THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, Unplugged at SPIN. Four songs, including one of my faves, "Dance Music."

TEDDY THOMPSON stopped by for a session at Morning Becomes Eclectic.

TV ON THE RADIO is advance streaming Nine Types of Light.

NELLIE McKAY played a Tiny Desk Concert at the offices of NPR.

HOLY GHOST! is advance streaming their self-titled debut.

NIRVANA: Kurt Cobain died 17 years ago yesterday, and of the many things I saw posted about it, my fave was this early clip of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," mostly due to the awful set.

THE RAVEONETTES talk to the Boston Globe about the recording and themes of their new album, along with the rise in girl groups.

ANNA CALVI talks to The Independent about her influences and her fans in the fashion world.

PJ HARVEY talks to the Sydney Morning Herald about history repeating.

KINGS OF LEON get an apology of sorts from Glee creator Ryan Murphy. Apparently, demanding that other artists kowtow to your political agenda and fill your bank account was a bad choice. Who knew?

ROBERT PATTINSON & KRISTEN STEWART are reportedly on a break? Studio sources deny it.

ANGELINA JOLIE made a humanitarian visit to the Tunisian-Libyan border, where she spoke with refugees.

YEMEN: The spokesman for the anti-Saleh Joint Meeting Parties said a new government would oppose al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Let's hope so: counterterrorism operations in Yemen have ground to a halt, allowing Al Qaeda's deadliest branch outside of Pakistan to operate more freely inside the country and to increase plotting for possible attacks against Europe and the United States, American diplomats, intelligence analysts and counterterrorism officials say.

EGYPT: The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces said that it would not permit an Iranian-styled theocracy such as the one in Iran.

LIBYA: The rebel leadership rejected peace overtures from Gaddafi's sons.

AFGHANISTAN: In the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand province, coalition forces are not declaring victory - but they are saying they have defeated the insurgents. Outside the main insurgent provinces (Helmand and Kandahar) there has been some growth in violence, which is why the national picture does not show quite the same trend as that in those two centers of insurgency.

20 ALL-TIME GREAT CHICAGO GUITARISTS, courtesy of the Illinois Entertainer.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Hop tops the pops with 38.1 million against a 63 million budget... and stands a decent chance of making money through Easter, despite generally bad reviews.  Source Code placed with 15 million, which seems a bit soft, though ultimately fine against a 32 million budget.  Insidious showed with 13.5 million, against a mere 1.5 million budget. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, facing competition from Hop, tumbled 57 percent to the fourth slot with 10.2 million, but it should be profitable with a 38 million total to date against a 21 million budget.  Limitless, facing competition from Source Code, held decently, rounding out the Top Five with 9.4 million.  Below the fold, Sucker Punch plummeted 68 percent in its second weekend and looks doomed in North America.
