Brianna from Tigers Jaw has released a statement regarding what occurred at last night's show. It's depressing that this even needs to be said, but everyone: read it -- share it.
Last night at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, someone came on stage and very forcibly tried to kiss me, and actually did kiss Britty while she was playing. Another person from the tour was kissed while taking a photo… This tour is the first time something like this has happened to me, and I definitely feel responsible to say something.

IT IS NEVER OKAY TO TOUCH SOMEONE WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT. Ever. I felt so upset and violated, as did the others who this happened to.. Touching someone without their consent is...

I would play more than just four chords, if it’s a song that you might like. But I am not very good, so I would practice every night.

According to posts on Twitter, it appears a concert goer tried to jump on stage and kiss Britty Drake of Pity Sex at tonight's show.
Sucks that a culture of entitlement has engrained that its cool to kiss nonconsenting strangers so well that he didnt know what he did wrong. But it just makes me appreciate all of the wonderful supportive and respectful people on this tour and at the show tonight.

T-Mobile has introduced a new initiative called "Music Freedom" which will allow a handful of music services to bypass the carrier's monthly data allowances. It's an interesting idea, and one probably exciting to music fans, but as pointed out by The Verge this sets a dangerous precident:
The list of Music Freedom-compatible services currently includes Pandora, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, iTunes Radio, Slacker, Spotify, Samsung's Milk, and the forthcoming streaming service from electronic music destination Beatport. It'll also be taking votes from customers through its website and on Twitter for other services to add to the list of exemptions. [...] It's a terribly slippery slope: T-Mobile...

Vulture has a new feature length piece on Jack Antonoff and his upcoming Bleachers release:
The first thing he does when he walks onto any plane is sterilize the seat with anti-bacterial wipes, he says. “Everyone looks at me like I’m a fucking nut, but when was the last time you saw someone clean a plane? It’s just gross.” He always hugs hello and good-bye—that’s not just friendliness; he avoids shaking hands. He won’t sing into anyone else’s mike and doesn’t play brass instruments, because “talk about a cesspool for disease, a trumpet?” He’s an avid Uber user and jokes he hasn’t been on public transit since 2001, though that’s only partly because of germs; he also saw a dude pull his...

Brendan Kelly tackles inspirational-quotes, inspirational speeches, and self-help books in his latest blog entry:
It’s fine, I guess. I don’t wanna shit on any traditions, but it IS more or less a waste of time and energy at best and at worst it’s a terrible platform for some dumb dick who lucked into a lottery-win caliber job to reinforce their own deluded notion that they understand how the world works better than everyone else (this is particularly funny because there’s almost no one less qualified to explain to young people how to make it in the world than people who get paid millions of dollars to pretend to be other people, write laws about other people, or play shitty pop songs)....

"Gangnam Style" has now surpassed 2 billion views on YouTube -- that's equivalent to 140 million hours, or more than 16,000 years years of watching this video.
Had people not been watching PSY—the South Korean pop star who released the song in July 2012—they could have constructed three such ships. Alternatively they could have built more than four Great Pyramids of Giza, or another Wikipedia, or six Burj Khalifas in Dubai (the world’s tallest building). The song’s nearest rival is Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, at a paltry one billion views. The opportunity cost of watching PSY’s frivolity is huge, but humanity has at least been entertained.

Seventeen Magazine have "interviewed" The 1975.
With their seriously cute rocker looks, it's no surprise that the boys admitted they've "got, like, briefcases full of bras" from fans. But in case you've sent a special gift to the guys, you'll be happy to know that they keep them all! "We keep everything. We keep absolutely everything. But we can’t fit everything in our [apartment] anymore. It’s too much stuff!" said Matthew. The coolest thing they've ever gotten? "[Puzzles] of our own faces. That was pretty cool."
