Kanye Opens for the Stones, plus Modest Mouse and Johnny Marr, The Moon's Bulge, Bob Dylan Musical Abstract, Goodbye Sleater-Kinney

  • Kanye West will open for the Rolling Stones during their upcoming tour. Sorry, he will be their "special guest." I don't know if you've ever seen how the opening band for the Stones is received, but it is no wait to treat a guest.
  • Somehow Modest Mouse have convinced Johnny Marr to record and tour with them. That guy (the frontman) is going to be impossible to be around for at least a couple of months.
  • Moon: Is that the result of your moving in an eccentric oval-shaped orbit 100 million years ago when you were in a molasses-like state or are you just happy to see me?
  • The star of the Bob Dylan musical tells us why his jukebox musical won't be like other jukebox musicals. The answer: It's abstract art. Should be a big, big hit.
  • There is an obituary for Sleater-Kinney at Slate. Seems like the perfect place for that, doesn't it?
