The two acts join forces later this month at the Allstate Area in Rosemont, IL and will continue on together until the middle of April. They'll squeeze a show at Barclay's Center in Brooklyn on April 7th. Check out the full list of tour dates for Best Coast below (even those after they part ways with Green Day).

It's entirely possible that Neptune welded all their instruments from the remnants of the scrap heap. It's what makes them innovative as artists and entertaining to watch at the same time. Whether it's from banging on giant saw blades or wielding giant metal guitars, City-dwellers should be sure not to miss the band when they hit Union Pool in Brooklyn on April 11. Dates for other cities are below. Neptune tour dates: 4/10 - New Haven, CT @ Bar 4/11 - Brooklyn, NY @ Union Pool 4/12 [...]
Recommended Show: FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 2013 GARBAGE @ TERMINAL 5 610 W 56th St New York, NY 10019 $35, 7PM If we felt like leaving the City, we might head out to see They Might Be Giants on Long Island. Instead, we're keeping it on island of Manhattan with Garbage at Terminal 5. Gotta love the 90s!

Okay, what can we say about the new Justin Timberlake album? We've been waiting a long time for it, and while it may not live up to EVERY expectation, it's still damn good. "Mirrors" is a strong second single, and it now has a video. Check it out above.
Recommended Show: THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 2013 SKY FERREIRA @ MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURG 66 N 6th St Brooklyn, NY 11211 $16, 8PM Maybe Sky Ferreira is gaining a bit of traction. Last time we recommended her show, she was playing Glasslands, and now she's at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. While we love Glasslands, MHOW is certainly a step up.

The one man party machine Andrew WK is about to let loose his wild act on the road. And he's not bringing a band with him this time. No, this is the solo party tour. In fact, he's dubbing it "The Human Party Machine Solo Tour." That pretty much sums up why you should go see Andrew while he's on the road. Note to New York City fans. We have to be thankful that AWK is an NYC resident and here all the time, because there's no City show on the schedule. [...]

Do you miss the early 2000s already? Well, don't fret, bands like The Strokes haven't gone anywhere. They have a new video for "All the Time" (above) and a new album dropping later this month.
This is Pitbull 's new video for "Feel This Moment." Judging from the footage, it looks like Mr. Worldwide didn't stay in Kodiak, Alaska after his trip to WalMart up there.

There's been so much buzz surrounding the new Justin Timberlake record (pictured) that we almost thought it was already released LAST week, but we checked the date to make sure that it's still scheduled for this Tuesday. However, if you haven't heard it streaming somewhere by now, we'd be surprised. Foot Village 's Make Memories has also been out digitally for so long now that the physical release this week feels almost redundant. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club also have an album out this week; The London Suede too! Check out a [...]

Maybe SXSW is to blame, but this week seems a little light on the new albums. Sure, okay, the new David Bowie album is out this week (pictured), and who wants to compete with Bowie? No one! Regardless, it seems like a few are trying. Amos Lee has a DVD out, for instance. The World/Inferno Friendship Society have a comic book. Tape Deck Mountain have an EP. What's going to gain traction this week with that huge music festival going down in Austin? It's hard to tell, but we certainly [...]

We're just going to say Julianna Barwick is an amazing performer and let the video for "Offing" speak for itself.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion are one of the many great bands to come out of the 90s. A few years ago, it seemed like their days of rock were behind them, but a funny little thing happened in recent memory. A few performances here and there has lead to a pretty regular schedule for the band, and so that leads us to today. The band have announced a few summer dates with a few more likely forthcoming. Check out the list below. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion tour dates: 06/14/13 - [...]
