Yeasayer : Tour Update - Sydney date change

Despite the fact that Sydney is still freezing cold, you can tell that summer's coming from the number of tour announcements and festival lineups being released.

Yeasayer were originally coming to Australia to play at now-cancelled The Great Escape Festival. Thankfully, despite the festival not going ahead, they are still venturing from Brooklyn to Oz in October to perform their highly anticipated sideshows.

It's the first time that Yeasayer have been in Australia - and from all that I've heard, their live show is not to be missed.

Headline shows will be held in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney - with the Sydney date changing from Tuesday 7 October, to Monday 6 October. Any tix that have been purchased for the Tuesday show, will still be valid on the new date.

MGMT Tour Update

Tickets to MGMT's Australian shows went on sale last week.

I was devastated when I jumped online just half an hour after they went on sale, to find that all tickets to their Sydney show at The Enmore were gone. (Turns out they sold in just three minutes!)

Happily, Frontier Touring have announced that the Sydney & Melbourne MGMT shows will be moving to larger venues.

They will remain on their original dates - so if you've already got tickets, just turn up to the new venue to gain entry. But if you're like me, and you missed out, here are the details:

Sydney’s Enmore Theatre performance will now take place at the Hordern Pavilion. Please note this show is now fully General Admission. Seating is available in the venue, but is not reserved.

Melbourne’s Palace Theatre performance will now take place at Festival Hall. All tickets purchased for the Palace Theatre performance will be valid for General Admission floor entry at Festival Hall. Further 18+ General Admission floor and Reserved Seating tickets, and All Ages Reserved Seating tickets will be made available for this show.

The extra tickets will go on sale at 9am, Friday 5th September. I'm sure that these ones will go just as quickly - so if you want to get in first, become a Frontier Touring member to get pre-sale tickets from 3rd September.

New Cool Kids

A new label has launched.

Called Green Label Sounds, it's backed by Mountain Dew, and is a singles only label aimed at helping up-and-coming artists to distribute exclusive tracks for free.

Cool Kids are the first artists to use the label, with their new track 'Delivery Man'.

Cool Kids have often released their tracks single-by-single, so it doesn't come as a big surprise when a single drops from them without an EP, mixtape, or album. But hearing that Matt & Kim are going to be the next artists to distribute a track through Green Label is really exciting, particularly given that they haven't released a single thing in almost 2 years!

Music loves fashion

Janet Jackson's name is not synonymous with quality underwear after her superbowl malfunction, which is why I was surprised to hear that she is launching her own line of lingerie.

Snoop Dogg is also unveiling a line of clothing in Vegas this week. Called 'Rich & Infamous'.
The site info reads:
"It's a fraternity of sorts... from presidents to gangsters, few men have been able to endure the burden of gaining wealth at any cost."
Check out a video of the collection here.

Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes is also working on a line of men's suits which will be sold through the Confederacy store in LA. Hammond says: “I want to make suits that I’m going to have for myself. They’re for the person who needs his one suit for a wedding. He’d rather get something like this than go to Men’s Wearhouse, pay the same amount, and look like an out-of-date parent.”
