Beach House have announced a string of North American tour dates, scheduled for late spring and early summer.

Of all the statements to come from the office of the Presidency in recent months, the new controversy surrounding Melania Trump’s $39 Zara military jacket feels like an incredibly low point. Printed with the phrase “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?,” the jacket was just the perfect attire for visiting children separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border thanks to Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration stance. In the days since the controversy, many have appropriated the jacket’s message into a form of protest, and at a Pearl Jam concert in Milan, Eddie Vedder’s wife Jill sported her own version of the garment that read “Yes We All Care. Y Don’t U?” The Vedders also took a moment to celebrate their

Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley has been sued for sexual harassment by James Frost-Winn, a former member of Tinsley’s side project band Crystal Garden. Frost-Winn, a Seattle-based trumpet player, accuses Tinsley of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and long-term grooming stemming from their meeting in San Francisco in 2007 when he was an 18-year-old homeless man. Frost-Winn is seeking $9 million in damages against Tinsley stemming from claims that he created a “hostile work environment” by allegedly making unwanted advancements towards Frost-Winn and sending explicit texts.   Last month, for Record Store Day, the National released an exclusive vinyl edition of Boxer (Live in Brussels), an album of live performances from their 2007 album Boxer. Now the band has announced

Are you tired of the unending barrage of 2018 festival lineups headlined by every possible combination of Eminem, the Weeknd, Jack White, the Killers, Queens of the Stone Age, the National, and Travis Scott? We suggest booking a ticket to West Palm Beach for the weekend of May 3-6 for the SunFest Festival, which is headlined by none of the above artists and instead by a completely ridiculous mix including Billy Idol, Girl Talk, Zedd, Incubus, Nick Jonas, 311, and the quasi-Sublime cover band Sublime With Rome. Also, Cake, Third Eye Blind, and DNCE! Things don’t seem to be going too well between Grimes and her label. Earlier this month, she posted on Instagram that though she had planned to release

“Walk It Back,” the third track on the National’s new album Sleep Well Beast, features a long spoken-word passage that may or may not be a Karl Rove quote. Although the quote, which comes from a 2004 New York Times Magazine piece about the George W. Bush administration, was only attributed to an anonymous “senior adviser to Bush,” the source was later identified as Rove. The National have agreed to give royalties to Ron Suskind, the journalist who wrote the article in question, and they’ve jokingly asked him to share it with Rove. But when Newsweek reached out to Rove himself to see what he thought of the National’s use of the quote, he denied that he was the source
