DOMINO PIZZAZ: In the 1980's, the only connection between dominos and entertainment was those interminable Record Breakers where people would set to breaking the record for domino toppling. Since 1993, however, Domino has been a splendid, thriving indie label (a rare enough beast in the last decade) and now they're celebrating with an orgy. A musical orgy, but an orgy nevertheless:

October 04 London ICA - Clinic, Hood;
October 12 London ICA - The Pastels, To Rococo Rot, Movietone;
October 13 London Cecil Sharp House - James Yorkston and The Athletes, King Creosote;
October 14 London Cecil Sharp House - Jason Loewenstein and Lou Barlow;
October 15 London Cecil Sharp House - Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Adem;
October 16 London Shepherds Bush Empire - Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Pram;
October 17 London The End - Four Tet, Mouse on Mars, Max Tundra; with DJ sets from John Peel, Pram, Franz Ferdinand, Cinema & Manitoba
October 21 London Astoria - The Kills, Quickspace, The Blueskins;
October 24 London Electrowerkz - Franz Ferdinand, I Love Lucy, Block Party, Joy Zipper; with DJ set from Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai
October 27 London Shepherds Bush Empire - Stephen Malkmus, Quasi, Archie Bronson Outfit

Which is a pretty fine line-up by anyone's standards.

Under the same link, and quite briefly: The Fall have got a new album due on October 27th; and the Von Bondies have signed to Sire. We presume they chose that label purely to piss Jack White off. Because it's all about the Jack.
