"480 Minutes" - new Veils, Strokes, BRMC, Depeche Mode, Suede, Wavve, etc.

This week I was fortunate enough to see three terrific bands in one night: Golden Grrrls, from Glasgow, Scotland, Brilliant Colors from San Francisco, CA, and Veronica Falls from London.  All were good, but Veronica Falls stole the show.  You can find some photos of the blessed event here:

Sadly I didn't take any photos at the Wavves, FIDLAR, and Cheatahs show last Friday night, but Wavves and FIDLAR absolutely killed it, with Wavves busting out a terrific cover of Sonic Youth's, "100%" (see video of SY performing the song below).

Today's 8-hour marathon radio show will feature new music by three bands with the word "black" in their name....that's notable, is it not?  Bands include The Aerotrope Guild (Sydney, Australia), Audacity (Fullerton, CA), Automatic Children (New York, NY), The Black Angels (Austin, TX), Black Rebel Motorcyle Club (San Francisco, CA), blackoutbeach (Vancouver, Canada), Campfires (Portland, OR), Cold Cave (NYC/LA sounding like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club covering Sisters of Mercy), Depeche Mode (Basildon, England), Keaton Henson (London, England), Restless Leg (Sydney, Australia),  Sam Vicari (Chicago, IL), Says She's Ms. Blat (New York, NY), Shout Out Louds (Stockholm, Sweden), The Strokes (New York, NY), Suede (London, England), Tango In The Attic (Glenrothes, Scotland), Vampire Blow (Copenhagen, Denmark, and they have adorable videos, one of which is below), The Veils (London, England), Waaves (San Diego, CA), and Z*L (Boston, MA).
