The 20th anniversary for Nirvana’s Nevermind is quickly approaching and almost everyone is doing some sort of tribute to the eponymous album. On September 23, VH1 will be airing a rare, never-before-seen concert, entitled Nirvana: Live at the Paramount. The concert took place in 1991 on Halloween in Seattle and the band played a bunch of cuts from Nevermind. Here’s hoping that it will air in Canada but if it doesn’t, the concert is being released on DVD and Blu-Ray on September 27. (Via Rolling Stone)
Last week it was revealed that the Flaming Lips were working on a six-hour long-long song called “I Found This Star On The Ground” and for a donation of $100, fans can have their name in the song. Frontman Wayne Coyne talked to Rolling Stone about more details surrounding the song. The band just finished the song and said it sounded like “the Velvet Underground meets Super Mario Brothers,” and they were shooting for a John Coltrane kind of vibe. In the Flaming Lips experimental fashion, they’re also releasing the song “in conjunction with this weird little strobe light toy.” Coyne’s intention is for people to play with the toy to music for hours and hours but then he added, “I don’t know if you could play with it for six hours, but it’s kind of meant so that kids can like, take LSD and play with it.” We can always count on Coyne and the Flaming lips to deliver!

Last year, Sufjan Stevens and Castanets’ Raymond Raposa scored a documentary called Beyond A Place, directed by Stevens’ friend Kaleo La Belle. On October 30, Stevens and Raposa will perform the score live at a screening of the film at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn. (Via Pitchfork)
Due to the fire in England that destroyed the Sony DADC Warehouse, home of thousands and thousands of records, Xtra Mile Recordings and PledgeMusic have created a campaign asking fans to request albums they want replaced. There are three different variations available, including “standard CD or LP, signed CD or LP, or signed CD or LP with a hand-written thank-you note from the band/act.” (Via NME)Tweet
