News Dump: Friday 6.24.11



Howdy Ya’ll! Here’s your News Dump for Friday June 24, 2011!


The Pitchfork Music Festival has released the set times for the 3 day extravaganza. You can find all that info on their website.


Stephen Colbert and Jack White’s Third Man Records have released a 7 single Charlene II (I’m Over You). Fans of Colbert and The Black Belles (who play on the single) can purchase it on the Third Man Records website. Check out the performance from The Colbert Report below. I think this is pretty cool simply because it shows that Jack White has a sense of humor. Which is more than I can say for Prince.




True Blood fans will be happy to know that Neko Case and Nick Cave recorded a duet cover of  The Zombies She’s Not There for the first episode of the upcoming season. You can check the song out over at the KCRW blog.


Two legends (in their own right) passed away today; Peter Falk, TV’s Columbo, and comic book legend Gene Colan, Eisner Award winning artist on Marvel Comics Daredevil, Tomb of Dracula, and Captain America.


There’s a new biopic in the work, this time featuring Pet Sounds mastermind Brian Wilson. I remember there already being 2 TV movies about The Beach Boys, The Beach Boys: An American Family (2000) and Summer Dreams: The Story of The Beach Boys (1990) starring Bruce Greenwood as Dennis Wilson. It’s been about a decade so I guess it’s time to make another one.


Maps and Atlases have been added to the Middlewest Music Festival lineup with more to come soon.


It seems as though Lupe Fiasco isn’t the only rapper to have issues with his label. Drake has lashed out against Universal for forcing the take down of two tracks from his website. [via Billboard]
