US tour setlists - help needed

A big thank you to all those who've contributed setlists, reviews, photos etc for the gigography this year.

I've drawn a complete blank so far on the last three shows of the North American tour (Birmingham AL, Atlanta GA, Nashville TN) - anyone seen information on these three dates? I'm after something more reliable than links to setlist.fm, please - that site is worse than useless most of the time.

In similar vein - there must be other sizeable photography websites beyond Flickr? Suggestions welcome.

Mogwai's next two shows take place in Spain and Germany next weekend, then they have a well-earned break through June before undertaking a lengthy trawl around Europe in July.

Update - found Atlanta, just Birmingham AL and Nashville TN to find.

Update 2 - got Nashville (thanks Sam and Cayte), just Birmingham AL to find.

PIAS download compilation

There's a free mp3 download compilation of tracks from PIAS bands playing summer festivals here:

There's no tracklist info on the site, so I downloaded it out of curiosity - the Mogwai track is San Pedro - which is also released as a single on Monday (23rd May).

'Earth Division' - new ep


Mogwai are looking to keep the buzz surrounding their latest record Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (their seventh studio album and Sub Pop debut) rolling by releasing a new EP in the fall.

“It’s finished. There are some songs that we did at the same time as the album that we didn’t really feel fitted with the rest of the record,” guitarist Stuart Braithwaite tells AUX. “We just need to get the sleeve and stuff and bring it out in autumn.”

“We’re not 100 per cent, but I think we’re going to call it Earth Division EP,” he continues. “That’s the idea at the moment.”

Thanks Bear
