Zoeey Deschanel, one half of She and Him and New Girl TV star, held down the quirky quotient at this year’s White House Correspondent’s dinner on Saturday night.

Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich debuted new songs from their Atoms For Peace supergroup during their DJ set at an LA club over the weekend.

Pollstar reports that  the Brit Electronic band Does It Offend You, Yeah?  is on an indefinite hiatus.

Occupy This Album, the four disc set, plus bonus cd is out May 15th. It features: Willie Nelson, Anti Flag, Patti Smith and Girls Against Boys to name a few. Need to hear it now, click here to stream. On a related note, Occupy supporter Tom Morello will be the musical guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight.

Ex-Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson stated earlier this month that late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was working on solo demos before his death in 1994. Nevermind producer Butch Vig has responded to that claim saying, “He was working on songs, but they were just in his head. He might have just played them to Eric.”

The duo Jack Black and Kyle Gas, better known as Tenacious D, are streaming their new album Rize Of The Fenix online. It’s available for download May 15th. Check out the video preview below.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
