BEATLES AND R.E.M.
Jess fell in love with these bands at a young age and not at all embarrassed about it. Better tastes than me: who fell in love with Information Society, Phil Collins, and Wilson Phillips (this was not discussed).
Personally I love that R.E.M.'s Out of Time-era. I do really love Eponymous and Murmur (which I reviewed the Deluxe Edition).
THE ROLLING STONES
The legendary Rolling Stones formed in 1962, and fifty years later, they are still together. Last month (October), the band played their first gig as a band in five years. And they're just "starting up", with a few other live dates announced this year:
11/29/12 London, United Kingdom The O2 - London
12/08/12 Brooklyn, NY Barclays Center
12/13/12 Newark, NJ Prudential Center
12/15/12 Newark, NJ Prudential Center
If you're a hardcore fan and already own all the selected singles, you'd be pleased to note that the new compilation also feature two brand new songs called "Doom and Gloom" and "One More Shot."
We've seen this before with other band reunion, notably The Beach Boys and The Stone Roses - where the band members all hate each other. Will it last long enough for them to enjoy the mad cash or "the music that matters"?
Vaccines: Come of Age
Jess was rather impressed by Miner, who played their very first show at the The Echo, Los Angeles (10/23/12). I was rather star struck when I saw that Daisy Betts, actress tweeted the link (she's one of the few women on the submarine.)
It also looks like San Cisco will be opening up for Vaccines! I really love the Vaccines, so this is a match made in heaven.

MOTH AND THE FLAME
Jess attended two The Moth & Flame shows, you can read about her Bootleg Theater, Los Angeles (11/06/12) and listen to her talk about the "industry-event" for The Moth and the Flame at in Los Angeles.
Tame Impala: Lonerism
Tame Impala just played a bunch of sold out shows in America. Jess loves these guys and had the opportunity to see them at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on November 17th. Expect to read all about it soon.
Song of the show is Tame Impala's "Elephant" from their latest LP Lonerism.
