  • Radiohead’s Thom Yorke is playing a warm-up gig to a pair of weekend shows with his unnamed side band featuring Flea and Nigel Godrich tonight at Los Angele’s Echoplex. “It’s not that big, it’ll be total chaos and its kind of a rehearsal but … if you are near by … below is a link to get tickets,” he posted on RH’s Website.

  • Not to be outdone by the holiday-spirited Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond will release A Cherry Cherry Christmas on October 13th. And check this out: the LP features a cover of Adam Sandler’s “The Chanukah Song” produced by new Guns n’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba.
  • The Bravery are gearing up for the release of Stir the Blood on November 10th with their video for “Hatefuck.” Warning: it’s a bit disturbing.
  • StubHub has partnered with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and will donate any proceeds from tickets sold to the Hall’s two epic anniversary shows at Madison Square Garden to the museum.
