Hey everyone! Rushing off to a sexy trivia party tonight (not kidding, you should come!), so here's your news blast for the day.
- Dean Wareham has a particularly awesome habit of playing live sets centered on material from his celebrated band Galaxie 500 with his wife Britta Phillips. They're continuing this tradition at one of FN's favorite venues, Le Poisson Rouge, on July 20, so you should buy a ticket right now. We'll wait. (Le Poisson Rouge)
- Took care of that? Cool. Now then, in honor of all the Coachella love going around since last week, the Pixies put their storied Coachella 2004 set up for free on their website to kick off their live concert download series (Slicing Up Eyeballs)
- It's officially on: Ty Segall has confirmed that a new Ty Segall Band album, Slaughterhouse, is coming out on June 24 via In The Red (Consequence of Sound)
- It's been a great week for fans of The Walkmen: in addition to the title track from their upcoming album Heaven, you can now check out another album cut called "Heartbreaker" (Stereogum)
- And finally, check in with our friends at BrooklynVegan for details on how you can get into The Hives' (no longer) secret NYC show at The Studio At Webster on April 26! (BrooklynVegan)
