    Everyone seems obsessed right now with pushing UK grime into bed with Screwston hip-hop, so maybe it was inevitable that someone would release a chopped-and-screwed version of the first major post-Run the Road grime album: Roll Deep's In at the Deep End. But, like, before the album's even officially out? By some Swedish dudes living in, like, France or something? For free on the internet? Clap your hands say yeah for Radioclit, who've done just that.

    Back in the game like you-know-who.

    No, you didn't wake up in a different town. That's the new-look Phoenix, and chances are, someone who wrote it handed it to you this morning. If you just showed up here at OTD, we've been at this blog thing for a minute, so you might wanna scroll down and check the archives; you've got some catching up to do.

    Cubby Berk and Tim Howard at ZuZu. Photo, as always, by Kelly Davidson.

    Wanderlust has been biting Boston's young songwriters. This past May, Soltero dude Tim Howard and Carolyn “Cubby” Berk ditched their sometime backing bands and went on a sullen-songwriter solo tour. Now that they're back, we find out that Howard moves to Philly at the end of this month, while Lovers’s cutie Cubby will defect to Portland, Oregon.

    This just in: guess who's running nekkid again?

    We're going to have to start this as a regular feature, something like Where in the World are Amanda Palmer's Boobs?

    Here's the official annoying all-caps cutline, cut-and-pasted straight from Rucker's forwarded-e-mailed mouth: The Dresden Dolls performed live on WKQX (Q101)/CHICAGO’s MANCOW’S MORNING MADHOUSE (l-r) DD’s BRIAN VIGLIONE, AMANDA PALMER, and Q101’s MANCOW MULLER.

    This just in: guess who's opening the Backstreet Boys dates?


    They're from Boston.

    They're a boy band.

    But not that kind of boy band.

    They used to live on Imrie Road in Allston.

    Then they opened for Ashlee Simpson.

    No, it couldn't be . . .

    Oh, yes it is.

    We told you these kids were gonna be a problem:

    Lemon-Red has been working on launching his monthly mix series for a minute; of course, shit got launched while we're on vacation. But if you haven't already, RUN DON'T WALK over there to catch the inaugural mix by DJ/Rupture, the ex-Cantabrigian ex-Toneburst glitch/ragga/mash genius now exiled in Spain. (We've got Spain on the brain, 'cause some dudes from Barcelona are working on some fireworks for next Phoenix issue: prepare to be dazzled.

    Blanche at TT's.

    Many snowstorms ago, we trekked down to TT’s to ease our whiskey-spiked wintry blues with a coupla Kills. One of VV and Hotel’s openers was Blanche, this inauspicious country-fried fivesome fronted by a husband-and-wife duo: a sleek-suited dude who looked like Lyle Lovett’s clear-skinned cousin, along with a porcelian-doll version of Lovett’s fire-engine-redhead ex-wife.

    Yes, the LCD Soundsystem/M.I.A. show was as good as billed: destruction at both ends of the bill. (If y'all are nice to Cami, maybe she can dig around and find out if Amy's photos are in yet.) But, uh, the big question on everyone's mind seemed to be: what happened to Diplo? Maya introduced the guy-who-looked-like-Diplo-and-played-dude's-records as their "new addition," pretty sure by name of DJ Contra.

    The Raveonettes @ Axis.

    Futureheads @ Axis.

    Kaiser Chiefs's Ricky Nelson @ Avalon:
    This is the first time he's played this song with a stiffie.

    Dresden Dolls @ Avalon.

    DD's Brian yowling at the kit.

    Amanda Palmer looks mad, kinda like her all-access pass wasn't at
    the front gate either.

    Louis XIV photo by Mike @ MB-Imaging.
    More of Mike's BMP Pavilion photos here.

    Sage Francis and his band took the stage in "Fuck Clearchannel" t-shirts (yes, it was a CC venue), then horrified the beer sponsors by thanking Budweiser for turning his dad into a child-molesting drunk. Dresden Dolls were headlining, but Amanda Palmer wasn't taking any chances about being the absolute center of attention: yes, that was Amanda streaking in FULL NUDITY across the Avalon stage during Kaiser Chiefs set, leaving FNX music director Paul Driscoll holding her bathrobe, jumping on singer Ricky Wilson, and then rushing into a waiting robe held by her tour manager.

    1. Boston major-indie-label-rock fans STAND UP! This is your so-called life calling! We've got the Interpols and Der Killers and stuff! Listen to our radio station! . . . Uh, sorry. Sort of going through Best Music Poll-hype-exhaustion over here. Seriously, though, for those of us who remember what the FNX show looked like a few years ago, this year's edition is a really, really, really, really good thing.
