New Tunes From Shark Week, New Video From The Kingston Springs, Radio Stations 'Biting' Our 'Style,' Zadlo's Photos & Karaoke at The 5 Spot [News-ish Bits]

* Shark Week is the solo project of Mr. Christian Rigdon, who you may remember as The Tit who stands alone. Ever since The Tits’ rhythm section up and joined Turbo Fruits, former Tits guitarist/vocalist Rigdon has been working on his own stuff, which features all the raw, cock-rocking urgency you’d anticipate, delivered through a crunchy, lo-fi filter. Hear “Cracks in the Sidewalk” and “All Together Mao” at his Bandcamp site, and keep your ears peeled for an "I Am the Walrus" shout-out.

* Locals The Kingston Springs have a new video for their song “Little Girl,” and it features all kinds of lady-on-dude rejection. Times are hard for earnest indie-rock bros. Video looks good, though.

* Looks like a couple of CBS Radio affiliate stations — 106.5 The Mix in Baltimore and Kiss 95.1 in Atlanta — picked up our story about Lady Antebellum possibly repurposing Alan Parsons’ “Eye in the Sky” for their song “Need You Now.” You may “notice” the respective “radio” stations’ “overzealous” use of “quotation marks” throughout their “reporting” of the “story.” You may also notice that they “failed” to “link” to us. “Common courtesy.”

* Frequent Scene photographer Diana Lee Zadlo has a Tumblr, upon which she posts loads of shots from local/regional shows. She does good work for us, so if you want to see even more of her stuff, peep that site.

* UPDATE: Karaoke tomorrow night at The 5 Spot! According to Spot proprietor Todd Sherwood, the evening will be hosted by Gentleman Diver and Apollo Upper Mike Shepherd. Apparently, Shepherd's "system is somehow run with people's iPhones using iJams." See one of Shepherd's song lists here. This won't be a regular event, so don't miss it.
