Spinner News Mega-Pack: Metric, Japandroids, Mutek, NXNE, Hey Ocean

Ghostface Killah

Ghostface Killah

I’ve been in-house helping do some editing at Spinner AOL the last couple weeks and it’s meant I’ve also written up a batch of quickie news stories. Here’s a bunch of ’em:

Metric inspired by Gary Glitter. Optics-wise, if Metric want to avoid lowbrow jokes they should avoid touring Thailand this year.

Ghostface Killah, Matthew Good, Bad Religion free shows at NXNE. This is super-exciting because I now understand what Ghostface is talking about.

Japandroids are covering Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds. The song they’re doing is “Jack The Ripper.”

Mutek Festival gets all 0110011110110110111001011011011101100000010000011010111010101. Tim Hecker.

Hey Ocean! make a nice song.
