Scissor Sisters come to D.C.; Conor Oberst pens open letter to Arizona; George Michael arrested again
U.K. Disco champs Scissor Sisters will visit the U.S. this fall, including an Aug. 23 stop at Constitution Hall. They'll be promoting their new album, "Night Work," a party of a record that serves as a nice return to form after "Ta-Dah." Tickets go on sale Friday, and cross them off any Virgin Mobile FreeFest guess lists.
- Many musicians have taken to boycotting Arizona in the wake of the state's new immigration law. Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine organized Sound Strike and was joined by the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Calle 13 and My Morning Jacket. Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes has taken it a step further, penning an open letter to Arizona concert promoter Charlie Levy, explaining his actions. "I fear that if we return to business as usual (under the guise of some civic movement) that this will all devolve into the typical grandstanding that is political activism in music," he says.
- George Michael was arrested again, which sort of qualifies as news? He crashed into a London building and was deemed unfit to drive.
