Steve Earle and Wilco News

  • reviews the new release by ex-Band member Levon Helm Electric Dirt.
  • Steve Earle headed back to his native Lone Star Sate to play a show at the Sounds of Texas Music Series in Conroe, Texas.
  • Shout out to my friends, Kevin and Lisa from Memphis TN.  I met these fine folks in line for the Elvis Costello show at Amoeba Records in San Francisco and they referred me to the excellent Americana/Roots radio station out of Knoxville WDVX. They also mentioned they were big fans of Scott Miller and it only occurred to me later that I know the man and his work. Nice folks.
  • reviews the Wilco show at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA (I saw Willie there last year, it’s beautiful.) Jeff Tweedy apparently mixed it up with a lippy fan seated near the stage (though I kind of feel for the fan, the tickets and parking are frikkin expensive.)
  • If you missed the excellent VH1 Storytellers featuring that ‘lil ‘ol Band From Texas, ZZ Top which premiered last Saturday (June 27) you can watch the full episode at the VH1 site.
