Black mirrors and social feeds have damaged our ability to connect on a deeply meaningful level. Alt-country/outlaw guitar-slinger Boo Ray delves deeply into the dire state of communication in the modern world with his new record, Tennessee Alabama Fireworks.

ON Sunday December 2, from 1:00-7:00 p.m., Out of the Fire Benefit presents a concert of live music performed by artists featured on the “Out of the Fire” benefit CD. The album, Out of the Fire, a CD of original music and cover tunes was created to help heal survivors of the 2017 fires. All proceeds are donated to the replacement and repair of musical instruments lost or damaged in the fire.

As was previously announced, legendary songwriter JACK TEMPCHIN has been nominated to The Songwriters Hall of Fame with the official induction ceremony set to take place in June 2019.

Shakedown Gallery is hosting "Drop The Mics: A Blotter Art Show". The exhibition will run as a pop-up gallery at 411 Haight Street from December 1- January 1.

Today, Joe Jackson reveals the second song from his upcoming studio album, "Fool." Undoubtedly musical, touchingly beautiful and lyrically powerful, "Strange Land" explores a sense of place in today's world.

This #GivingTuesday, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is launching the #into19 campaign. The goal of the campaign is to raise $125,000 by December 31st. The campaign is anchored by the idea that each gift and donation will make it possible for TWLOHA to reach new communities, share more stories, and connect thousands of people to the help they need and deserve.

Genre-melding quintet The Way Down Wanderers have announced the February 22nd release of their independent sophomore album illusions. Hailing from Peoria, IL, the group craft stories inspired by the heartland with a unique blend of sounds stemming from their varied musical backgrounds. Produced by Grammy winner David Schiffman (HAIM, Johnny Cash, Rage Against The Machine), this is not your average roots/rock record.

As part of a series of events and releases for their 50th anniversary, King Crimson's 2019 tour will include special concerts across three continents, including both festivals and headline shows.

Since the band's return to live performance in 2014, with critically acclaimed sell-out shows all over the world including two defining shows at the Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii, previously home to Pink Floyd, the audience has been reinvented, as much as the band itself:

Vintage Trouble came home to Hollywood to rock a sold-out crowd of adulate fans at the Troubadour nightclub. Lead singer Ty Taylor sang and danced like the ghost of James Brown, while guitarist Nalle Colt, bassist Rick Barrio Dill, and drummer Richard Danielson jammed blues rock like ZZ Top. Well, that might be a stretch, but not much of one and you get the idea. The band features a retro sound full of classic R&B, Soul and Blues rock riffs.

This long out of print live album, recorded in 1987 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles and The Warfield in San Francisco, has long been considered a rare and desirable jewel in the Garcia catalog because of both it's scarcity and the fact that it circled back to Jerry's acoustic pre-Grateful Dead roots. Roots which were forged in the crucible of the early 1960’s folk-revival.
