  • Yeah Yeah Yeahs have quietly replaced Beastie Boys at Austin City Limits, an eagle-eyed Stereogum reader noted. Karen O and Co. also replaced the Beasties (who nixed festival dates due to Adam Yauch’s cancer treatment) at Lollapalooza; Tenacious D will fill in at Outside Lands.

  • Canadian Kiss fans in Oshawa, Ontario, won an online contest guaranteeing them a gig on the band’s fall tour and were shocked to see their city missing from the itinerary announced earlier this week. But the Toronto Sun reports the band is adding a pair of October dates to the schedule to honor the commitment.
  • A script about the life of Beatles manager Brian Epstein called A Life in a Day has been acquired by producer David Permut, Variety reports.
  • Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump spent a few hours in jail last night after being picked up by L.A. cops for an outstanding warrant for driving without a license. The singer-guitarist was held on $15,000 bail, TMZ reports. Get a look at more rocker mug shots here.
