– As you probably noticed via our exclusive tweet over the weekend, Massive Attack will be coming to The Fox on October 29 for a show with Thievery Corporation. The presale starts tomorrow, August 4 at 10 a.m. (password: RIVAL).
– In other exciting show announcement news, the funnest party of the year will probably be at The Tabernacle on October 4, when LCD Soundsystem play with Sleigh Bells. Shame they won’t be joined by Hot Chip, as they will on other dates, shown here on Paste. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 6 at 10 a.m.
– And in Sad Show Announcement News, we’ve heard that Atlanta’s premier psychobilly group The Hot Rods will be calling it a day after their last show at The Clermont Lounge on Thursday, August 5. The band’s Facebook page has the details.
– Finally, congrats to Athens musician, producer and all-round cool guy David Barbe, who was just named interim director for UGA’s music business program.
