Conan comes to vinyl; Weezer to do "Pinkerton" tour?; Government Issue reunites
By David Malitz
- Remember a few months ago when Conan O'Brien and Jack White got all buddy-buddy? Now you can buy vinyl documentation of the event on a new 7" to be released on White's Third Man Records. "And They Call Me Mad?" features Coco's take on "Frankenstein," the b-side is White interviewing O'Brien.
- We know that Weezer's new album "Hurley" will be out next month and feature "Lost" star Jorge Garcia on the cover. But might they tour behind the upcoming reissue of much-beloved 1996 album "Pinkerton" instead? If guitarist Brian Bell has his way, yes.
- The final lineup of D.C. punk band Government Issue - John Stabb, Tom Lyle, J. Robbins, Pete Moffett) will reunite for a show to benefit local DJ Stereofaith, who is recovering from recent brain surgery. It will be Dec. 11 at the Black Cat; tickets go on sale Friday morning.
- On the heels of "Double Rainbow" and slowed-down Bieber the latest non-song song sensation is "The Bed Intruder Song," based on the now-famous Antoine Dodson viral video. It has reached as high as No. 25 on the iTunes charts and at last glance ranks 58th, nestled between T.I. and Shakira.
