Conan comes to vinyl; Weezer to do "Pinkerton" tour?; Government Issue reunites

conanYou want this record, perhaps ironically.

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.

Pinkerton could be the most underrated album of the '90s. So good.
