Monday’s Hors D’Oeuvres: My$pace

While nearly every band in the world has a presence on MySpace, only a few of them are actually making money from the site. That may change with last week’s announcement that nearly all of the major labels have signed on for the social-networking site’s new MySpace Music initiative.

Artists will now be able to sell downloads, merchandise and concert tickets directly through their MySpace site. Details are still a bit sketchy, but we expect this deal to be a big winner for everybody involved.

And now, without further ado: here are a buncha links to kick off the week:

And finally, Perry Farrell has confirmed that the Lollapalooza lineup that Jim DeRogatis leaked on Friday was indeed correct. Farrell also took a shot at DeRo, who responds with a smackdown on his blog.

  1. i don;t know if i’d really call DeRogatis’ response a ‘smackdown’

    also, Perry’s shot at DeRogatis was basically a “keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer” type of thing.

    Respecting DeRogatis, I really don’t understand why he would leak this stuff. He’s biting the hand that feeds him there.

    despite his and Perry’s previous tifts, I still don’t understand the rationale in releasing this lineup.


  2. Isn’t it a journalist’s job to uncover the lineup as quickly as possible? Lolla is a big story in Chicago, why should he hold off?
