"480 Minutes" - New Black Keys, New Young Pony Club

First some sad news: Malcolm McLaren, band manager (Sex Pistols, Adam & The Ants, Bow Wow Wow, New York Dolls), musician, fashion designer, and self-publicist extraordinaire died this week at age 64 after a battle with cancer.

On a more pleasant note, thanks to everyone who made it out to the April Rumble @ Milk Bar featuring Pepper Rabbit, Veil Veil Vanish, and Silver Swans. The bands were all good, the venue is pretty if only we could find a way to get people to come to the Upper Haight! FYI next month (5/5) the Rumble returns to Cafe du Nord.

Together with our friends at Soma FM, BAGeL Radio will be presenting an excellent show next Friday -- Love Is All (Gothenberg, Sweden), Princeton (Eagle Rock, CA), and Butterfly Bones (SF, CA) @ The Rickshaw Stop -- and you can win tickets during the show today. Get in touch when you hear a song by any of those bands during today's 480 Minutes program for chance to win a pair of tickets to the show, or buy tix in advance. April is a little ridiculous for shows in the Bay Area, but I'm going to bite the bullet and try to see every last one. Or at least the ones listed below in the Bay Area Gig eList.

Today 480 Minutes will debut new recordings from The Black Keys (Akron, OH), Roky Erickson With Okkervil River (Austin, TX), The Mynabirds (Omaha, NE), The Tallest Man On Earth (Dalarna, Sweden), The Secret History (New York, NY), Gil Scott-Heron (Jackson, TN), Jonsi (Iceland), Laura Marling (London, England), Fakeyourowndeath (San Francisco, CA), Kings Go Forth (Milwaukee, WI), and New Young Pony Club (London, England).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
