• Virginia rapper Pusha T, while opening for foodstagrammer extraordinaire 2 Chainz at Showbox Sodo last week, brought out Seattle Seahawk Kam Chancellor to wave at everybody. The show also reportedly included much stand-in-one-place-and-mostly-just-move-your-arms-so-you-still-look-tough dancing from the crowd, and our sources say most every dude in attendance was very good at it.

Tendai Maraire of Shabazz Palaces apparently recorded a music video in the house of none other than Rich Jensen, the former president of Sub Pop and cofounder of Up Records. Jensen has also started a new label called Cabin Games—more info soon.

• The soundtrack to the first season of Twin Peaks and the subsequent prequel film Fire Walk with Me will be rereleased on coffee-and-cherry-colored vinyl. Whatever that looks like.

• Austin's Shearwater played an emotional set at the Crocodile on Saturday evening—complete with passionate hand gestures from the keyboardist/backup singer—ending their encore with a spot-on cover of Roxy Music's "Virginia Plain."

• The packed-to-the-rafters Miley Cyrus show at the Tacoma Dome on Sunday was a parade of Miley look-alikes with adorably varying degrees of success. The key replicated feature, Miley's Bangerz-era hair nubs, were attempted on roughly 80 percent of the audience's heads—the best were tidy little anime nubbins; others looked like what would be found unraveling on the heads of sweaty Soviet gymnasts. For more on the show, see Last Days, page 7.

Arthur, the great counterculture/head-music zine run out of Joshua Tree, California, is ceasing operations. It had made a strong three-issue comeback in 2013 after a long hiatus, but now publisher Jay Babcock is retiring the title—for the foreseeable future, anyway. You can order back issues at until March 2.

• Spotted in a record store over the weekend: a vinyl copy of Stephen Malkmus and Friends' interpretation of Can's all-time kraut-rock classic LP Ege Bamyasi. "Sacrilege," Can aficionados cry. Adding insult to injury, the album—a 2013 limited-edition Record Store Day release on Matador—was selling for $50. Bummer, babe.

• Capitol Hill was serenaded by video-game and anime theme music on Saturday night from D20, a "100% nerd funk" brass band. The musical adventure started in Cal Anderson Park at 8 p.m. and resulted in many experience points.

Ned Lannaman, music editor of The Stanger's little sister, the Portland Mercury, came up to Seattle this weekend and was spotted enjoying a Mickey-Mouse-shaped pancake at the Hi Spot Cafe on Saturday morning. Music editors, they're just like us! recommended
