News Roundup: Harlem Shakes and Pela Break Up, Jay-Z Has No Idea Who Lil Mama Is, and Counting Crows Are Playing for Free in Central Park
--This weekend saw a rash of New York band breakups, according to Brooklyn Vegan. Avant-twee Brooklyn quintet (and sometime Voice contributors) the Harlem Shakes have called it quits, maybe (get your sourcing game up, Viggo!). And sad sincere erstwhile local quartet Pela have definitely broken up. The announcement: "It is with great sadness that we write you today. Pela's collective journey has come to an end. Over the past 2 years we've faced tremendous obstacles. We recorded an album twice, had a falling out/legal battle with our old label, fired 2 managers, had a big record deal fall through, and Billy had a hand injury followed by a foot injury." Then they say thank you.
