MPR has a live session from Tapes N' Tapes which they performed for the station on July 21, 2006. The band open for The Futureheads at the Phoenix in Toronto tonight. I think I'm one of the few music bloggers that hasn't heard much of Tapes N' Tapes nor the new album from The Futureheads. Hence, I've changed my mind about going to the show tonight but I hope everyone has a great time.

XFM Scotland has archived the acoustic live session(from July 24, 2006) that The Sleepy Jackson performed for them. They performed 'God Lead your Soul', 'More Than One Way', and 'New York/Glasgow Sun'. [via Live Net Music] Their new album "Personality - One Was A Spider, One Was A Bird" was released in North America this past Tuesday July 25th. Listen to tracks from the album over a their MySpace site.

Bradleys Almanac has a review, photos, and mp3 download of the set from Camera Obscura's show in Allston, MA at Great Scott on July 6, 2006 plus a whole bunch of Camera Obscura-related links.

Gary Numan will be at The Mod Club on August 3rd, not at Circa Club as originally announced.

Chromewaves informs that UK's The Beautiful South will be in Toronto for a show at the Phoenix on November 1st. I think I want to go to this just for the chance that they might perform at least one Housemartins song.
