Three is a magic number

Here's something to be thankful for: Amazon has a three-for-free mp3 offer, which is good through November 30. Use THIS LINK and follow the instructions to get three mp3s for free. Although you can use the offer to get any artist's music in Amazon's mp3 library, you might want to first review the Beastie Boys mp3 catalogue HERE to determine if you're missing anything. Perhaps The Mix-Up bonus tracks? Perhaps some of the special tracks on the remastered albums? Or maybe one of Adrock's remixes? And don't forget to review Mix Master Mike's and Money Mark's catalogue.

The mp3 offer is good only for U.S. residents. The link above is not unique, so feel free to pass it on to friends and family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Beastie Boys album set for release

My friend at Capital Records has confirmed that Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 is back on the label's schedule and will be released within the first three months of 2010. An exact street date will be announced soon.

Until a new release date was in the works, I didn't want to read, or refer others to read, any of the press or reviews that came out of the Beastie Boys' European press tour in June 2009, as I felt it would be a mean tease to read about an album that had an uncertain future. Now that the album is definitely back on track for release, I'll return to regularly posting updates and information on the album.

All about the kids

Beastie Boys have contributed a signed photo to the Rock for Kids Charity Auction. Rock for Kids is a non-profit organization that provides free music education to underprivileged kids and teens.

The photo will be auctioned off on December 4. Interested buyers may bid online at the Rock for Kids web site.

Beastie Boy turns DJ for a night

Adam Horovitz will be DJing at the Tony Clifton and Vaginal Davis concert at Santos Party House in New York City next Monday (November 16). Horovitz will share DJ duties with wife Kathleen Hanna and Gibby Haines (Butthole Surfers). Tickets to this 18+ show cost $20 and may be purchased online at Ticketweb.

Presumably, Horovitz and Hanna were invited to DJ at Clifton's and Davis' concert when the couple attended a benefit party recently at NYC gallery Participant Inc., where Davis exhibited artwork and Clifton provided the entertainment.

Beastie Boys remix Norah Jones

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, singer Norah Jones revealed that the Beastie Boys have completed a remix of a song on her new album, titled The Fall.

Norah Jones and the Beastie Boys? "We decided to have people I admire do some remixes," she explained.

The title of the Beastie Boys remix and the format in which it will be released are unknown. Details about the remix should surface closer to Jones' album release date of November 17.
