"Back pockets are on hiatus, but not gone forever,” Kempf says. “We've always had a revolving cast of players, just never a break. Performing, being creative, bringing people together is my life. I can't imagine life without stage. I’m hoping to have a new band or a reincarnation of Back Pockets together by early spring or summer."
So that’s what’s up.
I have a love of Scandinavian acts that write English songs, and Röyksopp confirmed my love with a theatrical show. The members had sacks on their heads and Daft Punk-like space helmets and robot visors, constantly changing their head ware. The group opened with dancey instrumentals of a few of their songs before breaking out with the vocals and at times went into the full-on dance equivalent of "Stairway to Heaven." During the middle of the concert, the two guitarists jammed back-to-back with green lights behind them in a Mötley Crüe-like spectacle. But the Norwegians remained polite throughout the whole show, incessantly thanking the audience and declaring "Ah-tlan-tah" as a great crowd. "Is that medicinal," the singer asked cutely when he smelled marijuana. No, it's just the stank of the Masquerade.
Röyksopp uses female vocals in many of their songs, including Robyn in the instant classic "Girl and the Robot," but pixie singer Amelie took their place. Amelie sounded great the whole night, pitch-perfect yet still uniquely human, a perfect complement to the group's computerized sound. She changed outfits throughout the show, from a glow-in-the-dark half inflatable tube number to a Gaga-esque crown, all while wearing a black body suit. Unlike Daft Punk, though, the group wasn't afraid to reveal their faces, adding a level of intimacy along with the sweaty dancing. When the floor starts shaking in Heaven and you're positive you're going to fall through, you know it's a good night.
Got boogie fever? Get it worked out tonight ... and all weekend.

The Tambor resident is sure to warm up the evening with loungey house that's just hot enough to get you ready for the next spot ... or not. This is part of a rotating DJ series, with the likes of Atlanta's notable DJs, including Chris Grass, Chris Nicholson, Mike Katz, Terry Holloway and Osmose.

AND ON ANOTHER NOTE ...

The Ruination have a deep and dubbed-out new mixtape posted on their Band Camp page, called Wham Blam!, that features appearances from DT of Clan Destined and Ty-vicious of the Nice Guise. They hold it down like a metronome.
So, apparently B.o.B has a new diss track out in response to Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator's single "Yonkers," on which he goes in on B.O.B and his indie pop "Airplanes" swag.
B.o.B.'s track leaves some wondering if it's really a diss, because it seems to be a bit mild and doesn't directly drop Tyler's name. But with the track bearing the title "No Future" and with B.o.B referencing lost Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt's song "Pigeons," chances are highly likely that it is indeed a response. Weak? Maybe. But Tyler seems to have been taken by surprise.
Opera was packed with hundreds of people when DJ Tiesto performed on March 21, including this neo-techno hippie lovechild. Such a hot look right now.

3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
oh sweet: just who i was waiting to get announced!
