    • IF YOU GO:
      Daniel Handler and Stephin Merritt
      performing songs from The Tragic Treasury: Songs inspired by A Series of Unfortunate Events

    It's the YouTube video Panic! at the Disco's management doesn't want you to see (or so our spies tell us). Shot during their Clash of the Punk Cabaret Titans Tour last summer, Dresden Dolls and Panic! teamed up to shoot a silent-film-style short film in which Amanda and Brian plot to murder the Panic! kids in a fit of jealousy (with a piano no less!), only to be foiled by a gaggle of fans played by openers the Hush Sound.

    Until footage of the Croc Doctor getting impaled on a stingray hits YouTube, we've dug up the hottest track on the internerd. In case you've been living under a rock, here's the deal: British performance/graffiti/culturejam artist Banksy snuck 500 copies of a doctored Paris Hilton album into UK stores disguised as the actual album

    Since DaCapo's now including blog posts and eMusic promo essays in the annual Best Music Writing anthology, can we also nominate a message board thread?
