Arts Roundup: ‘Whither Abbey Road?’ Edition
*Sliding deeper into debt, EMI makes moves to sell Abbey Road studios. (Last business year, the company sustained losses of £1.75 billion—which, I believe, is even more in dollars.) Paul McCartney, meanwhile, may back a bid to save the studio, the Independent reports.
*Preservation Hall Jazz Band drops a new one! Guests on this installment: Tom Waits, Merle Haggard, Del McCoury, Steve Earle, Andrew Bird, and Pete Seeger. Buddy Guy and Elvis Costello presumably were unavailable due to their appearance on Santana's forthcoming ¡Colaboración!
*L.A. Weekly recaps Carly Simon's romantic history, including such little-known conquests as Spiro Agnew and the 14th Dalai Lama. No word yet from Simon's lawyers.
*Tonight in City Lights: "Adam De Boer: Memory Meets Imagination Halfway" at District of Columbia Arts Center.
