    After Beyoncé’s critically and commercially acclaimed Renaissance LP dropped last summer, the singer has not officially announced any tour dates in support. That said, this weekend Beyoncé hosted an all-expenses-paid luxury getaway in Dubai for journalists and influencers. The invite is ostensibly for the unofficial opening of Atlantis The Royal hotel and reads (per Pitchfork): “Beyoncé invites you to a weekend where your dreams become your destination. You and a guest are invited for epicurean feasts, beachside indulgences, and special reveal experiences including business class airfare, first-class ground transportation, and first-class accommodations at Atlantis The Royal.”

    Epic harmonizers Lucius — led by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig — have been on a tear recently. In 2021, they provided harmonies on Brandi Carlile’s In These Silent Days, and their featured track, “You And Me On The Rock,” came away with three Grammy nominations. More recently, they appear on Margo Price’s just-released album Strays (“Anytime You Call”). In April 2022, they released their fourth studio album, Second Nature, which was produced by Dave Cobb and Carlile. On Friday, Lucius appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show to perform album single “The Man I’ll Never Find,” which they recorded at “badass” Sheryl Crow’s house. Watch their performance and sit-down interview below.

    Last fall, Journey guitarist Neal Schon sued bandmate Jonathan Cain, accusing him of blocking access to “critical” financial records. Schon’s lawsuit accused Cain of refusing to give him access to records from an American Express account, through which “millions in Journey funds have flowed.” Now, Cain is countersuing Schon, accusing him of allegedly spending over $1 million on the band’s shared Amex, including $400,000 in a single month last year.

    Last summer, Scottish indie greats the Delgados announced a 2023 UK tour — their first time playing live since February 2005. Last night, the band played the first of those dates in Brighton at Concorde 2. They played a career-spanning set that drew from classics like 2002’s Hate, 2000’s The Great Eastern, 2004’s Universal Audio, and more. Watch some fan-shot footage of the Delgados’ reunion below.

    The lights at Massachusetts' Minnechaug Regional High School burn ever bright. They actually never turn off. They can't turn off. The smart lighting system for the entire building is broken, and it's stuck in the "on" position. It has apparently been this way for over a year now, and the electric bills are really starting to pile up.

    “We are very much aware this is costing taxpayers a significant amount of money,” the school district's assistant superintendent of finance, Aaron Osborne, told NBC News. “And we have been doing everything we can to get this problem solved.”

    The school's entire "green lighting system," some 7,000 lights, was installed over a decade ago and was supposed to save money, but according to the report, "the software that runs it failed on Aug. 24, 2021" and no one has been able to turn off the lights for the following 17 months. Teachers are adjusting by unscrewing light bulbs at the end of the day and throwing some breakers not connected to vital parts of the school. Dimming the lights to show movies or something projected on a whiteboard has also been difficult: The lights are on full brightness all the time.
