Music Notes (July 28 – August 3)
On the first Wednesday/Thursday of the month, I will present you with at least one music-related news piece for each day of the week before that Wednesday or Thursday. Starting now.
Did that make sense?
SATURDAY, JULY 31- Lady Gaga doesn’t boycott Arizona like everyone else (everyone else being Conor Oberst of “Bright Eyes” fame, Kanye West, and many more artists over at Sound Strike.) Instead, she protests at her show, while still giving her “little monsters” the show they’ve been waiting for. More details here. (Also, hear Bright Eyes’ protest song about SB 1070 after the jump.)
SUNDAY, AUGUST 1- This didn’t actually happen on August 1st, but Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys got married on July 31! Look at some pictures and envy Alicia’s dress here.
MONDAY, AUGUST 2- Everyone decides to go on tour. No, really.
- LCD Soundsystem go on tour with Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells
- Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are going on tour
- Black Mountain and Black Angels tour
- Isobell Campbell and Mark Lanegan… you get the picture.
