This past Friday (6/17), My Morning Jacket, and Daniel Martin Moore played Chicago's Auditorium Theatre.
"...attired like Southern gentlemen in a sharp-shooting soul band, My Morning Jacket played with a woolly ferocity that nearly matched [front man; Jim] James' energy.
My Morning Jacket's 13-year career is less a linear progression than a tale of two bands; the earliest incarnation a group very much in the tradition of Southern rockers such as The Allman Brothers and beholden to the regional imperative to jam all night long on as many guitars as possible, the second configuration a quirkier outfit experimenting with pop, funk and reggae." [Greg Kot; Chicago Tribune]
Currently in the midst of a large-scale tour in support of their new LP Circuital, the band will be back in Chicago on August 6th to play Lollapalooza.

My Morning Jacket @ Terminal 5 in 2010 (more by David Andrako)
My Morning Jacket's new LP Circuital, hits stores today via ATO Records. The album was recorded in an old church-gymnasium in the group's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, and features the direction of super-producer/musician/composer Tucker Martine.
"The new record, Circuital, is named after the title song," explains Jim James, of My Morning Jacket's sixth studio album. "On that song I sing about ending up in the same place where you started out. And that makes a lot of sense for this album... I hate the phrase 'going back to our roots', but for this record we came home and made it in Kentucky. And it just felt a lot like it did when we were first starting out..."
Jim James on the Circuital recording sessions..
"There was no AC, no-one had their laptops. We recorded everything on tape. It was like, we're just who we are, with what we have with us at the moment, and that's all we have. It was a beautiful thing, and it really cemented what we all mean to each other, as people and as a band. We've learned, slowly over the years, how to function more healthily, I guess, so we don't all combust. Making this record, it felt like our friendship was only strengthened." [ATO Records]
My Morning Jacket will play the first show of their 2011 summer tour tonight; at home, at the Louisville Palace Theatre. American Express will be live streaming their performance as part of their 'Unstaged' series. Tune in here at 8PM CST to watch their set.
They'll hit Chicago on June 17th to play the Auditorium Theatre. Tickets are still available.
You can view the Circuital track listing, all 2011 tour dates, and more below...

Speaking of My Morning Jacket and streaming, they'll be streaming a live show on May 31st directed by Todd Haynes.
Speaking of Foo Fighters, Motorhead and El Mariachi Bronx, BBG writes, "there's something wrong with the world when Motorhead is hitting the road supporting Foo Fighters, but nevertheless they're doing that right now with Biffy Clyro. Those dates include a showing at the Hangout Festival and conclude when Foo Fighters hit Sasquatch on May 27th."
Foo Fighters are also planning a trip to the Northeast, and have announed more dates that include one in the NYC-area at Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ on 9/26. Tickets go on sale 5/20 at 10AM and support at the NJ date, as with all dates on that leg, will come from Rise Against (who just played T5 twice two weeks ago with Bad Religion) and Mariachi el Bronx (who recently played Highline Ballroom, are also playing Hangout, and are playing a boat as the Bronx).

Kathryn Calder on stage with The New Pornographers (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Kathryn Calder, possibly best known for her contributions to a certain supergroup that contains her uncle, is currently on the road with Himalayan Bear on the West Coast. The dates are in support of Are You My Mother?, her own album which dropped in August of last year.

Tickets go on AmEx presale at noon on Wed (5/11) and regular sale on Friday. All dates are listed below.
Meanwhile Neko Case is going about to embark on a dueling tour that kicks off on 5/11 in Rhode Island and makes a stop at Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock, NY one day later. If you're confused about the date of the Woodstock show, it might be because it was supposed to happen in February but was postponed due to bad weather. All current dates are listed below, Pitchfork Fest included.
The New Pornographers have upcoming dates at both the previously discussed B.O.M.B. Fest in CT on May 29, and Festival for Humanity in Vernon, NJ on May 30th.

Lollapalooza last year (more by Josh Darr)
Lollapalooza celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with some huge names on its just-announced lineup. See it in full below.
The festival has obviously changed over the years. What started out as a farewell tour for Jane's Addiction with a 'touring festival' lineup that included the Rollins Band, Nine Inch Nails, Butthole Surfers, and Souxsie & The Banshees, has turned into a one-weekend Chicago festival that Lady Gaga co-headlined last year. As leaked a while ago, Foo Fighters, Muse and Eminem all play this year, as will Coldplay, Cee Lo Green, and My Morning Jacket along with the reunited Cars and the continuing-to-be-reunited Big Audio Dynamite and Death From Above 1979, and a bunch of other bands which may or may not be worth the ticket price depending on how you feel about the headliners and generally seeing bands in big, hot, outdoor crowded parks (Lollapalooza happens in Chicago's Grant Park from August 5th - 7th).
Full 2011 Lineup and a couple of videos (one from 1991, one from 2010), below...
Lollapalooza 2010 (via @Chubys)
Lollapalooza 2011 will take place August 5th - 7th, in Chicago's Grant Park. The festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and they've pulled out all the stops in order to put on a great weekend.

Three-day passes can be purchase for $215, and single-day passes should be on sale shortly.
