For DCist. Earlier in the week. I'm a bit behind over here. Too many overtimes.

Had this song in my head for days. Raphael Saadiq, take a bow.

Sorry for disappearing the last few days. Been busy at work and at home. All my spare time has been taken up by all the overtime in the Celtics / Bulls series. Seriously.

I spent the weekend shooting Kings of Leon and Fall Out Boy / 50 Cent for washingtonpost.com.

Also, I got interviewed by the Washington Examiner. They are obviously out of interesting people to talk to.

Talk soon.

I have a million saved items in my Bloglines account. Here's my attempt to clear some of them out.

Reality check.

Yankees tickets: too expensive.

Who Shot Rock: Photographers of Rock and Roll - coming to Brooklyn later this year.

Elaborate pls.

11 greatest Sesame Street guest performances. Did I already link to this?

Wired: Tweetie is a beautiful, slick and intuitive app that meets and exceeds the high standards set by its mobile predecessor. We love it, and we'll go as far as to say that Tweetie will create a significant impact on Twitter as a whole.

Fluxblog mixtape essentials: Archers of Loaf, Blur, Phoenix, Wu Tang and Stereolab. I was also going to link to his recently posted PJ Harvey one, but it appears he took it down. More here.

If you don't have the Radiohead at Outside Lands bootleg, see if this link still works.

New Jens Lekman!

More Papercuts.

Dan The Automator produced the new Kasabian album? Really? Interesting.

WFMU Launches the Free Music Archive.

Listening to Swoon, the new album by Silversun Pickups. Sounds amazing on headphones, but this thing is way overproduced, so much so that the songs and melodies get buried under everything they are throwing at you.

Honestly I was too busy running around taking photos to write up yesterday's free concert on the mall. So instead I will point you to Josh's Washington Post review, Dave's Flaming Lips review from Post Rock and Amanda's excellent (and spot on) recap on DCist.

As for the Lips, they were a tad underwhelming. After opening with "Race For The Prize" they played slowed down versions of their next three or four songs and lost any momentum they had. Long pauses in between songs, etc. It wasn't until the last bit of the set that the audience got the sturm and drang they had been waiting all day for. But when the Lips decided to turn it up a notch, they were spectacular.

WayneCoyne-1

Also, I got to chat a bit with Wayne backstage. Nicest guy ever. Answered every question asked of him and was just generating good vibes everywhere he went. Respect.

DJ Spooky-1583

DJ Spooky's set got cut short, which was a shame, because he was killing it mixing Radiohead, Jimi Hendrix and MLK Jr. into one big mash-up. Sadly, moe got a full set. It was 35 minutes but seemed three times longer. Ugh.

I was on assignment for Washingtonian, so head over there to see my photos from yesterday.
