Random Music News for Saturday, August 29, 2015

Only another week until Mr. Robot premieres on Canadian TV. Take it from me: this is will be your favourite new show. That’s your TV news. As for music news…

  1. Lollapalooza is expanding to Columbia. Still no Canada.
  2. Do you always lose your friends at music festivals? Maybe you need the new Pepsi friend-finder blimp.
  3. It’s time again for the World Air Guitar Championships. (Via Tom)
  4. Interesting observation: why are so many female pop stars picking up guns?
  5. Google is going to modify Chrome so the browser doesn’t suddenly start playing audio from…somewhere. I hate when that happens.
  6. Motorhead had to stop a show the other night because Lemmy had trouble breathing.
  7. Ian Rogers, the guy who ran Beats before it was bought by Apple (and went to Apple in the deal) is leaving Apple.
  8. Why doesn’t Apple just buy Spotify?
  9. Fantastic pictures taken from inside musical instruments. (Via Tom)
