A few new things to be excited about

The new Burn to Shine DVD should be available on August 23rd. Billboard has an article on it. This time around, it'll feature a house in Chicago with Wilco, Tortoise, Shellac and others turning in performances. The last one was pretty cool, with Bob Mould, The Evens and other D.C artists playing in the living room before the house was burned down.

The Lemonheads played a set at Benicassim. It's been almost 10 years since Car Button Cloth. is under construction. Could the new Evan/Lemonheads record be on the horizon?

Looks like the Catherine Wheel won't be returning anytime soon. However, Rob Dickinson's first solo album comes out on on Sept 13th.

I don't care what anybody says, the girls in Heart (yes, Barracuda) still have it. Their more recent stuff has been rather bland, but Nancy Wilson can still rock out. I was watching them on PBS Soundstage the other night. I fell asleep on the couch right at the end, during one of the Led Zeppelin encores. I awoke a few hours later, right in the middle of a dream where Nancy Wilson, Neil Young, and John Paul Jones were playing a live show for an album they'd recorded. As usual, I didn't remember details of the dream and performance, but I do remember being excited about it.
