The Last Vegas [Friday
February 27th 11.31pm]

Hey :) I hesitated on posting this but looking thru the last posts in the community it didn't seem too far off from what was being posted? Hope no one minds, & that maybe someone is interested in checking out this band! :) Thanks!

A little bit about the band--
"In front of a capacity crowd at the world famous Whisky A-Go-Go, complete with music industry tastemakers, Guitar Center and Mötley Crüe selected The Last Vegas from Chicago, IL, as the winner of Guitar Center On-Stage last night. Over the past eight weeks, bands across the United States submitted their music at makerockhistory.com. From close to 8000 submissions, 30 semi-finalists were selected, which were then narrowed down to the six top undiscovered bands in the country, with The Last Vegas prevailing as the one band chosen for the ultimate, career altering opportunity — the chance to open on tour for rock icons, Mötley Crüe."

• Nate Arling (drums)
• Adam Arling (guitar)
• Chad Cherry (lead vocals)
• Johnny Wator (guitar)
• Danny Smash (bass)

Here is a link if you want to check out their website & listen to some of their music!!

The Hostel - Movement [Thursday
December 25th 2.22am]

A weird and very optimistic russian rock-group The Hostel has published a new single «Movement». It is dedicated to war. War is a content of the life – that’s the point. These three songs were written mostly in 2007, but the idea of putting them together in Internet-single came in the days of war in Osetia.

In the single you’ll find the influences of psycho-folk and garage music, of post-rock and the new weird America. Three songs, 8 minutes of sound, that express greatly the tragic and destructive sense of our today world. The faith in God, the hope of something salvational in future.

Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer covers Death Cab For Cutie! [Monday
March 19th 11.03pm]

[ mood | excited ]

I noticed Amanda Palmer (of The Dresden Dolls) just put up an excellent cover of Death Cab For Cutie's "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" on her solo MySpace...it's well, well worth checking out/downloading. I've always loved that song, and really liked what she did with it...check it out HERE...

(By the way, not sure how many of you are familiar with Amanda or The Dolls, but they're absolutely amazing -- one of my favorite bands, even...if you dig the DCFC cover, they've also been covering "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service live for a few years -- there's a download of that available HERE on The Brigade -- their live/rarities MP3 archive)

First it was the reunion of the Wu-Tang Clan in 2004. Then it was A Tribe Called Quest later that year. Now, ROCK THE BELLS will make history again as Rage Against The Machine announces their plans to perform three exclusive engagements with the critically acclaimed world-class hip-hop festival this summer. The epic line-up will see Rage Against The Machine join Wu-Tang Clan for two dates on the west coast (August 11--NOS Events Center, San Bernardino, CA, August 18--venue TBA, San Francisco) and for Rock The Bells’ inaugural venture into New York City (July 28-- Randall’s Island) for their only scheduled appearance on the eastern seaboard this year. The Wu-Tang Clan will support the release of their forthcoming album 8 Diagrams.

Rock The Bells, presented by Guerilla Union since 2003, has established itself as a world-class hip-hop platform by hosting legendary performances by NAS, A Tribe Called Quest, Lauryn Hill, Blackstarr (Talib Kweli and Mos Def), Cuban Linx, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Cypress Hill and Jurassic 5 as well as reuniting Wu-Tang for their last performance with ODB in 2004. This year, the festival will keep in its tradition and showcase the very best the genre has to offer.

“It’s definitely our fans’ dream billing. It’s a tremendous honor to have Rage Against The Machine and Wu-Tang Clan perform together,” states event organizer Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union. “I can’t wait to announce the rest of the line-up for Rock the Bells. It’s incredibly important to put some shine on quality Hip Hop. The opportunity to galvanize the social and political consciousness of these groups is undeniable.”

The complete line-up will be announced March 26th and tickets will go on-sale March 31st at 10:00am. For complete details and updates, log onto www.guerillaunion.com,
www.rockthebells.net, or www.myspace.com/rockthebells.

Garbage/Shirley Manson [Thursday
November 16th 6.16pm]

Garbage Dig Through the Past for Hits

Garbage, currently on an indefinite hiatus, will mine the vaults for a best-of, dubbed 'Absolute Garbage,' this spring. The effort will feature ever-dapper hits like 'I'm Only Happy When It Rains' and 'Stupid Girl,' and will be preceded by a new single.

Meanwhile, frontwoman Shirley Manson has begun work on a solo album, racking up a Who's Who of collaborators. The latest rockers joining the brazen singer are White Stripes/Raconteurs mastermind Jack White and Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan.

Manson previously reached out to Blue Nile's Paul Buchanan in a letter asking him to join her writing efforts. Buchanan will join Manson in the studio next month to continue work on the album, which is also due in 2007.
