In the same week that we interviewed Jaime Lowe about her ODB biography and had an unexpected follow-up exchange, the Vivian Girls insulted people who eat at Applebee’s, we defended them, they apologized, Fluxy (who co-launched a new blog) called bullshit, NBS responded, and now Zach’s off drinking heavily.

Live, Tina Turner celebrated her 69th birthday in Newark (?) with Beyonce and Jay-Z. Ted Leo and Andrew W.K. did indie-rock karaoke–for three hours (!). The Silver Apples revived “Moontune” at the Kitchen. And at the Bell House, chiptune nerds did Blip Fest.
What wasn’t awesome? This week.
