Kanye/Jay-Z album is imminent; Courtney Love sued for Twitter defamation; D.C. Record Fair returns in February

By David Malitz

jay-z yeezyOh good, Kanye is back in the news.

- You didn't think just because the calendar turned that Kanye West would just disappear, did you? His long-rumored collaborative album with Jay-Z, "Watch the Throne," is due out this week. Hopefully you and your Twitter feed are ready...

- Courtney Love is being sued for defamation of character thanks to some vitriolic tweets directed at designer Dawn Simorangkir. Among other things, Love called Simorangkir "a drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault." And now Simorangkir wants some cash. After my review of her 9:30 Club show, Love called me sexist on Twitter. Maybe that entitles me to about $3.50?

- Local vinyl freaks, rejoice. The semi-annual D.C. Record Fair returns on Feb. 13. This time it's not actually in D.C., but in Arlington, Va., at the new Artisphere complex.

Wow! I had never heard of this guy, but I thought I was listening to an incarnation of the Cramps. Then I looked him up and found he died a few years ago. Dang.
