Nico Purman - Euphrasia

It's time to buttfuck this weekend:

Have a blast whatever you're up to.


From Resident Advisor:

The trio of Apparat and Modeselektor have once again teamed up to create Moderat, their full-length debut.

The unlikely pairing of electro crunk hipsters Modeselektor and the relatively laidback Sascha Ring only yielded an EP in 2002 when they got together to collaborate on some music. And when their solo careers took off, the idea of joining forces was shelved indefinitely. Late last year, however, they found themselves with some time on their hands and got back in the studio once again to craft Moderat, an all-analog album recorded in the same Berlin studio that housed David Bowie as he put Heroes to tape.

Per usual, the collaborators have invited even more collaborators. On vocal duties, we have Paul St. Hilaire, indie rapper Busdriver, Dellé and Ring himself. And, as if that weren't enough outside help, lead single "Rusty Nails" will feature remixes from Booka Shade and Shackleton, while Modeselektor's visual buddies Pfadfinderei will provide a music videos and more exclusive content for a planned DVD release of the album.

01. A New Error
02. Rusty Nails
03. Seamonkey
04. Slow Match feat. Paul St. Hilaire
05. 3 Minutes Of
06. Nasty Silence
07. Sick With It feat. Dellé
08. Porc # 1
09. Porc # 2
10. No. 22
11. Out Of Sight

Moderat will be at Webster Hall on Saturday, May 30 with support by dj Damian Lazarus.

OpenTable Files For IPO (Update)

OpenTable, the online restaurant reservation service, has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it is seeking an initial public offering with a price of between $12 and $14, the San Jose Mercury News reports. The company said that based on $13 per share, its expecting to reap about $16 million from the offering.

San Francisco-based OpenTable turned a profit in the first quarter in the face of a recession that has hit the company’s clients -- restaurants -- especially hard. The company made $366,000, which is an increase from a year earlier, when it lost $87,000.

OpenTable charges restaurants an one-time registration fee and takes a share of bills that were a result of OpenTable reservations. If the IPO happens, it will be the first Silicon Valley offering since ArcSight went public in February 2008.

The company is seeking the NASDAQ ticker symbol OPEN.
