Widespread Panic

Legendary band Widespread Panic announces the long-awaited official release of Miss Kitty’s Lounge on May 20th. The album will be released on vinyl in independent record stores, digitally on Livewidespreadpanic.com and streaming everywhere.

Widespread Panic has postponed their Beacon Theatre run for the second time based on complications from COVID-19. The new dates are July 21-25, 2022, and were originally scheduled for January 13-17, 2022. Tickets for the rescheduled dates are available here.

The band shared the following message via their website:

Jerry Joseph is a musician who lives in Portland Oregon, but he’s often gone. He’s been inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame but is still rather obscure to a lot of people. He plays well over 150 shows a year in the usual places. Across America. Sometimes in Europe, Mexico, and Central America. Then there’s these other places he plays—Lebanon, Israel, Kurdish Iraq, India, and Afghanistan. All over the Middle East, often in war zones and refugee camps.

Originally scheduled in April of 2020, this run of Widespread Panic shows had been rescheduled twice and uniquely settled on some midweek shows in November at the Chicago Theatre. WSP’s second of a three-night run in Chicago was on Thursday night and they did not disappoint. The band took the stage 20 minutes after the 8 pm showtime, as ticketed, but early for Spreadheads.

Athens, Georgia four-piece New Madrid is set to return with their fourth full-length on April 30, 2021 via Lemonade Records. Produced by Drew Vandenberg (Bambara, Faye Webster), the eponymous 10-song set finds New Madrid revisiting the southern indie rock sounds of their 2012 Yardboat debut while exploring new elements of psychedelic folk, jangly pop, and energetic post-punk. “It feels like a cool re-set,” says bassist Ben Hackett. “This is the closest to what the band has always sounded like in our heads.”
