- *Sniffle* Whartscape has really grown up, guys. This year the Baltimore music fest celebrates its fifth birthday with a sprawling lineup of approximately 435 bands over three days. See the almost complete lineup here. Obvious highlights are Click Track favs Beach House, Double Dagger, No Age and Wye Oak, but sets from Oneohtrix Point Never and Ponytail are enough for me to fork over the train fare to B-more. Whatscape happens July 22nd-25th; tickets will be sold at and the True Vine record shop starting June 15th.

- The end of freedom as we know it?: Willie Nelson has chopped off his hair. Devastating as this is, hard-hitting questions must be asked, starting with: how soon until we see his hair on eBay? And when that non-profit group erects a statue of Nelson in front of Austin City Limits, will it be pigtailed or un-pigtailed? (Insert joke here about staying true to Nelson's roots, honoring his hair-itage, etc.)

- Alicia Keys is pregnant with her first kid and planning to marry producer Swizz Beatz. The couple, who have been together since at least 2008, initially kept their relationship under wraps while Swizz (real name Kasseem Dean) finalized his divorce from ex Mashonda Tifrere. But we're beginning to feel like Celebritology, so this post ends here.
