Word on the street is that Girl Talk will be playing MusicFestNW in early September, and My Morning Jacket will be playing Edgefield the same night. I don't understand why MMJ would be touring again with nothing new to support, but it should have other west coast tour implications. The last time I offered "word on the street" news, more than one person replied, "tell us something we don't already know," so if you happen to know this already, fuck off.
MMJ is playing out here this summer as well so it certainly would make sense. I think they're kind of at the point in there career where they don't really need to be promoting anything to turn. Hell, it's probably going to be better if they aren't based on their last two albums...
They didn't two years ago either. I don't think they were supporting a new release when they headlined Sasquatch.
Saw Pulp last night. Absolutely amazing show. I thoroughly enjoyed their Coachella live stream, but this show was much different. Mr. Cocker was very, very drunk, and he went on Wayne-Coyne-ily between songs. But unlike with Mr. Coyne, I welcomed his commentary as it was entertaining and hilarious. During their first encore, they played "Glory Days" for the first time during their reunion. The guitarist who isn't Mark Webber (I forget his name) played with a broken hand. Pretty impressive. The show was 2 hours and 15 minutes, and they could have kept going all night. So much fun.
Absolutely awesome show. We didn't get "Paranoid Android," but we did get "Kid A," "The National Anthem," "Climbing Up the Walls," "Karma Police," "There There.," "Myxomatosis.," "Everything In Its Right Place," "The Daily Mail," "Idioteque," (which was much more amazing live than I ever could have imagined) and the tour premieres of "I Might Be Wrong" and "Planet Telex." Great show.
I don't think it's very surprising there's no webcast for artists like Radiohead or Jeff Mangum, but Dr. Dre seems to to be launching a "comeback" of sorts with these two sets. Plus, with Eminem and Warren G on board and Dre's interest in Kendrick Lamar, I would think he would go for all the hype and exposure he can get.
Of possible inclusions, I'm especially hoping for "Street Spirit (Fade Out)," "Airbag," "Paranoid Android," "Subterranean Homesick Alien," "Karma Police," "Everything In Its Right Place," "The National Anthem," "Pyramid Song," "The Amazing Sounds of Orgy," "There There.," "15 Step," "Bodysnatchers," "Weird Fishes," "The Daily Mail," and "Separator."
