Miley Cyrus banned from the Dominican Republic
Aug 22, 2014 3:18am | Fact Magazine

Miley Cyrus has been banned from performing in the Dominican Republic.

The Bangerz singer, whose live shows usually involve some combination of inflatable genitalia, weed promotion, twerking midgets and a lot of flesh, was scheduled to perform at Santo Domingos Estadio Quisqueya on September 19.

However, due to Cyrus’s performances “undertak[ing] acts that go against morals and customs which are punishable by Dominican law”, the show has been cancelled.

Cyrus was recently bootlegged by Fade to Mind’s Prince Will – you can download that here.



What's going on Friday? (Arcade FIre, X, OFF!, Kevin Morby, The Clean, Sidekicks, Earthless, Oddball Comedy & more)

Arcade Fire in Austin in April (more by Tim Griffin)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Arcade Fire, The Unicorns, Dan Deacon @ Barclays Center
Arcade Fire's massive Reflektor tour finally rolls into NYC tonight, for its first of three huge arena shows at Barclays Center. What New York-centric songs will they cover? What bobblehead celebrities will make an appearance? These shows are also doubly special because they're three of the VERY few reunion dates for fellow Canadian indie faves the Unicorns. And night three (Sunday) will be triply special with NYC punk legends Television.

X @ City Winery
LA legends X will be performing their first four albums in full over a four-night stand at City Winery. Tonight is their classic second album, Wild Gift. Sold out.

OFF!, Bad Antics, Gay Kiss @ Europa
Keith Morris' classic-hardcore-style supergroup OFF! are unfortunately without their regular drummer for this tour, but they didn't get just anybody to replace him. Dale Crover of the Melvins will be sitting behind the kit tonight, so this should be a cool one to catch.

Kevin Morby, Steve Gunn, Daniel Bachmann, Weyes Blood @ Baby's All Right
Guitar-slinger Steve Gunn, who you may have seen play with Kurt Vile's band, will release his new album, Way Out Weather, on October 7 v...



Scott Weiland says he isn't in jail for meth, no matter what TMZ says. UPDATE: TMZ says guy in jail is actually Weiland impersonator
Aug 21, 2014 11:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan

The above screenshot comes from Scott Weiland's Facebook page where he posted a video saying he is not in jail for meth, but actually in an LA studio recording with his bandmates. This was in reaction to TMZ who still insists that Scott is in fact in jail. TMZ says:

Weiland just posted a video to Facebook saying he's NOT in jail. He appears to be in an L.A. recording studio. But there's a bit of a twist ...

We just spoke to a rep for the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. who tells us, "He is definitely in custody. We did a physical check on that inmate and he is currently in custody."

And ... the Beverly Hills Police Dept. gave us a written statement titled, "Celebrity Arrest," and in the statement it says, "The suspect, former Stone Temple Pilots band member Scott Weiland (46 years of age), was taken into custody for burglary and possession of a controlled substance."

Stay tuned ...

TMZ's initial claim is that Scott has been in jail for four weeks for stealing razors and meth possession... The PiLOT thickens.

UPDATE: TMZ admits their mistake with this update:

L.A. County Sheriffs are now confirming the famous Scott Weiland is NOT in custody ... and have launched an investigation to find out who exactly they have locked up.

This story is unbelievable -- Sheriffs tell us they believe a Scott Weiland impersonator is currently behind bars ... and claim he looks identical to the singer ....


Miley Cyrus banned from performing in Dominican Republic

From the green-studded weed suit to the inflatable penis to the never-ending twerks, Miley Cyrus has generated quite a bit of controversy with her Bangerz tour. But now all the headline-grabbing behavior has reached critical mass, as the Dominican Republic commission that oversees public performances has apparently gotten wind of Cyrus’ onstage antics and decided they don’t want any of it in their country. Yes, Miley Cyrus has been banned from performing in the Dominican Republic.

The pop singer was to set to play Santo Domingo’s Estadio Quisqueya on September 19th; tickets, ranging from $27 to $370 dollars in price, have been on sale since July. However, because Cyrus “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law,” the commission has decided to cancel the concert outright.

Cyrus, who recently finished touring with fellow controversial pop star Lily Allen, has a handful of other South American tour dates before she heads overseas to Australia. Find her full itinerary here.



Listen: James Blake debuts new song 200 Press

This evening, James Blake took to the BBC Radio 1 airwaves for his weekly Thursday night residency. As hes done several times in the past few months, the super crooner used to opportunity to debut a brand new song.

According to Blake, the song is called “200 Press” because “only 200 are going to be pressed up.” Silly title aside, the track is by far one of Blakes more menacing pieces, built of robot-meets-demon vocals, clangy bits of percussion, busted Casio tones, and a medley of random studio junk. Blake has said his next LP would take his sound “downwards,” and Id say to the pits of House music hell is about as low as you can go.

Listen to Blakes full broadcast on BBC Radio 1s website; the new song starts at the 31:00 mark.

“200 Press” will be released through Ninja Tune.

Cold Specks at Webster Hall in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Canadian goth-inflected soul songwriter Cold Specks, who is playing AfroPunk this weekend in Brooklyn, will release Neuroplasticity on August 25, including two songs that feature Swans Michael Gira. One, already shared awhile ago, is called "Exit Plan." The newer one is called "A Season of Doubt." Both make excellent use of Gira in his sinister whisper/growl mode. Cold Specks also recently appeared on Swans' To Be Kind, so things would seem to be coming full circle. You can stream album-closer "A Season of Doubt" and the other 90% of Neuroplasticity, below.

Cold Specks has also announced a worldwide tour in support of Neuroplasticity. The tour will bring her back to NYC to play Rough Trade on November 7. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/22) at noon. All dates are listed, along with the album stream, below.

Listen: Katy Perry and RiFF RaFFs This Is How We Do Remix
Aug 21, 2014 5:08pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Katy Perrys list of rap collaborations is steadily growing. Earlier this year, she teamed up with Juicy J for the trap-tinged single “Dark Horse”, and before that, she worked with Kanye for 2011’s “E.T.”. Now the Neon Icon himself, RiFF RaFF, is joining the ranks with a verse on the remix to her Prism track “This Is How We Do”.

Though RaFF’s verse is short, he packs in a bevy of his trademark punchlines. Proclaiming himself both the rap game Dr. Drew and Ted Koppel, RaFF boasts about valeting his helicopter on top of a Red Lobster and pulling up in a Lamborghini while holding Roman candles. It’s about as absurd and boastful as we’ve come to expect from Mr. Jody Highroller.

Listen in below.
