Okay, we're off to Norman, OK to see Joanna Newsom perform this evening, so here's a quick rundown of some of the stuff I found at least mildly interesting today:
Pitchfork has "exclusive" videos of the Raconteurs and Cat Power on Austin City Limits. We were at both tapings so we can verify their greatness.
Marathonpacks shares his thoughts on Jandek's rare performance the other night in Indianapolis.
So Much Silence treats us all to an awesome 12-track "Q-Tip mix". Side A can be found here, and Side B is here.
White Denim has two new songs on their myspace page. "ieiei" is especially great. We saw these guys play the other night, and they exceeded my expectations. One of the most charged, filler-free shows I've seen this year.
This kid might be a pretty good running back one day.
