Dismemberment Plan to play Roots picnic; Christina Aguilera arrested; Bruise Cruise memories
- The year keeps getting better for local post-punk heroes Dismemberment Plan. After a very sold-out reunion tour, the Plan will play one of its highest profile gigs ever at the annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia on June 4. When the band played on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" back in January, Roots drummer Questlove tweeted: "If we got dsmbrmtpln for The Roots Picnic would longtime fans support? These [dudes] are tight!!!!" He followed through and now the band will join The Roots, Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Ariel Pink, Esperanza Spalding, Little Dragon, Yelawolf and more at what looks to be one of the best festivals of the year. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
- Christina Aguilera was arrested early Tuesday morning in Los Angeles for public intoxication. Her boyfriend was arrested for driving under the influence.
- Last week we talked to Katy Goodman of Vivian Girls about her upcoming adventures at sea as part of the inaugural Bruise Cruise festival. City Paper's Jonathan Fischer set sail and lived the tell the tale.
