While waiting in line for the brain surgeons at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night to figure out the guest list for the Pretenders show, a guy in front of me turned and said 'Well, maybe you can get into Madison Square Garden instead?' I asked him 'For what? He replied 'Madonna's there tonight, Isn't that ironic?' I didn't get the irony. Anyway, as he was watching all the color drain from my face I said 'No thank you. Madonna's never...

I just peeped this interesting little tidbit on Pop Bitch : On MIA's 'Paper Planes,' the word 'weed' has been bleeped on western daytime radio.

New Orleans has been dealt yet another blow this past week with Hurricane Gustav's visit to the Gulf Coast, but one of the best ways to help the city heal has always been contributing to its musicians. One of the most unique acts in the city, the New Orleans Bingo! Show, is visiting New York for three shows at Spiegelworld this week, and I can't think of a better setting to see this vaudeville/cabaret/carnival/lounge/performance art act. If you love old jazz, burlesque, theater, and of course,...

  My band 3Pac$ is playing tonight at Bodega. Which is one of my new fav spots to cut a rug for various reasons, one being it is around the corner from my house. If you are in New York and you like to shake your ass you should totally hit this up. Check the pictures from the first Nasty Jam. Shit gets crazy, limbo on the dance floor crazy. We are playing with frequent BUST DJ, the booty bass master DJ Dirty Finger. THE NASTY JAM...

    In case you missed Morningwood rock out at the BUST party the other night, here is their hilarious new video for Sugarbaby. Not sure why I'm so disturbed by seeing the guy and the puppet together, it's kinda creepy. I do love their songs....
