The Horrors head out on a North American tour in September. We mentioned that the tour includes ATP NJ and a NYC show on October 4 at Webster Hall right afterwards. No need to wait that link to see the UK band though. The Horrors will pay a visit to the US at the end July. We don’t know what else they’ll do while they’re here but you can catch them on July 28 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for the intimate show go on sale Saturday at 10 AM.
The Horrors’ new album Skying gets released on August 9 via XL.
The show by “American Idol” Season 9 runner-up Crystal Bowersox at Lehigh University’s Stabler Arena announced Thursday may include a third-place “Idol” finisher as well.
Eliott Yamin, who finished behind Taylor Hicks and Katharine McPhee in 2006, is listed on the Pollstar magazine’s web site as playing Stabler on Sept. 10, the same day that Bowersox.
In addition, Lehigh announced on the Stabler site that the show will be a benefit for juvenile diabetes, with the title Rev It Up for Juvenile Diabetes. Part of the proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the announcement said.

Both Bowersox and Yamin are diabetics. Bowersox’s

The city of Berlin says renowned conductor Daniel Barenboim has signed a new contract to remain musical director of its Staatsoper opera house for another decade.
The Israeli-Argentinean conductor has been in the role since 1992.
Mayor Klaus Wowereit said Wednesday the new contract for the 68-year-old would take effect when his current one expires at the end of the month.
The famous opera’s 19th-century home on Unter den Linden boulevard in what used to be East Berlin is currently under construction and will reopen at the beginning of the 2014-2015 season.
The Staatsoper has moved across town to the Schiller Theater during the restoration work.
It’s one of three major opera houses in the German capital.
The robots’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through this Independence Day weekend that the Transformers franchise still had muscle to spare. Transformers: Dark of the Moon, third in Michael Bay’s HASBRO-Spielberg series of epic-length, fortissimo toy commercials, earned $97.4 million during the standard three-day weekend, and $116.4 million for the four-day holiday frame, according to early studio estimates. In its first six-and-a-half days, from Tuesday-night screenings through July 4th, the 3-Destructo-fest will have earned about $181 million in North America. Those mighty numbers left all competitors in the rubble, including Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, whose recession-era romantic comedy Larry Crowne took in just $15.7 million from Friday to Monday, or about a seventh of the Transformers haul.
Optimus Prime and his bot pals hit a goal that most blockbusters aim for: attracting customers who are young (55% of the audience was under 25) and male (62%) and willing to pay extra for the bells, whistles and tinted glasses.
