• Get rich or die tryin' with the legend himself when 50 Cent comes to Electric Factory tomorrow (Friday). We expect you to go all out, and most importantly, give us a full report about his upcoming sixth album, Street King Immortal

• If you're not feeling like getting down with 50 Cent, Jazz & Grooves is putting on a show at the Rotunda on Friday, featuring Goldlink, Rome Fortune, Kari Faux, and Liberal Arts. And ou only have to go down to 40th and Walnut. If you're looking for some great music this weekend, you have no excuse to miss this. 


• Remember Modest Mouse? Well, some of us have been waiting eight years for a new album. The highly anticipated tracks won't come out until March, but you can listen to an entirely new song"The Best Room," now. If this isn't the ultimate #tbt, then we don't know what is. 

• St. Vincent just won a Grammy for her self–titled album, and we think the Grammys got it right. Kanye maybe( okay, probably) wouldn't agree, but we think you should get on Spotify right now and check out St. Vincent.


• Maybe we were born in the wrong generation, but our eighties fan inside of us just kicked in. Van Halen—yes, the Van Halen—is releasing their first live album, based on a concert in Tokyo. 'Everybody wants some,' indeed. 

The Guardian posted an excerpt from Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth's memoir, Girl In A Band. Who needs to do reading for class when you can read about kicking ass?
