Published Feb 27, 2010Following another week of tireless news gathering, we're here again to top it all off with our News Round-Up. Here's just a few of the stories that made our headlines this week.
Making for this week's most entertaining/ridiculous story, notorious masked rapper DOOM stirred up a lot of confusion over his Toronto show. After the concert already being postponed once, we found out a day before the show that co-headliner Mos Def was no longer performing, adding even more speculation that the Thursday night throw-down would mark yet another fake DOOM show. Well, we were at the concert, and to read our detailed review/timeline of the "performance" and its surrounding events, click here.
Also, this week we had Thom Yorke naming his new band Atoms for Peace and announcing a U.S. tour, DJ Premier and KRS-One teaming up yet again for another album, Janet Jackson replacing Michael in the Jackson 5, and the BBC reportedly axing its beloved 6 Music, as well as other programming.
And since almost no week goes by without some White Stripes news, the band announced a whole pile of new theatrical screenings for their new concert doc Under the Great White Northern Lights in Canada and the U.S., and Jack White's wife Karen Elson is releasing a solo album, with Jack at the helm no less.
Oh, and check out who got his guitar back ten years after it was stolen.
