    Thanks to the dudes over at Arts & Crafts, we've got AMY MILLAN tickets and CDs to give away in advance of her solo gig Wednesday at the Paradise. Those of you who don't know Amy, check the video and track below. We'd post more of her bio here except that we'd be spoiling the super-easy "trivia" question you'll need to answer in a second.

    Yeah, we didn't buy that "Stallyns" listing either. But we're also not entirely sure that the Bravery warrant fake-name gigs yet. At least not in New England, where some of us still have first-hand memories of Sam's ska past. In any case, now that the Killers sophomore effort has tanked, it's the Bravery's turn: having just completed The Sun and the Moon, with Brendan O'Brien, in Atlanta and New York, they're kicking off the obligatory club show in their home-away-from-home

    If you can stand Shade 45 DJs shouting over snippets, Jay and Nas's non-album track "Black Republican" -- ?? -- has surfaced.

    IF YOU GO:

    DETAILS: Bob Dylan and the Raconteurs at Agganis
    DETAILS: L.E.O at T.T. the Bear's Place.
    DETAILS: Campaign for Real Time at Great Scott

    1. Generally we'd rather listen to Dylan on the radio than in the club. But the addition to the bill of Jack White, who's taken 2006 off from the White Stripes to take a victory lap with a real band, not to mention kiss the asses of aging rock stars from the Stones to Lou Reed, almost made us want to see these BU shows

    DOWNLOAD: Dear Leader, "Monuments and Shrines" (mp3)

    They Google much better these days — no thanks to nuclear nutbag Kim Jong Il — but otherwise DEAR LEADER are the same gorgeously, mournfully grandiose bastards they’ve been since Aaron Perrino left the Sheila Divine to explore the emotional potential of stadium rock, or the stadium potential of emotional rock, or something like that.

    OTD just friended Nick Cave's new band, Grinderman. Details, in a nutshell: Warren Ellis, Nick Sclavunos, Martyn Casey -- "Foul-mouthed, noisy, hairy, and damn well old enough to know better" -- have album due in March. Instant internerd adulation in 5, 4, 3 . . .

    The one song up on MySpace is pretty badass.

    Straight crushing you

    Can't forget where I come from
    so I extend my hand to my man, screaming, "I'm on my way!"

    Uncharted territory, Massachoonians. Shouts to Roxburyans and Mattapanians who endured trickeration to join the landslide for MA's first black governor. OTD almost didn't vote today, figuring done deal and all, until a Healey phone-banker spooked us at 9 am and sent us, fuming and sputtering, to blacken our circle for Deval.

    WE WANT PRENUP: CLICK HERE for Britney/Federline divorce papers in PDF

    Hellz yeah. We knew there had to be a story behind that Letterman cameo. Britney, citing "irreconcilable differences," pulls the plug on Federline. We all know the real reason: shitty music. It'll do it every time. Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? THE BIGGEST STAR IN THE WORLD WAS MARRIED TO THIS DUDE:

    Bradley's Almanac was nice enough to wait a couple months before posting it, but now you can hear for yourself exactly what happened the night Chan Marshall played her solo gig at the MFA. After the unexpected triumph of her Memphis band tour, she gave a series of interviews declaring her infamous self-destructing-on-stage years were behind her

    1. Introducing: The DVDJ.

    2. We make fun of the Bosstones, but only because they were the second Boston band we ever loved, way back in 1990. (First Boston band we ever loved.) So we're probably the only people who hate ska-punk and are totally psyched that the Mighty Mighty ones have posted an unreleased oldie-but-goodie on their myspace page

    1. We know how much you dudes were let down by the DFA remix of Justin Timberlake's "My Love." We feel your pain. No, it's not as bad as the demo the DFA did with his ex-girlfriend or anything. But lets speak real words. You listen to this remix and you get the impression that there was some tape left on the floor from the LCD Nike promo, and it happened to be in the same key, but not quite in the same tempo, so they just slowed the acappella down and .
