Mar 29, 2015 8:29am | Fact Magazine

A video posted by David Victor (@davicmus) on Mar 28, 2015 at 6:50pm PDT

Last night (March 28), Destiny’s Child reunited for a performance at the Stellar Music Gospel Awards in New Orleans.

It was the first time Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams had performed together in public since their show at the Super Bowl in 2013. The trio performed Williams’ ‘Say Yes’, which was nominated in the Song of the Year category, and featured on Williams’ recent gospel album Journey To Freedom.

You can watch a clip of the performance above, ahead of the airing of the ceremony on April 5 on TV One in the US, and check the track’s official video below. [via Pitchfork]

Prince sued after giving away album by The Voice singer Judith Hill
Mar 29, 2015 5:37am | Fact Magazine

The shoe’s on the other foot this time round.

Prince has been sued for copyright infringement after offering an album by The Voice contestant Judith Hill for free download.

Earlier this week, Prince sent out an email encouraging fans to download the debut album from Hill, who featured on the US version of the talent show in 2013. The email included a link to a free download of the 11-track record that has since expired, writing: ‘Please spend some time with this music and then share it with someone U love.’

Now Prince is being sued by producer Jolene Cherry, who claims that Hill signed an exclusive contract with her and Sony Records after appearing on The Voice in 2013. Cherry says her relationship with Sony was then restructured, and that the rights to Hill’s four-album deal should have passed to her. She also claims that she rejected Hill’s request to record and release an album with Prince, warning her that working with the artist would violate the recording agreement.

According to the lawsuit, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday (March 27), “The Cherry Party is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that Hill and Prince boldly and inexplicably ignored these warnings (and the law) and continued to proceed. Indeed, not only did Hill and Prince finish an album of...

Selfie sticks banned by several US festivals
Mar 29, 2015 4:51am | Fact Magazine

A victory for common sense.

Coachella and Lollapalooza have become the latest US festivals to ban the use of selfie sticks, following similar action by Ultra Miami earlier this month.

As Brooklyn Vegan points out, the FAQ section on Lollapalooza’s site states that there should be no “GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks & monopods.” Coachella’s official site also states that “Selfie sticks / Narcissists” are banned from attendance.

The devices  long sticks that attach to your phone or camera to let you take photos of yourself and others – have been the source of much frustration recently, for both health and safety reasons and the contravention of no photography policies. Earlier this year O2 Academy Brixton, Londons O2 Arena and Wembley Arena banned the devices from their venues for those reasons.

In case you’ve remained blissfully ignorant and are still none the wiser as to what a selfie stick does, Death Grips filmed their recent video with one of the devices – you can watch that below. [via NME]

What's going on Sunday? (They Might Be Giants, Curren$y, Jenny Hval, Mourn, Wand, Sapphire Mansions & more)
Mar 28, 2015 11:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

photo: They Might Be Giants in Prospect Park in 2013 (more by Ryan Muir)

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

Curren$y @ BB King's
Consistently great New Orleans rapper Curren$y is saying his Pilot Talk 3 will drop this year, but while we wait for more details on that, he's busy on tour. Tonight's show was rescheduled from 3/5.

Jenny Hval, LODRO, Softspot @ Alphaville
Norway's Jenny Hval recently put out a track from her upcoming album on Sacred Bones, and it has her eccentric art pop sounding great as ever. She recently played a big NYC show with Perfume Genius, but tonight's going to be much more intimate.

They Might Be Giants @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Longtime Brooklyn residents TMBG are playing a series of shows at MHOW and tonight they'll be playiing Flood in full, plus many of the Dial-a-Song favorites and more. Sold out.

WAND, Honey @ Mercury Lounge
LA band WAND make glammy, heavy rock that's not too far away from what former tourmate Ty Segall does, but they're not afraid to thicken things with vintage analog synths. They're terrific live. This is their second of two NYC shows.

Sapphire Mansions, Owen Cohen, RickLus @ Cameo Gallery
If you have an appreciation for the C-86 sound or are familiar at all with early '80s Cherry Red Records or Creation (es...


Pearl Jam-featuring supergroup Citizen Dick to get first-ever commercial release
Mar 28, 2015 2:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The soundtrack to Cameron Crowes Singles has long been heralded as a turning point in the Seattle grunge movement. Packed with tracks from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Mudhoney, the OST was certified twice platinum, and helped further indoctrinate grunge into the American music canon.

Most interesting, however, was the soundtrack’s omission of Citizen Dick, the fictional band fronted by Matt Dillon in the movie. Thats about to change as “Touch Me Im Dick” will receive an exclusive 7-inch release for this years Record Store Day on April 18th.

The song, which features Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, and Jeff Ament, is effectively a parody of Mudhoneys classic “Touch Me Im Sick” but, you know, with more dick jokes.

The b-side of the 7-inch features an etched quote from Dillons character, Cliff Poncier, explaining the meaning of the song: “I think a lot of people might think its actually about, you know, ‘My name is Dick, and, you know, you can touch me,’ but, I think, you know, it can be seen either way.”

