News Roundup: February 21, 2012 ("A Ton Of Stuff Happened" Edition)
Yo. So as always seems to be the case after a long weekend, a TON of cool announcements dropped today. The FN staff is scrappy, sure, but still rather small (wanna join us?), so we couldn't grab up everything today.
When that happens, we turn to the informative power of... THE NEWS ROUNDUP!... to give you guys all the tips, links, and general goodness we saw out there and smiled and nodded at. Lots of really good stuff today too, so check it below:
--- Pulp added a second show at Radio City Music Hall - tickets are on sale now.
--- Speaking of legendary Brit-pop acts, Blur played The Brit Awards this evening (via CoS)! Check out some videos. They're also headlining the London 2012 Olympic Closing ceremonies, along with The Specials and, oh, NEW ORDER.
--- Rufus Wainwright is coming back to Amurrica in May, including a local show at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) on May 9. Presale tickets are on sale now, as are just general tickets to shows taking place shortly after in California.
--- tUnE-yArDs! Her crazy awesomeness is going on a big Summer 2012 Tour, including a stop at Terminal 5 on June 1. No one really likes T5, but she has a way of making everything excellent, so buy a ticket to that or other shows on the East Coast and briefly in Canada.
--- Matador unveiled the third single from Ceremony's upcoming album, Zoo, called "Adult." This album is clearly going to rule.
--- Public Image Ltd. revealed more details about that upcoming album we told you about (via P4K).
Did we forget anything rad that happened today? Maybe. How about you tell us more in the comments?
