Peter, Bjorn, and John are going on tour, including 4 stop in Chicago. Read about it on COS.

Brooklyn Vegan posted a bunch of photos from last Friday’s Death Cab for Cutie show at Metro.

You can watch the video for Sondre Lerche’s “Private Caller” over at Stereogum.

The Hold Steady is playing Metro on August 25, 2011. I already bought my tickets, so excited.

I’m getting really stoked about this Asian Man Records party next month. I’ve been listening to the Broadways all day. I also found some really great videos of their live shows over on YouTube:

That Our Band Could Be Your Life Show is up on NPR. Definitely worth a look.

Death Cab For Cutie was great on Friday. Here’s the Trib review and here’s┬áthe COS review. I hadn’t seen them in 8 years but they were awesome. They played 25 songs and did a great job of giving each album its due. I am really glad I went because that’s probably the last time I’ll see them, that is unless they play Metro again.

Speaking of Death Cab, their new album is streaming up at NPR.

Also, The Lonely Forest did a good job of opening up for Death Cab. They’ll be back in town on June 21, 2011 at the Hideout.

Wow this show at Bowery Ballroom last night seems amazing, Ted Leo, Titus Andronicus, St. Vincent and a bunch of other bands playing covers. Check it out on COS.

Death Cab at Metro is tomorrow. I’m really excited. I’ve been listening to Death Cab live shows all day to prepare myself.

Let us not forget that the Lonely Forest is opening. Baeble recently posted a video of one of their shows in Austin.

I really wish the Rapture was coming:
