Elephant 6 film gets proper release; DMV hip hop author has book signing; concert ticket sales continue to fall flat

By Ally Schweitzer

- Fabulous news for devoted fans of indiepop label Elephant 6: There will finally be a DVD release of "Major Organ and Adding Machine," the surreal silent film starring personalities from the cultish label's roster. Orange Twin will release the film with a bunch of special features in September.

- Author Sidney Thomas will be signing copies of his new book "Diamonds in the Raw," a historical account of D.C. area hip hop, this Saturday from 12-2 p.m. at The Literary Joint near Prince George's Plaza.

- The music industry is still looking down the barrel of a slow and miserable summer: concert ticket sales continue to lag nationwide, with several artists (Christina Aguilera, the Eagles) scrapping their summer tours altogether. Analysts say unreasonable ticket prices, pricey concessions and traffic levels are keeping people at home in the warmer months. Not that there aren't some bright spots in concert ticket sales. Who's safe from the malaise? Justin "Iron Man" Bieber, Taylor "Can Do No Wrong" Swift, and Lady "Even I'm Trying to Get a Ticket to Her Verizon Center Show" Gaga.
