Published Jun 29, 2013While we ease our way into a much-deserved long weekend, we've collected some of the week's top stories. So if you're looking to catch up on anything you might have missed, come get back on top of things.
First up, Hamilton, ON's Supercrawl rolled out quite the killer lineup this year, roping in the likes of Yo La Tengo, Thurston Moore's Chelsea Light Moving, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Fucked Up, Diamond Rings, PS I Love You and METZ, among many others. The best part about it all? It's totally free.
But that was hardly the only concert news this week, as Italian prog-horror kings Goblin announced their first North American tour ever and Beyoncé expanded her "Mrs. Carter Show World Tour." However, Earl Sweatshirt seemingly cancelled a bunch of dates. And while it was initially announced that all his tour stop would be getting axed due to illness, later reports indicated that only the European leg of his tour was getting called off.
It was also another big week for high-profile album announcements, with us getting news of new records from MGMT, the Dismemberment Plan and Arctic Monkeys.
In other news, Will.i.am took some legal action against Pharrell over, um, the words "I am," and, sadly, Devo drummer Alan Myers passed away.
