Never Say Die: Coachwhips, John Dwyer's previous band before Thee Oh Sees, will be playing a series of reunion shows at SXSW in March.

She Said, He Said: Conor Oberst has filed a 1 million dollar libel suit against the woman who accused him of raping her in 2003. I'm unsure how to feel, although I know that I am anti-rape and anti-Bright Eyes.

Come As You Are, Crying: Yesterday was Kurt Cobain day in Aberdeen, WA and it was celebrated with the unveiling of a weeping effigy wearing ripped jeans. Hoquiam will observe Kurt Cobain day on April 10th, as the two cities continue their never ending battle to out "flash" one another.

Dying to be Dead: ?uestlove with be guest starring as a dead body on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU, as evidenced by this tweeted picture from Ice T.

Literally Whipped: Pussy Riot members were brutalized by the whip-wielding Cossack militia during a performance in Sochi and a guitar was smashed. The footage of the incident was appropriated for the upsetting music video for Putin Will Teach You How to Love the Motherland. Today also marks the two year anniversary of their Punk Rock Prayer performance—time sure flies when human rights are violated!

for whatever reason everybody keeps reporting oberst is being accused of rape. the xojane article they link to is clearly about physical, not sexual assault. i'm confused about who is accusing whom of what. something doesn't add up. publicity for them both i guess.
