Hi! Come hang out at Don Pedro Lounge in Brooklyn tonight - it's our friend Jen's birthday and a lot of cool bands will be playing.
And now: here's more news.
- Us local night owls got an excellent treat in the form of the legendary Pulp taking to the stage on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon - their first US TV appearance in 14 years - to perform "Common People" and "Like A Friend" in advance of their Radio City Hall residency beginning tonight. Check the clips after the jump (Late Night With Jimmy Fallon)
- In what was essentially The Show Heard 'Round The World, At The Drive-In played the first show of their celebrated reunion at Austin's Red 7, blowing everyone's minds in the process. And oh yes, there's footage of that (Stereogum)
- The cryptically awesome Aesop Rock is releasing his first new album in five years, Skelethon, on July 10 via Rhymesayers, and it's first single "Zero Dark Thirty" is a blistering lyrical whirl that reminds me why I became a fan back in the Labor Days days. Stream it below the jump (Rhymesayers)
- You can also stream Battles' new remix album, Dross Glop, over hyah! (Prefix)
- And finally, check out the new video for Eleanor Friedberger's "I Won't Fall Apart On You Tonight" from the excellent Last Summer, and be sure to catch her at The Bell House on April 18 (tickets) or elsewhere on her tour (Merge)
