Bits and Bobs: T.I., Al Pacino, Phil Spector, Andre 3000, Squarepusher, Deerhunter

– If you haven’t heard by now, Atlanta might just have a new hometown hero. Rapper/jail bird T.I. helped talk a man off the ledge of a building in Midtown yesterday afternoon. Atlanta Magazine’s ATL Intel blog has more on the story, with reactions from T.I. and the Atlanta Police Department.

– Al Pacino is continuing his foray into playing odd real-life characters with a film about scary-but-legendary producer Phil Spector. The New York Times has the story.

Drowned In Sound is reporting that a collaboration between techno Brit Squarepusher and Andre 3000 is inching closer to reality. We’re expecting it to sound mad and brilliant.

– NPR recorded Deerhunter’s recent performance at Washington, D.C.’s 9.30 Club, and it’s up for you to listen to HERE.
