Mick Jagger talks White House gig; John Peel collection goes digital; Limp Bizkit signs with Cash Money

Mick Jagger was not nervous before singing for the President. (The Associated Press)
- Yesterday our own Chris Richards talked to Mick Jagger about his Tuesday night performance at the White House. He said he wasn’t nervous at all — “...every gig is a gig, right?” When asked about what current music he’s enjoying, Jagger mentioned the Black Keys’ latest, “El Camino.” When asked if he heard the Stones’ legacy in today’s music he replied: “Yeah! I think there’s some of the Stones’ legacy in that album. Maybe that’s why I like it.” Classic. Read the entire interview.

- The record library of late, legendary DJ John Peel is in the process of being converted into an interactive online museum. Sounds amazing.

- Limp Bizkit signs to Cash Money records? Can’t say we saw that one coming.

- You won’t have to travel to London to see D.C.’s. reunited kings of Gospel Yeh-Yeh, the Make-Up. But you will have to go to New Jersey. The band is playing as part of September’s I’ll Be Your Mirror USA 2012 festival, also featuring Afghan Whigs, the Roots, Hot Snakes, Dirtbombs and Louis C.K. We’re still hoping for that D.C. show Make-Up frontman Ian Svenonius hinted at when we talked to him last week.

- From today’s paper — a profile of Rana Santacruz , a Mexican singer-songwriter who brings to mind the likes of Tom Waits and and Calexico. He performs at Artisphere on Saturday. Plus, live review of Estelle at the Birchmere and Islands at the Black Cat.
