Decemberists Webcast From 9:30; Cobain Tops The King; Flash Concerts 2006
NPR kicks tail. The Decemberists will be broadcast from the 9:30 Club on Monday, October 30, and later streamed, here.
Kurt Cobain has bested Elvis Presley as the top-earning dead celeb, according to Forbes.com. This was Cobain's first year on the chart, and he raked in $50 Million from October 2005 to October 2006. The numbers are based on licensing deals for the artists' image or recordings. Chances are this will be Kurt's only time topping the charts, since the numbers are bloated because of Courtney's sale of a 1/4 share of the Nirvana catalog this year. Source: Billboard
