J.D. McCorkle, the budding concert promoter extraordinaire, sent me a couple of pictures to post. Remember, J.D. I'm a lock for the Groupie Wrangler position:


Russellvillians Amber Arthur and T.A. sent me some pictures from their front row experience.

I don't think that chub fist in the last pic got to stay for the entire show.


Our dear, sweet Maddy mixes the rock with relationships in her review of the two shows.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Going south in any direction: Jason Isbell’s roots show everywhere he plays < PopWire | PopMatters:

"LEXINGTON, Ky. — He is, in every sense of the shopworn rock ‘n’ roll term, a road warrior.

For example, Alabama rocker Jason Isbell was playing a gig two Saturdays ago “on top of a mountain in Utah.” Then, Isbell and his tour-tested, meat-and-potatoes band, The 400 Unit, were coming to Lexington.

“Isn’t that crazy?” Isbell mused via phone, having spent the afternoon driving through Wyoming."


Lauderdale in the studio:


Music / Technology - Apple joins forces with record labels:

"Apple is working with the four largest record labels to stimulate digital sales of albums by bundling a new interactive booklet, sleeve notes and other interactive features with music downloads, in a move it hopes will change buying trends on its online iTunes store.

The talks come as Apple is separately racing to offer a portable, full-featured, tablet-sized computer in time for the Christmas shopping season, in what the entertainment industry hopes will be a new revolution. The device could be launched alongside the new content deals, including those aimed at stimulating sales of CD-length music, according to people briefed on the project."
