In February/March, The Morning After Girls have a weird tour schedule they just announced. They're opening for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in the US for a while, then hopping to Europe to open for Stellastarr*, then coming back to America to keep playing the BRMC tour, then playing for a few days at SXSW, and then finally, playing the last show on the BRMC tour. Crazy, huh?
My Morning Jacket are mailing burned, unprotected copies of their new album, Z, to fans who were complaing that Sony's recent scandal prevented them from transfering the songs to their iPod. Read the full story here.
