advanced news:

Huge benefit show March 20 at Hammerstein Ballroom where you can be both cheered and booed for making comments about the USA in the Mid East. Line-up includes: Michael Stipe, Rufus Wainwright, Bright Eyes, Fischerspooner (who should be playing by themselves), Peaches, Devendra Banhart, Steve Earle (who I had to listen to one time in a car on the way to NYC).
My Morning Jacket nominated for Jammy awards because apparently they are a jam band.
Metropolis Records signed Gary Numan. It's about time. They also signed an indie rock band called Ken (!?).
Ex-Nitzer Ebb member Bon Harris (the one that didn't sing industrial-dance songs such as "Join in the Chant") is the frontman of a new band called Maven. There's some songs on myspace previewing an upcoming release. Now I know why the other guy in Nitzer Ebb sang.
