House of Rufus

House of Rufus will be released on July 18 and contain 19 discs including 6 studio albums, 2 concerts on CD, 4 discs of rarities/demos/collaborations/etc, and 6 DVDs. “All of this will be housed in a beautiful red velvet encased, 90-page hardback book containing rare and unseen photos, Rufus’ early hand-drawn tour posters, handwritten lyrics, four art prints and other memorabilia, extensive sleeve notes featuring interviews with Neil Tennant, Martha Wainwright, Linda Thompson and Lenny Waronker and an introduction by Rufus.” The set is up for pre-order now, and more details can be found on Rufus’s site.

Much more imminent are the two Kate McGarrigle tribute shows happening at NYC’s Town Hall in May. Check Ticketmaster for tickets to those.

No tickets needed for this one though:
