Gorillaz Gear Up For An Invasion! Tons Of Release Week Celebrations!

(PCM) Gorillaz continue to keep the surprises coming with an incredibly momentous week commemorating their highly anticipated new album Humanz—out April 28th on Warner Bros.

After unveiling the immersive fan experience of their augmented reality pop-up Spirit House in Brooklyn, Gorillaz have gone a step further in bringing Humanz to the world by hosting the virtual Humanz House Party. From Friday April 21st at 11am EST until end of Sunday April 23rd, those keen enough to download the Gorillaz app (Apple or Android) will be able to go to specific locations and walk through the Spirit House as they hear the new album before its release on a continuous loop. This will be the first opportunity for fans to hear Humanz in full. While those in NYC and Los Angeles can head to Bryant Park or Silver Lake Meadow for the unique experience, a full list of all participating cities and locations will be revealed within the Gorillaz App, http://gorillaz.com and Gorillaz Facebook.

To kick off the actual week of release for Humanz, Gorillaz has announced an intimate, once-in-a-lifetime close-up performance at Rough Trade NYC (located in Brooklyn) on Tuesday, April 25th—doors open at 8pm, show starts at 9pm. To be one of the lucky few to score a ticket, stop by Rough Trade NYC April 25th and pre-order the album to receive a wristband for entry to the show (limit one per person, wristbands will be placed on at time of purchase).

As an extension of the Sonos and Gorillaz Spirit House, Gorillaz will also unveil an exclusive installation of Jamie Hewlett’s original artwork at the Sonos flagship store at 101 Greene Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. The custom installation will be on display starting April 26th, and will feature a selection of Gorillaz artwork carefully created and curated by Hewlett from his personal archive.

If that’s not enough Gorillaz, never fear! Tune in to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on April 27th to catch an extraordinary appearance of the band featuring Damon Albarn, Seye Adelekan, Jesse Hackett, Mike Smith, Karl Vanden Bossche, Gabriel Wallace, Jeff Wooton PLUS several special guests.

And the global fascination for Gorillaz will continue when Humanz takes to the road this summer–with special pop-up guest appearances from many more of the album’s featured artists, drawing from a stellar lineup including Jehnny Beth (Savages), Danny Brown, Benjamin Clementine, De La Soul, D.R.A.M., Peven Everett, Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Zebra Katz, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Popcaan, Pusha T, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis, among others.

Rapper In Trouble Over Extreme Dine And Dash Maneuver

(PCM) A wannabe Australian rapper Terry Peck who goes by the nickname “2Pec” went to extreme measures to avoid paying for his dinner at an upscale seafood restaurant on Australia’s Main Beach. Perhaps he just wanted to see where his meal came from because he ended up dining and dashing, literally running straight into the ocean. Could this have been more like a dine and splash?

It seems that “2Pec” did not feel like paying for the over $600 bill he had racked up at Omeros Bros Restaurant, so when the bill came to the table he took off running onto the beach. He was chased down by restaurant staff members, but ended up jumping straight into the ocean at Surfer’s Paradise in Main Beach and decided to make a swim for it!

The Courier Mail is reporting that 2Pec’s meal consisted of  two lobsters, a baby octopus and 21 vodka oyster shots and “a number of Coronas,” which came to over $600. So, it is completely understandable why the restaurant would be upset and want him apprehended.

2Pec tried to defend his actions by saying that he ran before paying because he friend was going in to labor and was going to be having a baby on the beach. We have to give him credit for trying such an elaborate excuse, but the story failed to pan out. He even went as far as to say that the restaurant actually owed him an apology because the lobster was overcooked and there was a shell in one of the oysters. Really???

He said he had planned to return and pay for the meal, but when he jumped into the ocean “searching” for his pregnant friend he conveniently lost his wallet. 2Pec refused to swim back to shore so authorities were sent out on jet skis to literally reel him back in. He was taken to jail, but was able to post bail and must remain at a property in Labrador until his set court appearance.

Something tells us he won’t be revisiting this restaurant anytime in the future, but he certainly did make a splash!

Britney Spears Causing Israel To Postpone A Major Election

(PCM) The words Britney Spears and politics do not often go hand in hand, however it appears that Spears is the cause of the country of Israel to postpone a major political election. The reason behind the election’s cancellation is due to the fact that Spears is scheduled to perform a concert in Tel Aviv on the same night as the election.

We can’t believe that a pop star would have that type of power … oh, wait, yes we can! Spears’ popularity is strong enough to shift the political tide. The Israel Labor Party is concerned that traffic from individuals attending the Britney Spears concert would cause difficulties for people attempting to make their way to the polling stations to vote. There was also some concern about security in the area as well.

While the Israeli election committee does not name Spears directly as the cause for changing the election date from July 3rd to July 4th, the claim the cause is due to a “major event” taking place in the area. It ha already been revealed that Spears will be playing a show in Tel Aviv on the date, so it is quite simple to put two and two together.

This is no small election for Israel as it is an election where the Israel Labor Party elects its’ new leaders and is often the center of quite a bit of controversy and animosity. Who knows? Maybe Britney Spears can help ease this “Toxic” situation!

About The Awesome Fest:
The Awesome Fest was created in 2010 by promoter Josh Goldbloom as a scrappy DIY community project designed to showcase innovative and cutting edge independent cinema in unique and non-traditional spaces throughout the City of Philadelphia.

Since then, the annual summer outdoor film & music festival has featured well over 250 screenings, concerts, stand-up comics, and art installations, completely FREE to all who attend. Most recently, The Awesome Fest built Center City Philadelphia’s first ever drive-in movie theater, produced the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival in Chicago (now in its third year!), launched a 10 week celebration of the 1980’s, hosted an all night horror movie marathon outdoors in the woods at a summer camp, and presented Philly’s largest pizza party ever with Macaulay Culkin’s THE PIZZA UNDERGROUND to a crowd of nearly 10,000 people! There was also that time we attempted to launch a piece of bacon into outer space. We’ll save that story for another time…

Someone Attempted To Sell A Bag Of Air That Contained Adele’s Breath On Ebay!

(PCM) No, we are not kidding! Someone on Ebay was attempting to sell a bag of air that was allegedly breathed by Adele during her recent “25” concert tour for the amount of $2,000! Let alone wanting to meet the person who was trying to pull this off, we would love to feast our eyes on the person who would be willing to drop that much money on a bag of literal air.

We suppose the seller,@shaun_mcdonough, gets some kind of points for creativity as the Ebay listing, which has since been removed claimed that the air was “legit” and was captured by McDonough at Adele’s recent concert. The auction began at $14.95 and skyrocketed up to $2,000 before Ebay caught on, however we can’t help but wonder just how high the price would have gone had Ebay kept the listing live.

The Ebay posting also included a photo snapped by McDonough of a Adele at the show to prove that they were really in attendance and within the proper distance to capture the air in a bag. After the first listing was removed McDonough tried once again to list the bag of Adele air, but not surprisingly the second auction was also removed. When posting the second listing, McDonough included a note he received from Ebay in regards to the first posting which read, “We’ve determined that some of your listings haven’t followed our No Item policy… To protect both buyers and sellers, buyers should be able to verify an item after receiving it. Listings that don’t offer an item for sale, or where the existence of the item for sale can’t be verified, aren’t allowed.”

It would be pretty hard to verify a bag of air and what about shipping! How would you be sure that the air would not leak out of the bag should it become ripped or damaged. Looks like no one will be owning any Adele air anytime soon!
