>>> Baltimore spaz-kids Ponytail are set to hit the road, playing some joint dates with Chicago-area weirdies Joan of Arc. We’re going to go out on a limb here and assume people attending these shows will be wearing headbands, tie-dye shirts, and pants cut off right above their calves. Dates are here.

>>> Swedish garage-rockers Caesars — whom you might remember them from an iPod Shuffle commercial a few years back — are releasing a new album on August 19. This is mostly newsworthy because said album is called Strawberry Weed. That’s like calling your album Chocolate Crack, or something.
>>> As if the Black Keys, Man Man, the Walkmen, and Stone Temple Pilots weren’t enough, Bumbershoot just announced New Edition. Wait, not New Edition? Sorry. Some “new additions”, like T.I., Minus the Bear, Battles, Sondre Lerche, and the Whigs. Sorry, Ralph Tresvant fans. (via Filter-Mag.com)
