Soundgarden
As part of the iTunes Festival during SXSW, Soundgarden will play Superunknown in its entirety for the first time ever. The SXSW event will be streamed live via the iTunes store, available on all personal computers and mobile devices. The show will take place at Austin's ACL Live at the Moody Theater on March 13. The band already announced plans to reissue a 20th anniversary edition of Superunknown on June 3 that will include demos, rehearsals, b-sides and other rarities. In addition, the Superunknown singles and associated b-sides with newly interpreted artwork sleeves will be reissued for Record Store Day, on April 19, as a set of five limited edition vinyl records.

Pop duo Karmin have extended their #PulsesTour into the spring with 20 new dates. The new shows will begin on April 6 in Dallas and run through May 8 in Salt Lake City. A fan pre-sale is going on now and the general onsale starts Friday (2/28).

Katy Perry will take her Prismatic tour down under later this year. The singer is set to visit Australia with shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, all in November 2014. The North American leg of Perry's tour begins June 22 in Raleigh, NC.

The Hangout Music Fest announced new additions to its 2014 lineup including Gary Clark Jr., Matt and Kim, Dawes, Ozomatli, Tommy Trash, The Tontons, St Paul and the Broken Bones, Caked Up, Empires, Black Cadillacs, and The Electric Sons. The festival will take place May 16-18 on the beaches of Gulf Shores, AL. Artists previously announced to perform include The Black Keys, The Killers, Outkast, Jack Johnson, Queens of the Stone Age, Pretty Lights, The Avett Brothers, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, Wiz Khalifa, Zedd, Childish Gambino, Amos Lee, and many others.

The Global Citizen Nights is launching a new concert series in order to raise awareness of the global poverty epidemic. Dubbed Global Citizen Nights, the free concerts will kick off next month with The Fray, Allen Stone and Saints of Valory filling out the first bill, according to Billboard.com. The show will take place at Emo's East in Austin, TX on March 10. Other Global Citizen Nights are set to take place in Nashville, Chicago and St. Louis, though performers and dates are still to be announced. Tickets can be obtained by fans who take certain "actions" to help end extreme poverty, including signing the World Food Program USA's petition or watching a related video about extreme poverty at the Global Citizen website.

The National is set to make its debut as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on March 8. The band will join host Lena Dunham, who will also make her SNL debut.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of their debut album, Oasis will reissue their first three studio albums: 1994's Definitely Maybe, 1995's (What's The Story?) Morning Glory?, and 1997's Be Here Now. The first of the reissues, Definitely Maybe, comes out on May 20 as a three-disc set that will include rare and unseen footage and previously unheard tracks.

Upstart indie label Lanark Records is featured in the March issue of Goldmine Magazine. The Pennsylvania-based label focuses on the classic Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Blues, Americana and Roots sound. "We are so excited that Goldmine Magazine picked Lanark Records over hundreds of other labels to spotlight," says producer, musician and label President Quentin Jones. "They even listed Lanark Records on the cover, as well!"
