Broken Social Scene have been added to the lineup for the Olympic Island concert on August 7 at with Sloan, Sam Roberts and a slew of others. They had originally been connected with some Modest Mouse tour dates in the US, but those seem to have quietly been taken off the board.

Britain’s Hope Of The States will be at Lee’s Palace on July 26th, tickets $13. You may have heard of them as their guitarist died in the studio this past January while recording their debut album, The Lost Riots. Michelle, whose site is now back up, says they sound like Godspeed with vocals and recommends them. Okay.

Also from the UK, Gomez are making up their Lollapalooza date August 6 at the Opera House Phoenix.

Check out the video for The Shins’ “Kissing The Lipless” at No world conquering penguins like in the “So Says I” vid, unfortunately. From Slatch.

Billboard has some info on a couple of reissues being released by Rhino on August 3. You’ve probably already heard about the upcoming reissue of The Velvet Underground’s Live At Max’s Kansas City – In case you were looking for specifics on the release or a reason to replace the 1972 edition you already have, here’s the skinny.

Also coming out that day are the next batch of Elvis Costello reissues. Double-disc remastered editions of Almost Blue, Goodbye Cruel World and Kojak Variety will be out on August 3 – details here.

Grandaddy are releasing a DVD of their bearded selves doing various bearded things on October 26.

Update: My server is having some hiccups that have disabled the photo galleries. Trying to get that sorted out now.

    Woo Hoo! Sorta new Velvet Underground! I picked up the 2-disc "Fully Loaded" at Soundscapes on the weekend and, frankly, have listened to nothing else since.
