Polia is headed to Lollapalooza this weekend with some news that will lift its profile even higher: Mom + Pop Music a New York indie label featuring the likes of Andrew Bird and Metric will rerelease the Minneapolis band's debut, "Give You the Ghost," on Aug. 14. The new edition of the record will be bundled with a remix EP, featuring album tracks reimagined by the likes of Gardens Villa.

The group had offers from bigger indie shops even back then but didn't cheap air jordan retro 17 want to wait for slowmoving labels and wanted to learn about the business with a selfrelease. Working with Mom + Pop should be another learning experience. Polia, however, doesn't seem to be changing the rest of its game plan.

'I'm on a tank!'
Rappers have a history of riding around in tanks in music videos. Typically, such a show of overthetop bravado is reserved for superstar rappers with big budgets. Safe to say, the crew behind the Tribe Big Cats! www.cheapjordans.us/air-jordan-retro-112012/air-jordan-retro-1820 are not multimillionaires, nor are they trying to showcase their military might. They just want to have a little bit of fun. The Twin Cities crew has cheap jordans retro 16 shot a stunning new video featuring a reallife military tank. For the song, "DMT Flow" (off the recently released "Space" album), the guys spent the day in Kasota, Minn., with a company called Drive a Tank. Apparently, it's one of the only places in North America where civilians can legally drive tanks. In the video, rapper TruthBeTold rhymes for the camera as he barrels down country roads on top of a British war machine. The group's manager, Conrad Schoenleber, summed up the experience: "All in all, an awesome day of shooting guns and driving tanks."
Gotye on the go
Maybe that megahit wasn't such a big deal after all. Even though he has one of the biggest songs of the year, Australian electropop star Gotye's Aug. 26 concert at Target Center has been relocated to Myth nightclub in Maplewood. All tickets to the original location will be honored, but since Myth is a generaladmission venue, there will be no reserved seating. Tough luck if you got frontrow seats. Refunds will also be offered starting Aug. 10 at point of purchase.

Slow ticket sales certainly seems like a plausible one. Bank Theater at Target Center configuration, which basically means the arena is cut in half with curtains. Ironically, his previous Twin Cities show in April just before his "Somebody That I Used to Know" www.cheapjordans.us/air-jordan-retro-112012/air-jordan-retro-1719 went to No. 1 also changed locations, in that case moving from the Varsity Theater to the thricebigger Epic nightclub, which he sold cheap air jordan 19 shoes out.
In the wake of international media going absolutely bonkers for Walker Art Center's Internet Cat Video Film Festival, we have some important updates to report. The museum has tallied a whopping 7,000 cheap retro air jordan 18 nominations since online voting began in early July. The winners, picked by staff and public voting, will be shown at the Walker's Open Field Aug. 30. The Walker is taking full advantage of this surprising fervor. For one, they've created cat fest merchandise in the form of three Tshirts (available on the website). They've also designed a signature cat cocktail called "The Cat's Meow" (Prairie Organic Vodka with cherry, pomegranate and ginger). OK, let's say you're too busy Aug. 30 to watch cat videos on the side of a building www.cheapjordans.us/air-jordan-retro-112012/air-jordan-retro-1618 with 1,000 other people. Don't worry, the whole festival will be viewable on the Walker's YouTube page (whew!).
