    Lollapalooza flick by Carina Mastrocola

    In addition to OTD’s Friday, Halloween spirited MPFreeee goodness, here’s another pre-weekend treat: Checking our e-mail this morning and we had a happy message from the folks over at Tourfilter (how do they always know about this shit first?) - M.I.A. will play the Palladium on November 28! It’s not up on M.

    Damon & Naomi are calling their current tour “The Roaring Silence Revue,” a reference to the combination of their own subdued-but-steely folk sound and the deep-bass noise-rock of their tourmates, Japanese trio Boris. D&N are working their new Within These Walls (20/20/20), and even though their first CD after the breakup of Galaxie 500 was called More Sad Hits, this might be the saddest yet, inspired, they say, by a year of digging into Frank Sinatra and the weepiest albums of his that they could find — Only the Lonely and No One Cares

    New suits, new ’staches, new songs — same old vaudevillian showmanship, same old mathematically precise eardrum molestation. At a sweaty, stinky, crushd-tin-box (sorry, we still have Radiohead on the brain) Middle East downstairs last night the Hives lived up to Howlin’ Pelle’s ridiculous tongue-in-cheek third-person boasts — as they always do, even if the shtick starts to wear thin somewhere around two-thirds of the way in.

    Walking through Inman Square on Sunday night, on the way to pick up take-out from our favorite Indian place, and we lingered outside of our favorite book store (can you sense the Inman Square love here?) for a moment, stopped in our tracks by the odd occurrence of a Sunday night concert amid Lorem Ipsum’s awesomely inviting shelves of gently-worn, dusty classics, and non-classics - the Ipsum crew will happily place On The Road beside an unauthorized biography of Vanilla Ice.

    Ehhh, who really cares whether "Radio Nowhere" is any good or not? The really, really, really big huge news is that some ginormous pop star finally took the plunge: not the Stones, not U2, not Madonna, not Metallica .

    YOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUAA!


    BIRD FLU: tonight at Enormous Room

    Mr. Collipark, eight zillion kids with youtube accounts, four out of five bloggers, and Winnie the Pooh agree: teenage sensation Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat" (a/k/a "Superman That Ho") is officially the viral hit of 2007, has spawned a superhero dance craze that's even more fun than that whole Chicken Noodle Soup thing, and is probably the grimiest-sounding rap vocal ever to become a hit.

    DOWNLOAD: Big Digits and DJ Mark E. Moon, "Music is Magic (Live)"

    OTD leaked the studio version of this track last year, but if you’re relying on studio recordings to form your impressions of Boston party-rap saviors Big Digits, you’re missing 99.9 percent of the fun. Over the past year they've stepped their live game up considerably by adding Mark E.

    Thurston: Academy fight song

    It's not exactly news that as he's gotten older, Thurston Moore has found time in his life for more than Sonic Youth. When he's not reviewing noise records with Byron Coley, making noise records with people you've never heard of, or asking his daughter if she knows how to play that Dinosaur Jr song, he's apparently found time to record a proper follow-up to Psychic Hearts, the completely unexpected and awesome-beyond-belief (and recently remastered) solo album that all your Pitchfork-reading friends will tell you is secretly better than the last (insert any number from one to five) Sonic Youth records.

    The Hives, for Nike

    We've been marvelling these past few weeks that our old favourite band, the Hives, have managed to weather their sales-dip (unwarranted, as Tyrannosaurus Hives was fucking brilliant) without missing a beat: having fully embraced their commercial instincts, they made lemonade out of that Timbaland-collabo lemon by selling it to the WWE (see below) then snuck a sneak peak of their forthcoming single into a Nike commercial (see above).

    JT, "What Goes Around" at Boston Garden, 8/10/07

    We've reviewed Justin Timberlake enough that we didn't expect to have anything new to say about his show at the Garden last night, a return trip on a tour that Sharon has already gushed about anyways. Partly we wanted to see how the crowd makeup changes when he had a so-called rock band opening (answer: an even larger ratio boost, this time it appeared to be about 12:1 women).

    Insert obligatory joke here about Daft Punk playing at Brooklyn's house/ Lollapalooza's house/ Las Vegas' house / basically anywhere BUT our house. Or just watch the live footage of "Robot Rock," in Brooklyn:



    And, in case you missed it, Kayne's forgotten his anti-French dance music grudge and sampled Daft Punk - video evidence here:
