Peaches' wheelchair show, on the road! Peaches in Gonzales' Ivory Tower...ummm, saw the premiere screening of it, or rather, had a nice nap. link

Most annoying song of 2010? link

 

The newer-ish twitter dude, Discographies, is awesome; portraying a definitive guide to an artist's body of work (studio albums only) in 140 characters. link

 

Barbara impressed us earlier this year with their cover of Kid CuDi's Pursuit of Happiness. They released their debut EP, Robopopironica, earlier this month, so go get it. link

Gwen Stefani remarks that the new No Doubt album, due out later this year, is influenced by the "worst of the 80s", particularly one-hit wonders. This is intriguing, but more importantly, well anticipated, as it's been 9 years since they've put out an original album. More details here.


Last night, Salt-n-Pepa played a sold out show at Sydney's Enmore theater, which by all accounts, looked to be super rad. Watch a video of the chicness here.


Barbara, a three-piece electro-pop folk outfit from Los Angeles, covered Kid CuDi's Pursuit of Happiness, and yep, it's just as great as y ou think it could be. Listen close for an Iron and Wine sample, with extra hums from Sam Cooke. Beaston approved and yours for free below!

 

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings announce a second NYC on their tour at the legendary Apollo Theater. Tickets for the May 1 show will be available here.

 

Groove Armada are playing Webster Hall on March 24, in support of their new album, Black Light, which sees a release next Tuesday. Tickets can be obtained here, and there's a free remix of their most rad track, Paper Romance, below.
