The General Specific

- LCD Soundsystem wrapped up their epic ten-year career with a near four-hour blowout at Madison Square Garden last Saturday. Everyone from Aziz Ansari (who got roughed up from crowd surfing) to Arcade Fire was there. Watch the full concert here.

- The night before, The Strokes warmed up the Garden with a sold out show that featured a guest appearance by Elvis Costello.

- My Morning Jacket is releasing a 12" single with a new song from Circuital on Record Store Day. Too bad it will only be available in Kentucky ...

- Speaking of Record Store Day (which is next Saturday), Ryan Adams posted photos on his website of the new EP he and the Cardinals will be releasing. Luckily, those will be available everywhere.

- Neil Young is prepping a new (well, old) live album that will contain five previously unreleased songs.

- The Decemberists visit Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform "This is Why We Fight."

- Bonnaroo added more artists and released their 2011 comedy lineup early this afternoon.

- Finally! A glimpse of the Beastie Boys' short film Fight for Your Right Revisited has been released. Spoiler alert: it's awesome.

Check back next week!
