Carl Barat closed his US mini tour last night at Santa Monica's Troubadour club (see NME.com): "Former Dirty Pretty Things and The Libertines man Carl Barat opened for Glasvegas, performing songs from both of his former bands as well as solo material. Barat stood on stage alone with his electric guitar, except when he was joined by Glasvegas' Allan, who harmonised with him on the chorus of 'Blood Thirsty Bastards'." The club was packed with stars, people like Lise Marie Presley, Rick Rubin (ach! A producer!), and of course Tim Burgess.
And now something for Italian people only: it seems that "Pete Doherty in 24 hours" is going to be aired in 15 minutes on Italian music channel MTV Brand New. At least this is what I read here. It seems quite strange to me but I've switched my recorder on anyway. Then I'll tell you what happened. Later!
