Quick News

As mentioned a few weeks ago, Nine Inch Nails and Janes Addiction are hitting the road this Summer in a co-headlining joint. However, not like the tour will disappoint to begin with, they have added Street Sweeper as the opener. If the name is foreign to you, no worries, you know who is in it. Street Sweeper is the new band featuring Tom Morello (RATM, Audioslave, Nightwachmen). Morello will be joining his friends all summer with rumors that Street Sweeper and Jane's will be doing Lollapalooza in Chicago in August!

If you grabbed the latest Rolling Stone with U2 on the cover, you were also given another special treat. Hold Steady guitarist Tab Kubler showing off his photography skills, contributing his portraits of Leonard Cohen to the issue. Take a look at Tab's work, the issue is on new stands now.

Check out the cover to one of my favorite singer-songwriters Jarvis Cocker for his latest effort Further Complications, Cocker's Complications will arrive in May. I really love the cover to this record. Cocker's last effort was his long awaited solo debut, Jarvis, which was released in 2007.
