Labor Day Weekend has arrived and for me it is lining up to be a music filled one and without having to leave Las Vegas! But since it’s Friday, time for five nuggets of music news that grabbed my attention. Enjoy the holiday weekend and be safe.
- Head over to Daytrotter.com, one of today’s download sessions is none other than Slightly Stoopid! Super excited about this one and to see them with 311 on Saturday night.
- If you haven’t already, get your hands on Circles Around the Sun, the first studio album from Dispatch in over a decade.
- I officially have a date with music history. When I’m not sure and tickets I’ll have to get somehow as the Rolling Stones have announced they’ll play two shows before the end of 2012 at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center (where the Brooklyn Nets will play). Check out the item from Rolling Stone HERE.
- September is a ridiculous month for new albums and next week brings fresh music from Two Door Cinema Club (Beacon), Two Gallants (The Bloom And The Blight), Imagine Dragons (Night Visions), Elbow (Dead In The Boot), Matchbox Twenty (North), The Fresh & Onlys (Long Slow Dance), The Vaccines (The Vaccines Come of Age) and Animal Collective (Centipede Hz) as well as a heap of others.
- RIP Chris Lighty
