Under the Weather Edition.

Part of the Glastonbury lineup has been announced, according to Productshop, and the roster so far looks good.

--The White Stripes, Coldplay, The Who, Kylie Minogue, Bloc Party, New Order, Doves, Outkast, Athelete, Keane, Brian Wilson, Scissor Sisters, Kasabian, Paul Weller, Stereophonics, Mercury Rev, Gorillaz, The Chemical Brothers, The Concretes, Hot Hot Heat, The Subways, Super Furry Animals, Ian Brown, The Coral, The Dandy Warhols, Queens Of The Stone Age, Grandaddy, Embrace, The Killers, The Bravery, Hope Of The States, The Zutons, The Futureheads, Elbow, and The Tears--

Tickets apparently go on sale April 3rd. The fete will be held on June 24th-26th, and it'll cost ₤125.00.

Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono are gonna play together at Tonic? Weird kinda, right? But I'd go see it if tickets weren't surely gonna be ridiculously expensive. It's a benefit show to save the club, so they'll be asking a lot. No word yet how much, but it'll be going down on Feb. 19th. Ben Lee is playing there too at the end of the month, and tickets are on sale now.

Anybody read that article about the Montreal Music Scene in the Times yesterday? It was good. Gotta give the paper credit for NOT just making this another puff piece about the Arcade Fire's popularity, which would have been perfectly easy to do these days, but actually calling out the other influential bands coming from the emerging scene. Good read.

Pitchfork lists their best albums of the last...5 years today. Strangely, the #1 album of 2004, named so merely 5 or 6 weeks ago, has plummeted down to #45, despite the fact that the # 2 album last year stays up at a respectable #9. I have no problem with the influential zine spreading the hype around equally, but this is pretty silly. Also, the list falls into the age old trap of glorifying older work, even with such a small window of reference…8 of the top 10 albums listed came out in 2000 or 2001.

Don't really feel up for going down to Bowery tonight (Monday), but these tickets would be expensive to eat and I'd like to see the band. I'll see how I feel.
