Video: The Cure – “Hello Goodbye” (The Beatles Cover)

posted by Oscar September 10, 2014

This is perfection.

This coming November 18 will see the release of The Art Of McCartney, a tribute album dedicated to the work of one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th Century: Sir Paul McCartney. The special compilation will feature covers from Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), KISS, Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Smokey Robinson, Alice Cooper, and many others.

Our first look at this album comes via The Cure, who brought along James McCartney (Paul’s son) to help them play a gorgeous rendition of The Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye.” It’s just brilliant from start to end, with the band playing a version of the song that’s pretty close to the original but with just enough Cure quirks to make it their own.

Official Lollapalooza Lineup 2013 [Update]

posted by Oscar April 1, 2013


Just days after 3-Day Passes were sold-out, a new Lollapalooza 2013 lineup has leaked. It looks legit, but then again, so many other leaked lineups have also looked like the real deal… And indeed it was legit. If (T)his is really this year’s lineup, (so) us at POD and the rest of the festival’s attendees will have to choose between headliners like The Cure, Mumford & Sons, The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend and New Order.

Some of the other notable acts found on the list are Queens of the Stone Age, The Lumineers, Kendrick Lamar, Steve Aoki, Imagine Dragons, The Vaccines, 2 Chainz, Wavves, Alt-J, Jake Bugg and Foals. Our (Chicago) scene is well-represented on the list with the Orwells, Chance The Rapper, and Smith Westerns making the cut.

See the full, supposed official Lolla 2013 lineup after the jump. Daily breakdown is also now available.
