4. Posters for the upcoming Lou Reed X Metallica collab album, Lulu, have been banned from London's subways because they "look too much like graffiti." The album is out on October 31. [NME]
5. Mystery group to play mystery location. Highly-tipped dance duo Tiger & Woods (whoever they are) will be playing a big warehouse party (location TBA) in Brooklyn on Saturday, September 24. Tickets ($20) are still available here. We picked up a copy of their album, Through the Green, in Amsterdam over the summer and haven't stopped dancin' yet. Their minimal grooves are just familiar enough to fill a dance floor and are extremely DJ-friendly.
6. The Canadian Air & Space Museum in Toronto closed to make room for a hockey rink. [CBC News]
7. After a disastrous shut-down by the city, Coco66 is apparently re-applying for a liqour license. Meanwhile, beloved Greenpoint dive bar bar/venue Van Gogh's Radio might also be returning. [NYShitty]
