Subhumans at Punk Rock Bowling 2013 (more by Keith Marlowe)

Lauryn Hill at FPSF 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

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

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Nicole Atkins @ Hammerstein Ballroom
What can you say about Nick Cave? He's a living legend and remains an absolutely magnetic live performer. It will probably be raining outside tonight, but Nick will bring the thunder indoors. Tickets are still available.

Subhumans, Sheer Terror, White Collar Crime, Mischief Brew @ le Poisson Rouge
Two veteran punk bands team up for this show at LPR tonight, the UK's legendary Subhumans and hometown NYHC heroes Sheer Terror.

Lauryn Hill @ Brooklyn Bowl
Though Lauryn Hill sometimes has to postpone her shows, she's still been pretty active lately, and tonight she kicks off a 2-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl which should be packed with favorites from her classic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and her time in The Fugees too.

Luke Temple, Buffalo Stance, Laser Background, Killer Bob @ Baby's All Right
Here We Go Magic frontman Luke Temple released Good Mood Fool last year, where he bathed in warm funk and gentle reggae, giving things an enjoyably mellow vibe.

Body Language, Not Blood, Paint, Psychic Twin, Starlight Girls, Neighbors, Weyes Blood @ Onderdonk House<...

Kurt Cobain biopic to go into production within next year
Jul 26, 2014 1:28pm | Cosequence Of Sound

A biopic about Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain should go into production within the next year, according to Courtney Love.

In a new interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer, Love said she is overseeing the film’s creation alongside her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, and Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

The role of Cobain has yet to be cast, but as Love explained, there’s no shortage of candidates. “I wont name names because I dont want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts … Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces.” Ultimately, however, Love says she’ll leave the decision to the professionals: I dont want to be the person who makes that decision. Lets leave that to the agents; I have great agents now. But I will have a say in it.

As the Guardian notes, Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster and The Messengers Oren Moverman have previously been attached to the film. Wether they’re still involved with the project is unknown.

In addition to the biopic, Love has discussed a Cobain-inspired musical as well as a documentary directed by Brett Morgen, who previously helmed The Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane.



Listen: Big K.R.I.T.s new single Pay Attention
Jul 26, 2014 12:17pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Back in the spring, Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. previewed his forthcoming sophomore album, Cadillactica, by releasing a new song every day for an entire week. Across seven songs, he visited a number of ideas and sentiments, from the boisterous “Egyptian Cotton” to the New Age-leaning “Steps” and even a little friendly satire in “Wolf On Wallstreet”. A few weeks later, he unleashed the albums earth-shattering, pseudo-diss track/lead single, “Mt. Olympus”.

Today, K.R.I.T. unveils Cadillacticas latest single, “Pay Attention”, which shows off the emcees sultrier side. Over Jim Jonsins heavily dramatic beat of bellowing synths and heartbeat-esque drums, K.R.I.T. drops line after line obsessing and romanticizing over a particular young lady in the club. (My personal favorite: “You the type of chick a n***a search for when he have to go out/Spotlight, night life, live in V.I. every weekend”.) Aiding him in his conquest of the heart is Rico Love, whose falsetto, ache-filled chorus rounds out K.R.I.T.s more boastful tendencies.

Heres The Rap Video Behind That #WeStillComing Photo
Jul 26, 2014 11:27am | StereoGum

Over the past few weeks, a viral story has been making the rounds about the wedding photo above that was declared “the best wedding photo ever.” The supposed story behind the photo was that a bride-to-be texted a wrong number with the location of a BBQ/wedding photo party and they replied with “We still coming,” which inspired a hashtag and countless posts in an effort to attract pageviews. (Hey…) As with most viral stories, it was all a fake. Well, kind of. The text message conversation never happened, but the real story should have been interesting enough to spread across the web without making stuff up. Buzzfeed did some heavy investigative reporting and found out that the photo happened when a couple went to the abandoned Michigan Central Station in Detroit to take their photos and happened upon rap group 7262 shooting a video. They decided to team up: the couple got a cool wedding photo and the rap group got to use some slo-mo footage of the bridesmaids. The song’s not very good, but you can watch the video that inspired #WeStillComing below.

Alt-Country Con Man Gets 4 Years In Prison For Bilking Investors With Fake Album Feat. Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire, Pearl Jam
Jul 26, 2014 11:08am | StereoGum

According to Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Portland musician Kasey Anderson has been sentenced to four years in prison after defrauding investors out of almost $600,000 by promising to put on a benefit concert and release a compilation album featuring some big musicians to benefit the West Memphis Three, who were incarcerated for 18 years before being released after DNA evidence came to light that demonstrated their supposed innocence. Anderson said the benefit would feature appearances from Tom Petty, Pearl Jam, and Johnny Depp. The compilation album would have had songs from Pearl Jam, R.E.M., and Bruce Springsteen both with Lady Gaga and Arcade Fire. All of the artists supposedly involved had no knowledge of the event. He pulled off the scheme mostly by impersonating people through e-mail, including Jon Landau, tour managers, and relatives of the West Memphis Three.

All of the artists supposedly involved had no knowledge of the event. “I am a deeply flawed and mentally ill person who made some terrible choices, causing so much emotional and financial damage to others,” Anderson said in a letter. “But I believe I have much to offer my community. I am so sorry for what I’ve done and want so badly to make it right.” The investors have still not been completely repaid.

Aretha Franklin Has Beef With Johnny Rockets Over Takeout Hamburger Incident
Jul 26, 2014 10:31am | StereoGum

It’s pretty satisfying when we get to write a “Where’s The Beef” article involving actual beef, so here we go. According to an Associated Press report, Aretha Franklin stopped by a Buffalo, New York Johnny Rockets — the faux ’50s franchise that trades in nostalgia for bad hamburgers — and was yelled at by a staffer when she tried to sit down and eat a burger she had ordered to-go after performing at a sold out concert in the area. Franklin issued a statement about the incident because that’s a thing that famous people do when they’re upset and called the worker “very rude, unprofessional and nasty.” A spokesman for the restaurant responded with an apology, saying it was the work of a “new and very young employee” and said that she clarified the restaurant’s policy for takeout burgers with the staff member so this kind of atrocity doesn’t happen again.

Shut Up, Dude: This Weeks Best And Worst Comments
Jul 26, 2014 10:26am | StereoGum

On Tuesday night, Jack White took in a Cubs-Padres game as part of a three-ballparks-in-three-nights promo and probably had a fine time. But he also made the mistake of showing a range of human emotions in the Friendly Confines. A TV camera caught the rocker’s grumpy mug and it instantly went viral. So we had a caption contest. Thanks to the hundreds of you who submitted image macros and thanks to the dozens of you who followed the rules for getting an image to display in the comments. As promised, the highest-voted submission is below, follow by the usual best/worst comments of the week roundup. (Also, White will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Tigers game on Tuesday.)
