Finding Nirvana in Early November...

Ranked #1 in Kerrang Magazine's "100 Gigs That Shook The World" and voted as "Nirvana's #1 Greatest Moment" by fans in an NME poll, Nirvana's historic August 30, 1992 headlining appearance at the UK's Reading Festival is one of the most bootlegged concerts in the annals of rock n roll. Now, fans will have an opportunity to own a pristine copy of that entire performance -- color-corrected video from the original film with audio sourced from the original multi-track masters. Nirvana Live At Reading will be issued in a limited edition CD+DVD Deluxe Edition as well as DVD-only, CD-only configurations on November 3, 2009, followed by a 2LP version on November 17, 2009.

Devendra Banhart to Play Ann Arbor's Ark...

Devendra Banhart's sixth album, What Will We Be, hits stores October 27th 2009. A follow-up to 2007's Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon, the new album promises to deliver the same indie-folk sound the singer-songwriter has been known for ever since his debut back in 2002. In support of the new album release, Banhart will also briefly hit the road this fall, embarking on a two-week North American tour that begins November 16th in Chicago.

Where Will We Be, Banhart’s label debut for Warner Brothers, was recorded in a sleepy Northern California town throughout the Spring of 2009 co-produced by Devendra and Paul Butler (from UK outfit Band Of Bees). The international media's acclaim and the size of his audience both at home and abroad earned by his debut Oh Me Oh My The Way The Day Goes By The Sun Is Setting Dogs Are Dreaming Lovesongs Of The Christmas Spirit was impressive to begin with and has increased dramatically with each subsequent release.

Tour Dates
16 Chicago, IL - Vic Theatre
17 Ann Arbor, MI - The Ark
19 Burlington, VT - Higher Ground
20 Boston, MA - Berklee
22 New York, NY - Town Hall
24 Philadelphia, PA - Electric Factory
25 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club
27 Toronto, Ontario - Queen Elizabeth Theatre
