Thought the seaport isn't the best venue for really any artist, it is especially not good for a band of this magnitude. Not that Wire is a huge act, but their sound is. But wasn't so, last night at Manhattan's South Street Seaport. The band zipped through a set that kept most fans happy as they pulled from their long catalog. All in all it was a good show, considering the cost but if you enjoyed the evening, chances are a smaller venue would be even better. Photo care of Kevchino.

David Dye interviews the three Swedish artists that are currently on tour together. Lykke Li, El Perro Del Mar, Anna Ternheim sound really great in their World Cafe performance. Hear Lykke's cool new take on "Little Bit" here!
Hope to see you out at the Seaport where the punk scene inspired band, Wire will be performing. The band has been around since the late 70's but their new album Object 47 is due in July. Go to the show. It's free. Visit their myspace here.

Williamsburg via Philadelphia based band Aderbat is performing this Wednesday evening at Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn. We have heard a few tracks off their unreleased new record and all we can say is go to this show! This band is refreshing the indie rock scene by pouring real emotion into their tunes rather than worrying about hipness. And how hip is that?
See for yourself at their myspace.

The bands basically reformed after Petty called his old bandmates out of the blue. They were all unknown and toured with Petty on some dates last month.

In honor of the ticket that I had in my hand, and paid $61 for, please watch the video for "The Drugs Don't Work".
The two acts are colaborating this year at the Smirnoff Experience in Paris. It will take place on July 2 at La Cigale. Below from duranduran.com:
Duran Duran will perform a unique live set with Ronson for this exclusive, invite-only performance. Together, they will showcase specially re-worked versions of some of the band’s classic hits that will be created by Ronson, along with tracks from their critically-acclaimed new album, Red Carpet Massacre. Ronson & the Version Players will also be bringing Mark’s acclaimed live show to the event, performing songs from his hit album, Version. Simon LeBon will bring his vocal magic to Mark’s music as one of his featured guest vocalists.
