I'm going to level with you, folks: It get difficult coming up with these introductory paragraphs week after week for these show posts, but luckily I just got a "word of the day" calendar to help keep it creative.

Miller was self-deprecatingly plugging his recent record, Written in Chalk. If he didn't sell more copies this evening that's because many o ... More >>
Stop smirking: The fact that St. Louis snagged a date on the being-routed Lilith Fair is kind of awesome. This year's list of artists playing some (or all) of the dates for the reactivated all-female-artists tour -- nothing's set in stone yet -- is bordering on the incredible: Heart! Cat Power! Lore ...
