What's New(s)?

Ticket prices for Beyoncé/Jay Z "On the Run" have dropped

While speculation continues to run rampant about the Knowles/Carter family elevator incident, Forbes is reporting that resale ticket prices for their massive summer tour have fallen since the footage was first released by TMZ. Culling from TiqIq, Forbes' Jess Lawrence writes that "average price across all "On the Run" tour dates was $306.22, behind only Justin Timberlake and Paul McCartney for the most expensive tour of the summer on the secondary market." Since last Monday, that $306.22 price tag has dipped to $264.73, which still sits in the top 5 for summer tours, but represents a 13.5% decrease in just over a week's time.

That decline comes despite a pubic statement intended to quash the story and a recent promo video which features everyone from Sean Penn to Don Cheadle and Rashida Jones. While the statement has seen mixed success at best, the fake trailer promo has been popular enough that fans are asking for the married couple to make it into an actual movie. So yet again, Ann Perkins maybe the one who saves the day after all.

(The tour kicks off June 25 and tour dates can be found below, along with the "Run" video.)

Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis set to release a new solo album




Nearly three years have passed since Dinosaur Jr. guitarist J Mascis released his gorgeous debut solo album Several Shades of Why, and now fans of the LP have follow-up Tied To A Star to look forward to. While guesting on Late Night with Seth Myers, the traditionally reserved Mascis let Myers break the news that the new LP would be "out this summer" on Sub-Pop. Other than that small bit of info and the above album cover, there isn't much known about the album, but Mascis' week-long stint with Late Night bandleader Fred Armisen and the 8G Band may lead to more details. 

As for Dinosaur Jr., the indie rock guitar gods will be headlining New York's 4 Knots Festival on July 12, as a replacement for the Julie Ruin whose lead singer Kathleen Hanna is currently battling Lyme's Disease. Dates for the trio can be seen below and you can watch the Late Night clip here (Mascis begins near the 4:40 mark).

Tour Dates:
5/28 New York City, NY- Music Hall of Williamsburg
5/30 Nelsonville, OH- Nelsonville Music Festival
7/12 New York City, NY- 4 Knots Festival
7/18-7/20 Pemberton, BC- Pemberton Music Festival
11/7-11/9 Austin, TX- Fun Fun Fun Fest
