Sterling at the Yo La Tango show on Wednesday and he clear one thing up that Liz will program two night at the 2nd Ave. Stage and May DJ a night at City fest which would be awesome and it would be cool if we full the whole 2nd Ave. to show our support For Liz.

Speaking of Cityfest on Monday it was announce to the Detroit Free Press a new band have just sing to played the main stage at Comerica Cityfest.

Let Me Give you a few clues before i can give you the Name fo that band.

- this band was from in 1968 in the Chicago suburb of Rockford, Illinois

yes the same jack white who in the white stripes, according to the band that Jack played bass on a bunch, contributes lead guitar to three tunes, and is lead vocal on "Some Other Guy", plus he also backup vocals on several other tracks.

Front man John Szymanski said "should be out in about two months" which is the 10th anniversary of the label that released it Italy Records.

when we heard it will let you know.

on To the Other news outside the 313

In addition, the new single "Heart It Races", as well as several different remixes and cover versions of the song, will be released on CD, 12" and digital formats on June 5.

And According to, it look like that the run of the animation cartoon band "Gorillaz" will hid out at a sercet location for the near distact future, the main voice for the band Damon Albarn told BBC Radio 2 that the soundtrack score to a film by Monty Python director and actor Terry Gilliam will be the last time you ever Hear 2D, Noodles, Russel, and Murdoc, saying "there won't be another pop record." Albarn have been busy with his other side project "the Good, the Bad, and the Queen" and may be the reunion of Blur.

i have added a a listen of the New album that are steaming on Line right now before you by it the new section of the site is called the listen booth and that where you find the new album from "Arctic Monkeys", "Midnight Movies" Western Michigan "The Icicles" and "The Winterpills" all of them are the full album for free and steaming and depending on the sight where is coming from [myspace or a E-card] it will be up for one to three weeks.

May be it me or if i one of the first Local blogs to mention this but was have a title and almost a date for "the New Pornographers" New album since 2005 and from what Front Man Carl Newman telling Billboard that the album will be “more epic” than Twin Cinema.

The Album will be tentatively titled "Challengers" and they are looking at a released date of August 21th on Matador Records.

Also coming soon the second album from the U.K. band "The Magic Numbers" who will released the album Those The Brokes" July 3rd on Capitol.

And Guess what Eddie Argos and his band Mate from Art Burt will be back in session with there New Album"It's a Bit Complicated" out on June 26th, but if you can wait that long they will be released in there DVD called "Talking to the Kids" on May 22nd.

they have a track listing for the album here:

1. "Pump Up the Volume"
2. "Direct Hit"
3. "St. Pauli"

And there good news for fans of the Two Gallants, all charges were drop against There drummer Tyson Vogel resluting the incendiend at a houston Night club back in October when a Police was investgaing a nosie Compalnt Tyson Vogel was chage with interference with a police after the band would not stop playing there gig.

the band post this on there websight:

"the misdemeanor charge of interference with a public servant has been dropped completely by the city of houston against tyson. the charges against greg who shot the videos have been dropped as well. it dragged on with five non-trial court appearances and then someone decided to actually look at the video. oh yes, that video which showed a very large, maniacal officer tackling the band on stage in front of everyone for an alleged noise complaint. obviously there are worse injustices in the world, but this was really unfortunate. thank you everyone who spoke up and showed your support. many were people worried it was going to hurt the houston music scene and make other bands not want to go there. we can only tell you can count on the gallants coming back to houston very soon."

Now with all there legal probum over, they will now look at a released at there New EP call June 19th on Saddle Creek.

Live gig Review -Yo La Tango - The Majestic Theather - Midtown Detroit - April 18th, 2007

It Was Good and Mellow as one of my fave bands the NYC Band "Yo La Tango" play a really good 90 Minutes set at the Majestic Theater in Midtown Detroit.

They Started off the set with there classic From A Motel 6 and after that they really, really Jam out to a pretty good size crowd, as they played mostly from lated album "I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass" [yes kids, that is the title] it was mostly insermatl as they rock out to all they song the crowd was enjoying it, even if i don't all there songs they were really great as they play there song.

also when they did there encore they played on of my fave song "Sugarcube" from "I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One" also they have there opening band from "New Times Vikings" as they did some cover for two songs and that was fun to see.

they did come back for one more and it was a quite song as Drummer Georgia Hubley sang a song from a album which i cant remember the name of and it have a dance hall fell to it as i cam close up to the stage i saw a lot of the fans dance to a smooth song.

It was cool and it was mellow night all around.

The Opening band the Columbus,Ohio band "times new viking" was very fun to watch and listen to as they do there lo-fi Rock as they play song from "The Paisley Reich" which is on a indie label and new song for there debut on Matador Records.

So that is the report from the field in Detroit Culture City.

breaking culture news

Good Morning

Breaking Culture News

Sanjaya Done On America Idol

and we Begin this morning with news of America Idol least fave contestant ever the 17 year old kid from Federal Way, Washington, the One and only Sanjaya Malakar who people who can't stand the whole show together and found new light to ruin the show for crappy music to make More Crappy music down the road.

We keep voting him in week after week to show to prover that the indie kids have engouht for a over blown show, but tonight a from of music this blog sight can not stand "Country Music" have done Sanjaya in.

He was voted out of the crap show tonight after wounding up in the bottom two with of all people the Flint contestant LaKisha Jones who did not do well last night with the country music Format.

When Ryan Seacrest made the producer and the Judges happy when he said his name "I'm fine", "It was an amazing experience." he sang off to the Sunset by singing Bonnie Raitt - "Something to Talk About".

Minutes later the sight that began it all the Howard Stern run was this post:

"Well it couldn't last forever! Great work everyone on helping Sanjaya make the top 7, he's now the all time VFTW record holder. But as classic Worsters know, we always move on to someone new. Who will it be? Phil? Chris? Someone else? Sound off on the message board and let us know your opinion. We'll have an informal poll up soon to see what the general consensus is. It's so sad to lose our VFTW king, but we can't stop bugging the producers, they'd like that too much! So stay tuned and let's remember how much fun it was to help keep Sanjaya in the running for so long! Time to move on to Idol Gives Back, where the producers get corporations to donate money yet donate nothing out of their own ridiculously huge paychecks!"

Well All of Culture City gave it a good run for about the two weeks i did it
Howard Sten was a big help.

And Now that Idol will make the Next Star that will make millions sick to the ears

About the Blog sight, it been kind of discating this week to do the sight because i have been following the Shooting at Virginia Tech, that have been on everybody minds for the last few days and will be for the next few weeks.

I want everybody who follow indie music to keep the prayed of the victims and everybody at Virginia Tech University.

This is the story of how one New York nightclub came to be the spiritual home of disco. And part of its downfall. Boy George looks back on the most decadent disco in history: Studio 54, which opened its doors thirty years ago this April. It’s a tale of hedonism, ambition and sheer abandon that within three years was snuffed out forever. Forget punk, disco music is the most influential, popular and lasting cultural phenomenon from thirty years ago. Studio 54 became a symbol of that era, hugely popular yet short lived, democratic yet elitist, hedonistic yet self destructive. Outside its door, bondage trousers, safety pins and a well thumbed copy of the NME impressed no one.

Fridays - 4:03 PM

Michael Freedland presents a four-part series looking at the life of Frank Sinatra as seen through the eyes of those who knew him. This will not be a series featuring stars, the obvious names of a few remaining contemporaries who like to think some of Sinatra's glory will rub off on them. Instead, accompanied by appropriate music, Frank's biographer Michael Freedland will talk to people whose lives were influenced by him - even if he did not know it himself
