for “It’s Okay” over at his blog.
o Yesterday, I mentioned Paste’s list of 50 best albums of the decade. They have also posted the 50 best movies. (In case you’re wondering, I think I’d have about the same to say about this list as I would the 50 albums list.)
o If you’re like me, when you hear the song “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel, you can’t help but think of “Say Anything” and it’s protagonist, Lloyd Dobler. Well over the weekend, some Lloyds got together and held their blaring stereos over their heads.
o Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Live came out on DVD today.
o A website is selling Beatles tracks (which you probably know aren’t available for digital download anywhere), but it’s probably not authorized to do so.
o I think I mentioned this once before, but Daniel Johnston has a game app for the iPhone. Blender takes a look at his and others’.
o Spin gets “inside” the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack. I have no idea what that means.
o Ever played an absolutely terrible video game, but noticed that the soundtrack was completely bitchin’? I have. Here are seven of them.
o A bunch of new discs are out today, including Nirvana reissue and Weezer’s disc, “Raditude,” plus a whole bunch more.
Today’s Mail: Sinatra: New York, a four-CD, one-DVD set of live Sinatra shows. Hell yeah.
