Jawbox to Reunite on Late Night TV?

Jawbox hasn't played a show in years, but there's a chance you'll be able to catch the band in action soon. Well, so long as you can stay up late enough.
Sources close to the band say that Jawbox will reunite on a late-night TV show to coincide with the reissue of the band's third and [...]

Slumberland Announces 20th Anniversary Show @ Black Cat

Sweater rockers of the greater D.C. area, it's time to start knitting! Slumberland has just announced a 20th anniversary concert at Black Cat.

Admittedly, as modern Nashville goes it ain't that bad. But as Rucker [...]

“Stipe-Syndrome” Considered

I really like Murmur. REM's 1983 debut full-length is no less than a stone classic–the band's single untouchable statement and it still stands up perfectly even after 25-years. Now that the album has been reissued as a double CD "Deluxe Edition" I own no fewer than three copies of it.
But I also recognize that Murmur [...]
