The Foo Fighters treated about 1,000 lucky fans attending a Rock the Vote concert at the Fillmore in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday (Sept. 5) to what Billboard reports is believed to be the band’s longest concert ever — a three-and-a-half hour, 35-song, career-spanning set. ”Tonight we play as long as we want and as much as we want,” frontman Dave Grohl told the intimate crowd — and apparently, they wanted lots of both.
The Black Keys originally planned to have some sort of narrative arc underpinning their video for ‘Little Black Submarines,’ the fourth single off their ‘El Camino’ album, but they ultimately decided to go with a live clip. “We all just sort of kind of mutually agreed that it should probably just be the performance and not any of the other extra stuff,” singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach told Rolling Stone of the Danny Clinch-directed video, which was filmed in front of a small group of fans at a dive bar in their adopted hometown of Nashville called Springwater Supper Club.
Dave Grohl told the massive crowd watching his Foo Fighters perform at the Reading festival on Sunday night (Aug. 26) in Reading, England that the concert would be the band’s last show for a long time — directly contradicting the Foo Fighters’ itinerary, which has four more U.S. festival appearances still scheduled for 2012.

Swedish sisterly duo First Aid Kit are wise well beyond their years. Comprised of Johanna Soderberg, who is in her early 20s, and her little sib Klara, still in her teens, they earned rave reviews back in 2010 for their debut album, ‘The Big Black and the Blue,’ then embarked on a lengthy world tour that tightened them up as a live act. By the time their sophomore album, ‘The Lion’s Roar,’ dropped in January of this year, First Aid Kit were hands down one of the most popular musical exports coming out of Sweden.

Don’t worry. The documentary about the legendary Sound City Studios, in Van Nuys, Calif., that’s being produced and directed by Dave Grohl is still on the way. In fact, a third teaser trailer about the ‘Sound City’ flick has just been posted, which you can check out below.
