First Rufus and Judy, Now Martha and Edith

So, I love Minneapolis and all, but I can't help noticing that we never get really awesome shows like Rufus doing Judy and now Martha doing Edith. At least the Rufus/Judy CD is OUT NOW! And maybe if my brother's lucky enough to get tickets, I can hear about the Martha show secondhand. Still, utterly unfair.

In other news, the Breeders have a new CD coming out on April 7, 2008! I can't imagine a better birthday present. Minneapolis just may redeem itself if the Breeders perform here as part of their album tour.

Kristin Hersh has a new single, "Slippershell," available for download as part of the Coalition of Artists & Stake Holders (CASH) Music Project. The single is great, as is the idea for the project, at least for those folks who have a reliably speedy internet connection.

I was amused that there's a fabulous quote from none other than Orrin Hatch on CASH's homepage:

If we can find some way to [stop filesharing] without destroying their machines, we'd be interested in hearing about that. If that's the only way, then I'm all for destroying their machines.

Man, Hatch is lookin' old!
