Today's Hotness: Weekend Speed Round

TV On The Radio>> Wowsers -- Interscope labelmates Yeah Yeah Yeahs and TV On The Radio are playing a free show at Boston's City Hall Plaza Thursday Aug. 10 at 6PM, according to Music Slut here.

>> Someone's been pretending to be Bob Mould on MySpace. Now Bob mad, Bob smash. Apropos of nothing, former Archers of Loaf/Crooked Fingers honcho Eric Bachmann is starting to look like Bob Mould -- check the picture at this Billboard item.

>> Carl Wilson here tantalizes fans/readers with the prospect of a new musical project over at Zoilus [Update: Read Frank's comment for evidence of my feeble foible, and for an awesome band name idea -- Too Many Carls].

>> Here are pics of The Cure in the studio earlier this month working on their forthcoming release, expected to street on or around Halloween.

>> The kids on the street here say the new Gorilla Biscuits songs leave a lot to be desired.

>> The New York Times discovers minimal techno here.

Carl Wilson isn't in the New Pornographers, he's the guy who runs Zoilus. You're thinking Carl Newman. Too many Carls.

Gah! What a rookie move... I don't know why I never put two and two together on that... Or two and one, I guess. thanks Frank!

Oh, we Canadian Carls, we all look alike. Even when we are in totally different parts of the country.

The musical project to which I was referring was not my own. Although there's an outside chance that there might be one of those, as well, someday.

You and Frank should form a Canadian blogger supergroup! Sorry about the gaffe. I think I made the assumption from my very first read, despite being a fan of Mr. Newman's since the release of Superconductor's "The Strip Oracle" during my college days.
