Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu Loves the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center

Constantly touring electro-experimentalists Xiu Xiu did a "Guest List" for Pitchfork yesterday -- and leader Jamie Stewart named the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center as his favorite venue.

Good thing, then, that the band is playing there on Monday night, March 31, with Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Berlin Whale and Matt Dill. (Thanks to Christian Schaeffer for the tip; read his show preview here.)

Thao will be doing an in-store at Vintage Vinyl at 5 p.m. on Sunday (and appearing on my radio show in the 1 p.m. hour on Monday).

In addition, Xiu Xiu -- along with Liars, Pattern is Movement, Evangelicals, Final Fantasy and more -- is going to have a Bjork cover on Stereogum's latest all-covers album, Enjoyed: A Tribute to Bjork's Post. Xiu Xiu's version of "Isobel" is out on the Web site Monday, March 31. Such synergy!
