Foo Fighters have canceled the rest of their tour.
It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour. In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can't continue right now. There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.

A lot of terrible things are happening in France right now, including dozens of hostages being held at an Eagles of Death Metal concert. From The New York Times:
Shootings and explosions erupted in the Paris area on Friday night, and French news services said at least 39 people were dead, dozens wounded and others taken hostage in what appeared to be coordinated militant attacks.

Alyssa Kai, writing for The Guardian (I missed this when it was originally posted):
If there is one ethos of punk, and especially DIY (Do It Yourself) punk, it is that the punk world is for everybody: anyone can sing, anyone can play, anyone can listen, anyone can participate. But in reality, men run the scene, men are the scene, and men always have been and probably always will be at the center of the scene. As a trans woman, sometimes I just go through the motions: I do my work, I perform my best, I seek out my moments of joy.

But itís never perfect, and itís occasionally awful: without warning, in the audience or on a stage, Iíll hear someone say, ďThis song is about feminism,...

The Future of Music Collation has written up an explainer on mechanical royalties:
You may have heard about controversies over unpaid mechanical royalties on the interactive streaming service Spotify. For us, the bottom line is that songwriters must be properly paid when their music is played on any service. In this post, weíll examine the reasons this isnít happening across the board.

First, it might be helpful to understand a bit more about what a mechanical royalty is, how it is licensed and whom it pays.

This week's episode of Encore tackles world building in movies and where it works (Star Wars, Marvel, etc.) and where it fails (Spectre). We talk quite a bit about Star Wars in this one -- spurred by a certain someone live tweeting their first viewing of the series mere minutes before we started recording. We also look at the death of Cobra Starship, Brand New recording, and answer a variety of listener topics: how often we go to shows, do we play instruments, should Blink-182 re-record old music with Matt Skiba, is pop-punk trying too hard, did pop-punk rule the world this year, what is up with cassette tapes, what do we think of @FutureAltPress, do our significant others shape our...

I've always been a big fan of DC hardcore and the Dischord Records sound. So it's no surprise that I like Slow Code. A clear throwback to that era of post-hardcore, "The Patron Saint of Architecture" is streaming exclusively on the band's profile. It comes from the band's debut EP Marketable Skills, out December 18. Keep your eye on them if you're at all a fan of Fugazi, etc.

Will Butler of Arcade Fire recently reviewed Grimes' new album, Art Angels, for The Talkhouse. It's ... interesting.
Thereís a lot of filter sweeps on the bass and drums, either at the starts of songs or the ends of songs or in the middle of songs, and it instantly makes me feel like Iím listening to ĎIím blue boo da ba dee da boo die doo daba dee daboo die.Ē Thatís just the song that was everywhere in my teenage years, and I hated it. And I hate it still.
