Well, it may not get any cooler (or hotter) than this…

The Bangles who just released a stellar new album called Sweetheart of the Sun (go here and buy it) are going to be in the area for a few club shows:

Monday Night at Highline Ballroom (get tix here)
Wednesday Night at Stone Pony (get tix here)

and your favorite free form radio show has something special planned for each night, you have the chance to hang out with me and the Bangles at their soundcheck and meet them too! WOW!

Here’s the details i will be giving away a handful of passes for this via my radio shows on sunday night, and it will go down like this:

Sometime Sunday night between 9pm and 11pm on 107.1 The Peak (stream at or via the tune in app on your phone) I will play a brand new Bangles track, when you hear it, send a direct message to me on Facebook (click here) and put in the header “BANGLES HIGHLINE” or “BANGLES PONY” we will randomly choose 5 winners per show. Each winner gets to bring a guest! Any entries recieved before i play the song will be deleted and any recieved 15 minutes after i play the song will be deleted.

Also i will do the same thing between 11pm and 1am on 105.5 WDHA (stream at or via the tune in app on your phone) same rules as above.

For the Highline show you need to be at the venue at 5pm, for the Stone Pony it’s 6pm.

Good luck! Hope to see you there!

No purchase necessary, no cash value, non transferable. each package includes access to the meet and greet and currently not tix to the show. This may change by sunday night, listen to the peak or dha during my show for more info

The Flaming Lips To Encase 24 Hour-Long Song In A Human Skull

Yes. You did not misread that. According to Pitchfork:

Following the release of their charitable six-hour song, the Flaming Lips will record a 24-hour track and encase five of the recordings (which will be placed on hard drives) in human skulls, reports O Music Awards. Frontman Wayne Coyne says the song is a work-in-progress, but that “it’s a song about death and it’s a song about fucking and it’s a song about life.” As far as procuring the skulls, Coyne mentions a local Oklahoma City institution: “There’s a place in town that’s called Skulls Unlimited that’s been here for almost as long as the Flaming Lips have been here, and it sells human skulls.” Appropriately, the track’s scheduled for release at midnight on Halloween.

First the gummy skulls, then gummy fetus’, NOW human skulls and a 24 hour song? This is all well and good, but WHEN ARE WE GETTING A NEW ALBUM, COYNE?

Radiohead To Maybe Perform At #OccupyWallStreet Rally?

It’s pretty up in the air at zero-hour over here.

According to Gothamist:

Earlier today, it was rumored that Radiohead would be playing for protesters at Occupy Wall Street at 4 p.m. this afternoon. Then it was confirmed! Then it was denied by Radiohead’s management. But THEN, spokespersons for the Occupy Wall Street protesters and MoveOn both told us it was really happening. And then some people handed out cough drops. So in conclusion, no one really knows what’s going to happen in the next hour or so.

Check the live stream below to keep on top of this and see all the action (or lackthereof) involved with this Radiohead story.

Watch The Foo Fighters Cover Pink Floyd With Roger Waters

Last night, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon continued its week-long celebration of Pink Floyd by having the Foo Fighters cover “In The Flesh?” with the added bonus of Roger Waters singing lead.

Fallon‘s week-long tribute to Floyd continues Wednesday, when MGMT will cover “Lucifer Sam,” off The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Country star Dierks Bentley will perform the title track from Wish You Were Here on Thursday, and Pearl Jam will close out the week Friday with The Wall‘s “Mother.” Pink Floyd kicked off a massive reissues series this week with a six-disc box set edition of The Dark Side of the Moon.

Mick Jagger To Star As Media Mogul In New Film

Could it be a star-turn for Mick Jagger?

That’s what him and his production company, Jagged Films, are banking on.

According to Rolling Stone:

Mick Jagger may play a media mogul in Tabloid, a new film he is developing through his Jagged Films production company. The movie, which is being penned by A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson based on an idea by Jagger, will tell the story of a Rupert Murdoch-like mogul and a young journalist who is brought into the inner circle of his immoral media empire.

Wow, that’s actually some pretty legit screenwriting credit there. Hopefully this will make Mick Jagger the superstar he always wanted to be.

This Year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees Have Been Announced

The new nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame are out and some usual suspects and a couple of rap wildcards are now in the mix.

According to Spin:

Hard-rock icons Guns N’ Roses are among this year’s batch of first-time nominees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot, along with goth-pop forefathers the Cure and hip-hop pioneers Eric B. & Rakim, the organization announced today. Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Heart also lead the list of first-timers.

Also receiving their first Rock Hall nods are the Small Faces/Faces, the Spinners, Rufus with Chaka Khan, and Freddie King. Also on the ballot are returning nominees Donna Summer, Donovan, Laura Nyro, and War. The winners will be inducted at the ceremony April 14 in Cleveland. The event will be open to the public.

Now just because these bands are nominated doesn’t mean they’ll win. Some would even argue that NOT being in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame gives you more cred (as the kids say).

Just look at Iggy Pop:

Watch Radiohead On The Colbert Report

Last night, media gadfly and television host Stephen Colbert played host to the band Radiohead; making a big spectacle and joke of the fact that they have jumped off the corporate grid these past few years by showing copious plugs for Dr. Pepper, touting it as “The official softdrink of Radiohead.”

The whole gang had a good laugh about it and went on to perform a few songs and talk about global warming.

Catch two clips below and click here to see the entire episode.

Pearl Jam “Twenty” DVD Release Set For October

Pearl Jam fans who thought they were going to have to just settle for a quaint album of Eddie Vedder Ukulele tunes, you’d be wrong.

Pearl Jam’s Cameron Crowe-directed documentary, Pearl Jam Twenty… will be available as a three-disc DVD/Blu-ray set [on October 25th], featuring the final version of the film, along with an alternate version and loads of bonus footage.


Wow, Pearl Jam sure is getting the royal treatment with this set. I mean, any film whose trailer kickstarts with an awkward David Lynch interview MUST be worth it:
