Roger Waters

Roger Waters has been added to the big "Love for Levon" tribute that goes down next week (10/3) at the Izod Center. The onetime Pink Floyd guitarist/vocalist joins the likes of Gregg Allman, John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, John Prine, Warren Hayes, Garth Hudson, Grace Potter and more in the all-star band that will celebrate the life and music of Levon Helm who lost his battle with cancer back in April. A full list of performers for "Love for Levon" is below.

Tickets are still available and please remember that the whole show is a benefit with net proceeds from the concert helping support "the lasting legacy of Levon Helm by helping his estate keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue The Midnight Ramble Sessions." We are, however, also giving a pair away. Details on how to enter are below.

John HiattWith the Memorial Day holiday today, the new music release list is a bit shorter than usual in both length and star power. Of all the releases this week, I have enjoyed John Hiatt's new album Same Old Man the most. Hiatt is a legend as a songwriter, and this collection of songs is a prime example of his craft. He may be getting older, but he doesn't confuse maturity with sentimentality or nostalgia.

Other discs I have already heard and can strongly recommend this week include Malcolm Middleton's Sleight of Heart, Julie Ocean's Long Gone and Nearly There, and Walter Meego's Voyager.

At the top of my shopping list are the digital release of Mt. Eerie's Black Wooden Ceiling Opening and Ellen Allien's SOOL.

What are you picking up this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
