Panic! At The Disco and Walk The Moon Fight Westboro Baptist

The Gospel Tour, featuring headliner Panic! At The Disco and OurStage members Walk The Moon, has seen the universally reviled Westboro Baptist “Church” appearing at recent shows to protest the bands’ insufficient level of hatred for other human beings or something. Both bands are turning that frown upside-down by donating to human rights charities. PATD pledged to donate $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for each WBC brainwashed dipshit protestor, but when only 13 showed up, the band bumped it up to $1,000, plus a portion of their merchandise sales. For their part, Walk The Moon has pledged the profits from their night’s merch sales to the youth group Everyone Is Gay.

So…keep it up, WBC.

KahBang Festival Relocated To Portland, ME

Our friends at the KahBang Music & Art Festival last week announced a rather sudden change of venue, relocating the entire festival from Bangor, ME, where it has been held since its inception six years ago, to Portland. Organizers insist that the move was essential to the survival of the festival, and point to the advantages of the shift, including a significant increase in lodging options.

With headliners including St. Vincent, DMX, and Wheatus, not to mention our pals in Late Cambrian, those of us in the Boston area are not complaining much about suddenly being 130 miles closer to the festival, which also includes a film portion, to be held at Portland’s Longfellow Square, and an arts portion, to be held at the city’s Community Television Network. The music will be spread around familiar venues like the State Theatre, the Big Easy, and Port City Music Hall. (h/t Vanyaland)

PyInfamous On CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown”

PyInfamousWe’re just catching up on some reality TV lately and were psyched to see PyInfamous, the grand prize winner of our 2011 Coors Light Search For The Coldest, on the fantastic Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown on CNN.

The coldest MC we know was featured in the episode in which Bourdain explores the culture, music, history, and of course, the food of the Mississippi Delta. PyInfamous’ “Look Here” was featured, and the rapper contrasted race in the South with the North: “I think there are some deeply ingrained problems in Mississippi that are connected to a very ugly past that we share with some other Southern states. However, I think as far as when we talk about racism expressed through a classist lens? I think Mississippi and New York are on par.”

Well worth checking out.

The Dear Hunter’s Summer Dates

The Dear Hunter, a.k.a. Casey Crescenzo, stopped by our studios a while back and performed some incredible songs in an exclusive session, which we videoed and posted online (scroll down to select his session). We were floored by what he could do with just a guitar and his voice, and when we got to hear the same songs at a show with a full band… well, let’s just say we can’t recommend it enough.

Lucky for all of us that The Dear Hunter is on tour for the next couple of months, with dates ranging far and wide. See the tour routing below, and be sure to check out some of the exclusive OurStage session, which comes complete with free audio downloads.

Jesse Terry’s Endless Tour

Jesse Terry, the hardest working singer/songwriter in singer/songwriter-dom, seems to live on the road. In an uncertain music business where we fret about and debate the best way to reach the most fans with the least amount of effort, he’s out there constantly, a man with a guitar, selling his fantastic songs the old fashioned way – one town at a time. Terry is currently in the middle of a stretch of East Coast dates that take up the month of July, so look for a town near you in the list below. www.jesseterrymusic.com

HAIM Celebrates Seven With My Song 5, Featuring ASAP Ferg

haim my song 5The HAIM hype has inevitably settled a bit, but as CoS points out, they’ve been a band for seven years now and are very likely immune to the ups and downs at this point. The three sisters (who joined OurStage back when they were just getting going) are celebrating this milestone with a new version of their album track “My Song 5,” this one featuring ASAP Ferg. Check out the song on HAIMtheblog. Word is that a new album is imminent, but details are yet to be revealed.

The New Shellac Is Coming!

dudeincredibleshellacSeven years after their last album, 2007′s Excellent Italian Greyhound, Chicago’s Shellac will release their sixth studio album, Dude Incredible, on September 16th via Touch and Go. The band – Steve Albini, Bob Weston, and Todd Trainer – are famously ultra-informal about touring, recording, performing, and, well, being a band, as illustrated by their official Touch and Go bio: “While there is no specific coordination between Shellac’s record releases and touring schedules, you can expect the band to tour at its usual sporadic and relaxed pace…Shellac will have a new LP anytime between now and the future.” And they remain beloved, especially in the indie rock community, for their integrity and minimalist approach to music making. Watch them in action at 2009′s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, performing what looks to be the new album’s first track. (h/t CoS)

Track listing:

01.Dude Incredible
02. Compliant
03. You Came In Me
04. Riding Bikes
05. All The Surveyors
06. The People’s Microphone
07. Gary

Those Mockingbirds Release ‘Penny The Dreadful’ LP

penny-large mockingbirdsIt’s July the 1st, and for us, that means summer is in full swing. We’ve been so busy that the season has snuck up on us, and here we are without an album of the summer to call our own yet. Well, contender number one has just dropped. It’s called Penny the Dreadful and it’s by our old friends Those Mockingbirds. New Jersey’s finest have been building a formidable set of songs for this, their debut LP, and it is worth the wait. It’s rock and roll that revels in the guitars, drawing inspiration as much from current modern rock as from the great melodic guitar slashers from the ’90s, including Stone Temple Pilots (with better lyrics) and the often overlooked Hum. Get it on iTunes now – it could be your go-to summer rocker. thosemockingbirds.com
