On the eve of their 20th anniversary as a band, southern jam rocker’s Widespread Panic had a difficult decision to make. The decision to dismiss their new lead guitar player George McConnell was most likely a mutual one.
Live From Alabama, the first full-length live album from Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, is set for a November 20 release on Lightning Rod Records/Thirty Tigers. The live set comes on the heels of receiving the award for SONG OF THE YEAR at the 2012 Americana Music Awards & Honors for his song “Alabama Pines”.
The newest studio release from Ben Sollee is now available. Half-Made Man, Sollee’s self-produced fourth studio album, was released today on Sollee’s own Tin Ear Records and distributed by Thirty Tigers.
This October, The National Jazz Museum in Harlem continues to offer a wide range of top quality free programming and affordable concerts from jazz’s most celebrated musicians, educators and historians.

Treasure Island is a weird place. Named after the Robert Louis Stevenson book, Treasure Island was constructed (yes, constructed) in the 1930s as an airport. When that idea was scrapped, it was converted into a location to hold California’s world’s fair in 1939-1940. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the island was converted into a full naval base. From then on the island was rarely used, sitting as a reminder of World War II to the many commuters crossing the Bay Bridge.
