Beach Boys @ Jones Beach the other night (more by Greg Cristman)
As you know, Brian Wilson (who recently turned 70) is back with the Beach Boys who are currently touring in reunited form across the world, but Rolling Stone reports that Mike Love is already looking past this and booking shows that don't include Brian...
Love and Johnston have one show booked so far, in South America in October, as first reported by Peru's El Comercio.The Beach Boys play PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ tonight (6/27) and have international dates scheduled with Brian through 9/28 in London.
Another Beach Boys date was announced for October 6th at Winnie, Texas's Nutty Jerry's, but last night the venue announced the date was canceled. "The group that was scheduled to perform at Nutty Jerry's is not the same lineup as the current 'Beach Boys 50th Anniversary" tour,' the venue said in a statement. "As a result Nutty Jerry's did not feel that we could advertise the show as the 'original' Beach Boys. Nutty Jerry's regrets the misunderstanding and any inconvenience to our loyal customers."

Cedric Bixler-Zavala of At The Drive In @ RED 7 on 4/9
After an opening set by Zechs Marquise, At the Drive-In played their first show since 2001 (as it said on the show poster) at Red 7 in Austin last night (4/9). It was also the first in a series of pre-Coachella warm up shows that continue in Dallas (tonight) and then Marfa.
According to show promoter Transmission Entertainment, the surprise gig sold out in 11 minutes after being announced via Twitter the other day. In addition to all those packed inside, there were many listening from the alley outside. Though some complained that Omar Rodriguez Lopez seemed a bit out of it (update: his mother recently passed away), the band was generally high energy with Cedric hanging from the rafters of the newly refurbished club, and the crowd going insane. If you haven't seen it already, take a look at the setlist, along with more pictures from the Austin reunion show, below....
That's the cover art for the new feedtime box set coming out on Sub Pop in March. As we just wrote on BrooklynVegan, the Australian post-punk trio has reunited for a tour around the release, and that tour hits Beerland in Austin on April 5, 2012. Stay tuned for more details on the Texas show and head to BrooklynVegan for more info, videos and all dates.
Listen to a bunch of songs, as part of a mix compiled by Mudhoney's Mark Arm, below...
The top page of the Sleepytime Trio website:
Following the demise of Maximillian Colby, Sleepytime Trio was started with Drew Ringo (lead singer and guitarist of Maximillian Colby) on guitar and vocals, Ben Davis on bass guitar and vocals, and Jonathan Fuller on drums. Later in the summer of 1995, they added Dave Nesmith (also formerly of Maximillian Colby) on second guitar and vocals. The following summer, the band did a seventeen day/twenty show tour of primarily the eastern United States and parts of Canada. They also later toured Europe. In 1998, the band took an extended hiatus when Ringo relocated to Seattle and the remaining members went on to form Engine Down, The Rah Bras, Milemarker, and Bats & Mice and now Regents (punk rock band). In May 1999, they played the cities of Chapel Hill, DC, Philadelphia, Worcester, and New York in rapid succession. After taking yet another hiatus, they played several shows on the east coast again in December 1999 with hose.got.cable.Sleepytime Trio might want to consider firing their webmaster because it is definitely official, the DC band will reunite again for a the Slip + Lovitt SXSW party on March 15th. Details are forthcoming.
The show isn't the first time that Sleepytime Trio has reunited; the band played the Action Patrol reunion in Richmond in 2007 and played a surprise set at The Fest last year. Video from The Fest is below.
Video of Sleepytime Trio, then and recently, is below.
Well we can't say for sure, but now that the El Paso band are back together (!!!!!), it definitely seems like a strong possibility that Coachella is in the cards for At The Drive-In. UPDATE: It's true!
As far as Austin goes, here's hoping for at least one regular show in addition to any festivals too. And if they do play an Austin festival, please let it be a headlining slot at Fun Fun Fun Fest.
