    Not sure, but we think Jason Newsted's torso is inside.

    1. Continuing Camille's thread from the other day, more beef, please:

    - Sleater-Kinney calls out Interpol in this week's Phoenix. (Hey, if S-K wants to come play Best Music Poll, we can settle this next week once and for all. Sub Pop: make it happen!)

    Breaking news . . .

    Honeypump Board is dead. Demise ruled "accidental." Natives skeptical. Years of smartassery and double-secret inside jokes erased!

    Ben Sisto commandeers the enemy's megaphone, rallies the troops. Reassurance: your usernames are toast, but my email's OK!

    Dazed Allston hipsters, suddenly alone in the universe and deprived of an outlet for their immense postiveness and clever-tude -- not to mention a place to plug their gigs -- annoy

    1. Since the Decemberists tumble into Avalon tonight (five/six piece from Portland, Oregon? they sing about waifs?), we’d like to inform you that Colin Meloy is an indie-rock heartthrob, just in case you didn’t read it here and here and then here again. Some outtakes from a wintry conversation we had with Mr.

    Recycling last month's post because no one was reading then, anyway, and tonight they're actually IN COUNTRY:

    Les Breastfeeders: video worth checking out because of the dude with the weird chest hair who wears ape arms and climbs out of suitcases in the middle of the avenue and whose role in the band appears to be limited to playing tambourine and making French-type you-all-vant-to-have-sex-vith-me faces.

    We smell a new rock beef. Sleater-Kinney’s The Woods officially dropped today (remember when release dates actually mattered?) and during press interviews for the new record, Carrie Brownstein’s been dissing Interpol harder than the Brandon Flowers blasting the Bravery. What, was Carlos D. in a ska band too? Nope, says Carrie B.

    Nobody, the thinking goes, buys tickets on Memorial Day Weekend. Except people who just saw the Southern Strokes open for U2.

    Damn, almost forgot: some band called the Gorillaz is in town tonight. Damon/Jamie/Mouse action around 7:30 at Newbury Comix to sign the brand-spanking-new record, then FNX/Phoenix-sponsored jumpoff at Bill's Bar around 10:30-ish, where the boys behind the toons will partying with our boys Will Spitz and Paul Driscoll.

    Mumbles proclaimed it U2 day in Boston. We're still trying to figure out how that makes today different from every other day. You'd think they were Dropkick Murphys or something, the way people suddenly turn Irish for these dudes.

    Just to be on the safe side -- not like tickets weren't sold out like ten years ago -- the opening band is holding off on putting their Avalon show on-sale until after the circus has left town.

    Well, at least that Bravery brawl outside Great Scott last month was good for something: it got the Pill into -- wha? -- the freaking New York Times Sunday Styles section?! Let's recap our favorite lines, shall we?

    1. "Alex Zolli, in a vintage two-tone tie, claimed to come by his artfully bedroom hair naturally."

    1. You guys know We Eat So Many Shrimp, right? We're on that site all the time, 'cause we like Three Six Mafia just as much as the next Satanic drank-guzzling white people. Anyway, Shrimps dude posted long-ish about our boy Brett Milano's book on record-collecting, Vinyl Junkies. They seemed to like it, sorta.

    Katastrophe junkin' at the Salvation Army in Chelsea

    Speaking of girly-man rappers... cut Har Mar in half, soak him in Hedwig's juices, then rinse with an emo-hop flow, and you might get something like San Fran trans-man Katastrophe (a/k/a Rocco Kayiatos). When we were chilling with the West Coast whiteboi and his longtime ladyfriend Michelle Tea last spring, another Tee (this one named Larry) had been all up on Kayiatos’s inch-and-a-half jock.

    Hint one: it's not a rock band.
    Hint two: it's a rapper.
    Hint three: it's a white guy.
    Hint four: he backs up his rhymes with body-slams

    No, it couldn't be . . . WWE World Champion John Cena?!! Yup, the rhyming rassler and West Newbury native took Robert Plant, Green Day, Elvis, and the Star Wars soundtrack to the mat last week to wrangle a #15 debut on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart

    This is what you get when you let the Noise Board pansies put together a "Heaviest Song Ever" mixtape. It's about 30 tons lighter than even something as trite as the MTV2 Headbangers Ball comps -- Tool? Nice art-rock band, but heavy? The fuck outta here -- and the Funkadelic/Beatles/VU inclusions are like some third-grader's crayon scrawling of Chuck Eddy's Stariway to Hell

    It's the kind of story you can only find in Brookline: DIY community arts center teams up with hardcore-punk promoters to try and stave off eviction, raises hundreds of thousands of dollars in a matter of weeks (including contribution from one Red Sox higher-up), only to get OWNED at the last second when the landlord sells out to .

    1. Indie-rock as performance art? Last year, the local pick-up "band" Cult of Point Break formed as a sort of repertory group for indie classics. They kicked off by doing Slint's Spiderland, and within a week of their show, Slint got back together. We're pretty sure it was a coincidence and everything, but if Alex Chilton announces something special next month, you'll have these guys to thank.
