      SHAKEY GRAVES

      Have you seen the brand new Shakey Graves video? “Dearly Departed” is taking big jumps up the charts at AltBuffalo! Don’t miss the chance to see them on March 31 at Town Ballroom!

      DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE

      Death Cab For Cutie played their new song “Black Sun” for David Letterman last night!

      COOLEST CLIP OF THE WEEK

      When Kurt Cobain first came up with the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” riff, he didn’t think he had anything that special. “It was such a cliched riff,” he said. “It was so close to a Boston riff. When I came up with the guitar part, Krist [Novoselic] looked at me and said, ‘That is so ridiculous.’” Watch below as the band has a little fun at the Reading Festival in 1992 playing a bit of “More Than A Feeling” before their own massive hit.

       

      BLACK KEYS

      Black Keys are on Austin City Limits this weekend and are performing the new AltBuffalo single “Weight Of Love.”

      MORE BLINK NEWS

      Another day, another bit of Blink-182 news. To refresh your memory: On Monday, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker said they were going to perform at the upcoming Musink Tat Fest in March without founding member Tom DeLonge because Tom had quit Blink, again. Then, Tom posted a note saying he was shocked by the news and had never quit and then reportedly posted (and deleted) a tweet claiming that he and Hoppus were thinking about firing Travis at one point. Today, Mark had this to say: “It’s weird to me, it’s weird to Travis. I think honestly, from everything we’ve heard from Tom’s manager and from what Tom has done—and is not doing even more so—Tom doesn’t want to be in Blink,” Hoppus said. “It’s obvious. That’s fine. But it’s so confusing to get emails from people saying, ‘Tom’s out indefinitely, Tom’s not going to do these things, Tom doesn’t want to record, doesn’t want to tour, doesn’t want to do anything,’ and then at the same time say, [adopts shocked tone] ‘I never quit the band. I just said I wasn’t ever going to do anything again.’” Stay tuned to AltBuffalo for more updates!

      BLINK-182

      Blink-182's Travis Barker announced his 8th annual Musink Festival but the breaking news is the controversy that has developed within his own band!
