Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit - SF, CA 8/4/07 Pt. 2

More pictures from Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's show at Cafe du Nord in San Francisco on 8/4/07.

Here's a link to yesterday's pictures.

Mighty fine time had by all. The crowd rocked hard and gave much love to Jason and n'em for bringing such quality, quality rock.

These guys are working damn hard on the road so make sure you get out there and see them even if its on a Monday night. Don't think that was really necessary to write 'cause from what I hear all the venues have been packed so far but Jason the 4-hunnerd ain't slacking so neither should we.

I going to stick some random music news in between some of the pictures before those stories get stale. Need to clean out the que some.

Oh, baby, I bet this will be good...

Plant, Krauss Cover Everlys, Waits On New Album:

"Robert Plant and Alison Krauss put their collaborative stamp on an eclectic repertoire of material on 'Raising Sand,' due Oct. 23 via Rounder. Among the tracks appearing on the T Bone Burnett-produced project are the Everly Brothers' 'Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On),' Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan's 'Trampled Rose' and 'Please Read the Letter,' first released on the 1998 Plant/Jimmy Page album 'Walking Into Clarksdale.'"

This should be interesting.

Keith Richards signs book deal:

"LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has signed a deal reportedly worth more than $7 million to write his autobiography, a tome that will trace his trek from cherubic choirboy to rock 'n' roll survivor."

Dolly Parton plans country album, world tour:

"NASHVILLE (Billboard) - Dolly Parton will release her first 'mainstream country' album in 17 years next February, and will promote it with a world tour, her manager said.

The disc will be the debut release for the country legend's new label, Dolly Records.

'She's going to be the only person on that label. We're not signing any other artists -- it's going to be strictly for Dolly Parton,' said Danny Nozell, who also serves as the label's general manager"

Neil Young to release graphic novel:

"Neil Young is set to release a graphic novel based on his album 'Greendale'.

The LP, which was released in 2003, was based on the story of Sam Green a fictional California teen with a growing sense of political activism."
