I’m pretty excited for this previously-unseen David Bowie DVD that’s coming out in late November.

Broken Social Scene paid a visit to the Yo Gabba Gabba set, as all indie rockers are now contractually obligated to do. Soon they’ll be heading to Switzerland to play the Heartland Festival, along with the Acorn and Destroyer.
