Sebadoh Plan Reissue and Reunion Tour
Nineties indie rockers Sebadoh have announced that their commercial breakthrough, the 1994 album Bakesale, will be reissued by Domino Records in April. The album, which was originally released by Sub Pop, will be remastered and expanded to include non-album tracks and rarities from the period. The group will go out on tour in February to play shows focusing on material from that record and its 1996 follow-up, Harmacy. [Pitchfork]

'Paul's Boutique' Storefront Burns Down
The storefront on the cover of the Beastie Boys' classic album Paul's Boutique was destroyed in a fire last night. The storefront on 99 Rivington Street in Manhattan has gone through several incarnations since it was immortalized on the Beasties sleeve — until yesterday, it housed a bar and restaurant called Three Monkeys.
