Beastly Bits #43

We're back in the 3 hours of sleep per night mode...also known as "hey beast, get your butt ready for the Austin SXSW radness you're about to dive into this week" functioning state of mind. I am already thoroughly spent, yet 100% excited for the cool to unfurl.


Don't worry...you'll be taken care of throughout my absence. Check out the banner at the top of the page for more info. Also, updates will be provided here...(for lack of another better word) provided I find the time to get my Austin act together.


Had a conversation last week that Lady Gaga is on the fast track to a nervous breakdown or emotional meltdown due to her hectic tour and promo schedule. Lo and behold, the lass suffered a bout of stage exhaustion (?) at her weekend gig in New Zealand. Watch her lethargic performance of Bad Romance, in which the lady lays on the stage and barely makes it through the number. Yikes.

Bloc Party's Kele Okereke has revealed that he will be playing a solo show as part of this year's Ibiza Rocks gig series. The ProdigyFlorence And The MachineDizzee Rascal and The Courteeners are among the other acts set to play shows on the island at the summer fest. More info here.


DJ Z-Trip is headlining the Sahara tent (THE dance tent) Saturday night at Coachella, and we've got his mix of Chic's Le Freak ready to pump you up. Grab it a short scroll down.

Beastly Bits #31

The rain continues to pour down in NYC and with it, a storm of new material continues to drop into our laps. We're ok with it.


Pop your umbrellas, we're in for a shower of songs and sweet news bits!


The Courteeners, Editors and Noah & The Whale have been added to the Isle Of Wight Festival line-up. They join Jay-Z, Vampire Weekend and The Strokes at the June event. Tickets here.

MissOmniMedia has a great feature on Holy Ghost! Read the piece here then jump a spell down for a remix from the NYC DJ-duo that we won't ever quit playing.


If you're going to SXSW, be sure to hit up the FILTER/Dickies parties. Great lineups, a taco truck and live poster printing. RSVP is free here.


Tickets for the Little Dragon show on March 27 at Mercury Lounge go on sale this Friday at noon. VV Brown, who we saw last week, supports. More info at this link.

In a moment of guilty pop pleasure, I'm giving you a free remix of Timbaland and Katy Perry's If We Meet Again, as gifted to us by the UK's Loose Cannons. Their Blame It On Rio Mix makes us forget the two joined forces for the original.
