Out in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico, some 7,500 feet above sea level in the foothills of the majestic Sangre de Christo Mountains, strange and wonderful things were bubbling up when keyboardist Brian Haas and drummer Matt Chamberlain met in the magical adobe style Frogville Studios for three days of unadulterated improvisation.
September 30th, Bob Weir's first solo CD in ten years will be available for purchase. Titled Blue Mountain, this 12 track release is a personal collection of music inspired by the ranch stories and fireside songs of Bob’s youth, told with wisdom and heart. Weir will be touring nine dates with Aaron Dessner, Bryan Devendorf and Josh Kaufman.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the band's landmark 1991 self-titled release, Temple of the Dog - the Seattle supergroup featuring Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Mike McCready, and drummer Matt Cameron (who plays drums with both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam) - today released a special 25th-anniversary collection of the band's first and only album, newly mixed by Brendan O'Brien.
