Regina indie-poppers Rah Rah have announced their new EP and upcoming tour!

Expect the new material to be in a similar vein as the band’s past work. According to a press release, “The Sailors EP expands upon their sophomore disc Breaking Hearts.” Hidden Pony boss Mike Renaud adds, “Their next record is going to be killer.”

Nelly Furtado received $1 million in 2007 to perform at a party for Libyan despot Gaddafi. Now she says she’ll donate the money. That’s…nice.

Wavves has a new music video for “King Of The Beach”, and it’s about what you’d expect. Cue the video games, weed smoking and beach lounging.

The Le Tigre documentary chronicling their 2004 world tour will get a DVD release on June 7 after debuting at SXSW.

Seminal pop-punk band NOFX are coming to Canada!

The trip kicks off in St. John’s on June 14 and sees them play shows in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Calgary and BC. All dates are available below, and all include support from fellow Fat Wreck pop punks Teenage Bottlerocket.
