And now on to today Indie News of the only bands that matters:

The Beastie Boys have answer the called to play the Fillmore Detroit

It was report last night briefly on the Detroit News web sight and begin reported everywhere today the "Beastie Boys" have added a gig in Detroit that will be taking place at the Fillimore Detroit {Formerly the state theater] on Monday September 24, tickets for that show will go on Sale this weekend, detail on that coming up, tickets will not come cheap they will cost [cue the Dermantic Chipmunk]

and from the same report it was also announced they will play in a exclusive Gala Event Instrumental Shows in the city in the near distance furture but that will be announced at a later date.

Fallout Contiuetin from the "Pearl Jam"/ATT webcast Flap

ATT have been doing alot of spinning about the Censored of Artists after they Censor part of Pearl Jam preformce from last week at Lollapalooza after lead singer Eddie Vedder sang a couple of anti-Bush lyrics into "Daguther".

ATT have expand it was a mistake on the company who was doing the web and said this is the only time this have ever happen and will nerve happen aging, after that respond was released,
an email to Wired News and other News Outlet said they have Censor before saying that they Censor "The Flaming Lips" and "The John Butler Trio" during the Bonnaroo webcast back in June.

The Lips was censor for talking about how much George Bush had screwed up, and "The John Butler Trio" was talking about the lack of response from the government during Hurricania Katrina, the E-mail was at both show and saw the webcast later and the sound did not cut out any other time during the gig.

but ATT is saying it did that because of "It's not our intent to edit political comments in webcasts on Unfortunately, it has happened in the past in a handful of cases. We have taken steps to ensure that it won't happen again.".

I bet you have not hear the last of this one.

On the Coming Soon File is reporting that fresh off there Lollapalooza set, Daft Punk who DJ in a great big Space tri-angle will released a live set of there gig in Paris back in Mid-June, it will be a ingle CD edition plus a two-disc set which features the show's encore, the yet unname C.D. will be out on late November.

Now this is a petition i fully endorse

Now on the weekend of August 4th on the Live from culture city concert post, i put up a concert from the wonderful Vancouver Dance-Punk band "You Say Party! We Say Die!", now that is the closest the band will come to the U.S., as you know back in the Fall of 2006 they have to force to scrub the West US dates because there was denie a P2 Visa just because they was not making engoght money money on there past tour.

Worst yet there bass players and founding member Stephen O'Shea was grilled for five hours after he try fooling boarder resulting in a five years ban for O'Shea and the rest of the band, so they can not get back in the U.S.A. until 2011.

there immigration lawyers and the musician's federation have been trying to clear this up but so far there is Nothing to report, so last week one of there fans put up a petition at to let them know the band is want to be seen in the US, if you want to sing the petition to let the band play in the U.S., you can find the pititon on the Above headline of you can finf the link on the top of the page on the Menu on your right.

Oh, By the way they will have there 2nd album"Lose all time" is out tomorrow, and they will do the tour in nearby Windsor at the Avalon Front[300 Ouellette Avenue, Windsor, ON] on September 15th.

Huey Lewis and the News get a total indie rework

For a lot of you fans you used to be fans of "Huey Lewis and the News" you be happy to know that is reporting that a tribute album is in the work on yet a unnamed label that will be released sometime in 2008 among the bands who are playing the album "Apostle of Hustle" doing "I Want a New Drug", "Catfish Haven"feeling "The Heart of Rock and Roll", "My Brightest Diamond" taking on "Naturally"and "Oh No! Oh My!"singing "Finally Found a Home"

And what is up to "Amy Winehouse"

Amy Winehouse have to cancelled some gigs last week and had to pulled out of her opening spot Rolling Stones in Germany after she was hospitalised for at what they say was Exhaustion at first but now it been reported that she had drink and drugs binge that lead her into the hostpail after intervened by her husband, her parents, and her in-laws, She OK but she need to rest before she goes on the road, so that mean she probable need more rehab.
