- In what should bring his "comeback" full circle, Kanye West will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 12. Everyone knows what happened last year and has made too many "Imma let you finish jokes" since then. You'll have to let us know how it goes; we'll be in Baltimore at the Panda Bear show that night.

- How much did Amazon.com's week-long $3.99 promotion help Arcade Fire reach the top of the charts? Of the 156,000 albums sold, 97,000 were digital purchases, with the vast majority of those through the Amazon offer.
