2010 Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series Lineup Announced

So much good music news to share today. A lot in the vein of summer concert series lineups being announced, and hey, we're all for that, especially when they come in the form of free and friggin' amazing. The latest set I've got my eye on is the Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series which takes place in Brooklyn.

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.
