Holy Ghost! seem to have made a habit out of creating hommages to their favorite childhood memories. Last year’s “I Will Come Back” was a pitch-perfect rendition of New Order‘s “Confusion” video, complete with guest spot by legendary electro producer Arthur Baker reprising his roll from the original clip. The duo’s latest, “I Wanted To Tell Her,” is a cover of ’80s-era Ministry (before they went industrial) and features not only DFA colleagues Juan Maclean and Nancy Whang, but comic relief from John Hodgman, in a video that recreates the BMX-prom scene from ’80s cult classic Rad.

I never thought Yelawolf would be a mannequin…but then again, who would ever know that.
But more fun than that Push It video are some fresh tour dates for the identity festival which will have Jessie on the road with everyone form Holy Ghost! to Skrillex to Chad Hugo of NERD . Oh yeah. The Femme Fatale Tour? I wonder how she will do laundry on a big expensive tour bus though.
Ahhhhh yes … the month of March in Miami is known for two things: cheesy spring breakers and out-of-town ravers. Some might say they go hand in hand but this past weekend, March 25-27 to be exact, Miami was overflowing with some international jetsetting, glowstick toting, furry-boots wearing, high-class raving little monsters that Lady Gaga would be deathly proud of. Ultra Music Festival 2011 was an epic 3-day EDM heaven, proof that God is indeed a raver. Over 100,000 people from all over the globe (Brazil and Holland, to be exact) descended onto what used to be Winter Music Conference week. Yet with this year’s weird date change which resulted in WMC arriving a little earlier, it didn’t deter anyone from not experiencing UMF13 in all …
