    Abbey Lounge closed until further notice. Garage-punks, rock critics, aging scenesters assumed to be inconsolable. From a post by Michelle Dent on the Noise Board:

    I was asked to post this from the owners and management of the club. Yes, this sucks.

    Since I know the gossip mill we be working overtime on this one, I would suggest not believing anything you hear from anyone unless they work at the Abbey.

    Mike Law and Stephen Brodsky (aka New Idea Society) have assembled a very special song titled "Equations."

    1. We've been wary ever since the casting was announced, but fuck it: OTD is offically really fucking stoked for the Johnny Cash bio-pic. If we were a different sort of blog, we might be posting American Recordings outtakes right now.

    2. Madonna fans rejoice: someone leaked her new single, "Hung Up." Elliott Smith fans rejoice: someone leaked an album's worth of Basement Tapes

    This post was supposed to have been ready last night, in order to persuade you to go to Beat Research featuring Big Digits. Damn. To wit:

    1. Nick Catchdubs gives "Boston Bounce" some shine in this month's Fader. Due to magazine long-lead time, presumably, no mention of the M.I.A. connection, which wasn't yet in place when Nick came up to interview DJ C, DJ Flack, and Wayne and Wax.

    From the top: Wes from Some Girls face to face with dervish-y mosh boy; Steve from Breather Resist gets his cellphone-picture took (that's a good look!); the next two pix are of the guitarists for Daughters; and then the last one is where our photographer, first-rate bro Matt Teuten, got caught up in the Some Girls pit and had to shoot his way out.

    1. Yes, if you must know, Karen O went scream-for-scream with former Give Up the Ghost frontman Wes Eisold on the title track of his spazz/grind supergroup SOME GIRLS latest EP, The DNA Will Have Its Say (ThreeOneG). "When we did vocals, I threw up on a couch and passed out," Eisold recalled, "so I don't even remember it too well."

    In lieu of posting their usual monthly mix, Certified Bananas took their crates over to Lemon-Red's mix series, thereby uniting three of our favorite people in a common enterprise. And this shit does not disappoint. Everyone seems to have their fave parts, but for us it's the way P. Nice and the Audiovandal took the Boston Bounce riddim and ran with it: there's this routine that starts with Freak Nasty's "Da Dip" -- one of those holy-shit moments of reclamation that only DJs can get away with -- and cycles through Janet Jackson, DJ C's M.

    If you read the Fader, you're aware that Mr. Andrew Wilkes-Krier no longer looks the way he does in the above photo. He now looks sort of like late-period Mike Patton: slicked-back hair, innocuous yet sleazy polyester office uniform in beige, wristwatch. We will be anxiously Flickr-ing all weekend in search of pix from his first official comeback gig.

    I, Perceptionist.

    If you missed the Perceptionists tour kickoff/going-away party, Elisabeth Donnelly's got a recap in this week's ish. And as it happens, there's new Liffage afoot. This comes from a mixtape by the new Jacksonville supercrew Asamov. Lif/Perceptionists/Asamov have a history of shared productions, DJs, and sensibilities.

    A year ago this month, Anal Cunt frontman Seth Putnam went to a friend's place for a birthday party. Cake and ice cream were not on the menu. In the course of an evening, Seth consumed $200 worth of crack cocaine, an untraceable amount of heroin, and at least a fifth of whiskey, while consorting with a crowd that included pimps, prostitutes, and at least one convicted armed robber.

    Better late than never. Our lives are officially over:


    The official word: top-shelf model is 60 gig monster that'll hold up to 15,000 songs or 150 hours of video, which it plays on a 2.5-inch screen, and also docks via cable to your television. Content-wise, initial rollout of 2000 music videos through iTunes, plus commercial-free TV shows will roll out from ABC/Disney that day after they air.

    Dear Santa,

    We know it's a little early, and the department stores only started bringing out the fake pine trees last week. But OTD has been good people this year. We've brought lots of mp3s (and even concert tickets!) to the needy. Now please throw us some fucking weight . . .

    1. Not long ago, it suddenly dawned on us: "Hey, aren't we the media sponsor for this Museum of Fine Arts concert series? The one with Black Dice, Magnolia Electric Co, the Books, and Four Tet? The one that's got the indie nerds going nuts?" "Uh, yeah, I guess." "Do we have a guest list?" "Probably. Why?" "Couldn't we just snarf the guest list and give it away to our friends?" "Yes, but that would be stealing."

    1. Tonight at the MFA's Remix Auditorium: brother and sister have a talk with grandma. If you have never heard of the Fiery Furnaces or Remembering My Choir, we're sorry you're so retarded, but really, it's not too late. After all, the bandwagon is just getting loaded up. "It’s really straightforward," Matt Friedberger tells the Phoenix this week.

    Not a paid endorsement.

    As previously reported and discussed at length, "Galang" is now a Honda commercial. Now streaming: from the Interscope site?! Which just goes to show: car commercials are the new MTV. (Speaking of which, MTV2 is now basic cable in our crib. We were totally psyched for the first three days.
