Jack White gives College Lecture

Courtesy: Pitchfork According to NME, the University Philosophical Society at Dublin, Ireland’s Trinity College hosted a thoughtful chat with Jack White last night.

Sufjan Stevens to tour with BQE screenings

Courtesy: Pitchfork The BQE, Sufjan Stevens’ moderately insane CD/DVD/comic book/View-Master reel dedication to Brooklyn’s most consistently clogged highway, is out now.

Cymbals Eat Guitars get new bassist

Courtesy: If fresh-faced Staten Island indie formalist bashers Cymbals Eat Guitars looked a little different in this CMJ photo, your eyes weren’t playing tricks on you. The band’s MySpace page lists a new bassist, a fellow named Matthew Whipple. He replaces Neil Berenholz, who, according to CEG’s publicist, left the band amicably because he […]
