Roger Waters campaign angers Elliott Smith fans; Taylor Swift adds a second D.C. date; Unrest plays reunion gigs
By Ally Schweitzer
- Elliott Smith fans are steaming after street artists hired to promote Roger Waters's "The Wall" tour (coming to DC October 10th)
painted postered over a well-known Smith memorial in Los Angeles. The campaign's artists spray painted pasted a promotional poster over the Sunset Strip memorial, which pays tribute to the musician who committed suicide in 2003. Some are calling it a crass defacement; others say it's an organic evolution of the memorial, which has been painted over numerous times. Got an opinion? Leave it in the comments.
- Taylor Swift has added a second D.C. date to her "Fearless 2010" tour. The country pop star will play Verizon Center June 1st and 2nd. The June 2nd concert is sold out; tix for the 1st go on sale this Friday.
- Beloved local indie band Unrest will reunite for a few East coast gigs this summer, including a slot at the Teenbeat label's 26th anniversary show at the Black Cat on July 10th. Unrest, best known for the 1992 album "Imperial F.F.R.R.," is one of Teenbeat's best known bands and easily
Anderson's Mark Robinson's most famous. The musician (and Teenbeat founder) has been in a bunch of groups since the '80s but none whose reunion would create as much buzz outside of Washington. We heard about Unrest's reunion tour on Brooklyn Vegan.
