weekend curfew


Curfew Update 06/11/2009

So I know I’ve been meaning to follow up to my last post with a bunch of news and shows, so here we go:

New tracks from All Time Low’s new album, “Nothing Personal,” can be heard here. MTV has a skit that involves the band’s members being held hostage by a group of females. In the video you’ll find the skit, with fake live and real acoustic performances of new tracks like “Weightless,” “Lost In Stereo,” and “Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)” sliced into it.

The Friday Night Boys have released their album, Off The Deep End, available wherever fine music is sold.

Apparently the hottest trend nowadays is for artists to collaborate on tracks with female actresses. As I mentioned in my previous post, Cobra Starship teamed up with Leighton Meester for “Good Girls Go Bad,” but I forgot to include Forever The Sickest Kids’ duet with Disney Channel’s Selena Gomez. You can see a behind the scenes look at FTSK and Selena recording their rendition of “Whoa Oh!” from AbsolutePunk. As if that wasn’t enough fun, singer-songwriter Pete Yorn has paired up with the sultry Scarlet Johansson on his track “Relator” off of his new album, The Breakup.

The Blink 182 tour schedule has seen some updates, including sell-outs, added shows and venue changes. See these updates here, although the venue for the Washington, DC show has yet to be announced. Be sure to check out AboslutePunk (link on the sidebar, I’m too lazy to put a link here) for video from their epic 9-song set on Jimmy Kimmel (they were only asked to play 2 songs).

Boulder, CO’s very own 3OH!3 released their new video for “Starstrukk.” The video was directed by Sum41 drummer Steve Jocz.

Jack’s Mannequin also released a music video. Check out their latest for “Swim.”

Luis Dubuc aka The Secret Handshake has a new video, too. See the video for “All For You.

Finally don’t forget Taking Back Sunday’s video for “Sink Into Me,” now seen in its entirety.

Nevershoutnever has finally chosen a label. Christofer Drew and Co. have signed to Warner Bros. Watch an interview with Drew from the MTV Buzzworthy Blog

Curfew Microupdate 04/07/2009

In this flash of an update, The Downtown Fiction is playing a SOLD OUT show at Jammin’ Java this Friday, April 10. They’ll be supported by Parachute, along with The Goodnight Anthem, which should be one star studded event. In need of tickets? Maybe you could try MySpace or Craigslist or something.

Check out AbsolutePunk.net for a good stream of music news, including today’s releases. Also check out SupJustin.com for new music, releases, interviews, tours…basically anything you could ever want. I don’t know who he is, but he has some awesome job that lets him follow bands and do cool things. Of late, he’s reported on new Taking Back Sunday and The Secret Handshake, nevershoutnever’s upcoming EP, an interview with Hit The Lights, and even Hey Monday’s new video–which I admit isn’t bad, though I would’ve liked it better when I was in high school.

Meanwhile, I’m not sure what’s more exciting between Blink-182 getting back together, new music from Taking Back Sunday, or Brand New. Here’s a new one from Brand New, “Gasoline” (different than the links above, you should click those too).
