Here’s a little lookee at what’s going on in the musical twitter-world.

  • Hayley Williams from Paramore and Beth Cosentino of Best Coast continue their unlikely friendship by griping about suspicious advertising from the High Fructose Corn Syrup lobby. Yes.
  • Ringtone rap one-hit-wonder Soulja Boy just got out of the pen. Well, out on bond after getting nabbed for being in a car with five ounces of weed. Hustlin’.
  • KISS huckster Gene Simmons posts up photos from his long-awaited wedding. Not tacky enough.
  • Electro star Steve Aoki shills for his buddy Dillon Francis’ new EP. Aoki-approved.
  • Wanna hear eight new songs from Washington? She’s linked up a stream of her new EP ‘Insomnia’. Thanks, Megan!
  • The lovely Gillian Welch posts up a rather neat set-list photo from her recent Michigan set.
  • Young pop-punks Tonight Alive are trying their hands at an acoustic set for the first time in Sydney! This should be interesting.
  • Top-hatted rock survivor Slash has been in the studio and the rough mixes sound “great”. We believe him.
  • Hip-hop monk Sage Francis gets all stalker-y over Natalie Portman, deservedly so.
  • Awww, Skrillex misses Australia. It’s cool, little dubstep bro. You’ll be here for Future Music soon.
