Caught the above song as a promo between episodes of Little Einsteins on Disney Channel this weekend -- we could hear that voice three rooms away. The blonde hair threw us for a second, but 10 seconds of Googling brought confirmation and youtubage. Visit Hanleyboard for links to iPod-ready video-download links, plus confirmation that Kay's audience is now grownups with kids.
WATCH THE TRAILER: Silver Jew, Sunday and Monday at the Independent Film Festival of Boston
Though it's not reviewed in our roundup of the Independent Film Festival of Boston, we'd like to draw your attention to Silver Jew, which is not your typical rockumentary or even your typical earnest indie-band profile.

Cannibal Corpse (with Trevor from Black Dahlia Murder)

Job for a Cowboy
Beyond the Embrace
The Architect (Note to singers playing NEMHF: if your drummer throws a stool into the audience, the audience very well may throw it back and hit your singer in the head, thereby forcing him to complete the set in a bloody mess and then repair to the hospital afterwards for stiches. -- C.M.)

Boston's own DIY-art-punk group turned film-accompanists Devil Music started out playing basements, but since they began touring the silent-film circuit four years ago, they've taken to hitting big-time cultural institutions from Washington DC's John F.

Our dude David Day has been talking about bringing big tings to big rooms for about a year now, and now the shit is finally starting to pop. In a let's-get-the-whole-scene-under-one-roof-and-give-it-a-name enterprise called Basstown Productions (useless trivia: Basstown was the rejected first name for David's "Circuits" column)a bunch of people are responsible for round one: a bonkerlicious night at Axis with local metallicafont headbangers Hearthrob and official DFA dj Tim Sweeney, whom webternerds (and any other people who prize Carl Craig remixes of Junior Boys and so forth) will know from his indispensible terrestrial/webcast radio gig "Beats In Space
VIDEO: U.V. Protection, "Animals"
Thanks again to everyone who sent along videos for Best Music Poll. We tried to get them up on the ballot page, but the ballot page wasn't having it. So we're gonna try rolling them out OTD-style. If we're lucky, clicking above will get you the awesome video for UV Protection's "Animals," which reminds us of something by Numbers, although it turns out UV Pro have never heard Numbers.
This, dudes, is going to sell out quickly. We'll have VIP tix to give away eventually, but do you really want to rely on OTD's spotty blogging schedule to get into this?

Chris CornellApril 19 at AvalonPhotos: Carina Mastrocola
As you can tell from the setlist, Cornell is playing shit from all phases of his career -- Temple of the Dog?! -- but that opening/closing with prime-era Soundgarden ish has us hungry for a reunion. Kim Thayil, where you at?
Between reading Cam's rhyme book and listening to new Avril, Hillary, Trent, and Arctic Monkeys -- don't even get us started on that Amerie joint and the Bjork/Timbo collabo -- we haven't had much time to blog.
We recommend the following fine remedial material, blowing up a summertime near you soon:
1. Finally, Tim reached into the goodie bag and delivered the goods.
That whole DJ Drama mess spooked the crap out of mixtape DJs, to the extent that hometown hero CLINTON SPARKS done closed up shop on Mixunit, started a blog, took a day job at VH1, and is giving away his entire mixtape library for free.
Latest: a collabo with . . . Tommy friggin' Lee?

"Too many teardrops for one heart to be crying"-- "96 Tears"
Even as the details get stranger and stranger in the case of Cho Seung-Hui, the student poet/playwright turned Virginia Tech mass murderer, one particular non-sequitor stands out, at least to students of Michigan rock and roll. According to Cho's roommates, he sometimes insisted on being called by the name "Question Mark."
Sanjaya makes Unsexiest Top 10.
Some of the in-house folks we polled for this year's Unsexiest Men list were incredulous that Chuck Klosterman wasn't a transsexual. Mr. Chuck came in #17 on this year's poll -- a poll, we hasten to add, which kept us from blogging for most of last week. Also, the nor'easter flooded our offices -- which are on the third floor! We have other excuses, too, but we're saving them for the next time we miss deadline.
Geez, these venue fees are like some new form of date rape. Hope you brought yer calculators. Makes you want to root for Ozzy . . .
