Kill Rock Stars

Kill Rock Stars posted a bulletin on MySpace this evening about tomorrow’s premier of Deerhoof‘s new video “The Perfect Me”. I can’t link you to the location where it’s going to premier, because they really didn’t specify that information in the bulletin. I checked the band’s website and MySpace…nothing mentioned in either location. Here’s what I can tell you…


Just so I don’t lose all credibility with the above foolishness, here are Deerhoof’s March Tour dates and an mp3 for your downloading pleasure:

mar 02 – San Diego, CA – The Epicentre (w/ Macromantics)

Kill Rock Stars, the label that first launched Eliott Smith to prominence as a solo artist, will be opening the vaults this spring to issue a two-disc rarities set. New Moon, due out May 8, will feature songs recorded by Smith between 1995 and 1997. This would, we would assume, make them leftovers from the Elliott Smith and Either/Or sessions.

The album was mixed by Larry Crane, a longtime friend and collaborator of Smith’s, who also serves as the archivist for his estate. A portion of all proceeds from the album will go to Outside In, a Portland, Oregon-based organization dedicated to helping homeless youth.
