This short news roundup is coming from Beijing, China. I brought my laptop with me on this trip, but left it in Guangzhou, and access to Wifi has been tricky.

Just to quickly recap what has been going on in my absence:

Modest Mouse kicks off their very short run of tour dates tomorrow before their headlining slot at Sasquatch. Something that will be on a lot of people's minds will be new material. If this happens, the Board is going to probably be the best place to stay up to date, as I won't be able to review anything until next week. Sheldon (Chief Tragedy) will be updating set lists, so please keep them coming in.

The band has also added more Australian dates in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne to accompany their performance at Splendor In The Grass. They will also be performing in New Zealand for the first time. Starting these dates off is also a single show in Troutdale, OR, maybe leaving space for a few more North American shows. Please refer to the Tour Date section for more info.

Lastly, Broken Social Scene has recorded a cover of The Word At Large for the Voice Project. The song had previously been covered live with Isaac back in 2008.
