Courtney Barnett at Sasquatch 2015

Covering The Breeders' Cannonball has been a set staple on Courtney Barnett's current tour so it's no real surprise that she and Kim Deal might have a few things to talk about. The Talkhouse thought so, at least, and got the two together for the current edition of their podcast. Their insightful and funny hour-plus conversation touches on a lot of subjects: lyrical inspiration, guitar styles, drugs, what being 27 is like, and more. Have a listen below...

Prince Rama

South Street Seaport will be full of music on the Fourth of July, as they'll host the free Festival of Independence offering a wide variety of performers across three stages. Acts include singer-songwriter Freedy Johnston and indie rock band Elk City (featuring Luna's Sean Eden) on the Fulton Street Stage; Prince Rama and Salt Cathedral on the indoor Fulton Stall Market Stage; and over at the Peck Slip Stage there's Dolly Parton cover band Doll Parts and other twangy acts. The Seaport is also a good place to watch the fireworks. Full lineup and schedule below.

UPDATE: Elk City have unfortunately dropped off the bill.

Speaking of the Fulton Stall Market, the permanent indoor space is also host to Little Water Radio which broadcasts live every day from noon - 6 PM. There are shows from Northern Spy and Paper Garden records, and a host of other DJs (including this writer; my show "Past Future Perfect" is on Saturdays 2-4 PM Eastern). The space just opened the Market Bar which serves beer and wine. Little Water Radio is planning more live shows on Fulton Stall Market's stage this summer. Stay tuned.
