As asked for in the comments section of this column yesterday, it is verified that those mysterious "Special Guests" listed with the Happy Hollows are, indeed, Architecture in Helsinki. They will play at The Echo tomorrow night before heading to Coachella. In a Happy Hollows MySpace bulletin posted at 11:15 a.m. this morning, they said: ""We are playing tomorrow @ The Echo w/ Architecture in Helsinki and The Ruby Suns! We'll be on first, so come early!!!!! Doors are at 8:30." No word on what time Architecture will start their set, but the Happy Hollows are way worth showing up for early at 8:30 p.m.

Also, if you can gather up enough courage to watch, ugh, Last Call with Carson Daly, then you'll see the Airborne Toxic Event playing tonight. This will be their TV debut, congrats. Also, Goldfrapp will be on Jay Leno this evening.
