The Concretes - KidsThe Concretes have a new song entitled "Kids" up on their MySpace. According to an e-mail update I got from the band the song, "...tells the story of Lisa and Maria growing up, sat side by side by the record player, forming a taste in and for music that would much later result in The Concretes." Hmmm, how music-geek of them. The single will be available in stores in Scandinavia on March 14, but the rest of the world can purchase the single on CD or mp3 through the Licking Fingers website. The full tracklisting of the 4-song single will be available in a couple of weeks.

No news on the Belle and Sebastian front except that they have a bunch of merch available for 50% off until the end of March over at their Shop. Stock up, 'cause I know you want to.

So the Feist show at Massey Hall has been moved from May 25 to May 26. Tickets onsale this Saturday March 3 at noon. Maybe House of Blues(at least as of today) could update their site, huh?

Asthmatic Kitty's Castanets, and Shapes and Sizes, plus Mississauga's Ghost Hands will be at Sneaky Dee's on March 24[via Stille Post].

Raleigh, NC's Annuals have been added to the Kaiser Chiefs/The Walkmen show at Kool Haus already scheduled for April 18[via Pitchfork].

UK's The Cribs will be at the El Mocambo on April 30[via High Road Touring]. I haven't actually heard their music yet, but the band's new disc is being produced by Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos, which should make the band's upcoming gig of some interest to some people.

The Montreal double-bill of Torngat and SS Cardiacs will be at Tranzac on May 12[via Stille Post].

Brooklyn, NY's Favorite Sons will be part of the Voxtrot/Au Revoir Simone bill at Sneaky Dee's on June 8[via Pitchfork]. The Pitchfork link also reveals, that surprise, surprise, the band's debut is self-titled. Oh, how clever. Ok, when's this show gonna be moved to somewhere bigger? It's just plain ridiculous now even attempting to host this at Sneaky Dee's.

Beirut will be working with Owen Pallett on the next Final Fantasy album[via Pitchfork].

Here's a mp3 music mix from vitaminsforyou. Can't wait to hear his remix of The Coast 's "All Farewells".

Geoff, Beth, and Adrian of Portishead performed an impromptu 2-song set in Bristol at Mr. Wolfs recently, including a new song that as one patron described, "Rarely have I seen a room full of people all wear exactly the same facial expression, but when I looked at the crowd everyone had their mouths gaping and eyes wide open as if they were witnessing an alien landing. It was wonderful. The new song was completely gorgeous, carried by Beth's vocals and with very low-key instrumentation." [via Pitchfork] Photos from the show are here. Portishead lives!
