San Diego Street Scene

Modest Mouse will be part of this year's San Diego Street Scene taking place over the weekend of August 28 - 29. They will be joining other acts like Silversun Pickups, The Dead Weather, Cake and the Black Eyed Peas. Let's all hope that Fergie doesn't piss on stage again like she did in 2005... Jack White must be nervous...

Autumn Beds single to be released June 23? has added an entry for Autumn Beds, stating that this new single will be coming out on June 23. No word on what it's b-side will be.

Hopefully this will turn out to be true. After the month delay of the Satellite Skin single, and the lack of updates that came with it, fans seem to be concerned that the new EP will be pushed back from it's tentative August 4 release date.

Thanks to mm_2108 for the link.

Where to get Satellite Skin online

Seeing as how the Satellite Skin 7" is getting a limited release of only 4000 copies and there has been virtually no word on which record stores will be carying the release on May 26, it may be easier to purchase it online.

The 7" can be pre-ordered from one of these sites:
  • Skyroo $6.99 + $4.49 shipping (US shipping only)
  • SOLD OUT Insound $7.99 + $4.99 US / $6.99 Canada & Mexico / $9.49+ International shipping
  • Homer's $9.99 + $3.45 US / $7.00 International shipping
All prices in USD.

If you know of any other sites selling the single OR any record store that is guaranteeing they will have the single in store on May 26, let us know so we can list them.
