M.I.A. news brewing, Frightened Rabbit returns to Seattle, Klaxons comeback

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Contrary to previous years, it's the fall season that's delivering this year's best music, and not the summer months. Two big shows canceled right before our dreamy eyes - U2 and Rihanna - and a third dropped off the calendar just last week: the scheduled Courtyard Hounds performance at the Moore Theatre. The Jonas Brothers also revamped their summer itinerary and erased White River Amphitheatre from it.

That aside, here's three quick announcements needing to be made:

Are you a fan of M.I.A.? If so, I've got juicy scoop on her, but am sworn to silence until Monday, July 19. Between now and then is a great time to become a "friend" of Seattle Gay News' official Facebook page, where I'll unload this information that I've been keeping secret for two weeks. M.I.A.'s new album, Maya, was released on July 12 and is generating huge buzz, including a spot on Spin magazine's best albums of 2010. If you follow the Grammy and Oscar-nominated diva, definitely check out our Facebook page on Monday for some fresh, exciting buzz.

Some news I don't have to wait to announce is that of Frightened Rabbit, the Scottish folk-rock group who've interviewed twice with me and successfully sold out Neumos in mid-May. Which explains why they'll soon perform at a bigger venue, The Showbox Market on October 7. If you missed them before, don't let the next opportunity to see one of the most talented rising bands in the world slip away. The quintet's latest release, The Winter of Mixed Drinks, has received knockout reviews, though you might want to start with their debut album The Midnight Organ Fight from 2008. Visit www.showboxonline.com for ticket details.

Those promising British lads known as Klaxons have reappeared after a three-year absence. The trio, who confidently won the prestigious 2007 Mercury Music Prize for their adventurous debut Myths of the Near Future, is finally releasing a follow-up, Surfing the Void, set for an August 31 release. Klaxons will introduce cuts from the new CD, and plow through older songs like "Golden Skans" and "Gravity's Rainbow," when they swing through Seattle on October 5 at Chop Suey. Visit www.chopsuey.com for ticket details.

Finally, we're now a month away from Lady GaGa's appearance at the Tacoma Dome. Tickets for the August 21 show - a Saturday night, thank you - are still available at www.ticketmaster.com. Make it an overnight experience by booking a room at Hotel Murano (www.hotelmuranotacoma.com), in the downtown area and within walking distance of free light rail to and from the Tacoma Dome, and to the city's museum district.
