Friday Micro News
A busy week has kept me away from my trusty laptop this week. The need to earn a living can really be distracting. This weeks Micro News features updates from The National, Mission of Burma, Arcade Fire, and Radiohead
On May 20th The National will release A Skin, A Night. A film that was director by Vincent Moon. The film captures the creative process of the band in the studio recording the fantastic Boxer. You can check out the trailer here. A Skin, A Night will be accompanied by The Virginia EP. The 12 song EP will include demos, live versions,British B-sides and an unreleased track, You've Done it Again, Virginia.
The Virginia EP's track listing:

Congratulations to Arcade Fire for being presented with Alternative Album of the Year at Canada's Juno Awards on Sunday night.
Let's pretend that you've been out of the country or trapped under something heavy and haven't heard the long awaited confirmation of the Radiohead show at The Tweeter Center on August 13th. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow at 10:00 AM via the usual ticket outlets. So I guess I'll be spending my Saturday morning in front of my computer hitting the refresh button. Good luck if you'll be in the hunt.