Revisit the track below.



David Duchovny teases details of X-Files new season
Mar 28, 2015 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Following this week’s exciting announcement that The X-Files will be returning to television for six new episodes, Fox Mulder himself, David Duchovny has teased fans on what they can expect.

In a new interview with the New York Times, Duchovny confirmed that The X-Files will return to Vancouver, where the first five seasons of the show were filmed. He also revealed the six episodes will be a mixture of serialized storytelling and one-off monster episodes.

“Were gonna do both. Im pretty sure its gonna begin and end with the mythology,” Duchovny added.

Duchovny also discussed his and co-star Gillian Anderson’s evolution as actors and how that may be reflected in the characters of Mulder and Scully.

“If I were to look back at the first or second year of the show, I wouldnt try to act like that guy,” Duchovny explained. “Im capable of doing more. Shes capable of doing more. Itll be interesting to see how we keep the characters the same but also the actors are better.”

Filming for the new season of X-Files is expected to begin this summer and will air on FOX at a date still to be announced.



Immortal Technique arrested on suspicion of robbery
Mar 28, 2015 1:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Rapper Immortal Technique has been arrested on suspicion of attacking and robbing two men who allegedly sold unauthorized t-shirts featuring his trademarked image, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A group of 10-12 men, including Immortal Technique, allegedly confronted the vendors outside Santa Ana music venue Observatory prior to Immortal Technique’s concert there on Thursday night. A scuffle ensued and the vendors claim “they were beaten and had their T-shirts, cash and cellphones forcibly taken from them,” according to Santa Ana police.

Immortal Technique was identified as one of the assailants and arrested on suspicion of robbery and attempting to dissuade a witness. No stolen items were found in his possession, however. The rapper posted bail and was released.



Prince sued for copyright infringement after releasing Judith Hill album for free download
Mar 28, 2015 12:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound

A copyright infringement lawsuit involving Prince is hardly news, but rarely is he the defendant. TMZ reports the legendary musician is facing legal action for the same practices he’s long battled against: the unauthorized distribution of music.

Earlier this week, Prince sent out an email encouraging fans to download a new album from singer Judith Hill. The email included a link for a free download of the 11-track record, which remains active as of today. “Please spend some time with this music and then share it with someone U love,” he wrote.

Now, however, Prince has been hit with a lawsuit by producer Jolene Cherry and Sony Records, who claim Hill is signed to an exclusive contract with them. The suit adds that Prince did not have permission to release Hill’s music, and the plaintiffs are now seeking punitive damages.



Watch Ad-Rock Clown Around On Jimmy Fallon
Mar 28, 2015 11:26am | StereoGum
Ad-Rock was one of the guests on last night's episode of Jimmy Fallon. It was his first time appearing on a talk show solo. He was there to promote his role in Noah Baumbach's new film While We're Young, but he mostly just joked around with Fallon and fellow guest Will Forte. He did talk a little bit about the Beastie Boys opening up for Madonna on her Like A Virgin tour, and says that the audience "hated" them. And Jimmy Fallon showed off a picture of him with DJ Hurricane that he took after going to a Beastie Boys show back in the '90s. Later on in the show, he appeared in a segment with River Monsters host Jeremy Wade, and looked a little spooked around all of the weird fish that he was showing off. Watch the interview below.



Sacha Baron Cohen will write, direct, and star in Freddie Mercury biopic
Mar 28, 2015 10:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

An on-again, off-again Freddie Mercury biopic starring Sacha Baron Cohen appears to be on again. Last year, it was reported that Cohen had left the project due to disagreements with the surviving members of Queen over the films direction and tone. Now, though, Queen manager Jim Beach has revealed that Cohen is back on board with the project, and not only will he depict the legendary singer, he’s also writing and directing the film himself.

“You have probably followed the saga of the famous Queen-Freddie Mercury biopic which has been developing in Hollywood for the last seven years,” Beach said during a speech at the Artist and Manager Awards this week. “An important breakthrough is that we have now managed to persuade Sacha Baron Cohen to write, produce and direct this movie, and he has also agreed to star.”

Beach did not discuss a timetable for the project. However, according to IMDB, Cohen has nothing scheduled once he’s done filming a new comedy called Grimsby, so presumably production could begin as soon as this year.

Now, though, Queen manager Jim Beach has revealed that Cohen is back on board with the project, and not only will he depict the legendary singer, he’s also writing and directing the film himself.

Update – March 29th: According to Queen guitarist Brian May, Beach was merely joking about Cohen’s participation in the biopic.

“You have probably followed the saga of the famous Queen-Freddie Mercury biopic which has been developing in Hollywood for the last seven years,” Beach said during a speech at the Artist and Manager Awards this week. “An important breakthrough is that we have now managed to persuade Sacha Baron Cohen to write, produce and direct this movie, and he has also agreed to star.”
