Music Mountain Matakana Bush Party happening this saturday.
I'm DJing at this event, alongside Rhombus, Katchafire, Open Souls and the mighty Mad Professor! Looking forward to it - the venue looks awesome. Info here. Tickets here

Also, Music Mountain has donated 250 tickets to the UNICEF fund raising effort to raise funds for the children affected by the Haiti disaster.  100% of the price of these tickets will be given to UNICEF. People can choose the UNICEF option to purchase their tickets instead of the general admission option at Eventfinder to defer their ticket money across to UNICEF. Very cool.
Best awards acceptance speech of all time (sorry, Kanye)

Awards speech as performance art. Fever Ray looks like a rather pretty young Swedish woman, but here she looks a little, different. Via Pampelmoose

What's wrong with radio...
"I haven' t used my tuner in years..."
This great clip is from the documentary "Before the music dies" .Makes you realise that Auckland has some great, adventurous radio stations,  like BaseFM, BFM, KFM and so on...
