Stop the press(es)

1. As anyone who’s lusted for Frank Kozik’s devil dolls or got really baked and stared at an old Fillmore West concert poster for 16 hours can tell you, visual art and rock music have been inextricably tied since the 1960s. So it’s no surprise that smart music chain Newbury Comics is entering the rock-art collectors’ market in a big way. What is surprising is the depth of the poster-art show that’s kicking off the new venture at the flagship store. More than 500 limited-edition prints by more than 80 artists will be on display, including posters for Bright Eyes, Elvis Costello, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Coheed and Cambria, Queens of the Stone Age, and the Dresden Dolls 332 Newbury St, Boston 617.236.4930.

2. We’d make some witty joke about Mobius Band being so eager to jump the neo-new wave bandwagon that frontmen Ben Sterling and Peter Sax left their wooded enclave in Shutesbury (pop. 1800) for the high rents and low standard of living that Brooklyn affords. But both Ben and Peter did land good jobs as music-biz publicists, and that could make Mobius Band the best-publicized indie band of the year. Not that they need it. As the Sterling/Sax songwriting continues to hit its stride, Mobius Band are starting to look awfully fresh for the major-label picking. Back in town tonight with songs from their debut album, The Loving Sounds of Static, they're also readying a digital-only EP with remixes by the Junior Boys, among others, that'll be out in March. Great Scott 1222 Comm Ave, Allston 617.566.9014.
